We don’t know quite how to say this, but Stella McCartney’s spring/summer 2012 advert kind of reminds us of the ever popular Where’s Wally? puzzles (or for our Stateside readers, Where’s Waldo?), and would very much like someone else to see where we are coming from so we don’t sound completely crazy.
We aren’t saying the gorgeous Natalia Vodianova is channeling an adolescent boy with large round spectacles and a distinctive stripey red shirt, but we do think it could be a little tricky to spot the model amongst all that floral.
On the contrary, her black and white picture being cut and pasted onto a bright and very colourful floral backdrop does actually stand out – and if we’re being honest, there’s something about Natalia that still manages to catch our eye and keep our attention on her as opposed to the background.
We think Tyra Banks and Elle Macpherson should make the girls try this on America’s Next Top Model and Britain’s Next Top Model respectively – if they can stand out amongst a sea of floral, they’ve definitely got what it takes to go all the way in the competition!
