Maybe it’s the lack of sun here in Los Angeles or the fact that I’m trying to cut down on my coffee in-take for the day (yes, I peaked at 5 cups a day, judge me), regardless, I’ve been irritable and quite knit-picky when it comes to this season’s slew of ads! No doubt I have my favorites…Hellooo need I say more than Prada and Fendi…But as always with the good things in life, come the bad, so it’s no surprise that there’s one campaign that I just can’t stand…
Okay, not that I’ve ever really been a Badgley Mischka fan, but now that their new face is Rumer Willis, I can’t help but dislike the brand even more. Why, oh why is Rumor modeling for them!? Is it because of her breakout roles in “The House Bunny” or “Sorority Row” or is it because her mother is Demi Moore?
The ads themselves are just awful…and dare I say amateur-like? Shot by, James Duran the whole shoot reminds me of some sort of prom-night photo…Rumer stands on the beach in her gown sans shoes “trying” to look sultry? At least the second shot is better, maybe because the focus is more on the dress and not her.
Am I being too harsh? What do you think of Badgley Mischka’s latest campaign?
