August was one of those pinch me is this really happening months. I’m still processing the idea of my face plastered all over Roots stores and their online properties. That’s right, I’m currently part of Roots Sweatstyle Ad Campaign. As with most amazing things that happen to me it started with a random email. In July, I was approached by Roots to take part in their Sweatstyle campaign celebrating Roots’s 41st anniversary. It was going to be a big one featuring online, instore, magazines and outdoor ads. I didn’t quite understand the large scope of the campaign when I said yes but my ego was all over it. Here is a company that I’ve grown up with asking me to become part of their history. I also love having any excuse to take part in a phootshoot with professional hair and makeup artists, stylists and photographers. The question I got asked by most people when I told them I was participating was “Did they pay you?â€ I didn’t receive any money for the campaign but …
The Alexander McQueen Fall Winter 2013 – 2014 collection was quite an achievement. I like the minimal look of the ad campaign. It works perfectly against the super ornate clothing. Model: Edie Campbell Photographer: David Sims images: Alexander McQueen Facebook
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: thefashionspot.com
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: thefashionspot.com
Kenzo has the early lead in my favourite ad campaign of the Fall – Winter 2013 -2014 season. With Schiaparelli Haute Couture back, it’s nice to more surrealism in fashion. OMG, kitty in a shoe. Love! creative trio Maurizio Cattelan, Micol Talso and Pierpaolo Ferrari behind arts magazine TOILETPAPER for its fall 2013 campaign. The advertisements star Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi and male model Sean O’Pry via Kenzo Embraces Fantasy for Fall 2013 Campaign with Rinko Kikuchi | Fashion Gone Rogue: The Latest in Editorials and Campaigns.
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.

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 …
Tilda Swinton is divine in the Chanel Pre Fall 2013 Ad Campaign. I’m really attracted to this ad campaign because one it’s Tilda and the Chanel Paris-Edimbourg show was absolutely brilliant. images: fashiongonerogue.com
Lucian Matis does it again with another brilliant Spring Summer 2013 Ad Campaign. This comes on the heels of his beautiful Fall Winter 2012 Ad Campaign. See the rest of the campaign in the gallery.

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.

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. Photographer: Steven Meisel Make-Up:Pat McGrath Hair: Garren Models: Daria Strokous, Karlie Kloss and Saskia de Brauw image: thefashionspot.com
The Charlotte Olympia Cruise 2013 is influenced by Brazil. I’m in love with the Glamazon collection lookbook more than the shoes. Check out the gallery below for the rest of the lookbook photos.
I loved the Lucian Matis Fall 2012 ad campaign and Lucian has just released a video documenting that process. image: courtesy of Lucian Matis
I posted one of the three videos for the Hudson Jeans Cabaret Collection already. I loved their use of the running man to showcase the Leeloo jean. The rest of the videos in the campaign for the Cabaret Collection are just as entertaining. Georgia May Jagger is growing on me and I love her in the print ads. The Cabaret was a place where people felt comfortable. They did not have to stick to the usual rules of society. Shot in Paris, the birthplace of the Cabaret, the FW’12 HUDSON Cabaret campaign is a celebration of HUDSON Jeans’ 10 year anniversary in September 2012. Hosted by Georgia May Jagger, and featuring shows by the likes of human beat boxer Tez and Brooklyn electro pop band Au Revoir Simone, HUDSON creates a campaign that applauds self expression and an inspired free thinking attitude. images: courtesy of Hudson Jeans
It’s so lovely to see a beautiful ad campaign for a Canadian designer. I’m so blown away by how great these images for Lucian Matis Fall 2012 are. I saw Lucian’s fall collection during Toronto Fashion Week this march. I’ve included the video so you can get an appreciation of the collection. It was stunning Photography by: Greg Swales Production Assistant: Ashley Gesner Hair & Make-up: Anna Nenoiu, P1M Model: Leigh Hoby, Ford Models This one is my favourite. images: courtesy of Lucian Matis
The Hudson Fall 2012 ad campaign is really good. They’ve used print and video this season. The Leeloo jean has the best video that brings back the running man courtesy of French dancer, Amelie Poulian.
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.

I love, love this campaign by Lanvin for the fall winter 2012 – 2012 collection. Alber Elbaz grabbed some unique individuals from New York ranging from 18 to 82 years in age. It looks great and I love the selection of people. I’m also loving the number of black people in the campaign, yay Alber. “I was interested to bring these clothes back to the street somehow, and seeing how they look on different ages, different sizes,â€ Elbaz told WWD. “It felt like a crazy family, and I like that.â€(source) The accompanying Lanvin Fall Winter 2012 – 2013 ad campaign video is really good too. No dancing this time, the just people talking. You can see the rest of the campaign online at the Lanvin Facebook page. images: Lanvin Facebook
I’m loving Chloe Sevigny these days. Hit and Miss is an amazing show and Chloe does a great job in the role. I’m on a Chloe fangirl high right now and these ads are just so much fun from the crazy prints to the ridiculous tea party concept. She is seriously looking great in these ads. images: miumiu.com
I love the Spring Summer 2012 Kenzo Ad Campaign. So many black girls in one campaign image, I love it. Photographer Mario Sorrenti shoots models Alek Wek, Ajak Deng and Nairoby Matos. The Spring Summer 2012 Kenzo collection is the debut from Opening Ceremony owners, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim. Their fall show had the likes of Chloe Sevigny, Spike Jonze and Jason Schwartzman taking part. I didn’t pay any attention to the collection last year but I’m interested now because of this ad campaign. There is a cute behind the scenes video also. images: noirfacade.livejournal.com, thefashionspot.com
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: fashiongonerogue.com
Can I have a Givenchy surfboard please? I love the clash of two things I love in this ad campaign, Givenchy and Surfing. I’ve never surfed before (only Boogieboarding in Barbados as a child) but I’m really attracted to life by the water and board sports. Mariacarla Boscono is looking great in the ads and this makes me happy since I really didn’t like her YSL SS12 ads.

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.

It’s Spring Summer 2012 Ad Campaign time and I adore the Proenza Schouler ad campaign with Natasha Poly. These shots make the collection look so desirable to me.Â Except for the shoes, they are still kinda ugly. Photography: Willy Vanderperre Styling: Olivier Rizzo images: fashiongonerogue.com
This is fashion gold. The video is perfect awkward companion to the Lanvin Fall Winter 2011 – 2012 print ad campaign.
