This is genius!!! Dafoe, Brody, Oldman? Any day.
January 15, 2012 at 9:11 pm
you are so great
January 15, 2012 at 9:17 pm
I see Dafoe, Brody and Oldman.
January 15, 2012 at 9:21 pm
Great shots Scott. Beautiful collection from the front row
January 15, 2012 at 9:27 pm
Wow. The faces and expressions of these models are absolutely stunning. They look as if they came straight out of the past.
January 15, 2012 at 9:28 pm
Love the highlights from this show and the addition of the actors in the show is a nice touch. There seems to be an Indian Raj-inspired movement afoot. Thanks for the great photos Scott.
January 15, 2012 at 9:34 pm
Crazy! And awesome, of course.
January 15, 2012 at 9:38 pm
As the first comment for this post, I’m sure it will vouch for all subsequent comments…LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

I had mixed feelings about Prada’s collection, but now I’m starting to like it.

This is the epitome of male elegance!!
Now I know for sure that Elegance is not dead, your photos demonstrate it everyday.
we are arriving to the greatest amalgam of fashion synthesis alchemy. smaller world, more beautiful, artful possibilities.
wow. love the distinguished, vintage, gentlemanly look
January 15, 2012 at 10:11 pm
she is great!!always changes the tide…..
January 15, 2012 at 10:15 pm
I was astonished to see the actors wearing the clothes here. But it somehow suits them.
January 15, 2012 at 10:17 pm
Proste, eleganckie, piękne!
January 15, 2012 at 10:21 pm
So dapper! Why can’t we see more of this in day to day dress? (Well, at least where I live..) :)
January 15, 2012 at 10:23 pm
Oldman channeling an extremely debonaire George Smiley? Beautiful stuff!
January 15, 2012 at 10:33 pm
wow, real men are back!
January 15, 2012 at 10:36 pm
WOW. I love everything about this from the saturated tones, to the curlicue moustaches.
January 15, 2012 at 10:40 pm
it could be Jonathan Rhys Meyers on the second
January 15, 2012 at 10:43 pm
Loved that Gary Oldman stayed in character. I love that style, but was the presentation a bit too Nazi inspired? It was the graphics on the floor, a couple of the pins on the jackets, and if there was just one non Caucasian, I would have made me feel better.
January 15, 2012 at 10:50 pm
brilliant. brody looks spectacular.
January 15, 2012 at 11:03 pm
Was that Adrien Brody? I would be so excited to see people walk down city streets in those clothes.
January 15, 2012 at 11:07 pm
Wow! Fantastic presentation. I particularly LOVE the coat in the 7th picture.
January 15, 2012 at 11:09 pm
Powerful!! Spellbinding!! Bold!! Gary Oldman, Willem Defoe, Adrian Brody…. the connotations are so so so intense and deep. Only Prada!

