Hits and Misses: Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Spring 2017

From John Galliano bestowing upon us a true fashion moment with his artisanal face coat for Maison Margiela to Alexandre Vauthier sending an absolute train wreck down the runway, Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Spring 2017 has been a roller coaster ride. Without further ado, here are the highs and (many) lows of the season, according to our opinionated forum members.

Frances Bean Cobain Stars Solo in Marc Jacobs’ New Spring 2017 Campaign

We’ve become accustomed to Marc Jacobs casting a legion of followers, friends and muses for his mainline advertising campaigns, but for Spring 2017, the designer is turning over a new leaf by enlisting only one (yes, ONE) person to appear in his latest campaign. Enter Frances Bean Cobain (no introduction necessary), who goes solo in the minimalist campaign image. Frances took to David Sims’ studio, posing for a stark black and white shot. Katie Grand selected a lace and sequin dress for Frances to model as she follows in her mother’s footsteps as a Marc Jacobs campaign girl.

Unfortunately for MJ, our forums aren’t buying this one. “THIS IS WHAT I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR? Get me outta here,” complained an unforgiving anlabe32.

“Oh hell no! After all the controversy from the collection, THIS is what he did? Just grab another famous spawn. Reductive,” SpeakThatJDunn disapproved. (more…)

Lily Aldridge Stars in Peter Lindbergh’s Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2017 Campaign

With numerous Vogue cover appearances under her belt along with the new Carolina Herrera campaign, Lily Aldridge must be doing something right — though she typically doesn’t get a whole lot of love from our forum members. Lily’s latest campaign is for Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2017, appearing alongside fellow models McKenna Hellam and Andres Velencoso. Photographed by Peter Lindbergh, the trio was transported to the idyllic location of Taormina, Sicily for the campaign images.

Our forums first took a look at Andres’ campaign image and began to deliberate. “Oh this is stunning, exactly what I want from Ferragamo,” approved anlabe32 at once.

“That is a fantastic shot and the colors are so gorgeous,” raved Nomar. (more…)

Isabel Marant Runway Favorite Anna Ewers Scores a Long Overdue Campaign

Every season, our forums root for a model to secure a certain campaign and we couldn’t think of anyone more deserving than Anna Ewers to front Isabel Marant for Spring 2017. After all, she’s walked the show numerous times during Paris Fashion Week and closed the Marant show three times in a row since Spring 2016. Replacing Edie Campbell, Anna was shot by Dutch photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin for the occasion, heating up a New York kitchen before retreating back to the studio for the remaining campaign images.

“Finally! After three seasons closing the show she finally did it!” congratulation artemovartem the second the campaign dropped.

“I like it, Anna is beautiful and this collection was a very good one,” gossiping approved. (more…)

Irina Shayk Gives Good Face on Vogue Japan’s Flawless March Cover

If the latest covers are any indication, 2017 is looking bright for Vogue Japan. January’s cover went to a sultry Anna Ewers, while February’s issue delivered a selection of the industry’s hottest upcoming models. The publication’s March cover (yes, March already) has just dropped and the title has yet another hit to add to its growing collection. Once again photographed by Luigi & Iango, Irina Shayk (who is having a knockout year herself) stuns like never before in the flawless, beauty-focused image while wearing Bottega Veneta.

“Stunning on every level. It’s refreshing to see a woman who looks grown and mature on the cover,” Nepenthes applauded. (more…)

Willy Vanderperre Replaces Steven Meisel for Prada’s Stunning Spring Campaign

Steven Meisel has been Prada’s campaign photographer for decades. Recently, however, it seems the iconic Italian fashion house is headed in a new direction. Willy Vanderperre shot Prada’s Resort 2017 campaign featuring Jessica Chastain, causing forum members to speculate whether Meisel was getting the boot. It seems our suspicions have been confirmed with the unveiling of the Spring 2017 campaign, which was, once again, shot by Vanderperre. Models Saskia de Brauw, Nimue Smit, Jing Wen, Amanda Murphy and a whole host of others were cast for the adverts, set around various locations and split into different themes.

Per usual, the real question remained: were our forum members buying it? “It’s official! Goodbye Meisel hello Willy,” cried out GivenchyHomme.

“This is absolutely stunning. I’m sad Meisel is gone but if this is Willy’s result I won’t miss him for a second. Great colors, angles and perspectives in a minimalist Vanderperre way. Love!” screamed an elated anlabe32. (more…)
