The soon to be printed Givenchy ads embrace the LGBTQ community in a refreshing way. Not only does the campaign feature (quite enigmatically so!) a lesbian couple- the adorable Ming Xi with Tisci darling Mariacarla Boscono, but Tisci brought in his former assistant and fit model, the stunning Lea T, a very lovely trans Brazilian. Indeed, the Givenchy campaigns lately have eschewed traditional gender roles in favor of a more modern sexuality. The usual sexpot Catherine McNeil looks positively gamine in a boyish blazer, and Ming Xi gives off a powerful masculine edge in a full on suit. Long-haired Willy Cartier dazzles with a feminine charm. Bravo to the Givenchy team for embracing both diversity and a updated sexuality. The shoot was styled by Vogue Paris editrix Carine Roitfeld and photographed by the dynamic Mert & Marcus.
