The criticism of this ad is completely baffling to me. The backdrop is so out of focus in these images, so I don't understand how anyone could be looking at anything from the clothes. Karlie's recent print work has been underwhelming for me but Patrick's glorious, soft lighting and simple composition really elevates her presence here. I feel like I'm back in 1992 looking at these .

I don't think it's about the focus, it's about the light. It could be the quality of the first two images as stated before, but the light creating the sort of 'halo' around her is so blown out. And there's not much light on her- I realize this isn't a photography forum, but I think the campaign would look a little better applying traditional rules of photography and using the light a bit more effectively, or with just a little more light reflected on her..I get the sort of romantic look they were going for, but it falls a little short of intention to me-but hey, he is Patrick Demarchlier.

I also don't think how they were trying to use the color of the garments with the background works that well in the first, but it does work in the second set (with it being gray and all ) And there is a highlight on her and the clothes in those, so the use of light in that one is more effective and works better. At least in my opinion. But it could all be fault of the quality of the picture posted, the second one looks much better in quality and resolution.

Remarkable. Stunning photography by Mr. Demarchelier, overall fabulous styling, and exceptional modeling by Karlie. It's really a treat to see such simple, softened posing from her since we rarely see that nowadays.

I do see that now that I have looked at the initial images. I am probably a little biased though, so that might have clouded (pun) my judgement.

The thing is that seeing images online never conveys the realistic outcome of the image in print, so I think we will have to see how the colours work on glossy paper.
