Red Carpet Fashion Awards

In the latest Miu Miu video shot by Inez and Vinoodh, they dive into a techno interpretation of the Spring 2014 collection, starring a new generation of Hollywood talents (Lupita Nyong’o, Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen and Bella Heathcote).

With video game speed and sounds, we discover the four actresses’ imaginary bedrooms through the liquid slide projections created by overlaying the footage with magnificent patterns of the Miu Miu prints.

Miu Miu Spring 2014 ad campaign (2)

Miu Miu’s Spring 2014 campaign features a few of our favourite Hollywood starlets.

Lupita Nyong’o, who has been wearing a lot of Prada/Miu Miu lately; Elle Fanning, who wears the same dress we recently saw on Miu Miu’s Resort 2014 campaign girl; Lea Seydoux; Elizabeth Olsen, who sports super-long locks for the campaign; and Bella Heathcote, who is totally unrecognisable.

Apart from the mix of young talent, I love this campaign’s vintage-inspired styling. I have my eye on those Courrèges coats, cute thigh-high pop socks, and Olsen’s tan suede lace-up boots.

Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shot the campaign back in November, just as the buzz around Lupita was bubbling.

“The actresses’ poses, full of personality, convey their diverse points of view, effortlessly translating the new spirit of the Miu Miu woman”, said Miuccia Prada.

Rihanna for Balmain

Balmain unveiled the first pictures of Rihanna as the face of the French label’s Spring 2014 ad campaign this morning.

As someone who always gets first dibs on the collection, this should come as no surprise.

The Bajan singer was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for the campaign, posing seductively in a denim chain-accented piece and a pink houndstooth look with similar chain accents, both styled by her personal stylist Mel Ottenberg.

Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing was positively gushing about casting Rihanna for this campaign, telling WWD “In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world. When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete.”

Back in September, Belstaff announced David Beckham as the face of the brand’s 2014 global advertising campaign.

The first picture was released this week and, as you would expect, David looks hotter than ever.

Photographed by Peter Lindbergh, the campaign was shot on location in Buckinghamshire, England and sees David leading his band of brothers travelling across the English countryside.

This might just be the first campaign starring David Beckham in which he is fully clothed; usually he is in his underwear. Not that I’m complaining.

Nicole Kidman for Jimmy Choo Cruise 2014

Following on from the Fall 2013 campaign, Nicole Kidman had been tapped by Jimmy Choo again for the Cruise 2014 campaign which also features a very interesting behind-the-scenes video.

Proving she’s a girl after my own heart, she says, “Tall women shy away from wearing shoes, but I don’t. I like the luxury of putting on something high because I feel sexier.”
Amen.

Channelling iconic French actress Brigitte Bardot with the same bouffant hairstyle, the actress reveals that her favourite Choo from this collection is called ‘Sunday’, which is ironically the same name as her daughter, Sunday Rose Kidman-Urban.

In the print ads Nicole dominates the scene, silhouetted against a dramatic ocean scape, wearing the ‘Xenia’ strappy sandals whilst clutching the ‘Anna’ python bag.

Nicole does an amazing job of portraying a sultry summer goddess with her sun-burnished skin and sea salt tousled hair in a relaxed but provocative pose.
