Haute Chicks


What girl wouldn’t love a Cartier diamond necklace or a pair of Van Cleef earrings? Few that we know. For his latest project, photographer Peter Lippmann, who counts fashion brands ranging from Cartier to Christian Louboutin as clients, toyed with that concept and dressed a slew of chicks (literally, chicks) in haute bijoux from high-end jewelry labels, including Van Cleef & Arpels, Buccellati, and more. Here, for your afternoon pick-me-up, check out these blinged-out birds dripping in diamonds and rubies for his new Luxury Chicks photo series.

Campaign Crawford


Lane Crawford, one of the top shopping destinations in the Far East, has a history of tapping top Asian models for its ads, and this season is no different. This time around, the retailer brought on Ming Xi, Xiao Wen Ju, and Wang Xiao to star in its Fall campaign, shot by Nick Knight. Edward Enninful styled the girls wearing the latest designer pieces from Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, Celine, Stella McCartney, Yves Saint Laurent, and more.

“The concept revolves around the idea of three tribes: Hard Leather, Tribal Street Wear, and Geometrics,” Enninful tells “I wanted to play with masculine and feminine, androgyny is always a theme that works, and an exaggerated sense of color and proportion always creates exciting imagery.” Here, has an exclusive first look at the ad images and the accompanying campaign film.

Introducing Instant Runway Photos And Bigger, Bolder Fashion Picks


See Fashion First. That tagline was firmly in place when I arrived at seven years ago, and speed has always been one of the defining elements of the site. Of course, the definition of speed has changed over time. In the old days—and by old days I mean four years ago—people used to express amazement that we could post runway photos within 24 hours. Each season since then, we’ve posted the images more quickly than the one before, and today I’m pleased to announce our latest upgrades, designed to ensure that you won’t find a faster or higher-quality fashion viewing experience. These include:

Instant shows. Starting with the Spring 2013 ready-to-wear season, we will be transmitting runway images directly from the venues for multiple shows a day. Now you’ll be able to see the top looks in as close to real time as possible.

Dramatically enhanced runway slideshows. We’re introducing bigger, richer images, added functionality like zoom, and more intuitive navigation. (You can find more details below.) As much as we value speed, we’re also focused on the depth and quality of our coverage.

These are the first in a series of new initiatives that you’ll see on the site in the coming weeks. If you have any comments or come across any technical issues, please e-mail us at Your feedback is vital as we continue our commitment to be the place where you can both see fashion first and see fashion best.

From Ulyana Sergeenko To Bill Cunngingham—The Fair With The Most Flair


Each year Vanity Fair sorts through the world’s most fashionable people, from princesses to photographers, to sort out the top style stars for its annual best-dressed list. It was newcomers to the list like the Courtin-Clarins girls who caught our attention in 2011, but they’ve been trumped by a new set of contenders on this year’s list, just released today. Who made the cut? Of course, there are several royals like the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, as well as big names like Diane Kruger and Alicia Keys. But fashion insiders like designer and street-style star Ulyana Sergeenko, Erika Bearman a.k.a. @OscarPRGirl, Tommy Ton favorite Robert Rabensteiner, Schiaparelli ambassador Farida Khelfa, more-is-more Jean Pigozzi of LimoLand, and photographer Bill Cunningham (pictured) also landed on the list. Click here to see all the names.
