We're filing this one under Brilliant Fashion Anecdotes. According to model Gina Lapina, she was booked, alongside fellow Miu Miu 'faces' Lindsey Wixson, Siri Tollerød, and Daphne Groeneveld to front the label's A/W'10 campaign with legendary fashion photography team Mert Atlas and Marcus Pigott. So far, so normal fashion industry bizznizz.
The next part is not normal. The next part is likely a slightly bizarre cheese-induced dream sequence. Here's what happened: MADONNA strolls into the studio to say Hi to her BFFs Mert 'n' Marc, who are in the process of filming a behind-the-scenes video of the photoshoot. Madge, as you will recall, is a erm, extraordinary film director, and VOLUNTEERS TO FILM THE VIDEO HERSELF.
'We were supposed to shoot a video, so Madonna said she wanted to direct it' recalls Lapina, who says the photographers told the billionairess superstar that 'she could do it but they weren't going to pay her and she started laughing. She put on her iPod and taught us moves and we shot the video for two hours.'
Anyway, here is Madonna's video, and we have to say, we hope Madge's forthcoming Mrs Simpson film is half as cool as this...
