weekend distraction: Caroline de Maigret for Madewell

On September 15, 2013 by theseventhsphinx

I am utterly charmed by Madewell’s Fall 2013 campaign, and it is chiefly due to the model, Caroline de Maigret.

A lot of the looks are great, too (the styling is spot on trend in a relaxed, foolproof way), and as simple as they promise to be, but I don’t think I would have given them a second look if it were not for the severe, sublime architecture of this face. Oh, she’s Parisian, too.  Naturellement.

[You can also check out her interview.]

This campaign is a reminder for me of how powerful the presence of the model can be. It is making me take another look at Madewell not because I care about the pieces but because I’m so impressed with their choice of de Maigret.

    As a French, I admit that she’s the perfect incarnation of the French woman, and it’s so refreshing to see someone who’s not 15 years old and still beautiful and chic!

      Exactly! Style is ageless. She’s a mother, too, and has a career outside modeling…this all combines to make her feel more real to me. Not a mere mannequin.
