don't like the sharks. I like the colours of the main pic but Ambers facial expression is not good.

can't tell because it's so small, but the color palette is beautiful and i think the sharks are cute and clever.

Sort of reminds me of a mix between the new Chloé campaign and the I&V Kate Moss "Goddess" editorial that was in W two years ago.

I don't particularly like it. I think the shark shapes are weird (would have preferred that if they had cut-outs at all that they at least be in a more organic shape) and I think Amber's head is a bit strangely positioned in the main picture. It would have been nice if they took one of the shots that they used in the shark cut-out for the ad.

I love the location.
Not liking Amber's face.
The sharks should be turned into.. fish. Or starfish. Not sharks.

Yeah i agree the colours are superb, and i actually quite like the shark shapes but gee Ambers facial expression... maybe it looks better close up. Cutxpaste, i was thinking the same thing when i first saw it, Mossy in W.

honestly the sharks disturb me a little...
but it looks good in general...

i think i love when I&V are shooting on the beach..... their colours are so 'unreal and dreamy'
they always manage to make me want to go onto the beach....

The sharks are a bit distracting, it took me a while to even realize there were other photos in them. The colours are beautiful, though.
