Louis Vuitton Handbags Spring Summer 2014 Ad Campaign


Actress Michelle Williams and photographer Peter Lindbergh are teaming up once again for Louis Vuitton‘s latest handbags campaign.

The 33 year old Academy Award nominated actress models the new Louis Vuitton Lockit, a bag originally launched in 1958 and was unearthed in the brand’s archives in 2006. It features a leather tab with a padlock on the side and retails at £2,400.

In the fourth image below she wears a white gold and diamond Lockit bracelet sealed with a padlock in a corresponding design to the bag.

Other bags features in the campaign are the Alma (in vivid orange) and the Capucines which takes its name from the rue des Capucines in Paris. The campaign was styled by Carine Roitfeld. (source)

Featured Article: InStyle US 2013 Covers Recap


Ariel Foxman as InStyle US editor in chief is still keeping the magazine’s trademarks on the cover: white background, white masthead logo with colored panel, and hot in-the-moment celebrities. We don’t mind those three, the only thing they should fix, in our opinion, is the amount of headlines. It’s to packed like the American edition of Marie Claire and Vogue. We just wish that the great images of the cover star wasn’t covered by the awkwardly placed headlines, especially on the hair.

The perfect cover example would be Zooey Deschanel‘s April issue. They put the majority of the headlines on one side, with small amount of text on the other side. But then again, text placement is always depends on the image they picked as the cover itself. They could do better, but we still appreciate what they’ve done this year.

On celebrity side, they chose actresses who got big movies/series/project coming out close to the magazine published date such as Amanda Seyfried who starred in Les Miserables, trio of Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis, and Michelle Williams who were promoting Oz The Great and Powerful, Zooey Deschanel of New Girl, Julianne Moore of Carrie remake, Taylor Swift who performed on Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show two days ago, and The Hunger Games‘ leading girl, Jennifer Lawrence (the cover was shot before she cut her hair).

Michaelangelo di Battista, Giampaolo Sgura, and Dusan Reljin are the three photographers who were hired by InStyle to shot their covers in 2013. Italian born di Battista photographed the March issue with Rachel, Mila and Michelle, May issue with Emily Blunt, September issue with Drew Barrymore, and December issue with Jennifer Lawrence.

Fellow Italian Giampaolo Sgura shot the April issue with Zooey Deschanel, August with Olivia Wilde, October with Julianne Moore, and November with Taylor Swift. Last but not least, Dusan Reljin, who was born in Serbia and is a Norwegian citizen, snapped the same amount of covers for the magazine with cover stars Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez, and Salma Hayek.

Louis Vuitton Handbags 2013 Ad Campaign



32 year old Academy Award-nominated actress, Michelle Williams, is fronting the 2013 handbags campaign of Louis Vuitton that was snapped by Peter Lindbergh. She goes a long way since starring on the infamous TV series, Dawson’s Creek (1998-2003) as Jen Lindley.

While the new handbags are the central focus — the W, a graphic blend of monogram canvas and multicolored leather, the Capucines, a tote exalting Vuitton’s leather craftsmanship — Williams wears looks from Louis Vuitton’s fall collection by Marc Jacobs, and occasionally leans on a vintage trunk.

The campaign was styled by Jacob K, with Sam McKnight responsible for the hair and Stéphane Marais for the make up.

Featured Article: Vogue Germany 2012 Covers Recap


German top catwalker Toni Garrn is rising back to the occasion this year. She landed quite a number of editorials, campaigns and covers in 2012. The 20 year old already booked the Spring Summer 2013 campaign stint for Max Mara Studio and Hugo Boss Black. She also landed two covers slots for her homeland Vogue, for August and December issue, both photographed by Alexi Lubomirski.

The Wimbledon born photographer also snapped three other images as the front page, featuring models Lais Ribeiro (March), Carolyn Murphy (June) and actress Salma Hayek (September). Claudia Knoepfel & Stefan Indlekofer are the only ones who shot more than one covers for the magazine this year, besides Lubomirski. The Switzerland duo shot the May and July issue featuring models Guinevere Van Seenus and Kendra Spears. The rest of the covers were photographed by top names: Greg Kadel (January), Brigitte Lacombe (February), Peter Lindbergh (April), Camilla Akrans (October), and Daniel Jackson (November).

We loved the strong black and white image by Greg Kadel. The orange masthead really brighten it up. We also love Michelle Williams‘ cover in which she channelled Marilyn Monroe. She really looks like her! Do you have favourite cover(s) from Vogue Germany this year? Click here to read our 2011 recap, and here for 2010 recap.

Featured Article: Flare 2012 Covers Recap


Flare magazine’s Fashion Director Elizabeth Cabral styled most of the covers on this year’s line up for the Canadian monthly fashion publication. Well, that’s because three out of twelve front pages were a reprint.

Scarlett Johansson‘s May cover by Alexi Lubomirski was reprinted from the February 2009 issue of Harper’s Bazaar US. Michelle WilliamsJuly cover was a reprint from her editorial inside the December 2011 issue of Elle UK. Last but not least, Flare‘s December cover featuring Keira Knightley who’s promoting Anna Karenina, was photographed by Terry Tsiolis and published earlier in the March 2011 issue of Elle UK.

As always, Cabral did a great job with the styling for the magazine’s covers this year. She styled Canadian models Jessica Stam in a purple lace Tom Ford dress for January issue (Stam‘s second cover in just four months!) and Coco Rocha in Ashley Rowe vest, Joe Fresh bright orange skirt and Louis Vuitton strappy shoes for February cover.

Revenge star Emily VanCamp wears Emilio Pucci yellow embroidered dress for the March cover by Chris Nicholls, who also photographed Coco‘s cover. Nicole Richie wears Roberto Cavalli‘s gold paillettes jacket and matching skirt for the April cover, while model turned actor Brooklyn Decker wears Peter Pilotto‘s gorgeous sleeveless peplum dress for June issue. Both covers were photographed by Max Abadian who also snapped the total of 7 front pages this year! He also responsible for the covers that’s featured Jessica Stam, Rose Byrne (in Marchesa), Lindsey Wixson (in Prabal Gurung), Milla Jovovich (in Calvin Klein Collection), and Claire Danes (in Fendi)

Flare is always been our favourite magazine because they keep producing beautiful covers. We love most of their covers (even though they used three reprints this year) especially Stam, Decker, Wixson and Jovovich version. Feel free to the links and check out their 2011 and 2010 covers line up.
