Gerard Darel’s luxe bags are already a favorite with the big screen’s hottest fashionistas like Halle Berry, Eva Longoria and Jessica Alba. And now, WWD reports, the French fashion house is snagging one of Hollywood’s up-and-coming actress to represent the brand. Mamie Gummer, lookalike daughter of iconic actress Meryl Streep, will replace Gallic singer and actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, who has been the label’s face since 2003. As much as we love Charlotte, we can’t wait to see Mamie in action. But we want to know what you think. Tell us, how do you feel about Gerard Darel’s decision to feature an up-and-comer for their campaign?

Mamie Gummer is not that great looking. She’s fronting an ad campaign, really?! It must be nice to be Meryl Streep’s daughter. . .

She’s kind of unfortunate looking. Then again, that’s not a very flattering pose to begin with (her nose is accentuated too much).

Personally I think she will make a wonderful model for the line; she doesn’t have the typical model look which is what I think is cool about the choice.


I loved Charlotte in Darel’s adds and I think Mamie Gummer is going to be great too. It’s a great choice, she looks different from the girls we are used to see and she has a beautiful smile!
cool choice!

Mamie is not a classic Hollywood beauty. I assume that she represents a new marketing strategy. After all, Halle, Eva and Jessica are over-exposed.

This is the only picture I’ve seen of her, but she looks prematurely old. I would guess at least mid-40s but I’m guessing they wouldn’t have hired her if she is really that age.

I think Mamie will be great at representing the campaign. She seems to be a kind, caring, and warm person. what a great role model she will be!
