Transgender Model Hari Nef Named New Face Of Mansur Gavriel

The model, actress and activist is the new face of Mansur Gavriel.

The past year has been quite a good one for Hari Nef.

The 23-year-old model, actress and activist not only became the first transgender model to sign to IMG, but she also walked the runway for Gucci and H&Mandmade her acting debut in Amazon's "Transparent" series.

And now, Nef can add another impressive bullet point to her resume: being the face of cult brand, Mansur Gavriel.

Photographed by twins Tanya and Zhenya Posternak, Nef stars in the bright and colourful campaign shoot while modelling the latest styles from Mansur Gavriel's spring 2016 collection, including a bright red bucket bag and a tan satchel.

"We think Hari is very beautiful, and were excited to shoot her," said Mansur Gavriel designers Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel in a statement. "She is real and has great energy."

This marks the first time the creators of the constantly sold-out bucket bag have enlisted a high-profile model to rep their brand, according to Fashionista. In the past, Mansur Gavriel has used lesser name models to promote their product, or simply just photographed the product alone.
