François Nars’ passion for fashion, beauty, and photography surfaced at a young age. Born in the South of France, he pored over his mother’s Vogue magazines and developed a profound appreciation for the elegance and sophistication of the designers, models, hairstylists, and makeup artists of the '60s and ’70s. He soon moved to New York City, where he became part of an elite corps of creatives that shaped exciting and edgy looks for top designers and publications. His unique style of artistry quickly garnered recognition from the industry, with his work appearing on multiple Vogue covers, in Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, and Marie Claire, among others. #NARS25
Since 1996, François Nars has personally photographed every NARS campaign in his signature style – characterized by bold imagination, unabashed individuality, and keen insight. Collaborating with many of the world’s most unique and iconic women to realize his singular vision, François lives to inspire self-expression, creativity, and artistry. #NARS25
