Many of us are too young to remember the reign of the 80’s supermodels, but a quick google search will clearly show why they were so special. They were gorgeous, talented and did not get out of bed if the money wasn’t right. From magazine covers to editorials, from campaigns to music videos as well as commercials they were like Visa, everywhere you want to be. The 80’s were about extragance and these ladies were the epitome and could do no wrong.
For this reason, we were beside ourselves when we got our first look at the Balmain Paris Spring/Summer 2016 Ad Campaign. Three supermodels that can still slay women half their age had been casted to show off Balmain’s exquisite designs! Proving that age is really just a number Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer brought the heat to spring’s hottest fashions.
The campaign was lensed by Steven Klein with Pascal Dangin as art director. Oliver Rousteing has been teasing fashion fans for a few days now asking were they ready for 2016. Whether they were ready for it or not Oliver put the hammer down and dropped the proverbial fashion mic. With an one-two punch Rousteing seamlessly introduced the fashion world to as he described via Instagram, “iconic history” that involved a true “dream team.” We couldn’t agree more with his sentiments and are thrilled as well as in awe as to what has been created.
As diversity in the fashion world continues to be spread why not toss in the age factor as well? Women do not stop being fashionable entities after the age of 25 even if they are considered veterans in the modeling industry at such a tender age. Therefore, let’s continue to celebrate beauty in all of its numerous forms regardless of color or numerical identification.
