Forum Buzz: Proenza Schouler’s Ad Campaign, Lauren Santo Domingo’s Apartment, and More

Though The Fashion Spot Forums can’t agree about the appeal of Proenza Schouler‘s Spring 2011 ad campaign or Lauren Santo Domingo‘s apartment, members are thrilled to hear news of Miranda Kerr‘s newborn baby boy.

  • Proenza Schouler Spring 2011 Ad Campaign Looks like there’s no consensus about the just-released images from Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2011 ad campaign, which features models Melissa Tammerijn and Julia Nobis shot by Willy Vanderperre.

    TFS forum member dodencebt was surprised to see "a beautiful campaign from such a boring show." Piece Of Me was pleased by the "stunning campaign," and noted that she "loved the collection and this campaign was perfect for it." john2elmejor was "very disappointed," because he thought that Proenza Schouler Spring ’11 was "an amazing collection, but this campaign is so boring!"

    Whatever your take on the ads, kudos to thunderstorm for noticing that the models alternate between bright & nude beauty palettes from pic to pic.  


  • The Fashion Spot congratulates model Miranda Kerr, who gave birth to a baby boy this weekend. The baby weighed 10 lbs and Kerr chose to deliver with epidural anesthesia. "Miranda is my new hero," says MissLimaVzla, "10 lbs & she went natural?! This woman deserves a standing ovation."


  • Photographs of Lauren Santo Domingo’s apartment have TFS members talking. LUXX likes some of the Vogue editor’s possessions but is surprised to see "how junky her home looks…there’s a lot going on." Meg thinks Domingo’s home is "quite stylized but actually devoid of personal style. It feels like someone came in and designed something to look personal and eccentric and cultured and modern, but it lacks overall cohesion, in my view."

    Users Squizree and Worfolk take on the naysayers. Squirzee notes that Domingo "collects anime dolls!…[and Squirzee loves] her colour scheme. Brown and coffee colours are so beautiful and actually help you concentrate better."  Worfolk thinks that "[Domingo’s] apartment is just like her. A brilliant mix of luxury, modernity, elegance and edge (the collection of doll, the daring prints, or how everything seems a bit messy.)"


  • Rachel Zoe tried Tom Ford’s game of holding a secret show for her line with Li & Fung, but Harper’s Bazaar snuck in a camera phone. Checking out the pictures, BetteT spots Zoe in the front row: "Gotta give the girl credit…she’s building a brand!" isa.b.elle is happy for the stylist "to expand her business," but says, "personally I find the whole ‘Rachel Zoe collection’ very unnecessary. The black and white dress on the left looks like a rip-off from one of her own sequined dresses…I mean, it was obvious that, given the fact that she has no designing skills, she would have to take ‘inspiration’ from her own clothes…but…I don’t really see the point in this whole over-exposition." Countering isa.b.elle, chanelslungbags points out that the collection isn’t "very 70s boho…and isn’t that [what makes up most of Zoe’s] wardrobe?"


  • After reading that Terry Richardson shot Paris Hilton for the cover of Vogue Turkey, vogue28 wrote that it was "possibly the best news in this thread, for sometime. Terry’s aesthetic and Paris’ style certainly complement each other, and I look forward to seeing the results." Psylocke agrees: "Paris by Terry Richardson sounds like a lot of fun. And since Vogue Turkey rarely disappoints with their covers, I think this could turn out awesome."
