Magdalena is made for modeling because she is phenomenal in that video, which is executed amazingly

The video is simply fabulous, I love the cold cyber-otherworldly feeling in it.

the campaign video is beautifully shot! in my opinion, this makes up for the lackluster print ads and overall collection.

Absolutely bizarre, how a video can be so watchable and very effective and then the print ads can be so mundane.

^Because the video isn't shot by Steven Meisel (as far as I'm aware).

Miuccia Prada‘s esoteric perspective is one of the primary reason’s why Prada is one of the definitive brands of the last century. Steven Meisel takes that ethos and channels it into a chess-centric and haunting film filled with unanswered questions. The presence of Vanessa Axente, Magdalena Frackowiak, Madison Headrick, Elza Luijendijk, Iselin Steiro & Anne Vyalitsyna certainly doesn’t hurt either.

I don't always find models.com to be a reliable source of accurate info, however...David james has not shown up anywhere, and if that's the case then I do agree that it was Steven Miesel in charge of that video until there are other reliable sources provided that David James was in charge of the video campaign.

He's been the creative director for Prada for the past 14 years or so, both for print and video campaigns. Obviously it's less confusing to just announce Meisel as both photographer and director, since the video and print are so similar (and Meisel is a well known name)

^^ well, creative director isn't exactly the same as photographer/director.. it actually makes much more sense, thanks for clarifying style_expert

First time that I don't like a Prada campaign, the print ads leave me cold. The video, however, is brilliant. I agree that Magdalena is the star here.

well, I doubt Meisel is shooting the film as well, and even if he is being credited as the film director I doubt he is actually the one doing it. I heard he just sits back clicks and presses a button to shoot now and isn't really hands on or involved like he used to. It's more of his team doing it

Meisel doesn't take pictures anymore himself that's true but he still directs his shoots from behind a computer screen or something. Many film directors do this as well and yet they're still credited as "directors" so maybe he doesn't holds the camera but in a way he must've been involved in the whole directing process.
