Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn for Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2015

Burberry Spring_Summer 2015 Campaign - on embargo until 14 December 10pm GMT

Burberry unveiled its Spring/Summer 2015 campaign starring British icons Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn, which was shot by Mario Testino in London.

Aside from the burst of colours and the joyous mood of the campaign, which celebrates the collection’s bright book cover designs and hand-painted pieces, I’m delighted to see two generations of British supermodels gracing the campaign and looking better than ever.

Naomi Campbell re-joins the Burberry cast for the first time since her Burberry campaign back in 2001, whereas this is the fourth for Jourdan Dunn.
When I saw this campaign, it suddenly explained the recent run of Burberry dresses Naomi has been wearing on the red carpet.

Always marrying fashion and music, George Barnett, the ‘These New Puritans’ drummer who is the current face of the Burberry Brit Rhythm fragrance campaign, and George Le Page, the drummer of the band ‘Of Empires’, who opened and closed the Burberry Prorsum Menswear Spring/Summer 2015 show, featured in separate images for the campaign.

Customers can shop for the Burberry trench coat collection in stores globally and on Burberry.com from today, with the full Burberry Spring/Summer 2015 collections available globally from 5 January 2015.

L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds Campaign

L'Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds campaign

Blake Lively, Zoe Saldana, Jane Fonda, Laetitia Casta, Julianne Moore, Liya Kebede, Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria, Natasha Poly and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan star in the latest L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds campaign, which was shot by Norman Jean Roy.

Each of the ambassadors are dressed in white (Zoe and Liya in Elie Saab Spring 2014) with a bold red lip, but the twist is they are not all wearing the same shade.

The red lip shades were inspired by their skin tones and even their hair colour to create the perfect match.

L’Oreal is hoping to diminish the fear of choosing such a bold lip colour with the new collection.

L’Oreal make-up artist Lynsey Alexander said, “The correct red should leave you feeling empowered, confident, and sexy all at once whilst ultimately being something you choose to wear and not something that wears you. There is most definitely a perfect red for everyone and if you apply one tone and feel conscious and aware of it then it’s not the one for you.”

All of our favourite L’Oreal girls appear in the ad, with the exception of new girl Kirsten Dunst, Cheryl Cole and Sonam Kapoor.

A few of the shades are below. I’m having a strong pull towards Laetitia’s deep rouge.

Rita Ora for Roberto Cavalli Fall 2014 Ad Campaign

rita-ora-roberto-cavalli-2014-fall-campaign

Having already modelled for DKNY, Material Girl, Rimmel and Adidas, Rita Ora is now the face of Roberto Cavalli’s Fall 2014 ad campaign.

The ‘R.I.P.’ singer gave us plenty of hints that this was coming, considering there was a period when she wore nothing but Cavalli – plus she was pretty much stationed on Cavalli’s boat during the whole of Cannes this year.

In the ads, shot by Francesco Carrozzini, the singer dons the designer’s exotic prints, including a flowy dress and a cleavage-baring pantsuit, all while wearing a Marilyn Monroe-esque wig.

Clearly ecstatic about the end results, Rita said on Instagram “RitaOraForCavalli Finally it’s OUT! Madonna Mia!! I love you @robertcavalli @eva_cavalli This collaboration is a huge Honour.”

Do you share her excitement?

Beyonce Knowles In Gucci – Wild Orchid Ad Campaign

Beyonce Knowles In Gucci - Wild Orchid Ad Campaign

Beyoncé Knowles introduced her first fragrance, ‘Heat’, back in 2010, followed by a collection of editions including ‘Heat Ultimate Elixir’, ‘Heat Rush’, ‘Midnight Heat’ and ‘Heat Mrs Carter Show World Tour’.

The singer’s latest fragrance, ‘Heat Wild Orchid’, due to be released this summer, has been described as ‘an enticing, mouth-watering fragrance that emits a fierce, feminine energy’.

The notes also go onto say that it’s believed to have magical aphrodisiac qualities, which give the scent its exotic signature. Enveloped by an addictive mélange of fruits, florals and woods, it creates a captivating and memorable scent.

Michael Thompson captured the singer looking very provocative for the ad campaign, wearing a Gucci Fall 2012 black chiffon keyhole gown enriched with burgundy embellishments.

You may remember that Emma Stone wore this same gown to ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Paris Premiere and Florence Welch wore a similar long-sleeved Gucci gown to her London concert back in 2012.

Marion Cotillard lends her beauty to the Lady Dior campaign.

The French actress was captured by Jean-Baptiste Mondino with the iconic bag, wearing delicately feminine creations from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

Effortlessly gliding through the air, the Lady Dior on her arm – in fuchsia leather, brown crocodile or covered in a floral and graphic print – is an extension of who she is: timelessly elegant.
