Givenchy Autumn Winter 2010 Ad Campaign Starring Transgender Model Lea T

Fab Ad: Givenchy, Autumn 2010

Autumn campaigns are starting to emerge and we begin with a slightly controversial Givenchy campaign. Ricardo Tisci has recruited a transexual model for the ads known as Lea T. (previously Leo) who was also the fit model for his own line. Ricardo commented, "She’s always been very feminine: superfragile, very aristocratic. She’s part of the family." Mariacarla Boscono also appears in the images along with Malgosia Bela and Joan Smalls. Fashion campaigns have become increasingly androgynous so it makes sense for Ricardo to recruit someone who "exemplifies the masculine-feminine dichotomy that has become one of his design signatures." However, the results might be a little edgy for some. I can't wait to hear what you think of this one.
