Charlotte Casiraghi  for Gucci mar12 ad 1.jpg

Earlier this week I was telling you about Princess Charlotte Casiraghi of Monaco and how she has become the next new face of Gucci. Well it didn't take long for the Internetz to dig up some photos from the campaign with the young royal posing with her favourite animal - the horse.

Photographed by Peter Lindbergh, these are the first set of images set to be released in a series by different photographers over the next two years. For this "Forever New" campaign, Charlotte models the fashion house's signature red and green stripes. Of course this isn't the first time that she has worked with Gucci, they have also teamed up to create uniforms for Charlotte's show-jumping team during the Global Champions Tour.

Gucci's creative director Frida Giannini said, "Over the last two years I have had the pleasure and privilege to get to know Charlotte through our shared passion for horses... I am delighted to celebrate Gucci's icons of heritage with someone who is so connected to the history and essence of this house. Charlotte brings the spirit of Gucci to life so elegantly."
