Elisa Sednaoui will front the new Roberto Cavalli women’s fragrance campaign from February 2012, Coty Prestige announced today.
The campaign will be photographed by Steven Klein for print, and directed by Johan Renck for TV.
The Roma-born actress, niece of photographer Stephane Sednaoui and goddaughter of Christian Louboutin, recently appeared in Christopher Thompson’s Bus Palladium. The rising actress will appear in David Manuli’s Italian adaptation of The Legend of Kaspar Hauser with Vincent Gallo, and an adaptation of Frédéric Beigbeder’s L’amour dure trois ans.
Cavalli himself says in a release, ‘Elisa is self-conﬁdent and she has an amazing personality. She has got this animal side, she is enthusiastic, really sexy with a stunning body and hypnotic eyes. She is the woman every woman would like to be, so she is the real Cavalli woman.’
Coty Prestige’s Françoise Mariez says, ‘Elisa is the Cavalli woman. We couldn’t have made a better choice than her. She embodies all the values of Cavalli: glamour, elegance and sexiness. She deﬁnitely doesn’t go unnoticed.’
