Gisele Bündchen sharing the spotlight with other models only happens about once in a blue moon. But for Louis Vuitton’s top model-studded Fall/Winter 2013 campaign, we see her pictured alongside fellow Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana, iconic Estée Lauder face Carolyn Murphy and model/musician Karen Elson in the very same frame. As per usual, the campaign was shot by Steven Meisel, who managed to make the cast look harmonious rather than it seeming like the models were cast just for the sake of being well-known and expensive. The mood conveyed in the one shot that has been released so far is especially impressive. The cold but luxurious-looking setting, the sexual undertone to the models’ get-up, the dramatic makeup and the beautiful lighting all add up to a stunning image capturing the essence of the collection perfectly.
Members of the tFS forums liked what they saw, expressing mostly positive sentiments about the cast and concept of the campaign.
“THIS IS SO ICONIC ALREADY! It looks amazing, It fits so well with the clothes concept. I can’t identify a single flaw, it’s simply perfect,” gushed an excited jmrmartinho.
Tigerrouge admitted that “wigs aside, this is the first campaign that I've actually liked this season.”
And anlabe32 found that the shot was “alluring and appropriate for the collection” and, like many others, stated that she “cannot wait to see more.”
“Now this is what I call a campaign. Something there's an atmosphere that emanates from and in which I'm instantaneously absorbed. And of course, all of these supermodels in only one picture. I'm sold, this is perfection,” wrote Valentine27.
Testinofan couldn't help but notice that the campaign seems reminiscent of a Missoni campaign from the Fall/Winter 2008/2009 season, which was also shot by Meisel. An assessment several other members agreed with, although it did not seem to take away from their excitement over this campaign.
With a cast this phenomenal and a concept so universally appealing, it is no surprise most of us are delighted with what Louis Vuitton and its creative director Marc Jacobs delivered here.
