Miu Miu is set to debut the fourth installment of its “Women’s Tales” short film series as part of the Venice Film Festival later this week. Miuccia Prada commissioned the project, which began last year with Zoe Cassavetes’ short The Powder Room), to celebrate young female directors from around the globe and explore feminine rituals and codes. After screening short movies by Cassavetes, Lucrecia Martel, and Giada Colagrande, Miu Miu will present director Massy Tadjedin’s It’s Getting Late Thursday night at Lido’s Sala Darsena. In the film, actresses Gemma Arterton, Rinko Kikuchi, Patricia Clarkson, and Aubrey Plaza get dressed up for a night out in Hollywood (wearing plenty of Miu Miu, of course). Before the crowds get to see the full film in Venice, Style.com has a first look at the trailer here. If you happen to be in Venice for the film festival, you can catch all of the project’s directors at live panel discussions in the Sala Tropicana on August 31 as part of Miu Miu’s Venice Days (a three-day showcase celebrating avant-garde cinema).
The house of Vuitton has access to just about every supe it could want for its ad campaigns—the latest stars Freja Beha Erichsen, Raquel Zimmermann, and Kristen McMenamy, and last season’s roped Christy Turlington, Karen Elson, and Natalia Vodianova—but for its fashion jewelry lookbook for Spring, the brand skipped the seasoned pros and went for friends instead. An international hodge-podge of It girls lent their services to the sixties pin-up inspired shots, including Alexandra Richards (above right), Rinko Kikuchi, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Sky Ferreira, and Nathalie Love. Of course, since these ladies are mostly part-time models, their full-time careers are listed, too—though, of course, they’re mainly of the It girl variety. There are actresses, TV announcers, DJs, singers, and even a “reporter and party girl,” but our favorite goes to Miss Mary Charteris (above left), modeling a pendant and necklace from the Cosmopolitan collection. Her job: “Aristocrat.”
