Sneak Peek: Christina Aguilera's Macy's Campaign

Mark Seliger for Macy’s

Macy’s has been a household name for their great fashion for years, and as part of their 150th birthday celebration, they’re letting some their biggest stars shine in a series of commemorative photos shot by famed celebrity photographer Mark Seliger. Each of five stars will represent one facet of Macy’s, with Christina Aguilera embodying the famous Flower Shows, Tommy Hilfiger taking on the Fourth of July, Martha Stewart personifying the holiday season, Donald Trump heralding the Thanksgiving Day Parade, and Calvin Klein representing the Macy’s fashion portfolio. And Seliger, who’s been one of the industry’s most successful rock photographers for over 20 years, couldn’t be happier for the opportunity to create the larger-than-life images that will roll out this fall in Macy’s stores across the country. “It’s been a privilege to collaborate with Macy’s for its 150th anniversary,” he says. “And to work with such great talent, like Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, who are icons in the fashion world, Christina Aguilera, who is one of the most important voices in popular music, and Martha Stewart and Donald Trump, who are just about as much of American icons as you can get — next to Macy’s of course.”

Jessica on

I love the photo, I can’t wait to see the others….

pls on

Oh my goodness, she is so beautiful in this photo!!! I can’t wait to see the others, and look at her…..just months after birth….argh!!! But, I still LOVE her!!!

Katia on

Lots of make up and Photoshop will help everyone too look even better than C.A. Nothing special. And her hair is too bleached to look natural.

angie on

christina looks so pretty in this pic she looks great for having max seven months ago

Crystal on

Wow, sounds a little like bitter grapes katia…

AJ on

paris hilton should do 1~

Gen on

I agree with Katia, but that is what a photo shoot is all about. TOUCH UPS. But it is a good photo.

AnnieJ on

Wow!!! She looks fab.

boe on

I agree Katia… She normally looks like a cheap hooker, it’s amazing what Photoshop can do…

Vivian on

Yes, Katia, but it takes a lot of skill with Photoshop, as well as the camera, to make an image look beautiful. Even so, you can’t polish a turd, as it’s said. Christina is an intensely gorgeous woman. So it is, in fact, something “special”.

As for her hair – I doubt she’s going for the ‘natural’ look. You should try a more positive outlook on things..

amy on

I love how these comments are supposed to be about the articles written, and yet, they always turn into a battle of opinions…and that’s just it OPINIONS, and everyone is entitled to their own.

I personally like the photo. It’s a heck of alot better than anything I could do, so kudos to Christina and to the photographer and Macy’s.

Liwanda on

I really like her because she is a talented young lady with a beautiful voice. As usual, she is over styled and with too much makeup. I think she’s prettier when she’s natural. I know it’s an ad campaign but it’s too much “look” for such a petite and pretty girl.

Ceci on

She looks so beautiful, this picture is so perfect for her

K2 on

Katia, Gen & Boe if you don’t have anything nice of say, SHUT UP!! We are all beautiful.
There’s enough negativity in the world.
Freedom of speech my b*** ~ Peace!!!

K2 on

Christina, you look beautiful
Congratulations Macy’s.

amanda on

can u say HATERS!!..

laura on

The outfit is gorgeous, but Christina is irrelevant – Macy’s could have put any thin blonde with a big chest (or even one without a big chest) in this photo and it would have looked nice. She doesn’t strike me as anything special.

Jonathan Bodack on

Christina Aguilera looks great in the new AD for Macy’s Campaign, and a happy 150th birthday goes out to Macy’s, etc.

D on

I love Christina Aguilera! She looks so beautiful in this picture! Congrats Macy’s!

heather on

Why is her hair white?

Chris on

Simply amazing! I love this color on her!

Your Biggest Fan-Hil on

Christina Aguilera is very pretty with or without makeup. I love her music. She sings beautiful. I love all of her songs especially “Hurt”. I cried when I heard the song and the words. It reminded me with the problems I had with my father. Long story… and not a happy ending. Good luck Christina. Stay beautiful and lots of luck to you, your precious son and your husband.

