Video Ad: Prada Autumn 2012

Using the theme of a chess match, Prada highlights the matchy-matchy leisure suits from the label’s Autumn 2012 collection. Personally I think they are awesome but I wonder how popular this collection will be if only because they’re a bit more conceptual and lack the femininity of Prada’s blockbuster Spring 2012 offerings.

GucciBlake 406x540 Ad: Blake Lively Ad For Gucci Premiere Fragrance

Gucci premieres its Premiere fragrance campaign featuring Blake Lively. She looks amazing we must say, and certainly the Europeans designers seem to adore her, but at some point soon we’d like to see her beef up her work resume a bit, needed if she wants her “pretty face” work to have some legs.

Video Ad: Miss Dior Ft. Mila Kunis Autumn 2012

We already presented the advertising teaser last week for the Miss Dior handbag featuring Mila Kunis, now a video featuring an interview with wonderful Kunis. The film features the signature black-and-white themes Dior has become know for.

Once again, the film confirms why Mila Kunis is one of the faces I can’t get enough of at the moment. Her naturalness just seems so real behind as well as in front of the camera.

Video Ad: Azealia Banks For T By Alexander Wang

27 July 2012, 12.55 | Posted in Music, advertisement, celebrity | No comments »

Following in the footsteps of Santigold, Spank Rock and Die Antwoord, Azealia Banks is the new face of T by Alexander Wang for Autumn 2012, kicked off with a video that includes the Harlem rapper performing her single “Van Vogue” from her leak-all-over-the-place EP 1991. Earlier this year, Banks and Wang attended the Met Gala together. One has to hope this signals a move in a more productive direction for Banks who despite her talent has stumbled quite a bit out of the gate.

Ad: Kate Moss For Rag & Bone

24 July 2012, 16.04 | Posted in Models, advertisement, celebrity | 1 comment »


Rag & Bone is opening its first European store in London, and the label tapped Kate Moss to front its ad campaign, as shot by Craig McDean. Rag & Bone will also show during London Fashion Week during September, and from what I’m reading, the the London ad campaign and runway show are a first for the brand.

As for Moss, my co-editor, SGP, and I were just chatting about her recent rise among male fashion watchers.  She’s been an icon forever and a day in the fashion world of women (to the point where it’s like, oh boy, another Kate Moss ad, cover, runway??) , but it seems over the past couple of years there’s been this uptick in interest for her by the fellas. Search through the posts on our sibling sites, where the guys post more about Moss more than we do, and check the popularity of her Supreme t-shirt to see what we mean.

We have this theory that the guys who once never noticed her now find her attractive because she’s a grown and accomplished female, whose credentials as a successful wife, mom and business woman are established. Sort of how young male chimps lust after more mature, alpha female chimp ladies. Not that dudes are animals or anything (even though we all actually are), but there is something to be said about a woman whose looks are still working and who has all her ducks in line.

Video: Kenzo Lookbook by Quentin Jones Pre-Autumn 2012

Quentin Jones, the genius filmmaker and illustrator who also stands behind the Victoria Backham campaign video, teamed up with Kenzo and created the brand’s pre-Autumn 2012 collection. The result is a high-energy, very cool two-minute moving collage featuring hula-hoop models, with an 80s aura that is found in many brands’ campaigns these days. Anyway, the collection persuades–sporty jackets and leather gloves in all colors definitely make the fashion hearts beat faster. Enjoy!

Twenty-six-year old singer and song writer Lana del Rey is the new global face for H&M’s Autumn/Winter collection 2012. The first two images released, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, show her wearing a pale pink angora blend sweater, leather jeans and big hair, reminding strongly of a young Piscilla Presley. For the campaign Ms. Del Rey also performed a cover of “Blue Velvet” embedded in a minifilm that will be released on HM.com on September 19. We will keep you posted.
