Seeing Double: Balenciaga 2013 Vs Versace 1993
Right: the latest Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2013 campaign by Steven Meisel and left: the Versace 1993 campaign also by Steven Meisel. Maybe this is INTENTIONAL but the uncanny resemblance just made me yelped “OMG” out loud. The legendary photographer is known to re-use his old favorite spots for photoshoots and this is happening about 20 years after the Versace images, so who knows, this just might be on purpose. Plus if people notice it becomes a talking point. On another note, the models in the Balenciaga campaign are Kremi Otashliyska, Kristin Kragh Liljegren (who opened the Spring/Summer 2013 show) & Sam Rollinson. The models in the vintage Versace ad are of course the supers – Linda Evagelista and unknown (can anyone identify? Christy?) and Kristen McMenamy. Freaky!
