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.
Though he worked with the same megawatt team of photography duo Inez & Vinoodh and stylist Joe McKenna, Jason Wu had an easier time shooting his first Fall ’14 Hugo Boss campaign than he did lensing his This Is Boss film for the brand back in January—probably because this time around, there was no blizzard to deal with. Debuting exclusively here, Wu’s inaugural ads for the German house star Edie Campbell (who emerged as Wu’s muse when Wu presented his first Boss collection back in February) and Scott Eastwood. Yes, the ruggedly handsome son of Clint. “It was very important that the first campaign was character-driven,” Wu told Style.com. “Edie Campbell not only stands for the new vision of Boss womenswear, but she is the definition of that confident, sexy, and individual person that I would like the collection to reflect.” As for the menswear snaps, he offered, “The idea of Boss menswear is keeping up tradition. Scott is all about channeling old Hollywood. I love how much he looks like his father, who is absolutely legendary, and he has this classic sensibility that feels completely modern at the same time.”
The photographs are stern and simple—no fancy backdrops or locations this time around—but they’re jam-packed with emotion. That duality is integral to Wu’s Boss aesthetic. “The pictures are so strong that they didn’t need any special layout. They’re just fully focused on the [model], the clothes, and the attitude. It’s about personality within a very rigorous sensibility. And it’s important to have both.”
