H&M taps Katy Perry for holiday campaign
The news came out just a few days ago, that our favourite California girl will star in the Christmas campaign of the Swedish low-cost giant H&M, replacing the previous ad featuring the unexpected duo composed by Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga.
Katy Perry, who will also star in another major brand campaign – Moschino – could not contain her enthusiasm about the collaboration and posted a sneak peak of the shoot on her Instagram profile. The picture shows her wearing a soft black and white wool sweater, perfect to warm up the wintery days, and a festive red bow in her hair.
