Kim Basinger in the Prada

Sunday, December 4th, 2005
By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, the Miuccia she has hired the Kim Basinger to be the new face of the Prada!

Academy award-winning actress Kim Basinger has been enlisted by Italian fashion designer Muiccia Prada to model her new spring/summer Mui Mui collection.

Basinger, 51, who was a successful model before turning to acting, is the latest middle-aged female star to be chosen by highly acclaimed fashion houses, including Madonna, 47, and Demi Moore, 42, who both starred in recent Versace campaigns.

A source tells British newspaper The Daily Telegraph: “Basinger’s just finished shooting the spring/summer 2006 Miu Miu campaign in Paris.

“Muccia chose Basinger for the intellectual sensuality she has, which is quite unique.

“She was also a cover girl before she became an actress, so she’s no stranger to modelling.”

This it makes the perfect sense to the Manolo. The Kim Basinger she is beautiful in the way that only mature beautiful women can be. And the Miuccia she knows that her market it is not the skinny teenyboppers who are most frequently the fasion models, but the mature, fully-grown women who have the money to afford the intellectual luxury of her clothing.

The Manolo can do nothing but applaud this development.

Prada Ad 1997Prada Ad 1997

Manolo says, here you see two ads from the Prada from the Fall/Winter men’s collection of the 1997. These they feature the actor Norman Reedus.

Again, we see in the bottom picture that the Prada men’s wear it has this timeless quality that allows it to seem fresh, even eight of the years later. But this, the timelessness, it is the quality shared by the best of any sort of the fashion.

More Prada Ads 2005

Manolo says, here are two more of the Prada ads from the genius Steven Meisel.

For some of the reason, the style issue of the New Yorker, from the last week, it was terribly late in the mail, which it is too bad, because on the inside of the cover, right after the bad Banana Repubic ads, there are two more ads from this same series.

The Manolo he will try to find the pictures of these ads to show you here, as they, like these one, are most beautiful.

Prada the Movie

Sunday, February 20th, 2005
By Manolo

Manolo says, the famous movie director Ridley Scott he has directed the four-and-a-half minute commercial for the Prada.

Last week, the four-and-a-half-minute ”Thunder Perfect Mind” made its debut at the Berlin Film Festival. Directed by Ridley Scott, ”Thunder Perfect Mind” is part of a burgeoning genre of cinema — the superlong commercial as short film, in this case created for the introduction of the new Prada fragrance.

Maybe you have already seen Dolce & Gabbana’s melodramatic fragrance ad for Sicily featuring Monica Bellucci, or the TV spots of Baz Luhrmann’s mini-epic for Chanel No. 5 starring Nicole Kidman as an actress whose similarity to the actress Nicole Kidman plays in ”Moulin Rouge” is just too weird. The Prada film, which strives to be simultaneously more and less commercial, casts the model Daria Werbowy as a beautifully accessorized bundle of contradictions. As she makes her way through the streets of Berlin, she sees herself coming and going at every turn in the faces of other women, some older, some quite a bit younger, some more wholesome and some actually Werbowy herself. In a particularly delicious moment, shot in the back of a taxi, an unseen driver ogles her in the rearview mirror, watching as she removes her winter coat only to put it back on inside out. ”I was told, basically, to sit down and drink a cup of tea,” says Scott, who collaborated — or contended — with both his daughter, Jordan, a promising director in her own right, and Miuccia Prada. ”This project is a testament to women in all forms.”

Manolo says, the Manolo he is desperate to see this commercial.

Tim Roth Prada

Manolo says, here are the Prada ads from the 1996 featuring the Tim Roth.

See, this it is the example of how the Miuccia she designs the clothes that have the feeling of the timeless classic. These clothes, from nearly the decade ago, they still feel fresh and stylish. This it is why the high cost for the Prada clothes it is justified.
