Italian fashion house Miu Miu has a history of tapping emerging Hollywood talent to front their ad campaigns, see: Hailee Steinfeld’s Fall 2011 campaign.
So their Spring 2014 campaign, which features four of Hollywood’s brightest rising starlets— Elle Fanning, Lupita Nyong’o, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bella Heathcote— is par for the course for the designer label.
She might be the youngest starlet of the group, but Elle Fanning is the actress with the most extensive filmography, and she’s no stranger to fronting major ad campaigns.
Back when Hailee was representing Miu Miu, Elle was the face of the Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 campaign at the tender age of thirteen.
Two years later young Elle makes a grand return to form as a high fashion model landing another blue chip campaign.
If you don’t know this face, or this name, familiarize yourself. Now.
Lupita Nyong’o is the breakout star of this year’s Awards Season due to her heartbreaking portrayal of Patsy in director Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave.
Following her breakthrough performance (12 Years was Lupita’s first feature film.), Lupita has become the belle of the Awards Season ball, hitting it out of the style park one red carpet at a time, with a particularly stunning turn in a Miu Miu Spring 2014 dress.
If you’re a major fashion house presenting a fashion campaign comprised of emerging Hollywood ingenues, then it’s a no-brainer that Lupita Nyong’o makes the cut.
Once upon a time, Elizabeth Olsen was best known for being the youngest sister of power twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. After all she is the ‘Elizabeth’ in the duo’s Elizabeth & James clothing label.
But Elizabeth’s managed to achieve the near impossible, carve her own niche and craft her own star career that’s unrelated to The Brand that is Mary-Kate and Ashley.
Elizabeth Olsen has become a much buzzed about actress, and possibly even a rising Hollywood style star, so her inclusion in this years Miu Miu Spring campaign makes complete sense.
While all the girls in Miu Miu’s Spring campaign might not yet be household names Bella Heathcote is probably the least known.
The young actress hails from Australia where she’s best remembered for her role on Australian soap opera Neighbours.
Since making the move stateside, Bella nabbed a role in director Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows adaptation featuring Michelle Pfeiffer and Johnny Depp.
Bella’s poised to have her breakout moment with her upcoming role in an as yet untitled Marc Lawrence film alongside film greats Hugh Grant and Marisa Tomei, and her part in Miu Miu’s Spring campaign can’t help but get her there quicker.
