Last time Brian Atwood tried to do a film, it was banned. Which wasn’t really surprising, considering the Mert & Marcus-lensed Fall 2012 short featured a completely naked Candice Swanepoel (save a sometimes-there corset and some killer Atwood boots) watching porn and rolling around with two muscular male models. But now that he’s worked out the kinks, Atwood is back for round two. The designer teamed up with the famed photographers again for his Spring ’13 film, which, inspired by Marilyn Monroe’s iconic pool scene in Something’s Got To Give, stars Eva Herzigova. Despite the fact that she’s nude (come on, what did you expect?), the film is a playful and, dare we say, tasteful expression of the seductive femininity around which Atwood’s shoes are built. “I think our last film and campaign was very sexual. It pushed the boundaries. But this is more feminine,” Atwood told Style.com. The video has a distinct Old Hollywood feel and shows Herzigova swimming around in a pair of floral heels (which Atwood thought resembled vintage swimming caps). “Yes, there is a man [you only see his arm as he reaches over the pool to give Herzigova a martini], but it’s all about her,” added the designer, who notes that Monroe’s “unapologetic sex appeal” is a constant source of inspiration. “She was mesmerizing—she had this power over men and women. And I think we captured that in a modern and very luxurious way.” Indeed, what could be more luxurious than wearing emeralds and sky-high sandals in a private pool? “Every woman wants to be that woman.” And Herzigova does a more than credible Marilyn impression. “When we were filming, I told Eva that I didn’t realize she was so curvaceous,” Atwood said. “And she leaned over to my ear and said, ‘I’m three months pregnant.’ ” Watch the debut of Atwood’s Spring ’13 film, above, exclusively on Style.com.
There wasn’t anything inherently minimal about the metallic leather judo socks and Japanese floral-print furs, bags and frocks in Miuccia Prada’s Spring 2013 collection. But simplicity—extreme simplicity—is precisely the concept behind the house’s Spring campaign, which debuts today exclusively on Style.com. Featuring some of our favorite women—like Eva Herzigova, Sasha Pivovarova, Amber Valletta, Raquel Zimmermann and more—the images, shot by Steven Meisel, do away with frills and thrills, letting Prada’s strong Spring stars (and clothes) shine.
