Vogue Invites us to 'Feel the Glam Forest,' We Politely Decline


The notion that out there is a wilderness dripping with pleasures in the raw is incredibly attractive. That's why Willy Wonka's candy forest still lingers in our dreams.

We're also guessing that's what Lowe, Athens had in mind when it invented a world ornamented in jewelry for Vogue (not the magazine). See variation here.

From a distance, the ads look compelling. Up close, they strike us as clumsy and pedestrian. The jewelry seems copy/pasted, and something about the way the models are dressed evokes a poorly-stocked costume rack in some photo studio we hope to never visit.

And come on. The glam forest? Really? Was that the best you could do?

"Glam Forest"? Is that, like, where the wild Gary Glitter lives? Probably not what Vogue had in mind...

why are you being polite about this crap? Rant like it's the end of the world.

The ring as the moon is so fucking out of perspective that even a retard can't figure out how the reflection is so deviated from the crappy cut paste job of making the ring look like a moon. I would have been just happy, if she was mooning the moon.

Don't even get me started on the plant life/lesbian butt fucking ad. Now I know why their logo looks like a vagina.

See. sorry.
