Madonna For Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010

You’ll remember a few weeks ago we saw Madonna with a man old enough to be her son strolling through Harlem, New York shooting the ad campaign for Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2010 collection.

The campaign shot by Steven Klein follows same theme from the Spring 2010 campaign which also features Madonna.

I’ve gotta admit, I was very surprised at the results from these beautiful black & white pictures.  I much prefer them to the Spring campaign  as the mood isn’t so sombre.

Madonna actually looks amazing – yes I’m aware the pictures are heavily photoshopped – but she does.

The campaign was inspired by the Italian Masterpieces of Cinematography and Madonna’s character is inspired Anna Magnani, who is said to be her icon.

The images reference an imaginary movie, shot in a non specific Italian city describing the beauty and simple family life of an ordinary woman with her different roles as mother, daughter, granddaughter, cousin, and sister.

Madonna is portrayed in scenes such as shopping in a street market with her beloved son – similar to the Magnani character in “Mamma Roma” – enjoying the Sunday family lunch, and when her granny is sewing her skirt seam.

The new fall winter Dolce & Gabbana campaign represents a woman in a more human dimension underlining her natural beauty.

Are you in love with this campaign as much as I am?

Prada Fall 2010 Ad Campaign

Models are multi-tasking these days.

Angela Lindvall appears in the ad teaser for Prada’s Fall 2010 singing “Fever”.

She actually has quite a nice voice.

The full campaign below features Mathias Bergh, Sigrid, Valerija Kelava, Daria Strokous, Clément Chabernaud, Kim Dall’armi, Mark Cox and Miranda Kerr alongside Anglea.

The steamy campaign featuring clothes, bags and eyewear was shot by Steven Meisel.

I do like the ads, but there is a lot going on in some of the shots making it hard to focus or pay attention on one thing.

I found my self playing “Where’s Miranda?”

Natalia Vodianova, Karen Elson and Christy Turlington For Louis Vuitton Fall 2010

Natalia Vodianova, Christy Turlington and Karen Elson are the gorgeous models featured in the Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 ad campaign.

The ads shot by Steven Meisel and styled by Karl Temper feature the icon models wearing some of my favourite looks from the Fall 2010 collection including those bow fronted courts.

Look out for these ads in your August glossies.

Despite not seeing the other Fall 2010 ad campaigns, I’m going to say this is my favourite.

Vanessa Paradis For Chanel Coco Cocoon

Vanessa Paradis is the face of Chanel.

Always has and always will be in my eyes.

We’ve seen her front various campaigns for Chanel over the years – most recently Chanel’s Rouge Coco – but now she’s replace Lily Allen as the face of Chanel’s Coco Cocoon bags.

Karl Lagerfeld shot the campaign showing the French star looking très chic wearing chunky knit caps with a sheer shirt and black silk camisole.

These images show Vanessa’s style, personality and inimitable allure.

If ever there was someone who could force me into liking this bag collection it’s Vanessa Paradis.

To see the full range of bags and a behind scenes video of Vanessa’s shoot with Uncle Karl go to coco-cocoon.chanel.com.
