Yes, it's about that time! Spring 2009 advertising campaigns are casting, which means we're in the thickest model gossip we'll enjoy all season. And it's flowing fast and hard. The Imagist has heard Calvin Klein's men's campaign will cast multiple men while the women's campaign will star only one gal. Yesterday an anonymous tipster wrote:
For Calvin Women's they originally wanted Kate Moss to do it, she obviously refused to wear those clothes. So then they asked Christie Turlington, she also refused.
So they got Anna Selezneva to do it.......
Suvi Koponen stars in Calvin's fall campaign, but Anna seems like a good possibility for the spring ads. The 18-year-old Russian model walked the Calvin Klein runway show in New York as an exclusive — often a sign of a future campaign star.
As for other houses, the Imagist reports Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin will shoot Givenchy's campaign in New York and Tyson Beckford will probably star in Dsquared2's. And word on the Fashion Spot is Claudia Schiffer won't return for another season of Chanel. We can live with that — it's not like she has trouble paying the gas bill.
