jennifer connelly in balenciaga at the elle “women in hollywood” event
with all this talk of diversity in modelling, one can easily forget that celebrities are already dominating magazine covers. in recent seasons, models have shot back to the forefront in ad campaigns, but the pendulum may swing back to celebs for s/s 08.
rumours are swirling that three major celebs could be fronting campaigns for some of the biggest fashion houses. wwd says that balenciaga’s nicolas ghesquiere is in talks with jennifer connelly and people from marc jacobs’ camp have talked to victoria beckham. it’s also been reported that whitney houston met with donatella versace about appearing in the spring campaign.
i don’t know about you, but jennifer for balenciaga seems like a match made in heaven. she’s worn the line countless times before (including when she won her oscar), and she has a look that is high-fashion (did i just say that). marc campaigns usually have a bit of camp in them (except this season), so posh could work that with juergen teller at the helm. versace will be airbrushed to hell no matter what.
