Adriana Lima is the face of BCBGMAXAZRIA’s fall/winter 2019 campaign. 

Following a 20-year stint working with Victoria’s Secret, the Brazilian model confirmed she was hanging up her Angel wings last November.

However, Adriana has continued to pursue her fashion career, and in addition to landing gigs for the likes of Chopard and Puma, is once again appearing in imagery for American label BCBGMAXAZRIA.

“Excited to announce that I’m the face of the new @bcbgmaxazria #BEYOUROWNMUSE campaign!” she wrote on her Instagram page. “I love that this campaign asks women to look within to find their inner strength and beauty. What does #BEYOUROWNMUSE mean to me? It means to be unforgettable, be confident, be powerful. So glad to be back with my #BCBGMAXAZRIA family!”  

For the photoshoot, Adriana was shot by photographer Zoey Grossman and styled by Rachael Wang. One image depicts the brunette beauty posing in a red leopard print top and skirt as well as a matching red coat, while another black-and-white snap sees her sport a sequin minidress with a satin belt tied around the waist. She also wears a black dress with white frill around the hem, a black coat, a white shirt with a dramatic collar, and a bronze metallic minidress.  

Commenting on the collaboration, Diane Bekhor, senior vice president of BCBG Group at Marquee Brands, insisted that the 38-year-old was the perfect fit for the brand.  

“Having Adriana as the face of this season’s campaign and bringing on such talented women as Rachael and Zoey further spreads our message of support for fearless, courageous women,” she said. “I have long followed Adriana’s career and we are thrilled to have her return for this campaign during our 30th anniversary.”  

BCBGMAXAZRIA’s fall/winter 2019 collection is now available in stores and online.

Julianne Moore has made a commitment to include sustainable jewellery in her red carpet looks.

The Still Alice actress credits her friendship with designer and Chopard artistic director Caroline Scheufele for turning her into a more conscious accessories buyer.

“When I met Caroline Scheufele a few years ago, she really struck me because she was a pioneer of sustainability in the jewellery world, something that people were not doing,” she told WWD. “She didn’t have to be doing it, but she used her leadership position to set an example.”

Moore can regularly be seen wearing diamonds and gold looks from the brand and recently visited London to celebrate the reopening of Chopard boutique, alongside Colin Firth and his wife Livia, Alexa Chung, and models Petra Nemcova and Arizona Muse.

The label has embarked on a “journey to sustainability” and now uses 100 per cent ethical, fair mined gold as of last summer.

The 58-year-old has tried to extend her devotion to environmentally friendly items off the red carpet as well.

“My husband and I have been trying to eliminate plastic in our lives, not buy any more plastics, reuse anything we have in our house,” the Oscar winner added. “We really think about what kind of space we are taking up and how to consume less, how to use what we have, wear it and return it. We are all realising we have limited amounts of space and resources and it is important to know how to share and use them responsibly.”