January 15, 2012 at 11:16 pm
I LOVE this line. Especially the choice in models — reflects the style so wonderfully. Their bone structure!
January 15, 2012 at 11:23 pm
Those long coats are absolutely gorgeous and that double breasted jacket screams serious business!
January 15, 2012 at 11:25 pm
jeepers creepers! dafoe?! brody?! oldman?! phew.
January 15, 2012 at 11:26 pm
Cameo models! How exciting!
January 15, 2012 at 11:47 pm
Fantastic! I love Oldman’s long coat. Beautiful fabric; looks good on him.
Overall look for the show is fierce & old-school masculine. A great show!
January 15, 2012 at 11:52 pm
what a classic fashion. very nice. mustache suits him.
January 15, 2012 at 11:54 pm
Oh my lord these men look fantastic. And even the celebs look good in the mix. Bravo!
January 16, 2012 at 12:00 am
Gary Oldman, Adrien Brody, William Dafoe?!? What an absolutely BRILLIANT idea! Adrien Brody in particular, looks absolutely striking in Prada!
January 16, 2012 at 12:11 am
Amazing, as always, at Prada. Love the Victorian influence in the fabric choices and the mustache grooming.
January 16, 2012 at 12:36 am
wow.. gary oldman. So striking!
January 16, 2012 at 12:39 am
the long coats look great
January 16, 2012 at 12:42 am
Willem Defoe has the most amazing look. Hasn’t changed EVER but is always a treat to look at.
Prada’s really having some fun with their style. I enjoy this.
January 16, 2012 at 12:43 am
@Karen, Nazi-inspired? I don’t see that at all. Bolshevik Revolution-inspired, perhaps.
January 16, 2012 at 12:54 am
Oh that’s Prada and so classic clothes…That’s unusual!
Show your outfit!
January 16, 2012 at 12:56 am
Willem Defoe and Adrian Brody are runway villains.
January 16, 2012 at 1:09 am
The older model guy is so sexy!!!! Why can’t guys look like that out on the street!!!! That is so much better then just a suit or a pair of jeans. Love the longer sleeves, and the longer pants length. i think guys look sort of silly with their socks and wrists showing. This is badass!!!!!!!
January 16, 2012 at 1:12 am
LOVE the coats. Especially the red one on Adrien Brody. Very sexy and dapper. But, is it me or do the mustaches make the guys look a bit smarmy? Just tipping them over the “trying too hard” edge.
January 16, 2012 at 1:13 am
Is that really Gary Oldman?? Oh wow. Wow. Willem Defoe and Adraian Brody!!! Now thats a fashion show worth attending. Anyone there was just too lucky.
January 16, 2012 at 1:20 am
@ Karen, relax. I think Adrien Brody is actually of Jewish decent. So you can turn of the politically correct alarm. LOL. Its beautiful and dapper. So it can only encourage things in a good direction.
January 16, 2012 at 1:23 am
Gorgeous coats. Men’s fashion can be so sexy.
January 16, 2012 at 1:32 am
Amazing show… absolutely fabulous photos…
January 16, 2012 at 1:35 am
Love the colour, the cut, the presentation, the models, …
What not to love. So inspirational, daring and enticing.
January 16, 2012 at 1:38 am
WOOOOWWWWW, GENIUS !!!!!!! Soo exciting, I can’t believe that this hasn’t been done before, it seems so obvious. Willem Dafoe….goosebumps. Could you imagine being there ??
January 16, 2012 at 2:01 am
Willem dafoe is the most handsome man I know! The clothes look amazing.
January 16, 2012 at 2:07 am
January 16, 2012 at 2:36 am
Finally, real humans on the catwalk! Genius!
January 16, 2012 at 2:42 am
Men’s Fashion exists, not silly experiments or clothes good only for magazine covers. In this ’800 red carpet, real Men wear wonderful dresses that any of us of could wear.
January 16, 2012 at 2:52 am
January 16, 2012 at 2:55 am
wait..whaaa? was that Mr Oldman? I would simply just pee my pants if I were sitting in that audience.
But seriously, its an understated old world elegance that comes across very well with the artistic use of these actors
January 16, 2012 at 3:02 am
Prefer Dafoe, Brody, Oldman than reall models!
January 16, 2012 at 3:05 am
I see the definite influence of Downton Abbey. Surely the finest Leather influenced scents will also see a revival.
January 16, 2012 at 3:09 am
It’s like classic movie‼Wonderfu‼
January 16, 2012 at 3:10 am
oh wow amazing
January 16, 2012 at 3:13 am
like the models!!!!
January 16, 2012 at 3:21 am
Speacless!!! Wow!!! best i´ve seen in al long time!!!
January 16, 2012 at 3:25 am
I can only say : I like it !
January 16, 2012 at 3:29 am
Genius idea with the actors!!!
January 16, 2012 at 3:39 am
So much class.
January 16, 2012 at 3:41 am
Looks like film costume to me. So it seems appropiate that it is presented by actors.
January 16, 2012 at 3:50 am
January 16, 2012 at 3:54 am
This Show was amazing !! I remember when Willem walked everybody was like ” OOOOOUUU HOHOHOHOH !! ” so funny !!
January 16, 2012 at 3:58 am
wow, other times
January 16, 2012 at 4:07 am

