This ad just proved something, to me at least. For a campaign to immediately hit you in that woah-should-I-be-looking-at-this-at-work kind of way that might make you blush if someone was standing over your shoulder (because, frankly, it’s just a little too hot), it doesn’t necessarily need to have Terry Richardson’s smut-tastic hallmarks all over it. Somehow Donna Karan’s fall 2013 campaign starring Catherine McNeil feels impassioned in that good old-fashioned romance novel kind of way. There’s some emotion going on there, and hey – I kind of like it.
What do you think? Andres Velencoso plays the obligatory gruffly-sexy male lead, in the Mikael Jansson photographed campaign.
