Earlier this month, NARS Cosmetics launched their new range for Fall 2010… and what do you think we spotted within the latest ad-campaign for the beauty brand… No other than the structural leather bodice from Vauxhall Fashion Scout designer, Una Burke’s RE.TREAT Collection. Modelled by style icon, Daphne Guinness, Una’s carcass-like creation is covered with an assortment of crystals and diamonds whilst complimented by the striking shade of purple that lies on Daphne’s eye lids; an eye-shadow colour which has since been named after her.

During a recent interview, Una told us how excited she was when her work was requested by the cosmetics company for the campaign and that Daphne Guinness “was someone incredible whom I've always wanted to wear my work.”


The campaign was styled by Patti Wilson and shot by photographer, make up artist and founder of NARS Cosmetics, Francois Nars, who has cleverly used mirrors to reflect Una’s piece and Guinness’ image from every angle, creating a kaleidoscopic projection of style and beauty.
