SS14 Campaign: Kate Moss For Alexander McQueen

When these pics of Kate Moss starring in the latest Alexander McQueen campaign dropped into my inbox yesterday I may have squealed a little, OK a lot, as not only does Kate look incredible with her cropped bleached yellow hair, but because her co-star is a mini Mossy, a replica doll version of the model.

When it comes to dreaming about designer dolls I would love to add to my Barbie collection, Alexander McQueen is top of that list, the drama and detail in the label’s designs would look amazing on my favourite doll, and now that I have seen this campaign I want to believe it might happen.

If the campaign wasn’t amazing enough, photographer Steven Klein has also directed a haunting short film inspired by the Sixties British cult thriller, Peeping Tom, and you see the film through the eyes of an unknown voyeur who follows Kate through a darkened street in East London.

As well as loving the eerie campaign, lusting over a mini Mossy doll, I can’t believe that this is the first time the British supermodel has fronted a campaign for the brand – that seems crazy considering what a supporter of the label she has been. All I can say is that it was worth the wait – I love this dark campaign.

Anyone else really want an Alexander McQueen mini Mossy doll?

Beauty Bytes: Chloé’s Fringe Love Affair

SS14 chloe 3 Beauty Bytes: Chloés Fringe Love Affair %tag

I have a love-hate affair with my fringe, when cut well I adore it, when cut badly or getting too long I despise it – but seeing Chloé’s stunning spring/summer 2014 campaign makes me realise how much I do love fringes.

The care-free seventies feel to this ‘last weekend of summer’ campaign is perfection, not only do I wish I was a Chloé girl like Lou Doillon and Julia Stegner, I also need to know the key to their impeccable bangs.

Each shot is amazing, I love the contrast between the blonde and brunette styles, but my favourite shot has to be how their fringes sit behind those oversized sunglasses – now if only I could look as chic with my out-of-control hair!!!

Do you have a love-hate affair with your fringe?

SS14 Campaign: Mulberry’s Animal Tea Party

SS14 Mulberry Cara 4 SS14 Campaign: Mulberrys Animal Tea Party %tag

Once again Mulberry has put together a whimsical English rose setting for its spring/summer 2014 ad campaign starring a very girlie looking Cara Delevingne in an animal tea-party themed shoot.

Not only is the concept cute, the styling of Cara by Edward Enninful is the most demure I have ever seen her look, she looks every inch the archetypal English rose – however I do think the animals are grabbing most of the attention!!!

I do love a charming English tea party, but I think I adore Mulberry’s take even more, with a white pony, a Jack Russell, a Patterdale Terrier, a Great Dane, a pelican and two cockatoos, apparently called Archie and Spud taking centre stage – it just shows that even for a model like Cara it is hard to compete with gorgeous animals – especially the pony, Dusty isn’t she just a darling.

I really do think that Tim Walker and Mulberry is a match made in heaven – I love this cute and quirky ad campaign.

Are you a fan of Cara’s new Mulberry campaign?

American Music Awards: Lady Gaga Brings Alive Versace Campaign

SS14 versace lady gaga 2 American Music Awards: Lady Gaga Brings Alive Versace Campaign %tag

Who: Lady Gaga

Where: At the 2013 American Music Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A chiffon lilac Versace gown from the spring/summer 2014 collection, assessorised with a body chain with two silver medusa medallions at the front and lilac Versace heels

Verdict: Just hours before her AMA red carpet appearance, Lady Gaga was named the face of Versace’s SS14 campaign with an ad shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, so in true Gaga style she decided to bring that campaign to life by wearing a very similar look.

Of course, because it is Gaga there was also a white mechanical horse, which was operated by two people underneath and she rode onto the red carpet with her blonde locks flowing doing her best damsel in distress.

I love the campaign image, I love the lilac colour to the gown and the cut-outs, and I am so pleased that she went for a longer style on the red carpet. But I think my favourite thing about this look has to be the styling of the body chain with two silver medusa medallions – that is just pure Versace and works perfectly.

Lady Gaga was apparently named the new face of the Italian fashion house because she is part of the family, anyone else think it is because she is morphing into Donatella?

What do you think of Lady Gaga’s latest red carpet look? Are you a fan of her Versace platinum blonde locks?

Ad Campaign: Jennifer Lawrence For Miss Dior

Miss Dior AW2013  Ad Campaign: Jennifer Lawrence For Miss Dior %tag

For her first Miss Dior campaign, Jennifer Lawrence was very couture, statuesque and elegant, for her follow-up it seems that the French fashion house has simply just gone with the star’s natural beauty for a more relaxed, stripped-backed vibe.

There is something about Jennifer that appeals across the board, she is beautiful but not in an OTT way, she is hilarious, she seems very grounded and doesn’t court the craziness of fame – plus she has the talent. For me her second campaign for Miss Dior really sells the qualities that everyone loves about the actress, her personality, while also helping the French label appeal to the average woman. I think it is a clever move as every woman wants a designer handbag.

I’m captivated by this campaign shot by Dan Jackson. Jennifer looks gorgeous with minimal make-up on, her hair is cute, and I love that chic-yet-simple grey woollen coat that lets the Miss Dior quilted handbag with chain-strap really shine. I think the blush pink one has been added to my handbag wish list!!!

What are you thoughts on a nearly bare-faced Jennifer Lawrence in Miss Dior’s latest campaign?

Ad Campaign: Cute Kids Model Karen Walker Sunglasses

karen walker forever Ad Campaign: Cute Kids Model Karen Walker Sunglasses %tag

When Karen Walker’s second summer ad campaign dropped in my inbox I have to be honest I couldn’t help myself but go “aww”. This has to be the cutest campaign of the season – the four cuties - Claudia, Tyler, Elise and Alice-Rose are all under five and they look amazing wearing the designer’s crazy shades.

My favourite has to be Alice-Rose with her cute ginger curls – she really is a model in the making – I love the attitude she is giving wearing Peek-a-boo round sunglasses.

Shot by photographer Derek Henderson, the campaign features four new styles, as well as the Peek-a-boo, there is the cat-eye shaped Siouxsie, the oval Underground shades, and the square-shaped Rowdy – each one very bold and a little bit retro.

I think this is a great follow-up to its first summer campaign that featured models between the ages of 65 to 92 – the pint-sized models really do look adorable. Also head over to Karen Walker’s website as there are mini interviews with the stars – I love that Tyler wants to live in Disneyland when he grows up!!!

AW13 Campaign: Red Valentino’s Dark Fairytale By Tim Walker

AW13 red valentino 2 AW13 Campaign: Red Valentinos Dark Fairytale By Tim Walker %tag

I love whimsical, I love drama, and I adore an edgy fairytale theme. The autumn/winter 2013 ad campaign for Red Valentino has once again been captured by Tim Walker and it shows off the beauty and darkness of the fairytale collection to perfection.

I just love how you can instantly tell that this is a Tim Walker campaign, from the use of props to the contrast between her romantic floral looks and the sinister setting, which looks all the more striking against the crisp white background.

As well as loving the art direction of the campaign, the Russian doll, folky fairytale collection is just adorable – I am in love with the flower pompom shoes, the braided hair and the feminine dresses.

I am seriously lusting over Valentino’s little sister line.

Are you a fan of Red Valentino and their sinister-yet-romantic campaign?
