French crystal manufacturer Baccarat is hosting a couture week blowout this evening. And after 250 years in business, a celebration at Maison Baccarat is certainly in order. To fete the milestone birthday, the company commissioned three short films by directors Sonia Sieff, Joséphine de la Baume, and Chiara Clemente—all of which revolve around a love story. The series, titled “Legendary Stories,” will premiere at the sure-to-be sparkling affair. Sieff’s film, which stars Caroline de Maigret and Thierry Frémont, sees two ex-lovers rekindle their flame while swilling red wine out of brilliant Baccarat glasses. The heady work debuts exclusively here. And don’t forget to check back later today for our complete party report.
The 25th annual ANDAM Fashion Award ceremony will take place on July 3, and today it was announced that seven new judges will be joining the expert panel. John Demsey (group president, Estée Lauder Companies Inc.), Caroline de Maigret (music producer and model), Stefano Martinetto (CEO, Tomorrow London Ltd.), François-Henri Pinault (CEO, Kering), Xavier Romatet (CEO, Condé Nast France), Anne-Sophie Von Clear (Le Figaro), and Ellen von Unwerth (photographer, pictured left) will determine who will win the grand prize of 250,000 euros and far-reaching global recognition. The new team joins such returning judges as curator Pamela Golbin, Colette’s Sarah Andelman, and Style.com’s Nicole Phelps.
For those who didn’t get their fill after Marc Jacobs’ decadent, retrospective farewell show in October, the designer today presented a bonus swan song for Louis Vuitton: the Spring ’14 campaign. Lensed by Steven Meisel, the ads pay tribute to Jacobs’ Vuitton muses, including Catherine Deneuve, Sofia Coppola, Caroline de Maigret, Gisele Bündchen, Edie Campbell, and Fan Bingbing. They may have been Jacobs’ inspirations, but we have a feeling these leading ladies will stay in the Vuitton family under Nicolas Ghesquière’s reign.
If you live below Fourteenth Street, you’re going to be seeing a lot of Kenza Fourati tomorrow. The Tunisian model is the star of cult downtown basics label BLK DNM’s latest “Wild” campaign. Lensed by the brand’s founder and creative director, Johan Lindeberg, the images have become BLK DNM’s signature, though slightly unorthodox, mode of advertising. Lindeberg takes raw snaps of models like Gisele, Caroline de Maigret, and Karen Elson in BLK DNM’s second-skin jeans and leather jackets, turns them into posters, and plasters them across downtown Manhattan. It’s a bit of a guerrilla approach, if you will.
The newest installment, which was shot last week during a trip to Rio de Janeiro, has a particularly powerful message. Fourati is highly active in the political and social revolution in her native Tunisia, and Lindeberg wanted her strength to come through in the snaps. “The scenery was beautiful, but the shoot was dangerous, because Kenza was standing on a ledge. But she didn’t care,” Lindeberg told Style.com. “She just raised her fist to the sky spontaneously. I could feel that her energy was real—that she felt the same feeling that she does on the streets of Tunis, protesting, shouting, ‘Dégagé, let go!” to the former government. The pure energy is the strength of the picture.” Catch the campaign’s debut here, exclusively on Style.com.
