Russian high-end department store Tsum is one lucky cat — it has scored Cindy Crawford for its latest ad campaign! The supermodel proves she's still got it and isn't afraid to flaunt it. Check her out in various seductive poses, holding red apples, clad in Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana, and Yves Saint Laurent. Despite the old-fashioned set, these ads were shot in LA by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. What do you think — does Cindy still have it?
The highly anticipated Megan Fox For Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans ads, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, are out. And it seems her boss, Mr. Giorgio Armani, approves. "Megan is young and sexy and has a lot of spirit. Both Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans are all about a youthful attitude, making her the perfect choice for the collections." The Emporio Armani Underwear shots display the hottie in matching lace and striped underwear sets. Megan in undies is definitely sexy, but after seeing Eva Mendes and Jamie Dornan's latest CK Jeans ads, these seem tame. As for her Armani Jeans ad, it's simple, breezy, with Megan in all-white on the beach. Do you approve?
I don't know what it is about sepia tones, but it certainly complements Miu Miu — these are some of my favorite Fall ads thus far. Shot by Mert and Marcus, the aesthetic is stark, but provocative. The clothes look plush, the accessories rich. The models aren't my favorite — newbies Hannah Holman, Ilda Lundqvist, and Mimmi Söderström; some of their faces are a bit lackluster, but this blond stunner works it. These images remind me what a cool younger sister Prada has . . . what about you?
Remember how Miuccia Prada chose to replace Kirsten Dunst with French songstress Vanessa Paradis for their Miu Miu Autumn/Winter 2008 campaign? I'm not so sure I'm excited anymore . . .
Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, the ad depicts Paradis posing somewhat awkwardly wearing a scuba-esque top. I love her makeup but I'm not too impressed with the boring bridge in the background and her lack of expression. This is one of many to come but so far I prefer Kirsten's kitschy Spring campaign to Vanessa's. Do you think Johnny's better half worked it for the camera?
As promised here is the new batch of Penelope and Monica Cruz's ads for their new collection for MNG Mango. Shot by Mert and Marcus, the women play with sexuality. In one shot they aim for sexy androgyny and in the other vivid candy apple flirtation. I think these look wonderfully all American; like from the pages of Vogue. Here's a fun game: Try to figure out which sister is which. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the sisterly resemblance is uncanny. What's more, these clothes are cute! They look classic, but fun, and aren't too trendy. The new 38-piece collection for Mango will hit stores mid-February.
