Earlier today in Paris, Giorgio Armani unveiled his spring/summer 2016 campaign for his New Normal line, featuring Yasmin along with models Eva Herzigova, Stella Tennant, and Nadja Auermann and photographed by the iconic Peter Lindbergh.The four women, who range in age from 42 to 51, incarnate the classic spirit of Giorgio Armani, with windswept hair and minimal makeup. As Mr. Armani said in a press release, ‘For this campaign, I wanted four iconic women with strong personalities to show that feminine beauty is ageless. I chose Peter Lindbergh, with whom I have collaborated several times, because his photographs are timeless and are true to real life. I wanted to convey a sense of reality, of clothes that offer natural elegance and the normality of everyday life.’
This marks Yasmin’s first appearance in an Armani campaign, although she did walk in some of his fashion shows in the late 1980’s.
