The new Guess? ads are out, and they're great, but a little bit sad. After all, if Amy Winehouse were healthy, she'd look exactly like this picture of a sultry beehived babe, as embodied by Aussie model Nicole Trufino. It's clear Guess? is taking a page from Karl Lagerfeld's latest Cruise collection, which was based entirely on Ms. Amy and featured Coco Rocha wearing yesterday's eyeliner and hair more teased than a nerd in eighth grade. We like the direction where Guess? is going, straddling their pinup girl heritage with something more music-infused and borrowed by high fashion. Maybe for Fall, they'll make it look like Duffy?
Guess Who? A Look Back at the Ten Most Famous Guess Girls
We were all completely blown away by the images released earlier today of Claudia Schiffer's new campaign for Guess, twenty-three years after the German supermodel originally posed for the brand. Two decades later, the lady still looks as Guess-girl flawless as she did back in 1989, before she attained her supermodel status. It got us to thinking: In the thirty years of Guess's existence, which other big-names got their industry start modeling for the brand? We did a little digging, and as it turns out, there have been quite a few more than you might Guess (ha!). It seems like Victoria's Secret (you know, that other brand known for its seriously sexy campaign starlets) has a habit of plucking its Angels from the pool of genetically blessed Guess girls. And then, there have also been a few Guess missteps (coughParis Hilton). Click through for some of the lucky girls who've followed in Claudia's well-pedicured footsteps: Scoring both a Guess contract and the (generally) good career fortune that seems to follow, with a few exceptions.
