On Set With Doutzen Kroes, Louis Vuitton Exposes Its Seams, Anna Dello Russo’s Packing Tips, And More…
Doutzen Kroes, coming soon to a theater near you—provided you live in the Netherlands. In April, the model announced she would be starring in a 3-D Dutch film (Nova Zembla) and this week, she shared a photo of herself running around the set wearing a vintage dress with her done up in ringlets.

Louis Vuitton is known for its elaborate stores and window displays around the globe and now, in a new book titled Louis Vuitton: Architecture & Interiors, the luxury brand reveals the details of its foundations. On October 1, it will roll out the 304-page tome ($130) filled with unseen architects’ sketches and interviews with interior design legends like Peter Marino. [WWD]
Anna Dello Russo, who has admitted she owns more than 4,000 pairs of shoes, is a light packer. On her blog, the editor advises, “The suitcase must be light as a feather.” How does she do that? She claims to only pack one pair of shoes. [Vogue.U.K.]
Elle Fanning is getting Somewhere fast. After starring in Marc Jacobs ad campaigns, the younger Fanning was photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for the cover of Love magazine this month. [Racked]
Naomi Campbell’s well-practiced snarl has found a perfect new outlet: The Fall ’11 Givenchy campaign, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Campbell is one of the major faces to front spots for Givenchy’s feline women’s collection, alongside Natalia Vodianova, Kristen McMenamy, and house favorite Mariacarla Boscono. (Though unlike in seasons past, each is shot separately, rather than in a roving pack.) Meanwhile, Rob Evans and Jonathan Marquez do the honors for the Rottweiler-inspired men’s collection. Above, the exclusive debut of the Naomi image (and below, a look at Evans’). Plus, the exclusive behind-the-scenes video, featuring the entire cast on the growl. Grrr!
With January issues now in hand and February issues soon to arrive, it’s officially Spring ’11 ad season. And while we’ve brought you exclusive debuts from Michael Kors, Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent, and Pringle of Scotland, we didn’t want to leave out any other worthy competitors either. Below, a roundup of some recent strong showings, from Lindsey Wixson for Alexander McQueen to Leighton Meester for Missoni (above, left to right). Continue Reading “The Campaigns Keep Coming” »
Since Victoria Beckham is one of my favorite (and valid) celebrity designers, I won’t be making any snide ladder climbing metaphors about her new Emporio Armani underwear campaign that just came out this morning. The images are quite the opposite of last season’s, which featured the global brand ambassadors languidly smoldering in some sort of boudoir. The latest pics, also shot by photog pair extraordinaire Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, are somewhat more athletic in nature: Mrs. Becks climbing a ladder sporting a gravity-defying ponytail, heels and not much more, and the pair posing with an enormous rope that I’m associating with the one that you were required to clamber up in grade school gym class. The couple (who together make a cool 32 million GBP for their work) certainly do justice to the unmentionables, and their perfect physiques make you want to hit the gym or perhaps move to an alternate airbrushed universe. What do you think of the new ad?
