Here’s the real deal!
To be honest, I don’t like this at all.
Its over-photoshopped beyond reality.
She looks like a stiff doll, like a wax sculpture from Madame Tussauds.
Like a computer game character rather than a real person.
No emotion at all.
Check out her right hand. There’s a line thingy that looks like her hand is detachable, like a mannequin!
Is that the concept?
Now, I really want Mert & Marcus back.
Or keep Meisel and use real models.
According to Madonna Tribe:
“MadonnaTribe has just received some fresh info about the upcoming Louis Vuitton campaign featuring Madonna who was photographed by Steven Meisel for their Autumn/Winter 2009 collection in New York on April 29 under the artistic direction of Marc Jacobs.
We’ve been told that the result of this new collaboration is once again simply stunning but most importantly for those who were worried about this “Part Deux” it looks very different from the Spring campaign and has a completely original feel.
Madonna’s look in the new images will be basically the one you’re all familiar with thanks to the MET gala: long boots, a few variations of dresses mainly in blue and magenta, and this year’s Vuitton’s signature bunny ears.
Madonna is always wearing gloves and in every image she holds a different bag from the new collection of the French maison. She’s portrayed leaning on a sofa and seated on an armchair, with a heavy, plain curtain in the background. This time there is no set location at all – the atmosphere is a bit dark and definetly intimate.
One interesting part is that each image is digitally enhanced with colorizing effects that somehow recall the high-dynamic range photography, giving to the new campaign an absolutely contemporary yet timeless vibe.
From what we understand up to seven different images – spanning from close-ups to american-shot compositions – will be released in the August 2009 issue of fashion magazines worldwide coming out next month.”
