Have you seen these ads yet? They’ve been gracing the premium spots in most of the glossies this month – Elle, Vogue, Marie-Claire – and I have to say, I love them (much more, at least, than Madonna crying for Dolce & Gabbana). Lindsey Wixson may only be 15 years old, but I think she brings the kind of youthful kookiness to the ads that Miu Miu needs. It’s not, after all, a brand that aspires to officewear or to the casual working woman – that’s what Prada is for.
