maybe you heard that italian designer gianfranco ferré* died. i recently visited his website. steel yourself and check it out:
for the spring/summer ad campaign, not only is GFF using a black (!) model, she's not the light-skinned, wilting flower you so often see. she's dark-skinned, with a strong jaw, a haughty, "wtf you looking at" royal expression, and you get the feeling she could - and would like to - kick your ass. she's accessorized by a sexy terrorist who clearly does her bidding. together they paint a seductively threatening picture that made me forget why i went to the site in the first place (just admiring the sunglasses, your majesty, may i be excused?)
*(gianfranco ferré is like, such a sexy name! it begs to be whispered in the dark on a yacht in the mediterranean... gianfranco? ferré!).
