Lottie Moss Follows in Her Sister’s Footsteps as the New Face of Calvin Klein

-------

lottie-mossNothing comes between Calvin Klein and the Moss clan. Kate Moss famously posed for the label’s ad campaigns, alongside Mark Wahlberg, back in the nineties. Now her younger sister Lottie Moss is taking a turn as the face of the iconic American sportswear label. For its new Re-Issue Project with MyTheresa, Calvin Klein Jeans asked the 16-year-old to sport updated versions of its nine most classic pieces. The campaign was lensed by photographer Michael Avedon, who is also a legacy with the brand—his grandfather Richard Avedon photographed Brooke Shields for CK.

The capsule incudes original high-waisted skinny jeans and tapered jeans (popularized by none other than Kate), as well as denim jackets and shirts. The collection launches on MyTheresa on July 16, with prices ranging from $105 to $415. Here, a first look at the campaign.

Rita Ora Goes Marilyn for Roberto Cavalli

rita ora for roberto cavalli

Is Rita Ora the modern-day Marilyn Monroe? Roberto Cavalli certainly thinks so. The designer tapped the saucy songstress to be the face of his Fall ’14 campaign, in which she appears pinup glam with platinum locks. An exclusive look at the Francesco Carrozzini-lensed ads debuts above. “I love Rita’s energy—she’s strong, charismatic, and she’s a Renaissance woman,” Cavalli told Style.com. “I chose to portray her as a modern-day Marilyn, a contemporary interpretation of iconic sensuality.” Does this mean Mr. Cavalli prefers blonds?

The Top Models From Resort ’15

BLOG_triptych_1

Resort’s significance has grown across the board. For models, the season has become a particularly important platform for exposure outside of the standard ready-to-wear runways. During the busy summer months, many in-demand girls juggle shooting Pre-Spring lookbooks, advertising campaigns, and glossy editorials at once—in addition to jetting to far-flung destinations like Dubai or Monaco for big-budget brands’ Cruise shows. Here at Style.com, we’ve been keeping tabs—as usual—on models’ respective Resort performances. In general, the season was dominated by fresh-faced blonds like Lexi Boling, Harleth Kuusik, Nastya Sten, and Manuela Frey, who each made nine or more Resort appearances in lookbooks or on the catwalks. Tomboyish brunettes Mijo Mihaljcic and Waleska Gorczevski were hot on their heels with seven Resort cameos apiece. Meanwhile, we couldn’t get enough of spunky Binx Walton, who posed for Balmain and Fendi, among others, and Jamie Bochert—the Style.com/Print cover star turned up at The Row, Lanvin, and Emanuel Ungaro.

Kendall Jenner and a Pregnant Ashleigh Good Walk Chanel Haute Couture

-------

ashleigh and karlMaternitywear just got a whole lot chicer—and more expensive—thanks to Ashleigh Good, who closed this morning’s Chanel Haute Couture show in Paris during what appears to be her third trimester of pregnancy. While we’ve witnessed supermodels like Jourdan Dunn or Alessandra Ambrosio strut catwalks sporting visible baby bumps, it’s essentially unprecedented to send someone this far along down the runway. Leave it to Karl Lagerfeld to break down industry barriers.

Undoubtedly, Good’s lap around the Grand Palais in a gilded white empire-neck gown was a celebration of female power, strength, and overall womanliness— not to mention a push for new body image acceptance. While some critics may question the moral implications of today’s finale by dismissing it is as exploitive or a controversy-seeking stunt, it was ultimately a mutual decision between Lagerfeld and Good, who has become a part of the Chanel family in recent years.

jennerGood has walked in Chanel’s show the past nine seasons in a row (beginning with the brand’s 2013 Metiers d’Art spectacle in Scotland), so it was somewhat of a head-scratcher when she didn’t turn up in Dubai back in May. Lagerfeld has been instrumental in Good’s blast-off success, and regards the 22-year-old aristocratic beauty in the same light as Stella Tennant. In addition to lensing Good for multiple campaigns, Lagerfeld cast her to open four of his shows. She made the Spring ’13 Haute Couture collection a memorable one by appearing alongside Kati Nescher a lesbian bride. Outside of Chanel, the energetic Kiwi-by-way-of-Britain hasn’t skipped a beat, and has kept busy with editorial work. One thing’s for sure about Good’s future offspring: Hudson Kroenig just got a lot of competition.

In other Chanel news: Kendall Jenner made her Haute Couture debut on today’s runway. All in all, lots going on in Karl’s house.

EXCLUSIVE: Meet the Instagrammers Marc Cast in MBMJ’s Fall Campaign

This season, Marc by Marc Jacobs hosted a virtual casting call via Instagram to find the fresh faces for its Fall ’14 campaign. More than 70,000 hopefuls applied to model Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley’s first collection for the label. Nine were chosen, and their vivid, badass, Technicolor David Sims-lensed images were unveiled earlier this week. But just who, pray tell, are the dynamic individuals who star in the Katie Grand-styled snaps? Why not have a look at brand’s behind-the-scenes film, which debuts exclusively here, and find out? Pay attention to what these youngsters have to say, dear readers, because who knows, maybe Marc will cast you next season.
