    • Insidiously

      As the phrase that was so famously coined in reference to someone with a predictable style-rut:

      “Of course.”

      • JosephLamour

        That male model is ZOOLANDERING more than any model has ever Zoolandered before.

        • Kristin McNamara

          And for a man, he has far too much lipstick on…
          ETA: And I believe you mean Blue Steel ;)

        • Audra Hammer Ross

          Exactly! He’s giving us Blue Steel, Ferrari, Le Tigre, all of it!

        • Jessica O’Connell

          Are his lips just like that or does he actually believe that doing the duckface look is acceptable for a high fashion ad campaign?

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Well, aren’t we the kinky ones?

      • carlaaxtman

        What this photo spread really needs is a couture leather riding crop and a fancy fetish mask.

    • StellaZafella

      Okay, NOW I want to be this young, this skinny and this into leather…again.
      WOOF!

    • Karen Belgrad

      The only thing this ad inspires me to buy is the leather chair

    • MilaXX

      This looks like a promo for the next CW sexy vampire show. I like her booties, his boots & her eyewear

      • mellorcr

        They will suck your blood so hard it bruises their lips! The better to pout at you malevolently with!

    • mmebam

      Lord, bless. There is no graceful way to lounge nonchalantly while holding a handbag next to your head.

      • alyce1213

        She’s playing “Pull my tassel.”

    • Victor Beiramar Diniz

      oh honey, duck-lips much?

    • sablehunter

      That’s one fierce catwoman

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Oh, we’re giving out “Dangerously Sexy Super Spy” this time. Gotcha.

      • formerlyAnon

        Well, we’re trying.

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          For me, its really the styling that bugs so much. The clothes themselves are just fine.

          • formerlyAnon

            For some reason the consistent chin tuck, pout, & gaze-from-under-brows look is ruining the whole effect for me. Got me near giggling.

          • StellaZafella

            Tho’ I wanna say, I saw it as if it could be a promo for a remake of Bowie/Deneauve/Sarandon “The Hunger”…especially the last shot with the sunglasses.

            • formerlyAnon

              “Bowie/Deneuve/Sarandon” . . . it’s like a special little mantra, with a Pavlovian response somewhere in my gut.

          • Louise Bryan

            I particularly love the purple and black combos. The red is too dark and bloody.

    • miscorrections

      Paging Robert Palmer!

    • Just Me

      Modern day vampire realness…if you like that kind of schtick. Ann Rice would be so proud to know that Lestat lives on as the artistic director at Gucci.

    • Danielle L

      CHEEKBONES.

      • anotherkate

        Painted on, looks like. (I mean, I’m sure she HAS great cheekbones, but all I see here is contouring.)

    • quiltrx

      Angular. Shiny. Leather. Gucci.

    • Diego!

      Angelina Jolie’s lips everywhere! This screams “for skinny people only” I can’t see myself wearing anything here… I’m not thin enough

      • zenobar

        Mere mortals were never meant to squeeze their non-consumptive physiques into these clothes.

        • Diego!

          hahaha right! ;)

      • Aurumgirl

        I’m not thin enough either, but you can be damned sure that I’ll be looking for those knee high boots she’s wearing to add to my wardrobe.

    • formerlyAnon

      How can the two of them have exactly one “look” – down to the chin tuck – between them? I think the major difference is whether or not the pouty lips are parted & how much.

      Took my focus right off the clothes/accessories and killed any hope I’d be enveloped in an atmosphere of danger, glamor or sex – by the sunglasses I was almost giggling.

      • formerlyAnon

        Nope. Went back and tried again. Reminded me even MORE forcefully of moderately talented high school kids trying to do dangerously sexy for the annual play or fashion show advertising flyer & so pleased with themselves they posted the photos online.

    • TAT93

      Abbey!! She’s awesome as hell as always, finally see her return for the brand yay! NOW the collection seems pretty typical for Gucci, but I dare the lady stars to give them a try. It’ll either be a disaster or a total Werq though, can’t wait!

