Whether strutting down a runway or looking fabulously out of place amongst grime and graffiti, Naomi Campbell can always be counted on to serve a dose of high fashion. The supermodel took to Instagram on Friday, posting a sneak peek of Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2019 accessories campaign set in a New York City subway. Wearing an emerald-green sequined gown and barely there stilettos, she managed to make her nearly seven million followers feel underdressed for their morning commutes. As for the star of the show? The ‘VRING’ bag in black leather.
Valentino also posted a couple of snapshots from the campaign photographed by Dutch duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin on its official account, explaining the choice of location. The Italian fashion label and English beauty have had a long and close relationship – who could forget the supermodel’s emotional return to the runway as she closed out the Valentino Spring 2019 Couture show in a jaw-dropping black gown?

The #VRING observed on @naomi. Public spaces work as areas of exchange and grounds for imagination. Here, classicism and modernity collide in the New York City subway for the #ValentinoPreFall19 accessories campaign starring Naomi Campbell carrying the VRING bag.
