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.

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.

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.

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.
