Gucci Releases New Timepieces and Jewelry Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Gucci's latest advertising campaign surfaced earlier today. The campaign was released at Baselworld 2014. The images were shot by Sølve Sundsbø and evoke the creative aesthetic of 1960s photographers Franco Rubartelli and Olivo Barbieri. Nadja Bender and Tommaso De Benedictis were selected to front the campaign which is slated for release in April.

Karl Lagerfeld Photographs Vanessa Paradis for Elle France (Forum Buzz)

Long-term Karl Lagerfeld muse and Chanel campaign girl, Vanessa Paradis fronts the latest issue of Elle France. The French actress is photographed by Karl Lagerfeld and is wearing a piece from Chanel's Spring 2014 collection.

This isn't the first time Paradis and Lagerfeld have worked together. The pair has collaborated for numerous magazine spreads and advertising campaigns. Paradise has also fronted various Chanel campaigns (my personal favorite being from 2005 for Chanel's latest handbag line).

"I normally don't like anything Jessica does in magazines, coz for me she's a great walker but not a mind-blowing editorial girl HOWEVER this is lovely, so good on her, THIS is a great shot," wrote Bertrando3.

Littlekiki was a little unsure about Chaix's styling: "Something about the styling makes her look older than usual, but gorgeous nonetheless."

"Stunning!!! IMO, I find that Vogue China's Collection Covers are far better than their main covers," enthused fashionlover2001.

Maxlinden also shared the same positive sentiments: "Gorgeous as usual. Beautiful cover."

British Retailer Hobbs Opens Stateside in Bloomingdales

These days when we hear the name Hobbs, we also think of it as being one of the Duchess of Cambridge’s favourite stores. With humble beginnings as a standalone store in London’s pretty Hampstead, it has since expanded throughout the UK and Ireland with even a few international franchises.

Now, U.S. based fans of Kate Middleton's style will be happy to know that the British retailer has decided to try its luck overseas, and is reportedly opening up a shop inside five Bloomingdale's department stores stateside. This includes Tysons Corner in Virginia, The Shops at Riverside New Jersey, and Chestnut Hill in Boston.

The first in the series of openings took place this week in Bloomingdales on 59th Street in New York. The collections available perfectly sum up Hobbs’ British heritage with a selection of fine quality tailoring and accessories on offer. Price points begin at around $149 for jersey items to $225 and up for dresses.

If you can’t make it over to one of its U.S. concessions, or haven’t got the patience for one near you to open up, you can always peruse the virtual rails at Hobbs.com.

‘The Face’ Contestant Amanda Gullickson Tells Us What It’s Like to Shoot a Commercial [Season 2, Episode 4]

[Season 2, Episode 4 of The Face aired on Wednesday and today we're recapping the episode with contestant Amanda Gullickson (you can find out more about her here). The South Carolina native has been blogging for us exclusively about the show and we encourage you to tune to Oxygen next Wednesday at 8/7 C to find out whether Amanda continues on to the next round. And be sure to check back in with theFashionSpot every week for an inside look at the previous night's episode.]

Another week has come and thankfully my teammate Ray returned from the elimination room last week! This week we find out that there will no longer be any test shoots…it is straight into the campaigns with no practice!

For this challenge, we got to do an Alex and Ani commercial and I was so excited for it! I feel that a major advantage I have on a lot of the girls is my personality. I know I just have to use it to my advantage and really bring a lot of energy. I have to really allow my personality to shine through, but most importantly make the product shine. Because as Naomi says, "It isn’t about the girls, it’s about the product." 

On the rooftop we had some time to work on our script. I feel we did a great job as a team developing ours. And, of course, Lydia came to the rescue to help us make the final touches. She also had us do repetitive exercises to help us remember our lines. Boy, did these come in handy when it came time for the camera! As always, we were the first team to go.

Once we got out on set, the nerves started flowing, but mine were good nerves. I was ready to win this! The order of our lines was Allison first, Ray second, and myself last. We were doing good and getting better each take it seemed like until Allison started to get distracted. She heard Naomi and Anne talking behind her and clearly was not at ease with all they had to say. Everyone is different in how they handle things, personally I would have used it as motivation to show them they are wrong, but Allison felt differently. I felt bad for her having to hear everything, especially since it had such an effect on her performance. More then that, it not only affected her performance but our performance as a team overall. 

We were on a 15-minute time limit and time was running out. A very big misinterpretation in this episode was that everyone was qualified to win when the client made his decision. In the 15 minutes we had, we never managed to get a clean take under 30 seconds. So, we were disqualified and could not have won. This is really too bad because if we could have just been a few seconds quicker, we would have won this week no doubt in my mind!

Reality of it, we didn’t win, Team Anne won again. Time for another one of us to face elimination. I feel Lydia made the right and fair decision by putting Allison up for elimination due to her performance this week. She was the weakest on our team, but in no way she is the weakest girl here. She did not deserve to go home and I am glad Anne gave her the chance to stay. Again, team Lydia gets our girl back, yay us!  I hate to see Alana go, but it is time for us to refocus and win this next campaign.

Be sure to watch The Face Wednesdays at 10/9C on Oxygen. You can follow me on Twitter and Instagram at @A_Gullickson.
