Donatella Versace made no attempt to hide that models Edie Campbell and Anna Ewers had signed on to star in Versace’s mainline campaign for Spring 2017, posting a series of behind-the-scenes photos featuring the duo while on location in Kentucky. Replacing Karlie Kloss and Gigi Hadid but continuing to work with photographer Bruce Weber, Edie and Anna roam around a ranch and pose alongside male models and horses — a stark contrast from the Versace collection.
Members of our forums weren’t a fan of the concept. “So, clearly, this is not Versace. The two individual shots with Edie are take it or leave it for me — just meh. However, the one with Anna and Edie could not have been more stiff if they tried. Anna, especially, looks like she’s never modeled in her life. And her neck looks like she’s a football player,” MyNameIs critiqued at once.
