The Campaign Trail: Fall 2011′s Best Ads

Oct 19, 2011 By Amy

It’s time to play in piles of leaves, pick out a Halloween costume, and embrace the magic of pumpkin spic lattes. Yes, it’s officially autumn and in celebration of the season we’re rounding up our favorite ad campaigns. While there are many that stood out, we painstakingly narrowed the bunch down to our favorites.

*drumroll please*


The ads are just as lively and fun as the video created to promote it. Now we know what it’s like to be a high fashion model and dance to Pitbull, all whilst wearing insanely fabulous attire. Thank you Alber Elbaz and props on your mad dance skills. We like a designer who has talent and can cut a rug! Models Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann aren’t so bad either. Photographer Steven Meiselcaptured all of the dancing action for the campaign.

Tom Ford

The man can do no wrong. High contrast images with sexual understones are pretty much always a win.Jon Kortajarenais complimented with the stunningCandice Swanepoel, who’s red lips look like they could eat him up. Ford’s campaign was shot byMert AlasandMarcus Piggott.

Going off into the wilderness proved to be a step in the right direction for the brand. Their mixed media images encompassed wildlife, and the current collection made for a foxy combination. What got our attention even more was the video they released alongside the ad campaign– all very trippy. The campaign was photographed byTim Walkerand featured modelsTatiana CotliarandJulia Saner.

Alexander McQueen

Superhero powers and haute fashions combine to make this stellar ad campaign which feels out of this world! The current face of McQueen,Raquel Zimmermannis literally exploding in the dark & stormy shots. Captured byDavid Sims, the images and ads actually lived up to their viral hype thanks to digital artistAaron Parsons.

Miu Miu

Young and petite actress Haliee Steinfeld revealed her “True (modeling) Grit” for this campaign. The actress proved she can be high fashion, while still remaining age appropriate by eating pizza and lounging with glittered heels. With a captivating range of emotion this campaign shot byBruce Weberis one for the history books.

Jimmy Choo

Sex sells (something we all know), but Choo does it in moderation while keeping it’s well-heeled class. The shoe brand promotes their bags and footwear in a campaignfull of sexual undertoneswithout showing too much skin. Instead, it’s all about the leg, err, rather foot in this case. ModelsRaquel ZimmermannandBen Hillput on a show for photogSteven Meisel.
