Guinevere van Seenus is modeling Miu Miu for the brand’s Resort 2012 print ad campaign. David Sims photographed Guinevere who was styled by Joe McKenna and had her hair done by Guido Palau. I’m a fan because I tend to like Miu Miu and have grown to love Guinevere and her unconventional look over the years, but reactions among forum members were mixed.
“Joe McKenna is one of my favorite stylists but I'm not feeling this,” wrote Unkownpleasures.
Tarsha posted: “I don't like it … but it's typical Sims, so it's not surprising.”
Melly5525 was on the other side of the spectrum. “So happy to see Guinevere and love the whole outfit and the accessories,” she wrote. “Such a classic Miu Miu look.”
Mackos was also a fan. “It looks fantastic from head to toe,” he commented. “The red background works so well with the dress, the hair and makeup are brilliant and Guinevere is simply stunning. I knew David Sims would be a very good choice, et voilà.”
I’m usually loathe to judge an entire campaign based on one shot, but as I mentioned before, I’m a little biased when it comes to Miu Miu and Guinevere (even her name sounds old and romantic – how appropriate). I’m curious to see more.
