Spring/Summer 2014 Ad Campaigns Star Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Karen Elson, and More
The Spring/Summer 2014 have begun to bloom from the bleak midwinter like so many star-studded roses, and we're tweaking out over every one. They're heavily celebrity-centric; even the actual models are practically household names (ever heard of Cara Delevigne, Googlers of 2013?). The unveiling of a new ad campaign is almost better than unwrapping a Christmas present, so what better time to take a look?
Looks like Kate Moss hasn’t quite abandoned her Playboy gig yet, according to this sultry shot. She’s rocking the pin-up girl one-piece, lots of leg — and, of course, Weitzman’s gorgeous single-soled shoes.
Model Karen Elson could not make a debauched party-girl getaway look any more glamorous, as she scrambles out of a tacky restaurant booth, leaving her meal practically untouched.
Cara Delevingne has graduated from Victoria’s Secret and is now modeling the world’s most famous luxury lingerie brand. Does this mean the start of a new era — the bombshell/goofball hybrid?
Where is this casual hangout taking place and why weren’t we invited? Also: pastel for spring; who knew?
Rock-and-roll hair, a potentially tacky leopard bedspread, but no Bret Michaels in sight. The whole vibe is much more I-just-checked-into-the-Chelsea-hotel-to-have-a-glamorous-existential-crisis.
“Erykah, she’s an icon—come on!” said Riccardo Tisci, creative director of Givenchy, and we have to say that his casting of Badu as the new face of the French fashion house comes at an important time and place in an industry that’s (sort of) fighting racism. Givenchy has proven themselves a rare voice of inclusion in an industry that many accuse of discrimination, and honestly, could Tisci have picked a more generally awesome gal than Badu herself?
Marc Jacobs’ final campaign for LV was as dark and thoughtful as his final show, but don’t call it melancholy. According to Frédéric Winckler, Vuitton’s communications and events director, the ads aren’t depressive; rather, they’re a celebration “women who inspire Marc.” And those women would be: Edie Campbell (pictured,) Gisele Bündchen, Sofia Coppola, Catherine Deneuve, Fan Bingbing, and Caroline de Maigret.
Marc by Marc Jacobs
As usual, the Marc by Marc Jacobs ads give us a shiver of cognitive dissonance; we’d never really wear those clothes, but then again — now we want to.
And last but not least, we’ve got RIHANNA for BALMAIN (two icons so attitudinal that we couldn’t help but hit caps lock). Riri rocks that short, curly bob, and apparently belt/chain hybrids (and sultry steam rooms) are the new thing now.
