German model Anna Luisa Ewers is one of the models starring in Prada’s Resort 2014 campaign, which was shot by Steven Meisel. The blonde beauty, who often gets compared to original German supermodel Claudia Schiffer, made her debut in the Fall 2013 runway season, walking for Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney, Giambattista Valli and Valentino. She continued in the same vein this season and snagged a runway semi-exclusive at Alexander Wang in New York and ended the season with a flawless showlist.
As always in the case of Prada campaigns, the model cast was the essential point of discussion on the tFS forums.
“Oh love this! Anna looks fantastic, she has this sensual allure that really works with the mood of the collection and the image captures that perfectly. Hope to see Malaika in this too,” expressed Marc10 his thoughts on the casting.
But anlabe32 disagreed. She posted, “Why her? She's really boring. Hoping for Julia Bergshoeff and Amanda Murphy. Can't say much about the shot yet, but it looks really crowded.”
Melancholybaby made no fuss about the model and simply remarked, “It looks quite good…especially the set design. Reminds me of Daria [Werbowy]'s Fall 2003 campaign.”
“For some reason I thought of [the Fall 2003 campaign] too. I'm really liking it. Hope to see more models in it, looks pretty promising so far,” stated mackos.
I agree with the observation that this image is reminiscent of the Fall 2003 campaign (see the iconic campaign here) and find this image to be unusually strong for a Resort campaign. It’s not unreasonable to assume more models have been cast for this campaign, so stay tuned for more images from the campaign and follow the discussion on the tFS forums.
