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.

January Jones For Versace Spring 2011 Ad Campaign

January Jones features in Versace’s new Spring/Summer 2011 advertising campaign which was shot by Mario Testino.

My pick for brand ambassador for Versace would’ve been Blake Lively, but after seeing these subtly sensual pictures I will say that Versace made the perfect choice.

January showcases the new Versace accessories with her sophisticated beauty. It’s so easy to forget she’s naked in these pictures.

Donatella Versace said: “I am always on the lookout for the next Versace blonde… and in January I feel I have found a perfect Versace woman for the twenty-first century. She is chic and elegant but deeply sensual too – it is a ‘dramatic’ combination.”

The black and white photographs and hair and makeup reference the spirit of the Sixties, which is appropriate as January is best known for her role in “Mad Men”.

The advertising campaign will feature bags, shoes, sunglasses and optical frames from the Versace Spring 2011 collection.

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?”
