Riccardo Tisci has once again found an unexpected model to pose in Givenchy's spring 2011 campaign, WWD reported on Monday. Meet albino model Stephen Thompson, who mugged for the camera alongside Daphne Groeneveld, French Vogue's 15-year-old cover girl.
According to WWD:
Tisci explained that he's long admired albino people, reflected in the pale flesh tones that are recurrent in his fashions. "They're very near my world," he enthused.
Tisci raised eyebrows last fall when he put transsexual model Lea T. in his adverts.
