Wow, Gisele gets pretty badass in the new Balenciaga campaign.
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen made quite the statement earlier today, showing off a new buzz cut in a preview of Balenciaga’s Fall 2014 ad campaign. Although the model is appearing in several other brand’s fall campaigns, such as Pucci, Isabel Marant, and Stuart Weitzman, this isn’t the model’s first time working with Balenciaga, as she made a rare appearance walking in their February Fashion Week show in NYC.
Serving as muse for artistic director Alexander Wang, Gisele reveals a new edgy transformation in the black and white campaign shot by Steven Klein. Wang revealed the inspiration behind the shoot to WWD:
“This is how I see Gisele for Balenciaga; strong, powerful, mysterious and uncompromising.[…] This season we worked with this idea of vanity, staged in a room filled with mirrors. But the cracked mirror is a continuing thread from the marble veins and creeping ivy leaves from seasons past.”
The full campaign black and white/color images will be released this September. The 33-year-old is known for her signature blonde locks, leaving many to wonder if she indeed has shaved her head – specifically since she is the current face of Pantene hair care.
Do we – and more importantly Tom Brady – love it?
