Rampling, 68, stuns in ad, English actor who has appeared in films like Georgy Girl, Stardust Memories, Angel Heart, The Night Porter, The Wings of the Dove, and Swimming Pool, is looking impeccable in the fall 2014 campaign for Nars lipstick.
Shot for the Audacious Lipstick Collection ads, Charlotte Rampling was photographed by François Nars in New York City.
“Charlotte’s ability to transform is unparalleled,” he told WWD. “Whether captured in pieces of artwork, through the lens of a magazine photographer or on the big screen, she has an amazing power to encompass a character, ” he added.
James Kaliardos took care of the makeup and Didier Malige was in charge of hair. The ad will appear in major fashion titles including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour for the September issues.
It’s part of a growing trend for mature actresses to take the spotlight as the stars of major beauty campaigns. Earlier this year Marc Jacobs unveiled Jessica Lange as the face of his new beauty line. The fashion world is also getting on the act: in January American Apparel shot a lingerie campaign with 62-year-old model Jacky O’Shaughnessy while Linda Rodin, a 64-year-old model and businesswoman, starred in the lookbook for the Pre-Fall 2014 collection for The Row.
