Red velvet men’s suit. It is one of those things that doesn’t really work when said out loud, but in pictures is quite gorgeous. I wonder who is going to attempt to pull that one off on the red carpet. I can see this being in Ryan Gosling’s wheelhouse…
I can see Alan Cumming, killing it in that velvet
With very little prompting I can usually see Alan Cumming in my mind . . .
It’s got to be somebody really skinny. Otherwise it will just look like Santa Clause on a cruise.
Yes, a thousand times, yes! That quilted jacket? Me wants it!!!
I’m a woman and even I lust after it. Gorgeous!
Derpa derp! I forgot how to bag…
I am always so sad that for some reason I can’t get these ad campaign posts to play on my computer.
Are the pics missing? If you’re using AdBlock, that’s why. I had to disable it for TLo’s site to see all the ad posts.
Thank you! That did it.
Note to self : get new prescription glasses.
But everyone looks so much more gorgeous in soft focus.
For damned sure I do.
You should see me in the dark. I look exactly like a frickin’ supermodel.
Your truth is mine, sister.
Yeah, I’m on board with most of this stuff. I so wish I could pull off that elegant, androgynous look, and I am a sucker for both velvet and sparkly fringe.
Height. That’s really all I need. If my legs were longer I’m sure I could sufficiently disguise my hips. [Note delusional thinking which led to the mysterious disappearance of many of the photographs of me between the ages of 17 and 30.]
Gloves like that (on a person who is not also bundled up for winter weather) always yell “serial killer” to me.
See my post below. Same exact thought.
Nice. Definitely did not see that before. Great minds.
The clothes are lovely, and elegant looking, and the campaign is a refreshing change from the heroin chic of some of the others. The models expressions seem to consist of look left, look straight ahead and look right and that’s it.
Jackets and spats … oh yes!
I LOVE every single photograph of her. Gorgeous model and incredible clothing. And her hair! I die of envy.
He’s fine enough, and the menswear is quite elegant too, but she looks like she could even pull off that Cate Blanchett dress better than Cate.
The hair reminded me of Bride of Frankenstein. Love the clothes.
She is Tilda Swinton from the parallel universe where Tilda has dark hair.
I was thinking she was Helena Bonham Carter.
They look like still from a German Expressionist film.
In architecture school I used to design buildings with oddly shaped triangular rooms fairly often. My professors would always ask me who the hell could possibly put such spaces to use, and in answer I would always hand them photos from high-fashion photography books. Stupid architecture professors, they always miss the point. Pretty clothes, though.
Understated luxury at its best.
That. Turban. I die.
I hope her hair recovered from this shoot?
Hopefully it was a wig and her hair didn’t need to recover at all.
Spats are on the comeback trail?
Am I the only one who hopes not?
God that MariaCarla can do no wrong. She is all porcelain skin and cheekbone heaven
I was scrolling through saying “Gloria Swanson, Katharine Hepburn, Hedy Lamarr, Audrey Hepburn…” And yet, the clothes look thoroughly modern.
Those are some gorgeous, elegantly tailored suits. Why don’t the boystars get their suits fitted?
Probably because they wear them off the rack or out of the showroom rather than buying and tailoring their own clothes. Another reason celebs should take a note from Oprah’s book!
She’s fabulous in all the shots. The gloves that he has on in 90% of his shots read a bit too serial killer to me. His expression does not help on that front. That’s a “lock your doors at night” campaign, not a “must have the clothes” campaign.
Fifth from the bottom, please. And don’t forget the earrings. I’m in love, seriously.
Mariacarla is sooo beautiful in a gamine kind of way…I have B&W photos of the young Kate Hepburn and they could be related. These clothes would have suited youthful, elegant Kate, as well.
Beautiful, elegant, classic Armani. Love.
Tilda, your wardrobe is ready.
The black gloves he’s wearing in most of his pictures kind of give me the creeps. Can’t say why, really.
Very atmospheric. Nice to see the models being recognized for their impact. Great styling here too.
I am really not trying to be a jerk but don’t all their ad campaigns look exactly the same? It’s not just me right? That aside, the men’s clothes are heavenly and the women’s are hiddy-grandma. Black velvet pants? Really? Like the black velour pants the old lady was wearing at the grocery store this morning? oh puhleeeeze….
She is exquisite, and that last shot of her in the black suit is just definitively representative of Armani. Gorgeous.
Nice bitchy-rich wear. It’s good to see something you know is crazy-expensive actually LOOK crazy-expensive.
All the shots are lovely, and the suits are gorgeous!
In one shot I see Uma Thurman, in another I see Swinton. Mariacarla Boscono is quite the chameleon. At least I think so.
She has a strange and mesmerizing face, I can’t stop looking.
Gorgeous. That last shot is especially breathtaking.
I really, really, really wish I was taller and richer. Ah well.
Why the gloves?! Why????
Is it me, or are these photographs extremely out of focus?
