It’s a black tie affair
Taking the fashion world by storm, Kaia Gerber has kicked off her career into high gear over the past years. Now, marking a new chapter, Gerber is seen fronting Valentino’s Black Tie campaign — bringing new life and meaning to a classic symbol of elegance, and power. With her bold personality, effortless beauty and knowledge of fashion, the 22-year-old model looks beautiful in the timeless campaign shot by renowned photographer Steven Meisel, at the
Oheka Castle in New York.
Take a look at Kaia Gerber’s new campaign with Valentino:
In the campaign, Gerber is seen strutting the latest looks from Fall/Winter 2023. The Maison’s creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli built the collection around pieces drawn from every day where he embraced unexpected looks with a newfound sense of rebellion and confidence. Going unorthodox the campaign plays around with the notion of disobeying the rules and traditional standard of dressing with a dominating tie. The significance of a tie has been reappropriated in this campaign by elevating dresses, skirts and gowns. It is definitely a refreshing departure from the norm and a showcase that the power of individuality and self-expression is all the rage now.
The black tie, once a symbol of formality and masculine power, now represents a shift towards inclusivity and personal expression, allowing individuals to celebrate diversity as well as push boundaries. Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli broke the codes of the Black Tie, by emptying it of its meaning and giving it a new personal choice.
