Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing wanted to highlight the beauty and uniqueness of different ethnicities, so for his Fall 2014 campaign the designer traded his friend Rihanna, who was the face of the Spring 2014 campaign, for an ethnically-diverse group of supermodels. Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevingne, Binx Walton, Ysaunny Brito, Issa Lish, and Kayla Scott star in the safari-themed campaign, which was shot by Mario Sorrenti and art directed and styled by Love magazine's Katie Grand. Love and American Vogue will be the first glossies to feature the ads.
Remember Cher Horowitz and her amazing outfit-selecting computer program from Clueless? Well if you are as big a fan of the movie as we are, you'll be happy to know that the computer program that dreams are made of is now a reality! Metail, a virtual retail company, has launched a virtual dressing room where customers create a MeModel that they can use to try on Cher's wardrobe and build different outfits, which can then be shared on Facebook. And of course that iconic yellow tartan blazer and skirt is available to try on.
Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington is kind of the last person we'd expect to see holding a cobalt Jimmy Choo change purse, but that's not to see we minded seeing his brooding face in one of the label's new ads. The star of the hit HBO series is now the face of the Jimmy Choo Fall 2014 men's ad campaign, as well as the new fragrance, MAN, and the Carrer' by Jimmy Choo sunglass collection. "Kit was the perfect choice for the campaign – he has an innate confidence and projects a playfully rebellious nature. He has an overtly masculine style that feels effortlessly cool and a great sense of humour, and beneath that intensity he is a true gentleman," said Jimmy Choo creative director Sandra Choi. Gotta say, we're pretty pleased with their choice for the campaign as well.
