(images via fashiongonerogue.com)I love the August and September issues of magazines. You get to see all the new advertising campaigns. I've always enjoyed leafing through the glossy pages and seeing the latest in beauty and fashion come to life.
Well, Louis Vuitton has always been consistently strong in their advertisements. They are always shot by a high-profile photographer, and the top tier hair and makeup artists coif the subjects to sheer perfection. And for their Fall-Winter 2010 campaign it is no different. Photographer Steven Meisel enlisted the expertise of hair genius Guido Palau and makeup guru Pat McGrath. And the end product is amazing!
The images elicit a very Mad Men-esque vibe. Natalia Vodianova, Karen Elson and Christy Turlington, each style icons in their own right, make up a hell of a team. Their beauty spans the age brackets (Natalia in her 20s, Karen in her 30s, and Christy in her 40s). How gorgeous do they look? I mean, honestly, each lady is oozing sex appeal without being overt. And I love how they are seemingly "caught in the act" of preening backstage.
There is not one thing I don't love about these ads. From the soft, earthy makeup tones for fall (put a few on your lists now, ladies) to the old-school-glam ponytails, I'm sold. While I won't be purchasing any LV items in the near future, I have been inspired to try some new fall beauty routines.
