Fab Ad: Dolce & Gabbana Cruise '09

Fab Ad: Dolce & Gabbana Cruise '09

Doesn't this happen to you all the time — you're lounging around a beach in a ball gown? OK, chances are it doesn't, but it has happened to Dolce & Gabbana's Cruise 2009 models Claudia Schiffer, Catherine McNeil, and Maryna Linchuk. While overly baked beach-goers fry in the sun, the pale (and pissed!) models sit around in their fancy frocks and tuxedo suits. The juxtaposition of the beach and the formal pieces make this one eye-catching campaign. It caught me off guard when I first saw it. Do you think these are effective or plain silly?

I like it. Definitely not your typical ad but I dig the juxtaposition of ugly tanned vs. model beauty

LOL @ Papaver. I saw this ad in a few of my mags, I think it's hilarious and great.

I don't care for it at all.

The "hunch" is one of Tyra's "high fashion" poses on ANTM. To be honest, it's lame.

I could do without the people in the bathing suits.

"Recent" hunched over look? I was just about to comment that that pose is so dated...

Pretty much what you would expect from D&G.

why is Donatella Versace modeling for Dolce and Gabbana?

I think I expect an ad like this from D&G. However, I am grossly distracted by the super tan [older] lady in the silver swimsuit. It's a bit bizarre, perhaps unfitting.