Katia on

heather, her hair is white because she is a showwhite? :-)

Sorry, guys, but there are many girls on the streets who look better than Christina even without Photoshop. She looks like a cheap hooker.

I love Christina’s songs and her voice, but her make up artist and her stylist have to go bye-bye! Fired!!!

alice on

I love how K2 tells people to shut up and then talks about freedom of speech. Loser.

jackie on

All the christina aguilera hater shud fall off a cliff or something… shes the most beautiful and talented in the industry and she looks great in this picture. Jealousy is an ugly disease so you guys get well soon

Tiffany on

She looks absolutely stunning! It is so sad that some people have to come up with negative things to say about a gorgeous woman to make themselves feel better. Anyone who can honestly say that she doesn’t look beautiful needs an eye doctor and a shrink.

Czar on

i have just recently learnt that there is alwasy competition between people. a girl always looks at the girl next to her to size up the competition whether she is prettier than her or not. the ones who usually comment negative things are the one insecure about themselves, often jealous because this girl next to them is superior to them in every imaginable way. so yeah, says a lot about Katia and other haters out there doesn’t it? its not having opinion, its about hating and ranting unnecessary comments, just to make themselves feel better.

"C" on

Well put, Czar.

here’s a stick to beat me with. « Better than Botox on

[…] Christina, she’s the new face of the Macy’s 45th anniversary campaign. Nice to see her back at work but crimping is SO the wrong look for you, […]

Miss M on

Wow so many hater’s. Christina looks like a hooker?? WTF? I don’t see your picture up there! She looks beautiful, very glamorous!

lydia on

she doesn’t impress me but whoever set up this picture does!! From the dress to the background it’s artistically beautiful

Kelli on

If you don’t like someone’s opinions you should just leave them be. It’s not fair if you judge them just because of what they think about this picture x_x

I personally think CA is ugly, and is doing NOTHING in the picture. I know all about modeling, and it doesn’t take much skill to stand there with your mouth open.

If you think people say negative things about others because they’re jealous then you need a reality check because their simple plain opinion could be that someone is ugly. If you can’t handle it, ignore it, instead of going on and on about it. Move on, god.

Kelli on

“the ones who usually comment negative things are the one insecure about themselves”

Stop generalizing people. You don’t even know any of us o_o

X on

huh? photoshop?? there really isnt much done with photoshop in this photo im guessing you people have never seen christina during a photoshoot she always looks imaculate!! her skin is perfect and needs no touch ups.. the only thing i see there is make up which every photoshoot uses… you people are so jealous.. she looks so beautiful and her hair isnt ment to look natural its artistic and creative it shows true talent just like gwen stefani.

Jenna on

Come on now- Christina looks great, touch ups or not! Who cares what has been done to the photo because it came out the way it was meant to- FABULOUS! Haters hate-on, we know you’re just jealous!

Czar on

‘UGLY’? isn’t that too much to say for a someone you don’t even know? Kelli says, “Stop generalising people”, isn’t that the same as you calling Christina ugly when you dont even know anything about her and all you can judge really is her physically? You can never really judge someone’s beauty or ugliness unless you know them inside and out, so if you think Christina is ugly because she is ‘photoshopped’, or bcoz she wear too much make-up, or that her hair is ‘fake’ and this and that, I think I am right in saying that your view in what being beautiful means is pretty shallow and bleak. If this is how people percieve beauty, you can apply this to every single celebrity out there.

meena on

The colours are beautiful. Christina has a sharp face with a pronounced nose which adds to the drama of the photo. However, she is not beautiful.

monica on

it seems that Katia has a lot of fans, more than christina..i agree with her too!

Daph on

She looks amazing!

Lorraine on

Christina is the Ultimate Latina!

big e on

She looks like a Drag Queen!!! so fake!

catherine on
