Marc Jacobs' Advertisement Fail

Am I the only person that doesn't get Marc Jacobs' Ads? Just checking...

If nothing else, with a Jacobs' ad, there is always the certainty that I won't like it. 

I can't even focus on the product because I'm always distracted by the people he chooses and the weirdness of it all.

There seems to be this desire to portrait people in unusual poses, and an exaltation of their more unique (sometime ugly) features. All I see in this picture is a tired woman with big hands. How is that going to sell me a handbag, I don't know.

While I think some fashion photography can be art forms, this is not one of them. Maybe the sleepy-eyed model is meant to be "sultry" - I don't know.
