Amber Valetta models for M&S
I've never really understood Per Una. All those ruffles and frills. Far too chintzy for my liking. But hold on a minute, what's going on? Amber Valetta is modelling in the latest M&S campaign - and a pared-down Per Una is being pushed as the go-to label for grown-ups. Modern and slick and not a tiered gypsy skirt in sight. The 38-year-old American is one of my favourite models, ever. She's gorgeous. Who doesn't remember those nineties Gucci ads, Tom Ford's sumptuous mix of velvet disco pants and slinky satin shirts? The Vogue covers? The gorgeous fashion shoots in Harper's Bazaar? Swoon. I think I love her.
Oh and I'm still trying to think of a phrase other than 'older models' to describe my regular feature on models who aren't teenagers. Any ideas?
