Fab Ad: Yves Saint Laurent Spring/Summer '07

Fab Ad: Yves Saint Laurent Spring/Summer '07

These Yves Saint Laurent ads are so gorgeously film noir. There is no doubt Stefano Pilati's work for the house has been successful and these ads are brilliant. They really transport you to a dark, mysterious room dripping with deep purple, where shadows lurk behind model Karen Elson's perfectly crafted seams. The color palette and photography are intriguing and really position Karen as a sexy siren - and I'm not a huge Karen Elson fan. These ads are where the checkerboard chick rules the world and it is a world I know I want to be a part of.

These are very dramatic and bold. I like that about them. It's a daring that most won't move towards since it's very killer vixen meets hardcore fashion.

I love how they make Karen Elson up to be so androgynous. To me, it's a totally modern spin on 70's androgynous David Bowie. Well done.

Karen elson is gorgeous she is so unique. I'm a fashiontv addict so I know my models. I wish I could have hair like hers.

I think this ad is very "High Style". Not sure I think the model is that attractive but she wears the clothes well.I'm thinking this will be a Fall/Winter look coming up.

the clothes look way too heavy and drab for summer/spring. i want to see resort! how about a cute black and white check cuffed short or breezy dress?

I like the throw back to the pinup, but I think we need a more toned down version for the rest of us. :)

seriously? karen elson is one of the few models in the world i can actually tolerate. she's actually one of my style icons, as a pale person with a yen for red hair and redder lips. she looks rockin', as usual.