January 16, 2012 at 4:08 am
Unforgetable Prada! As always!
January 16, 2012 at 4:13 am
|That picture of Adrian Brody… Hello new background on my computer :-)
January 16, 2012 at 4:27 am
Love this runway!
January 16, 2012 at 4:31 am
It’s really a mystifying and in some ways thought provoking piece of theatre. But as a menswear collection? Not sold.
January 16, 2012 at 4:35 am
Not a Prada fan (don’t hate me) but this is BRILLIANT! Love it!
January 16, 2012 at 4:44 am
Lovely, allthgouh some may look like night gowns rather than coats. Lovely choice of models.
January 16, 2012 at 4:45 am
I totally love this collection, and the fact that she used true power men makes it so much cooler!
January 16, 2012 at 4:54 am
Thanks for that!
January 16, 2012 at 5:21 am
Adrien Brody is the most handsome man! Especially while he’s rockin Prada…
January 16, 2012 at 6:12 am
woow, they look grea with the clothes, I love itt! Cool with the actors too!
January 16, 2012 at 6:17 am
you are truly an inspiration..
January 16, 2012 at 6:19 am
Beautiful.. but is it fashion or costume design?
January 16, 2012 at 7:31 am
This is fantastic. Absolutely beautiful and tasteful.
January 16, 2012 at 7:32 am
What a cast! made my day! :)
January 16, 2012 at 8:00 am
Now this is classy.
January 16, 2012 at 8:02 am

Have a great week.

What Is The New Black
January 16, 2012 at 8:16 am
I love how some of the models are older, that’s so cool. Looks like a very interesting collection!
January 16, 2012 at 8:45 am
January 16, 2012 at 9:17 am
I’m seeing Edwardian / 1920′s inspiration, and very handsome indeed.
As an older gentleman it’s great to see presentations with models in my own age bracket. Sorry, but seeing a twenty year old wearing a $3500.00 jacket makes me whince. Especially given the fact that most twenty year old men wouldn’t be caught dead in the clothes. Namely because they are creating their own look which designers use as inspiration. So it’s confusing….
All the gents look fantastic…
January 16, 2012 at 9:19 am
cute as in bespoke version of junya watanabe.
January 16, 2012 at 9:20 am
January 16, 2012 at 9:26 am
Mind blowing to see this kind of proper style return. Modernity is seriously hidden in this classic, world class style of dressing! Amazing!
January 16, 2012 at 9:57 am
wonderful photos, wonderful models, wonderful parade.
January 16, 2012 at 10:03 am
Elegant and dangerous. Superb. And what a surprise to see Emil Hirsch.
January 16, 2012 at 10:12 am
Please, someone just put M. Prada in a trunk and let me carry her everywhere.
Still trying to catch up for the Spring 2012 women’s collection.
Tell me where to buy those clothes and jewlery?
All I see around the world of Prada stores are their selling shoes and bags…where are the clothes…those vintage cars skirts…chiffon shirts…
January 16, 2012 at 10:25 am
Adrien Brody! Gotta love it!
January 16, 2012 at 10:31 am
this is just… genious. i couldn’t think of three worthier actors for the job than dafoe, oldman and brody. and they look absolutely fantastic. stunned.
C’mon guys some of those topcoat fabrics look as if they belong on Lazyboy armchairs.
January 16, 2012 at 10:42 am
Great shots, thank you Scott.
Actors on the catwalk is nothing new i guess, i remenber a comme de garcons-show in the late 1980ies/early 1990ies (i´m older, you see) with julian sands, john malkowich and peter weller (yes, “robocop”).
January 16, 2012 at 11:10 am
OMG this is fabulous!
January 16, 2012 at 11:21 am
Nothing short of brilliant. I hope more designers will start to use a sprinkling of actors in their runway shows. It adds another element of drama while at the same time making the collection easier to conceptualize.
January 16, 2012 at 11:56 am
I don’t think there is anything more elegant or sexy than a well tailored man!! LOVE IT!!
January 16, 2012 at 12:27 pm
best thing ever
January 16, 2012 at 12:37 pm
Finally a show that matches your photography. They picked 3 actors that are comfortable in the clothes, have the presence to match the venue, and a well conceived season of stylish and believable clothes.
January 16, 2012 at 12:41 pm
It always a treat to see well dressed men.
January 16, 2012 at 12:52 pm
Fab fashions! Those three actors have such gravity and depth in their expressions…they evoke an expectation upon their mere entrance into a room…great choices. Furthermore, great aspect and lighting on the shots, Sart! You do know how to draw the “beguile” out of your subjects with a quick snap of the shutter.
January 16, 2012 at 1:04 pm
Men have it so easy, sling on a tailored suit and they automatically look perfectly sexy. I LOVE the subtle air of menace in the show! And you know some of those models have a certain je ne sais quoi…you know like I’ve seen them on the big screen LOL! I suppose one must keep busy in between scripts…:-)
January 16, 2012 at 1:08 pm
Wow! I’m surprised but impressed to see massive movie stars on the catwalk but they make the clothes look great xx
January 16, 2012 at 1:10 pm

