Britney Spears for Kenzo La Collection Memento N°2

Kenzo have just announced that Britney Spears – the princess of pop – stars in their KENZO La Collection Memento N°2 campaign.

The singer turns back to clock to that pig-tailed school girl we all fell in love with, in these instantly iconic images.

La Collection Memento N°2 focuses heavily on denim and was inspired by the 1986 Paris runway debut of KENZO Jeans. But a more esoteric theme is ‘Icons’. The KENZO motifs (the tiger, The Great Wave of Kanagawa) are all featured heavily.

Britney Spears. KENZO. Peter Lindbergh.

What could at first seem an unusual trifecta, actually makes total sense when one learns that the collection is all about icons.

Britney is certainly an icon and the quintessential queen of denim – if you think back to her 2001 American Music Awards double denim moment with then boyfriend Justin Timberlake.

Lindbergh captured Britney in all her American Dream glory and beauty. Shot in Los Angeles, the campaign is a bit cheeky, optimistic, and joyous – the perfect combination for KENZO – La Collection Memento N°2.

In the campaign, Britney can be seen wearing pieces from the KENZO – La Collection Memento N°2 which will be available at kenzo.com, and KENZO stores globally from 21st March.

Maisie Williams In Kenzo – 2017 Q Awards

We may be in the middle of fall’s brisk pace, but Maisie Williams brought a rush of spring to the 2017 Q Awards in London last Wednesday (October 18).

Her Kenzo Spring 2018 two-piece ensemble provided a playful interpretation of red carpet dressing.

Although, she did slightly formalize the frilled top and trousers—as much as the striped pieces could be—with her metallic sandals and jewels, also skipping the belt.

‘Cabiria, Charity, Chastity’ New York Premiere

Kenzo’s creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim hosted the ‘Cabiria, Charity, Chastity’ premiere in New York City on Wednesday (September 13), alongside Natasha Lyonne.

Chloe Sevigny: The actress wore a Kenzo Spring 2018 crinkled satin dress styled with white go-go boots which suited the ’60s vibe she was going for within this look.

Natasha Lyonne: As the host of the event, the ‘OITNB’ actress was naturally in head-to-toe Kenzo. I can’t say I’m a fan of this look. The oversized blazer is impeccably cut, but on the actress – along with the styling – overwhelms her petite frame. Less would’ve been more in this case.

Margaret Qualley In Kenzo – Kenzo’s Summer Party

Margaret Qualley has already proven that she isn’t playing it safe when it comes to fashion, and her experimental mood continued at the Kenzo Summer Party in Madrid, Spain on Wednesday (September 6).

With style risks, you win some and you lose some, and this look definitely landed more in the loss column for me.

This Kenzo Resort 2018 yellow frock just translated as ill-fitting and, daresay, frumpy on the young starlet.

I do appreciate her willingness to embrace the directional Kenzo footwear, but that will not increase my affection for it at all.

The dress has not only proved difficult for Margaret, but also for Millie Bobby Brown who wore it completely differently at the Teen Choice Awards.

Jessica Szohr In Kenzo x H&M – harper by Harper’s BAZAAR September Issue Party

Jessica Szohr was also present for the harper by Harper’s BAZAAR September Issue cover party with Nina Dobrev on Tuesday (August 22) in West Hollywood, California, alongside Kat Graham and Julianne Hough.

I wasn’t initially a huge fan of the Kenzo x HM collection, but I do love how vibrant this short folkloric ribbon dress is, and how Jessica’s simple styling complements the look.

My first thought was that Jessica should’ve worn the hair up, but on reflection the bold shoulders would’ve been the focus and I’m sure we would’ve been talking about the look resembles a linebacker.

You won’t be surprised to learn that Lupita Nyong’o has worn this dress before, but you maybe surprised to learn that Selma Blair did too.
