Three beautiful young women Photoshopped into oblivion such a shame. I've never seen such horrible retouching from M&M, this is just way to obvious. TBH I'm kind of disgusted at how disfigured Natasha looks (anyone remember Sigrid and Chloe FW09 ) this is almost as terrible as that.

I think it's typical Mert&Marcus and seriously it would be way too ridiculous if they would have change their style into a'la Fendi ads only because you like it better. In this case I think Cavalli should have hired Lagerfeld to do the photos
I agree that they shouldn't have used so much Photoshop when they had gorgeous girls like that but in general I like this campaign. It's really powerful and mystical. The cast is so strong and I love the styling!

Not exactly how I thought it would turn out after seeing the vid.......but photoshop aside, very striking images which without doubt will look astonishing in print.
Sure they definitely could have made it more atmospheric, but instead went for the full-on sexy ethereal vibe in typical M&M style.
There was just no way this casting was ever gonna fail spectacularly. No way.
I hope this season they produce more print images than they have been doing.

how did the execution turn out so bad? it's f/w why didn't they keep with the season instead of adding the blossoming/bright flowers? the models you can't fault they are flawless

Photoshop killed reality stars.

I'm really loving the colours in the background too, but I don't think they work for Cavalli, and they certainly don't work with such amount of the horrifying airbrush.

I would've preferred a little bit more green.

Can't believe you are comparing a Cavalli ad to a Fendi one. Cavalli is meant to be insane and over the top, and for that reason I love it, that it is the opposite of all the Celine minimalism or trashy Gucci sex

Love it!
The drama makes this campaign better... but if M&M tunned down with saturation of colors
this will be much better, still love, pure fierceness!

Its funny, I like the finished ads, but I really liked the naturalness and more senual feeling from the video and screens.
M+M seem to go straight to over-retouching, when a great result was achieved naturally anyway. Like with the Gucci Pre-fall ads with Joan and Raquel, the video was gorgeous, but the images were unnecessarily over-retouched.

Ferocity and fierceness at it`s utmost best! Natasha won me over. Followed by Mariacarla then by the least stand out, Karen. I wished they didn`t edit the background too much (well this is mert and marcus) but It`s fall so yeah. Natasha`s poses are winning! It`s ferosha! Mariacarla`s facial expressions are beyond gorgeous. Karen is still pretty Karen.

Beautiful!
