Ebony & Ivory? Chanel Spring 2012 Ad Campaign

Photographed by Karl Lagerfeld

Joan Smalls and Saskia De Brauw star in Chanel’s Spring 2012 Ad Campaign. I’m really loving the contrast with the garments, and the contrast of the models. I wonder if it was done deliberately. Either way, the images are beautiful and quiet. That’s one thing Chanel has over a lot of labels, is the fact that when you’re wearing Chanel, you stand completely out in the crowd without having to be so loud. Charming as ever.

24 Hour Couture

This is a really old Editorial that I originally saw in American Harper’s Bazaar June 2007. I was never a huge fan of Gisele Bundchen whatsoever, until I saw this editorial. She wasn’t as angular as usual. There was a softness about her, and it was nice seeing her hair straight instead of the usual aqua-netted waves or curls. Either way, enjoy the beauty of Gisele in ’24 Hour Couture’ photographed by Karl Lagerfeld for Bazaar.

Louis Vuitton meets Da Vinci Code

L’Invitation Au Voyage

To me the video reminds me a lot of the ‘Da Vinci Code’ by Dan Brown. What with the Louvre and the Mona Lisa and all the secrets of Paris. Enjoy!

Arizona Muse and Shaun DeWet star in Louis Vuitton’s newest campaign video directed by Inez and Vinoodh.

Here’s the description on Louis Vuitton’s official YouTube page.

Paris and its mysteries… For centuries, the most wonderful intrigues have been woven in the Louvre, a haven of culture and history.
An intrepid young woman enters this universal temple and unwinds the skein of time. After an encounter with the Mona Lisa and the Italian masters, armed with a key, she releases the secrets — also desired by a man hot on her heels — enclosed for more than 150 years in a legendary trunk created by Louis Vuitton.
Like a thread stretching across time and space, a hot-air balloon rises above the Cour Carrée. The beautiful unknown woman leaves the Louvre for a far-off destination in pursuit of her destiny.
