Robin Wright: I like Darel's individuality

Robin Wright says she wouldn't be a "good model" for most fashion brands.

The actress has been the face of French retailer Gerard Darel since 2010.

However, Robin is adamant that she wouldn't have signed a deal to represent just any label.

"I normally wouldn't do this sort of thing, but I really feel like the brand is about individuality," she told WWD. "It's not like, 'Here, wear this blazer and be this person.' I wouldn't be a good model for any designer's idea of what fashion is. This is about letting your own personality come through."

The star recently shot the spring/summer print campaign for the company. The images were shot by Peter Lindbergh. Robin enjoyed every second of working with the iconic photographer.

"I hadn't met Peter until I started working with Darel, but we absolutely fell in love with each other," she gushed.

"I could work with him all day, every day."

Advertising manager for the brand, David Lipman is thrilled with the relationship between Robin and Peter. He believes the blonde beauty gives 100 per cent in her work for Darel.

"There's such a high level of trust between them, which means Robin gives so much during the shoots," he explained.

The French company has recently appointed new president Marianne Romestain. She is eager to turn Darel into an international brand. She believes Robin is essential to helping them reach more markets.

"Marianne is pushing us further to connect with Robin emotionally," David added. "It's less about the product and more about Robin. There are very few brands that respect women and want to give them clothes to make them look good at every age, and that concept is so exportable."

The spring/summer campaign will be featured in March magazines including British Elle, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue and Spanish Vogue.
