Givenchy’s Latest Ad Campaign Features A Brazilian Transgender Model

08May10

It’s hard to decide which of the 10 models in the new Givenchy ad campaign looks the coolest. Catherine McNeil’s hair has been dyed bright red, Malgosia Bela’s locks are pink and Mariacarla Boscono is about to engage in what we’re sure would be a hot makeup session with a fellow lady catwalker. Basically, there’s a lot going on. Perhaps the most interesting facet of the campaign, however, is Lea T., Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci’s longtime personal assistant and former fit model who’s also a transgender person. Tisci told WWD that Lea, formerly known as Leo, has “always been very feminine: super fragile, very aristocratic,” and she embodies the androgyny of Givenchy

O estilista Riccardo Tisci, da Givenchy, escolheu a transexual brasileira Lea T. (antes conhecida como Leo) para participar da campanha de outono-inverno da marca.Tisci explicou que a inclusão de uma transexual na campanha marca a dicotomia masculino-feminino que sempre permeou seus trabalhos. Lea T. é assistente pessoal de Ricardo Tisci, mas não pretende seguir a carreira de modelo.
“Ela sempre foi bem feminina: superfrágil, muito aristocrática. Ela é parte da família”, contou o estilista ao site especializado em moda Women Wears Daily.
A campanha, que sairá na edição de julho da L’Uomo Vogue, foi fotografada por Mert Alas e Marcus Piggott, em Paris.
