If you were hoping to be surprised by Stella McCartney’s Spring 2013 ad campaign, then I’m sorry to disappoint you, because things are starting to get predictable. Kudos if you haven’t lost track yet, but Natalia Vodianova has been tapped for the umpteenth time to star in the brand’s ad campaign. Rest assured, that vacant stare Natalia has been using at every chance is still there.
“I think if she was wearing dorky eyeglasses, it would've worked but now they've added the 'ceiling eyes' technique. This feels very untoward!” Aedlacir commented.

I'm neutral to the ad though, she looks angelic and I do quite like her wide-eyed gaze into the distance,” he admitted.
“I don't mind Natalia as much as I mind the lack of creativity,” Elfinkova remarked.
In Stella’s defense, perhaps she’s more into consistency than innovation. But still, the element of surprise would be appreciated every now and then – and I don’t mean surprise in Natalia’s eyes. She still looks beautiful despite the stare though. And I might hate/envy her a little bit /a lot for it.
