Bella Hadid Returns As The Face Of Giuseppe Zanotti

BellaBella is back! Not that she ever went away really, but as far as Giuseppe Zanotti are concerned, she has reprised her role as face of their new campaign, delivering some long-legged realness alongside Kit Butler. Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and styled by Carine Roitfeld, the series of photographs evoke the idea of an endless summer – difficult to get your head around in January we know, but an encouraging thought nonetheless.

Stripped back and minimal, the portraits are unapologetically bold, with Bella flaunting her usual peerless elegance in a simple black bodysuit and an assortment of delightful footwear. Cue Kendra, Eliza, Aleesha and Agnes – the sisterhood of slingbacks, cut-out boots, neoprene stilettos and slides that make up the latest offerings from Zanotti, with one more beautiful than the next.

“And then there’s Bella,” said Giuseppe Zanotti of the new campaign, “back for a second season, who brings with her a rock-and-roll attitude that’s also playful and seductive. The overall effect is compelling, contemporary, arresting”. Watch the backstage video below and dare to disagree.
