Ooh là là! Artist Konstantin Kakanias ( inset, above) brings makeup to illustrated life in a new collab with Nars that includes a Lip Cover in Get Dirty ($28, above) and a Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Deep End ($29, right). "Beauty has no rules," someone glamorous once said, and certainly photographer-turned- cosmetics mogul François Nars would agree. Nars Summer 2016 Collection: Under Cover, the latest iteration of the company's annual fab-collab between M. Nars and a preeminent artist or designer (past honorees have included iconic photographer Steven Klein and Brit-fashion darling Christopher Kane), is an all-out callout to the home of FN's youth: the south of France. With a modern-day edge, of course. "The Côte d'Azur is deeply beautiful," says Nars. "The culture there reminds me of the glamour of old Hollywood movies. There is adventure, art, and always, always fashion." With names such as "Overheated" (lip cover), "Topless" (eye shadow), and "Sexual Content" (blush, yes!), the prod- ucts deliver just the kind of sultry swank that insatiable beauty lovers crave. And who better to convey that sensibility than Athens-born socialite and artist Konstantin Kakanias, 54, who designed the packaging. "Konstantin's sense of energy and play in his compositions is so clever and still so chic," says Nars. "He was the perfect collaborator." "I was invited by François to an imaginary weekend in the south of France photo- graphing beautiful girls," says Kakanias, whose fanciful drawings and ceramics are collected by the crème de la crème of the international jet set. "I tried to imagine the whole situation… and say, 'Have fun. Be chic. Be daring.'" Fait accompli. The Forum Shops at Caesars, 702-749-1525; . "I worshIp beauty. It Is one of the great gIfts of lIfe." —konstantin kakanias REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS CHIC THE HEAT AND HAUTEUR OF THE FRENCH RIVIERA INSPIRES NARS'S LATEST COLLECTION. photography courtesy of nars 78 Style collab
