She may be in London flaunting her toned physique for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but Karlie Kloss’ latest advertising campaign for Jason Wu surfaced earlier today. The 6-foot-1-inch model reclines with the designer for his Spring 2015 fashion spots, captured by Dutch photographic duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. We’re certainly used to seeing Wu star in his own campaigns since he’s previously been shot alongside models Adriana Lima for Fall 2014, Karen Elson for Spring 2014 and with Stephanie Seymour back in Spring 2013.
Even with the presence of a beauty like Karlie, our forum members set their sights on Wu. “Awful hair. And Jason does not really have a face that I’d like to see in an ad campaign,” exclaimed an unimpressed anlabe32.
“Yeah, get yourself out of the ad, it’s obnoxious and stupid,” replied gazebo, sharing the same sentiments.
“He looks like a midget in that shot. Why does he have to be in the campaign? He’s not Tom Ford. Poor Karlie getting that hideous haircut,” agreed jj36.
Also feeling the same way was Nepenthes: “I was wondering when Karlie would show up in a Jason Wu campaign. The hair is weird but she looks great and so do the clothes. Jason really needs to stop featuring himself in his campaigns, though, it’s getting a bit ridiculous. It feels like less of a high end ad and more of a magazine feature.”
Do you think the designer should remove himself from his own campaigns? Is it only OK when Ford does it? Add your two cents and see another campaign image inside the thread here.
