Alexander Wang‘s new denim ads give new meaning to the term “racy”. They feature model Anna Ewers, shot by Steven Klein, in nothing but jeans. But even then, the jeans aren’t doing much to cover her. As seen in the shots below, her jeans are scrunched around her ankles, and she appears asleep or otherwise indisposed. Suggestive? Offensive? Artistic? A second shot features a p.o.v. from the model’s perspective, with one hand between her legs.
We’re not sure how these ads are going to sell jeans when the jeans are the last things you notice. ”Sex sells”, or just plain raunchy? You decide.

From DL1961: DL1961 Premium Denim unveils its Fall/Winter 2014 campaign, which was shot against a denim backdrop by fashion photographer Sharif Hamza, and styled by Tom Van Dorpe. The campaign features models Tess Hellfeuer and Mathias Lauridsen, and highlights fresh, modern looks of head-to-toe denim. From dark, clean lines to sleek, buttoned-up styling, the campaign is a major departure from anything the brand has done before.
“This season we wanted to create a collection that represents the technological nature and sleekness of our denim,” said Sarah Ahmed, DL1961’s Creative Director. “We continue our mission to create ‘the perfect fitting jeans’ and are excited to unveil our Fall/Winter fit collection, which captures the premium, effortless yet signature style that DL1961 has become known for.”

Gisele Bündchen‘s latest appearance in the BLK DNM campaign may not be so obvious at first, unless you’re one of those people who know her backside as well as you know her face. And yes, we’re sure there are some of you out there. The campaign features the super model bending over an open car hood, as if she’s going to figure out what’s wrong with it and fix it. But what do we know? Maybe she’s a trained mechanic in addition to looking that good in a pair of jeans.
