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

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..
