F/W Ad Campaign Winner

Some days on Yow Yow! we have music or wedding themed post days, but today is all about fashion. I’ve only seen just a few F/W ad campaigns so far, but Lanvin takes the cake. Raquel Zimmerman, Karen Elson, two male models and even Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz get their groove on to Pitbull’s “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)” while wearing clothes from this upcoming season.

This looks like too much fun.
