2014 Elite Model look winner, Mayowa Nicholas has been on a roll since she won the competition 2 years ago. Since then, she’s walked for numerous brands that include Balmain, Loewe, Jacquemus, and Prada. Also, she’s starred in a number of campaigns such as United Colours of Benetton, Jeremy Scott, Dolce & Gabbana, and now Saint Laurent.
She’s the first Nigerian model to accomplish those feats.
Under the New creative direction of designer Anthony Vaccarello, the campaign photographs, shot in black and white by Collier Schorr, show fresh faced models (including Mayowa) wearing nothing – a metaphor for a new start after the brand’s former head designer, Hedi Slimane, departed last season.
Here are some of the campaign photographs.
