Fab Ad: Zac Posen Spring '09

Fab Ad: Zac Posen Spring '09

Ladies and gents, you're looking at Zac Posen's ad campaign debut. Here's the story on why he decided to jump on the bandwagon now. The publisher of indie fashion magazine Fanzine137, Luis Venegas, made him an offer he couldn't refuse: a double spread to create his ideal ad. Posen quickly assembled a team — Ellen von Unwerth as the photographer, his stylist friend Christopher Niquet, and model Alexandra Tomlinson — and got to work at his friend Lorraine Kirke’s house. "Once Ellen saw me singing Cole Porter, laying on top of Lorraine’s grand piano, she decided it had to be the spot for the picture," Posen said. We think it's kind of boring, what do you think?

The cat shows more emotion than the model. And I've come to expect more from Zac POsen. It's just a bit blah. Everything could have been amped up a bit and the model could have shown more energy.

I think it's cute and quite different, and I love that the model is smiling, but it is a little boring. the dress is fabulous, the model is gorgeous and interesting, and the cat is fun and cute. but it would have been better if she was sprawled across the piano and the (adorable) cat had been walking on the piano next to her. and I don't even like cats...

I it because of the cat, too. It has the same colors as my Sassafras.

I agree with nourhayaty. The cat makes her look more approchable, contrasting with the dress and make up. But I'm bias, I have a soft spot for kitties =)

I love any ads with cute animals in it. And that cat is very cute. :)

I voted for "amazing debut" because all I'm looking at is the dress in this ad. And that's really the point, right? I like that nothing is distracting from the point of the ad (well except maybe the cat and it's super cute).

It could be a lot better. You can't even tell she's on top of a piano.
