A Blaze of Color: Michelle Williams Styled by Carine Roitfeld for Louis Vuitton

Last summer, French luxury house Louis Vuitton released an accessories campaign featuring Michelle Williams, a new spokesmodel for the label. The ads, which broke in the September and October issues of fashion magazines worldwide, must have been a success, because the LVMH brand has just released a second campaign with the American actress. 

Photographed by Peter Lindbergh, who also shot last season's campaign, the ads were styled by former Paris Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld. The photos are a blaze of color, from the candy-hued bags to Williams' ultra-bright lips.

A ‘Photoshopped’ Doutzen Kroes Lands Fourth Cover of Vogue Neatherlands (Forum Buzz)

The May 2014 cover of Vogue Netherlands has surfaced on the forums. Dutch beauty Doutzen Kroes lands the cover for the fourth time, wearing a rather questionable hat. The Victoria's Secret regular was photographed by Duy Vo and styled by Martien Mellema.

Members of theFashionSpot were quick to brand the cover a post-production mess with kokobombon writing, "They PSed her so much she looks like she had bad plastic surgery imo…the styling looks bad also, that hat!"

HeatherAnne wrote, "They Photoshopped her to the point that she almost looks like a robot. So bad, and the styling is even worse. I give up on them."

"It looks like they have done something to her jawline and eyes which makes her face look really tense and odd. Quite ridiculous that this is all they can do with someone as stunning as Doutzen," continued Nepenthes.

Bertrando3 was also not impressed and suggested we move on to the next issue already: "The styling is really awful and the photography is very amateur indeed. Next!"

"Gosh, this reminds me of 90s euro teen mags… not good. I get so frustrated when cover images are lacklustre. I don't care if most people don't judge a magazine's contents by the cover, or if most readers toss a magazine out right after reading it — I like to leave my magazines out on display for the full month so it would be nice to have covers worth keeping. I've seen worse covers of course, but this is still disappointing," wrote iriswills.

Srdjan seemed to be a little tired of seeing Doutzen Kroes cover Dutch Vogue: "They're doing the same thing that British Vogue does with Kate [Moss]."

Watch: Li Xiaoxing and Zhao Lei Star in a Moody, Cinematic Fashion Film for Vs. Magazine

Li Xiaoxing Zhao Lei Unspoken Vs Magazine

Earlier today, the lovely people at Vs. Magazine released a new fashion film, Unspoken, starring models Li Xiaoxing and Zhao Lei and directed by Laspata Decaro.

Inspired by Asia's cinematic tradition, the short clip observes a moody, enigmatic couple. These two spend their time slinking around glamorous interiors — empty movie theaters, vacant bars, desolate restaurants, abandoned hallways, unoccupied hotel rooms. I think you get the gist: These beautiful people are either having an affair or they're the only two people left on earth.
