As a fashion story, I'd find it rather sweet, although for me, it does have a slight bit of a Brooke Shields vibe about it, where you take a young teenager and make her dress like she's older, exploiting the unsettling tension which results from that.

I have a feeling I'm getting sold on this totally. Sure, I'm a total Miu bias (plus this collection is really fantastic) and I wasn't much convinced to Hailey modelling for this particular one, but I just help can't lovin' it.

Somehow she makes the whole thing so charming with the innocent, girlish allure. And let me say I just adore those two shots of accessories in the grass. Brilliant. Can't wait to see it in print now.

Love both Miucca and BW but nothing in this campaign makes sense. The clothes in the wrong context, the cast, the age, the angles. Even the little girl dress-up narrative doesnt match with the typical (somewhat lazy) BW setting and idiom. It really feels forced like Miucca wanting to be different. Oh well next season better, bring Sean & Seng!

True.
It totally matches that idea of a little girl playing with her mother's clothes that we talked about when seeing the collection.

I like this but it looks way too much like an editorial. The two railroad shots and the grass shots are the best, but I really can't see the Miu Miu logo under these photos or having these pictures at the stores. Like it's cute and all but I feel like it's kind of cheesy. I still think the first shot is the best! I agree though, Anais Pouliot should've gotten this campaign. Also is it just me or would these clothes look amazing with the set and concept of the Prada campaign?

I just adore these. Honestly. They are so charming.

And I just love how different these are from any ad campaigns we've seen is the last couple of years. I enjoy what I&V, Meisel and Mert & Marcus do for fashion, but when the majority of ad campaigns are all shot by this small elite group of photographers, the product all starts to feel the same. This is so fresh and I just cannot wait to see it in print!

And in cases like this, I have no issue with the brand using an actress/celebrity. There's a big difference between this and a Harper's Bazaar cover. Furthermore, I don't think the result would have been half as charming as these are if a model like Lindsey Wixson or Anais Puilot had taken Hailee's place.

I like Hailee, but this is nothing special. She looks like a little girl wearing her mother's clothes.

My thoughts exactly. I would have nothing against to see her in this season's Prada's ads or in the previous Miu Miu's campaigns, but when I am thinking about this collection, I can imagine only a mature woman wearing it.

i really don't think a model could have given it the emotional feel Hailee gave it. she's an actress after all, a quite promising one too at that.

i mean, there's a reason why models fail at acting

Now when you said it, I really can see it clearly. Like she went to the mother's wardrobe and now is swimming in the sea of the brocade shoes, or eating her pizza in her fancy dress. Count me totally sold on this, then!

Seriously...the pizza shot?
Not feeling ANY of these shots,they look forced and extremely unnatural

I love all of it. It's absolutely fantastic. There's such a strong sense of narrative behind these shots, as if there's a some complex story as to how the clothes got on the grass or why Hailee is waiting in front of a railway track or why she's eating pizza.

The pizza shot strikes me as a parody of Italian-ness perhaps?

I didn't like these until I seen the railway and the pizza shot. This is better than Marc Jacobs' ads for this year.

Poor Elle fanning looks so forced. These look more natural.

Now that I've seen more.......it's all a bit hit and miss. The outdoor shots work great IMO and the studio shots less so. It really depends which shots they actually use for the print pics.
Still think Hailee was a decent choice for these ads.
