Ad campaigns of the season

Two ad campaigns caught my eye for Spring Summer 14: Rihanna for Balmain shot by Inez and Vinoodh, and neo soul prodige Erykah Badu for Givenchy shot by Mert and Marcus.  Olivier Rousteing and Riccardo Tisci, respectively creative directors for Balmain and Givenchy, are taking their brand to the next level by choosing two strong powerful female artists also known for their unique and highly influential sense of style.  We can only respect those bold choices which hopefully will encourage more diversity in the fashion landscape.
