With January issues now in hand and February issues soon to arrive, it’s officially Spring ’11 ad season. And while we’ve brought you exclusive debuts from Michael Kors, Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent, and Pringle of Scotland, we didn’t want to leave out any other worthy competitors either. Below, a roundup of some recent strong showings, from Lindsey Wixson for Alexander McQueen to Leighton Meester for Missoni (above, left to right). Continue Reading “The Campaigns Keep Coming” »
Berlin fashion week is now in full swing, and Calvin Klein threw a fashion show and epic party to celebrate the occasion. (A few Teutons can be forgiven for being distracted by the Germany/Spain World Cup game, which the brand screened at the fête.) As you’d expect, plenty of house favorites, like newly signed face of Calvin Klein Underwear, Zoe Saldana, and Diane Kruger, who wore Calvin Klein Collection to the Met ball this year, were on hand. The dress code? All Calvin, of course. Saldana wore a pale green cutout CKC dress with the platform, contrast-heel pumps Francisco Costa showed for Resort. Kruger, on the other hand, went even more classic-Calvin minimal in a sleeveless white mini-shift and towering, lug-soled platform sandals. So who wore it best? Do you like Zoe’s edgier, of-the-moment look, or do you prefer Diane’s pared-down, old-school chic?
Of the hundreds of gowns at this week’s Met ball, the most striking were also the most restrained. Zoe Saldana and Diane Kruger looked chic in unadorned Calvin Klein Collection gowns; ditto Jessica Stam in long-sleeved Rachel Roy. Plenty of minimal eveningwear could be found on the Fall runways, too. “Less is more these days,” Yigal Azrouël told us. “People are tired of all the froufrou and are just craving simplicity.” The designer turned out long, sleek dresses notable for how covered up they were, as did Antonio Berardi and Andrew Gn. At Stella McCartney and The Row, meanwhile, hemlines were raised, but the silhouettes were just as streamlined.

Suave overload: Guy Ritchie is shooting Jude Law for a Dior Homme fragrance ad. We’re a little concerned so much roguishness in one place may throw the earth off its orbit, but it’s a risk worth taking. [WWD]
And speaking of models, rumor has it that Lara Stone is to be the new face of both Calvin Klein Collection and Calvin Klein jeans—a tribute, perhaps, to her high-fashion chops and her sexy (and much-remarked-upon) curves. CK is keeping mum, but if we were Eva Mendes, we’d be hitting the audition circuit a little harder right now. [WWD]
