Madonna Stars in the New Louis Vuitton Advertising Campaign Spring/Summer 2009

Following his acclaimed Spring/Summer 2009 ready-to-wear show for Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs knew exactly who he wanted to embody the spirit of the season: Madonna should be the face of Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer fashion campaign.

collaborator Steven Meisel, the first time the influential fashion
photographer has shot a campaign for Louis Vuitton. The chemistry between the two is evident as - in a sepia-toned setting reminiscent of a Paris café in the Forties, with its zinc bar, bentwood chairs and air thick with smoke -
Madonna transforms into Marc Jacobs' vision of the quintessential Parisienne, striking provocative poses in the season's sexy short skirts, ethnic-inspired sandals and animal-print bangles.
"I wanted the campaign to be very bold, very sensual and very
atmospheric. To carry off all these references and all this sophistication, we needed the ultimate performer - and for me, that is Madonna," says Marc Jacobs.
