It sees models transforming themselves into dresses and features surrealist cinema influences such as reverse-speak and dreamlike sequences.
The ad stars British actress Imogen Poots and was shot in Morocco — with Bryan Ferry’s “Avalon” as the soundtrack.
The video shows the famous Cartier leopard running, walking and leaping through an icy terrain while products from the jeweler’s holiday collection emerge from under snow or in bubbles and are simply resting against the landscape.
In the YouTube version, consumers can click on the links that appear in the video to search for the “her,” “him” and “all” products.

For its new perfume, Candy, the Italian brand Prada hired the young French actress Léa Seydoux to lose control and take the lead.
Inspired by the Apache, a dance performed in Paris in the 1930s, Seydoux engages in a wild yet elegant routine with her piano teacher, guiding him instead of being guided — presumably the idea of a woman conveyed by Prada, which is clearly after a new younger, more daring audience.
Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, the Emporio Armani Fall/Winter 2011 Campaign features models Iselin Sterio and Simon Nessman.

Nine d’Urso is the face of the luxe label Bottega Veneta‘s eponymous perfume in the just-released commercial.
She appears to be madly in love with a shirtless companion, frolicking on a beach in the signature all-American romance of director Bruce Weber.
“The challenge was to picture the soul of a fragrance…Weber possesses a unique and uncanny ability to capture the authentic moment. He sees more than others see, and so produces striking images of innocence and sensuality.”
In the second installment of its Women’s Tales series, Miu Miu collaborated with director Lucrecia Martel on a film noir titled Muta.
