It’s true that some of our best ideas come to us in the strangest of situations—for Jason Wu, it happened while he was sitting in the dentist chair. At a recent visit, he came up for an unofficial name for the class of models he tends to feature in his ad campaigns. It's the “Supermodel Supper Club,” because, well, the campaigns feature supermodels in posh New York City restaurants.
Since Spring 2013, Wu has showcased Stephanie Seymour at La Grenouille, Christy Turlington at Mr. Chow and Karen Elson at Indochine. So who, you might ask, is featured in this season’s campaign, and what is she eating? It’s the one and only Adriana Lima—and she’s pictured at the Four Seasons.
“Fall is all about a power woman,” Wu said to Style.com. “I chose the Four Seasons because all the powerest of power lunches happen there. I felt it was really glamorous.” And glamorous it is. Inez & Vinoodh certainly captured Lima in all her supermodel glory for Wu’s Fall 2014 campaign. Wu admitted that he took this photoshoot as an opportunity for dress up, and donned a few of hairstylist Shay Ashual’s wigs. Needless to say, we cannot wait to see just how the designer makes his signature campaign cameo this season. But at any rate, Lima will continue to be the star of this Jason Wu show: “Adriana is a new take on the supermodel—she’s from a different era,” he said. “At the end of the day, these ads are about the women and the sexiness, and I continue to choose women who inspire me.”
The model’s killer curves and captivating feline eyes—not to mention that incredible gown she’s wearing—totally draw us in, making us wish we were sitting at that very table with Wu and his team.
