i wouldn't like this campaign as much as i do if vanessa weren't in it. her face is amazing, she looks great, but the ad itself is just ok, same old mert & marcus aesthetic, very louis vuitton, which i generally don't like. and i have to say, she's a great 'model', very versatile. i can imagine her doing many campaigns for very different designers, i think she can easily transform herself to suit different brands.

Vanessa Paradis revealed for fall campaign
Monday, June 23, 2008

(NEW YORK) Described as "yet another interpretation of the Miu Miu woman," the Milan-based fashion house today unveiled its Fall 2008 campaign starring Vanessa Paradis.

Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott in Los Angeles, the 35-year-old singer and paramour of Johnny Depp was chosen by Miuccia Prada because she casts a "certain powerful independence." In the shot pictured here, Paradis is shot clad in a monogrammed superhero-esque top, carrying an embossed leather bag.

For fall, Miu Miu branched off into sportier territory, and Paradis captures "the overlapping qualities of fragility and feminine strength" that lies in stark comparison to the darker mood portrayed by Kirsten Dunst in the current spring campaign.

"The impact and drama of the images continue the enduring dialogue of Mrs. Prada, a conversation concerning the subject of womanhood in our times," the company said in a statement. "At once a deconstruction and a pure visual composition, the campaign addresses the exploration of beauty in conjunction with intellect, imagination and divergence."

She has the perfect european face. I think she's great for MIU MIU.

They did the initial letters on the clothes! That's very interesting.
I need to see more to judge.

the clothes have little reflection towards the setting. meaning i wish they incorporated the idea of scuba wear better.
