New, sort of, agency in Chicago.. Jane Stewart who headed Elite for 28 years opens Factor Women.

    she looks amazing but i dont get why using Klein for a concept that s been done by Meisel 20 years ago alredy for the lebel..klein doesnt convoi the same glamourus sex appeal

  2. Samira says:

    Wow, that’s a big surprise for me. Madonna in that campaign, well would have wished a new face for that …

  3. sohokyo says:

    I love her

  4. Erwin says:

    Looks like D&G is going for old people this season. Look at the ad, it would have been so much better if they use Abbey Lee or Freja Erichsen. Consider Kate Moss next time if you want to go for ‘older’ target audience.

  6. AJP says:

    Ew Madonna is disgusting. Why does she keep getting booked for these ads? Those photos look nice but she doesn’t actually look like that anymore…

  7. lasher says:

    not a good move…after 2 seasons of LV!!!pics are not exiting too…..

  8. lasher says:

    trumancapote,u are so right!

  9. michael says:

    She looks amazing! Love the whole Italian cinema vibe they were going for…..can’t wait to see the rest of the images.

    Thank god D&G is using “old people” in their ads, since they actually are the ones who can afford to buy their clothes.

    All hail the PSD Queen of Adobe!

  11. SHIRAZ says:

    Steven Meisel did this already! He should have been hired to shoot this campaign…he would have at least made it much more sexier!!! All that retouching spoils the look. I like them returning to their roots, but this we have seen before, even all that prop styling! DONE!

    No like the campain look Dolce 2000 with Gisele by Meisel

  13. GP says:

    I love Madonna but don’t see the Wow here…could do better.

  14. LauraMars says:

    I wish she could realize getting older is beautiful…pictures are great but I feel sad she changed her face this way

  15. Alisa says:

    Hey everyone- don’t forget there’s a model search going on at I don’t know what exactly votes count for, but you should, anyway!

  16. Neo says:

    I dont agree with all the hate but she certainly was not left to look like herself. After so much re touching it appears as though they recreated her face and turned her into Debby harry rather than leaving her as herself.

  17. mark says:

    eek, not good. Not good at all.

  18. ritz says:

    @Neo: Do you really expect D&G to put a wrinkled old woman on their ad without retouching it?

  19. lasher says:

    more i look at the pics more i hate them….

  20. Ghot says:

    fashion is about fantasy, and Madonna WAS a fantasy. This ad makes D&G less edgy.

  21. Olga says:

    Right, Madonna doesn’t look like her. She has been “plumped” up by photoshop

  22. Jovi Monreve says:

    she looks like emmanuelle beart in this photo

  23. carola says:

    Huh.. Madonna is looking better than ever, she looked like shit for the last few years, and I don’t mean she looked like shit because of her age or anything, she just looked like she didn’t care about her appearance (those arms..). Now she looks all sexy and womanly, and I saw some other candid pics of her the other day and she looked good too so it’s not Photoshop here (it does help that Klein is the photographer, he makes everyone look good).

  24. carola says:

    Oh, and after those horrible LV ads I would’ve never thought I’d like seeing Madonna in my magazines again.

  25. Peter says:

    Has she become Sophie Dahl?

  26. Peter says:

    The more I look at this picture the more it becomes year 2010 with all the nostalgia that comes along with it. I enjoy looking at this advertising

  27. JLM says:

    Darling Madonna,
    we don’t need to see that much cleavage for your age…
    but we idolize you anyhow.
    I don’t think it’s a good shot of her.

  28. Shoukat Ali Jamali says:

    At this stage still Madona is sexy, beautiful and youg looking among young girls.My uncountable kisses and love for her.
