The Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2012/2013 ad campaign images are raw, grainy and overexposed yet again, courtesy of Juergen Teller who has been shooting for Marc Jacobs for the past 14 years. Up-and-comers Marie Piovesan and Marte Mei Van Haaster feature in this one –which I am very excited about– although you can barely see their faces due to the ‘geisha makeup’.
Not to be outdone by that, stylist Alister Mackie picked heavily adorned and overly styled looks which incidentally were some of my favourite pieces from the Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2012/2013 collection. The oversized hats were a must but I wished there was a better shot of the pilgrim shoes which I have a feeling are going to be a hot trend this Fall. I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for that!
Ugly, hauntingly scary and more shots of those pilgrim shows. Here is the rest of the Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2012/2013 Ad Campaign featuring Marie Piovesan, Marte Mei Van Haaster, Ros Georgiou, Tati Cotliar and Magda Laguinge.

Elle Fanning stars in the latest Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 ad campaign shot by Juergen Teller. The ads feature Elle Fanning donning heavy outerwear and dresses that seem too big on her but she pulls it off with ease by staring rather blankly into the camera looking like she owns it; albeit a little nonchalantly. The photos are dreamy with a slightly surreal atmosphere but I’m unsure of the outfits selected here. I wish the stylist had chosen more outfits with those eclectic prints and that striped colour-block coat plus a metallic piece. But that’s just me. Otherwise, selecting Elle Fanning for the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 ad campaign would have proved to be a winner.
Looking back at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 ad campaign again and you realise that Elle Fanning is only 13 but she has over a dozen editorial spreads to her name including this one. With the age factor in mind, the Miu Miu Fall/Winter 2011/2012 ad campaign starring Hailee Steinfeld instantly comes to attention. I had written in an earlier post about the ad campaign that the Miu Miu Fall/Winter 2011/2012 collection needed someone more appropriate to model as Hailee Steinfeld looked somewhat young. But I have recently gained enlightenment.
Ad campaigns have always been about the collections, the clothes, the bags, the shoes and the accessories. The model is merely that, a model to show the collection off. It is about selling dreams and fantasies, breaking away from the norm to grab consumers’ attention. You don’t relate to the model or celebrity wearing the collection; you see the collection for what it is no matter who is modeling it. Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld are just two young starlets modeling designer clothes, heck, they even wear designer clothes (yes young girls be jealous). Let’s just look at the ad campaigns as such, you don’t have to read too much into it. It’s just simply beautiful clothes on pretty young things.
