High fashion seems to be fast running out of options - Daria W appears to be mothballed, the usual "top ten" fare is going nowhere and Gemmanoids are already oversold. What's next?
The new CK Obsession Night for men ads are hilarious - I dunno which version runs in the Americas, but in Europe, I saw a naked Gemma W emerging from the water as a kind of "clueless creature from the dark lagoon" - while a totally astounded dude (it's a men's fragrance after all) watches in amazement...
The original ad featured one of the most unflattering pictures of Kate Moss ever shot, I guess they continue in the same tradition...I bet Natalia V refused to do this...
I was browsing French Elle the other day - a few pages after a grotesquely retouched but glam Daria W in the Lancome ad, the same Daria, without too much post-processing and sporting a trendy "hip London houswife" look, shows up hawking the kooky Prada perfume...
Tells you how unprofessional fashion/cosmetics people have become - that's why cosmetics executives insisted in exclusive contracts for their top faces in the past...
What else? Stella T is back...I guess to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of her 1996 appearance as the Chanel girl. She was replaced in 1997 by Karen Elson, described by Karl Lagerfeld at the time as resembling a "mutant alien"...

Funny, I though exactly the same when I recognized those two ads in Vogue.

Heh. Gemmanoids. That's harsh ;-)
