Supermodel Naomi Campbell is starring in the Spring 2017 Givenchy campaign with model Justin Levy for their jeans. What’s better than denim on denim? Melanin on melanin.
Fashion photography duo Luigi Murenu and Iango Henzi shot the black and white images of Naomi and Justin. Ricardo Tisci, the Creative Director of the Haute Couture, ready-to-wear and accessories lines for Givenchy and Carine Roitfeld, the former Editor-In-Chief of Vogue Paris and Creator of CR Fashion Book, were responsible for the creative direction.
One shot showcases a topless Naomi on Justin’s shoulders. The ad, posted on Instagram, looks eerily reminiscent to one of Kim Kardashian’s bathroom pics, but is a better example of how to do topless tastefully.
Naomi shows us how a true fashion icon does it with while servin’ some serious collarbone action. Who’s even looking at the skin-tight jeans?!
The solo shot of Naomi, 46, shows off her perfectly toned obliques and flawless weave. The black and white shots really highlight her angular cheekbones and overall physique.
Justin effortlessly wears patchwork, distressed denim jeans, while cradling his face in the crevice of his forearm with an alluring gaze.
This ad is giving an amalgamation of 90’s high fashion morphed into modern day trends, and not just because they used Naomi. The focus is strongly on the models’ ability to highlight the clothes in an aspirational, yet sellable, type of way.
Even at an age that renders most models obsolete, Naomi has been slaying high-fashion campaigns and magazine covers, like last spring’s Balmain campaign, alongside other 90’s supermodels like Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford.
