Drew Barrymore is the new Missoni girl. I've always liked Drew, but never really considered her as the frontwoman for a fashion house. The images for Missoni's s/s 06 campaign look great (the one at left is my favourite), but Drew's overall appearance seems affected. She is heavily styled to look like a 60's era Italian socialite- which there is nothing wrong with- but the look is so far from her personal style, that the facade isn't believable. These campaigns seek to communicate a mood, something that only works for me if the model embodies a little of the philosophy and aesthetic of the label being advertised. More details here.

Wow, she's let something out here I've never seen before. Perhaps it's the photographer? Definitely caps the strength and sensuality here; could be Cleopatra in that photo.

She looks absolutely fab! Who says great makeup, photographer and sytlist cannot make you look like a million bucks...

I never thought of her representing a fashion house either but she looks great in her photos...
