Because half of her face is obscured?

^I'm sure the B&W effect emphasizes her nose which is makes her stand out among the crowd. With a normal nose this girl would look plain.

I can't stand Hedi Slimane's photography. Literally everything he's shot is black and white and probably in a studio. So what confuses me is why he moves HQ to LA to focus on his photography when he could just move to Paris and do the same thing. This ad, like the collection, is bullsh*t. I can't wait to see these clothes on sales racks looking old and dusty, because that's exactly what the result of the collection was. Clothes that look good on the mannequin, but once they're on a hanger in the sales room it gets dusty.

What a depressing campaign, seriously.
And no, I don't think Julia looks any better than she normally looks. Plain bad.

Black & white photography doesn't make the clothes justice here. For example, the sequin jacket would certainly look more appealing and luxurious in colour. Furthermore, through his photoshoots I get the feeling Slimane doesn't truly understand women and/or female bodies and that might be a future issue.
Julia looks the most interesting she's ever looked.. anywhere.

What a great way to depict a spring/summer collection. Words can not describe how vibrant it looks. Major kudos.

This is so redundant! We've seen this exact aesthetic from Hedi before, ten million times before! His shoot with Kate Moss was far more accomplished and convincing than this.

Besides, Anja's Saint Laurent shots were much better. That one shot in the tuxedo alone by far surpassed the mediocrity of this campaign. Anja's SL shoot contained a perfect balance between Yves and Hedi; chic, Parisian but with a touch of 'rock' (or whatever Hedi's aesthetic is).

My problem with this campaign is that it is too much Hedi Slimane and not enough Yves Saint Laurent. At least Pilati had a respect towards the imagery and the historicism of the house. Slimane is all about his own aesthetic and not so much about the house. He thinks he is bigger than the house, and I predict this will be a problem that YSL will never overcome.

As a whole I do like it, it did sum up as a collection to me and it's very Hedi's style. I like the change of it from classy to rock n roll vibe. But I feel like Anja's version is more elegant and suits the whole collection better.

The clothes fade into the background. Depressing. It doesn`t lure me to buy anything. It`s like an ed from Vogue Japan
