15 Fab Black and White Ads ...

By Meream

There is something about a black and white photo that draws you in. Mixing the right amount of other-worldly, classy, and timeless, a black and white photo (if done right) will never be boring to me. Now imagine the many fabulous B/W ads that professional photographers and gorgeous models have given us. I have found only 15 but I gather that there are more out there. The next time you see one, take the beauty in and be inspired.

1 Megan Fox for Emporio Armani

Megan Fox for Emporio ArmaniFor those who thought Megan cannot do classy, this is proof that she can. Sure she's in her underwear but the photo still has that classy touch, right?

2 Lily Allen for Coco Cocoon by Chanel, Fall '09

Lily Allen for Coco Cocoon by Chanel, Fall '09These photos are fun and cute! I would never peg Lily as the Holly Golightly type but it seems that she channeled the character fabulously.

3 Mark Wahlberg for Calvin Klein

Mark Wahlberg for Calvin KleinDoesn't he look like he's having a blast? I wonder if he still has those abs.

4 Eva Mendes for Calvin Klein

Eva Mendes for Calvin KleinThis girl is the epitome of HOT. Oily and scantily-clad body? Definitely a best-seller. The male model isn't so bad either.

5 Givenchy Spring '09

Givenchy Spring '09Nothing like sharp contrast to give off that edgy rockstar vibe. The girls are posing weird but I think it's effective.

6 Calvin Klein Spring '09

Calvin Klein Spring '09Aiming for modern minimalism, the people behind this ad sure got what they wanted. I like the fact that it's a little weird and not like most ads we see.

7 David Yurman with Kate Moss

David Yurman with Kate MossLooks like Kate Moss doesn't age, right? I think she always looks fabulous in black and white photos. Case in point, the following ad.

8 David Yurman with Kate Moss Spring '07

Kate photographs well, no doubt about that. This ad screams sensual and classy. Despite the sexiness, Kate still looks innocent.

9 Heidi Klum for Jordache

Heidi Klum for JordacheI don't know about you but I will never take a bath in my jeans. So this ad makes me curious about just how awesome those jeans are. Curiosity aside, the photo is gorgeous. I love the vignette and Heidi's wet hair.

10 Christy Turlington for Chanel

Christy Turlington for ChanelA supermodel for your ad? Nothing can't possibly go wrong with that. This ad shows nothing special but Christy is a pure beauty. Can't deny that.

11 Claudia Schiffer for Chanel

Claudia Schiffer for ChanelAnother supermodel doing what she does best. Claudia is gorgeous. If Zeus were real, I think he'd already have made Claudia his wife. Plus this dress is fab.

12 Angelina Jolie for St. John

Angelina Jolie for St. JohnAngelina looked undeniably beautiful in these ads. Top-notch photography, if I do say so myself. Shot by Mario Testino, of course.

13 Madonna for Dolce & Gabbana

Madonna for Dolce & GabbanaMadonna, the domestic diva. Who would have thunk, right? It has that very Sicilian feel, which the designers wanted the ads to portray. Sure the ads were Photoshopped but you can't deny that the end results were nice.

14 Temperly Bridal

Temperly BridalI want this wedding dress and I want my wedding photos to come out like this.

15 Daisy Lowe for Converse

Daisy Lowe for ConverseVery rock chic, right? They look like they just came from a fun concert. Or that they are a famous couple who felt like eating greasy food right after hanging out with their equally famous rock star friends.