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…there’s nothing like a man in a sharp suit!
January 16, 2012 at 2:09 pm
Wow, great call on Prada’s part….
Now, let’s see if any men buy these and wear them?
une chatte grise
January 16, 2012 at 3:04 pm
They all look smashing. And I want one of those foulard coats! The one in the second photo would do nicely, thank you. (In the real world, I just might bust out the old vintage smoking jacket again…)
January 16, 2012 at 3:20 pm
The clothes look even better if they are worn by men of different age than by only young models. It is more realistic and probably also boosts their sales. The idea behind all this might be : You always wanted to be like Oldman, Brody and Co?! Now you can by wearing Prada!
January 16, 2012 at 3:55 pm
Gary Oldman & Adrien Brody were a pleasant surprise to an already wonderful show. Adrien Brody actually looks like he could even be a model and walk other shows, not just Prada!
January 16, 2012 at 3:57 pm
PRADA! is the best!!
Gentleman Hits the Town
January 16, 2012 at 4:42 pm
I am speechless!
The real version of the man! It is pure classicism!
Now I can’t choose between Miuccia or Christopher Bailey. I choose both. they are amazing!
January 16, 2012 at 4:51 pm
Dafoe is seriously turning me on here; it’s like Body of Evidence all over again.
January 16, 2012 at 4:59 pm
It was pretty great to see all those actors on the runway however, for us, it was quite miserable to stay in line until the last minute with no idea whether we would go step on the runway or not. And after the castings + fittings it was not the greatest feeling in the world!
January 16, 2012 at 5:18 pm
Pure genius. I don’t even have the words to try and describe it.
January 16, 2012 at 6:10 pm
This is too much. Prada is my number one for menswear. Smoldering.
January 16, 2012 at 6:26 pm
I have always been, and am still at a loss as to why runway shots are not all taken from this angle. Whenever I see then collections shot head-on (standard) and then see the same looks posted here, I am floored. The difference and realism of the side-angle brings the clothes and the model (and thus the show) to life.
Obviously it makes sense that the majority of runway photos have to be taken head on, because that’s where the photographer pit is, at the end of the runway, but it baffles me that style.com (at least) doesn’t ever have any photos taken from a front row vantage. It seems like the editors AND designers would both want this to happen.
January 16, 2012 at 8:27 pm
Stunning collection, gorgeous show!!!!
January 16, 2012 at 10:41 pm
M. Prada has BRILLIANT taste in her selection of actors. They fit perfectly.
January 17, 2012 at 12:22 am
I have no words. Well maybe one. Amazing.

Oscar Wilde said: ” Either you are a masterpiece, or you wear it”
Here am afraid I cannot say.
Am speechless. I love those guys and the look in their faces. I love the aura of mystery of the place and of the clothes. I am thrilled by the sense that they’re all going to meet in some secret room and scheme.
A big kiss from Greece!
January 17, 2012 at 5:33 am
Feeling of old Russia. Gotta love it!
January 17, 2012 at 6:46 am
WOW! it’s like an aristocratic fashion style. I don’t like PRADA but these items are so good!
January 17, 2012 at 8:05 am
What a line-up!
Adrian Brody looks like he is just about to take over the world in that beautiful red coat.
Wonderful Prada. B

Génial ! Génial !!!

