If you thought that the big money real estate on Boardwalk and Park Place was as sophisticated as board games could get, think again. Louis Vuitton pays homage to the low-tech pastimes of billiards, chess, cards, dominos, and more in their latest animated film. Why, you ask? Well, that’s exactly what we’re wondering.
Okay, maybe we’re francophiles. We were trying to roll our eyes at this Prada Candy L’Eau fragrance video but, ugh, the Frenchies just stole our hearts.
We’ve watched our share of 90s horror movies in our day, but none quite like this. DSquared2 enlisted model-of-the-moment (and master of the silly face) Cara Delevingne for their Scream-inspired Resort 2013 video. But rather than garbing her in Drew Barrymore‘s token cream cableknit, they gussied the 20-year-old up in neon, leather, and piles of gaudy bling.
Now THIS is our type of documentary!
Top model Chanel Iman certainly isn’t a one trick pony. She recently starred in a short film, shot by Norwegian husband-and-wife photographer duo Dusan Reljin and Hilde Pettersen Reljin, called “Chanel Rising”, in which she shows off not onyl her enviable body, but her awesome pole dancing abilities.
If this trailer is any indication, that is.
Philipp Plein (who you may remember as the guy who tried to help Lindsay Lohan make a comeback) just released a behind-the-scenes video of his fall 2012 campaign, in which Terry Richardson photographs a really hot model grinding on the even hotter Ed Westwick.
Prada pulled a fast one on the fabulous people at Cannes by surprising them with a short (and charming) fashion film.
Branding videos are nothing new, but what are you supposed to do when they don’t gel up with the brand they’re supposed to be advertising? Call us crazy, but that’s sort of what’s going on in the short film for Victoria by Victoria Beckham, the British designers hotly anticipated diffusion collection.
You know a singer is serious when they treat the short trip from their trailer to the set of their new music video as an opportunity to do a bit of performance art, and that’s exactly what seems to have happened when Lady Gaga was filming the music video for You and I.
We love Fashion Week as much as any other self-respecting fashion blog does (and the same goes for fashion documentaries), but the latest industry film to hit the big screen is just a touch dramatic for our taste. Or, at least the trailer has us feeling a bit skeptical.
A really good documentary offers an unflinching and engrossing look at its subject. The fashion industry may be infamously impenetrable, but a few enterprising filmmakers have caught some amazing stories on film. As such, we’ve put together a list of the six most essential fashion documentaries.
The fashion industry makes for great cinema — glamour, sex, drugs, scandal, intrigue, clothes! Surprisingly, very few films have taken advantage of the inherent theatrics of fashion, which means you have no excuse for not watching the six movies we have dubbed fashion’s most essential.
It seems as though W Magazine‘s editor in chief Stefano Tonchi might be having a little Vogue envy. When last year’s The September Issue hit theaters, audiences got an inside look at the making of the fashion bible that is Vogue’s biggest, and most important issue of the year. And according to The Cut, Stefano wants to share W‘s story as well.
