Football Legend / Cultural Icon Megan Rapinoe Is The New Face Of Loewe

Actual goals.

Megan Rapinoe is on fire. Ever since helping to lead the US team to victory at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the football player has been on countless magazine covers, got engaged to her partner Sue Bird, and now she’s a legit model. Casual.

Earlier this week, adding another small achievement to her list, Loewe dropped a preview of their upcoming AW20 campaign, which stars Rapinoe shot by Steven Meisel. Actual goals.

About the imagery, Loewe said: “Rapinoe’s trademark pink hair is highlighted by the solidity of the cobalt blue background. Her eyes are grinning, the tongue peeks a boo between the teeth, mimicking the soccer player’s signature expression when she wins.”

Cool.

Along with the image, Rapinoe also gave us a little teaser of a series of short films the brand shot as part of the campaign.

“I am so thrilled about this partnership with Loewe and Jonathan Anderson,” she wrote. “Multiple worlds crashing together, creating something bigger, different, and more exciting than either could alone. To me, the goal of collaboration should not be to stand next to one another, but rather become something else, together.” 

Can’t wait for the full campaign.
