Jessica Simpson is that you? Overall, it's a decent picture for the campaign thus far.

Jessica Simpson wishes she looked as good as Karolina.
My only complaint about this is how it was shot. I'd prefer if the actual garment was better shown. Nonetheless though, Karolina's face with that bird in the air creates a truly stunning image.

This is like a poster for The Birds. She even looks a little like Tippi from that angle.

This is probably my favorite SS11 ad thus far. You can really see Alex's influence in it as well.

Beautiful and cinematic. And definitely not like any other fashion ads and it is what I like BV ads about.

I love how they always serve something new with the picture, the mood, and the photographer.

Agreed! Every season they make something different and every season Bottega Vaneta's ads become one of my favourites. This one is not exception, I love the mood and this bird in the sky adds something interesting for the picture.

My first reaction was that they should fully commit and put a big flock of birds in the picture, but on second though the anticipation / foreboding actually works quite well. BIG thumbs up for having a theme / look ( Karolina's facial expression, hair and make up), but not having the theme overwhelm the clothes / accessories.

I like that season after season Bottega goes for a photographer or artist who isn't completely overexposed within the world of fashion. Seriously, how many campaigns can we see from Mert & Marcus, Inez & Vinoodh, Terry Richardson, Mesiel, et al. Not to detract from the work of those individuals, but sometimes it can feel as though only a select group of photographers is allowed to create campaign imagery and after awhile there is a certain amount of redundancy. This feels different, even though it is very Alex - for those familiar with her style.
