Where there is Prada, there is Anok Yai. This much has been true since Anok made history opening the Prada Fall 2018 runway show nearly a year ago. Since then Anok’s figured in a number of advertising campaigns for the Italian luxury house and her latest for Spring / Summer 2019 is now her ninth. Nine times, nine times. Photographed by Willy Vanderperre, this campaign, which is comprised of layered images, draws inspiration from the world of cinema. “[The images] are immediately reminiscent of the dual personality of actor versus the role they play, of movie star versus movie character. But they are also expressive of the multiple personae inside all of us in the cinéma vérité of everyday life.” Heady stuff, but never lose sight of the fact that Anok is a natural at the role playing intensive discipline of high fashion modeling. Nine campaigns for Prada tell their own story, one in which Anok is the leading woman.
