Prada Resort 2013 Ad Campaign

Posted on November 09, 2012

Let’s close out the week with something glittering, shiny and fabulous, shall we? The Prada Resort 2013 ad campaign will do nicely, we think. Have a fabulous weekend, dripping with accessories and attitude, darlings!

    • Nazzzy

      This is…disturbing, right?

      • susan6

         Yeah, there’s something very “uncanny valley” about this, like she’s a computer simulation of a person.  That’s probably what the stylists were going for.

      • http://www.djplaw.com/ Tadiana

        Zombie chic, is what came to my mind.

        • littlemac8

          Zombie chic for real.  She kind of looks like she’s had the top of her head sawed off, her brains eaten, and then plunked down and held into place by the headbands!  That would account for her vacant stare!!!

      • BrooklynBomber

        I’m not sure about disturbing (although, yes, that ceiling is awfully low) but mostlyI don’t think it’s a very successful campaign. The eye makeup isn’t flattering and doesn’t look right with everything else. A lot of the clothes and accessories don’t go together. Plus, the modeling isn’t so good. Other than that, though. . . .

    • Sobaika

      Want. All of it.

      • CPK1

         me too. Love it all.  Except the hookertastic shoes. They can go to Victoria’s secret fashion sow.

        • https://twitter.com/Gayer_Than_Thou Gayer Than Thou

          Good, because the hookertastic shoes are what I most crave.  For my special dress-up times.

    • choco

      This shoot feels really weird and aloof because her eyes are above my eye-line. I feel like I can’t make eye contact. 

      • Jacqueline Wessel

        It has an Alice in Wonderland look to it. As when Alice grows and becomes too big for the room.

      • Kristin McNamara

        Agreed. I was scrolling through this, and could only think, “What’s so interesting over there?”

    • homofascist

      I have a sudden urge to lounge around in silver platforms…

      • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

        Discofabulous shoes!

    • hughman

      I want to join a tennis club on the moon too! 

      • PinkLemon

         what’s with those headbands?? they distracted me. from everything else.

        • Lori

           Remake of The Royal Tenenbaums?

          • http://twitter.com/mktp michael tanner

            Royal Tenenbaums was my halloween outfit, it was all about the headband. 

        • NCDFan

          Really, I had to scroll back to realize there were different outfits. 

      • PinkLemon

         also, i thought this was chloe moretz.

      • Nicholas

        It’s the new Björn Cyborg line.

        • Vaniljekjeks

           Flawless comment. 

    • schadenfreudelicious

      i’m pretty sure her leg would not be able to support the weight of those platforms…..

      • http://CallMeJane.com/ CallMeJane

         I think that’s why she’s sitting down!

        • l_c_ann

          Sitting down or reclining in every shot.  I thought the shoes just would pitch her forward otherwise.

    • maggiemaybe

      Um. Creepy.

    • MilaXX

      Love that last bag. Chunky necklaces are supposed to be in this season. It will be interesting to see who wears them successfully.

      • kimmeister

        Those aren’t just chunky, those are like lifting weights with your neck!

    • hazydaydreams

      I maintain that Sasha is evil!Gemma.

    • filmcricket

      It’s like the 60s & the 70s had dirty hippie sex up against the wall of Studio 54.

    • Thuc Dang

      Well, when you have Sasha to be in your campaign, creepiness is surely to be found. She is known as one of the “death-stare” originals on runway.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      I’m not sure I’m on board with those headbands.

      • formerlyAnon

        I’m sure – that I’m not.

      • angryparsnip

         I was just going to say…
        NO MORE HEADBANDS !

        cheers,  parsnip

    • Laylalola

      I honestly couldn’t tell until the last two shots where she changes her facial expression whether she was human or a newfangled mannequin put into different poses.

    • Anathema_Device

      The bags are ringing my bell, but not the rest. The model’s dumbfounded expression in every shot is pretty hilarious, though. Yay! I got a two-fer: my pretty and my funny for the day!

    • http://twitter.com/tangodiva Tanya Wade

      Is this the “RIchie Tenenbaum Goes Glam” collection?

      • JillSpill

        That was my first thought!  Margot crossed with Richie!

      • http://www.facebook.com/taresa.asecas Taresa A Secas

        My exact thought! Oh Miuccia, we know what you were watching…

    • lalahartma

      I don’t like.

    • Synnamin

      CLOSE YOUR DAMN MOUTH!!! Seriously, I’m starting to have a hard time looking at groups of photos anymore, because they alk have the same slightly-stupified expression

      • adnama79

        Agreed, although I am impressed by her ability to make EXACTLY the same expression over and over.

