To celebrate 15 years of iconic beauty for his celebrated brand, Francois Nars launched the NARS 15X15 Project. The centerpiece of the project is the 15X15 book, featuring 15 celebrity portraits, each inspired by a NARS product shade and based on an iconic reference chosen by François (who personally did the makeup and photographed every portrait).
Marc Jacobs & Daphne Guinness
On November 12, 2009 at 8PM EST, the NARS 15X15 website (15X15Project.com) went live, making available for purchase the book and select individual portraits. 100% of the proceeds from the project will be distributed among the 15 charities chosen by the participating celebrities.
