Spotted: Liya Kebede for Prabal Gurung First Print Campaign

Culled from WWD:
For his first print advertising campaign, Prabal Gurung called on lensman Dan Jackson to shoot Liya Kebede. The image features the Ethiopian Beauty standing strong with arms akimbo opposite a shot of a metallic rose. See the gorgeous image of Liya Kebede for Prabal Gurung’s first print campaign below.

More pictures are out for this campaign and I honestly thought the first picture was gorgeous. But the rest of the pictures are mmmmh, let’s just say that personally, it doesn’t motivate me to look at the new collection twice let alone purchase it. I think part of the problem is the styling, why make the gorgeous Ethiopian beauty look almost like a second-class citizen with these scarves on her head. If they were turbans, I think it would have made a difference. But hey, it’s my humble opinion. See the rest of the Liya Kebede’s ad campaign for Prabal Gurung.
