OSCAR TAKES TWO: After five seasons of spotlighting Karlie Kloss in his ad campaigns, Oscar de la Renta is featuring two other models in his fall campaign: Candice Swanepoel and Katryn Kruger, who were shot by Craig McDean and styled by Alex White.
To maximize the Swanepoel-Kruger combo, one ad features two different shots of the models arm-in-arm for a total of four different dresses. Those who know Swanepoel for her Victoria’s Secret angel status will find her considerably more covered up in the de la Renta ads. The South African model, who grew up on a dairy farm, couldn’t wait to show fans her shots with the striking Kruger, who also hails from South Africa — Swanepoel tweeted a photo from their shoot late Monday night.

Kloss hasn’t dropped out of sight. Aside from appearing in Elie Saab’s new campaign, she also landed the September cover of Japanese Vogue, and the former ballerina has reportedly danced her way through a fashion shoot for W magazine.
