I always love the simple campaign.

I love the idea but the hair and the make-up are horrific! The antithesis of the Saint-Laurent woman! This woman looks ill and lifeless, whereas the YSL woman of past campaigns is strong and empowered, even through the subtlety of make-up and hair.

Besides, this is very Girl With The Dragon Tattoo to me, am I the only one in thinking so? I see Rooney Mara and Mert&Marcus in this and it is far too similar to their US Vogue shoot.

what a disaster! I think MCB is one of the best models around and David Sims usually delivers but this is just disappointing. The background colors look so outdated, in general the campaign looks outdated, the hair, the styling.
Initially I thought it was a good idea to switch from I&V to Sims but now I take my words back

When I opened this thread and saw this I was so sure these horrid images would finally put a halt on the insane MCB worshiping on tFS but I guess I was wrong. People still seem to praise the hell out of this and I wish I could understand why. As much as I love MCB, I personally think this is godawful I hate the hair and the eyebrows, the cheekbones look ridiculous and the background colors don't compliment the clothes in any way. This collection looked much better on the runway.

The images are both stunning and horrific at the same time.

I think I will have to see the campaign in the magazines but at the moment I don't like it. Mariacarla might be the reason, not sure she fits this campaign.

Oh look, it's the queen

Love the second photo, the whole silent era movie star look is one of my favorite looks in fashion. And the color palette is really nice. The first photo could use some excitement though

I have no negative words for that. Nice to see YSL is up to changes and Sims did well with this campaign. Mariacarla looks stellar, she's like a beautiful porcelain doll.

i love that girl but seriously, those awful eyebrows ruin the whole thing. even that blue dress on the right, since that was one of my favorite pieces from the show.

The hair and eyebrows totally ruin it for me.

The first shot reminds me of Frida Kahlo.
