The first shot reminds me of that one from Louis Vuitton SS09 with Madonna,so gross and so UN-Valentino again!!!
Yes, the open legs shot has that same sense of "trying too hard" that the Madonna ad had.

For me, a Valentino scenario is all about a woman using her mind, her money and her manners - not her nether regions.

The other shots intrigue me enough to want to see the whole campaign.

I think this is absolutely GORGEOUS.
This is reminiscent of past Valentino campaigns, especially the ones with Gemma and Hilary.

Perfect campaign for a horrible collection.
It's called "good advertising".

like everyone else, i think Iris looks amazing. but the campaign itself doesn't leave me in awe. I actually like how dark it is, but i think the set up is dull.

I really like this, very intense and Iris looks great.

Well putting them in the dark is one way to make crap clothes look decent, I suppose.

Look, this was an old-lady, dowdy collection. M&M and Iris have managed to turn it into something relevant and at least exciting, because the clothes were anything but.

That being said, there was simplicity to last season's ads with Stephanie Seymour that I do miss here. All in all though, Iris looks incredible and adds such a regal element to the images.

^^^ I agree youarearockstar. Mert&Marcus have managed to turn the collection into something that looks edgy and unique.

I'm loving the whole film-noir-esque vibe of it. I don't know about everyone else, but I get a David Lynch vibe here. It's very dark and mysterious but also very sensual.

The casting is a bit avant-garde for a first season campaign though. I'm not sure the women that would buy those clothes would necessarily be drawn in by Iris' aesthetic.

Valentino has always been about strong-classic beauty and femininity. Iris just doesn't capture that. She looks stunning, but is she's more of Balenciaga, Givenchy material.

also, one thing I forgot to add, she has a masculine face, so with the lighting and make-up combined, she looks a bit drag queenish.

I really like it. It turned into something that I could actually expect from the photographers but not from the collection. However, I'm not so sure if it fits the label.

I like the colours and the lighting, the ads are way better than the colection! I think that Iris is a very unusual choice for a Valentino campain and the first picture is quite tacky.

awful imitation of MM's previous works, while Iris herself is glaring

She fits the mood of the photographs perfectly... I also like the third one the best

Valentino is like a spaceship flying out of control. You just dont know whats going on anymore. Iris.......she's cool, but this is just ridiculous.
The open leg shot is dreadful.
