    Denisa is a beautiful gorgeous girl no doubt.. but they somehow managed to make her more lifeless than ever...

    i think she just snatched Snejana's title of ice queen
    this is just the epitome of freezing cold stare

    The image brings out the flaws in her face, at the same time I really like it.

    i like that you can tell it's her right off the bat, she doesn't look anonymous..sure it's photoshopped to hell and back but what else do you expect from cosmetics campaigns?

    anyway, good for Denisa!

    Yeah, more dullness and lifelessness, please. I don't get how this is supposed to be a Givenchy ad, what a miscast.

    I agree.

    I disagree with Trevor's sentiment of this being an "ice queen" stare..she's not even connecting with the camera. There's nothing "icy" about her expression if you ask me. Denisa just looks bored and totally disconnected, while if it was Snejana she'd manage to look aloof-there's a difference.

    Despite that, I still do think it's beautiful and there's just a little asymmetry that gives it more character.

    when I said ice cold i sort of meant
    no life like there usually is in something that is usually
    extremely cold not really Snejana's ice cold stare

    good for denisa but did they have to make her look so...so... i don't even know what to call it honestly.
    it certainly does! she's terribly underrated.

    Yay for Ronald McDonald finally becoming an inspiration for a beauty ad.

    I'm seriously not liking this. It's not appealing at all.

    I don't think I've ever since an expression by Denisa except the blank, vacant/lifeless stare. It's so unappealing (both in ads and on the runway).

    But cosmetics are supposed to hide flaws, not to bring them out no?
    No offence, I like the image as well but it fails as a beauty ad imo:innocent:

    the branding identity from the ready-to-wear to the cosmetics doesnt translate; there is no image cohesion from one to the next. love givenchy, feeling like this could've been better- with both concept & model casting.
