Every now and again, a Victoria’s Secret Angel (or other some such comparatively bodacious mannequin) snags a high fashion campaign. Although Gisele’s luxury work is never surprising, it did cause quite a stir when Adriana Lima fronted Givenchy or Miranda Kerr served as the face of Jil Sander. Candice Swanepoel already staged her high fashion coup back in February when she landed a solo spot on the cover of Italian Vogue and the accompanying Meisel-shot editorial. …But apparently that wasn’t enough, as the South African model is now the Fall 2011 face of Tom Ford, as shot by Mert & Marcus (who are shooting roughly every campaign this season). In the first few shots, she’s barely recognizable.
What do you think? And how does she stack up to Lara Stone (the face of the brand’s cosmetics)? Both beauties in the gallery ahead.
