Top talent and activist Cara Delevingne channels a 1993 Janet Jackson image for Rolling Stone image in French luxury house Balmain’s new Spring 2019 campaign, lensed by Berlin-based photographer Dan Beleiu. ‘Iconic,’ Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing said about Jackson's vintage image, which he shared on Instagram a day before his own 2019 spring campaign release.
Delevingne poses nude in images deliberately chosen by Rousteing to promote racial reconciliation. “The campaign shows the reunion of two skin tones, one black — or mixed race — and one white." Preaching the authenticity message, Rousteing saied:
“We’re going back to basics: I wanted something pure and transparent”.
Rousteing said Delevingne's look — including her signature thick eyebrows — was even more captivating stripped down and she didn't need to sport any of his clothing.
