Marc Jacobs Ad




I think the quirkiness of these ads featuring Victoria Beckham is ingenious. It pokes fun at her celebrity status by casting her as a product, probably a reference to her omnipresence through countless photographs. The MJ ads are refreshing in an era of glossy, airbrushed fashion ads. The photos have a rawness to them and often portray their subjects (which included Dakota Fanning) candidly. This is increasing my desire for a polaroid camera.
