(click ads) The South African edition of Marie Claire asked ad agencies to create layouts for their current "body" issue. These are the noteworthy executions.
Top Left—That's depressing. Ad agency: M&C Saatchi.
Top Right—That's better, I guess. Ad agency: King James RSVP.
Bottom Left: Unoriginal (Barbie again?), and some of the call-outs are cliches (chocolate, twice?). Ad agency: Canvas Lifestyle.
Bottom Right: Well, her hair, eyes, mouth, boobs, and hoo-ha are left, so... I don't know. Ad agency: Jupiter Drawing Room.
I'm not a woman. Women: what do you think?
