Universal approval is not easy to achieve, unless, say we’re talking about potable water or breathable air. Even protecting the essential conditions for life on earth has its enemies, which is to say widespread acceptance these days is a rarity. Exceptions of course exist, perhaps few more prominent than the Versace Spring / Summer 2019 advertising campaign by Steven Meisel starring a glittering cast that includes João Knorr. This campaign embodies all that is right in fashion today from the styling to the sheer optics on the page. João for his part burnishes his credentials as a Versace model through and through landing his second campaign in as many seasons for the Italian luxury house.
