Sharapova Scores with Cole Haan


We heard today that Maria Sharapova will be the face of the Cole Haan 2009 Spring advertising campaign.

She was photographed by Martyn Thompson for the ad– the first ever featuring a Nike athlete representing Cole Haan.

Allow me to comment on how remarkably simple and pure (bland?) this image is.

When I think of it, it probably will appeal to Cole Haan fans.

You’ll be seeing Maria’s ad debut in the March issue of Vanity Fair as well as on billboards and bus shelters in the Meatpacking District.
