Nicole Kidman for Jimmy Choo Cruise 2014

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.

Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos for Miu Miu Resort 2014

lea-seydoux-miu-miu-1

The co-stars of ‘Blue Is The Warmest Colour’, which won the Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or, Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos, clearly have such great chemistry (as we witnessed during Cannes Film Festival) that I’m not surprised that Miu Miu has snapped up the pair for their Resort 2014 ad campaign.

While this is a first campaign for 19-year-old newcomer Adèle, Léa has starred in campaigns for Prada (Candy and Resort 2012), Levi and Rag & Bone.

Against a soft-pink background Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin capture their candid chemistry as they are casually reclined across each other on the floor wearing Miu Miu garb that is striking in colour, rich in embellishment and emboldened with prints.

This is a very successful campaign as I am buying everything they are selling, especially the accessories – metaphorically speaking.

Jennifer Lawrence For Miss Dior Fall 2013

Miss Dior AW2013

Jennifer Lawrence works an au naturel look for the Miss Dior Fall 2013 ad campaign which was released this week.

This is Jennifer’s second campaign for the French brand since being named as the face of Miss Dior back in 2012. On this occasion the vibe of the campaign feels more relaxed compared to the couture feel of the Spring campaign, as we see Jennifer wearing a grey wool Dior coat and minimal makeup while modelling red, black and cream Miss Dior leather quilted chain-strap bags designed by Raf Simons with a single silver earring.

Jennifer’s relationship with the brand continues to go from strength to strength despite many differing opinions about her suitability for the brand. She has worn Dior on several occasions, including the Met Gala, Cannes Film Festival, and most of award season, which ended with her taking a graceful tumble as she collected her Best Actress award at the Oscars.

Gisele Bündchen for H&M Fall 2013

Unknown

Back in May Gisele Bundchen Instagrammed a picture of herself on a shoot in London; it turns out that the shot was the Fall 2013 ad campaign for H&M.

This is not the first time the Brazilian beauty, who is currently the highest-paid model in the world, has fronted a campaign for the brand; she was also the Spring 2011 campaign model.

Lachlan Bailey captured the exotic beauty wearing turtleneck knit sweaters, long royal-blue utilitarian pea coats with big gold buttons, beige skinny jeans, cosy sweaters, military hats, army-green skinny jeans with abstract stitching, blazers worn with blouses, a shearling vest, and an olive-green silk blouse.

The model is not only the face of the campaign, but she is also the voice. She will also be singing in the campaign, which includes TV and online commercials alongside print and billboard advertising and will debut on September 12.

Gisele’s version of “All Day And All Of The Night”, originally by The Kinks, will be available for free download from hm.com, and will also be on iTunes, raising money for UNICEF. For every single download from iTunes, H&M will make a donation to UNICEF to enable the purchase of vaccines for children.

“I am so excited to be the face of H&M this autumn. I love the street-style look, and that we can raise funds for a good cause. I hope everyone downloads my song!” says Gisele.

I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to spend the morning than viewing pictures from David Beckham’s new campaign, set in an old-style sports changing room and full of old East London atmosphere, for his Bodywear for H&M Autumn 2013 collection.

The collection includes raglan-sleeve jerseys and henleys in athletic greys, alongside grey vests, a three-pack of grey trunks plus loungewear and nightwear pyjamas.

This Bodywear collection goes on sale tomorrow in the men’s departments of H&M stores and online.

Michelle Williams For Louis Vuitton

louis-vuitton-michelle-williams-02

Michelle Williams was captured by Peter Lindbergh for Louis Vuitton’s latest campaign highlighting their new bags – the ‘W’ and the ‘Capucines’ – wearing a look from the fashion house’s Fall 2013 collection.

The pretty blonde actress was given a dramatic makeover by hairstylist Sam McKnight and makeup artist Stéphane Marais, who gave her pixie crop a spiky twist and brought out her delicate features with dark eyes and a bold blood-red lip colour.

Michelle is no stranger to wearing Louis Vuitton on the red carpet; the red strapless LV gown she wore to the 2012 Oscars is the most notable.

Look out for this campaign, which is due to break in September.

Rita Ora for Material Girl Fall 2013 Ad Campaign

Rita Ora for Material Girl Fall 2013

Madonna and daughter Lola unveiled their Material Girl Fall 2013 ad campaign featuring Rita Ora.

For the back-to-school season, Rita takes to the streets of London, starring in her debut fashion campaign, ‘Material Girl Hits London.’

Clad in Material Girl apparel, footwear and accessories, Rita was photographed at iconic London locales such as Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the London Eye and atop a double decker bus.

The collection will be available exclusively at Macy’s and macys.com in the United States.

I don’t know about you, but I feel like this campaign should’ve gone to someone much younger.

I love the spirit and energy of the campaign, but not the casting.

L’Oreal ‘Collection Privee by Color Riche’ Ad Campaign

L'Oreal 'Collection Privee by Color Riche' Ad Campaign

Actresses Freida Pinto, Julianne Moore, Jane Fonda, Fan Bingbing and Eva Longoria pose with models Liya Kebede, Inès de La Fressange and Doutzen Kroes for L’Oreal’s ‘Collection Privee by Color Riche’ campaign.

Captured by Norman Jean Roy, this must have been taken during Cannes Film Festival when all the ladies were providing the eye candy on the carpet while fulfilling their ambassadorial roles.

Sadly Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are not featured in this ad.

The women all wore black dresses, or black blouses and skirts for the shoot.

While it’s hard to identify most, the one which stands out is Fan Bingbing in her Ulyana Sergeenko Couture gown thanks to the distinctive neckline.

Click on the image above for a closer look.

Update: Doutzen is wearing a Gucci Spring 2006 gown.
