him & her

Jean-Paul Gaultier Fall/Winter 2009/10
Raquel Zimmermann / Photographers: Inez & Vinoodh

Inez & Vinoodh rack up one more F/W ad campaign, interpreting Gaultier’s dramatic 2009 collection and brand’s sense of sexual ambiguity to a tee. And who better to tackle the challenge of playing both female and male than Models.com #1 model Raquel Zimmermann? The black and white ads are extremely pared down, leaving the focus solely on the clothes and Raquel’s gender bending. Despite Raquel’s best efforts as a pretty convincing man (and I do mean that in the most complimentary way), I only like these ads, not love ’em. If not for the gender gimmick, these shots could look a little spare and catalogue-ish.
