2011 is shaping up nicely for Amber Heard. The actress will take a break from filming the NBC pilot Plaboy and film work to shoot the new GUESS campaign with famed fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth.
“I’ve been a huge fan of Guess for a long time and to be the new face of the Fall 2011 campaign is very exciting,” Amber said in a released statement. “It was such an amazing experience to have been able to work with some of the most creative talents in the industry, such as Paul Marciano and Ellen Von Unwerth, who have collaborated on some of the most iconic campaigns in Guess history.”
Ellen and Amber will shoot the campaign next month in Los Angeles, and GUESS’ creative director Paul Marciano said he thinks Amber “embodies the essence of the true Guess girl with her natural beauty and classic all-American good looks.” Agreed!
Ellen’s previous work with GUESS includes their campaigns with Claudia Schiffer and Anna Nicole Smith.
GUESS certainly has a type! The fact that they are using out actress Amber Heard as their new it girl shows they have their finger on the pulse of the zeitgeist, just as they always have.
