Burberry’s Starry Smooch

-------

A behind the scenes shot of Burberry's Fall '13 campaign

If its recent campaigns are any indication, Burberry is seldom short on star power. Cara Delevingne, Emma Watson, and Romeo Beckham have all posed for the label, and today it can add Sienna Miller and fiancé Tom Sturridge to its list of famous faces. Lensed by Mario Testino, the house’s Fall ’13 ads depict the pair cuddling and kissing in Burberry’s new wares. A behind-the-scenes image of Miss Miller debuts above, and below we bring you a campaign snap of the cuddly couple. Continue Reading “Burberry’s Starry Smooch” »

V Magazine Goes Low-Def

-------

Even though it doesn’t hit newsstands until Thursday, V magazine’s summer issue has already inspired a ruckus—that’s what happens when you put a scantily clad Miley Cyrus on your cover. However, the issue, which is aptly titled “Drawn to Fashion,” boasts more than saucy Mario Testino-lensed snaps of Hannah Montana. Perhaps appealing to our taste for nostalgia, V has revived the craft of fashion illustration, turning out an edition that almost entirely consists of hand-drawn imagery and graphic art. Take, for instance, its “Face of the Future” spread, which, featuring the work of Spanish-born, London-based artist Ricardo Fumanal, debuts exclusively above. The subjects of his six-page story are some of contemporary fashion’s greatest female designers (Miuccia Prada, Rei Kawakubo, Sarah Burton, and Phoebe Philo among them), and their best looks from Fall 2013. Don’t get us wrong, we love the digital world, but now and again it’s nice to revisit the old school.

Girl Power: The Fourth Annual DVF Awards

-------

Friday night marked the fourth annual DVF awards, and newfangled British crooner Paloma Faith perhaps summed up the evening best. “It’s important that we as women get together and celebrate each other rather than what sometimes happens, or what is sometimes encouraged in the media—to be against each other,” said the singer, who accessorized her outfit with a statement-making necklace that read, “FEMINIST.”

Held at the United Nations, the annual event—which was hosted by von Furstenberg and Tina Brown—honors five women who have exhibited courage and leadership in their respective fields, and who have helped to advance the lives of other women in the process. This year’s winners—including Robin Roberts, Natalia Vodianova, Sunitha Kirshnan, Andeisha Farid of the Afghan Child Education and Care Organization, and Tammy Tibbetts of She’s the First—will all receive $50,000 grants from von Furstenberg’s foundation for continued charitable work and development. And everyone from Olympian Gabrielle Douglas—a.k.a. the “Flying Squirrel”—and Olivia Wilde to Mario Testino, Fran Lebowitz, and Gloria Steinem turned out to toast the winners.

Despite her broken arm (she opened her introduction to the crowd by emphatically stating “I will never. Go skiing. Again,” referring to last week’s accident in Aspen), von Furstenberg shone with as much poise as ever. “Style is about confidence. Look at Robin Roberts—she just went through the most horrible year—but her beauty, her light inside, is so big, and she’s beautiful. That’s the real beauty.”

Fame For Sale

-------

Art and celebrity, celebrity artists, the art of celebrity—it’s all a big blur. But an intriguing blur, nonetheless. Starting tomorrow, online auction house Paddle8 will play to our fascination with art, celebrity, and everything in between with Somebody, a fame-themed sale. Launching in collaboration with Interview magazine (i.e., the magazine that Andy Warhol—the grandfather of celebrity/art cross-pollination—founded), the auction will offer 40 celeb-centric works by the likes of Richard Avedon, Mario Testino, Richard Prince, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Warhol himself, and more. You can browse the sale, and its famous faces, until it ends on March 27.
