Tom Ford is planning to celebrate female beauty in his latest advertising campaign. The designer revealed his new fall/winter womenswear campaign, will showcase ‘the diversity of female beauty’ with rising stars such as Gigi Hadid, Ashleigh Good, Yaya DaCosta, and trans model Valentijn de Hingh.
As a fierce advocate of equal representation of LGBT models in the fashion industry, Ford selected the stunning Valentijn de Hingh, a transgender Dutch model who recently participated in Bruce Weber’s spring campaign for Barneys with a cast of 17 transgender people.
“The concept is individual style, which was the idea behind my first women’s show in New York. The campaign is focused on the personal, individual style of different types of women.”
Yaya DaCosta is best known for her stint on America’s Next Top Model as Season 3’s runner-up, and was recently cast as Whitney Houston in the upcoming Lifetime biopic, I Will Always Love You. She shines in Tom Ford’s new campaign, alongside others notable beauties.
The star-studded shot also features Ashleigh Good, who closed the Spring 2013 Chanel Haute Couture show as a lesbian bride in response to gay-marriage inequality in France.
