Valentino has just released the first images from their autumn winter 2013 campaign, with inspiration coming from Dutch art masters.
The campaign was shot by photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and is a mixture of model shots and Flemish-style still life images, all shot reminiscent of 17th Century artists Vermeer and Rembrandt.
Valentino’s Creative Director, Maria Grazia Chiuri spoke to WWD about how she saw the shots – “women represented like paintings, caught in the intimacy and magic of their gestures” with her co-creativedirector Pierpaolo Piccioli summarising it as “the magnificence of Flemish lights and 10 different characters of contemporary feminine grace and regality.”

Chart-topper Rita Ora debut modelling campaign for Madonna and her daughter’s label, Material Girl sees showcasing the capital’s most famous landmarks.
The 22-year-old was signed up as the face of Material Girl, which Madonna collaborates on with her 16-year-old daughter Lourdes in May. Taking over from fellow Brit Georgia May Jagger, she is rumoured to have been paid a £500,000 paycheck for fronting the label.
“What Material Girl means is just so much more than just a girl, it means confidence, it means belief and inspiration, and freedom to really express yourself,” said Rita.
Ora follows in the footsteps of Kelly Osbourne and Taylor Momsen, who have previously modelled for the teen-targeted, Eighties-centric label.

Malaika Firth’s first ever campaign is the starring role in Prada’s autumn/winter 2013 advertising campaign which makes her the first black model to star in a Prada advert since Naomi Campbell in 1994.
Firth said she was “completely ecstatic” when she found out she had secured the campaign, which also stars Christy Turlington.
“The shoot was great,” she told The Telegraph. “Unfortunately I didn’t get to speak to Christy as she was busy with hair and makeup but she looked beautiful and also looks like a really lovely person.”
Firth’s potential was first spotted by her very own mother, who took it upon herself to call Premier Models and tell the agency of her daughter’s model credentials after watching Channel 4 documentary The Model Agency in 2011.
