Controversy is all upon this Fall Winter 2010 Ad Campaign from Givenchy. And that’s surely not because of Mert and Marcus’ visually perfect (though a bit on the safe/boring side) imagery assembly. Oh, no! It’s the cast!
Bringing together both female and male high profile models would have been what everyone could do. Givenchy has pinched in the salt and the pepper with one particular model from the lineup: Lea T. Formerly known as Leo Cerezo, Lea T. is a transsexual, also happening to be Riccardo Tisci’s personal assistant. This was recorded as officially the first campaign to ever include this genre of model cast and what brought all the fame on Givenchy’s FW 2010 ads. Besides the impeccable aesthetics. What say you? Were we ready to step up after highlighting the black models issue and the plus-sized matter? (via)
