Givenchy’s youngest model: Mariacarla Boscono’s 4-month-old daughter makes her modelling debut
Mariacarla Boscono’s four-month-old daughter Marialucas has made her modelling debut for Givenchy, becoming the fashion house’s youngest model.
In a black and white campaign shot bright-eyed Marialucas is seen tucked firmly under her mother’s arm, looking away from the camera.
Commenting on the shot Mariacarla Boscono, 32, told Style.com: “When I look at this photo, I feel blessed with all the magic that surrounds me – my loves, my affections.”
The image was captured by photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
Former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld styled the shoot.
Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci, who has known Mariacarla Boscono for more than 15 years, said he wanted to focus on family and “real people”.
“They are people I love and who love me, it’s about family – something that is difficult to find in today’s world, it’s about real people, only taking the best of their personalities, with no effort,” he explained.
Kate Moss, Francisco Peralta, artists Marina Abramovic and Jared Buckhiester and Spanish matador Jose Maria Manzanares also appear in the spring / summer 2013 campaign.
Italian-born Mariacarla Boscono sparked attention earlier this year when she posed nude with her eight-month baby bump for Love magazine.
Shortly after the image was released she gave birth.
Mariacarla Boscono told Style.com that the love she feels for her daughter is “so special and overwhelming that words would not be enough” to describe.
Marialucas is Mariacarla Boscono’s first child with her husband Andreas Patti.
As well as being Givenchy’s longtime muse, 5ft 10in Mariacarla Boscono has starred in dozens of campaigns for brands including Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana and Lanvin.
