U.S. fashion brand Thom Browne has chosen French-Vietnamese artist Anh Duong, 60, as one its main models for its fall wardrobe collection.

The painter, actress and model joins Emmy nominee David Habour, who acted in Netflix's science fiction drama ‘Stranger Things’ and Marvel's superhero movie ‘Black Widow.’

The idea behind the images is to tell the story of a couple, wearing suit coats and knee-length skirts, who has been together through everything. They are shown casually interacting in a domestic setting.

Anh Duong was born in 1960 in Bordeaux, France, to a Vietnamese father and Spanish mother.

She studied at the Franchetti Academy of Classical Dance and Tessa Beaumont.

While working as a ballet dancer in Paris, she was discovered by photographer David Seidner, who saw her modeling potential and introduced her to big names in the fashion industry.

She quickly became famous for advertising campaigns for fashion giants like Yves Saint Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana and Christian Lacroix. She has also appeared for Dior, Donna Karan and Moschino and in magazines like Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Elle.

She has also acted in films like ‘I Shot Andy Warhol’, ‘High Art’, ‘Love Me’, and ‘The Only Living Boy in New York’.
