Givenchy has announced New York Giants superstar Victor Cruz as the latest addition to its Fall/Winter 2015 campaign.
Cruz joins Donatella Versace as one of Riccardo Tisci's hand-selected faces of the campaign. The Givenchy creative director describes Cruz as "a perfect mix of charisma, power, elegance and beauty," according to GQ. "A gentleman with the looks of a bad boy." The Giants receiver appears in two ads so far. The first shows him donning all-over stripes while the next features Cruz in a suit adorned with oversized pins, including 17, his uniform number, and typical Givenchy symbolism, like a cross and star. It would be safe to assume there are still more images on the way, as Cruz models multiple outfits in the behind-the-scenes video below.
The same all-star cast that tended to Versace is credited here, too. Cruz's campaign was shot by Mert & Marcus and styled by former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief and founder of the esteemed CR Fashion Book, Carine Roitfeld.
This is a major addition to Cruz's resume as a legit fashion force. He has previously modeled for Gap, Kith, and Mr Porter. Cruz told the online retailer at the time, "My dream would be to collaborate with Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy."
