Dancing With Prada



The behind-the-scenes images from the Prada women's ad campaign have come to surface and the party begins. The clip gives us an insight of the behind-the-scenes preparations (bitch work) and depicts the less celebrated, unnoticed efforts that goes into shooting for a major brand. The Audition, which comes at the commencement of the video features models Mariacarla Boscono (my girl), Tatiana Cotiliar (which stars in Proenza Schouler first ever campaign), Arizone Muse (opened and closed Prada's show, enough said), and newcomers Zuzana Bijoch and Kinga Rajzak, channeling Josephine Baker. The video continues on, we see tables sprawled with all kinds of Prada goodies (Rachel Zoe-esque settings) including: Mary Janes with intricate weaving in any imaginable color combination, tiny leather bracelets, sorts of shades, and bags galore. In other words, it's a Prada paradise, which is where you wanna be. 

The video editing leaves me baffled. I'm still trying to figure out if the models were dancing, being exorcized, suffering from a seizure, or trying to appear sexy. Regardless, at the end of the day, they're getting pay to sell those deep dyed and striped fur stoles, curlicues and sombreros (Laurieann Gibson, they should've call you). 

Last but not least. Steven Meisel is a God

(Unfortunately, the original video I saw contained footage of the men's ad, but now I can't seem to find it because Youtube is being a jerk. Oh well). 

Gurl, I think you missed your call for The Last Exorcist.
