MIU MIU AT THE MOVIES: Miu Miu is strengthening its ties with the cinema industry. The brand has tapped actress Stacy Martin to front its fall advertising campaign, hitting international publications this month.
Steven Meisel photographed Martin — who played the younger version of Charlotte Gainsbourg’s character Joe in Lars von Trier’s film “Nymphomaniac.” The shoot was on a bare set with stark lights, enhancing the contrasts among the different textures of the clothes worn by Martin, whose gestures and poses are reminiscent of a Warholian character.
