MG Icon, the joint venture between Iconix Brand Group, Inc. and Madonna, in partnership with Macy's announced it will continue its association with actress and television personality Kelly Osbourne for the fall 2011 Material Girl marketing campaign titled, "MG + NYC." The multi-media marketing campaign will debut in September issues of fashion and lifestyle magazines such as PEOPLE StyleWatch, Nylon, Seventeen, Teen Vogue and Cosmopolitan as well as online, outdoor, in-store and in Macy's marketing collateral.
"We have both enjoyed working with Kelly and are thrilled to have her on board for the launch of the Fall 2011 collection," commented Madonna and her daughter Lola.
"I'm really enjoying being the face of Material Girl. I love being part of a brand for girls and having the opportunity to work with Lola who has an amazing fashion instinct. Added to that is the fact that Madonna has been a big influence on my style over the years," stated Kelly Osbourne.
The campaign creative represents the quintessential New York City scene with Osbourne being photographed for a series of print ads in Times Square, Rockefeller Plaza, Soho, the West Village, Little Italy and Chinatown. The background includes the world famous Empire State Building, as well as a more playful feel with Osbourne on top of a double-decker tourist bus riding down Fifth Avenue.
Dari Marder, chief marketing officer, Iconix Brand Group, commented, "Kelly has been an amazing partner for Material Girl; she has truly embraced the brand and our consumers have reciprocated." Marder added, "The essence of Material Girl is all about your own personal style and individuality. The new fall campaign, 'MG+NYC' reflects all the different sides of our Material Girl, from uptown to downtown."
