Balmain: SS16 Campaign

You better work! Supermodel! Yes! And what’s better than one supermodel? Three of them, of course. And none of those ones on the edges of supermodel-dom, but Cindy, Claudia and Naomi – the most super of all the supers. No surnames required. For they are the faces of Balmain’s SS16 campaign, photographed by the equally iconic Steven Klein – giving cracking face as they show off Olivier Rousteing’s frilly Spring collection. Mr Rousteing was naturally very excited about it all. “When I was a schoolboy in Bordeaux, it was their editorials that first made clear to me the amazing transformative power of fashion. Still today, many years on, their iconic images are often found amongst the jumble on mood boards in my (and almost every other designers’) atelier. To say that working with them was a dream come true is no exaggeration,” he said. I mean, there’s not much more to say. Enough to make you consider a full facial transformation via the magic of plastic surgery.
