Givenchy Spring 2011 Ad, Featuring Albino Model Stephen Thompson - Thoughts?

White Out: It's An Albino Affair For Givenchy's Spring '11 Ad

Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci is known for his controversial ads — remember Fall's campaign with transgender model Lea T.? For Spring '11, the designer has hired albino model Stephen Thompson to star in a black-and-white portrait, seen left. "They're very near my world," he said of albino people. Whilst we're not quite sure what that means, we can certainly appreciate the arctic, almost ghostly beauty of this campaign. Last season's look was very bright, with reds and pinks, while this one is an adversely stark white-on-white affair. What do you make of Givenchy's latest offering? Do you love Tisci pushing the limits of 'accepted' beauty with his unusual model choices, or is it an obvious publicity stunt?
