Of all of the ephemeral superstars created in Andy Warhol's factory, perhaps none are quite as loved as Edie Sedgwick. The ‘60s it girl was, as Vogue so aptly put it, a "youthquaker"-trendsetting with her affinity for thick black eyeliner, false eyelashes, opaque tights and boatneck sweaters. With the NARS Edie Sedgwick collection in honor of Andy Warhol, we can finally perfect that defined eye and pouty nude pink lip and attempt to channel our favorite socialite.
In creating the Nars Andy Warhol holiday collection of pop-inspired cosmetics, beauty maestro François Nars drew upon some of the more iconoclastic characters in Warhol's sphere-among them, one of the Silver Factory's most ethereal muses, Edie Sedgwick.
From the treasure chest of Interview Archives, we questioned another of Andy's superstars, Baby Jane Holzer, on the magic of Edie Sedgwick.
A factory favorite, it is only fitting that Edie should have her own makeup set in NARS' new Andy Warhol collection. Encased in a 16mm film canister, the film Warhol used for his series of screen tests, the "Edie" set includes matte nude lipstick, a peach and peach-pink blush duo, and a cream eyeshadow with a little bit of sparkle, perfect for layering under the set's eyeliner stylo. Forget Halloween, we want to look like Edie all year round.
