First Look: Blake Lively For Chanel Mademoiselle

WWD has unveiled the first picture of Blake Lively’s ad campaign for Chanel Mademoiselle.

The ad campaign was shot by Karl Lagerfeld and will break in a range of weekly and monthly titles this week and next, and is slated to run through early June.

I can’t wait to see more from this campaign, but at this point I feel slightly disappointed.

I was hoping to be wowed, but this is Blake as we know Blake.

I was hoping for some kind of transformation but there is nothing new here.

Christina Hendricks For Vivienne Westwood Jewelry

Christina Hendricks was recently announced as the face of Vivienne Westwood’s Palladium jewelry collection.

The ‘Mad Men’ star, who surprisingly has never worn Vivienne Westwood on the red carpet is seen in the “Get A Life” campaign wearing the collection which was inspired by nature.

We see the gorgeous redhead showcasing the Pagan Heart necklace with acorn earrings whilst wearing a teal off-the-shoulder dress.

The second piece is an amazing gold Oak Leaf tiara worn with a purple Westwood frock.

The collection will be available this month at Vivienne Westwood boutiques in London and LA with the pieces will ranging from $445 to $900.

I’ll guess the next time we see Christina on the red carpet she will be showing off her famous hourglass curves in a Vivienne Westwood design.

Burberry have just released their second Spring 2011 ad campaign featuring British model Jourdan Dunn wearing Burberry Biker Leathers which was shot by Mario Testino.

Jourdan makes a spectacular comeback after taking a break from modelling to have her first child.

She stars in the campaign alongside Sacha M’Baye which was shot on the beautiful Brighton Beach in the UK.

Click here to see the rest of the campaign plus a behind the scenes video.

Yesterday Rachel Bilson wore one of the Burberry Biker jackets when she arrived at the “Waiting for Forever” LA Premiere.

The biker jacket added a rock chic edge to her sweet ruffled dress.

Other stars who’ve fallen for the edgier Burberry chic bikers are Alexa Chung and Cara Delevigne.

Versace Spring 2011 Ad Campaign

January Jones appears in the Versace Spring 2011 campaign for bags, shoes, sunglasses and optical frames, but it’s Abbey Lee Kershaw who models for the ready-to-wear collection.

The Australian model was shot for this ad campaign by Mario Testino.

We all know that Donatella loves blondes, so could this be the reason Abbey dyed her hair platinum blonde for the Spring 2011 runway shows?

The campaign also features platinum blonde male models Malthe Lund Madsen and Victor Nylander in leather pants.

But they fad into the background as Abbey stands out wearing bright colours and fringed Mediterranean inspired prints.

Leighton Meester For Missoni Spring 2011

At the end of last year Leighton Meester was announced at the face of Missoni’s Spring 2011 campaign.

Today on Vogue.it, they release the first picture of the campaign. The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress looks gorgeous in a printed Missoni dress with a sheer trim.

I love this picture of her on a rocking horse. She injects so much fun and playful energy into the brand.

I was initially skeptical about this pairing, but upon seeing this picture it clear why Missoni picked Leighton to be the face of their brand.

Leighton has long been a fan of Missoni. Here are her Missoni red carpet moments.
