NARS Q&A With Daphne Guinness

It was only fitting that Nars chose to name an eyeshadow after his muse, Daphne, a color that is as bold and beautiful as the woman for whom it was named. To magnify the arresting impact of the magnificent Ms. Guinness, Nars designed and photographed her in a kaleidoscope of mirrors, creating a virtual funhouse of reflective images.
