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.
“You’d be surprised that ten years of milking cows actually prepared me for this,” says Candice Swanepoel. The South African model offers up this personal tidbit and much more in Free People’s latest short, A Day in the Life of Candice Swanepoel, which debuts exclusively here. The feel-good video captures a jovial Swanepoel with tousled tresses in airy frocks, slouchy boots, and layered baubles, all of which are featured in Free People’s July catalog, of which she is the face. A refreshing approach to the oft-swimsuit-clad, glamorized Swanepoel, the Duncan Winecoff and Guy Aroch codirected film reminds us, “Don’t ever forget where you came from.” Check out the flick above.
Cara Delevingne, who’s less than thrilled about a recent Vogue profile that basically describes her as being narcoleptic, is reportedly set to front Topshop’s Fall ’14 global campaign. She’ll be the first model to star in the international ads solo. According to British Vogue, no images are available yet, but we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes open. Even if Delevingne doesn’t.
If anyone can fill the shoes of Kate Moss—literally and figuratively—it’s Gisele Bündchen, who has replaced the Brit supermodel as the new face (and feet) of Stuart Weitzman. Also known as the wealthiest model in history, Bündchen appears in the Mario Testino-lensed Fall ’14 campaign wearing white jeans, spiky ankle boots, and nothing else. In addition to her international appeal, perfect bronzed skin, and million-dollar physique, Bündchen’s versatility made her a natural choice for Weitzman.
The advertising campaign will appear in the U.S., Italy, France, England, Dubai, Germany, Spain, and Asia. Fans can watch a behind-the-scenes video on stuartweitzman.com.
The Fall campaigns are slowly rolling out, and tonight we can reveal that Suki Waterhouse and Cara Delevigne are the headlining faces of the Fall ’14 Burberry campaign. Delevingne, a Burberry ad vet (her first campaign for the house was Spring 2011), flashes her signature smile in the Mario Testino-lensed snaps, while Waterhouse, who’s making her ready-to-wear campaign debut, strikes a more pensive pose in the brand’s artisanal Fall wares. “It’s such a dream come true to be part of this Burberry campaign!” Waterhouse told Style.com. “A special moment that I’ll always remember.” We’d bet up-and-coming male model Oli Green, who has previously walked in Burberry Prorsum shows, won’t soon forget his time on set working with the British beauties, either. Have a first look at the campaign here, exclusively on Style.com.