    • Griffinqueen

      Some of these campaigns make me think of my beloved AB FAB, when Patsy would make a rare appearance at her office at Vogue magazine. All the editors (I loved Magda!) would be sitting around the table blurting trite, repetitive ideas–”Glamour, sex, Rock N Roll, luxe, Monaco, Milan. I want who’s in and who’s out. I want a Mick Jagger boy in black leather. I want a girl from that Robert Palmer video.”

      I am paraphrasing , of course.

    • bertkeeter

      Tedious!

    • Sonja

      Those shoes look like torture devices. There’s a reason none of the models are pictured actually standing in them.

      • NoveltyRocker

        The center of gravity on those things is just OFF. Treacherous.

    • kimmeister

      I know it was intentional for this shoot, but her nearly invisible eyebrows are perturbing.

      The booties look pretty awesome, but last time I checked, most humans’ ankles aren’t set in so far away from their heels.

    • Nancer

      I hope the people at Prada are paying attention because Gucci gets it right. THIS is the way to sell luxury goods! Beautiful.I think maybe this is what Prada was going for… dark glam. Instead Prada got heroin shriek (instead of chic).

    • Sonja Brisson

      “Suck in your cheeks. No harder, harder. We want to see the outlines of your teeth. More, more!” After the last shot, they both vacuumed in their own faces.

    • alyce1213

      19 (?) photographs with the exact same facial expression. The clothes and accessories are really fine, but the ad campaign sucks.

    • NMMagpie

      Lips. All I saw were lips.

    • zenobar

      Is that Roderick from the Wimpy Kid movies? Parents?

      • zenobar

        I have researched the matter and this is not so. I kind of wish it had been, because Loded Diper.

    • PeggyOC

      Apparently Gucci bags make you unable to fully close your mouth.

    • http://dorothydamage.wordpress.com/ Dorothy Damage

      I love that he’s giving more face than she is. Love it!

    • Jaeda Laurez

      WANT that purple bag. Lawd have mercy.

    • Belvane

      Peering through the gloom… are there fashion items to buy here? Does anyone have a flashlight?

    • Monabel

      Hilarious!

    • NoveltyRocker

      But for the stiff bamboo handles, really gorgeous purple purse…

    • Nicholas

      These look so much better, if you imagine it’s a scene from one of the Underworld movies.

    • AnnPopovic

      I could live happily in this world for a couple of weeks.

    • Jennifer McGuire

      Goth with a hint of steampunk. Yikes. That said, I love the man’s purple leather jacket, and I wish I could pull off the black suit with the feathery/palm business going on (with that bag!). But I do not look at all like Tilda Swinton.

      • conniemd

        That suit was freaking amazing. I coveted it immediately. Not sure it needs a Tilda type, but of course she would totally rock it.

    • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

      Women with purses in your mouths: You’re doing it wrong.

    • another_laura

      I need a tourniquet. I have been seriously cut by the cheekbones.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      Blue Duck. Kill me.

    • somebody blonde

      The contour is just way too much. In some of the shots, it looks okay, but in some, it just looks like the poor girl got coal on her cheek.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Serving up Boris & Natasha realness.

    • LipstickForPigs

      All I could think while scrolling was “Please dear GOD don’t let nude eyebrows be a “thing” this year…I JUST got mine to Shipka Level 1…”

    • YoungSally

      There may be such a thing as too much Leathah….

    • d4divine

      The ad is corny and predictable as hell, but…I’ll take one of everything.

    • boweryboy

      Dude is a bit young for me, but damn he’s hot in a ’80s dark, smoldering Peter Murphy kind of way.

      • formerlyAnon

        He’s got way better interesting planes & hollows to his face than she does.

    • Anniebet

      He could sell me anything. She seems incapable of closing her mouth. The bags and shoes are great, leather jackets – especially his purple one – spectacular.

    • Sarah Thomas

      He looks like Viserys Targaryen.

    • queen b*tch

      More wet look hair, but at least its in context this time.

      I would love to turn up to the office wearing some of these, it would blow my co-workers minds!
