Lizzy Caplan makes our favorite fashion commercial
For those who think some fashion ads are just too pretentious, your fantasy best friend Lizzy Caplan has got you (fashionably) covered.
Caplan stars in a new ad that perfectly parodies the high-fashion world and the commercials that accompany it. “Sometimes I think to myself in French, and listen to old records from the ’60s. They are way better than stuff from today,” Caplan says in a voiceover as she frolics in the grass, poses in hazy lighting and reads vintage paperbacks while she thinks about starting a band. “I like to collect things. I’m good at it.”
Caplan’s publicist tells EW that the ad is for a real fashion company, Viva Vena!, which is mentioned at the end of the commercial, but that the two-minute ad is spoofing “Fashion Films” in general. Check out the semi-NSFW video below:
