OK...so this is a fashion post, but I couldn't help myself. I like W. I always have. Yesterday while piled on the sofa sipping coffee and flipping through the latest issue I noticed this ad - for obvious reasons! And, I must say I studied it for quite awhile. However, I paid no attention to the name of the product being adverstised - again for obvious reasons!
Several other ads caught my attention. Joan Rivers doing a knock-off 'what becomes a legend' ad? All I focused on was her face. "Jesus, she's been airbrushed to death," I thought.
Also, This one caused me to pause for a moment. Not because of the model's state of undress, but because I knew she was a drag queen from RuPaul's show. Still, I didn't paid attention to the product or question her as the model, I just thought..."Good for her. She got a job. But, boy did she tuck her junk. That has to hurt!"
W can be alittle out there so I didn't think anything about it. And again, what I find most interesting, especially considering my retail and marketing background was that I paid NO attention to the actual product the ads were representing. Come to find out they are all fake! W placed nine fake advertisements, each shot by the Steven Meisel in the issue. See them all HERE
