I wish the pose was better.All the poses before have really been intense,but this looks like it was just one of 758 pictures shot.too blurry as well.

It reminds me a lot of this ed from W Sept 08, though I think the editorial is better.

wmagazine.com

The ad isn't bad, but it could've been more given how perfect Karen is for the Opium image...though I doubt if anyone will ever manage to top Meisel's shot of Sophie Dahl for an Opium campaign.

I do like this ad. Karen is great and the feel of the picture totally connects with the image and feel of the product. Good one, although it won't be difficult to guess what my favorite Opium ad is

However, I have no clue what The Scented Salamander means...

Lol. The Scented Salamander is a perfume-blog

It's probably their watermark that's on the picture.
