Is Rita Ora the modern-day Marilyn Monroe? Roberto Cavalli certainly thinks so. The designer tapped the saucy songstress to be the face of his Fall ’14 campaign, in which she appears pinup glam with platinum locks. An exclusive look at the Francesco Carrozzini-lensed ads debuts above. “I love Rita’s energy—she’s strong, charismatic, and she’s a Renaissance woman,” Cavalli told Style.com. “I chose to portray her as a modern-day Marilyn, a contemporary interpretation of iconic sensuality.” Does this mean Mr. Cavalli prefers blonds?
Earlier this week, the Spring ’14 Givenchy ad campaign debuted on Style.com, inciting a storm of clicks and commentary for its all-women-of-color cast. It turns out, Givenchy is not the only label to take that step this season. Swiss label Philipp Plein has just released its own Spring campaign, shot by Francesco Carrozzini and styled by Patti Wilson, featuring a cast of black models. As the saying goes, two’s a coincidence, but three’s a trend—time will tell if diversity on the page continues. For Plein in particular, at least, it’s more than a passing fancy: The designer cast his Spring ’14 show in Milan with exclusively black models.
