Lanvin Dance
Though I wasn’t blown away by Lanvin‘s Fall/Winter 2011 campaign images (featuring Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann ‘dancing’), I was definitely intrigued. Dancing campaigns are usually chosen to show us the movement and texture in the garments, where the Lanvin shots were almost frozen stiff.

Then came the Steven Meisel-shot campaign video. It is the missing puzzle piece, thank the Fashion Gods. In the short-ish clip, we see Raquel, Karen, and two male models doing some poker-faced choreography to Pitbull’s “I Know You Want Me“. Never did I think I would see the day Lanvin would embrace Pitbull. It is delightfully tongue-in-chic, and expertly wrapped up with a little boogie from Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz. Tres cute.

Miu Miu Hailee Steinfeld
Guess what just arrived? Hailee Steinfeld‘s campaign for Miu Miu – and it completely rocked my expectation’s boats. The first look completely aligns with the represented Fall/Winter 2011 collection, and Bruce Weber‘s film-esque lens is a welcome change from the over-processed campaigns that Miu Miu have been edging away from. It is love.

D&G Spring Summer 2011
D&G are relentless in regards to good campaigns. While their Spring/Summer 2011 offerings didn’t make the top of my list, I just can’t deny them a great campaign. Models Mariana Idźkowska, Auguste Abeliunaite, Julia Turenkova, Keke Lindgard, Jessica Clarke, Simon Nessman, Alex Cunha, and Tobias Sorensen are caught in the lens and lens flare of Mario Testino among a luscious frame of florals. Just gorgeous. View Post

Guess Fall Winter 2010 Campaign

While the clothes have never been the avant garde specialties I naturally head for, the models – like this season’s Silviu Tolu, Alyssa Miller, and Elsa Hosk – rarely dissapoint. Famed fashion and celebrity photographer Ellen Von Unwerth brings the Guess Fall/Winter campaign alive by infusing her signature style. View Post
