Here's the final image, which is quintessentially Yves Saint Laurent:

Oh thank the heavens, this is gorgeous. And I like that it's a bit more conservative than the previous ad. Though I still think Mariacarla's ad is still the best.

That's Opium after she's been to rehab. In a way, I suppose the blandness reflects the spirit of reformulation.

^This is an ad series that should not have gone to rehab.

It's boring.

Good to see the ad is really beatiful in the end and Emily looks just gorgeous in it

I dont know...It's beautiful for sure. But something is off. Maybe it's the fact that they've got a British girl for what's arguably the most French perfume after No.5? Or maybe that it's just too conservative (although I like that!), or maybe it's because Emily Blunt just isn't a YSL girl. She looks rather....cold?

I like it but I think that they could have done something more with Emily. Judging from her eds, she can definitely do more dramatic and sensual shots. Hey, at least it isn't the first shot that a lot of people thought was the actual campaign.

why not use the original one? which is more seductive and timeless. loreal is a retarded group without aesthetic, it ruins the brand's heritage.

Not really, the other definitive British faces were Kate Moss and Karen Elson in YSL Opium ads too. I think it's just the results were a little short of with what they could do with Emily.

This is definitely one case where a relapse would be desirable.

It's not as catastrophically wrong as the "preview image" led us to believe it would be, but it's a far cry from living up to the name...since that's really all that's left of Opium.
