Anja Rubik and Clément Chabernaud will appear in Jimmy Choo's spring advertising campaign. Photographed by British lensman Craig McDean, Rubik and Chabernaud are pictured in a glamorous New York apartment. Rubik is wearing pointy-toe ankle-strap sandals in one shot and cork sandals with a bejeweled gold buckle in another one. Chabernaud is pictured wearing a shiny Sixties Mod loafer style. The campaign, styled by Sarah Richardson, will debut on the brand's website and social media on Friday. "Anja encapsulates the confident style and spirit of the Jimmy Choo woman in her urban habitat," said Sandra Choi, Choo's creative director. "She's playfully provocative and comfortable in her own skin captured by Craig McDean and in natural moments of cat and mouse with Clément."
