Benicio Del Toro Poses for Prada, Kate Upton Shivers for 'Sports Illustrated', Kate Moss Friends Givenchy
Prada continues its penchant for casting iconic Hollywood actors in their ads. Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci asks friends to pose for the brand and model Kate Upton frightens the penguins for "SI's Swimsuit Edition"
Prada designer and owner Miuccia Prada seems to always have her pick of hot Hollywood actors to cast as models. Now the designer has chosen a brand new array of charismatic actors for her Prada fall/winter 2013 ad campaign.
The famous faces include iconic actors Benicio Del Toro and Harvey Keitel. But she has also chosen two faces, young actors Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who appears with Del Toro in Oliver Stone's Savages and Dane DeHaan, who will star in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Getting acclaimed film actors to appear in her ads and on her runways is par for the Prada course. Earlier this year, she selected an eclectic cast including Gary Oldman, Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe and Garrett Hedlund to star in her brand's autumn/winter 2012 men's ad campaign.
And at the Milan fall/winter collections in January, Oldman, Adrien Brody and Jamie Bell were among the Hollywood A-listers who walked in the Prada menswear show.
While we're on the subject of new models, designer Riccardo Tisci has just tapped a few of his friends for his Givenchy spring 2013 campaign.
The FORs include models Kate Moss, Mariacarla Boscono and Francisco Peralta, artists Marina Abramovic and Jared Buckhiester and bullfighter Jose Maria Manzanares.
Tisci told WWD: "They are people I love and who love me. It's about family — something that is difficult to find in today's world. It's about real people, only taking the best of their personalities, with no effort."
And lest we forget, swimsuit model and last year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover girl Kate Upton has just finished shooting a top-secret spread (with photos conveniently released to TMZ) for the next Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. In the Antarctic!
The poor girl had to shiver aboard a yacht wearing bikinis for a few seconds in temperatures of 35-below degrees before being wrapped up in furs to warm up.
