    Tragic photos. Tragic cast.

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should. Olivier needs to leave the photography to the pros. The angles are so unflattering, it's all one big blob of tackiness.

    From the clothes to photography.... I didn't even recognize the beautiful Tami at first. Here we go again with that Roosmarijn girl. She's basically giving that same blank face she gives in almost all of her insta pics. Atrocious all around.

    His photography skill is like his lips: ONE BIG MESS. It looks like he's trying to be Karl.

    Well, admittedly I wasn't expecting to be bowled over when I read the title. Glad it's in colour, and I like the energy and that it's so glossy, but the photography is trite and the cast so random. Maybe Olivier should develop his 'style' elsewhere and not on the campaigns of Balmain.

    I find it visually stimulating and have no doubt that it will look eye-catching in the magazines. I can feel the energy. The cast is pretty weak though. I mean, Roosmarijn de Kok :ninja: Never thought I'd ever see her in a Balmain campaign. I know they wanted to go with 'young and fresh faces' here but it could've been better.

    Are they having financial problem that can't afford a decent photographer?

    Everything looks so cheap and C-list. All the shots are too cluttered, without a good composition. This is all slowly turning into a D&G-type level of cheap and stale repetitiveness.

    I'm shocked. I didn't expect it to be this extremely cheap. Everything is awful. Photography, clothes, models.

    People are talking about Roosmarijn but everyone here is really random.

    This.

    They're all trying so hard to look edgy and cool I'm actually sorry for them.

    A masterclass in awkward angles and facial expressions

    horrible shots, those look like they were shot with a wide angle that gave them pumpkin heads

    To me it's look like an imitation of some Kors campaign but ten times worst.
    I can't believe Olivier dragged Tami into that mess I can barely recognize the amzing girl I saw on that gorgeous Valentino campaign

    Random C list model cast , poor execution and lets not even talk about the male shots..
    Sorrenti please come back
