Your eyes probably can’t safely travel anywhere on the Internet without being hit with pictures of Justin Bieber’s Photoshopped boy tits and his “gotta poop while getting fisted” facial expression. So here’s a little fashion ad palate cleanser in the form of Joni Mitchell in ads for Saint Laurent. Saint Laurent’s creative director Hedi Slimane shot the pictures at Joni Mitchell’s house in Bel Air, CA. Courtney Love, Marianne Faithfull and Kim Gordon have all done a Saint Laurent ad before. Joni Mitchell is really giving me fashion in the face and by that I mean she looks like she’s thinking to herself, “Will you just take the picture, give me my check and then leave so that I can go back to making dreamcatcher necklaces for the birds who come around when I play the guitar in my backyard?”
Memaws heading fashion campaigns might be a new thing. First, Celine puts 80-year-old Joan Didion in an ad and now 71-year-old Joni Mitchell is doing Saint Laurent. Hopefully this leads to Betty White becoming the newest Victoria’s Secret Angel and Mickey Rourke replacing the Biebs as the new ass of Calvin Klein panties. If oldies in fashion ads becomes a trend, Lindsay Lohan will finally get her wish of starring a Chanel campaign.
Here’s another one of Joni styled like Grandma Harry Styles.
And I hope Joni Mitchell can finally heat her pool with the money she got for this shit.
