FIELD TO FASHION. Athletes are often bolder and better dressers. Case in point is American football player Victor Cruz, who, with his muscular build and utter confidence, scores points both on and off the field—in sport and in fashion.
Even Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci called him “a perfect mix of charisma, power, elegance and beauty,” and picked the athlete as the face of the brand’s fall/winter campaign. Photographers Mert Atlas and Marcus Piggot were behind the lens, capturing Cruz donning a striped suit paired with a striped shirt and tie. He also sported a sweatshirt and flashed his toned abs in the accompanying video, quite literally being completely comfortable in his skin.
