“Dope” actress Zoe Kravitz was recently tapped to front jeweler Alexis Bittar’s Fall 2015 campaign. Read the company’s statement inside..
Lolawolf frontwoman Zoe Kravitz was selected by jewelry designer Alexis Bittar (above) to star in the company’s fall 2015 ad.
Zoe’s joins a long list of fashionable women (e.g. Joan Collins and Lauren Hutton) who’ve all modeled the designer’s signature Lucite bangles and high-end accessories. In a statement, Alexis explained the decision by saying,
“I have always admired Zoe’s strong and unique sense of self. I felt a connection and a kindred spirit in this girl, and knew that I had to work with her. Her inner strength and individuality are so apparent and makes the jewelry come alive.”
Meanwhile, Zoe expressed her excitement about the campaign on Instagram, sharing “Such an honor to be reppin for such a beautiful man — inside and out !”
And in the latest issue of WWD, Zoe talks about shooting with Alexis and reveals why she really digs his ads. “It was a really simple shoot. His ads are basically portraits, which is nice because in fashion there can be a lot going on and shoots can become very complicated. He lets the jewelry speak for itself.”
In the image atop (for the 2015 ad) Zoe rocks a poodle-shaped pin in Lucite-and-crystal pavé on rhodium with 14-karat gold accents attached to a gold collar necklace. The piece is from the company’s S&M and gothic-inspired new collection. Zoe said, “What he does, and what I’m attracted to, is to combine a punk rock energy with very classic pieces. You can really see two worlds colliding.”
In other news, Zoe will soon grace the silver screen in director Rick Famuyiwa’s ‘Dope’ (Starring Chanel Iman, A$AP Rocky & Shameik Moore). Last night, the film opened at the 19th annual American Black Film Festival (ABFF) in NYC.
DOPE arrives in theaters on June 19th.
