Fab Ad: Carlos Miele Spring '09

Fab Ad: Carlos Miele Spring '09

Carlos Miele loves his homeland Brazil so much — can you blame him? — he took his Spring '09 ad campaign, shot by Michael Roberts, on location there. Ipanema Beach and the Dois Irmãos Mountain in Rio de Janeiro served as the most exotic backdrop to the vibrant, silky gowns. "I was inspired by the dance between the woman’s body and Rio’s nature," the designer said. The models Miele chose to capture the essence of Brazil are natives Aline Webber and Emanuela de Paula. The contrast between their skin and hair makes for a magical partnership. And the ethereal dresses? I can't stop drooling. Cue the bossa nova music and it's golden.

The juxtaposition of colour is stunning! Beautiful work!

horrible modeling, and the hand holdy pose is so awkward.

Tacky. The models look forced.

Um, who hasn't used these colors, the aesthetic and the whole flowing women and nature thing. I just think the whole thing is cheesy as hell and super over done.

like the dress idea, pretty flowing in the wind....but they need different models...the blond has practically the same face and boring pose in each pic....they need to move more

I really like the idea of the ad - but only because it is different. The only problem is that they look so fake - did they PhotoShop them or something? I would love them if they were more raw...

Ugly ads. Ugly dresses. Disappointed...

That orange dress is to die for-and I love the movement of the fabric. I have to agree with lilegwene though...the background looks green screened, I would have liked to seen a sunset scene, possibly- and more focus on the surroundings.

The dancing is a little cheesy but I still like the ads.

Love the dresses and vibrant colors. The photos look like the models were in-front of a greenscreen and the background was added in though.
