No Photoshop this time! The Spring Summer 2009 Ad Campaign For Louis Vuitton starring her Madgesty has surfaced just weeks after rumors took the internet by storm.
The pictures look every inch suited for The Core Values Louis Vuitton campaing. Shot indeed in the little café Figaro, the pictures look impressively better than what we would’ve expected. Slightly depersonalized and highly inoculated with Madonna’s ways, the two first photos look more photoshopped than what I’ve previously mixed for fun. Actually, looking at that smug expression on Madonna’s smooth and perfect face, admiring her wrinkles-less looks, I’m sadly forced to conclude that fashion is nothing more than a façade. A marketing circus to cash in as much as possible where brands melt into one another for image purposes. How do you like your Louis Vuitton featuring Madonna? (more after the jump)
Even if four more pictures remain yet unseen (the campaign hits media in February 2009), the new Meisel collaboration with Louis Vuitton looks very Leibovitz-ish to me. I wonder if Madonna’s paycheck (believed to be appx $12 million) involved Meisel as photographer. He worked with her back in the “Sex” book days and he wasn’t Louis Vuitton’s usual campaign photographer (Mert and Marcus were). Would that be a possibility?
