Maison Valentino’s latest campaign, #ValentinoEmpathy, is nothing short of creative genius. The Fall 2020 Campaign, which is the brainchild of Valentino’s Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli, features a superstar cast of 23 celebrity friends including Gwyneth Paltrow, Janet Mock, Laura Dern, Anwar Hadid and Christy Turlington just to name a few. Each subject was photographed (mostly by iPhone) by someone they were quarantining with, while donning looks from the Fall/Winter collection.
All of the Valentino subjects donated their fees (a total of 1 million euros) to the Lazzaro Spallanzani Hospital in Rome and its COVID-19 efforts. Piccioli recently stated that “#ValentinoEmpathy brings personality and intimacy to the forefront, through a series of portraits of people I love, shot by their loved ones.”
