I see what you mean. But with 90's I meant to say it looks like it could be a VI cover shot from that decade. It's more in line with his work from that era, than from the 00's.

What a stunning ad. I love Meisel, Charlotte and Balenciaga, so I kinda knew I'd like this, but wow...

As other people have said it's great to see Meisel doing simpler, fresher stuff than what he usually likes these days - no crazy make-up or settings, just pure (but it's Charlotte, so also unusual) beauty

I think it's a beautiful campaign. It feels very natural and clean.

i love the nature morte (stilleven, still-live ?) but as i'm more than fed up with Charlotte ... i hate the rest !

i think the nature morte alone would be much better !!!

i would like to smell this.

^it's still life, but nature morte would be understood as well.

I kinda see your point, but I like Charlotte so much I wouldn't want her ad to not exist. The two images would actually work very well as separate campaigns almost - they don't gel together as one perfectly though...

Eh, I have seen better photography on Flickr.
Though I do appreciate them not doing the norm of fragrance advertising.

I would have never guessed this was by Steven Meisel.
