Marc Jacobs F/W 11.12 Men's Campaign: Cerith Wyn Evans by Juergen Teller
Ok, So I saw the Marc Jacobs F/W 2011 Men's Campaign and I was like.....what?! I thought it was fake, but it isn't! The "model" is artist Cerith Wyn Evans. I don't understand this at all, what do you guys think of it?

Gimmick. That's what I think. Like Helena's, it's weird just for the sake of it.

This is crap, we know that Marc Jacobs loves to be irreverent with his campaigns but this is beyond the limit. In the first image the model looks like a pedophile neighbor spying you though the window, and the balloons one...

That is not fashion at all, maybe for old people, actually no, that's not fashion to anyone except pedophiles. I am quite disgusted at it tbh.

I would understand if they were using him purely because he is doing something edgy and new but he's been doing this (excessively flashed pictures) like at least for 10 years which is kind of obsolete in fashion terms let alone distasteful... I still cannot forget him his editorial with KMcM. Still having nightmares... lol...

Who said anything glamor? Why do people keeping bringing that up. Who is asking for glamor?

No one is asking for glamor, but no one is asking for anything perversion either. How far can fashion really go? At what point does a photo stop being considered fashion? Balloons tied to the genitals of a man for an advertisement? At what point does it go too far? This is an example of how the industry pushes that boundary. The focus on the clothing is lost and instead, we are looking at his genitals.

Another example is Kristen McMenamy's editorial in 032c, also by Juergen Teller, where her vagina and anus are fully exposed. Quite frankly, it's not even shocking anymore, it's just tiresome and contrived.

Aren't you tired of perversion/nudity/vulgarity forced down your throat all the time?

^ No I'm actually not tired of it. I dont feel we have enough of this perversion. When people get used to it and dont find it "gross" anymore than it will be enough. I also like that they didnt use a male model, I am a big fan of male models but its nice to see a random person every now and then on an ad.

It is funny tho how most people liked that famous Gucci ad with Carmen Kass and her G shaved pubic hair and find the ad a classic rather than perverted or disgusting. But most people prob like that because: 1. its a woman, we're more used to seeing a woman's vagina in fashion, 2. Its "classy" and I bet if that same ad got released today it would have the same impact it had when it 1st came out, and 3. The people in the ad are models. Beautiful, young, and perfect models and they're also dressed.

But I guess I like perversion and looking at an old man's genitals... I guess im the only one here who doesnt find it vulgar
