Miu Miu Photographs Stacy Martin in Black-and-White for Fall 2014 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

No, you're not looking at a Saint Laurent ad with incorrect branding. These are the images from Miu Miu's Fall 2014/2015 campaign, lensed by Steven Meisel. The label tapped Nymphomaniac actress Stacy Martin to front this latest set of black-and-white ads.

Our forum members were pretty divided on the images.

"A bit too much like the Saint Laurent Pre-Fall 2013 campaign, not very original," wrote an unimpressed Nymphaea.

"Beyond insipid and even pointless. I have the impression I saw nothing. Plus, this concept has been done a million times and much better than this," Creative said.

And it seems 'insipid' was the vibe many others were getting, too: "[This collection] had such beautiful colours, it's a shame they shot it in black-and-white. Such an insipid campaign. What a shame," lamented Thefrenchy.

But a few people seem to dig the black-and-white images, or at the very least, appreciate the label's artistic direction for the campaign. "I do like it," gazebo said, "The colors were amazing so I would love to see them, but I get why she chose black-and-white, it's less obvious."

Elfinkova was also feeling the images: "I have loved Stacey Martin since I saw her in Nymphomaniac. She has a strange, delicate beauty that is perfect for Miu Miu. On the campaign itself, I think it's perfect. She reminds me a lot of Natalie Wood in these shots, especially the first. Very Mod."
