Givenchy revisited its "couple" campaign theme in its Spring-Summer 2020 ads by tapping two icons: actress Charlotte Rampling and designer Marc Jacobs.

WILL SMITH, 50
In his long and storied career in Hollywood it’s hard to believe Will Smith hasn’t starred in dozens of fashion campaign in his nearly three-decades in front of the camera. But at 50 years old, he finally nabbed his first fashion gig by teaming up with Moncler for the brand’s newest campaign: “Genius Is Born Crazy.”
And he’s a natural fit to help elevate the brand’s imaginative innovation. “Will Smith serves as a natural face for the Moncler campaign. As an actor, producer and musician, two-time Academy Award nominee and Grammy winner, Will brings an outsized imagination and dedication to creativity,” the press release states.
IRIS APFEL, 97
The fashion icon and businesswoman just landed her first-ever modeling contract at age 97, signing with IMG, which will represent her for modeling, appearances and endorsements!

FAYE DUNAWAY, 77
Gucci depicted the "lifestyles of the rich and famous" for its latest "Sylvie" handbag campaign, and tapped none other than Hollywood legend and Oscar winner Faye Dunaway for the job. She was photographed shopping, playing tennis, being chauffeured around and totally nailing that life of "luxurious leisure."
TIPPI HENDREN, 88
JANE SEYMOUR, 67
Jane posed for Playboy in a silky nightie and said that she felt "sexier now than I ever did when I was young."
MAYE MUSK, 69
The model says her career took off after she let her hair go gray - and that's definitely apparent with her new gig as a face of CoverGirl.
ISABELLA ROSSELLINI, 65
Sies Marjan tapped famous families and couples to front its Fall 2017 campaign, including legandary actress and model Isabella Rossellini who posed alongisde her photographer and model son, Roberto.
Once a supermodel, always a supermodel. While '60s legend Veruschka has taken a break from her high profile career as of late, her return for Acne Studio's Resort 2017 campaign has us wondering why we ever let her leave.
VANESSA REDGRAVE, 79
The legendary actress lends her considerable talents (and incredible posture) to Gucci's Cruise 2017 advertising campaign, wearing a sweater that pays tribute to her home country.
SUSAN SARANDON, 69
For his fall/winter advertising campaign, Marc Jacobs continued his trend of tapping muses who inspired him in different ways. Susan got credit for helping the designer get in touch with his creative side thanks to her role in Rocky Horror Picture Show.
SISSY SPACEK, 66
Marc Jacobs lauded Sissy for the "life she brings to all the characters she has portrayed" in this David Sims-shot portrait for the designer's fall/winter 2017 campaign.
COURTNEY LOVE, 52
And rocker Courtney got Jacobs' highest stamp of approval -- for being the "ultimate divine mess in a dress" and inspiring his grunge collection for Perry Ellis in 1992 -- thus he called on her for his fall/winter 2017 campaign for a similarly undone-chic look.
BETTE MIDLER, 70
VERONICA WEBB, 50
She puts the “super” in supermodel, showing off her ridiculously fit figure in the black-and-white ads for Sophie Theallet’s spring/summer campaign.
SUSAN SARANDON, 69
It only makes sense for the ageless beauty to front L'Oréal Paris's Age Perfect range, though she attributes her fabulous skin to a few other things as well: “sunblock, keep[ing] my face clean and moisturizer … and not smoking cigarettes!”
CHRISTIE BRINKLEY, 61
The veteran supermodel returns to her milieu – the pool – in saucy ads for Barneys New York. For a second there, I felt like Beyoncé,” she told the New York Times of the shoot, which was titled “Better Than Ever” (and featured fellow pros like Pat Cleveland.) I think I turned to the camera at one point and just said, Take that, bitches!’
The face of the ’60s is now the face – in her 60s! The super-mod-el reunited with hairstylist Daniel Galvin, who was behind her famous blonde cut when she was 16, for a spot for L’Oréal Professionel in the U.K.
JONI MITCHELL, 71
Hedi Slimane is known for using buzzworthy musician/models in his campaigns – and his most recent muse, iconic singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, was deeply cool in a piece from the designer’s “Folk” collection. (How cool? She didn’t have to leave her house for the shoot – they came to her.)
JOAN DIDION, 80
The legendary literary figure is well-known for her sunglasses collection and minimalist-chic style, which made her the perfect model for Phoebe Philo’s understated Céline campaign.
HELEN MIRREN, 69
Helen Mirren is still head-snappingly gorgeous, well into her seventh decade. L’Oréal Paris U.K. agrees – they tapped the star to demonstrate the effects of their Age Perfect line.
JANE FONDA, 77
Fitness guru. Actress. Grandma. And L’Oréal Paris spokeswoman. The star wears a lot of titles – and all of them well.
LAUREN HUTTON, 71
Hutton’s iconic ’70s style is so influential that J. Crew tapped her to model and curate a collection – and her iconic look is so indelible that she’s still getting booked for shoots like this one for Violet Grey.
TILDA SWINTON, 54
She’s one of Hollywood’s most famous chameleons, able to effortlessly disappear into any role, which explains why her face was so appealing to François Nars – he tapped her for a spring campaign.
JESSICA LANGE, 65
Marc Jacobs Beauty could have had its pick of any pretty young thing – but their choice of “Bright Old Thing” (the New York Times’s words, not ours!) Lange was a beautifully perfect fit.
CHARLOTTE RAMPLING, 68
The British actress was long a muse for Nars before he chose her to front his Audacious lipstick collection. “Charlotte’s ability to transform is unparalleled,” he told WWD.
