Emma Watson’s First US Vogue Cover

Emma Watson has landed her first US Vogue cover at just 21 years of age!

The glamorous beauty covers the July 2011 issue of American Vogue, ahead of the release of the final Harry Potter film. Looking immaculately polished with her flawless skin and striking, delicate features; Watson wears a divine gown from the Prada Fall 2011/12 collection. Photographed by Mario Testino, within this issue Watson also wears looks by Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Prada, Calvin Klein and Dolce & Gabbana.

Watson is a fan of young British Designers – often choosing to wear labels such as Erdem and Hakaan, among others – and said in her interview with Vogue US: “I thought: “If people are going to write about what I’m wearing, then I would wear young British designers who need the publicity.”

Angelina Jolie By Annie Leibovitz for Louis Vuitton

Renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz has photographed Angelina Jolie for the Louis Vuitton Core Values campaign.

The Louis Vuitton Core Values campaigns celebrate Vuitton’s timeless classics pieces, in real situations on real people. Reclining on a wooden boat in Cambodia, Angelina Jolie looks serenely beautiful with her own six-year-old monogrammed ‘Alto’ carryall bag.

Of the campaign, Louis Vuitton’s executive vice president, Pietro Beccari, has said: “People are not used to seeing Angelina in this situation. I like the fact that it’s a real moment. This travel message we give through personal journeys is a fundamental one for the brand.”

Previous people to feature in this campaign, include; Bono and his wife Ali Hewson in Africa; Sofia Coppola and her father Francis Ford Coppola in the Buenos Aires countryside; Keith Richards in a hotel suite; and Mikhail Gorbachev, former President of the Soviet Union and Nobel Peace Prize winner in the back of a limo passing remains of the Berlin Wall.

Jolie will donate a significant portion of her fee to a charity, which will most likely be the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation in aid of community development and conservation in Cambodia.

A Breath Of Fresh Fashion Air… Crisp White

Nothing looks as sophisticatedly chic as an all white look

This coming season, many Designers chose to embrace a clean palette of creamy white hues for a fresh fashion start.

Fashion should be fun, positive and inspiring. And with the new air of optimism that swept through the Spring / Summer collections, it is set to enliven every wardrobe.

Yves Saint Laurent once said: “What I love about Manet is the sumptuous, nuanced white.” Elegant, sharp and tailored – white appeared across the catwalks like a breath of fresh fashion air. From Dolce and Gabbana to Calvin Klein Collection, Derek Lam and Alexander Wang – the seductive, sweetness of white evokes innocent beauty while being sophisticatedly sensual.

White cleanses the palette. From delicate white lace and sweet broderie anglaises – nothing says Summer dressing quite like it…

Dolce and Gabbana

Taking inspiration from a ‘hope chest’, Dolce and Gabbana’s white lingerie-inspired dresses, sexy skirt-suits and innocent baby doll dresses – all lent themselves perfectly to pure white. The show stopping finale – all models appeared wearing the signature Dolce and Gabbana hourglass corset all in white (pictured above). Simply breathtaking…

Calvin Klein

At Calvin Klein simple cuts, luxe minimalism and architectural lines all in white creamy hues looked classically chic…

Alexander Wang

“Did you notice anything? There’s no black! I was looking for something optimistic, something pure.” said Alexander Wang of his Spring / Summer collection. Beginning the collection with a series of all white looks, Wang’s optimism shone through in his own way. The looks were deconstructed and strong, with model’s also wearing white paint in their hair. Alexander Wang gave white its own street-style cred…

Will you embrace white summer dressing? xx
