Scarlette Johansson for Louis Vuitton!

Don't get me wrong... you all know that I am the first to endorse a campaign (that sounds like I am modeling for the product) with a celebrity modeling the product. But sometimes the idea just doesn't work.

I am a fan of Lindsay Lohan's turn as the face of Jill Stuart and Miu Miu, I love when Louis Vuitton takes a celebrity and makes them memorable in an ad campaign. Loved Madonna for Versace and Nicole Kidman for Chanel.

But I am NOT a fan of this season's use of Scarlette Johansson as the face of Louis Vuitton. Why?? Models are models because they fit the bill in every format. When you take an actress and use her for an ad campaign it is because you are using their sense of style. When you go and start morphing their style for the company's agenda you really start to make a mistake. Now you all might be thinking I am pigeon-holing Ms. Johansson... but she is a Vixen and is picked for roles that take on her curvaceous body... her alabaster skin and her ability to morph into a look reminiscent of the Victorian era.

But the Valley of the Dolls... she does not!! I hate this campaign with a passion. The outfits are truly terrible, the don't flatter her curvy figure and her skin looks like she suffers from the same issues as Lindsay Lohan... and needs to head herself to a rehab soon. What do you all think?

Side note.... I am in love with the Orange dress... Fantastic Louis Vuitton, FANTASTIC!

Tell me they aren't changing the world of FASHION!!!

OK OK.... I know I am harping!!! But please people tell me they aren't ever changing the world of fashion and of how we see it. I know you are saying... this is just W's way of paying Homage to a story about a couple who loves each other just as they did for Angelina and Brad... but when you look at these shots they don't look like Celebrity to me... they look like Perfection.

I know some people are sad that models don't take editorial first in American Magazines, and then I tell you... WHY WOULD THEY??? These two, are sublime to perfection, their visual presence is not like any person in Hollywood. And to be honest, they aren't celebrities persé, this is an Athlete and a Designer savvy Soccer Mommy by all meanings.

There is a reason why these people are muses, because they rock a photo spread like no others. They are making me want to re-enact the poses... goodness help my husband, because they make me want to Fashion not my wardrobe but my whole life after them.
