Lanvin's "Real People" Models Make For One Heckuva Campaign Video

Lanvin was wildly celebrated for picking "regular people" for their fall '12 campaign, but when we got to see each of the wildly diverse models chat about, well, whatever, we were even more taken with the concept. With voiceovers talking about anything from bands and frozen blueberries to missing bicycles, each of the models tell their own stories while showing off Lanvin's fall collection.
Laden with peplum dresses, fur-lined coats, and other gorgeous Alber Elbaz-created wintry wear, each individual poses with stop-motion photography while they tell their stories. The effect is humanizing, charming, and why we love Lanvin. Our favorite? "Eh...if I could be, I'd like to be, eh, say like, eh, James Bond!" Just check it out and see what we're talking about.
