SusanSarandonUniqlo Uniqlo NYC Ad Campaign To Feature Susan Sarandon

Uniqlo is about to launch a New York City-themed ad campaign that will feature a bunch of famous New Yorkers, including the ageless Susan Sarandon. (We saw her not too long ago at an event she hosted and yes, even in the flesh sans good lighting and makeup, the woman is positively luminescent.) The ad spots will also include Laura Linney, John Leguizamo, Glee’s Darren Criss, jazz musician Esperanza Spalding and Tumblr founder David Karp among others.

In a WWD article Sarandon says nice things about Uniqlo, natch, but goes on to express more opinion-based things on her feelings on the fashion industry, in particular how the industry relates to her oft-celebrated rack:

“I like to have fun dressing up. I hold onto things. All my Azzedine Alaïa from years ago I still have. Donna Karan and Diane von Furstenberg are old, old friends. Dolce & Gabbana have always been very generous and they have those great Fifties silhouettes that are great if you have breasts. Donna always designs for women with curves in mind. Sometimes designers don’t take breasts into account and there’s no room for them.”

On a side note, this David Karp Tumblr founder…did you know who he is or what he looks like? I didn’t. So I grabbed an image from Google and put it on the next page in case you’re curious, too. He looks like he’s maybe 17 though apparently he’s 26. And he has a Tumblr page, which is kinda good. Imagine that! And oh look, he even has a teaser from Uniqlo’s (I presume) holiday ad campaign.
