In the most surprising twist since the Fall 2015 ads started to roll out, Michael Kors has a brand new face for his namesake brand. Natasha Poly is ushered in as the designer’s model of choice, replacing Karmen Pedaru who’s fronted countless campaigns for Kors. We shouldn’t be totally surprised since Natasha opened the show during NYFW and has been wearing various Kors pieces to numerous fashion events. Photographed by Mario Testino, the Russian beauty and current face of Isabel Marant reclines in the back of a vintage Rolls-Royce while wearing the all-American Fall 2015 collection.
Although change isn’t always for the better, according to our forum members. “Wait, so you’ve got Karmen…who’s been a Michael Kors girl for what? Ten seasons fronting everything! Now you’re gonna downgrade her to Fugly by Fugly Kors and let Natasha get mainline? SERIOUSLY?!?! Might as well just have gotten rid of Karmen entirely instead of reducing her to that ‘other’ label. Natasha’s shots are OK though,” ranted a frustrated GERGIN.
“The Photoshop in the mainline campaign is laughable. Natasha looks like a CGI character rather than a human being. That was shady to ‘downgrade’ Karmen (and Benjamin) to the lesser label. Couldn’t they have just put all three in the main campaign?” asked orchidee.
Forum member Nomar wasn’t impressed, either, expressing, “His campaigns are the same every season and just as boring as well I might add.”
“Natasha looks okay. It’s nothing special but at least we see someone new in the mix,” shared MON.
In agreement was VersaceVixen009: “Natasha looks stunning and I’m happy to see a somewhat change within the Kors brand.”
