Dazed and Confused did a spooky themed issue last year, marrying high fashion and the macabre in time for Halloween. It featured Chloe Moretz, who was fresh from her re-make of Stephen King’s Carrie as its raven haired, goth cover girl and was full of dark editorials.

Makeup Artist and Photographer Francois Nars

Francois Nars is an icon in the fashion world.  He’s done the makeup for such photographers like Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Steven Meisel, Ellen von Unwerth and more – he helped establish the 80’s big brows and earth tones by doing covers of Brooke Shields and early Cindy Crawford.  His makeup line, NARS, has consistently ranked best-selling since it was established in 1994.  The picture above is from NARS’ Fall 2014 campaign of the ethereal and wondrous Tilda Swinton, taken by Francois Nars himself.  When I think of him, I always go to this great editorial from Jane Magazine in 1997 of some of the Supers in costume, photographed and made up by Nars.  The Shalom Harlow pictures still make me swoon.
