Can't stop laughing at people's comments on Balenciaga's SS18 campaign posts: "Kanye did it first", "Demna is copying Kanye West". Really? Yeezy's campaign images was released today as well. And the lookbook with Kim had nothing original about it.

like many of you said it has been done so many time but honestly i like it a lot. first campaign under demna that pleases my eyes . I wish the bodyguards were more into their "job" than trying to look good especially the one with Marjatta Nissinen

why is everybody talking about kanye (by the way what he did, no matter how laughable and eyeroll inducing i might find it, is way smarter and more relevant and timely than this)?
my first thought was 'Meisel did this for vogue italia how many years ago....?'

I'm not buying it...AT ALL...I think this is a complete miss and a mess.

I don't feel like I'm seeing "real" paparazzi pictures...it feels too staged and not realistic. The first Yeezy lookbook featuring the real Kim Kardashian (not Paris) looked like real paparazzi pics. Because the pics look candid, just Kim being spied on. The whole looks like a cheap amateur ANTM circa 2009 shooting haha.

Here Stella is over-acting, all the models do, with their hands, the obvious body-gards.

Never mind the models and the clothes, the security guards are the ones killing it in this campaign. This is their MOMENT

My eyes went to the security guards in all the pics. If they want to do redo this idea, it would have been so cool if they actually send out celebs in head to toe Balenciaga and got shot in 'real life' and buy the rights to publish as advertising images. I would stand up and applaud them.

As for comparing with Kanye, of course the paparazzi idea is not original, but the latest campaign having Paris Hilton dresses as Kim Kardashian is definitely genius and self aware.

The concept of paparazzi-like pictures looks fresh to me, even though similar campaigns were already shot. Don't like the resemblance of the bags to Chanel bags though...

At least Demna gets points for trying.

I actually love it.

Also, Kanye did not invent the paparazzi-inspired ad campaigns. It has been done over and over again, but IMO Balenciaga's are really good.

May I say that I don't understand some of you suggesting Demna should have used real celebrities. He is known for not dressing celebrities, he clearly does not want to be that kind of designer and doesn't even dress them for the red carpet apart from who, Salma Hayek on occasion?
It would make no sense whatsoever.

Are you here to debate or attack people? We all have different opinions and no one is "blind".

Also, no one here is saying Kanye "invented" paparazzi shots. It's just a coincidence that the Paris Hilton images were released at the same time as this Balenciaga campaign and some people prefer them over this. As simple as that.

I mean this kind of paparazzi pictures, more candid/ behind the glass/ the person not interacting with the photographer, look more like real paparazzi shots.

This campaign is way too staged and just ridiculous.

Ok, I know some would hate this idea, but I'd much rather have preferred Celine Dion in Balenciaga, shot by the paps with her cheesy 'queen of the world' smiles, and with swarms of people clamouring to see her up close. That would fit his ironic 'fashion, but not fashion' vibe that he's trying to go for. And it would not have attracted the eventual Kanye comparisons.

I also doubt he's actually anti-celebrity anyway....

Of course the first shoot of Alek is very good.
