Probably my favorite campaign of the season.
Disregarding that, I'm absolutely puzzled as to why, of all the models, Bette didn't get a close up show.

Mine too, and the only one I love

I didn't like the first shot much, but the rest is lovely.

A lovely set of images, but in some shots the clothes blend in too much with the surroundings and for an advertisement that's not a good thing.

Wow, this campaign is beyond impressive. A nice change from David Sims, although I really liked his campaign last season. I knew this was going to be amazing judging from the first shot posted.

This is quite a romantic campaign but could have been executed better. There is no chemistry between models, nor between models and background setting, and the last shot with Fei Fei and Clement seems a bit random. Zuzanna looks stunning, and despite I don't see Fei Fei as a Valentino girl, she is beautiful and poised in it. The house has been delivering something quite different from the past, from collection to ads, too young and fresh for me to swallow.

Every single image is lacking - the clothes aren't impressive enough to have such a basic line up of girls on a naturally-lit and empty background.
The models have no motive - they look as if they have been told to do what they like, and though you'd think this would create something natural and beautiful, it just looks awkward - they appear dislocated from each other in very flat images.
This would be the one image with the most potential, entirely due to the perspective, but unfortunately it is ruined by the lace espadrilles and the wearer's expression.

And for me the campaign is 55% about Fei Fei . I don't even know who the girl is but like I mentioned in Deborah's thread, when you see her [Deborah's] body of work and then look at what Fei Fei projected here.. she just seems made for this specific lens and campaign, you almost forget about the rest. In that regard, I do think there is a lack of 'balance' between the skills or just 'involvement' of the models but for me, the weakest (or just the less 'strong') of the entire casting has got to be Maud, there isn't one picture when she doesn't look like she's waiting for the camera to click or like she's become extremely tense after holding the same pose for a while. Guess one could blame it on her inexperience.

That said, these are minor complaints, I still find the set to be divine and it's all about textures and making each garment come to life through the scenery, you often see photographers/labels dying to create a sequence between 10 pictures, and I love that in this campaign it's almost a marriage between the construction of the clothes and the materials of these abandoned houses and their synchrony with nature.

Wow completely stunning campaign, they absolutely knocked it out of the park with this one. Not only is the collection sublimely beautiful but the scenery is perfect utterly romantic, couldnt be a better backdrop for t he clothes. Definitely one of the top campaigns of the season, and easily my favorite Valentino campaign ever!

This. I'm looking at the pictures and I can't say I'm much more excited than about the first one posted few weeks ago. If the advertising campaign is supposed to sell the clothes, this is its problems - these clothes aren't saleable for me (and dare I say, some of them are plain atrocious).

I agree. The way the girls are posed are very Turbeville. They are not supposed to make sense or natural, but more in response of the backdrop in which they are in. The team at Valentino must be very impressed with the Haute Couture spread Turbeville did for them in Vogue Italia to also give her the campaign.

Out of all the shots, my favorite is the first 3 pictures. I think for this campaign, Valentino is not going for the girl looking for the high gloss luxe, but I guess the thinking girl who will see the beauty and the character of these photos. These are not the usual girly fare Valentino campaigns have been serving.

I was quite surprised that Fei Fei seems to be the leading girl, but she did really well. I totally agree that she fits the serene mood Turbeville usually goes for here.
