Givenchy recently released their fall 2014 ad campaign and now Riccardo Tisci has the models dance in a new video for Givenchy. Kendall Jenner, Julia Nobis, Mariacarla Boscono,the Bryant Brothers, and Jamie Bochert dance to tunes by the Martinez Brothers. The collection is full of natural earth tones and neutrals with some animal print and jewel tones mixed in.
Songtress Erykah Badu models Givenchy’s Spring campaign in high style. I think this is a good look for her and the brand. Designer Riccardo Tisci told Style.com that he considers her a style icon and is one of the most stylish women he has ever met. Tisci leaked the photo on his notorious Instagram page. I really suggest you follow him on Instagram for a hug behind the scenes look into his life. Note that some of the photos are suggestive, like the one where he hinted at sleeping with singer Frank Ocean.
Tisci had this to say in the Style.com article about his model choice, “What I want to do with my advertising campaign is spread the love. Already now it’s been three seasons that I’ve been using people that express something—they are great artists, or beautiful women, or stylish women, or models that I really believe in. It’s kind of a family portfolio.”
The Spring 2014 ad campaign features a collection with a heavy mix of Asian and African influences. I thin Ms. Badu is the perfect model for this campaign since she already dresses like this anyway, and like Tisci says, “Erykah, she’s an icon—come on!” Photo from Style.com.
Malaika Firth was photographed by Steven Meisel for Prada’s new Fall/Winter 2013 ad campaign. Malaika Firth is the first black model to front an ad campaign for the Italian fashion house since Naomi Campbell was the face 19 years ago in 1994! Wow! This is a big honor. Prada usually only has one black model in each fashion show if that, so this is really big. Photo from Models of Color.
Georgia May Jagger looks really badass in the new Hudson Jeans ads. She gives a hot rock star edge to them photos. I wonder where she gets that from? Hmm… The ad campaign has an Instagram feel to it and also stars her brother James Jagger and her boyfriend Josh McLellan. [SOURCE]
Kate Moss stars and looks gorgeous in the new Stuart Weitzman Spring 2013. The international campaign was shot by Mario Testino. “I had a great time shooting the Stuart Weitzman campaign and I’m so happy to be face of the brand this season,” said Kate Moss. “Working with Mario Testino is always fun and it was wonderful meeting Stuart on set.” Photos from Stuart Weitzman.
Singer Pink is the new CoverGirl! Check out this pic that the singer leaked on her Instagram page. She looks gorgeous! The orange and pink look great with her skintone. The blue eyeshadow and blazer really go with the other colors very well.
Jacquie “Tajah” Murdock is 82 years old and she is starring in a brand new Lanvin ad campaign. She used to be a dancer at the Apollo Theater in Harlem in the 40s and did all kinds of cool things in her life. She is absolutely beautiful. Check out her interview on Fashionista right now! It is so amazing! Photo from Fashionista.
Perry Ellis chose three models instead of one for the fall 2011 ad campaign. The men, Arthur Kulkov, Thiago Santos, and Parker Gregory all look great in this ad campaign. which shows them at slightly different angles. The ad campaign launches mid-August with print ads and videos on the Perry Ellis website and Perry Ellis YouTube page.
Fourteen year old actress Hailee Steinfeld’s Miu Miu ad looks great. Shot by Bruce Weber, it has a vintage feel to it. I love the ad and wish nothing for the best for Hailee. I saw True Grit with my dad and knew she was going to be a star. Her style choices are great too. All you have to do is Google her red carpet pics. I think it is great that teen actresses are getting into fashion these days. Remember when teen stars dressed like this. Yuck! Anywho, what do you think of the ad? Photo from BlackBook.
Here is Angelina Jolie in the New Annie Leibovitz shot Louis Vuitton Core Values Campaign. It was shot in Jolie’s favorite place, and the country where she adopted her first son, Cambodia. They say she shot the ads in her own clothes and without makeup, but she still looks airbrushed to me. Thoughts? Photo from WWD.
Crystal Renn is the new face of Jimmy Choo. She has been getting job after job. I think she looks great in these pictures. I do think it is weird that she made such a fuss last year about not losing weight and then she went and lost weight, but whatever. That is her prerogative. I am just glad that she is getting work because she is an amazing model. Check out the rest of the pictures here at The Fashion Spot.
This week American Apparel has launched a new set of NSFW illustrated ads online and elsewhere. I started noticing the ads yesterday on other blogs and in the sidebars of other websites. The ads mark a stark change from the old ads that were very 1970s porn throwbacks that looked like something Terry Richardson would have shot.
A few months ago Dov Charney started presenting a new ad campaign featuring him and two of his hipster, sexy lady employees sitting on a bed talking about how the company was changing. Those ads were not illustrated, but shot with a camera. He also started to move his company from 70s discotheque wear to 70s preppy country club wear. Now these new illustrated ads might be another sign of the change that is supposedly coming to American Apparel.
If you look at the ads, they look the same as any other American Apparel ad campaign. The only difference is that they are drawn and not shot. Both ads show scantily clad ladies modeling American Apparel. One ad is even more shocking because it shows a woman’s unshaven bush, but then again it is American Apparel. We can’t be too surprised, shocked, or awed by this.
Don’t forget to shop The Fat and Skinny Shop for sizes 8-20, L-3X!
The Calvin Klein ads have leaked and they are steamy, hot, sexy, and oh so cool. I love them. The models are very striking and dramatic. Even thought they are shot by different photographers, I still think they go well together.
