Just checked out this Vogue picture gallery on the best shots from this season’s advertising campaign. Luxury brands, big names and great photographers – I really loved this selection.
The Gucci shot, by Mert & Marcus, is by far my favourite, I adore the colours – this is the kind of new season image I have in my head – the outfits are luscious, there is fur, there is drama, (there is a guy!!!), the composition is great, the light, the make up… all so wonderful! Yet, what I really love about this picture is that it oozes decadence.
Must be noted though, as much as I like Helena Bonham-Carter/think she is a good choice for Marc Jacobs/the shot is indeed imaginative (image 22), to me, it looks a bit odd, as if she is a cut up mermaid and even though I think this was the intention, it just makes me feel a bit funny. Having said that, the more I look at it, the more I like it, in a very weird way – Bonham Carter is definitely the right choice for such a quirky snap!
Which one is your favourite?
