Edie Campbell Is Miscast as the New Face of Isabel Marant (Forum Buzz)

Is Edie Campbell set to become this season’s reigning campaign queen? It’s starting to look that way as the British model is already the face of Burberry and now stars in Isabel Marant’s campaign for Fall 2016. Sticking with Dutch photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Edie replaces model Raquel Zimmermann as the face of the trendy French label. Styled by Geraldine Saglio, the current cover star of WSJ Magazine is a natural in the shots which are giving us major flashbacks to the 80s.

Although our forum members are already tired of Edie’s presence. “Both of the Fall campaigns released so far have Edie Campbell. Oh lord!” cried guimon the moment the campaign came to light.

“LOL yeah, but I can live with her. She’s actually a decent, proper model. These images don’t do it for me though. They’re too repetitive and dark although it does create a mood that I like,” anlabe32 replied.

In the same frame of mind was Scotty: “It’s a nice campaign, but it would’ve been better if it wasn’t her..”

“I don’t get her appeal at all. Something in her face makes me think that she is related to Ted Cruz,” laughed Alto.

Unwilling to accept the change in casting was kokobombon: “I like that it’s so dark but what happened to Raquel? I was hoping to see her again!”

“I am liking the mood but it would’ve been better had it been Lexi Boling (because she suits this type of setting in my opinion) or someone else over Edie,” suggested an underwhelmed Malaya.

Burbuja8910 wasn’t exactly a fan either, discrediting, “The background is fine but I hate Edie’s poses and they made her look dull.”
