Posted on June 30, 2011

Kittens, you know how we’ll show you something pretty and say “Here’s your pretty for the day?” Well, here’s your fierce for the day:

Let’s all tape this to the back of our front doors so it’s the last thing we see before we leave the house every day. Touch it every morning on your way out and tell yourself, “I will be fierce today and take no shit from nobody. May Naomi guide and keep me.” A fabulous fashion mezuzah to help you wade through the shit of the day, darlings. You’re welcome.

      Super fierce!

      That is a strange picture. Is the in the corner because she’s been bad? She looks like an object being displayed on a pillow. Definitely fierce though.

      Meh. All I can see are her mouth and the shadow.

        Agreed. I feel like this shot had potential to be so much more. Photographers’ fault, not hers.

      My mind goes spinning off into the plots of [mostly bad] sci-fi/fantasy stories. In none of which does the creature on the pillow mean anything good for an anonymous minion.

      Fashion mezuzah…  I love it!      Truthfully, she’s giving out a bit of Grace Jones vibe as well.   She’s another FIERCE one.

        I was thinking she looked like Grace Jones’ love child – but Grace had spawned her asexually, like an amoeba, because “Grace don’t need no help from no stinkin’ man genes!”

        Grace Jones meets Catwoman – exactly what I was thinking.

      Yes, this is just what I need to help me unleash my inner fierceness.

      The scale of the pillow and lack of any other references makes it look like she’s tiny. Tiny and fierce and evil. It reminds me somehow of the Ray Harryhausen Sinbad movies, like she’s some demon or witch reduced in size by a spell.  Or possibly a djinn. I can see her raging, shaking her tiny fists in fury.

      I get this feeling from this photo that Naomi is some high-priestess of doom who is preparing the altar for the ritual virgin sacrifice! Yikes we better round up and  hide the young innocent Hollywood starlets. That should take about 5 minutes.

      Sorry. People who freaking ASSAULT other people lose all their fierceness with me. I just feel sad for her now since she obviously has such issues. 

    • MilaXX

      She should bottle whatever combination of good genes, insanity, diet, exercise & surgery keeps her looking so great. Werq!

      my god, that’s exactly what i need today.  WERQ.

      Wow, I wish I could suck some of the fierceness out of that picture for myself. Damn.

      “A fabulous fashion mezuzah.” Sometimes you guys just speak directly to my bitchy Jewish soul.

      It’ll be interesting to see how all the final campaign turns out:  

      In the behind-the-scenes video, Naomi seemed much more at ease with the assignment (well yeah) than Natalia . . . Couldn’t really tell how Mariacarla and McMenamy were doing, but I wouldn’t think they’d have much trouble.  NV wouldn’t have come to mind for this sort of pitch, but Tisci loves her and she sure can take direction from the right people, so … we’ll see.

      Isn’t Naomi Campbell, like, 50 now?  I’ll have what she’s having.

        Me too, she may have had issues (and don’t we all) but girl is fierce.

        Given Naomi’s reputation I bet she is drinking virgin blood that is how she maintains her youthfulness.

      Not fierce at all.  She’s trying way too hard, so it looks forced, not fierce.  Fierce has to be natural, and this isn’t.

      If I had a will I’d write you into it for the “fashion mezuzah” line.

      The “fashion mezuzah” bit was awesome!  And Naomi is the picture of fierce – I love this!

      She takes great pictures, doesn’t she?

      I tried to contact you thru your “contact” button but I could not get thru:

      I saw an advert w/Drew Barrymore yesterday for deep red luscious lipstick, and because of youse guys tired to see what she was wearing: red lips, red shoes, hint of red cami, black top or jacket and I am unsure if a skirt or dress in black which absolutely matched each other.  I thought, hmmm for a fashion spread this is matchy matchy,  BUT they were selling lipstick not ready-to-wear>  and her lips were LUSCIOUS.

      Do you ever take non-clothes ad campaigns apart in this manner?

      I THINK I saw Fergie deepthroat cherry Dr Pepper this pm.

      And she looked VORACIOUS, which again is the gist of the ad.

      Any thoughts?

      Fashion mezuzah. Yes! I’m seeing a bit of Grace Jones here. The face looks a bit off but this catwoman is still fierce! Rawr.

      Too scary.

      Cheeky 1, my first thought was ‘grace jones’ too.  I mean, she’s Naomi Campbell, so she will always be a bit too pretty to be as stiletto fierce as the divine Ms. Jones, but wow, great effort.
