The Spring 2014 Oscar de la Renta Campaign Disappoints (Forum Buzz)

Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014

Last season, members of the tFS forums were swooning over the visually striking Oscar de la Renta campaign, which captured the collection so perfectly, resulting in images that were utterly gorgeous. This season, however, the campaign fails to make the same impact. Kate Bogucharskaia repeats the campaign. She is joined by Maybelline spokesmodel Emily DiDonato, who’s enjoying a major momentum, having just scored her first two Vogue covers (Vogue Paris and Vogue Turkey). The cast sounds promising. So what are the issues with this campaign?

“The models look frozen while the clothes are girly and light,” according to Nymphaea.  

HelaFav5 shared similar sentiments: “Last season's campaign was so much better. The models look dead,” she posted.

It's nearly impossible to disagree with those statements. The models lack presence and almost fade into the boring background. But not just the underwhelming performance by the models earned criticism. Thatsfierce dislikes the hair, while ChristyLeReveur thinks the styling "is awful." 

And kab348’s verdict? “This. is. not. good.”

For its next issue, i-D is running just a single cover: Edie Campbell appears on the front of the publication's Pre-Spring 2014 Issue, photographed by Alasdair McLellan. In place of the iconic i-D wink, the British model rubs her right eye, her gaze sleepy.

"There are no rules," reads the caption running along the bottom of the cover, to which tFSer Avogadro replied, "So there are no rules to stop Edie from appearing everywhere?" It's not a stretch to say that the British model is having a moment. This year alone, Campbell has starred in campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Jil Sander, Dior and Sandro; she's also appeared in three international editions of Vogue (Paris, Japan and UK). It's only Feburary.

Robyn Lawley Covers Cosmopolitan Australia’s March 2014 Issue

robyn-lawley-cosmo-australia

She’s had her share of page time in Cosmopolitan Australia, so it’s about time Robyn Lawley scored her very own cover. Now the 6’2” Aussie stunner has done just that.

Managing to capture our attention in spite of some very Cosmo headlines and a shocking pink background, the coup is definitely deserved. The magazine previously cast her in December 2013 for a bikini shoot in which she wore her own swimwear line.

Scoring magazine covers is hardly a new experience for Lawley. In 2011, she scored the cover of Elle France (alone) and Vogue Italia (alongside Tara Lynn and Candice Huffine), and in that same year starred in a spread for Vogue Australia – the first time (welp) the magazine had ever shot a larger model.

The following year she was the first non-sample sized model to be hired by Ralph Lauren. And in 2013 she really cemented herself into the fashion zeitgeist, penning an article for the Daily Beast addressing the same dangerous “thigh gap” trend referenced here.  

But this is the first time, to our knowledge, one of her covers hasn’t been tarred by the words “plus-sized.” Perhaps 2014 will also be the year Lawley gets a cover that makes no reference to her size at all?

Kate Moss Shows Off Her Styling Skills at Vogue

Proving to all of us that Kate Moss' new title at British Vogue is not just another string on her ridiculously overstrung bow, the model has styled her first fashion shoot in her new role as contributing fashion editor.

Moss is no stranger to being featured in Vogue, having graced the front cover alone 34 times in her modelling history. Yet, this story has shown a whole new side to her, despite the fact that you do not see her in any shot.

Working alongside photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the 40-year-old cast Canadian/Ukranian model Daria Werbowy to star in a grungy story entitled ‘Cause Celibre’ that is out in the latest edition of Vogue, on sale February 6.

Taking inspiration from the rebellious glamour of Seventies psychedelic punk band Devil May Care, Moss clearly has touched on her own image and musical influences as she styles Daria in a range of choppy dark wigs and luxe rock pieces from Lanvin, lame jumpsuits and plunging Saint Laurent mini dresses while she reclines in a convertible car and silk laden bed.

Considering that she has already turned her hand to fashion design, music, singing and charity ambassador, it is hardly a surprise that styling also comes naturally to her, and even more so after over 25 years of wearing the brainchild creations of a plethora of the worlds greatest designers and stylists.

In this month’s editors letter, Alexandra Shulman describes her as "one of the most free spirits of our age," describing how Kate took hold of the story, from "gathering the initial mood board to talking me through the rail of clothes in the Vogue fashion room … Kate took on the complete role of the fashion editor." It sounds like this is only the beginning for Mossy’s new career.
