For weeks, rumors have been swirling that Madonna would be gracing Louis Vuitton’s new ad campaign. The French fashion house has remained mum — until now. Her Madgesty will indeed appear in the Spring/Summer ’09 ad campaign that will hit magazines in February 2009. The star is shot by legendary photographer Steven Meisel (who infamously collaborated with Madonna on her Sex book) in a sultry French cafe setting. When it came to choosing the new face, designer Marc Jacobs wouldn’t have it any other way. “I wanted the campaign to be very bold, very sensual and very atmospheric. To carry off all these references and all its sophistication, we needed the ultimate performer — and for me, that is Madonna,” says Jacobs. We couldn’t agree more. Tell us: What do you think of Madonna’s Louis Vuitton ads? Do you think she was the best choice?

Ew. She is not attractive, her music sucks and she is so old. Please Madonna, retire your tights. No one wants to see you half naked, anymore.

Kate on

I’m sorry. She’s ugly.

Unfortunately, Madonna will be turning me away from LV products. Is that a hole in her hosiery above the back of her right heel in the bottom picture??

Cori on

I think she looks fierce!!! I hope I look half as good when I am her age. P.S. LOoooooove the handbag.

Violet on

I just think she is too skinny! She looks anorexic in the second one. However, I still think she is an amazing performer and an excellent choice for a brand like Louis V

Szabina on

Sarah! She can still pull this look off so get over it!

SLH on

Of course, she should be their new face. Jacobs and Vuitton are classic high style and so is she.

Sure, we want to hate her, her unaplogetic bad behavior, etc., but you can’t deny her style. She’s an original.

Madonna is a fabulous woman in her 50’s. She doesn’t look it. Madonna keeps herself in amazing shape. I would like to be in half the shape she is! I feel that Madonna is an inspiration for anyone who is baby-boomer age. Obviously this other posting is from someone who doesn’t have the remotest idea of what an older woman as accomplished and yes, ATTRACTIVE can bring to Louis Vuitton. We baby boomers (or any person with class and taste) are the targets who can afford Louis, she can’t.

I think Madonna looks great in the ad. She is the perfect pick. She is always interesting to look at, she knows exactly how to pose and use her body and now that she’s gotten older I’m more intrigued by her mysterious yet flamboyant posture. I love the fact that we are seeing her out and about more. We always want a little piece of the material girl.

Oh, and anyone who thinks otherwise are just haters. I notice that everyone who comments on this blog has a problem with everything.

No one is perfect, let’s see you do it better.


I happen to know this person is the one of the brightest, most creative people in the music world. She is NOT old.. her music does NOT suck, and you apparently have no taste. Regardless, I doubt if you saw all of the things this woman has done– as I believe you may be in your teens/20s.. am I right?
