AW13 Campaign: Kate Moss Strips Off For Versace

VERSACE_ADV_FW13_WB04So the sun may have been out today but the magical never-ending roller coaster of fashion keeps on going and the autumn/winter 2013 campaigns are already being unveiled. Earlier today I shared the fairytale Mulberry campaign starring the stunning Cara Delevingne on my Facebook page, which I adored with the gorgeous owls, but this Versace campaign really grabbed my attention with its stripped back approach, which is literally the case for Kate Moss.

Promoting the ‘Vunk’ collection, Kate appears nude except for three strategically placed colourful quilted Vanitas leather bags, and does it with style in the campaign shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Kate keeps on surprising me, I am not one to go crazy about her street style, I get it she has style, but I love that she keeps on booking these high-profile campaigns after 25 years in modelling, which makes me remember that she is 39, yep Mossy will be 40 in January.

Talking about the campaign, Donatella Versace said:

“Versace campaign for Autumn/Winter 2013 is stripped back to the raw power of the clothes and models. There’s no set, no distraction, just the provocation, glamour and attitude of our fashion. Mert & Marcus genius transformed Kate and Saskia into these strong Versace characters.”

Well you can’t argue with Donatella – this is one amazing campaign. I love the contrast of the nudey Kate shots and the more punky styling of Saskia de Brauw’s images – both are sexy, striking and completely Versace for me.

Do you like the stripped back images and are you a fan of Mossy’s darker locks?

Cover Loving: Kate Moss And Her Four i-D Covers

id-magazine-kate-covers

Q is for Queen in i-D magazine’s pre-spring Alphabetical issue and it seems that they decided to put the Queen of all supermodels on not one but four covers as Kate Moss continues to out work models half her age.

Shot by Daniele + Iango, the covers not only look incredible, but they also celebrate 20 years of Kate Moss winking on the i-D cover. Looking at these shots you wouldn’t think that Mossy was 40, mush less that she first posed for i-D back in 1993 – she looks stunning in each one.

I can’t decide which is my favourite cover, I do love a black and white cover, I adore her Dior bow, the sexiness of the Saint Laurent hat, and the girliest cover I have seen from her is the floral Prada. Basically I love them all, but I think the black and white with the messy plait gets my vote. Now all I need to do is track it down!!!

SS13 Campaign: Versace Does Post Apocalyptic Glamour

Versace-SS13-ad-1So according to the Mayans the world was suppose to end today, I forgot all about it, but Versace obviously decided to do their own version of what an apocalypse would look like, and of course it would be glamorous and filled with half-naked gladiators.

For the spring/summer 2013 campaign, shot by Mert & Marcus, Versace has brought together three iconic models Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Joan Smalls and each one looks absolutely hot – especially Kate who is being flanked by three very hunky gladiators, Edward Wilding, Kacey Carring and Veit Couturier.

Of the campaign, Donatella Versace said:

“To have three glamorous and iconic women like Kate, Daria and Joan in one campaign is not an easy feat. Mert and Marcus really outdid themselves, each image is composed like a work of art.”

This is one steamy campaign that I am sure for some will be a little too fake, or photoshopped, but come what do you expect from Versace – these images are so on brand for me and I love them – they are OTT, striking, and so, so sexy.

What do you think of Versace’s spring/summer 2013 campaign?

December Covers: The Many Faces Of Kate Moss

With December marking Kate Moss’ 25th anniversary as a model it is no surprise that magazines around the globe wanted her as their end of 2012 cover star – what did surprise me was how very different each cover made her look.

There is a blonde Kate shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot for Vanity Fair, a veiled Kate for Vogue Espana captured by Mario Testino, and then there is a vibrant Kate on the cover for Elle Japan snapped by Sonia Sieff who certainly doesn’t look 38 years-old.

Each cover is so very different, but each cover is equally as divine, and what I love is that Kate really is showcasing her model pedigree with these covers and accompanying editorials.

I was trying to decide which one was my favourite, I keep fluttering between the Vanity Fair and Vogue Espana covers, I adore Kate’s blonde blunt fringe on the VF cover but there is something mysterious and alluring about her close-up cover shot beautifully by Testino.

So which cover gets your vote?
