Quantcast

To Boldly Go…

May 26th, 2009 Posted by Janelle comments (28)

Givenchy steps into fresh territory for F/W 09, enlisting Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to create a quintessentially French scene of beauties lounging in the Château de Ferrières. As always Mariacarla Boscono is front and center but she is joined by Iris Strubegger and much buzzed about newcomer Ranya Mordanova, whose signature crop and natural austerity make her a perfect fit for the house. On the menswear side, newcomer Manuel Ramos does his first tour of duty for the brand, Simon Nessman completes his 3rd season for the brand while Jakob Wiechmann does his second; the boys certainly look edgy in Tisci’s naval inspired vision for men.

Perhaps the most eye-catching surprise is Adriana Lima‘s goth makeover, building on her surprise runway revival at the F/W show the Brazilian bombshell is given the Mert & Marcus treatment and looks more high fashion than she has in years.

    LOVE IT! A new take on something familiar. The stares are to die for. Adriana…. werking it. Incredibly seductive, the whole lot. I feel some “Species” activity coming on, only with romance and one would live to tell the tale.

  13. Larapixie says:

    fantastic!

  14. Ambigous says:

    These shots are amazing, Ranya looks like a Baby Vampire and effortlessly Creepy. Like she just sat there and inhabit the look of what Givenchy is going for….Maria Carla is impressive too, she looks very powerful and Andrgynous….

    Oh shoot, that’s Adriana Lima….lol. The VS model, putting a lard of make up to be high fashion lol…..that’s the vibe I’m getting from her…

  15. JASON KANNER says:

    I m hoping all these posters work for FABIEN BARON or DOUG LLOYD. iF NOT, WHAT A WASTE OF TYPING

  16. Ambigous says:

    I work for myself. I love Fashion and I am obssessed with Supermodels.

  19. push says:

  20. damnthatlion says:

  23. Lah says:

    I don’t like Ranya, but love Adriana. MCB looks like Georgina,no?

  24. Christopher Y says:

    WOW… I can’t take my eyes of this ad campaign… it’s STUNNING!!!!!!!!!

  25. Mark says:

    Adriana can be anything: from a sensual babe for VS to a sexy vampire for Givenchy.
    I agree she’s way more exotic than Gisele, and a better model too…
    She maybe doesn’t know how to pic the right campaings…
    But this time!…Oh my Lord, she’s on TOP!
    <3 her!

  26. prabal says:
