Tyra Banks, a force to be reckoned with in fashion and entertainment, adds another notch to her belt as the face of Karen Millen’s ICONS Volume 5 ad campaign. This capsule collection is a festival of fall trends designed to be the style anthem for women of all walks of life.
The 90s supermodel joins the likes of Elle MacPherson and Paulina Porizkova, who previously fronted the ICONS project. Picture this: Tyra Banks elegantly draped in pieces ranging from a chic belted trench coat to a timelessly appealing little black dress.
Tyra Banks for Karen Millen Icons 2023 Campaign
Add to that a midi-length dress accented with demure cap sleeves and a glittering maxi that embodies disco without needing a dance floor. The Karen Millen images were shot at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.
The talent behind the lens was photographer Laretta Houston, while Tyra donned the dual hat of muse and campaign creative director. Stepping back, you might recall Tyra’s stint in SKIMS advertisements. There, she stripped down and stood shoulder-to-shoulder with other modeling legends.
Tyra shared in a press release that being part of the ICONS series elevates her into a league of extraordinary women she’s humbled to consider colleagues. She added that the collection is a perfect blend of glamour and affordability, promising to transform everyday walkways into personal runways for women everywhere.
Karen Millen’s Brand Director, Natasha Hackett, expressed immense enthusiasm about the partnership. In a statement, she noted that Tyra’s unique blend of magnetic personality, natural beauty, and relentless perseverance makes her the quintessential ICON.
Hackett went on to emphasize that the campaign mirrors the self-confidence and ambition that are the hallmark of their customer base.
