Warhol Foundation takes on cosmetics with Nars
NEW YORK (AP) - Francois Nars had Andy Warhol coffee table books in his living room and Yves Saint Laurent in his closet growing up in the '70s in the south of France.
"I always feel so terrible for the people who got born after that era because there was something really in the air that was unexplainable," the makeup legend said, lounging in the lobby of a Midtown hotel for a recent interview.
"There was something very, very free. Today, everything is so much more controlled and so much more prepared," he said.
Fear not, post-Baby Boomers. In this, the 25th anniversary year of Warhol's death, Nars' namesake company has taken on the pop icon's silvery Factory, silkscreened superstars and avant-garde films in a limited-edition cosmetic collection, exclusive to Sephora stores until Nov 1.
