Youíre known for your interesting choices for faces of the brand, like Lea T and Steven Thompson. What made Mariacarla Boscono stand out as the face of Dahlia Noir?
Mariacarla and I met 15 years ago. Sheís like a sister to me. Sheís distinguished, strong and delicate, subtly elegant, thatís what I love. She is extremely feminine but also exudes an androgynous grace, one of the strong aspects of the Givenchy appeal. I would have been able to choose any celebrity, but that would have made no sense.
