The main girls swapped roles
When Lily opened Dolce & Gabbana and Natasha opened Gucci, I was guessing that they were going to be their main girls in the upcoming Fall 08′ ad campaign again… but that is not going to happen.
The Gucci cast now includes Lily Donaldson, Kasia Struss, Ksenia Kahnovich, Masha Novoselova and Abbey Lee Kershaw while Natasha Poly, Kasia Struss and Jessica Stam (maybe) will front Dolce & Gabbana.
I am really glad that Ksenia is finally getting something big but I am wondering how much ad space Lily is actually going to get, for the fact that she is the veteran and the main girl. And can you imagine five girls in one Gucci ad (when is the last time that happened?)… hope it is not going to look like Burberry’s.
And take note of Kasia, the model who topped the catwalk list for Spring/Summer 08′. Seems like the very major Dior campaign last season helped her a lot… and getting all these will only means that she is not a one-hit-wonder or just another runway filler. All she lacks now is a Vogue cover and more editorial works.
By the way, Isabeli Fontana is officially the campaign queen this season. So far she has nabbed Roberto Cavalli, Valentino, Versace, Belstaff… what a comeback.
