Freida Pinto Covers Glamour Magazine May 2011

Freida talks about Ethnicity ““I think people are starting to become more color-blind in the industry. Of course, my Indian-ness cannot be ignored. At the same time, if I am being considered for a romantic comedy, I would like if [the script] didn’t try to inject as much ethnicity into the story as possible.”
Filming in Tunisia “There was a civil war going on. People were burning down shops and malls; there was killing and bloodshed. I was stuck in this massive hotel with 354 rooms and only six guests. The lights kept shutting down, and there was a 5:00pm curfew. But I wasn’t there by myself: Dev [Patel, her Slumdog co-star and current boyfriend] came down to see me. I was so glad I had company.”

Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 Fashion Film Features 10 Shameless Product Placements

                                      Marc Jacobs S/S 2011 from Kalvin Lazarte on Vimeo.

Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 collection was captured on film in video lookbook of sorts by Kalvin Lazarte of Play Nice. Three models having fun, countless Marc Jacobs bags, shoes and clothes, a beautiful hotel and Seventies vibe, what more could you need, right? Well, apparently a lot of product placements.
Of course since the filming takes place at the James Hotel in New York, a clear shot of the hotel logo is acceptable and even somewhat expected. However, nine additional and quite obvious product placements bring us to a total of ten product placements in a three minutes time span. This Marc Jacobs lookbook pretty much paid for itself in the first few seconds with a nice, clear shot of an American Express card. Then came Apple, Dior, Taittinger, Fujifilm, Polaroid, Condé Nast, LG and various books.
The music in the video, by the way, is Ring Ring by Sleigh Bells who hopefully were paid very well.
Can you spot any more non Marc Jacobs products in this video?
