Fall 2023 Ad Campaign

Review of Valentino Black Tie Fall 2023 Ad Campaign by Photographer Steven Meisel with model Kaia Gerber

Kaia Gerber smolders in a new Fall 2023 campaign for Valentino, in which she is captured by photographer Steven Meisel.

A go-to muse for the house, Gerber most recently teamed with Valentino when she opened the Fall 2023 couture show, wearing a now-icon pair of pants that looked to be typical blue jeans but were in fact made up of thousands of tiny, hand-applied beads.

The new campaign imagery heads from France to Long Island, New York, where Meisel captures the model in black and white as she poses among a stately interior. The simple elegance of the imagery pushes the design and styling’s unique blend of classic and confrontational, mixing tailoring and feminine motifs with punk-inspired angles and edges.

Aptly capturing Pierpaolo Piccioli and Valentino’s synthesis of classic and contemporary, the campaign is a focused and impactful statement of covetable house codes.
