Can’t tell, right? This is my beef! Seriously, the above ad for spring/summer 2010, could be from 1989, 1997, 2001, 2008, 2009 … or any point in the last two decades! Here’s the Guess photo shoot formula: boobalicious model + acid-washed or sand-blasted denim that’s way too tight + fake tan + oiled-up skin + some soft porn poses. It’s the same every single time!

Sorry, Burger King! Your esteemed “women wearing bikinis shaped like hamburger buns taking a shower” ad is not the klassiest ad ever—that distinction goes to this 2008 commercial which is truly the most obnoxiously sexy commercial on the planet.
Need great online bargains on appliances? I totally get that from the scads of women in an airplane, ripping their bras off and skydiving topless! Makes perfect sense. [The Sun UK] Keep reading »
Ever since she arrived on American shores to host the now-defunct “It’s On With Alexa” on MTV, peeps have been speculating that model/TV presenter Alexa Chung has got some sort of eating disorder. The stylish Brit is mighty slender, but that could certainly be genetics not anorexia. Chung seemingly decided to poke a little fun at the rumors in this Bing.com ad, in which she seems utterly clueless about eating. Funny, offensive, or neither? [ONTD] Keep reading »
Georgia Jagger‘s what they’re calling “a real Versace girl.” (In Donatella’s words herself: “She’s smart, a strong personality, beautiful, full of energy … She’s perfect for this collection — a real Versace girl.”) Shot by Mario Testino, Georgia’s campaign for the label’s spring 2010 collection just came out, and the images prove that she’s moving in a more professional direction. The teen model has had a real mixed bag year, both inciting controversy with her topless Hudson Jeans ad and gaining recognition by being honored with the Model of the Year Award. With the unveiling of this Versace ad, you’d think Jagger would keep the momentum going, but things are actually slowing down—she’s taken leave of the business for a while to concentrate on school. (Be cool! Models stay in school. Besides, everyone else is quitting their jobs!)
Of course, whenever models announce they’re “quitting,” you know that’s really code for “I’ll be back in, like, five months.” So you can probably expect to see more of Georgia Jagger—just not right away. [Fashion Gone Rogue, Vogue UK]
