Jason Wu: 'Stephanie Seymour's Sex Appeal Is The Perfect Muse' For Spring 2013

10 January 2013 by

For proof that you really can get better with age, look no further than Jason Wu’s latest campaign. Okay, so it helps if you're packed with supermodel genes, but PHWOAR! would you look at Stephanie Seymour striking a pose for the designer's Spring Summer 2013 ad? It seems that the 44-year-old model, who posed for everyone from Victoria's Secret to Sports Illustrated in the late 1980s, hasn't aged a day.

Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in legendary eatery La Grenouille, Lady Seymour looks super-foxy in a sheer blouse with lace trousers. Her leggy legs and killer cheekbones are the perfect showcase for Wu's lace-and-leather collection while her smouldering maternity certainly fits the dominatrix bill.

'I wanted to cast a strong woman with definite sex appeal for my spring collection which was partly inspired by Helmut Newton’s provocative photographs,' Wu tells WWD. 'Stephanie came to mind as the perfect muse for this collection and the fact that she has worked with Newton just made perfect sense.' Meanwhile, Seymour is a huge fan of the US designer. 'He looks like a 20-year-old FIT student, but has the skill of a great couturier of the past,' she says.

And it's not just Stephanie who's bringing her supermodel magic back to fash-land. There's no sign of Kate Moss slowing down as she continues to rack up an impressive amount of campaign appearances, from posing amongst scantily-clad men for Versace to modelling a flounce-trimmed gown for Givenchy. Meanwhile, Claudia Schiffer continues to do her thang for Guess and this time last year, we saw Kristen McMenamy bag a starring role in Just Cavalli's Spring 2012 campaign. Yep, there's nothing quite like an old school model moment.
