Exclusive: Cavalli Confidential
In September, Roberto Cavalli’s Spring collection of floral pleated skirts and gold-sequined numbers had editors’ jaws on the floor by the end of the show. Here, in this behind-the-scenes video taken at the Spring ’12 ad campaign shoot at New York’s Pier 59, we get a closer look at those embossed python jackets and silk printed dresses that impressed us in Milan. The Steven Meisel-lensed campaign, with makeup by Pat McGrath and hair by Guido Palau, features Cavalli’s muses-of-the-moment: Naomi Campbell, Karen Elson, Kristen McMenamy, and Daphne Groeneveld—women he chose because they “embody the standards of a modern appeal.” They are looking like Cavalli goddesses to us. The collection hits stores next month.
