When you're a designer of a certain stature you don't have to choose between quality and quantity when it comes to stars for your advertising campaign. In fact, the thing to do at the moment is stick as many famous and buzzworthy faces in your promo materials as possible. Calvin Klein's Fall campaign features an astounding 29 separate faces ranging from icon Kate Moss to a Spanish rapper named Yung Beef. Marc Jacob's menagerie of campaign stars includes everyone from Missy Elliot to Sissy Spacek this season.
Not to be outdone, Alexander Wang unveiled the 23 different faces who will make up his own Fall campaign on the @WangSquad Instagram today. It's a list chock full of models of the moment and Wang muses (Binx Walton, Katie Moore), people who require special characters to properly spell their name (Zoë Kravitz, MØ, A$AP Ferg), all types of musicians (From up-and-coming rapper Vince Staples to EDM kingpin Skrillex), and the world's most gossiped about couple (Kylie Jenner and Tyga). Clearly, Wang has got quite a Rolodex to flex.
Some are hangovers from the Spring/Summer edition of the #WangSquad. Others are new to the circle.
Casting a wide net seems to work for designers. In a world where any semblance of a monoculture is disappearing, filling your campaign with a range of celebs that span from tabloid fixtures to niche superstars ensures you'll connect with as wide a range of people on here.
Which means just about everyone who would wear Wang is surely familiar with at least someone on this list, but that also means many might be not so notable. Here's your quick guide to all 23 faces.
