YSL’s latest ads are out, and they follow suit with the brand’s supermodel-centric spreads from seasons past. For FW09, Stefano Pilati once again enlisted the help of photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin as well as famous face Christy Turlington. Seeing as in the last few years YSL’s ads have featured the likes of Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, and Claudia Schiffer, it appears the French fashion house has officially been bitten by the supermodel comeback bug. However, rather than feeling dull as a result of the familiarity of the mannequins in question, the pared-down ads are charming as ever.
Also still hard at work despite competition continually being staged by younger, fresher faces: Shalom Harlow. The mannequin looks better than ever in a new editorial entitled “This Side of Hollywood” in Vogue Nippon. To her credit, the supermodel even manages to make a sequined robe work while making out with a stone statue.
