Sometimes I wonder why more footwear photo shoots aren't done in the nude, because spreads that turn out anything like the Sam Edelman SS11 campaign are sure to succeed on several levels.
Giving the billboard or magazine shopper no other garments by which to be distracted, these three images feature the flawless Charlotte Kemp Muhl, posing with provocative poise. The beautiful brunette shows off shiny gold pumps, scintillating strappy sandals and handsome beige heels that send the message that the stripped down look is often the most exquisite. There's nothing dull about these scenes, though they include camel-colored walls and carpets and a timeless tan chair.
Exposing no actual nakedness, the Sam Edelman SS11 campaign manages to attract the observer's gaze but guide one's focus down the model's long legs towards the coming season's stylish stiletto collection.
