I don't see tacky or see Versace as tasteles, anymore (her collection was quite covered up and chic IMO), I see something unoriginal and boring.
I agree, the collection wasn't tacky. This ad though, totally ruins it. I don't know why they would hire upscale photographers and models when they could get someone so simple that could make the ad look 10000x better.
Kate and Testino are just sooo overrated. I don't get this concept.
hmm i think testino is doing a whole rip off of avedon's campaigns for versace in the 90s...and it's kind of embarassing how bad he is when it comes to the studio setting...these pictures are dead, theres none of that movement, personality and general liveliness and charisma that moss herself had exuded in those avedon pictures years ago...if versace wants a big name why don't they call meisel? at least he does a convincing "homage"....
