Adam Driver’s Vogue Editorial and Gap Campaign

15 Aug

It’s been a good year for Adam Driver; he’s received an Emmy nomination for Girls, appeared in the critically acclaimed Frances Ha and Lincoln and he gets to play Connie Britton’s boyfriend in the forthcoming This is Where I Leave You. He’s also gracing the pages of the highly anticipated Vogue September issue in an Irish poet inspired shoot, appearing alongside model Daria Werbowy. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz in the Irish hills of Killarney and styled by Grace Coddington; this is an editorial that highlights the new season in a dramatic and fanciful manner.

Adam Driver and Daria VogueAfter two seasons of Girls seeing Driver shirtless is the standard (he does it so well) and while half of this editorial has this rugged half dressed approach (including one shot of him holding a sheep over his shoulders) he also gets to smolder while riding a donkey (fully clothed) and hang out in a tree.

He was such an easy character to dislike when the show first started and since then my opinion has changed countless times. One thing that is clear (particularly when you factor in his Frances Ha role) is that he has a charming quality and a face that is incredibly beguiling.

It’s not surprising then that he has been snapped up for another modelling gig, this time for Gap’s Back to Blue denim celebrating campaign.
