Marcel, the French Bulldog and “face” of Nars (a line of beauty products) crossed the rainbow bridge yesterday at the ripe old age of 15. Marcel was one of the first Famous Frenchies we featured here on Batpig & Me, and holds a special place in our hearts.

Marcel, the longtime canine companion of legendary makeup artist François Nars, fronted the brand’s Pro-Prime campaign in 2010; he also “participated” in a Twitter chat. “To our beloved Marcel who brought us so much joy and happiness over these years,” Mr. Nars wrote in tribute. “We will miss him very much.” So will we — a poster of his wrinkled little face hangs near our desks, and he unknowingly made us happy from afar.
More photos of Marcel (many involving funny hats) can be found in Au Revoir Marcel, The Nars Dog: Loss of a Beauty Icon on Refinery 29.
