Edie Campbell is no one-trick pony. The much-loved model, who is the face of countless new ad campaigns (Bottega Veneta, Lanvin, Saint Laurent, and Alexander McQueen among them), is also a competitive horsewoman in her (probably limited) spare time. This afternoon, she showed off her equestrian skills at the Glorious Goodwood Ladies Charity Race in Chichester, England, and took home the Magnolia Cup. According to British Vogue , it was admittedly a high-fashion horse race: Vivienne Westwood designed some of the jockeys’ uniforms, jeweler Theo Fennell dreamed up the sculpture prizes, and Tom Cruise handed out the awards. Campbell participated in the hopes of raising £10,000 for The Reading Agency, a charity that promotes the importance of reading for both children and adults. You can still sponsor her here.
This week, Style.com editors turned their attention to the trends you’ll be wearing this Fall. Our Look of the Day polls asked you to vote on everything from patched-up jeans to androgynous boiler suits, plus a Miami Swim Week round-up to get you inspired for your holiday vacations. On Monday, we rounded up a handful of utilitarian flight suits we’ve spotted of late. You voted for Hanne Gaby Odiele’s metallic number, which stood out in a sea of stilettos and couture during Paris Fashion Week in February. A close runner-up was Edie Campbell, who opted for a workwear-inspired suit last year at Glastonbury.
Tuesday, we took note of another major street style trend: patches. Laetitia Paul’s Louis Vuitton jacket covered in giant, varsity-style insignia looked especially fresh on the streets of London. Tommy Ton also spotted a girl with Dior’s patched-up mini bag, which looked cool with combat boots. We’ll be trying out the trend this fall with easy-to-wear patchwork jeans, like the ones in Christopher Kane’s Resort collection. On Wednesday, our focus shifted to the bronzed babes at Miami Swim Week, where Mara Hoffman showed another winning collection. She posed backstage with models in her super-bright, tribal-inspired suits, which took first place in your book. We saw even more bold looks at RVCA, Gottex, and Wildfox. What else was on our minds this week? Off-the-shoulder silhouettes, landscape prints, and so much more. Click here for a slideshow of the winning looks, plus a few runners-up.
Without a doubt, Edie Campbell is fashion’s muse-of-the-moment. Coming off of several seasons of stellar editorial and runway work, the It Brit model’s star continues to rise this summer with a deluge of recently released campaigns. Last week alone, Campbell debuted in ads for Alexander McQueen and Lanvin. The latter’s Tim Walker-lensed shoot was a true family affair: Campbell posed alongside her mom, Sophie Hicks; dad, Roddy; mullet-rocking brother Arthur; younger sister Olympia; and her oft-Instagrammed horse, Dolly.
In addition to being a mainstay on the Saint Laurent catwalk, Campbell is also the new face of YSL Beauty’s Black Opium fragrance and has landed yet another Marc Jacobs Beauty campaign. Other recent work includes Bottega Veneta’s Fall ’14 series lensed by David Sims, as well as ads for Hugo Boss and Sandro. Sweetening the deal is Campbell’s latest Vogue Italia group cover (in which she premieres a freshly lightened blond shag) photographed by Steven Meisel. With her versatile, aristocratic look and wry sense of humor, it’s no wonder the industry can’t seem to get enough Edie right now. We approve.
Every day we ask Style.com readers to weigh in on the latest trends. Whether it’s overalls, floral prints, or graphic tees, we trust you to make the call in our Look of the Day poll. With Resort and menswear shows in full swing this week, we’ve been spoiled with new trends to try. On Monday, our eyes were on crisp, all-white ensembles. It was no surprise that Edie Campbell’s sporty Hugo Boss Resort look won top prize—think of it as normcore at its finest. Narciso Rodriguez, Derek Lam, Rosie Assoulin, and dozens more are in favor of head-to-toe ivory as well. On Tuesday, we saw short shorts make a comeback for both women and men. Mary Katrantzou showed her trademark eye-catching prints on high-waisted, up-to-there mini shorts. Even the boys can try out the trend next season: At Calvin Klein Collection, Italo Zucchelli layered cropped neon shorts over longer boxer briefs. On Wednesday, we got into the Shark Week spirit with Jaws-inspired looks. Theophilus London performed at Philipp Plein’s Spring ’15 menswear show last Saturday on the back of a Jet Ski and sported an appropriate shark-embroidered vest (above). Mark your calendars—Shark Week premieres August 10 on Discovery Channel.

Tomas Maier understands the strength in patterns. Each season, the designer teams up with a different photographer for “The Art of Collaboration,” Bottega Veneta’s series of seasonal advertising campaigns. With past collaborators including David Armstrong, Collier Schorr, and Pieter Hugo, each campaign is lensed with a completely unique perspective. For Fall ’14, Maier tapped British photographer David Sims, best known for his striking, minimal images.
“I am a great admirer of David’s photographs,” Maier told Style.com. “We thought that his stark, pared-down aesthetic would be a natural fit with the graphic elements of this collection. The result is very impactful, and I was extremely pleased with the collaboration.” Maier cast muse-of-the-moment (and frequent Bottega Veneta catwalker) Edie Campbell to model the colorful, energetic collection. A first look at the campaign debuts exclusively here. A behind-the-scenes film will go live on bottegaveneta.com later this summer.
