these shoes stay on my feet

Can’t really ignore fashion’s shoe fetish—see the popularity of Jak & Jil and Sea of Shoes. And it continues on with the fall 2009 ads featuring Sigrid and Natasha working to sell black pumps for ck Calvin Klein and Gucci respectively. The ads are nothing new really since Craig McDean and Inez & Vinoodh have both shot very similarly composed ads before. McDean for Gucci’s F/W 06/07 ads with Iselin Steiro and Inez & Vinoodh for Chloé F/W 07/08  ad with Anja Rubik. Who wins this round? Sleek Sigrid or glam Gucci-fied Natasha?

    Sleek Sigrid for its touch of Helmut Newton.

    Some of the best shoe ads in fashion history belong to the late French photographer Guy Bourdin who did amazing campaigns in the 70/80s for Charles Jourdan(who’s making a comeback btw).

    I feel shoes are the new bags.Remember how not so long ago we all ranted and raved everytime a new bag came out from LV, Dior or Chanel.Its happening now with shoes.Problem is they can be just as expensive!
