Naomi Campbell Stars for the First Time for Vivienne Westwood’s Campaign
It’s been 33 years in the making and its as iconic and punk as we expected.
When you think of Vivienne Westwood and Naomi Campbell, you’re likely to remember Campbell tripping in her monstrous heels at Westwood’s AW93-94 Fashion Show. But now the pair have come together again, and this time it is in the form of the designer’s latest campaign. Although Campbell and Westwood have worked together many times since that iconic runway show, SS20 marks the first time the model stars in a Westwood’s campaign: a series which has been 33 years in the making.
Known for her extravagant pieces, Westwood was inspired by mythology for this shoot. Now 49-year-old Campbell is captured wearing a red gown and statement white gloves while carrying the branch of a tree. Elsewhere she is wearing nothing but a tulle layered hat, a necktie and brown heels.
Shot on the alleys and backstreet’s of Paris’ 18th district against a white wall lit up by neon lights, the campaign also features Westwood herself, her fashion designer husband Andreas Kronthaler, and model Kandioura Fissourou, all captured by fashion photographer Juergen Teller.
Campbell said of the campaign:
“I believe things in life come along when they are meant to. It’s taken 33 years to do a Westwood Campaign and I’m so happy to be doing it in my 49th year. It’s meant to be when its meant to be.”
