Kate Moss gets touched up for Ferragamo Autumn 2012 campaign
Hello Kate Moss... is that really you? It seems our favourite British supermodel has undergone some major airbrushing for the latest Autumn 2012 campaign for Salvatore Ferragamo. Kate is almost unrecognisable and so much younger in these ads which are inspired by Russian Czarist fairy tales.
Photographed by Mikael Jansson, it is clear that Kate's images have had some serious Photoshop work done to them, shaving years of her age. This aside, the ads are quite vibrant in a romantic military way. Captured at the Russian embassy in Berlin, Kate poses in flowing Ferragamo gowns on ornate furniture and in rooms decorated in traditional tapestries. She is joined by fellow models Karmen Pedaru and Sean O'Pry lounging on leather couches and wearing serious expressions.
The campaign is a reflection of the vision by Ferragamo creative director Massimiliano Giornetti. While I'm all for the dark mysteriousness of these Russian-inspired ads, a little less re-touching really wouldn't go astray. The ads are due to break worldwide in September.
What do you think? Do you believe Ferragamo have gone too far in airbrushing Kate Moss for their Autumn/Winter 2012 campaign?
