I'm happy Birgit is finally working w/ Meisel! And Grace didnt even walk the show, if I remember correctly. Meisel is really a fan of hers.
Grace walked the show. I like the cast but Iím not crazy about it. I mean why is Irina Shayk there and not Anna and Rianne??

....because she is the daughter of a former fashion icon, because the fashion industry glorifies youth and nepotism, because the amount of followers nowadays determine how many jobs you'll book.

Honestly, Kaia Gerber is no different than Kendall and Gigi.

Wasn't Kaia the face of Versace when she was younger?

Meisel worked with Gianni and as far as i can remember, he also used his favorite. I don't know if Claudia was that much of Gianni favorite compared to the others.
He all loved them but remember that at that time Carlyne and Donatella influenced a lot of his choices. And Carlyne was doing Chanel & Versace at the same time...Both brands had the same favorites..

Yep, she did the kids' campaign by Mert & Marcus in 2012.

I have to disagree with you there. I get the feeling that Kaia has a lot more respect in the industry than the Hadids & Kendall.

I love Gisele's shot! She looks so regal. It's a stunning campaign, but I would like to see Binx too.

I don't know how many campaigns Claudia did with Versace but she certainly did some very memorable ones. She also walked lots of his shows.

Helena did 6 or 7 campaigns for Versace and I think walked almost every single show including Atelier from 1991 to 1996. She walked versus and was the face of Instante.

Cindy also did 4-5 campaigns...(one of them shot by Meisel) I don't think she walked that many show but some very significant ones...

Carla walked many shows but I don't think she had that many campaigns.

Anyway, all this is pointless ;-)))

Seeing the Supers shot so lovingly and powerfully by their BFF Meisel is a gorgeous result.

But as a campaign, the literal self-reference goes nowhere. When nostalgia is an exact copy, it becomes a parody.

Natalia was the face of Versace F/W 2008 campaign along with Isabeli Fontana.
