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?

Madonna is 50 and FABULOUS. I can only hope to have her fierce and very toned body when i’m her age. You should see her in concert – at 50 she still knows how to bring-da-house down. So, stop hating on her cause she is and will always be HOT!!!

I think it’s a great ad campaign! While I do not agree with her morals of late. . .she still is an image that’s great for fashion and she’s in fabulous shape!!!!!!

Sorry, babe but you don’t have the “right stuff” anymore. Madonna looks harsher, colder, and more rigid than ever – not the epitome of stylish sophistication. Motherhood certainly has not changed her in terms of being classier and more refined. Even a good British husband couldn’t do that! I wish Madonna would go away. I feel so badly saying this – I know she’s a person with feelings! But you asked!

Sorry Miss Sarah, your small-minded comments are nasty and mean. But in the end they say more about you than about Madonna.

wow – some of the negative comments are harsh! Madonna is the queen! She has more style, class, experience and talent than Britney could ever wish for. Without her team Britney looks like well,a trashy chick wearing cutoffs and walking barefoot in a gas station washroom! REMEMBER? That is the REAL Britney..the one who dates paparrazzi, the one who drives with her baby on her lap, the one who shaves her head and gets a tattoo for fun! There is NO comparison between Britney and Madonna, only wannabes! And yes, I do hope Madonna is riding A’s rod! He’s hot and rich just like her.

I think she looks great in these ads — Louis has an edge in them!

She is hideous and far too thin, which ages her. She absolutely looks her age. That said, the ads are nice and airbrushing works wonders.

I think Madonna is a great choice fo the Louis Vuitton ads.

She’s edgy and bold — obviously what the ad wants to convey.

I’m tired of those saying she’s old, or that she looks good for her age. Fifty isn’t what it used to be (and everyone better get used to it!). You can be vital, fashionable and attractive. She just looks good period. Also, most women in their 30’s through 60’s can afford and wear these bags — not girls in their teens or 20’s.

God awful. The clothes are as ugly as she is.
