It has everything in it that fashion has been missing the last several years - personality, innocence, soul and love. Fashion should always be about WHO is wearing it. We've lost that important fact in this age of street style and blogging stars who pile on every IT item humanly possible to hide the fact that, on the whole, they're dull, uninteresting and sad people. All I see here is a proud, radiant mother holding her newborn and photographed in such a way that there is nothing gimmicky or objectified about it. It all looks so natural and so genuine!
I agree with you that the picture is very powerful. Mariacarla does look amazing..her gaze is powerful and...so stoic. It's reminiscent of Raphael's Madonna and Christ.

I'm not sure whether or not I like the baby (in the picture), part of me feels like it detracts. But that's because for me it has this sort of strange presence that brings me to the large babies in Renaissance paintings (sooo creepy). That's my own subjective interpretation of the image..i still think it's strong. Though i'd beg to differ on the 'so natural and so genuine' part, if the rest are as sublime there may be some hope! Because the first few menswear shots are sooooo borinnnn'.

I love all the photos but I just don't feel it when it's called a campaign. Though I still love it. such stunning portraits. (And what's up with all these B&W campaigns?)

Well yeah, it's a beautiful shot of her and her baby but please, ditch MCB. I'm just SOOO tired seeing her in every Givenchy campaign. Looking forward to seeing Kate's shots. But so far, this campaign is boring...

Mariacarla is Givenchy. This shot is now part of fashion's iconic imaginary.

This campaign is dull, but the only thing is save on this is the ad with Mariacarla & her daughter, is pretty amazing.

Let's to see the complete campaign to write my real opinion.

It was such a colourful collection and they choose to be B&W in the end? Not sure what to make of it...leaning towards liking it!
