Our forums were treated to a preview of Prada’s Spring 2015 campaign before the new year and to our disappointment, Gemma Ward was nowhere to be found, despite her big comeback on the Prada runway during Milan Fashion Week. But we need not have worried because the Aussie beauty is confirmed and we have the proof! Photographed by Steven Meisel in New York City, Gemma stands before the legendary photographer’s lens wearing a patchwork dress, while carrying a leather bag from the most recent collection. Ine Neefs also joins the cast and rumor has it another model will be featured when the full campaign is officially released later in the season.
Most forum members were thrilled. “Probably being biased but Gemma could have carried the entire campaign on her own. Her shot is so much better than Ine’s. So happy to see her here. Next stop VI,” admired Melancholybaby.
“Stunning. I’m glad that Gemma got the campaign,” added burbuja8910.
Also full of praise was pivoslyakova: “Wooow! That pic of Gemma is making me like the collection a lot more, she makes it look so luxurious, very beautiful.”
JennaaMonroe shared her excitement as she raved, “You can’t expect Gemma and Meisel to fail. That’s near impossible. This is magnificent! Seeing Gemma is delightful and this campaign is killing it!”
Although amazingly, not everyone was so impressed. “Do not get me wrong, I am SO happy to see Gemma but I am not liking the way they did her eyebrows nor the boring concept of the campaign. Come on Meisel!!! You’re a genius, you can do better [than] this!” posted VersaceVixen009.
“Gemma or not, the shot is totally and utterly forgettable. The definition of underwhelming. The only notable thing about this campaign so far is how mediocre and dull it is. Passport photos are more striking and have more personality than this snoozefest,” MyNameIs disapproved.
“Thanks, I find this campaign incredibly dull, Gemma is not doing anything to save this,” replied zacatecas570 in agreement.
