Lily Cole in Video For M&S, and She's Dressed
My previous post on Lily Cole doing French Playboy has proven to be a very popular one (not evident if you look at the comments - must have something to do with needing two hands to type - but the hits are through the roof). I debated whether to post the cover photo but knew in the end there was no way, it is WAY too pedo - she looks 9 - I just couldn't. I did link to it, however. Some say it's art, including Lily.
If you do indeed have a keen interest in Lily Cole, enough so that you'll click a few times to see her clothed and don't mind that she does in fact speak, then you might like the video above. As a new face joining the other model faces of M&S for their women's fashion campaigns, she talks about the British retailer as an ethical corporation and how she supports that way of living as an individual. (Or, you can listen to a few words to hear her lovely English accent then turn the volume off.) M&S is standing behind Lily and her decision to pose for the men's magazine. As long as you're not caught hoovering Bolivian marching powder, endorsement deals here can usually bear the fleshier controversies.
Oh, and I mentioned earlier that the French edition of Playboy is more 'sophisticated and artistic' - no, not based on my own comparisons, how would I know? - that's what 'they' say. Well, I went to the website to see if it reflected a higher level of men's 'entertainment' and, uh, it didn't look too suave and refined to me. Jordan is in the banner. As are the words 'Busty Babes'. Cliquez-ici. Need I say more? Because I'd rather not!
These however, are definitely art - photographs by Tim Walker with Lily Cole:
