Miu Miu casts the latest group of bright young things for Spring 2014 ad campaign
Miu Miu focuses its ever-prophetic eye on a foursome of rising actresses this season, casting Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, Bella Heathcote and the most recent apple of fashion’s eye, Lupita Nyong’o, in the just-released Spring 2014 ads. Photographed by Inez and Vinoodh against saturated shades of blue, purple and the brand’s signature deep red, the shots reflect Miuccia Prada’s latest take on pretty-meets-perverse, with each actress dressed to the hilt in bejewelled corsets, wool knee-highs, sixties showgirl boots and swing coats. Whether coquettish (Fanning), lackadaisical (Heathcote), pensive (Olsen) or regal (Nyongo’o), each actress translates the Miu Miu woman as well as has come to be expected from their buzzy on-screen roles. Following a long line of ingénues-turned-megastars like Kirsten Dunst, Chloë Sevigny, Katie Holmes, Lindsay Lohan and most recently Blue is the Warmest Colour leads Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos, we daresay the future’s looking mighty bright.
