Meet Harvey Nichols’ 100-Year-Old Star

HARVEY NICHOLS has created a very special campaign in celebration of Vogue‘s centenary issue – landing on newsstands on Thursday May 5 – featuring the first 100-year-old model to grace the magazine’s pages: Bo Gilbert.

Ms Gilbert was photographed by Phil Poynter for her very first campaign shoot, in which she wears bespoke Valentino glasses, a Dries Van Noten coat, a Victoria Beckham top, a Lanvin necklace and trousers by The Row.

“We devised a campaign that reflected the playful attitude Harvey Nichols is famous for, celebrating both the 100th Anniversary of British Vogue and also style in its entirety,” commented Shadi Halliwell, creative and marketing director at Harvey Nichols. “It was a privilege to work with Bo, she is a fabulous, independent lady who epitomises timeless style.”

The campaign will feature exclusively in the centenary issue, while an accompanying documentary film, directed by Kell Mitchell, chronicles Ms Gilbert’s journey to the pages of Vogue. “I love the different fashions,” she says in the film, as she reflects on changing style through the decades.