January 17, 2012 at 11:25 am
I love Prada.. i think the models and or actors take themselves a bit too seriously!
January 17, 2012 at 12:17 pm
Ah! I couldn’t believe my eyes!..
But aside from the stars – I’m a girl and I want one of those coats anyway – they are sublime!
January 17, 2012 at 1:11 pm
Impressive! The Russian influence is used to great effect. Gary Oldman, Willem Dafoe and Adrien Brody look sharp. Very imperial. The jackets have some elegant details and really seem to suit the adult men- it brings to mind wealthy arisocrats.
January 17, 2012 at 3:19 pm
Wow! David Prada does it again!!
January 17, 2012 at 6:12 pm
The bone structure alone on Dafoe+Oldman+Brody is enough to bring me to my knees, but add in a line-perfect Prada overcoat and I am in the beyond.
Prada is simply slap-yo-mamma worthy.
January 17, 2012 at 7:29 pm
January 17, 2012 at 10:00 pm
Can someone please tell me why Michael Pitt wasn’t in on this one too?
January 17, 2012 at 11:18 pm
The three actors STAND OUT to me the most. Stance, presence and character jump out at me from the screen. There seems to be a definitive story coming from them. Genius to use them!!

January 18, 2012 at 6:45 am
I love the collection… just so elegant!
January 18, 2012 at 7:41 am
neat, elegant, and classic!
January 18, 2012 at 10:21 am
This is the kind of collection, I would normaly expect from a powerhouse like Prada
January 18, 2012 at 6:04 pm
January 18, 2012 at 8:20 pm
Amazing… simply amazing…
January 18, 2012 at 9:30 pm
What I love best about this is that the actors showcase the collection much better than the “real” models. On the models, well, they look like young boys wrapped in fabric sacks, but on Oldman, Defoe, and Brody, these clothes look right- wearable, lush, retro, and masculine. Perfection!
January 18, 2012 at 9:33 pm
maybe it was the quality of the youtube vid….but seeing the collection as a whole, reminded me of east germany on a sunny day.
loved it when Defoe was giving Roth shit at the turn
January 19, 2012 at 7:20 am
BRODY, DAFOE, OLDMAN…..not only are adept at acting, but look awesome.
Brody’s Red coat is to die for.
Guys please check out my blog too and Id appreciate genuine advice.
January 19, 2012 at 10:45 am
WILLEM. OH GOD. I LOVE HIM. MMMMMMMMMM
January 20, 2012 at 3:53 am
“Loved that Gary Oldman stayed in character. I love that style, but was the presentation a bit too Nazi inspired? It was the graphics on the floor, a couple of the pins on the jackets, and if there was just one non Caucasian, I would have made me feel better.”
Would you say the same thing if there was a runway with just black people, that if there was just one caucasian, that would have made you feel better? Probably not. There is always that double standard when it comes to that subject.
January 20, 2012 at 11:07 am
I also saw via thaeger that there was Tim Roth, Jamie Bell, Emile Hirsch and Garrett Hedlund. Oldman and DeFoe are fantastic, they really wear it well.
January 20, 2012 at 8:00 pm
PRADA is a genius!!!!
January 21, 2012 at 9:01 am
I dont know why I think of Russian Tea Room but thats what comes to mind when I see these guys. Also if they had actors modeling I would attend, or try to sneak in before getting carted by the poliska.
January 21, 2012 at 1:45 pm
The celebrities were Gary Oldman, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Garret Hetlund (Tron, Legacy), Emile Hirsch, Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot) and Tim Roth. In one word, BRILLIANT!
January 21, 2012 at 5:42 pm
this is a spectacle not of refinement, but rather one which combines the interest in fame (those who are known, actors) and nostalgia (in the form of old clothes, mannerisms perhaps) to sell a product. that being said, gary oldman looks great. whether it can translate to “normal” people wearing this with any degree of strength, that is highly unlikely.
January 22, 2012 at 1:52 pm
So early-2oth-century! Luxe. Elegant. Restrained yet so subtly lush. I would marry any man within 15 years of my own age as long as he promised to dress like this forever.

William Defoe, Adrian Brody AND Gary Oldman? What an awesome runway show, I’m pretty jealous that I couldn’t be there, haha.
January 25, 2012 at 10:27 pm
How exciting to see! That is BEYOND awesome. Where can i get the thorough runway pictures? Cost wise, they must have invested serious amount of money. like serious with capital letters, bold, underlined and italic font.
January 26, 2012 at 7:27 am
January 26, 2012 at 12:29 pm
This is absolutely brilliant! :)
January 27, 2012 at 4:25 am

Goose bumps.Seriously.Fashion is all about personal style.The way you stare at something, the way you move your head…Long Live Miuccia.Loving Dafoe,Brody and Oldman.

Whoa, can’t believe it’s here and now. Very impressed.
