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
It seems every time I do a September issue post another one gets released and of course it had to be Vogue US’ special anniversary issue starring a very statuesque Lady Gaga. This is Gaga’s second American Vogue cover, do you remember her pink wig for the March 2011 issue, well for September it seems that Gaga has gone blonde with a wig that kind of reminded me of muff handwarmer – sorry but it does. Shot by Mert & Marcus and styled by Grace Coddington I am excited to see the accompanying editorial. The cover itself is going to take a little getting used
Miu Miu have taken a trip back in time and recruited a former face actress and style icon Chloe Sevigny to front their autumn/winter 2012 collection and it seems they’ve taken inspiration from British pop star David Bowie from the ’70s. Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, I like this campaign, the quirky pose, the OTT make-up, the very bright and funky printed trousers, and most of all her sipping tea, very Lady Gaga!!!

Since I heard the news that Blake Lively was the face of Gucci’s upcoming Gucci Première fragrance, named after and inspired by the brand’s red carpet collection, I have to admit I was excited to see the campaign being shot by Mert & Marcus. The first preview of the campaign, ahead of the Nicolas Winding Refn short film, which will premiere during the Venice Film Festival in September, hit Twitter this morning and I was in awe at how gorgeous it was. Marking Blake Lively’s first fragrance campaign this print ad just shows that she was the perfect face to front this new
Oooh I do love something a little different, and this autumn/winter 2012 ad campaign from Givenchy certainly is a little different. Styled by Carine Roitfeld and shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott this is a stunning campaign aptly named the ‘Rave’. Starring Tisci’s favs Stella Tennant and Joan Smalls, as well as Daniela Braga, Stef Van Der Laan, Rodrigo Braga, Simone Nobili and Jarrod Scott, the models get their dance on to spectacular results. What I love most about this campaign has to be the intensity of the images, from the stormy skies to the urban setting and the striking androgynous styling.
