Editorial Loving: Paper Mag & Rodarte’s Star Wars Collection

Editorial Loving: Paper Mag & Rodarte’s Star Wars Collection

When the Rodarte AW14 collection ended with five sci-fi gowns featuring Star Wars, fashion editors were divided, some thought it was silly and a gimmick, others loved how fun and cool it was. I have to be honest I was on the fun and cool side. Sometimes fashion takes itself way too serious and I love that Rodarte do generally step out and do something different.

Granted I can’t see the average Joe wearing these pieces, or even a celebrity on a red carpet, but they really are made for an editorial shoot and I love that Paper magazine for their 30th anniversary edition took the five dresses to George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch.

Campaign Loving: Zara Goes To P.E. Class

Campaign Loving: Zara Goes To P.E. Class

I don’t often feature lookbooks on Fashionista Barbie, but I do love a great campaign, and I have to be honest I think of this autumn/winter 2014 shoot from Zara TRF more of an ad campaign than a lookbook **that’s my spin to include, and I am sticking with it**.

As soon as I saw these back-to-school inspired shots captured by Patrick Demarchelier I got all nostalgic, it got me thinking of all that new stationery, the excitement of seeing your friends after a long summer break, and those new trainers that you just have to persuade your mum to buy you for P.E. class.

AW14 Campaign: The Givenchy Rave

AW14 Campaign: The Givenchy Rave

Ever wondered what a Riccardo Tisci private party would looked liked? Well according to Givenchy’s autumn/winter 2014 ad campaign it includes a select guest list, gorgeous models, lots of dancing, half-naked men, music from the Martinez Brothers and most importantly a strict Givenchy AW14 dress code. It really does sounds like my sort of rave.

AW14 Campaign: Jeremy Scott Surprises With His First Moschino Ad

Who could forget Jeremy Scott’s explosive, fun, junk food-inspired autumn/winter 2014 collection for Moschino, I think the French fries iPhone cover was Instagrammed by all the top bloggers within days of the catwalk show, well it seems that for his first ad campaign he has gone for a more iconic, timeless approach and I adore it. 

Starring Linda Evangelista and shot by Steven Meisel, the campaign is less trashy-chic and more classy than I was expecting after seeing the McDonald’s Moschino Happy Meal handbags and SpongeBob Square Pants knits hit the Milan catwalk – the gaudy colours have been replaced for a classic black and white portrait that actually makes that McDonalds bag look classy. 

I love everything about this campaign – from the black and white to the pose, now that is a supermodel working it, to the big blow dry, gorgeous tailored coat and super cute earrings. The catwalk might have been to grab attention, steal a few headlines during fashion week, but this campaign is all about selling the collection. 

If nothing else you have got to admit, McDonalds has never looked so good!

Updated: 

More of the Moschino’s autumn/winter 2014 campaign has been released and it just keeps getting better. I just adore the styling by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, seriously exquiste and truly captures a different side of the collection, especially with it shot in black and white. I also love the use of the all-star crew – for Jeremy Scott’s first campaign it is great that he could get Linda Evangelista, Stella Tennant, Carolyn Murphy, Saskia Debraw, Karen Elson and Rachel Zimmerman all to take part as they look incredible.

What do you think of Moschino’s AW14 campaign?
