He appears as 1960s supermodel China Machado in a photograph taken by legendary photographer Richard Avedon, who has always been an inspiration to François. “China is wearing bright red polish in her 1959 photo, so I wanted Marc to do the same—plus he’s always up for anything,” says François.

Naomi Campbell as an Iconic Supermodel wearing Taj Mahal Blush

Naomi Campbell was an overnight sensation when she began her career in the mid-eighties, changing the face of the industry as the first black model to appear on the covers of French, British, and Japanese Vogue. She was famously filmed for George Michael’s Freedom ’90 video, as well as for Madonna’s Erotica video, and has appeared on over 100 magazine covers. She is a supermodel in the truest sense. Naomi is the epitome of glamour in an Olivier Theyskens for Nina Ricci dress, and Taj Mahal Blush, a burnt orange with shimmer. “Naomi is one of the most iconic symbols of beauty today, and I wanted to use a makeup color that would show this by name and by hue. It’s a bright shade, but sheer, so it looks very natural and yet, ultra-glam—just like her,” says François. Proceeds to benefit White Ribbon Alliance.
