Francois Nars might had finished off this year with the eternally smoking Charlotte Rampling representing his equally sultry Fall Collection, so wise of him.
But, he's starting the New Year with an actress who's just as clean, classy, timeless, yet bold, the striking Tilda Swinton.
Simplicity may be the key for both Tilda and NARS' Spring 2015 Collection. Still, simplicity doesn't mean weak. Both the Tilda and the Spring Collection speaks volume of quality.
