The Kate Middleton-approved brand is getting a dose of Banks's signature glam.
After taking some time away from the world of fashion and modeling — though never straying too far from the spotlight — Tyra Banks is back as the newest face of Karen Millen's ICONS Series, joining past supers like Helena Christensen, Paulina Porizkova, Elizabeth Hurley, and Elle Macpherson. Like the huge names that came before her, Banks is lending her style to Millen's beloved staples, like wear-everywhere coats and dresses. The brand is a favorite of a certain Princess of Wales, so giving that buttoned-up style a dash of smizing spice is where Banks comes in.
In the campaign images, Banks models a polished trench, shimmering ultra-glam eveningwear, and a twist on the white button-up, a staple that the Millen label built its reputation on when it started out in the '80s. Of course, Tyra's signature confidence (and big hair) comes through in the shots, too, reminding fans of exactly why Karen Millen enlisted her and how she ruled the runways. In addition to modeling the pieces, Tyra acted as creative director for her shoot — something that'll remind viewers of her time at the helm of America's Next Top Model.
"I am thrilled to be part of the Karen Millen ICONS Series and feel honored to be featured alongside some of the most iconic supermodels in history. It humbles me to call them peers. People are going to channel their inner catwalk in these dynamic pieces as they power-strut down the runways of their world. The collection exudes glam meets luxury, and I love that the price point makes them affordable for everybody everywhere,” Banks said in a statement from the brand. The pieces will range from $136 to $1,152.
“We are so thrilled to work with Tyra Banks, her radiant charisma, natural beauty, and steadfast diligence make her an indisputable ICON. With female empowerment at the heart of the brand, this latest campaign promises to embody the core values of our customers,” Natasha Hackett, Karen Millen's brand director, added.
