Givenchy’s fall haute couture collection garnered a more intimate gathering this season with a special presentation consisting of ten looks with ten models. Riccardo Tisci, the label’s creative director, said of the change, “I want to make couture even more special than it is, and not just another catwalk show.” Gone are the black ensembles and dramatic makeup which are replaced with neutral shades and ornate details of lace and fringe. Topping off the look are sleek silhouettes and tailored jackets.

Appearing alongside Mariacarla Boscono, Malgosia Bela, Catherine McNeil, Simon Nessman, Jonathan Marquez and Paolo Rolden, Lea rounds out a wonderfully diverse cast that is sure to be remembered for quite the inspiring campaign.
