Fall Fashion Lyrical: BAD (and perfectly good at it)

Image courtesy of Armani

I bet it took you a minute to recognize her, huh? Yeah I know, they could've just hired a regular model for this, cuz this good girl gone bad looks nothin' like herself. Especially since this is not the look she's currently rockin'. For some reason I feel like this picture is dated. It would have been a better fit for her Rated R-era. But the picture is hot, I won't lie. Armani Jeans is known for putting out questionable ads though... (or in the case of Solange Knowles, not putting out the ads at all. Remember when they first launched their Beyoncé assisted perfume Diamonds? Well, they made Sol-angel the face of Armani Jeans, but I never saw those ads or anything. hmm...)

I mean how awkward is this picture of Rafael Nadal shot by Steven Klein? I had to look at this awful ad for at least half a year, because it was on a HUUUUUGE billboard @Schiphol International Airport (which is where I get the bus to go home). Hahahah I don't know, but if you ask me, there's something iffy about that pose... Maybe if it didn't look like he's trying to seduce someone, while laying like that it would've been fine. Or maybe if he was laying down on that bench with his torso as well, in stead of pushin' himself up or sum', then it would've been nonchalant... I don't know man! What I do know is that that is the wrong picture, the wrong pose, and the wrong connotation to be selling jeans to guys. At least Beckham and Ronaldo made me wanna run to the gym, start working out ASAP and then buy EA underwear, because even though you know that it's not true, for some reason you believe that you'll look half as good as them in those briefs.


This is one of three images that have now taken Nadal's place. It's the new campaign for Emporio Armani, shot by Mario Sorrenti. THESE PICTURES IS SUPERB! I have something with light, and I think the light in these pieces of fashion art is just stunning! So beautiful. Like, these shots are just perfection. They give me that "Haute Swagg" feeling. I don't know about you, but I'm ready to deck myself out in Armani.

Armani Jeans should take notes from Emporio Armani. Or even from Armani Exchange. Those shots are always blazin'. Fast action shots, the guy is always super cool and he's got this hot girl with him. That's what you should be doing to sell to guys. Make me believe that I will be just as cool as that model if I buy your clothes. Guys don't grow up, who told you that? When we were little, the coolest guys around were Superman and Spiderman, so that's who we wanted to be. Now, we just want money, hot girls and a jet set life, so deep down inside we just wanna be like those male models (even though no one would really admit to it). Yes, men are vain to. As if you didn't know..

Love, R.

    years that his riches and protection came from this court.so i told him to let me be into the court but it not an easy task to be a member but i was finally initiated into the devil church of the Illuminati and i was confirm in there church. after a month of being a member of Illuminati i got promotion that same month in my working

  4. HOW I BECOME A BONA-FIDE MEMBER OF THE GREAT ILLUMINATI:
    I am a very happy person today because i am now a full and bona-fide member of the great ILLUMINATI. I want to quickly Say a big thanks to Brother James Watt the agent of the brotherhood who introduced me to becoming a member of the great Brotherhood brothers and sisters here is my story. I was told by a friend that to become a member of the brotherhood is Very difficult, so i was thinking that i can never get the right link to join because i was scammed by three people whom i meant on the Internet and they promised to help me join but they never did. They collected my money and i was never initiated into the brotherhood. Until i was introduced to Brother James Watt and he told me the truth that those in USA Don’t pay any money from their pocket to become a member of the Illuminati, and i am an American. so i was very Interested i called the temple messenger number i was given it was +1(617)663-8926 when i called, the temple messenger Told me what i need to do, i did it and i was initiated i did not pay a dine from my money to become a member. But i was told that those living outside USA will have to pay some kind of money for the purchase of their initiation materials. But those living within the square of USA don't pay a dine. I followed all instructions and after my initiation, I was given all the benefit of becoming a member. As i talk to you am very okay and my future have been settled. I am well protected and i am wealthy and famous. Please if you wish to become a member of the great Illuminati contact Agent Brother James Watt on the Devil Church, (illuminatikingdom56@gmail.com) or those in the USA can call or text directly the Temple messenger on +1(617)663-8926. Those in other countries outside the USA can contact the international agent on call Or WhatsApp +2348166739726. And generally anyone who wishes to become a real member can send email to (illuminatikingdom56@gmail.com) Become a member today and enjoy the benefit of life.
