You know, I thought I had it all figured out. Until that controversial pr thing from the maison came through. Now I don’t even now how to call them anymore: Saint Laurent? Saint Laurent Paris? Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane? I’m so confused!
And now it’s only getting worse. Anja Rubik – one of my favorite models right now, and one of the most present in pictorials, ad campaigns and catwalks over the world, is the face of the new Saint Laurent ad campaign as photographed by Hedi Slimane (or so it seems – there’s no telling if this is the actual campaign or just a friendly set up from fashion fans). I would jump up and down with joy and excitement, if it weren’t for the pictures you’ll see right after the jump! Go on, hit the jump! You know you want to see it!
What you’re witnessing now is a side – by – side comparison of the new Saint Laurent Paris ad campaign as imagined and photographed by Hedi Slimane and another series of pictures, also by Hedi Slimane but published in the April 2010 issue of Vogue Paris. I know it’s a flawless vision and a perfect set for – otherwise perfect as well – Anja. But really, Hedi? 2010?
