Cillian Murphy and Anne Hathaway Front the Versace Icons Campaign

Versace has unveiled its latest Icons campaign, starring Oscar-winning actors Cillian Murphy and Anne Hathaway. In a mix of colorful and black-and-white images shot by legendary fashion photographers Mert & Marcus, the actors appear in standout silhouettes from the freshly minted collection, with styling from Jacob K. In a statement, Donatella Versace chose three words to describe the spectacle: “strong, direct, iconic.”

“For me, Anne and Cillian are two of the best actors of today,” the designer added. “Exceptionally talented and kind people I admire and respect, looking their best. Very Versace.”

Murphy, who worked with Donatella on the accompanying video advertisement’s soundtrack (which features the Irish band Fontaines D.C.’s “Boys In The Better Land”), sports a number of Versace essentials, including white tank tops, black coats, Medusa-buckled belts and Barocco-printed scarves.

On the campaign, he said, “Collaborating with Donatella — from sharing image references to selecting the music of Fountaines D.C. for the video — resulted in a campaign that reflects who I am. The collection of well-cut, empowering designs made from great fabrics suits me perfectly.”

Hathaway, who similarly wears powerful staples like leather corset dresses, gold-buttoned coats and flagship bags, added, “I have met so many Versace women who are powerful, emotionally available, ambitious, substantive, funny, fierce, loving, singular, sexy, smart, talented, gorgeous, much like Donatella.”

While the campaign marks Murphy’s first with Versace, Hathaway previously starred in the House’s Icons campaign last year. “I have observed that a Versace Woman is herself,” she said of her experience working with the brand. “I am so thrilled and honored to be considered a Versace Woman and am overjoyed to reunite with the Versace family for another Icons campaign.”
