Prada’s New Wonderboy: Tobey Maguire

June 14, 2011 § Leave a comment

Maybe it’s because Peter Parker might have worn Prada?  I don’t know for sure, but I do know that Prada’s choice of Tobey Maguire as it’s face for the F/W 11 season is unexpected.  Maguire isn’t especially known for his stellar style, plus he hasn’t been relevant since Spiderman 3 came out in 2007.  Nevertheless, what Miuccia wants, Miuccia gets.  Here are a couple of “sneak peak images” shot by David Sims.

Looking at this in a different light, Prada’s choice of Maguire makes sense in that his look coincides with the label’s affinity for skinny, white models with unconventionally handsome faces.  Also, Maguire has 3 movies set for release in 2012, and from the titles alone, at least 2 are sure to be commercially successful: Life of Pi and The Great Gatsby.  Perhaps Miuccia is just smarter than all of us in choosing Maguire.  Perhaps this makes complete sense and we just don’t know it yet- kind of like her designs.
