Serge Lutens - Photographer
Serge Lutens - photographer, perfumer, designer...Most famous, perhaps, for his make-up ads for Dior in the 70s and 80s and his Shiseido ads.

I've heard his name before, not exactly sure what he did...
it's interesting to know he was a multi-task type of artist!

Thanks for creating this thread, ilj!

What's theblitzkids.com? It doesn't work for me...

He seemed very praised by the club kids of the past decades
I can see a bit of Pierrot influence in the ads he did, and a makeup style that Pat McGrath still tries to achieve very often on Dior runways...

Yeah, you're right about that. More from French Elle 1975. This make-up is spookier than usual, even

i love this, the colors and the beautiful "clown" feeling,
it's so elegant and melancholy but with that funny kind of edge.
thank you for this thread ilj!
