Video Loving: No Way Is Claudia Schiffer 41

I have already gushed about my love for the GUESS girls and I have to give it to Claudia Schiffer she puts models half her age to shame as she looks gorgeous in this 30th anniversary video for the brand. I am seriously questioning her age, there is no way that she can be 41, she looks stunning in this campaign, and I even think she looks better than she did in 1989 when she first modelled for GUESS.

Under the creative eye of Paul Marciano, CEO and Creative Director of GUESS and directed by the amazingly talented Ellen von Unwerth, this is one sexy and fun video shot on location in Sorrento, Italy. I am loving Claudia, normally I have to be honest I haven’t been that fussed by her, but in this video she is truly memorizing.

Guess Girls: 30 Years Of Great Campaigns

2012 - 30 Sexy Years shot by Ellen von Unwerth

So Guess turns 30 this year and with the Claudia Schiffer taking the reins of the brand’s latest campaign, 23 years after originally posing for the label, it got me thinking about all the other Guess Girls over the years. This is a brand with clout, they’ve had more supermodels Naomi Campbell and Eva Herzigova back in the early 90’s, they’ve had actresses Drew Barrymore, Charlize Theron and the most recently Amber Heard, they had an unrecognisable Anna Nicole Smith starring in a number of sultry campaigns, and they even had ads with party girl Paris Hilton back in 2004, oh and a 16-year-old Carla Bruni was the third Guess Girl in 1987.

As well as famous faces, Guess also love a good model from the gorgeous French model Laetitia Casta to Josie Maran who starred in one of my favourite campaigns, to a number of models who have gone onto become Victoria Secret’s angels Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, and in recent years we have had Line Gost, Elsa Hosk, Irina Shayk, and Alyssa Miller.

1989 - Claudia Schiffer shot by Ellen von Unwerth

Two decades later, Claudia Schiffer shot once again by Ellen von Unwerth, works the ’30 sexy years’ campaign for the anniversary collection, which comprises of 15 pieces inspired by the brand’s archive, updated with a modern twist. The capsule line will include high-waisted denim cigarette pants, lace bustier, and vintage tie-waist button-down tops.

1993 - Drew Barrymore shot by Wayne Maser

1992/3 - Anna Nicole Smith shot by Daniela Federici

How unrecognisable is Anna Nicole?? She was such a gorgeous model.

2011/2 - Amber Heard shot by Ellen von Unwerth

As well as propelling the careers of many models, the iconic Guess campaigns have been shot by some of the best in the business, most notably Ellen von Unwerth, a former model who was just starting out when she shot for Guess, and Wayne Maser who captured the first campaign back in 1983. There has been the legendary Herb Ritts, Australian photographer Daniela Federici, Chuck Goodenough, Dewey Nicks, Pablo Alfaro, Raphael Mazzuccco, Yu Tsai, and even Bryan Adams snapped a number of Guess campaigns.

1998 - Josie Maran shot by Pablo Alfaro

I think this is one of my favourite campaigns, not only does Josie look gorgeous, but I love how simple the imagery is yet it still have the sexy Guess vibe to it.

2011 - Elsa Hosk shot by Ellen von Unwerth

2008 - Fransizka Frank shot by Bryan Adams

2007 - Line Gost shot by Bryan Adams

1987 - Carla Bruni shot by Wayne Maser/ 2006 - Paris Hilton shot by Ellen von Unwerth

These last two have to be the most bizarre for me, mainly because I forget that Carla Bruni was a model, and secondly Paris Hilton really does stand-out for all the wrong reasons as a Guess Girl, but apparently they were going for over-the-top young Hollywood glamour, still I don’t think this is a highlight of the 30 years!!!

Do you have a favourite Guess Girl?

Bag Lust: The Loewe Flamenco Handbag

It seems I am not the only one who loves a Loewe bag, celebrities including Claudia Schiffer, Jessica Alba and Daisy Lowe, have been spotted carrying the bright and funky Flamenco handbags.

This Nappa leather bag is a reissue of the 80s classic and I just love how it stands out from the crowd with its rainbow pop colours. I love the extra-large tassels, the strap that allows it to be worn as a shoulder bag or cross-body, plus the fact that it comes it two sizes, the large one is perfect for all my daily needs.

It does however seem to be the celebrity ‘it’ bag of the moment though, even Aussie pop star Kylie was seen carrying the Candy coloured one in London recently, the same one that Daisy Lowe has. I love the dual-tone of this bag – as soon as I saw it I was thinking that Barbie and Mattel need to hook up with Loewe as they would make a great accessories pack for my favourite doll!!

I think my favourite is the yellow one, yep I am following the lead of Claudia Schiffer, Ashley Greene and Emily Blunt, who all have this stunning bag.

There is one catch though this beauty is over 1,000 Euros, to be exact the Flamenco 22 is 1,200 Euros and the Flamenco 30 is 1,400 Euros. I’ve already added it to my wishful thinking Christmas list to Santa!!!

So, which is your favourite?

Fashion Fringe: Claudia Schiffer In Basso and Brooke

Who: Supermodel and Fashion Fringe 2011 judge Claudia Schiffer

Where: At the Fashion Fringe 2011 final at 8 Northumberland Avenue, London

Wearing: A colourful Basso & Brooke printed mini dress from their Fashion Fringe winning collection from 2004, nipped in at the waist with a black belt and teamed with gold jewellery and a black clutch

Verdict: It was such a great night and weirdly I had been discussing with the Fashion Fringe PR on whether or not Claudia would wear a former winner, and she did. Claudia was super nice to chat to and was very informative on the dress telling me it was from Basso & Brooke’s winning collection from back in 2004. My picture obviously don’t do the dress or Claudia justice, but you can certainly see why they won that year!!!
