Julia Stegner Sexes Up Mercedes-Benz
Super-hot German model Julia Stegner has just been chosen as the new face of Mercedes-Benz, giving the brand a much needed dose of sex appeal in a stagnating luxury car market. Stegner will make her first official appearance for the marque at Berlin Fashion Week later this month. Stegner just shot a new ad campaign (above) with photographer Michelangelo di Battista co-starring the brand new Mercedes-Benz CLS 350 CGI Grand Edition in outfits by French designer Anne Valerie Hash.
"Julia particularly represents the connection between German origin and international flair," Mercedes exec Anders Sundt Jensen tells Berlinista. "That's why in our key visual we have very consciously placed her together with the new CLS Grand Edition, which will be launched on the market in March 2009." Stegner, who hails from Munich, has appeared on the covers several fashion mags and runway shows including Victoria's Secret, as well as in ad campaigns for the likes of Chloé, Dolce & Gabbana, Escada, Guerlain, Dior and Hugo Boss.
