And Gisele is McSteamy



The gloss, the tan, the 80's power figure, the smell of cash. It's everything Versace is, with Donatella around. Of course, she perhaps no longer has one, but wouldn't you love a peek into Ms Bundchen's portfolio?

While I dismissed the Versace SS08 Menswear Ads as a bit of a safebet, Gisele and Mario have caused me to do some serious digging, and well, I've eaten my fascinator.


Gisele, (who, as we all know is the World's highest paid Supermodel) really is at her best when she's looking sexy and a little greasy. And Mario, I'm sorry what I said about you, I take it back, even if I still think you should shoot less for The AA Twins (that's Alexandra Shulman and Anna Wintour).


Many of the Ad campaigns have gone back to basics, with Balenciaga, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs and Fendi all adopting a bright on white outlook and ditching some of the delightfully busy campaigns from last year. However, Lanvin at least (and don't forget the gorgeously upbeat Moschino Cheap and Chic ads) provide a little Spring joy in amongst the rest of the white backgrounds that shall be filling a third of our fashion glossies.

I have been looking forward to the new ad campaigns for quite some time, and am so excited to see them popping up in favorite magazines. I really like your analysis of 'bright on white.' The McDream Versace men's ads were disappointing as you say - these are much better...

jayne said...

ooo i actually love this one, fabulous colors

Secretista said...

The ads are gorgeous! The colors are gorgeous! Gisele is gorgeous! It's just 1 big freakin gorgeous-orgasim! Lol

i love the sculpture of gisele's body!!!!

Aisha said...

You're SO right about how they're going back to basics, but as simple as these pictures look, they're amazing. It's kind of new and refreshing to see pictures showing matchy outfits.

Heather said...

Thank you so much for the compliments on my page! I think Lily Tomlin is the greatest too.

I'm really into the more ornate ads like the Lanvin... I like something sumptuous to tease my eye (and wallet)...

la Belle et la Bête said...

I've never seen the other two Miu Miu ads.
are they any better?

Mash said...

beautiful ads :) I LOVE the blue one &hearts and gisele is so hot !!!!!

susie_bubble said...

There's something mighty appealing about those colours set against that background....

deexdeexdreamer said...

jewel tones alert! they do look very powerful, don't they? Sleek enough to appreciate,and sexy enough to envy- you just know by swimsuit season, nicole will be playing yummy mummy in the tangerine!

molly said...

i definitely agree with your comment (and yes she is the one i mentioned before)
she looks like a long lost stones girlfriend, but im glad we get her instead of the sixties!
she gives me hope
as does your excellent blog

atelier said...

Gisele is so perfect!! She looks amazing even when the half of her body does not appear in the pic!

Cate said...

i like those ads a lot, and i also love versace's SS08 collection, especially the colours, and from the colours especially the orange!

coco said...

I wish she was still face of YSL, that was the most amazing campagin in years I think, it was so moody and dark
Have you seen the newer Patrick Dempsey ads? They are a little better than the first ones but they're not that great

Miss Woo said...

I'm not normally a fan of Versace, but that baby blue dress is amazing. If only I have the body of Gisele to pull it off though!

"really is at her best when she's looking sexy and a little greasy."

hahah that's so true, i never thought of it that way, it seems sometimes like gisele can only do sexy. she looks great in the ads though the 80s are well and truly alive!

Teresa said...

That Gisele...put her in any italian fashion and she'll make it a thousand times more orgasmic...I wish I had that effect.

Juliet said...

Gisele is made for this kind of fashion, just few seasons back she wouldn't had anything to do. But now it seems like fashion is going back to the Tom Ford -like way.
And that is sexy, bright and glamourous.

I really don't like the gisele ads, mostly because they are so plain. Although plain can be wonderful, for these, the just look a little bit too plain.

coco said...

Twin power I would say MK!
When I saw the pictures of Kirsten I thought of you straight away
there are new miu miu ads up and i like them more than the first few that were about!

maya said...

i'm finding all the simpistic ads abit too basic and same-ish, i like some variety in my magazines.

A said...

damn gisele and her legs. and bum. and everything.
damn her.

Tinsley said...

holy legs! these are the few versace ads i have liked

the celebrity ones just didnt do it for me >:(

I really like the one in the green dress

Romeika said...

I'm starting to like these vibrant colours in accessories and shoes, it definitely cheer up any look! And Gisele looks gorgeous ^^

Pomegranate said...

Oh Giselle, please lend me your legs!

Wendy said...

Gisele has killer legs! Wow!
