MAC x Antonio Lopez

This campaign image for M∙A∙C x Antonio Lopez collection is just breath taking. 70s supermodels Marisa Berenson, Jerry Hall and Pat Cleveland aka Antonio’s Girls look absolutely incredible here. Antonio Lopez is one of the great fashion illustrators and M∙A∙C has created a collection based on his work and muses. I’m absolutely in love with the packaging. The legendary fashion illustrator’s vibrant energy, brazen attitude and love of life inspire a striking colour collection featuring: Eyes x 6 Palettes, Lips x 3 Palettes and Face Palettes perfect for highlighting natural tones and contours. Each palette displays the fiercely individual face of one of his muses, “Antonio’s Girls,” while each product’s packaging features a drawing by the artist, making these objets d’art to be treasured. Available on September 12, 2013 at all M·A·C locations and M∙A∙C x Antonio Lopez Face $55 M∙A∙C x Antonio Lopez Make up Bag $48 – Available at M∙A∙C stores only M∙A∙C x Antonio Lopez Powder Blush $46 M∙A∙C x Antonio Lopez Lips $33 M∙A∙C x Antonio Lopez Eyes $52 M∙A∙C …

Christian Dior Fall Winter 2013 – 2014 Ad Campaign

I’m lucky this season for my favourite models headlining campaigns this season. Mariacarla Boscono is one of the stars of the Christian Dior Fall Winter 2013 – 2014 Ad Campaign. I’m not big on the whole campaign so I’ve only included the two I like. Model: Mariacarla Boscono, Daria Strokous Photographer: Willy Vanderperre images:

Proenza Schouler Fall Winter 2013 – 2014 Ad Campaign

One of my favourite models working for some of my favourite designers. I love the Proenza Schouler Fall Winter 2013 – 2014 Ad Campaign with my absolute favourite model, Sasha Pivovarova. There is a campaign video too!! Sasha is looking awesome and I’m glad she’s returned to the fashion world. Photographer: David Sims Model: Sasha Pivovarova images:

Lanvin Fall – Winter 2013 -2014 Ad Campaign

I love all the personalities the model, Edie Campbell takes on for the Lanvin Fall – Winter 2013 -2014 Ad Campaign I love the print campaign. The photos are so rich and each look is a real transformation. I’m not a big fan of the ad campaign video for some reason. I find the campaign works better without the talking and I find the men more interesting than Edie for some reason. This is my favourite image and favourite dress of ones featured.

Miu Miu Fall – Winter 2013 – 2014 Ad Campaign and Video

The Fall Winter 2013 – 2014 ad campaigns are starting to come out and so far Miu Miu is my favourite. There are some really striking images in the campaign. The love the way the colours seem so saturated and leap off the page. Evoking a spirit of adventure and daring, the Fall/Winter 2013 campaign captures the passage of girls in a twilight cinema-scape loaded with intrigue, imagination and femininity. Set at the end of a seaside pier, their stories unfurl against a mysterious cityscape and vanishing horizon, brought to life in an up-tempo quirky dance video where the models move harmoniously with the rhythm and mood of the music. While standing on the dock of the bay waiting for a ferry, they dance away the fun of the night before returning home in the early morning. In a fabricated reality of noir optimism, Inez & Vinoodh capture a diverse and exhilarating cast of characters including Katlin Aas, Emily DiDonato, Daphne Groeneveld, Georgia May Jagger, Adriana Lima, Marina Nery, Hind Sahli, Anne Verhallen and Lindsey …

Are You Watching The FACE?

I haven’t watched any fashion reality television in years. When I heard that one of my fashion heroes Naomi Campbell would be hosting The FACE, I lost my shit. This would be everything that ANTM wasn’t. “The Face,” hosted by photographer Nigel Barker, features supermodel coaches Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha as they compete to find the face of ULTA Beauty, one of the fastest growing beauty retailers in the United States. The series will give viewers access inside the world of the industry as three teams of aspiring models, each led by one of the supermodel coaches, are guided through real life assignments, including photo shoots and commercials. The show is brilliant and let’s be serious, it’s great to be able to stare at Nigel again. It’s way more serious than ANTM and Naomi tells it like it is. I fell completely in love with the show when Naomi told a couple models that no one gives a damn about their sob stories and to get it together. I’ve gotten a whole …

Givenchy Spring Summer 2013 Ad Campaign

I’m loving the Givenchy Spring Summer 2013 ad campaign. Kate, Mariacarla and Marina in one campaign, OMG. My favourite model Mariacarla Boscono is back with her baby in tow and looking amazing. Looking better than ever. Performance artist, Marina Abramovic, whose movie The Artist is Present is an absolute must see, is looking so incredible. I love this woman. The uncanny Kate Moss, she just doesn’t lose her touch. Check out the making of video.

