Strike a Pose*


.....The ever-changing Madonna is back yet again posing for Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter ad campaign. Photographed by Steven Meisel & super talented 'photo-shoppersss...' Oooh...YES, highly photo-shopped indeed...just take a look at her porcelain-wrinkle-free-flawless face...
~What do you think? ~XOXO*

They are so extremely photoshopped that I kind of like them...she looks like a doll. I think it's a bit ridiculous though, she's beautiful as she is! kisses darling! XO

Jan said...

THE most over the top photoshopping I've ever seen - Madge is barely recognisable !

I don't think she ever looked like this! She's a whole new person (in ever-changing fashion).
I wonder if this will spark a whole new level of PSing acceptance. What seems ridiculous now may one day be seen in retrospect as revolutionary.

PS -- I'll be chuckling to myself all day about your handgun wielding chimp... "c...l...i...c...k"
OK, I've left a comment, already!

she looks like a mannequin, but it's a nicely done campaign.

M said...

She's wearing the bunny ears again!!! :0 Those things she wore to the MET gala fashion thingy where she looked like the love child of Marie Antoinette and the Easter Bunny.
But LOVE the extreme photoshopped pictures.

I love these pictures and was staring at one of them on the back cover of one of my magazines last night. I love the bunny ears, the fake porcelain skin, the lighting, her outfit, the color of her lipstick. I am a huge Madonna fan and a huge Louis V. fan. Its just art and she always changes, she fascinates me.

jen said...

Very whimsical and surreal! I like it.

Frau said...

She looks beautiful...I love LV!

WendyB said...

All I know is I like the bag in the first ad!

Sal said...

She looks so serene in these images. Such a nice change of pace from her normal ferocious face!

But it seems weird to photoshop her so much :/

Teri said...

I wish there was a Photoshop filter that I could wear in real life. I would look that awesome, too.

Diana said...

It doesn't make me want to buy it but I can see where they are trying to go with it. I personally like the ones with the Coppolla family :)

dapper kid said...

Haha the photoshoppers may have taken it a *tad* far. I actually really like them if I forget for a moment that it's Madonna.

Ela said...

I think they shaved a good 15-20 years off...poses are a little lifeless but beautiful nonetheless.

Couture Carrie said...

Madge looks fabulous but I would have chosen someone a bit "hipper" for this campaign... The bags are exquisite!

Kristin said...

For some reason I'm not that into LV but that first bag is gorgeous!!

I know it's high couture to do photographs this way but it becomes more of digital art instead of photography I think.

I miss the 80's madonna! LOL

poet said...

Madonna is as old as my mom. And me, being in my early 20s, I am already getting my first wrinkles if I stay out in the sun too long... Kinda scary what photoshop can do. But the pictures are beautiful indeed. In a lifeless porcelain doll kind of way. :)

Greetings,

In regards to your comment on LouDuk:

I could not agree more!

Thanks for stopping by!

Anthony said...

These pics are NICE! Very pleasing to the eye. But, then, I would've even loved them WITHOUT the Photo Shop magic!

Madonna is one of my all-time faves, and I think she has a wonderful natural beauty about her face. Of course, I think the one thing that makes her the most attractive is her confidence!
She has that in spades! And there will never be a need to Photo Shop over THAT...

Simply Mel said...

Stunning photos! Madonna is a rare beauty and talent, and I love that she continues to steal the limelight!

Anonymous said...

I think she is VERY inspiring! she has survived this hard&tough business for such a long time... everything printed out there is thanks to photoshop magic...

drollgirl said...

she might as well be made of wax. fakery at its best! i wish this dude would photograph ME!

Gabby said...

I need all my pictures photoshopped like that from now on! :) The colors are beautiful though!

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Meisel always had a knack for photographing her to the absolute best advantage. She still looks great in his photographic eye!

Clorivak said...

I too adore the colors, but She makes me YAWN. I'm bored to tears with her and I wish she would just go away for a few years or something. bahaha. Photoshop is insane...the possibilities...I must learn.

Anna G said...

She looks so cold. I love her music but lately she's been getting on my nerves. But I love those bags by LV. I really would love one. :)

Winnie said...

Wow, airbrushed to the max by the looks of it!

Hunters Glory said...

One of all time fav Madonna song.

i wish she would age already, ya know?!

noble beeyotch said...

Madge and LV are perfect for each other. They have made her look so young and pretty.

Carlene said...

I think the ads are kind of beautiful. At least they're not trying to sell us skincare with 'em.

Awesome Sara said...

photojoy said...
