Last time we checked, Prada had the premium on ugly-arty ad campaigns, while Versace rocked the intensely colored, skin-revealing spreads, but it looks like the two brands may have swapped on us. The first image for Versace's fall women's campaign features model Elza Luijendijk in the same severely cropped bangs made even more intense with bleached eyebrows and heavy liner that you might remember from their fall 2012 runway show. Having her walk not quite Gollum style (but almost) over rocks and chains in front of a dark seaside backdrop only weirds up the look even more. The men's ad, however, has all the skin and sparkle that we know and recognize from Versace of yore.
