New York—Swarovski has tapped supermodel Bella Hadid to star in its latest advertising campaign.
Hadid wore a Burberry dress accented with crystals from the famed Austrian company at her recent Met Gala appearance, before confirming her newest ambassador role later in the week on Instagram.
The campaign showcases the 25-year-old sister to fellow supe Gigi Hadid in six different color schemes.
Swarovski said the range of moods depicted in the campaign showcase the casual versatility of crystals, in line with the current trend of donning vibrant jewelry with everyday attire.
In what Swarovski described as a “sporty” look (pictured at top of article), Hadid wears yellow and white crystal jewelry in the yellow-centric portraits from the “Lucent” line, as well as the “Matrix” earrings, “Harmonia,” “Millenia,” and “Ortyx” necklaces for a maximalist look.
The pink images represent campy, over-the-top femininity. With her hair in Y2K-style topknots, Hadid wears a mix of bubblegum and magenta pink jewels, including the “Lucent” ear cuffs, “Orbita” stud earring, and “Gema” necklaces.
The blue images mix aqua and classic blue shades in stacks of “Millennia” bracelets, plus the “Lucent” hoop earrings and ring.
Contrasting with these casual takes is the clear white crystal array, which sees the model in a more glamorous though no less layered look, featuring the “Harmonia” necklace and choker.
Rounding out the campaign images is a green color scheme and a metallic version featuring less chunky crystal jewelry and more costume versions of currently trending styles, like hoop earrings and chain bracelets with small pavé crystals.
Fashion photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shot the campaign.
Swarovski’s first creative director, Giovanna Engelbert, appointed in 2020, conceptualized it.
“Bella Hadid sums up the individualistic and transformative attitude of a new global generation. She is a multifaceted character who evades the boxes of rules and conformity,” Engelbert said.
“She goes from sporty to glamorous while remaining the same girl – the same Bella – with confidence and authority. In that sense, she conveys the values of Swarovski to perfection. Today, crystals are a dynamic part of our everyday wardrobe: a way of accentuating your individual style in a way that can be as casual as it can be elaborate. Bella is the poster girl for this state of mind.”
Hadid said, “Swarovski … really is such a timeless and iconic brand. I love the new collections and what the brand has been doing, especially these past two years under the creative vision of Giovanna, and I really see Swarovski as the contemporary jewelry brand of the future.”
In addition to Hadid’s Instagram post, Swarovski has been teasing its colorful campaign on social media with the hashtag #RevealYourFacets.
