Latest American Apparel not-porn ad features a porn actress.

(click ad for closer look)
(update: read the comments: it looks like this "model" is in fact a porn performer named Faye Valentine who has appeared in such films as Cock Pigs.)
update #2: another anon commenter says this isn't Faye Valentine, just a UCLA student who just happens to look exactly like her.)
Happy 4th weekend, beach/lake/pool goers. This is the latest amateur not-porn ad via the pants-optional Colonel. No, that there high-couture pose is so's potential customers can get the best look possible at the American Apparel nylon tricot suit. Just like this (nsfw) pose was the best option for selling t-shirts. And this topless Lohan look-a-like was the best model choice for selling men's briefs. And putting stirrup socks on an otherwise nude model was the best way to stir up stirrup sock sales. Or showing an extreme close-up of about 1/10 of a thong was the best way to advertise thongs. Or...forget it. Love your t-shirts though, Dov!
Link Haze coming later this afternoon. No posts tomorrow. Back Monday. (scanned from the back of this week's L)

Something about the angle of the photo makes her head look freakishly big.

Here's revealing my porn usage: that girl was in some actual pornography. Definitely NSFW:

Ah yes, Cock Pigs. The long awaited sequel to Dick Hogs.

@Anonymous: That's called coke-head.

But anyway, "Faye Valentine" -- oh no she did not choose that as her stage name. She doesn't look anything like the Faye Valentine that I remember.

No, no, no... this is NOT the porn girl named "Faye Valentine." This just happens to be a model that coincidentally looks aquite a bit like her. If you really examine their faces, you will see they are very different. I work for the modeling agency that cast this part-time model. She's a full-time UCLA student named Samantha Robinson.

I wonder if hiring models and photographers marks the end of an era for AA?

Sort of settles the question from the Thursday, June 19, 2008 blog: are freckles hot? I'd say, heck yeah!

I'm anxiously waiting for the third in the trilogy, Cock Roosters.

I call complete and total bullshit on Anon 1:50. The freckles under her eyes (moving outward from the tear ducts) are the same in this pic and many, many other pics of Faye Reagan/Valentine. So is the big freckle in the middle of her neck, right below where the two muscles converge.

If you're legit, tell us the name of your agency. If you're legit, tell us YOUR name.

This is definitely Faye Reagan / Valentine (she did a name change part way through her career.) She is very proud of this ad and hopes to have more in the future. The person from UCLA is wrong, sorry to say. And if you do have a look alike tell her her time is up. :-)

It's definitely here. This pic is SFW unless your work prohibits face pictures.

shameless plug:

This AA girl is very unique. She caught my eye on the back page of the paper and I've had it upside down (so I can look at her) all week.

Actually, the whole AA model series has been an interesting campaign, but this girl has something special going on.

I love faye. That should be a poster

That's definitely Faye Valentine/Reagan. I don't see why everybody makes such a big fucking deal about AA. It's just a company/store. Try fighting internet porn before you fight slightly provocative advertisements. If the clothing is sexy, let them model it sexy. Fuck anti-AA people make me so angry. I'll admit it's pretty played out and cliche by now, but why do you give a fuck?

...because Charney's sexually harasses his female employees? Do you read the news? If you did, you'd notice the multiple law suits pending against him. Also, these ads badly demean women, there's no "art" involved here, it's just bland exploitation.

How did you happen to find that photo? I've been looking for a page that has American Apparel, and Faye Reagan/Valentine after seeing an ad on Facebook.

Please help... thanks!

If you have any doubt that this is Faye Reagan, lovely porn "actress," consult this link. http://www.tube8.com/teen/faye-valentine-covermyface/6750/

ok. not that it's not settled, but its her. initial reaction: AA can't hire her!! she's a BIG FUCKING DEAL in porn. google "faye valentine" look for "iameighteen". also, check out ftvgirls.

2nd reaction: it's good for AA if it drives male traffic to thier site. a fantasy girl has crossed over into a different spankzone- clothing catalog, online or otherwise.

Anonymous 6:22 here again. There are multiple photosets of the same girl on the frontpage of AA. It might not even be her. But, copyranter, I think you have a closeminded viewpoint. American Apparel's visual aesthetic is so much milder than porn it's incredible. Personally, their advertising has no effect on me since I have been a customer there since before ever seeing an ad of theirs. The fact of the matter, is, you are over reacting. The lawsuits don't even seem legit, they're probably just gold-diggers, and in any case, it's not like he raped anyone. If he fucked some of his models/employees, it was consensual. Any bitch that says she was coerced is a fucking amoral whore. Girls fuck guys if they want to fuck them, or if they are being physically forced.

What the fuck? It's not exploiting women, if they're getting fucking paid and agree to it and enjoy it. You, copyranter, are an ignorant fucking dumbass, just like practically everybody else in the advertising industry. Oh, and please, I would love to see you 'moderate my comment'. If you don't approve it, you're a fucking pussy.

"anonymous" below who says this is not porn star Faye Valentine is clearly mistaken. Believe me, she is one and the same.
