Nearly two years after Farida Khelfa stepped down from her role of brand ambassador for Schiaparelli, where has was the face of the brand for five years, the French-Algerian model returns to the catwalk to model Schiaparelli’s spring/summer 2020 Haute Couture collection, where BAZAAR was sat FROW.
Khelfa is pictured wearing a black dress with a diamond floral appilque on the collar, a matching boxy tote and cowgirl boots.
The 58-year-old touched down in Paris a few days ago, and was spotted hanging out with fellow models Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. “Paris Fashion Week is officially open,” she writes on her Instagram.
The trio also made an appearance on 18 Rue de la Verrerie, where a plaque honouring the late couturier Azzedine Alaïa has been displayed.
Khelfa was also spotted at the Dior Homme autumn/winter 2020 show earlier this week. The model posed for photos alongside Haider Ackermann.
Back in 2017, the French beauty quit her role as Schiaparelli brand ambassador to focus her attentions on her personal artistic projects, and her latest film. "I was honoured to be part of the rebirth of Schiaparelli's couture line, a new life and chapter to one of the most influential French couture houses," Khelfa said in a statement. She was brought on board as an ambassador in 2012 when the house relaunched its couture line and acted as a fervent cheerleader for the brand during that time.
