Britney Spears Candie’s 2009

  • Pin it

From the iconic pair of Candie wood bottom slides from the eighties to Britney Spears isn’t a clear path. I could, of course, force a chronological relation with Britney’s early years (she’s born in 1981, the same year the Candie wood slides came to light), but where would all the Brit-fun be?

However, Candie’s choice for their 2009 ad campaign puzzles me: they say Britney Spears is a performer/personality girls (from allover the country) look up to. Wait, what? (the story continues right after the jump, don’t miss the gallery with Britney’s Candie’s ads and the videos and the unretouched photos from the Update, right after the video!)

Last I checked, there wasn’t much iconic and role model left to the Britney Spears soup! Miley wasn’t available?

(and you have to love how Candie’s are age-silhouette-cellulite-gravitation defying! There isn’t a single spot of skin or tissue irregularity and the bags fly on their own in Candie’s advertising campaign with Britney! oh, and shouldn’t she look happier?) (via 1, 2)

UPDATE: Recently photos from Britney Spears Candie’s campaign were released just as they were: untouched by the Photoshop magic we’re all used to seeing in magazines and ad campaigns (especially when celebs are involved). Allegedly published at Britney’s request (because she thinks there’s too much pressure on women to look perfect), the unretouched photos show her real skin, and her real body, just as they are.

(she didn’t accept her ads to be retouched to start with, finally coping with the fact that the unphotoshoped images will be released in the same time as the official campaign. Which wasn’t the case, the campaign we’re talking about was effective for last year – 2009 – while we’re first seeing the untouched images one year later – 2010) (photos via)

Britney and Candies are a good match. They always have cute shoes paired with a star who has a bit of ‘controversy’ like Jenny McCarthy. Also didn’t Britney do an ad for them before?

Is that the real Britney? how photoshopped are these pics. We all know in what condition she is lately. So it’s only a matter of time and we will see the REAL Britney again. Nothing else then a spoiled kid, just like others in the States which have some attention. I’m sick and tired of these socalled celebs, scusa but thats the true. And about the brand Candie is that a world brand, NO only in the States they are famous. Here in Europe we never heard about them. Arriverderci

Ellington, you’re right, you can’t have Candie’s without a good controversy! I was under the impression that it was Britney’s first time for them, but I could be wrong…

Valerio (welcome back!), it’s the real (as real as photoshop gets) Britney! I think she derailed because of all the pressure she had to put up to when she was growing up. The first moment of liberty she though she had, she jumped off the wagon straight into the jungle. But she knew only her princess wagon and the Jungle was a strange, cruel territory for her…

The classic Candie’s is a comfy but great looking shoe, I’m sure it has a correspondent in any corner of the world!
