    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

      • formerlyAnon

        With very little prompting I can usually see Alan Cumming in my mind . . .

    • AmeliaEve

      It’s got to be somebody really skinny. Otherwise it will just look like Santa Clause on a cruise.

  • MilaXX

    Gorgeous menswear

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    Yes, a thousand times, yes! That quilted jacket? Me wants it!!!

    • Vanja

      I’m a woman and even I lust after it. Gorgeous!

  • mmebam

    Derpa derp! I forgot how to bag…

  • barbarienne

    I am always so sad that for some reason I can’t get these ad campaign posts to play on my computer. :-(

    • sugarkane105

      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.

      • up with pod people

        Thank you! That did it.

  • hughman

    Note to self : get new prescription glasses.

    • kimmeister

      But everyone looks so much more gorgeous in soft focus.

      • Coolekat

        For damned sure I do.

        • kimmeister

          You should see me in the dark. I look exactly like a frickin’ supermodel.

          • formerlyAnon

            Your truth is mine, sister.

  • filmcricket

    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.

    • formerlyAnon

      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.]

  • Emily Giovanni

    Gloves like that (on a person who is not also bundled up for winter weather) always yell “serial killer” to me.

    • demidaemon

      See my post below. Same exact thought.

      • Emily Giovanni

        Nice. Definitely did not see that before. Great minds.

  • Glam Dixie

    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.

  • joything

    Jackets and spats … oh yes!

  • Qitkat

    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.

    • sunnycalif

      The hair reminded me of Bride of Frankenstein. Love the clothes.

  • MemHey

    She is Tilda Swinton from the parallel universe where Tilda has dark hair.

    • RedRaven617

      I was thinking she was Helena Bonham Carter.

  • SewingSiren

    They look like still from a German Expressionist film.

  • NOLA_gal

    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.

  • Clueless_Jock

    Understated luxury at its best.

  • KirFla

    That. Turban. I die.

  • bertkeeter

    I hope her hair recovered from this shoot?

    • mlle

      Hopefully it was a wig and her hair didn’t need to recover at all.

  • decormaven

    Spats are on the comeback trail?

    • Getoverit

      Am I the only one who hopes not?

  • itcantallbedior

    God that MariaCarla can do no wrong. She is all porcelain skin and cheekbone heaven

  • Constant Reader

    I was scrolling through saying “Gloria Swanson, Katharine Hepburn, Hedy Lamarr, Audrey Hepburn…” And yet, the clothes look thoroughly modern.

  • Linda LaPaz

    Those are some gorgeous, elegantly tailored suits. Why don’t the boystars get their suits fitted?

    • demidaemon

      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!

  • demidaemon

    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.

  • Snailstsichr

    Fifth from the bottom, please. And don’t forget the earrings. I’m in love, seriously.

  • sleepycat

    Boring!

  • moxie_lady

    Ladypants!

  • Coolekat

    Absolutely fab.

  • StellaZafella

    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.

  • alyce1213

    Beautiful, elegant, classic Armani. Love.

  • LaSylphide

    Tilda, your wardrobe is ready.

  • Louise Bryan

    The black gloves he’s wearing in most of his pictures kind of give me the creeps. Can’t say why, really.

  • Trickytrisha

    Very atmospheric. Nice to see the models being recognized for their impact. Great styling here too.

  • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

    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….

  • ankali

    She is exquisite, and that last shot of her in the black suit is just definitively representative of Armani. Gorgeous.

  • quiltrx

    Nice bitchy-rich wear. It’s good to see something you know is crazy-expensive actually LOOK crazy-expensive.

  • ItsDicey

    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.

    • anyalama

      She has a strange and mesmerizing face, I can’t stop looking.

  • Jacquelyn

    Gorgeous. That last shot is especially breathtaking.

  • formerlyAnon

    I really, really, really wish I was taller and richer. Ah well.

  • Jessica Rose

    Why the gloves?! Why????

  • Coleen

    Is it me, or are these photographs extremely out of focus?
