As readers flip through the latest issue of W Magazine, they may find themselves in wonderment at how good some of the ads are this time around; that will be because those ads are part of a sneaky editorial titled Steven Meisel’s Fabulous Fakes. Enlisting one of the fashion industry's most celebrated and talented photographers, W Magazine has put together a photo spread that masquerades as faux-ads.

Starring the "who's who of pop culture today," as W puts it, Steven Meisel’s Fabulous Fakes include 'Toddlers & Tiaras' star Eden Wood modeling for a fake children's clothing label, Anna Dello Russo in a green face mask and Karen Elson with a bevy of red-bottomed men. The series of nine fake ads will be scattered throughout the issue.
