Lara Stone's breasts are front and center in the latest campaign from Calvin Klein touting the brand's new Naked Glamour line of lingerie. The new line is said to be "designed to make a woman look even sexier than naked."
Well we always new a scantily-clad woman is far more desirable than a completely naked woman. After all, there's nothing to do with a completely naked woman. She's already got all her clothes off. There's no mystery. There's no anticipation. There's not burning desire to tear what little she has on off so you can...sorry. There we go again. Somehow, we keep forgetting Adrants is supposed to be some kind of business-focused publication about advertising and not a rag filled with the prurient ramblings of some horny male ad slut.
So, back to business. The campaign was created by Baron + Baron and shot by Patrick Demarchelier. Stone has appeared in Calvin Klein campaigns before including ads for Calvin Klein Keans X in which she gets naked, the famed CK One Jeans billboard which some claimed dropped the F-bomb and the Calvin Klein Collection.
So Zappos is out with a new campaign that features nude women going about their day as if doing so completely nude were completely normal. QR codes in the ads lead to a site on which you can clothe these beauties. All well and good. Though we're not sure why anyone would want to put clothes on a hot nude woman if they didn't have to. But that's besides the point.
One Adrants reader thinks the Mullen-created ad campaign is a bit too close in likeness to work from artist Erica Simone. You can take a look at that work here (naked breasts so NSFW) and the Zappos ad here.
A similar comparison is being made between an Erica Simone image of a naked woman riding a motorcycle (semi-SFW) and a Zappos ad featuring a woman on a Vespa.
This sort of thing happens quite often and, in most cases, is pure coincidence. We've reached out to Mullen for comment and they have assured us any similarities are, in fact, purely coincidental.
Perhaps you've heard of the site Who Is That Hot Ad Girl. The site answers that very question and digs deep into ads that feature hot ad girls and informs readers who they are, what they're up to and where else they can be seen. In the past week the site has featured the current Doublemint Twins, Nicole and Natalie Garza, Fancy Feats Cat Food hottie Louise Griffiths, Tostitos stunner Meghan Markle, Dell Inspiron Switchblad Lids beauty Skyler Vallo, UbyKotex goddess Rachelle Wood, Groupon cutie Aleah Whaley, and, of course, the impossibly hot Kate Upton who is currently appearing in SoBe Life Water commercials.
From time to time, we plan to feature some of the hotties from the site here on Adrants. In the meantime, be sure to visit Who Is That Hot Ad Girl regularly for the finest in ad girl hotness.
And for today's eye candy, we have Irina Shayk. Russian super model Shayk has been tapped to front a new campaign for fashion brand Next, Shayk will appear in ads wearing as little as possible; bras, panties, corsets, pajamas, robes and all manner of sexed up lingerie that, let's be serious, is always designed more for men to ogle than for women to feel comfortable wearing. Especially if they aren't model-hot like Shayk.

Model Environment, a new cause group that uses fashion models to call attention to environmental and social causes is out with a new PSA, Helene on Toilet Paper. The PSA which shows model Helene Traasavis running through the woods in search of a toilet aims to urge people to reduce the amount of toilet paper they use.
There's a lot of ways to sell lingerie. Wait. No there isn't. Basically you dress a hot woman - the bigger the breasts, the better - in the most revealing lingerie the particular brand carries, have her prance around in a bedroom and stare into the camera as if she's about to explode with desire for you. Batting the eyelashes is a plus too.
Lingerie is all about sex, right? After all, what woman in their right mind would wear tiny little underthings that offer no support, create dangerous risk of nipple slippage and don't do well in the washing machine unless all she wanted to make every guy nearby squirm with embarrassment as they try to conceal the growing urgency in their pants?
So when we viewed this commercial for Baltimore-based Accentuate Lingerie which hypes lingerie as if it were the latest 1994 Dodge, we were sadly, ahem, deflated and had to go running to the latest Victoria's Secret to set thing straight.
Writing in Forbes, Susannah Breslin takes a look at a fashion brand which incorporated porn into its advertising. Mugler's Brothers of Arcadia line of clothing debuted with a graphic 14 page brochure and an x-rated video hosted on porn site XTube. The book was created by Mugler creative director Nicola Formichetti who is also Lady Gaga's fashion director. The film was created by Branislav Jankic
Oh if only life was full of ass like it always is in an Axe commercial. In this particular Axe commercial, Mexico appears to be facing an end of days-style disaster which has motivated a man to build an ark. Now this isn't your every day ark. No. Not at all. It's been outfitted with all the necessary features any man could want. Including room for a bevy of bodaciously bootylicious babes to keep him well occupied with round the clock sex during his excursion.
Ah, the Axe life. What's not to love?
What's your ultimate fantasy? Well, when it comes to fantasy, the possibilities are limitless. Except, of course, when the fantasy has to do with Bud Light Lime and the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Because when we're talking about Bud Light Lime, lime has got to be front and center and when we're talking about the UFC, well, it's a no brainer the focus is on the ring girls.
So, put the two together and what do you have? Super hot UFC girl Arianny Celeste rolling around topless in a pile of limes while professing her love for "a good submission." And by good submission, you know exactly what she wants from you. Given her hotness, we imagine it won't be hard (or will it?) for most guys to deliver.
We guarantee you absolutely will not foresee how this ad ends. We can say this with absolute certitude. Along the way you may wonder if its an ad for a feminine hygiene product or, perhaps, a contraception product or maybe even an ad calling attention to teen pregnancy or rape.
But you will never guess how it ends. Until it ends. And then you will just scratch your head and curse the creative for creating this just because it was "creative."
