GORGEOUS. Perfectly minimal. And I'm usually not a Lara fan.

It's kind of a rhetorical question though, I assume it must be worth it given the recurrence of such... enthusiastic responses.

Otherwise I can understand why they'd want to stick with the same formula as last season, it's showstopping, compliments and showcases well the clothes, but it didn't make me let out a gasp of awe or whatever. It just fulfills its duty as an ad, that's about it.
Ha! You just read my mind some people like to take it to the extreme when it comes to Lara and become blinded just by knowing it is Lara. Even though I do consider Lara a good model, I definitely don't think every single work deserves those compliments.

The ads have the same formula as last season's but they are exactly as effective (or even better) than those. Kind of like the sense of looseness and easiness reflected on the runway. It does a decent job showcasing that.

love it; understated & chic- a great representation of the label.
clear translation of design concepts & branding aesthetics.

I love it and I love Lara. Why? Cause she is not in every single ad. I love the exclusiveness around her. I can understand why people are really happy because it's Lara. You see Lara-clones everywhere or people who photograph and make unique girls look like her and when I see a add like this CK, I'm happy it's the real Lara, she is not a good model but a amazing model. She really pulls it off already and I can't wait to see in in HQ. I love this concept, not much going on in the background and chic.

Also I don't think anyone could do that VP cover with the boobs like Lara, cause who has those like her? Also it's feeling the attitude, her personality and beauty.

I don't understand what's so great about this. I'll have to wait to see more shots.

The second shot is straight out perfection. Lara looks stellar, can't wait to see more. From the two shots so far, I definetly like it just as much as last season, if not more.

Beyond amazing! Beyond perfection! Beyond stunning! Beyond every word there is. Gorgeous! Lara looks very simple here but there`s something with her pose that shows dominance and with her glare that hypnotizes me

It's one of the few CK campaigns I've seen that just captures to perfection the aesthetic most people associate with the brand (people that don't even care for fashion included).. there's the freshness of their well-known scents coming out of these two pages, the modern beauty of the model, that New York sophistication and super clean lines.. Costa seems to have finally married the energy he started to inject into the brand only 2-3 years ago with the legacy of Klein and make it all very now and timelessly CK at the same time.
