There is a new ad pitch coming from L’Oreal based on four muses, or “leading ladies”. They each have a backstory, a color palette and a snowball’s chance in hell of being a successful marketing campaign. The designers are supposed to use the castle backdrop as inspiration as they design an Avant Garde look for one of these little tins of powder. As little sense as it makes to bus them out to a fancy estate to talk about this, I’m thinking the goal was to distract the viewers from how dumb this ad campaign actually is.
The infamous Button Bag is employed to match the designers to the shitty concepts. We have Unibrow drawing The Enchanted Queen who is bestowed with Black ‘n Berry, also a new kind of cocoa puff I believe. Sonjia, the beautiful but sexless, draws The Seductive Temptress who is unseductively colored gold and olive green. Fittingly, Dmitry gets The Wise Mystic, which is the only correct pairing, in shades of violet and blue. Tara Reid gets The Artsy Muse in coral and pastels. I loathe thinking that a whole team of people made a salary on this BS. Since we have an extra left over Christopher is allowed to choose his muse and goes, obviously, for Unibrow’s queen. Some have sensed this is a bit of producer manipulation to play to Chris’s strengths.
“Why is there no Rockabilly Mamie?”
The designers get to run around the massive manicured grounds and sketch for a while. The gardens and house are gorgeous; they remind me of the even more opulent Biltmore estate in Asheville, NC. I highly recommend anyone who has the chance to take a visit!
Chris chooses to appear whimsical and fun by skipping with a girl
Dmitry heads straight for boobies just like a straight man would
Lacking a table to drunkenly climb onto,Tara goes for the next best thing
Unibrow sits by the dumpsters at the back of the estate
Sonjia does this, seductively
At mood we find Tara struggling to work with colors instead of her old standby of black, but she seems to have a solid vision. Chris is feeling the heat of going head to head with Unibrow, but he is also confident he will win. Sonjia seems to be struggling but is finding some interesting fabrics in both the green and the gold but she is so in love with the gold lame, we get a hint of foreshadowing.
We also get a peek at Sonjia’s banging body. Stop hiding that thing in overalls!
