I have a soft spot for Michael so it's a yes for me :p
I agree though, it looks quite editorial-ish.

I know right? This campaign isn't helping either and the clothes look dull. A complete fail as far as I'm concerned.

Hmm, after taking a better look I have to say that my initial statement was a bit premature. Michael is pulling some weird facial expressions. It does not look good at all. I like the clothes though.

The problem is not Michael, because he's the coolest actor around, but this looks like a bad editorial. Lifeless and uninspired, they could have done so much better.

Last season Tobey, now Pitt? It seems like all my friend's favorite actors are getting Prada campaigns. I'm starting to think she's an undercover casting director for Prada

Back on topic, this is so gross. It doesn't do the collection justice AT ALL. I was hoping my boo Benjamin would get this since he suited the collection so well but I guess he did not.

so, is Prada doing a round of bad editorials for their S/S 12 campaigns?

My response to these photos and the thread title was 'Ew wtf?'. So lame. Benjamin Eidem was robbed of a campaign!

I was when I read the title, too bad they got Michael's duckface in all of the shots! disappointing.. hard to believe Tobey Maguire's campaign is far superior to what Michael, who's a lot more experienced in fashion photographs, delivered here.

Benjamin Eidem would have been perfect for this collection. Given the nature of the collection, they could have done so much with the campaign. I don't understand why Prada always cops out.

I like David Sims, but he isn't right for Prada. They could have had at least used Willy and the result would have been far better.

What a waste.
that sums it up right there.

i love david sims, i love michael pitt in it... such a great cinematic quality to the ad - this is a real form of art, well at least it should be... and he makes that art "live" with his non-dull poses and expressions. the first first thing i thought when i looked at that waste of a womenswear (well not exactly wasteful with that stellar cast), is that david sims should have been hired for that job instead of the overbooked, overrated, overstayed, etc. etc. stevel meisel! i love the vintage feel of the image editing here, something that should have been employed in womenswear ads as well.

bravo 5/5!!!!

I like it. It's refreshing to see a "normal" looking guy wear these clothes. Although Jacob Coupe would have been nice.

I don't care for Michael Pitt, nor this particular collection. But, I do love this campaign. It definitely captures that 50s teen pinup vibe, but without the nostalgia. It's sleeker, slicker and quirky. I love that fine line between high fashion and junk culture that Prada always has finger on.

Michael's goofy expression makes it work. This stands out to me next to all those serious, beautiful and perfect models that everyone seems to want to see in campaigns.

This is the essence of the Prada attitude-- for me, anyways. Love it.
