Julia Nobis and Daria Werbowy Star in New Celine Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Celine Spring 2014 Campaign

Daria Werbowy is once again the star of the Celine campaign. While this should not surprise anyone (it being her 4th consecutive season of being the face of the brand), it’s more unexpected to see Australian model Julia Nobis also starring in the campaign. Having been a runway fixture for just about every relevant designer for many seasons, Julia is now finally getting the recognition that she deserves in print work this season. She just landed the January 2014 cover of Vogue Italia and appears in the Christian Dior Spring 2014 campaign. Forum members applauded the expansion of the model cast and the fresh concept for the Celine campaign.

“I love the change of direction so far. I still think Juergen [Teller] shot it, but it still looks different,” wrote TREVOFASHIONISTO

GERGIN disagreed with this last sentence. “Finally something new…I personally don't think Juergen shot this though, and I will be very surprised if that's the case."

Although we do not know yet who lensed this campaign, it’s safe to say that the change of direction is most welcome. Daria still looks a lot like Celine creative director Phoebe Philo in her solo shot, as members point out every season, but the image with Julia Nobis sure adds the needed oomph to this campaign. 

"Julia is really on a roll, and I love her shot," commented TheoG.

Vandekamp interpreted the theme as “polar opposite energies.” She added, “I like it so far.”

Japanese model Chiharu Okunugi is also rumored to be in the campaign. We are looking forward to seeing more.

Georgia May Jagger for Vogue UK: Haven’t We Seen This Before?

Here's Georgia May Jagger on the cover of Vogue UK's February 2014 Issue, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier and styled in a denim jumpsuit by Balmain. The British model previously fronted the publication in November 2009, when she was first launching her modeling career. Four years later, Jagger returns to Vogue UK as one of the world's top models and the face of both Just Cavalli and cosmetics brand Rimmel (the latter created the makeup look for this cover).

Although this is obviously a beautiful photograph of a stunning woman, some tFS Forum members notice that the publication has essentially duplicated many of its January cover layout choices (background, color scheme and font) for the February issue.

"It looks exactly like the January cover," said Greenway. "Same background, same font colours."

"I mean she looks gorgeous," continued Miss Dalloway, "but yeah, how insipid. It's like UK Vogue can't break out of their own standards to deliver a memorable cover. I am seriously getting over it!"

Catherine88 agreed with many of criticisms, but was still hopeful that Vogue would turn things around next month: "It's time for fresh elements — surprising model, colors, background or fonts. Maybe they're preparing for readers something special for the March issue?"

But not everyone's a critic. "Not bad at all," said TeeVanity. "Simple. I like it."

Cara Delevingne Parties with a Mulberry Menagerie

Proving once again that Cara Delevingne has more hours in a day than you have; the 21-year-old model has been revealed as the face for Mulberry’s SS14 campaign, hosting a very British tea party alongside a host of unexpected animal friends.

A far cry from her Christmas family exploits in Barbados, Cara threw herself wholeheartedly into the shoot that was described by a Mulberry spokesperson as "a charming English tea party, with a Mulberry twist and some unexpected guests including a Parson’s Jack Russell, a Patterdale Terrier and a Great Dane, a pelican, two cockatoos, a tortoise and a little white (and very greedy) pony."

Art director Ronnie Cooke Newhouse said that the campaign, shot on location at 18th century Shotover House in Oxfordshire, was "the perfect Mulberry moment. [The animals] didn’t have the best table manners, but Cara was very forgiving."

The shoot adds further fuel to the fire that the British model is pretty much at ease anywhere, with anyone or anything for that matter, having already lounged around with a bunch of owls in Mulberry’s AW13 campaign. She certainly reprised her affinity of birds with a cheeky chat with a cockatoo, as posted on her Instagram.

With long-standing Mulberry collaborator Tim Walker behind the camera, the eclectic campaign is an expectedly ethereal delight, taking Delevingne out of her onesies and New years antics with Rihanna and into the brand’s ultra feminine floral prints and jacquard fabrics accessorised with the brights and whites of the new handbag designs.

Mulberry has a tendency to name handbags after its muses, so it may not be long until Miss Delevingne is following in the footsteps of Alexa and posing next to the Cara bag next season. Until then, we can simply sit and wait for Spring to blossom as beautifully as this SS14 campaign.

Fashion Blogger Faces Criticism for Dressing Like a Normal Person, Not Street Style Bait

Fashion Blogger Faces Criticism for Dressing Like a Normal Person, Not Street Style Bait

Kyle Anderson, Accessories Director for Marie Claire / Image: IMAXtree

Over on XOJane, a fashion blogger writes about the pressure she encounters to dress like street style bait: "It’s not I’m not that into dressing up, or I don’t know how to put an outfit together. It’s just that most days, I would rather hold on to a few more precious minutes of sleep, than wake up earlier, put together a look, and do my own hair and makeup."

The writer was overwhelmed with negative comments calling out her style when a publication she works for posted a couple candid, full-length photos from an event. Commenters did not think she looked the part of a fashion blogger. 

The criticism came as a surprise: "Normally, I don’t let what other people say about my outfits bother me, but for some reason I was feeling a little hurt. No one ever in my life has told me I’m not fashionable. Like, literally ever. I always wore what I wanted and what I felt comfortable and confident in, and I usually get complimented on what I wear by friends, family, and random people in the New York City streets."

We all realize that the vast majority of street style photography only pretends to document normal, everyday people, but it's easy to forget. In reality, it takes a lot of time, effort and money to achieve that kind of look — and quite frankly, most working people aren't up for that. People employed in the fashion sector do naturally feel greater pressure to conform their appearance to that standard, but it's poppycock. To that end, there's no better role model than critic Cathy Horyn, who simply rolled her eyes into the back of her head when Saint Laurent designer Hedi Slimane derided her sense of style ("seriously challenged") on Twitter.

Above, it's the latest ad to emerge from the YSL Beauty Spring 2014 campaign, a spotlight on the brand's Flower Crush cosmetics range. 

Cara Delevingne and her male model counterpart are pictured sprawling in a bed strewn with flower petals; Delevingne hovers above her suitor, trying to decide whether he's worth ruining her makeup over. He has stellar cheekbones and seems really into her, but it's a tough call.

Delevingne also appeared in recent YSL Beauty ads for Babydoll Mascara and Rebel Nude lipgloss.  [via Forums]
