Lana Del Rey For H&M Autumn 2012

As we know, Lana Del Rey, one of the biggest names in music, will be the face and voice of H&M this autumn.

Here are some additional images from her print campaign shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

Lana wears a mix of pieces from the H&M autumn collection ranging from a green sweater to printed leggings, a tweed biker jacket, wool faux-fur-trimmed coat and tweed figure-hugging faux-leather-trimmed dress.

In each shot her hair is styled in her now signature beehive bouffant.

I particularly love the printed pieces and the beige-embellished skirts. The wine-coloured leather-look pants caught my eye too.

Kate Beckinsale In H&M and Diane von Furstenberg – RTE TV Studios

Kate Beckinsale continued to promo her new movie ‘Total Recall’ yesterday in Dublin, Ireland, where she was spotted heading to the RTE TV studios for a round of interviews.

The British star looked effortlessly chic in a peach H&M top paired with an aqua-blue Diane von Furstenberg pencil skirt.

This is the perfect outfit to showcase her summer style.

Her chic colour-block look was styled with nude Christian Louboutin spike ‘Pigalle’ heels and gold Melinda Maria earrings.

I have to say this is one of my favourite looks from Kate so far.

You can buy Kate’s Christian Loubotuin ‘Pigalle’ spike nude pumps from Net-A-Porter.com.

Lana Del Rey For H&M

After weeks of speculation, H&M have confirmed Lana Del Rey as the face of their upcoming autumn campaign, in addition to their holiday ads.

In this sneak peek at the campaign, which debuts in September, we see the singer wearing a pale pink angora sweater and nude jeans with her now trademark bouffant and cat-eyes.

H&M’s PR manager Chloe Bowers released the following statement:

“We were looking for a style icon and singer to model our autumn/winter 2012-13 collection and Lana Del Rey was the perfect choice. We think she shows our fall fashion in a very inspiring way. The theme of the campaign is a modern and feminine woman with a soft attitude. Curves and waist are important in autumn’s silhouette.”

Aside from these sultry photos, Del Rey has also recorded the song ‘Blue Velvet’ for the collection’s commercial.

H&M adds, “The mood is very LA noir.”

Who Wore H&M Red Carpet Conscious Collection Better? Michelle Jenner or Shu Qi

Back in March, Michelle Jenner opted to wear a dress from the H&M Red Carpet Conscious Collection to the photocall of her latest movie ‘Extraterrestre’ in Madrid, Spain.

As it was a photocall, she opted to wear the look without the additional skirt, styling it with purple Louboutins to match the embroidery on her dress.

Shu Qi wore the same dress with the longer skirt under the shorter skirt when presenting on stage at the 31st Hong Kong Film Awards in Hong Kong back in April.

The beautiful actress paired her dress with Jimmy Choo heels and gold earrings.

Even though I’m not crazy about the longer skirt over the shorter skirt, I adore Shu’s shoe choice, so she wins for me.

Who Wore H&M Conscious Collection Better? Lena Mayer-Landrut or Ginnifer Goodwin

Lena Mayer-Landrut attended the Lola German Film Awards 2012, held at the Friedrichstadt-Palast in Berlin back in April, wearing a gown from the H&M Conscious Collection.

This light-grey gown made of silk and organic cotton and featuring a sleeveless bodice and voluminous skirt with asymmetrical raw-edge ruffles was styled only with a ruby ring by the Germany singer.

The very next day Ginnifer Goodwin wore the same gown to the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington.

She opted to separate the textured bodice from the ruffled skirt with a black leather belt.

Bulgari jewels and a Stark black-and-gold ‘Seductress’ clutch embellished with crystals completed her look.

The gown totally overwhelmed Ginnifer. It’s my least favourite look from her to date, so Lena wins for me.
