Before: Revlon’s 1952 ad for the Fire & Ice Collection, shot by Richard Avedon, featuring model Dorian Leigh wearing a silver gown framed by a sweeping opera cape (a copy of a Balenciaga original), her hands drawing attention to her red nails and lips.
Its like a Rene Gruau drawing, isn't it?
After: With Fire & Ice back on shelves (Revlon has re-released three “lip-and-tip” pairings). The recreated ad, shot by Mario Testino, features actress Jessica Biel (it's challenging to even try to think what she's ever been in. TV movie, maybe?). It just looks so tawdry. Is it her? Is it him?
