Marion Cotillard’s Shangai Surprise

Does anyone here know what a “Shangai Surprise” is anyway? (I’m aware that Google exists, but I’m feeling lazy.) Regardless, how gorgeous does Miss Cotillard look against the skyline of the city as Lady Blue, the third incarnation of her seriously epic Dior campaign? [Lady Dior] Keep reading »

Can You “Guess” Which Claudia Schiffer Ad Is New?

Those of us golden oldies who can remember Claudia Schiffer‘s Guess modeling days (and may or may not have had said ads plastered on our walls next to Kate Moss’s Calvin Klein tearouts back in the day) did a double take when we saw the supermodel’s new ad campaign for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, at right. Obviously, the more important thing here is that you should waste no time supporting the cause by shopping the collection — 30 percent of proceeds go to FTBC. But before you go, please take a moment to marvel at how a little lighting, a great photographer (Mario Testino), Photoshop, and designer genes can shave off a few decades. Wow. Keep reading »

What Do You Think Of This McQ Ad: Cute Or Creepy?

The Cut deems this new McQ ad one of the “best.” It appears to feature a young pregnant woman in leggings eating cereal out of a box. We’re not sure we like it. In fact, it’s a little disconcerting. Is it just us? [The Cut] Keep reading »

The French Connection Guy Wants You To Understand Him

As Leo pointed out, the new French Connection ad campaign is really something, by which we mean “makes no logical sense.” Well, surprise, surprise. The commercials are equally incomprehensible. Meet “The Man.” He is confused by elevators, refuses to shave, and goes nowhere in life without the accompaniment of a French voice-over. NB: He wears not slogans or sequins! Eff, en fakt, zis iz zee mahn, ah zink zee mahn neez tew brusha heez hairz. [ANIMAL] Keep reading »

Did Jimmy Choo Rip Off A Fashion Blogger For Its New Ad Campaign?

Did Jimmy Choo rip off fashion blogger and photographer Tommy Ton of Jak & Jil for its new 24:7 ad campaign? That’s what Ton appears to be suggesting in this recent tweet: “is it me or does the jimmy choo 24:7 campaign look a lot like…ahem…you know what i mean :S http://www.jimmychoo.com/page/home.” Ton rose to fame by way of his delightful shots of women on the street, often outside of fashion shows, many of which focus on their high heels. His style is distinctive: shoe-obsessed, stark street shots of women navigating the world on towering stilettos. These days, he sits front row at fashion shows, shoots fashion week in Paris for Style.com, and is working on a project with Louis Vuitton. As a regular reader of Jak & Jil, I certainly see the similarities. Check out the Jimmy Choo video — which even features a Ton-esque street photographer character — and Ton’s work side-by-side after the jump, then tell us what you think in the comments.
