>> In his continued exploration of masculine-feminine, Riccardo Tisci cast nine male and female models for the Fall 2010 Givenchy campaign, including his muse Mariacarla Boscono, Joan Smalls, Ming Xi, Catherine McNeil, Malgosia Bela (her hair dyed pink for the occasion), plus his Brazilian longtime personal assistant and former fit model, who also happens to be transgender, Lea T. Lea, formerly known as Leo, is now heading towards a new career as a veterinarian in Milan, but Tisci says of his choice: “She’s always been very feminine: superfragile, very aristocratic. She’s part of the family." The ads were shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott in a Paris studio.
