    You think? I think she has a very conventional type of beauty. She is stunning. A knock-out!

    Of course not, that's not what i meant.It was reported that he declined to do many major campaigns this season (Dior even!) because they didnt want to meet his paycheck demand.For many brands who were hit by recession his fee was simply to much this time around, and he didnt want to lower it, so they parted.Of course Meisel still got tons of work, it was just surprising to see he took on this one,imho.

    Wow, this makes me a little disappointed, because i thought making art is more important than money for such a talented artist :(

    oh and i like the ad :lol:

    shooting an advertising campaign to help a fashion label to boost its multi-million dollars sales of overpriced goods is not quite what one would call an art form. so i don't see anything wrong about Meisel demanding for a certain level of fees. he's at the top of his game and his name, to some extent, is a brand as exclusive and powerful as, say, Dior. so he may be picky.
    as for the campaign, i totally share Miss Dalloway's sentiments. with the questionable typography and overdone photoshopping this image reminds me of instant coffee ad rather than haute joaillerie advert.
