Carolyn Murphy Returns for a Second Time in a Row for MaxMara’s Campaign (Forum Buzz)

She’s back! Carolyn Murphy returns as the face of MaxMara’s new collection. Having previously posed for Mario Sorrenti for the brand’s Fall 2014 campaign, the team behind the shoot decided to switch the concept up this time around and sat Carolyn amongst a sea of prints — which oddly enough complement the clothes perfectly. Giving us a slight 70s vibe, the Estée Lauder beauty queen poses for a range of shots which can all be found inside our thread.

The background doesn’t appear to be sitting well with the majority of our forum members, however. Nymphaea writes, “The spots are driving me crazy!” 

“I like that they’re using props instead of a plain background but everything is so busy, I don´t know where to look… too messy for me,” agrees kokobombon.

“I’m glad to see Carolyn as I love her but God the background is just too busy!!” replies VersaceVixen09.

Ash92 is just simply left underwhelmed: “I could imagine this being a good idea at the drawing board but they should have seen how messy this is once the images were shot.”

Yet things began to look up as Kite posts, “I really like the use of the spots. It will be very attention grabbing and powerful in print and I think it really stands out amongst many of the duller campaigns we have already seen this season.”

“I agree, have to admit I was expecting to be disappointed by Sorrenti again, but the way they’re using textures here is brilliant,” shares a pleasantly surprised Legolas.
