The Six New Faces Of Louis Vuitton

Out with the ‘old’ and in with the ‘new’… and in this case, the very new.  Zuzanna Bijoch, Daphne Groeneveld, Gertrud Hegelund, Nyasha Matonhodze, Anaïs Pouliot and Fei Fei Sun, were announced as the new faces of Louis Vuitton. For the past two seasons, Louis Vuitton has championed more ‘experienced’ models… the Spring / Summer campaign featured – Kristen McMenamy, 46, Raquel Zimmermann, 28, and Freja Beha Erichsen, 23. Then Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell took to the catwalk Fall. And if you recall… this was the collection that attracted criticism when Moss smoked a cigarette back in February.

Changing it up, in this campaign the average age of the ladies is 18. The fresh faced models were shot by renowned fashion photographer, Steven Meisel, for the luxury French fashion label’s Autumn/Winter 2011 campaign. Of the campaign, Marc Jacobs said, “Steven Meisel and I met and decided we would do this wonderful story of beautiful vintage cars, little dogs and fresh-faced young women. It’s a very classic scenario, and of course it suggests travel, but I think we gave it a fresh, modern and sometimes a little bit naughty, tongue-in-cheek spin.”
