French actress and model Lea Seydoux is the face of Prada’s Resort 2012 print campaign, but you almost wouldn’t know it by looking at the ad.
“If that is in fact Lea Seydoux then they should have just used some random model as they sucked the life right out of her. Completely dull ad all-around,” HeatherAnne declared.
Melly5525 wrote, “Wow I didn't even recognize her. I love the accessories but nothing stands out here, the lighting is too dark, they could’ve done a lot more with her.”
Rockangel shared his take on the ad: “Lifeless pic, lifeless color, lifeless model…. zzzz.”
ParisFashionMuse quipped, “The only thing that draws me to this campaign is the concrete background.”
Let’s hope Prada and Lea can redeem themselves with any subsequent campaign shots, because clearly the first impression isn’t going over so well.
