Follow It Cant All Be Dior

Once You Go White...

One could argue that Givenchy head designer, Riccardo Tisci, isn't big on the California, Christie Brinkley look. He recently featured a transgender model in ads for the last few seasons and now he's placed Albino male model, Steven Thompson, front and center for Spring 2011

Ok, typical of male models, it's more like as a prop for the lady models, 
but you get the idea

Meanwhile Tisci tells Women's Wear Daily,

"he’s long admired albino people, reflected in the pale flesh tones that are recurrent in his fashions. 'They’re very near my world,' he enthused"

I'm not sure comparing a person's skin tone to fabric swatches is super P.C., but I think the sentiment's in the right place