    • MaryAtRealityTea

      Disco country club should not be happening. Eeks. 

    • everest19

      Sasha is B A C K.

    • l_c_ann

      So someone tallented with photoshop needs to add Brad Pitt’s Chanel No.5 persona sitting beside her. 

    • Monabel

      Could any live human keep EXACTLY the same expression like that?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_U5LTVYHX32MGMMXR33G7TOXVR4 Magdalena Monzerrat Ontiveros

      greeattt model, love to have her back in Prada!!! 

    • Qitkat

      I confess, kittens, this is me.
      I enter the secret room behind the hidden door in the midnight palace of dreams to go visiting that alternate hippie glamchic universe, filled with crystals and shimmer and shiny platinum shoes, planning my next world fashion takeover.
       

    • adnama79

      I never knew how much I wanted a jeweled sweatband.  Damn.

    • mandy rees

      The only thing I see is stripper shoes!!

    • http://profiles.google.com/diana.ruskin Diana Ruskin

      Boy, Abigail Breslin sure looks swanky!

    • decormaven

      “I’m trained to look at only shiny things in the distance.” Giggles aside, that’s a very handsome handbag in the final shot.

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      I really like the first and last bags, but I had such a negative reaction to how this is all put together I had to scroll through a couple of times before I even saw them. It’s all a bit more challenging than I need.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_BA6BTBV4V3MQRX6K2HDEL7Y7TU MerridithK

      Looks like Bjorn Borg + Halston + Chanel + Studio 54

    • guest2visits

      I guess she’s supposed to be in very tricked out limo; this reminds me of a Madonna video.

    • formerlyAnon

      I think the dresses might have a beautiful simplicity, could one see them on an upright model. (I’m sure I can go surfing and find, but not now.)  The shoes are lovely for this shoot. Philistine that I am, Prada purses rarely send me and these do not.

      As for the rest, well I have decided that Prada is just an idea-factory and it’s not about whether one actually likes or not (usually I do not) it’s about what filters down & how.  More so, I mean, than even the typical fashion house. This reminds me of the ’70s but they’ve made it theirs more than usual. I foresee many tragic, extremely tragic, hideously, horribly cheap-looking knock offs of the gew-gaws. Because to me, even the originals look cheap-ish.

      And legions of sad racoon-eyed teenagers & young women if that eye makeup is a trend.

    • spooki C

      Sequined sweat bands…. WHHHHHY? Oh LAWDY, throw it in the fire.

    • PeaceBang

      I got hypothermia just looking at it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/beccalise.deveaux ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

      This creeps me out SO much and I can’t put my finger on why.

    • RocknLox

      This was all the same picture.

    • quiltrx

      I don’t like her dead, dead eyes, but I DO like the first and last bags!

    • Trisha26

      I want both of those black bags – but the headbands make it difficult to look at anything else.

    • Janet B

      I have to spend a lot of time looking at each photo to see everything.  Weird and pretty.

    • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

      Not feeling the headbands, but I love those improbable, impracticable, yet discofabulous silver shoes.

    • http://figgylicious.blogspot.com/ Figgy

      Those giant necklaces are tacky as all hell.  They look like Christmas garlands.

    • kategs

      Those ridiculous headbands are pulling the focus off the gorgeous bags and jewels.  And yeah those shoes need to be in the VS show. 

    • KathKo

      there’s a alien atmosphere that come off those shots. I blame the wide eyes/open mouth and heavy make yp combo.
      I find good only the last shot. The model doesn’t look so much unreal.
      Well, I can’t stand open mouth models. I agree that parting lips relaxes the jaws and so soften the face, but it makes most models look heavily stupid and that not something I like to see.
      Other than that, the bags are cute but the jewellery’s to heavy.

    • Little_Olive

      Must be a heeluva resort, because after putting all that stuff on I doubt I’d have the energy to go in the water 

    • miagain

      headbands… not so much!!!

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      I just can’t get behind those headbands.  Nope.

    • JANE LANE

      I find the bedazzled sweat bands fascinating.

    • Emily Wilson

      There must be something very interesting over on the left.

    • crash1212

      Guess those stylish people who sustain head injuries while resorting are set.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      All I have to say is:  What the hell is with the sweatbands?  Are we bedazzling them now, too?  I do like the clothes.

    • NNgela

      WHAT IS SHE LOOKING AT???

      • margaret meyers

        And can she please close her mouth while she looks at it?
