Here is part three of my Fall 2014 advertising campaign critiques. Read part one and part two.
Kenzo featuring Guinevere Van Seemus shot by Pierpaolo Ferrari. This whole series is amazing, I love the bright colours and surreal shots.
Dior shot by Willy Vanderperre. These girls look awesome.
Salvatore Ferragamo shot by Mert and Marcus. I like that they’ve tried something dark and dramatic.
Jason Wu featuring Adriana Lima shot by Inez and Vinoodh. This is perfect for a brand whom I consider to be a young version of Oscar de la Renta.
Céline featuring Daria Werbowy shot by Juergen Teller. I love Teller’s work and he does great stuff for Céline.
Michael Kors featuring Karmen Pedaru shot by Mario Testino. I think I love these ads so much because a small part of me wants her life.
Prabal Gurung featuring Rosie Huntington-Whiteley shot by Daniel Jackson. This is magical.
Sonia Rykiel featuring Gisele shot by Juergen Teller. Firstly, I like that Sonia Rykiel is doing something very new to them, and secondly, I like that Gisele looks amazing without makeup.
Versace featuring Stella Tennant and Anna Ewers shot by Mert and Marcus. This reminds me of Guy Bourdin and that is a very good thing.
Balenciaga featuring Gisele shot by Steven Klein. It is hard to make Gisele look bad but someone has succeeded.
Donna Karan featuirng Karlie Kloss shot by Steven Sebring. This is way too greasy for Donna Karan, and I don’t think this brand should be about muscly necks.
Loewe featuring Maggie Rizer shot by Steven Meisel. Shouldn’t it read “shot by some random guy’s iPhone and then laid out on PowerPoint”? Is this a joke?
Marc Jacobs featuring Julia Nobis and Maggie Rizer shot by David Sims. The only thing that isn’t ugly and/or weird here is the mint green backdrop.
Rag & Bone featuring Winona Ryder shot by Glen Luchford. Notice how this brand always has to use celebrities or use some weird gimmick in their ad campaigns to make up for the fact that their clothes are so boring?
Stuart Weitzman featuring Gisele shot by Mario Testino. They should ditch the expensive model and photographer and spend the money on something else, something that might actually make their company look good.
