AW11 Campaign: Lanvin Asks Can Models Dance? Hell Yeah!!

If I said to you that a French fashion house went for a Pitbull song as the track to their latest campaign, be honest you would think I had lost the plot, well that is what Lanvin has done for autumn/winter 2011.

The campaign shot by Steven Meisel features super models Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmerman busting some shapes to Pitbull’s ‘I Know You Want Me’, and it is a super fun and stylish video. It is so good it even makes me question whether a print campaign was even needed.

I am so glad that this campaign turned out as well as it sounds on paper, admittedly Raquel doesn’t look as comfortable as Karen *she is a goddess after all*, and the men don’t exactly cut it for me, but you have to watch all the way to end to check out Alber Elbaz – he completely steals the show with his dance moves.

Seriously, awkward really is sexy.

Does anyone else want to plug in the Xbox Kinect and bust a few moves? I am think next gathering at mine, get glammed up and film our own Lanvin-inspired dance video – who is up for it?

Also who fancies buying me a Lanvin cape?

AW11 Campaign: Alexander McQueen Brings The Drama

As soon as I saw these Alexander McQueen autumn/winter 2011 campaign shots I was completely blown away by the drama and beauty. Photographed by David Sims he really does capture the essence of Sarah Burton’s ‘The Ice Queen in Her Court’ collection perfectly with the help of model of Raquel Zimmerman who looks stunning as a ‘savage beauty’.

I just love the way the harsh backgrounds of a the rocky countryside *possibly Scotland* along with a storm works perfectly against such gorgeous creations. My favourite has to be the image of the finale gown, I adore this frayed organza halterneck gown with embroidered pleats when it hit the runway, but add the explosion and rays of light from her head and volcanic-like ash and this image is truly iconic, and for me more than an advert but a piece of art.

Which is your favourite?

SS11 Campaign: Louis Vuitton Goes Oriental For Spring

Last season the Louis Vuitton ad campaign, with its old-Hollywood glamour, and trio of supermodels got my vote for one of the best campaigns of the season. I think it had a lot to do with the Mad Men feel about the clothes and styling. Well for spring/summer 2011, LV have stuck with photographer Steven Meisel, and gone for models Raquel Zimmermann, Freja Beha Erichsen and Kristen McMenamy, but this time LV have gone for an oriental feel.

What strikes me the most about these shots are the accessories – absolutely gorgeous – I really want that fan!!

Video Loving: Making of Love, Chloe Fragrance Advert


Making of videos are sometimes better the complete article for me, I think it is because I am intrigued by how the fashion creatives make me shine when I watch the finished product. This ‘Love, Chloé’ new fragrance advert looks amazing, not only does model Raquel Zimmermann look flawless, I am in love with the camel trousers and shirt – so chic.
