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?

After hearing about her appearance in the new ads, I was a little skeptical (not for her age, age is just a number; it’s her masculine figure lately). But i’m surprised and rather impressed, she definitely knows how to pull off the clothes she wears and maintain a classy, feminine appearance. Good job, photographers, good job Madonna!

Madonna-What’s a nice Italian girl like you doing causing controversy all the time?…aren’t you a little tired amica?…The pics look tragic-poor thing at least she is mostly covered up…she is losing the terger in her skin and looks sinewy….try to start looking soft and feminine at your age Madge, put on a little weight and tone done the muscles; I do like the face enhancements…it is more becoming…Perhaps the next 50 you can be more ladylike….what a concept! Ciao

Just the fact that two tiny pictures from the LV ad campaign featuring – yes, Madonna – has generated over 20 pages worth of comments on this site alone from readers (haters or not)…says, LV has made the absolute right choice in their new model. Love her or hate her, everyone always has a reaction to Madonna. And if you start associating LV with Madonna’s image…guess what? LV is laughing all the way to the bank. So is Madonna, in fact. And NOBODY cares what the haters think of Madonna’s age, her talent, music, looks, etc. Neither does LV.

So get over it. Or knock yourself out hating Madonna or being catty on this page, because no one cares what you think.

Madonna is an icon, a legend, and a successful and powerful woman in a vicious industry. Eat your hearts out. Or keep posting hateful messages. At least you’re making me laugh at how jealous you sound.

Madonna ROCKS!!! She’s amazing, talented, outspoken, and will make millions for that company just by appearing in their ads.

I don’t expect everyone to like her music but you guys are crazy if you don’t think she looks good for her age. I could only hope I look as good as her in 15 years. For those of you who think she doesn’t look good, do you eat as healthy as she does and take care of your body? She may have been very rebellious in her younger years but that is not a reason to judge. Obviously she still has it or she wouldn’t be selling out at concerts. Millions still love her.

If I posed like that, my 12 year old, who is the same age as Lola would KILL ME! I wish she would just continue with her children’s books & come back when she’s 60. She needs to raise her children.

OMG silly [old] cow why don’t she keep her old wrinkly self covered up, we don’t want to see old flesh splashed al over the magazine.
It’s time you realised your age and retired from photo shoots where the goods obviously need air brushing just to make you look like you a woman and not a man wearing a dress.
