Nicolas Ghesquière continues to mold his vision for Vuitton today. WWD reports that the designer has tapped not one, but three leading photographers—Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz, and Juergen Teller—to lens his first campaign for the house. Marc Jacobs often worked with Steven Meisel during his reign at Vuitton, so it will be interesting to see how Ghesquière’s creative relationship with the above bold-faced names develops—if you’ll remember, he tapped Teller to shoot the conceptual Fall ’14 lookbook images (left), which debuted exclusively on Style.com the day of the runway show. Ghesquière’s Fall campaign will feature Liya Kebede (left) and Freja Beha Erichsen (both of whom walked in his Fall show), as well as actress Charlotte Gainsbourg. This move further proves that Ghesquière at Vuitton is a defining force to be reckoned with—as if there was ever any doubt.
The greatest photograph of a designer ever taken, Juergen Teller’s 2009 portrait of a nude Vivienne Westwood, is now available as a massive rug. Tomorrow, Barneys is launching a collection of limited-edition art rugs, including works by Scott Campbell, Helmut Lang, Marilyn Minter, Richard Prince, and more, rendered in hand-knotted Himalayan wool and silk. Here’s your exclusive first look at the high-art floor covering and the teaser video. All of the rugs will be on display at Barneys New York until June 9—excluding the Teller rug, which won’t be shown due to nudity. Nice to know Dame Viv is still too punk rock for Madison Avenue.
We waited for months and it was over in moments—Nicolas Ghesquière’s wildly anticipated debut show for Louis Vuitton marched down the runway in Paris this morning. And at the height of the LV by NG frenzy, the house sent us an exclusive first look at A Dozen Girls, a series of photographs by Juergen Teller. Shot at the brand’s headquarters, the portfolio presents twelve looks from the new collection on twelve models. CLICK TO VIEW THE SLIDESHOW. As the show notes declared, “The timeless is now.”

We were confronted with two big surprises when Marc Jacobs’ new campaign broke today. Firstly, he tapped David Sims, rather than his longtime collaborator Juergen Teller, to lens the Spring ’14 ads. And secondly, his close pal and campaign star, Miley Cyrus, is not shown in her typical, risqué form. There are no leotards, wagging tongues, or dancing bears here. Cyrus features alongside two models, and all are clad in Jacobs’ heavily embellished navy, black, and burgundy Spring ’14 collection. He even staged the ads on a dark beach, reminiscent of his acclaimed fashion show back in September. Cyrus’ messy hair (there’s not a twisted bun in sight), glowing skin, and moody facial expression finish off the look, and we must admit: It almost makes us forget about the whole twerking thing.
