I’m ad-dicted!

November 27, 2007

I can’t wait for next month’s US Vogue to hit the newsstands because by then, the latest spring/summer 08′ ads would have been out and we can discuss the hits & misses.
In fact, the full list of bookings has been out, here’s a preview of the modelling actions.

Clauda Schiffer for Chanel Cruise

I have been seeing a lot of Claudia Schiffer on the magazine pages lately and I’m loving her comeback! She looks really fresh and gorgeous for a 37 year-old with two kids. After Salvatore Ferragamo last season, she’s been booked for Chanel, Louis Vuitton and repeats for Ferragamo again.

Kate Moss for Donna Karan

Then why is Kate Moss not taking a break? Everytime she fronts an ad campaign, I keep thinking that ”Come on, give the new girls a chance!”. She is indeed in a dangerous position of being overrated because she’s been around for like 15 years but she’s still shooting at least three major campaigns each season? For SS08, she’s doing Roberto Cavalli, Donna Karan, Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent…
I like how Shalom Harlow and Linda Evangelista are managing their careers right now , appearing in rare high profile ads once in a while and they usually cause loads of hype when they do that!

                             Catherine Mcneil and Anja Rubik

Maybe chopping off her long blonde locks worked for her, Anja Rubik is officially the ad queen this season with Oscar de la Renta, Valentino, GAP, H&M, Neiman Marcus, Chanel Eyewear and Chloe fragrance all under her belt. Apparently, Agyness Deyn’s short crop doesn’t show much significance anymore.
Last season’s break out star Catherine McNeil continues her climb to model stardom with three major ad campaigns namely Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier and Hermes. She’s definitely not a one-hit-wonder.

    Agrees very much with you on Kate Moss. I’m very dissapointed Donna Karan has chosen her same goes for YSL??? She looks harsh to me besides that’s she’s overhyped.
    Claudia Schiffer on the other hand looks indeed fresh, stylish and charming and is therefore far more inpsirational.
    It’s great to see the good looking older models back. Great for us women. Fashion is a love for life and so its nice to look at women in great clothes, ads i.e.

    I agree with what sophie said. I mean it seems like kate moss is trying hard to get back where she started from the top. But Kate needs a break and then come back in rare appearences for the ads.

    have u heard the latest?

    Kirsten Dunst is apparently replacing the gorgeous Laetitia Casta for Miu Miu, Spring 2008.

    ah Miuccia, that was a bad move. i mean, Kirsten Dunst??!?

    as for Shalom Harlow… well she’s been doing quite a alot of runway recently, hasn’t she? not to mention the Chloe ads with Freja and Anja…

    and i think she’s starring solo for some recent Tiffany & Co ads, if i’m not mistaken!

    shall we swap links? 🙂

    Well, I was wondering why they lugged that deadweight Scarlett Johanssen in the Louis Vuitton ads, for 2 seasons! Kirsten would have been so much better, at least she`s attractive. Good for Miu Miu!
    I was really hoping to see Kori Richardson in the Balenciaga ads, since she was stunning in the show. If that Jennifer moron is really in it, I`ll… um.. not keep a single ad? How threatening…
