What a good casting combo though...

Two South African beauties. I love that this is different from the usual ODLR ad aesthetics, a little too fluffy perhaps but both look gorgeous.

Seems quite nice from what I can see, I like the pastel tones and that Katryn is casted.

I am familiar with Katryn's name but she has not been on my radar screen until now. In the image on the right, I think that she is channeling 1980s brat packer in a good way. Candice looks like Katryn's mentally challenged older sister which is not necessarily a bad thing, but she is not the substantive one in the image.

I can't make out the left photo that well but it looks a little Cruel Intentions, and if that is the case and they pulled it off, I am probably going to like that.

TTFN, off to subscribe to Katryn's thread.

I adore both girls separately, but they do not work together for me. There is no chemistry. It feels almost forced. Nevertheless, I think either of them would have worked in an OG campaign, but especially Katryn.

I don't think that's Oscar de la Renta's drift but I'll stick to your comparison and probably warm up to it with a clearer image.. it makes a lot more sense than popular vs. unpopular, commercial vs. non-commercial or any other BS that's promoted here like two freakin' models can be from two separate planets.

Now, I know this is Oscar de la Renta and his conservative dressing and conception of femininity is popular among American socialités but I've seen him done better while sticking to his guns.. presenting his beautiful and traditional clothes in a context and through design that's modern and aimed at women that look modern too and not just pretty and lazy, 2001 w/ Caroline Ribeiro, 2008 w/ Raquel Zimmerman.. and it's not about the models, you can achieve similar if not better results with the current cast, he just needs to get his act back together when it comes to campaigns..

Same thought Katryn looks like a frightened child being embraced by her overbearing mother.

My god what an odd pairing. Not digging this.

I am just seeing Katryn's uncomfortable look, and I cant get past it It's almost as if she is saying "get this b**** away from me"

Very ordinary. It's not campaign worthy.

Neither of them project any confidence while wearing Oscar. They both look very unsure of themselves, as though they are aware that they have no business wearing clothes that are clearly made for someone twice or three times their age.

I actually really, really like it. I don't know if its because I love Candice, or Oscar De la Renta, but I am really into this. The clothes in the ads look so lovely as well
