Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2012 Ad Campaign

I have been eagerly awaiting the Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 ad campaign which was finally released yesterday.

David Sims captured Finnish model Suvi Kopoen sporting the same platinum blonde coif that the models showcased when they took to the runway back in March.

Between the futuristic origami set design, the metallic visor, the exaggerated shapes and heel-less shoes, Suvi looks like a beautiful creature from outer space.

Mila Kunis For Christian Dior’s Spring 2012 Ad Campaign

Mila Kunis takes over from Natalie Portman as the face of Christian Dior.

The ‘Black Swan’ star fronts the Spring 2012 ad campaign which is set to debut worldwide this month.

Though she admits to being new to the fashion game, and having an off-duty wardrobe that consists mostly of tees and jeans, Mila tells that she’s excited to glam up her look in Dior.

“I find that Dior is an incredibly grounded house. I always thought what Dior does is so sophisticated, feminine and beautiful.”

On their part, Dior is just as pleased to be working with Mila. Delphine Arnault, deputy general manager at Dior, tells WWD, “Mila Kunis is a very talented young actress; she embodies the true modern woman. Her performance in ‘Black Swan’ was remarkable. She is very gifted.” She also goes on to say that the brand is looking forward to having a long relationship with the actress.

I’m sure you are as excited as I am to see Mila step on the red carpet as the official face of Dior. Read More…

Dolce & Gabbana Jewellery: A Precious Passion

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have introduced their first jewelry collection.

Using the most exquisite materials – tri-colour gold, rubies, sapphires and pearls – they created an 80-piece range of extravagant jewels that are subtle and understated but always rooted in the font of one of the designers’ main sources of inspiration: Sicily.

There are the beautifully fashioned hand-engraved keys, coins, hearts, hexes, and horseshoes that jangle on the rich gold of charm bracelets and necklaces, or dangle alone from a ring as a pendant.

Also, a representation of the designers’ soul: jewelled crosses, black jade rosaries and delicate filigree ceramic icons held by precious Byzantine inspiration chains.

Bianca Balti, who also appears in the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 ad campaign alongside Monica Bellucci, stars in the seductive Dolce & Gabbana Jewellery campaign which was shot by Giampaolo Sgura.

You can see more of the collection on Dolce & Gabbana Jewellery. See more from the ad campaign below. Read More…

Gisele Bundchen For Salvatore Ferragamo’s Spring 2012 Ad Campaign

Gisele Bundchen smoulders with the Caribbean deep-blue sea in the backdrop striking her best supermodel pose for the Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2012 ad campaign.

Mikael Jansson shot the campaign in Jamaica which also co-stars male model Noah Mills.

The setting is perfect for the brand’s colourful spring offerings.

Despite the fact that Gisele only walked for the Givenchy Spring 2012 presentation, she has racked up three campaigns so far, including Versace and Givenchy.

Massimiliano Giornetti, creative director of Ferragamo, said, “I had no doubt about who to feature in this campaign.”

Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2012 Ad Campaign

The Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 ad campaign featuring Monica Bellucci and Bianca Balti was inspired by Italian beauty and its female cinema star icons: Anna Magnani, Monica Vitti and especially Sofia Loren, women endowed with authentic charm and who personify seduction and comfort at the same time.

Monica plays the matriarch of family decked out in her trademark all black, whilst Bianca adds some colour to the campaign wearing vibrant prints and a blue lace dress.

The images, which portray scenes such as a godson’s communion, afternoons at the beach, Sundays at home, family parties, the first boyfriend, and tender moments with the children, highlight the values of Dolce & Gabbana: Italian spirit, tradition, family, love, passion, joie de vivre and the ability to capture the modernity of the past and to render it contemporary.

Giampaolo Sgura captured the cast in Portofino. Read More…
