Stuart Weitzman is known for super-sexy shoe campaigns. There was Kate Moss’ black unitard. Gisele’s Bündchen topless moment. (Correction: topless moments.) But the iconic footwear brand’s latest Spring 2016 ad is its sexiest yet thanks to a trio of naked models — Joan Smalls, Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge.
The industry’s biggest names lose all of their clothing for the black-and-white print spot shot by Mario Testino (the famed fashion photographer behind Moss and Bündchen’s campaigns). They are, however, wearing their “Nearly Nude” sandals, Weitzman’s new block-heel version of his celeb-loved “Nudist” sandal.
According to a release from the brand, the campaign embraces “a distinctively minimalist aesthetic while manifesting the intimate relationship between a woman and her shoes.” And the fact that the trio of models are close friends “made them the ideal casting choice for the campaign, as Stuart Weitzman has always been a common thread in bringing girlfriends together, from shoe shopping to shoe sharing to shoe closet envy.”
Great news: PeopleStyle obtained an exclusive video of Gigi talking about her love for the brand.
“What I love about Stuart Weitzman shoes is they don’t only look good, they’re also very comfortable and that’s very important to me,” Hadid shares in the exclusive BTS clip below.
The star adds that her Highland boots (reminder, they’re the unofficial boots of the Victoria’s Secret models) are so comfortable, in fact, that she can actually sprint in them. (despite that 3-plus inch heel)
“A few days ago I was at the airport, and I was wearing my Highland black boots and security was like really busy so once I got through security I had to run like 70 gates to catch my flight and I ran in my highlands and it didn’t kill my feet,” she shares. “So I think that’s a pretty good test of comfortable shoes.”
