Madonna's Louis Vuitton Ads: 'Shopped All To Heck

Madonna_photoshoppedI guess it's not terribly surprising that those behind Louis Vuitton's Fall ad campaign featuring Madonna chose to apply photoshop liberally to these images. See why after the jump.

Okay, so I'm no expert or anything, but I think its safe to say that some pretty hardcore work was done on these images. Exhibit A:


(Click image for embiggened version)

A few things:

1. Yes, clearly there's some creative stylizing going on in that image in addition to the cosmetic "perfecting" Photoshop is commonly used for, but it's pretty hard to deny that overall the intent seems to be to conceal all signs of aging and essentially bring back the Madonna of yore, ie:

Oh Material Girl, where hast thou gone?
Oh that's right -- TO THE GYM. FOREVER.


3. That's a PURSE? My purse would laugh at that thing, eat it, and call it a make-up bag.

And now, a solemn moment of silence for the Madonna who at one time stood for independence and balls and shameless sexuality, and didn't make me feel sad or oogie at all:

WHAT IS THAT THING ON HER ARM? It looks like the bone is going to come out.


Yeah, I mean... yeah. It seems to me she's getting more and more delusional about her own youth or lack thereof.


I wouldn't have know that's Madonna. Stylized is an understatement.


Madonna looks like that puppet, Madame (http://www.madameandme.com), now. She could have been such a great example of being sexy and attractive at any age and instead she's a caricature.

I can't even see her anymore without thinking of that picture of her where her arms are all dried out sinewy looking. It wakes me up at night shaking.

Her muscles are trying to defect to a friendlier body. NO MORE MILITANT YOGA!


Oh - I think someone photoshopped the chair too!


I keep asking myself, what is that suppose to be on her head?!


I refuse to believe the picture on the right was actually supposed to be a posed photo. They must have just been testing the light, right? Who sits like that while modeling in a photo shoot?


well, hell. why didn't they just use ME? I'd charge less and they can obviously do just about anything with PhotoShop.

Anyone else care she's wearing bunny ears?


Never would have guessed Madonna from the first photo. I guess getting old means photoshopping shadows into your photo to hide everything.


I just want to wear those damn ears to a meeting at work and yell, "WHAT?!" when people stare at me. Those ears rule.

Snarky Amber

I'm frightened, Auntie Em, I'm frightened!

Suzy Q

What's wrong with you people? Those are CLEARLY designer bunny ears! I mean, I wear mine all the time. Those looks I get from people only serve to confirm my belief that they're all jealous.

I think she should commit the ultimate sexual rebellion: become morbidly obese and grow a mustache. Tap into those "growing olives on the hillside" roots. Oh yeah, wear button up the front black dresses, cover her head with a scarf, wear lace up ortho shoes and stone the village whores. Oh wait...that's Zorba the Greek. Well...Sicily, tooz.

What's weird to me is that I think she thinks she still looks like that.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

Carabee is right! She totally looks like Madame.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

Why do they even need her to model if they are just going to cg her in?
