Art as Ads: Marilyn Minter for Jimmy Choo

By Erika Brechtel @smallshopstudio

All hot and sweating gold…

Finally watched last week’s episode of Million Dollar Decorators. I had not seen or heard about the Jimmy Choo Crystal Anniversary ad campaign created by artist Marilyn Minter. (Where have I been? Seriously, I’m concerned.) Provocative. Edgy. Stunning.

I especially love how my search post-episode turned up both horizontal and vertical images, accentuating just how critical the crop can be! In the shots of the pair, it’s all about the composition, don’t you think? But in the shots with a single shoe, it is most certainly all about the shoe.

Are you awake now? Happy Monday!
