First Look: Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 Ad Campaign

Everyone was blown away by Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 “Plato’s Atlantis” collection.

From the vivid colours and digital prints, to the “how did they walk in those Armadillo heels?” we were all fascinated.

Thankfully Lily Cole, Noot Seer, Daphne Guinness, Lady GaGa and Camilla Belle have all done justice to these magnificent pieces from this amazing collection, but only Guinness and GaGa have been brave enough to walk in those heels.

We all knew that the ad campaign was going to be equally captivating, and here’s a first look at the Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 ad campaign which features uber model Raquel Zimmermann.

You can barely make out Raquel who is covered in 30 snakes which are as colourful as her McQueen jumpsuit.

I can’t wait to see more of this campaign which was shot by Nick Knight.

Georgia May Jagger For Versace Spring 2010

Versace has announced that Georgia May Jagger is the face of its Spring/Summer 2010 campaign.

She was recently voted Model of the Year at The British Fashion Awards.

The campaign was shot by Mario Testino in London at the beginning of November 2009 and will be showcased in editorials from February 2010.

Donatella Versace said of Georgia: “She’s smart, a strong personality, beautiful, full of energy… and with that natural star quality, I adore her! She’s perfect for this collection – A real Versace girl.”

It looks like Georgia is set to follow in her mother’s footsteps, as Jerry Hall also modelled for the label over twenty years ago!

Georgina is currently the face of Hudson Jeans and Rimmel London.

She will be taking over from Gisele Bundchen as the new face of Versace. Wow – those are some beautiful boots she’ll have to fill!

I have been drooling over the whole of this collection for some time now and especially adore the thigh skimming skirts, which Georgina certainly has the legs for.

Donatella took her inspiration for the Spring 2010 collection from Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland”.

Personally, I love the shots and think that Georgia is a perfect ambassador for such a vibrant, sexy brand.

What do you think?

Emma Watson For Burberry Spring 2010

Emma Watson reprised her role as the face of Burberry for their Spring 2010 ad campaign, which was shot by Mario Testino.

She looks fabulous wearing a selection of pieces, with the focus seemingly on the sexy new trench coats as well as the classics trenches.

Emma appears in the campaign alongside her younger brother 17 year old Alex Watson.

I love this campaign. I think Emma is the perfect brand ambassador for the younger crowd that Burberry appear to be aiming this campaign towards.

I LOVE the twisted pieces.

The only criticism I have is that the styling feels much the same as the Fall 2009 campaign.

Claudia Schiffer For Chanel Spring 2010

Back in October Claudia Schiffer and designer Karl Lagerfeld were seen in Buenos Aires shooting the Chanel Spring 2010 on location in Argentina.

The picture above is the first picture of the campaign to be released, but you can see from the candids below, we have a lot more to look forward to.

If you were expecting the campaign to follow the barnyard feel of the Spring 2010 presentation, you will surprised that this campaign has a latin flair.

The Spring looks were accessorized with wide-brimmed hats, boots – no clogs – and of course the classic quilted bags.

This campaign also features models Freja Beha and Baptiste Giabiconi.

Kate Moss For Topshop Fall 2009

The Kate Moss / Topshop collabo doesn’t look to be ending any time soon, in fact it seems to get stronger with each collection.

The Fall 2009 collection feels a lot more mature than previous collections.

You can expect the usual nods to vintage glamour and rock n’ roll chic, but the cutesy tea-dresses and heart print dresses have been replaced with investment pieces that have a tougher edge.

The collection includes a biker inspired leather jumpsuit, tailored jackets, sweaters, glittering party dresses, sheer blouses, strapless dresses, faux fur coats, sequin playsuits and many other exciting pieces.

The collection is due to go on sale August 27 in the UK.

Lily Allen For Chanel Bags Fall 2009

After what seems like years of waiting, the pictures of Lily Allen for Chanel bags Fall 2009 campaign have finally surfaced.

The new Chanel handbag line is called “Coco Cocoon” which launches in October.

It’s a collection of reversible, lightweight nylon and lambskin bags in black, ecru, navy, or beige. Turn them inside out, and you’ve got the same tote, overnight duffel, or hanging garment bag in quilted garnet—the original lining colour of the house’s classic 2.55 bag.

As much as I didn’t particular like the idea of Lily Allen being the face of Chanel, she does make these hideous bags look really cute in the ad campaign.

I like the slight reference to “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”, plus I sense a bit of Victoria Beckham too.

Lily is still very much Lily in these ads. They haven’t tried to make her someone she’s not which I was initially worried about.

The pictures below in full colour paint a very ugly picture. Sorry Uncle Karl, but me no likey.

Scarlett Johansson: The New Face Of Mango

Scarlett Johansson was officially announced as the new face of Mango during a press conference in Madrid yesterday.

She takes over from Penelope Cruz and her sister Monica, who I thought were irreplaceable as the face of the brand.

At the big reveal Scarlett wore a blue satin top and a black high-waisted skirt with a black sash which is available to buy from Mangoshop.com.

The actress is also the face of Dolce & Gabbana’s make-up line.

In those ads she has a 50s glam look, but these ads – shot by Mario Sorrenti – have more of a 80s punk feel.
