The incomparable Dr. Maya Angelou is flexing her modeling chops this Fall for footwear giant Cole Haan.
The company tapped Ms. Angelou and other fellow creatives to be the muses for their ‘Born in 1928′ campaign, which features models all born in 1928.
The Cole Haan company was founded in the same year in Chicago and chose spokespeople who they feel embody the timelessness of the brand.
Angelou joins photographer Elliott Erwitt, astronaut Jim Lovell, and model China Machado (who is actually 84) in the classic black and white campaign.
The campaign will launch on September 3rd via Cole Haan’s website and chosen social media platforms. It will also be featured in major print publications in November 2013.
