Fab Ad: Katie Holmes, Miu Miu Spring '09

Fab Ad: Katie Holmes, Miu Miu Spring '09

The model's been prepped and the photo's been snapped — meet the face of Miu Miu Spring '09: Katie Holmes. This pairing came as a bit of a surprise to us, and we can now properly judge.

Katie's strong bone structure always photographs well and the sepia tone of the ad delivers a cool, vintage feel. Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the ads were inspired by Italian director Fellini, and hoped Katie would appear to be a "luminous icon radiating a sense of mystery and theatricality." What do you think? Would you call this luminous?

personally, i really don't have an opinion regarding katie holmes so i was willing to wait and see when i heard she was doing this. however, now that i've seen it, i don't think she's a right fit for this campaign. bone structure duly noted, i just don't think she has the chops nor the edge to pull of something of this caliber, sorry.

haha, this ad is hilarious. it looks like something from SNL! seriously, they actually though Katie Holmes could pull off dangerous and seductive?! I like Katie Holmes fine, and I think she could have been really good, but I figured they would go for a more sweet but sexy look, which she can totally do (see The Singing Detective or her scene from that show Eli Stone). that would have been much better, and I think it works better for Miu Miu (it worked when Kirsten Dunst modeled for the brand). I just don't like anything about it - the whole scene is boring and unoriginal, the pose is second-rate, the styling is just plain ugly, and she looks crazt (or like she's trying to act crazy)...

She's no icon that's for sure.

I personally don't care for Katie Homes in her post-Joey days but I have to say she looks gorgeous in this ad. I can see what all the fuss was about.

Don't like, she's trying too hard to look fierce and her eyes look weird. Not the right choice for Miu Miu

She looks great. She should model and stop trying to act.

I really miss the old Katie :( And that does not look like her AT ALL!! I love the new Miu Miu look, but not on Katie.

I like it from the neck up, but they did something strange to her legs with the photoshop.

I like it, but it's not her. It's some extremely photoshopped thing, but NOT Katie Holmes.

I love it! I feel that Katie has a natural knack for modeling, and I LOVE Fellini and can definitely see the inspiration here. MUCH MUCH MUCH better than Lindsay Lohan's ads.
