VVV

Catherine McNeil's got it all- V's fall fashion preview cover, opener for the Givenchy show and now a 6 month contract with Mario Testino. I like her in the way that she is unintentionally kicking those E.T. lookalike, cutesy Gemmas and Lilys to the curb. She looks like she could put out a cigarette on Gemma's thigh or something. Very cool. Me thinks this 18 year old Aussie stunner will become a supermodel in due time.

On another note, Gisele replaces Elson in the YSL campaigns, and in my opinion, Catherine would be a much better fit than the former Victoria's Secret Angel. Yaaaaaa.

Didn't Gisele leave because of outrageous wage demands?
I was never sure about Karen Elson in the YSL ads, but I don't think Gisele is right for them either, she's too much of a Glamazon type.

wow, she's literally all over the place right now! i didn't like like look so much at first, but she grew on me- i think she's stunning and she resembles han a bit. love her look- she's looks very stunning in the V48 shoot. as for gisele, you can barely see her face in that ad! i liked karen elson for ysl, but mariacarla would be much more better!

She's veritable hot.

But you know, I kinda dislike the Giselle choice for YSL. And I mean, I like Giselle.

I agree with you. Gisele fits with "sexy" labels like D&G or Roberto Cavalli. But not with YSL.

whattt?

Gisele is replacing Karen?

Why!?

To me these days Gisele just seems very cheap and barbie like. Its the Victorias Secret link, no doubt.

But Karen is perfect and those adverts are fantastic.

Silly silly YSL, their ads are going to go all Cavalli on us. ughhh.

Someone give their marketing team s big slap?...

S xx

PS, Sorry Catherine for ignoring you, you're pretty cool and I'd love to see the moment you stub out a fag on Gemma. Though Lily deserves it more?

Catherine would make a much better YSL girl. Gisele is.. well, frankly, too cheerful.

We all know that once them model types are being lauded by Testino, the rest of the fashion world is in tow.

Re: Paris probably has some repressed secret lesbian fantasy concerning Nicole Ritchie, so dropping the soap would result in a dream come true.

Catherine is gorgeous , can't wait to see the new V magazine !!!!!
And I don't think Gisele will be great for ysl .

She's really sexual and aggressive. In a good way.

I love Karen Elson for YSL, the ads were so intense...the ones with Gisele not so much.
