Bryan Adams we must talk
So I was going to write a very long diatribe about the new Guess Campaign with the supposed Sophia Loren look alike and it's pathetically wane and rote post modern approbation of famous curvaceously glorious Italian sex symbols as re-imagined by Madison Avenue anorexics in bad padded bras and jagged clavicles who are not Italian but I figured these photos would speak volumes instead.
But still, can't these fashion ad people use their very thin tall narrow women to imitate other famous very thin tall narrow women of Hollywood or model days gone by? Why not shoot a tribute to Versuchka ala "BlowUp" or Sigourney Weaver in "Alien?" Why do you take aim at famous actresses who are mega stacked, nice wide hips and fully hourglass and have them portrayed by very small breasted woman with boy hips? Isn't that whom you DON'T design and shoot ads for?
Bryan Adams, singer of 'Cuts Like A Knife', 'In Heaven' (Mr. Pregnant does the definitive version) and many hits I love etc is also truly great photographer but this shoot in no way replicates 1950's sexual bombshell Italian Sophia Loren. For starters the model should be ITALIAN and she can't be built like pipe cleaner (there is one shot in jeans-Sophia rarely wore jeans-where the model Line Gost looks 100% prepubescent-see above.) All those idiot sales people at Guess stores : "Like our new line is based on the Sophia Loren look we have like a model that looks just like her..."
Dear Bryan, please contact Maria Cucinotti Grazia or Somaya Reece next time-THOSE are models built like Sophia Loren, Line Gost bares only scant resemblance and it's a very flat one.
WATCH THE REAL SOPHIA NOT THE COAT HANGER PLEASE
