Prada Ten Women
Steven Meisel directed the short film, called Ten Women,
stars a full bouquet of top models. Here comes the spring.
The short film, called Ten Women, stars a full bouquet of models
including Eva Herzigova, Irene Hiemstra, Irina Kravchenko, Kirsten
Owen, Maartje Verhoef, Raquel Zimmermann, Sasha Pivovarova,
Saskia de Brauw, Sung Hee Kim, and Vanessa Axente. Each of the
women poses languidly for the camera while a voice-over describes
attributes of some of the flowers. “Tiger lily,” it says as Kravchenko
stares directly into the camera. “Handle with care.”
Steven Meisel directed the video, which is set to musician
Moondog’s “Stamping Ground.”
The song’s militant drum line ads a quickening sense of purpose
to a video that’s feminist, unsettling, and beautiful to look at all at once.
