Style can be a powerful tool for self-expression.

So states the vision of BCBG Max Azria’s latest collection, and no one is more fitting to serve as the face of that collection than Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima.

The 38-year-old brunette bombshell appeared in some 20 photos that were released by BCBG for the Fall/Winter 2019 campaign on Wednesday, in predominantly black, white and red shades that featured fierce looks, dark lips and a confident, powerful mood.

In many of the photos, Adriana is styled to look like one of the women in the iconic music videos for Robert Palmer’s songs Addicted To Love and Simply Irresistible in the later ’80s: sleek hair pulled back, a dark lip and a fierce, no-nonsense expression around the eyes.

The clothing follows suit, celebrating clean powerful lines, formal lapels, and a spareness of color: the line seems to consist almost exclusively of blacks and reds (with a touch of other colors).

In one of the most striking images, however, Lima has her hair down, wearing a black dress with an asymmetrical bust line that is in fact a daring combination of a lapel and sleeve of a blazer mixed with a sleeveless and strapless minidress.

The beauty looks straight at the camera, with silver hoop earrings and her luscious lips painted dark.

The fashion brand describes the collection as ‘a modern and romantic capsule of pieces that help every woman become their own muse.’

They continue, ‘For the past four seasons, BCBGMAXAZRIA has partnered with women leaders in creative fields to celebrate femininity and artistry, making the Brazilian model the perfect spokesmodel to embody what it means to “Be Your Own Muse.”‘ 

A boldly contrasting look has the model in a red crop top and high-waisted midi skirt, both in a very on-trend leopard print pattern. 

Simply irresistible: In one of the moodier shots, Lima is seen in a series of reflecting images, in which she wears a shirt dress in the style of a double-breasted pin stripe suit jacket

The ensemble is paired with a matching bold red coat with lapels, and black tights.  

In many of the photos, Lima poses with geometric sculptural objects that enhance the ’80s Deco feel.

Other looks are in keeping with the thematic structural notes of the collection, which is heavily influenced by formal wear: a shiny satiny trench coat dress and clutch, a white blouse with over-sized collar bow and poofy sleeves.

One softer look has a more ’70s feel, with Adriana wearing a sequined patterned wrap dress with a dark sash at the waist serving as a belt.
