Video Loving: Karlie Kloss Went To Cali And Kicked Ass!!!

Juicy Couture has really stepped it up to another level lately, I was blown away by its autumn/winter 2012 collection, and now the LA brand has tapped Karlie Kloss as its latest face and she really is kicking ass!!!

In Juicy Couture’s first fashion film, shot by photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Karlie takes to the beach and fights off a a couple of hunky surfers, a lifeguard and even a cop with a few karate chops and kicks in her very tight Juicy Jeans.

With the return of the Spice Girls maybe there is a new era of girl power coming, well Karlie certainly has her kick ass attitude down, and I think this film is seriously helped by the incredible LL Cool J soundtrack – I love his “Going Back to Cali” tune.

Loving the fashion film? Well, also check out the cute behind-the-scene footage below:

Cover Loving: Models Continue To Shine On The September Issues

I love celebrities and I do love seeing celebrities on magazine covers, yep even I have been persuaded to buy a magazine just because my favourite actress is on the cover, but I have to be honest I do love it when models take covers, more so when it is a September issue – as they are the fashion issues of the year.

It seems that this September the supermodels really are taking over and producing some amazing covers. I have already shown you ELLE UK’s gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, well the subscriber cover dropped through my letterbox over the weekend and I am so pleased they showcased her incredible pins!!! Well it seems that more magazines around the world understand the power of a model – Flare, Canada’s biggest fashion magazine has gone for Lindsey Wixson, Vogue UK and Japan both went for Karlie Kloss, Tokyo Numero have the lovely Candice Swanepoel, and Tatler shows that Cindy Crawford can still work it.

One of my favourite covers so far for September has to be Flare’s gold rush with Lindsey Wixson wearing a coat, top and skirt from Prabal Gurung’s autumn/winter 2012 collection, with incredible Laruicci earrings and a super pop of red lippy.

What I love about this cover, other than the obvious – her striking beauty, I still can’t believe that she is only 18-years-old, but that Flare didn’t go for one of the obvious, high-spending advertisers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton or Gucci – it is always refreshing to see, especially with a September issue.

I was expecting a lot from British Vogue, September as they state themselves is ‘Fashion’s Olympic moment’, but for me this vibrant  seventies-inspired look doesn’t quite cut it for me. Shot by Nick Knight, I love the Jonathan Saunders high-waisted gold printed skinny trousers teamed with a clashing printed silk shirt, but I am put off by Karlie’s pose, I am not sure Tara would approve, and I really dislike the orange and pink text – just too much.

I think I am going to have to give it to Vogue Japan, their September issue featuring Karlie in an Yves Saint Laurent chainmail dress is divine. I love the moody feel to this cover, the white background works perfectly with the smoky tones and of course it wouldn’t be Japanese without the text overload. Everything from the styling to the make-up to her pose and the text works on this cover shot by Mikael Jansson.

Special mention has to go to Cindy Crawford, how stunning does she look for Tatler, she really doesn’t age I couldn’t believe that she is 46 – she is giving these younger models a run for their money!!!

Have you been impressed with the September covers so far? Do let me know which ones are your favourites.

AW11 Campaign: Bally Girls Have Great Legs!

I have to give it to Bally this is a great ad campaign, I just love the sultry sixties vibe that it has going on, oh and it helps that they have three absolutely stunning models: Brazilian model Caroline Trentini and top American model Karlie Kloss alongside Argentinian-born Nico Malleville.

The campaign was shot back in April in New York by Steven Meisel *I know does everyone use him*, and was styled by British-stylist Edward Enninful *love*, under the guidance of Bally Creative Directors’ Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler.

For some I am sure that the lighting will be an issue, but I like how it gives it a seductive European feel; and I adore how the shoes and accessories really pop, it really has a luxurious feel and will look amazing when they hit magazines from September.

What do you think? Do you like these adverts?
