When we learned Naomi Campbell was set to appear in Givenchy’s fall campaign, we were curious. When we heard last week that she’d be roaring in the ads and looking like a “dark ’50s pinup girl”, we just got downright excited. So here it is, the first look at Givenchy’s fall campaign, but really, who’s looking at the clothes?
The collection is inspired by wild animals, so Campbell seems the obvious choice seeing as she is perhaps the most feisty model out there (and she’s had some experience with animal themes before). The campaign was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and features the famously catty diva along with models Natalia Vodianova, Kristen McMenamy, and Mariacarla Boscono.
The models are unique choices considering they’re an even mix of young (Vodianova and Boscono) and old (Campbell and McMenamy). But you’d never know Campbell’s age from looking at the ad: sporting what seems to be a velvet bodysuit — it’s clear she’s still got it.
In addition to the two photos released today (one of Campbell and one of male model Johnathon Marquez), there’s a great behind-the-scenes video on the making of the campaign. It includes creepy pictures of wolves and dogs, the collection’s inspiration, and a lot of funny shots of models looking awkward (albeit pretty flawless) as they growl for the cameras.
