The first image of Alexander Wang's Fall 2013 campaign, starring Polish model Malgosia Bela, has hit the web. The gritty Steven Klein-shot image is the perfect accompaniment to the tough-girl collection--though, we do kind of wish those fur boxing gloves were featured.
But even better than the ad is the behind-the-scenes video that goes along with it.
Each season, Wang picks a model from the lineup to be a part of his "Confessional" series. Shot as though the model is actually at confessional (you know, that Catholic rite involving a priest behind a screen?), the model shares her story and talks about the experience of modeling for Wang. Past Confessionals have starred Liberty Ross and Shalom Harlow--so Bela is in good company.
Follow Bela around as she gets ready for Wang's Fall 2013 show (and all that snow, as pretty as it is, gives us serious Nemo flashbacks) and hear how she became a model--would you believe the only thing she knew about fashion growing up was George Michael's "Freedom '90" music video? Not a bad start...
