Wow! If Balenciaga’s goal was to shock with their new ad campaign featuring Gisele Bündchen, they have succeeded! The sexy supermodel shows off a buzz cut in the new image, released on June 27! See it below!
Gisele Bündchen shows a whole new side of herself in the fall ad campaign for Balenciaga. The model looks hard and tough, sitting in a room of shattered mirrors, wearing thigh-high leather boots. But the biggest shock? Her shaved head!
Gisele Bundchen For Balenciaga — Shows Off Shaved Head In New Ad
Gisele walked in the Fall 2014 Balenciaga runway show back in February and will appear in ads this fall in magazines and online.
The campaign was shot by Steven Klein. Half of the campaign is in black and white, while the other half is in color.
Balenciaga artistic director Alexander Wang told Women’s Wear Daily about the campaign:
“This is how I see Gisele for Balenciaga; strong, powerful, mysterious and uncompromising. This season we worked with this idea of vanity, staged in a room filled with mirrors. But the cracked mirror is a continuing thread from the marble veins and creeping ivy leaves from seasons past.”
Her hair was styled by Anthony Turner. Makeup was done by Diane Kendal.
Did she really shave her head for the ad? Say it ain’t so, Gisele!
Gisele For Pantene — What About Her Hair?
Since Gisele is also an ambassador for Pantene hair care, we hope this is just a trick of a camera — we’re praying it’s photoshopped! We love her amazing, shiny hair!
Do you think Gisele really shaved her head? What do you think of the ad, HollywoodLifers?
