A Leg Up!

August 25th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (33)

The feminine 50s trend strikes again, this time in the pages of Vogue Nippon with a cheeky editorial by Sølve Sundsbø. In the story Ana Beatriz Barros and Alessandra Ambrosio fall head over heels for luxurious ensembles by Vuitton and Cacherel, all chosen by superstylist Katie Grand. While Ale and Ana look fit for an episode of Mad Men, Solve adds in a touch of whimsy by shooting the girls upside down and lounging like true retro pinups – the look is sexy, coy and just a little demure.

    This a bit too much like the Louis Vuitton ad a few seasons back for me. (The one with all the supermodels on the car). They still look great. though.

    I always see Alessandra as being a bit too posed for my taste. She’s gorgeous, but slightly stiff for me.

  3. Marcus says:

    Similar pose, different vibe! Love it!

  4. Ricardo says:

    Both gorgeous and unique

    Brazilians Rocks!!!

    I was about to say the same thing, Josh. It’s very much like Vuitton Spring ’08. It’s beautiful nonetheless. I especially love Ana Beatriz – she looks stellar.

    The models’ hairs look luxurious.

  8. sam says:

    i think ppl are really diggin the classic women again, i think beautiful look is coming back!

  9. carola says:

    It’s all about Ana Beatriz!!! All of this should translate into a beauty contract for her, I mean wow..

  10. Chris says:

    The first and last pics are my fave, maybe cos they’re not looking at the camera. I don’t think Ale’s legs are the best choice for this ed.

    I love the brazilian models! Not just because I’m brazilian too, but also because they are very sexy. The 50’s atmosphere is so awesome I’m loving it

    I love this but i find my head tilting round when i look at every photo.

  14. SiLViO says:

    I agree with Josh, it’s like I need Naomi here as well..

  15. Beate says:

    Awh, that just knocks you over. Great models, great photography. Nice work !

  16. Marty says:

    I just love brazilan offspring 😀

  17. Stefan says:

    It resembles the 08′ Louis Vuitton campaign because much of what they are wearing… and holding, is Louis Vuitton. Classic editorial.

  18. W says:

    Ana B looks stunning here.
    I do agree that the first thing that came up to my mind is the strong reminiscent of LV campaign seasons back.


  19. D. says:

    Ana Beatriz and Alessandra have made an amazing duo since the early 00’s.


  20. Josh says:

    I think brands like Covergirl need to reinstate models in their campaigns and have girls like Ana BB fronting them. She is so amazing. Unfortunately, she is always a bridesmaid never a bride. Somebody give this girl a longterm contract!!!

  21. GP says:

    Sexy women, sexy hair and sexy shoes!!!

  22. JW says:

    What GP said!

  23. Gav says:

    Ditto to Josh

  24. Gav says:

    Ana BB is so beautiful, here she’s working it more than Alessandra.

  25. Didi says:

    MDC I’m glad you already ranked Alessandra, now you’re only missing Ana Beatriz. Please don’t make us wait longer and please rank her as she deserves! <3

  26. hope says:

    re: Sam. I hope the classic look comes back again. There will always be a place for elegant, groomed knockouts.
