In an image released Tuesday from Balenciaga's Fall 2013 campaign — the first since Alexander Wang took over as the house's creative director — a black-clad Kristen McMenamy is seen peeking out of an all-black room, with her left hand gripping the doorknob.
Wang told WWD that the campaign, shot by Steven Klein, is meant to be a "very cinematic portrayal" of his Fall 2013 debut for the house. He added that there's "lots of emotion, in contrast to the austerity bestowed in the show."
Whether McMenamy's face will appear in other images from the campaign will have to wait until June, when the campaign begins appearing in magazines. A full look at the first shot, here in the gallery.
