STAY WITH SAM. Three Grammy Awards and a handful of best-dressed titles have cemented Sam Smith’s stature as one of the most talented and stylish singers
But now that Balenciaga has tapped him to be the new face of its fall/winter ’15/’16 campaign, Smith has officially become a fashion icon. “Sam Smith conveys a quiet elegance and subtle sensuality that are perfect for Balenciaga. He represents both sensitivity and power the dualities of the Balenciaga man,” Alexander Wang, the former creative director of the brand, explained. The campaign featured shots by photographer Josh Ollins of the suave-looking singer wearing a sharp coat Scan as well as a suit with a turtleneck.
