Kelly Osbourne to Front Madonna's Material Girl Campaign

kelly_osbourne_material_girl_madonna.jpg

Kelly Osbourne, who looks like a completely different and way hotter version of herself, is fronting a new Spring 2011 campaign for Madonna's Material Girl line sold at Macy's. Osbourne follows Taylor Momsen who also fronted the brand in a campaign last year.

The line of clothing and campaign, shot by Brook Nipar, is said to hearken back to Madonna's East Village roots and does, indeed, mimic some of that Material Girl/Cyndi Lauper 1980's vibe.

The campaign will debut in April issues of fashion and lifestyle magazines such as Seventeen, Teen Vogue and Cosmopolitan as well as outdoor, cinema, in-store at Macy's and online.

Silly, Hipsteresque Kindle Ad Thinks People Read While Running

kindle_coffee_shop.jpg

Yea, we all do this, right? We grab our Kindle and decided to read a book while running around the city and hanging out with our friends. AdFreak's David Gianatasio aptly describes the people in this ad ad, "refugees from a sitcom so vapid, even Fox wouldn't put it on the air."

And he's right. The over-the-top silliness distracts from the positive attributes of the product. Yea, it's glare-free. Yea, it's light. Yea, it's battery lasts forever. But does anyone want to run out and buy one of these so they can look like the annoying primadonnas in this ad?

We'll stick with our iPad and a glare-reducing screen protector thank you very much. And we simply must disagree with David one point. While the characters in this ad don't hold a candle to the hotness of the bikini-clad woman in the poolside Kindle ad, you've got to admit the woman sitting at the coffee table in this ad is exponentially cute.
