Roberto Cavalli Spring 2012 Ad Campaign features four iconic models – Naomi Campbell, Karen Elson, Kristen McMenamy and Daphne Groeneveld.

Steven Meisel shot the campaign at Pier 59 studios in New York, in a simple backdrop that kept the focus on the printed silk dresses and the hand embroidered glittering pieces that look more like couture than ready to wear.

The inspiration behind all that decadent gold?  As Creative Director Eva Cavalli explained to us backstage at the Roberto Cavalli Spring 2012 Fashion Show in Milan, the collection is about optimism –  “we wanted to make shine this world that sometimes very dark“.

Watch the ‘Making of’ Roberto Cavalli Fall/Winter 2011 advertising campaign starring top models Natasha Poly, Mariacarla Boscono and Karen Elson. Each of these three women embodies a characteristic of the Cavalli women: sensuality, sweetness and determination.

The campaign was photographed by Mert and Marcus in London and the inspiration was nature. As top model Karen Elson explains in the behind the scenes video – “there’s a definite mystery about the campaign, it’s poetic.”

Supermodel Natalia Vodianova presented her Spring 2011 collection for Etam with a star studded front row that included Kate Moss and Alexa Chung. Some of the world’s hottest top models walked the show including Karolina Kurkova, Angela Lindvall and Barbara Palvin. Beth Ditto, Karen Elson and Boy George performed. Watch the full length video from last night’s fashion show.

The king is back! Tom Ford debut of his Women’s Ready to Wear collection for Spring 2011 featuring Beyoncé, Rita Wilson, Lauren Hutton and some of the world’s hottest supermodels including Natalia Vodianova and Daria Werbowy.

Tom Ford’s ultra-private, invitation-only debut show was the talk of New York Fashion Week and was strictly off-limits to the press, no photographers or video cameras were allowed to document the event. The reason for all the secrecy? Ford told Harper’s Bazaar that the immediacy of the web dulls the consumer’s interest in the clothes, “by the time they get to the store they’re overexposed, they’ve lost their freshness“.  As you will see this is definitely one collection worth waiting for.

The Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 Campaign features supermodels Christy Turlington, Natalia Vodianova and Karen Elson. Photographer Steven Meisel captures the models backstage preening in front of a mirror, as if they are getting ready for a fashion show. It has a classic, 50’s look about it and it’s cool because of the multi-generational casting. Each model represents a different age, one in her 20’s, one in her 30’s and one in her 40’s. Designer Marc Jacobs Fall 2010 collection for Louis Vuitton was one of the most talked shows of the fall season. It showcased models with more size, more shape and age diversity than we usually see at fashion week. Jacobs celebrated the return of ‘real’ women, and featured many of the world’s hottest top supermodels including Elle McPherson, Karolina Kurkova, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima. The Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 campaign comes out in magazines in August. Source: WWD
