In the immortal words of Liz Lemon, WHAT THE WHAT?!
This is what happens when you leave a model to her own devices. For its autumn/winter 2012 ad campaign, Rag & Bone sent Jourdan Dunn a bunch of their clothes and told her to photograph herself wearing them, and the results are refreshing.
The U.K.’s Advertising Standards Authority has banned Christian Dior‘s Diorshow New Look Mascara ad featuring Natalie Portman for overzealous airbrushing and exaggerating the product’s results.
Vogue Japan editor and street style icon Anna Dello Russo is collaborating on an accessories line with H&M, and its release date fast approaches. You’ve already seen the campaign video, but now the look book is here, and we have lots of details.
But that’s not all. The brand Bey loves to name-drop is going to be shaking things up!
So…buy their clothes, maybe? (Sorry, had to.)
Sadly, it’s not all that rare for advertising to cross the line and present messages, intended or otherwise, that are seriously not okay. This ad for an iPhone app, starring model Bar Refaeli, is probably one of the worst we’ve seen in recent memory, and the totally effed-up nature of it was anything but a mistake.
Well, not literally, but that thing is heavy.
Remember Rihanna‘s ads for Nivea? No? Well, we didn’t either, until we heard that the beauty brand’s spokesperson received harsh criticism from Nivea’s new CEO Stefan Heidenreich.
She’s still got it, y’all!
We have long been admirers of Queen B‘s less-known but no-less-awesome little sister, Solange Knowles. The girl has incredible style, really cool hair, and seems super down-to-earth (and she has an awesome Tumblr). As if we needed any more reasons to love her/be way jealous of her life, she is now the face of Madewell!
The ad for America’s Next Top Model: College Edition is out, and it’s pretty bad. In fact, it features three major FAILS.
You might remember Aussie plus-size model Robyn Lawley from that captivating cover of Vogue Italia and from Vogue Australia’s first-ever plus-size spread. Now, her out-of-this world curves have landed her in a campaign for British lingerie brand Boux Avenue.
Other than saying “You’re welcome for providing your daily LOLZ”, we will present this to you without comment. Because there really are no words to adequately describe this. Happy Saturday!
And the Fifty Shades Of Grey frenzy continues.
Jessica Chastain‘s campaign for Yves Saint Laurent‘s newest fragrance, Manifesto, just hit the interwebs!
