Oil&Water



In this edit we see the effects of the BP oil spill told in a story told by Steven Miesel, featuring none other than Kristen Mcmenamy playing the part of a dying animal bird? clad in from what I can tell is Ann Demuelemeester.

This story speaks tremendously of the environmental crisis that the gulf and its wildlife are currently faced with...Its nice though to get a dose of reality along with the fantasy in fashion. When Miesel references social issues he just gets it so right, I mean seriously these images are so powerful. Might I add that Kristen is such an amazing model you can really see the despair in her face and eyes, she has such intensity, I just cant get over the look in her eyes, its haunting.

  3. Shocking...what a creative way to demonstrate the catastrophic effects of the spill...and the model did a wonderful job, her eyes show the same sadness as the poor, helpless birds who have to suffer...Great stuff
