Sprinkled throughout W’s November issue are some eye-catching ads featuring Linda Evangelista shilling shampoo, Joan Rivers (airbrushed into near oblivion) hawking furs and Anna Dello Russo slathered in anti-aging cream. These and six other tongue-in-cheek fauxmmercials were shot by Steven Meisel and styled by Edward Enninful, creating the kind of consumer confidence that only a toddler in a tiara and a naked drag queen can foster.
