Our hearts were all a flutter when we first laid our eyes on the new Miu Miu campaign featuring actress and ultimate girl crush Elle Fanning, but apparently that wasn’t enough for Miu Miu as this morning three more portraits were revealed for their Spring Summer 2014 campaign featuring three more of Hollywood’s hottest rising stars.
Elle Fanning has given her older sister a run for her money over recent years; getting her first big break in Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere she then went on to work with J.J. Abrams for sci-fi blockbuster Super 8. 2014 see’s the release of highly anticipated Disney live-action Maleficent in which Fanning plays Princess Aurora alongside a terrifying Angelina Jolie as the infamous villain.
Also featuring in the campaign is Elizabeth Olsen, who in the past has always been known as the younger sister of Ashley and Mary Kate but after a breakout performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene has proved she wont be staying in the twins shadows for long, Bella Heathcote who starred in Dark Shadows alongside Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter and Lupita Nyong’o who got her big screen debut in Steve McQueens 12 Years a Slave which is already looking to cause waves at this years Academy Awards, not bad huh.
Shot in New York by Inez and Vinoodh the campaign features each actress in looks from Miu Mius Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Poised perfectly in sets as distinctive as the actresses, the shades of blue, red and violet compliment the prints and materials to create a truly striking campaign that flirts with sexual femininity, classic demure pieces with an edge.
Thick wool stockings are in rich tones of red and yellow and paired with ruby red Mary Janes or lace-up knee-highs. In one shot we see Bella looking perfectly demure in a good girl coat then the next Lupita works a bad girl bustier dripping with jewels, each effortlessly translating the new spirit of the Miu Miu woman.
