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?

As a 65th birthday hinges on the horizon, I try to keep young-at-heart and of course keep a youthful look therefore, Madonna is one of my favorites and the perfect pick for Louis Vuitton’s advertisement. I admire her for her grit and determination to make her own statement regardless of what the critics say. She certainly exudes my feelings as a woman: totally exciting, mysterious, sexy and cat-like.

LV made a great choice. Madonna is a fashion, business and music icon. At 50 and single, she still is doin her thang! I applaud Her!!!

Well, Jan, you have single-handedly offended a number of folks on the board. There is more than one boomer (including myself) that is educated, intelligent and able to afford LV merchandise.

I feel Madonna is a very poor choice in the sense that She had a child out of wedlock with her trainer, with whom she had no intention of having a lasting relationship with (so basically, he was a sperm donor), had another child with another man before she married him and now has possibly been named as a factor in the breakup of another man’s marriage. If my husband buys me anything from LV for Christmas, trust me I will be returning it.

Many, many years ago, right after Madonna’s first single came out, someone from Rolling Stone remarked in an interview that if there was ever anyone that would sleep around to further their career, it was Madonna, based on his meeting with her. She may not need to sleep around anymore to get ahead, but she obviously is not a pillar of good taste and class. My sister is 3 years older than Madonna and she makes Madonna look like an over-exercised, anorexic hag.

what is ‘acting your age’???? what is ‘expression’? what is ‘sexuality’? madonna tackles all of these through her music and her fashion.

she’s amazing… everybody else is soooo boring and safe. madonna challenges society and its norms…. she is, without a doubt – one of the most controversial and stimulating icons this world has ever seen.

anyone who disagrees is obviously too ignorant… or too young to know what they are talking about…

Ines why are you pretending to speak french? Did you use a quick translator online, just to pretend that french people hate Madonna? You should get a passport first, then travel and MAYBE then, try to have an opinion on people that actually accomplished something in their lives like Madonna, including mistakes…Get a life!

Brad Pitt is so insensitive with Jennifer Aniston. He should tell Angelina Jolie to ‘shut up’; because Angelina felt so proud of stealing Brad from Jennifer. She should be the one to shut up and be happy that she got the man she loves (I guess).

Like I said before Angelina looks like the Joker to me because of her big mouth. She is sooooooooo ugly.

And for me, Angelina does not love Shiloh.
Brad should open his eyes.
