Move over Kendall and Gigi. The star of Gucci’s latest campaign is of a different generation. The fashion house unveiled beautiful photos of their Cruise 2017 collection starring none other than 79-year-old Vanessa Redgrave.
The campaign was shot in Redgrave’s native England, at Chatsworth House.
Redgrave was first revealed to be part of the campaign earlier this summer when she did a guest takeover of the brand’s Snapchat account during the shoot to give followers a behind-the-scenes look at the collection.
Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele said the line will be a “love letter to England,” so Redgrave seemed to be the perfect choice. The looks appear to be inspired by a fusion of England’s punk-rock era with more traditional florals, which Redgrave sports.
Redgrave joins the ranks of other older women who are making their mark in the fashion world, including Iris Apfel, who has modeled for Kate Spade, and Joni Mitchell, who appeared in a campaign for Saint Laurent.
Let’s hear it for the older ladies.
