BURBERRY FESTIVE CAMPAIGN

Burberry launches its 2015 festive film and campaign with an all-star British cast of supermodels, musicians, and actors!

The film pays homage to the much-loved opening sequence of the movie Billy Elliot, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year.

The festive film directed by Christopher Bailey stars Sir Elton John, James Corden, Julie Walters, Romeo Beckham, Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Michelle Dockery, James Bay, George Ezra and Toby Huntington-Whiteley.

“Billy Elliot is an incredible film full of so much joy and energy, so it was a real thrill and a great honour to be able to celebrate its 15 year anniversary through our Festive campaign. It was also a huge privilege to work with such amazing and iconic British talent – the cast are quite simply some of the biggest names in film, music and fashion and it was so much fun working with them all to make this special film.” Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer

The festive campaign is shot by Mario Testino.

ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY

ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY FOR VOGUE KOREA

East meets West in Vogue Korea‘s November issue as British beauty Rosie Huntington-Whiteley models exquisite floral dresses and opulent jewels for the cover story captured by Sebastian Kim, styled by Ye Young Kim.

We’re pretty used to seeing Rosie Huntington-Whiteley styled the exact same way, shoot after shoot. She vamped it up on the cover of Lui magazine and even the British version of Harper’s Bazaar kept Rosie right inside her comfort zone. But Vogue Korea just served up the Brit beauty looking demure and straight-faced for its November 2015 issue. Photographed by Sebastian Kim and styled by Ye Young Kim, the model-turned-actress looks terrific wearing Burberry Prorsum while posing among decadent surroundings.

PRADA RESORT 2016 AD’ CAMPAIGN

Good girls go bad for the  Resort 2016 ad campaign.

Lexi Boling, Meghan Collison, Ina Jensen, Lineisy Montero, Julia Nobis and Greta Varlese are transformed into glam rock muses for the campaign shot by Steven Meisel.

For Montero, who walked 68 shows this season, it’s her second Prada campaign – the Dominican starred in the house’s AW15 visuals, also photographed by Meisel.

In these images the models are shot against a roller shutter, as if they are queuing outside a nightclub, so they resemble something akin to 80s club girls. In fact, they wouldn’t look out of place in a book by Derek Ridgers, who photographed London youth in the late 70s and 80s.

“Pop decorativism is subverted by industrial minimalism,” reads the press release, which also pays “post-modesty” a mention. Described as the “new normcore”, this term was coined by Miuccia Prada at Prada’s SS16 men’s show, where this collection was first unveiled.

The clothes themselves bear including rabbits, race cars, spaceships, arrows and eyes. “They represent any kind of symbolism,” she said backstage at the show. “Advertising, logos  – although I don’t like to simplify thoughts, so we chose stupid symbols, the most infantile, that worked graphically.”
