It always strikes us as kind of weird when real life couples leverage their real life relationships for… advertising campaigns? Seems a little exploitative.
Then again, we’re not comely young Brits with major British fashion labels throwing money (pounds?!) at us. More
We shouldn’t be surprised–it’s not like Lagerfeld would keep a staff of “normal people” (or Greek people!). More
Have you ever wondered if home invasion could be both terrifying… and sexy? Did you ever consider someone breaking into your home as a super hot hook-up opportunity? You didn’t? Probably because you’re humorless. And frigid. More
Few brands are more guilty of Photoshop hackjobs than the Kardashian korporate umbrella. Remember the swimwear campaign? Or the Tang-orange lingerie kollection? All memorably awful photoshop. Poor Khloe Kardashian usually gets the worst of it–or her body is strategically hidden–but Kim’s kurves … More
Valentino, a house synonymous with lace-y, feminine elegance and refined taste, has enlisted Terry Richardson‘s heavily tattooed forearm to star in their Fall 2013 campaign. The much-maligned super-photographer can be seen holding the brand’s signature studded accessories, in place of the usual 14-year-old Estonians with their lips parted just so. More
Being the result of a very dark parent and a very light parent coming together, I neither burn nor tan when I am put in the sun — I just stay skim milk blue/white. As a result of these genetics, as well as living in California for several years, I have always been somewhat curious to see how I would look as a bronze lady. Unfortunately, I am terrified of sunless tanner, so I kind of gave up that dream years ago. But I am debating trying St. Tropez, which has just debuted Kate Moss as its new “face.” More
The mermaid-like actress told WWD that she reacted to the offer with a “fuck yeah,” because she’s cool enough to be candid. More
Beyonce has a new song, a new world tour, and a new H&M collaboration to shill. Now she has a new music video to combine them all. The Swedish fast fashion retailer is even claiming she helped design the clothes (she was really “hands on,” we bet). More
It’s been confirmed! Elegant faced actress, Diane Kruger, will be the face of Chanel‘s skincare line when the campaign launches later this year. More
This is also one of those Photoshop of Horrors that creeps up on you. More
Since Beyonce is everywhere all the time right now, she’ll be appearing in H&M‘s Summer ad campaign. The hugely famous singer, mother and star of Carmen: A Hip Hopera will appear in “television commercials, print ads and billboards.” BUT WAIT! There’s more. More
Emily DiDonato has been a successful model for quite some time but she recently started making inroads toward full on name recognition with the one-two punch of 1) Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition work and 2) apparently striking up a romantic relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal.
Since she may be on the verge of supermodel status, let’s take this opportunity to examine DiDonato’s rather impressive career. More
First of all, let’s give a big high five to Agent Provocateur for casting Crystal Renn in their latest campaign. Though Renn may seem tiny, she does exist in the strange, seemingly empty world between “straight” and “plus” size models–which is to say, her presence still represents positive change in an industry that desperately needs it. Also, she is super hot.
A few days ago, we saw the first ad for the Alexander Wang Spring 2013 collection (above). It featured (the truly great, truly beautiful) Polish model Malgosia Bela and, strikingly, no clothing whatsoever. Why, we fashion bloggers wondered, would a fashion campaign feature no fashion? This was all starting to seem a little masturbatory for us, but then the rest of the campaign dropped and… it’s pretty great!
Steven Klein shot the set, in which Bela is styled (by Patti Wilson) like a futuristic warrior but also haunted cave woman? We don’t know. And, yes, there are clothes.
And maybe some nipple? More
