This homogeneous ideal of the "prada" girl is just outright racist and marginal... it has to stop. Shame on you, Muccia.

^ YAY! You're back!

This is absolutely beautiful, but I'm not that amazed because we've all seen this idea before-Balenciaga SS06.

I can only recognise Nimue, Ymre, Sigrid and Giedre...

I'm not sure, but I think I like it! And who's the 4th model??? Is she Toni?

So true about Balenciaga, I guess it kinds of fits with Prada not to show their faces properly, in that it always has to be about the cloths (nothing wrong with that). You know who would have looked great in these ads? Jourdan, and I don't think it would interupt the harmony of the ads, because this collection really suits Jourdann.
Though I must say, AT LEAST IT'S BETTER THAN LAST SEASON'S DEBACLE!!!

It's much better Miuccia's one... Besides, the attitude's nothing to do with Prada...

I think it looks decent given that they crammed seven girls into one shot

it's difficult to tell who is who but I'm guess that was the point

I absolutely love this sort of idea of 'push and pull', Nimue looks as if she is pushing them whilst Ymre, at the end, is being pulled.

This is actually the way I imagined the Balenciaga campaign to look like.

Toni and Katrin shine her.
vicktoria is 2nd. from the right

Yes, definitely.

It's interesting, can't wait to see more, it's way too many girls for my liking.

I disagree with you, the designer has the right to use models that he/she thinks that matches with the brand.

I actually think the model cast compliments the light sand clothes very well. Makes it look like sculptures. So it is racist to not use a black model?
