Vamp Lives

Nars Cosmetics Spring '08 collection evokes the 20's Vamp, a look we know all too well on the Silent Screen. Smoldering, mysterious, and seductive. Yes! Nars captures the trademarks of the 20's Vamp... thin straight brows, smoke covered eyes over a hypnotic stare, and the blood stained lip~ ready for her next prey. I find it fascinating and somewhat appropriate that they chose model Lydia Hearst as the face of the collection. She of course, is the great-granddaughter of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst.

Alla Nazimova, Anna May Wong

Louise Brooks, Pola Negri

Natasha Rambova, Theda Bara

Oh, be still my heart. Now I love Francois Nars even more than I thought possible. And the photos you picked are purr-fect. It's like you wrote this post just for me!

I know, insane, right?! Can you think of any vamps that I might be forgetting?

No, I think you covered all the great ones! I have got to get to the NARS counter tomorrow... Leaving the credit card at home, though.
