Whoever casts models for Givenchy was evidently feeling indecisive when picking beauties for the French fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2016 campaign, because they just went ahead and cast 27 of them for the shoot.
Shot in lower Manhattan, the shoot starred the likes of Miranda Kerr, Joan Smalls, Candice Swanepoel, Natalia Vodianova, Lara Stone and Gemma Ward; as well as up-and-comers like Lexi Boling, Imaan Hammam and Lineisy Montero.
The multiracial, trans-generational cast was picked to illustrate the themes of unity and diversity that Givenchy creative director, Riccardo Tisci, has been so keen to push lately. The campaign also includes a poem by singer Anohni that reads: “I am a child on the river, and love waits downstream: a waterfall to steal my breath, and change my mind.”
