Girbaud's Last Supper

The poster, by French fashion house Marithé and François Girbaud for MFG Spring-Summer 2005 campaign, is a version of Leonardo da Vinci's work with an almost all-female cast (models: Julia Polascek, Elle M @ Marilyn, Anais Droeven, Elena Isakova, Sarah Deanna, unknown guy, Ruslana Korshunova, Natallia Hrabianets, Marina Skopkareva, Kasia Kniola, Ana Marie Burk, Julie Nikolyshyn, Irina Lyshova).

The poster has appeared on billboards and in magazines in New York and Paris for weeks, but in Milan, where Leonardo da Vinci’s original fresco and religious sensitivities carry more political weight, it was banned.

The model Elle is actually Elle Muliarchyk. She is a guerrilla model and now she is creating a series of images that involve "seducing" the church. Hundreds of churches all over the world!
