WWD.com has the exclusive photos of new Guess girl Amber Heard. As previously reported by WWD, Heard stars in the fall 2011 ad campaign shot by Ellen Von Unwerth. Evoking Western films from the Fifties and Sixties, the black and white images depict Heard as a saloon singer enraptured with a lone cowboy played by Silvu Tulu.

“It’s such an iconic brand and I get to join the ranks of Claudia Schiffer, Drew Barrymore and Laetitia Casta,” said Heard, who will also be seen this fall in the new NBC drama “The Playboy Club.” “And the jeans fit me perfectly.”

Von Unwerth had a relatively easy job photographing the 25-year-old actress. “She’s tall, with an incredible figure and those green eyes. She’s got movie star quality,” Von Unwerth said.

Paul Marciano, chief executive officer and creative director for Guess Inc., is pleased with his latest pick. “Amber embodies the essence of the true Guess girl with her natural beauty and classic all-American good looks.”
