Chrissy Teigen creates one sexy new video campaign

Chrissy Teigen was chosen as the new face of XOXO, taking the center stage in the brand’s national ad campaign appearing in print, digital, OOH and in-store starting this August. The ad campaign features still images as well as a the brand video developed by creative agency Work:Play Creative and photographed by Cathrine Westergaard at Milk Studios in our very own NYC.
 
The video goes behind the scenes of the Fall campaign shoot, where Chrissy’s famous spunk and persona truly shine. The video’s soundtrack will be set to the song “Melt” by Polish synthpop band Kamp! Since releasing their first international single in 2011, Kamp!’s popularity has quickly spread to international fame, playing at global events such as SXSW, Great Escape and Exit Festival. The band describes their music as “warm, layered production, hit flavored melodies, hazy melancholic vocals and balearic vibe.” – credit: Facebook.com
 
“I’ve been a longtime fan of XOXO, so when they approached me to be the face of their Fall campaign it seemed like a natural fit,” Chrissy explained on-set.