Lanvin Spring Summer 2013 Ad Campaign

I’m not the biggest fan of the Lanvin Spring Summer 2013 Ad Campaign. The models don’t do much for me. I will admit that it’s pretty slick looking and if the models were different I’d probably be very excited. My thoughts about the campaign changed after I watched the adorable Lanvin Spring Summer 2013 Ad Campaign video with Alber Albez talking about the collection on Skype. He is so cute.

Harper’s Bazaar China – October 2012

The October 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar China had a beautiful Parisian themed editorial with model Miao Bin Si. For the 26th anniversary of the magazine they fly to Paris for this retro style editorial. I love everything about this editorial. The makeup is perfect and I love seeing the stylist create classic looks using current designers.

Ornate Expectations – How to Spend It Magazine

I’m in love with the Ornate Expectations editorial in’s How to Spend It magazine. It gets all baroque crazy with the season’s trend and lots of antiques. I’ve included my favourite shots from the editorial here but you can see the entire shoot It’s worth pursuing just for the information about all the items in each of the shots. View the complete Ornate Expectations editorial at How To Spend it Magazine.

Vogue Paris September 2012 – Le Noir Partie 2

I’m dying to get my hands on the September 2012 issue of Vogue Paris. There are some great editorials in the magazine and my favourite is Le Noir Partie 2 with Suvi Koponen. This editorial is just so striking. It’s got that creepy gothic feel happening. This is my favourite shot. I find it a bit unsettling with her face covered. Photographer: Mert & Marcus Model: Suvi Koponen Styling: Joe McKenna Hair: Garren & Daniel Martin Make-Up: Lucia Pieroni Nails: Lorraine Griffin images:

Fashion Cares 25 Ad Campaign

The Fashion Cares 25 ad campaign has just been released and man how good does Tara Gill look in this. Smoking! They are working that glitter theme and I love it. This is Dane who is also with Elmer Olsen models. He’s looking great too. A new block of tickets for Fashion Cares 25 at $195 have gone on sale at Ticketmaster. Fashion Cares 25 take place at the Sony Centre For The Performing Arts on September 9, 2012.

Prada Spring Summer 2012 Ad Campaign Print and Video

Prada looked to vintage cars as her inspiration for Spring Summer 2012. The collection is playful and reminds me of Grease. The shoes are pretty killer too. This campaign video doesn’t even come close to being as good as Spring Summer 2011, it’s still pretty fun. Models: Natasha Poly, Guinevere van Seenus, Elise Crombez, Meghan Collison, Katryn Kruger and Ymre Stiekema. Photographer: Steven Meisel images:

Chanel Spring Summer 2012 Ad Campaign

I had to do a double take when these Chanel Spring Summer 2012 ad campaign shots came out. What the hell was Joan Smalls doing in a Chanel ad. My head was exploding (this was a good thing in this situation). First, Indian girls in the Chanel Pre-Fall 2012 show and now Joan Smalls in the latest ad campaign. I like this trend. As for this ad campaign overall. Joan doesn’t have as many solo shots as Saskia. The photos are lovely but ultimately pretty boring.

Givenchy Fall Winter 2011 – 2012 Ad Campaign

I like the Givenchy Fall Winter 2011 – 2012 Ad Campaign and I don’t. I love that Mariacarla Boscono and Naomi Campbell are participating but the expressions in the photos seem a little forced. I’m usually a Givenchy die hard but the fall winter 2011 – 2012 season wasn’t appealing to me. Doesn’t make much sense since I usually love cat imagery. The men’s campaign is better executed.

Lanvin Fall Winter 2011 – 2012 Ad Campaign

My favourite ad campaign of the fall winter 2011 – 2012 season is Lanvin. There is something about the symmetry and movement in these shots that makes me smile. Raquel Zimmermann and Karen Elson are fantastic models and are some of my favourites. Of course the fall winter 2011 – 2012 collection from Lanvin is gorgeous.

SHOWstudio does Spring Summer 2011 Haute Couture

The guys from SHOWstudio shoot model, Ming Xi in various iconic pieces from the Spring Summer 2011 Haute Couture collections. Designers featured include Jean Paul Gaultier, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, and John Galliano for Christian Dior. I’ve embedded the fashion film featuring Ming Xi here on the site but I urge you to check out the SHOWstudio site because each Haute Couture look get an in depth video treatment like the Givenchy one I posted a couple weeks ago. These videos give you an up close look at the dresses and talks about significant design details. Plus, there is an interesting interview with Ming.

Dazed & Confused July 2011

The colours in this editorial for Dazed & Confused’s July 2011 issue are so rich.  The flowers are a perfect backdrop for the colourful clothing worn by model Lisanne de Jong. The editorial was shot by Viviane Sassen. Some people in The Fashion Spot forums were complaining that Lisanne’s face was covered in most shots. I thought it was refreshing that her face wasn’t the focus of the shots.  It brought the clothing details to the forefront. images:
