For weeks, rumors have been swirling that Madonna would be gracing Louis Vuitton’s new ad campaign. The French fashion house has remained mum — until now. Her Madgesty will indeed appear in the Spring/Summer ’09 ad campaign that will hit magazines in February 2009. The star is shot by legendary photographer Steven Meisel (who infamously collaborated with Madonna on her Sex book) in a sultry French cafe setting. When it came to choosing the new face, designer Marc Jacobs wouldn’t have it any other way. “I wanted the campaign to be very bold, very sensual and very atmospheric. To carry off all these references and all its sophistication, we needed the ultimate performer — and for me, that is Madonna,” says Jacobs. We couldn’t agree more. Tell us: What do you think of Madonna’s Louis Vuitton ads? Do you think she was the best choice?

These pictures are very well done. M looks thirty years younger. She is probably thin from dancing two hours at a time during her always sold-out world tour. Sarah and Kate need to get a life. I guarantee when they reach their 50’s, they will not be as accomplished or look as good. Haters be gone!!!

I’m neutural, I hvn’t been a big fan of Madonna however I don’t dislike her either. Be honest, she looks great whether you like her music/behaviour or not, she’s always ahead of the trends …. A lot of people especially women are jealous of her … sorry Madonna!

You go girl…Madonna, not “Sarah”. Great match,
Madonna and Louis Vuitton. They needed to turn their ad campaign up a notch. Madonna is amazing. Always exciting.

If MaDonna’s music sucks why is she still around? And my guess is when you reach 50 you will still be working until you retire. Why can’t she still work until retirement age? She has always been a trendsetter and it’s obvious because designers still look to her. She is awesome!

Hmm..she looks cool enough..I think they should have asked Britney or Christina Aguilera though!

The negetive comments must be from the selfish generation. Madonna you look awesome. You go girl!

I think Madonna looks amazing! I can’t believe she’s 50! I hope to look that great when I am her age! It’s nice to see ads with fabulous older women! It’s a shame the bags are still too expensive, though!

I’m not a huge Madonna fan at all. I think she’s musically past her prime and has to revert to technology to make her music better (i.e. Cher’s “Believe”).

Saying that, she pulls off the look and attitude required for these editorial shots fantastically. You people have to understand that in these shots the model is palette upon which the masterpiece is laid. They’re not selling Madonna, they’re selling the attitude that comes along with their vision for LV handbags…and Madonna strikes a perfect chord on that.

Okay, she is 50. Have you had a really good look at her????? The arms are disgusting. Really disgusting. Yes, she is a talent, but how far do you take it? Get in The Groove, Madonna. Act your age-gracefully.

I love it. She’s an icon and looks amazing for her age. I wish I could look that good at 50! The photography is incredible… very mysterious and sexy. I can’t wait to see it in the magazines.
