The divine Tilda Swinton, the most famous and beloved of David Bowie's clones, will be the face of Nars this spring.

WWD reports that Swinton will appear in four portrait-style ads, each of which reps for a specific collection. She'll be styled differently for each. "As an actress, she brings such strong personality to the camera," François Nars (who shot the ads himself) told WWD. "And as a woman, she lives the experience of transformation and expression." He added that he admires her "bold style." Don't we all, François?

Wouldn't have figured the famously alabaster-skinned, cucumber-cool Swinton as the face of the company most famous for its rather obvious "orgasm" blush, but maybe they're trying to go against type, here. Not that I'm gonna complain!
