    More under http://www.tommy.com/hilfiger/

    I don`t like them because the pictures are much too airbrushed and I don't want the cool Bowie to work for Hilfiger. :angry:

    I know what you mean. It doesn't have the same mystique as Jeremy Irons/Donna Karan or John Malkovich/Prada.

    Yes, those were better images and they're actor so its natural to see them play a role...
    These pictures of Bowie look so wrong, they`re just cheesy.
    He´s currently in a tv ad for Vittel water but that's something different because it´s creative and fun to watch; current David walks through a house and meets all his alter egos from the past... you may watch it on their website:

    I think it's great to see some ads with interracial couples.

    it's funny..that never even occurred to me...i guess that's good and i guess it's good that they are showing interracial couple...

    however...i find the whole thing rather bizarre...this couple hardly represents the hilfiger-'all- american image'...also, how many 50 yr old's do you know who buy hilfiger?...it's just bizarre... :huh:

    The ads are ok, quite different from the usual Tommy ads....

    They really airbrushed Iman's face, she looks like she's 20 on those pics :shock: ! I would never have thought of David as a model for T. Hilfiger clothings, oh well ..... :blink: I guess Tommy Hilfiger is trying to appeal to an "older" audience.

    As far as I know Tommy's ship has been quitely sinking (buh-bye :arrow: ) - I think they are trying to rehash his image in any way possible.

    He'd want to have been paid very well to sell out to that.

    Perhaps he and Tommy are friends, or distant relations, because I really can't think of any other reasons but blood being thicker than water, and money being thicker than both.
