No Sasha for Prada?
There are rumours swirling around that Linda Evangelista is replacing Sasha for the upcoming Prada Fall 08′ campaign. However, some sources simply say that Steven Meisel is just shooting her for a Vogue Italia cover/editorial… hope this is true.
But after so many seasons, I am afraid that Miuccia has finally decided to give Sasha the boot. Not many brands can use the same model over and over again for such a long time because it just doesn’t make sense, someday they might feel that she doesn’t suit the brand anymore. I got a feel that they are ready to let her go by including many newbies into their recent campaigns.
And for the one day that Sasha is going to lose her phenominal Prada gig, I wonder how much will it hurt her career. Nearly three years as THE FACE of Prada is historical, it’s a feat that only the Lindvalls and the Valettas have achieved in the past. But models who are under exclusive contracts like this don’t really get many other major campaign bookings outside of it. Think Natalia Vodianova + Calvin Klein for example. So the question is, will Sasha still be coveted by big brands post Prada?
Whatever that is going to happen, I will just keep my fingers crossed and if news comes out that Sasha will continue to front Prada’s campaign, it will totally make my day.
