The Fall Campaigns So Far

The Autumn / Winter 2011 Campaigns are beginning to be released and I have featured some of my favourites so far below. From Freja Beha dressed as a cat for Chanel; to the fresh faced Elle Fanning for Marc Jacobs and Hailee Steinfeld for Miu Miu – it looks set to be a memorable season.

For Chanel, Freja Beha is once again used; however, with completely different results. Beha is firstly pictured as a cat perched in a slightly scruffy photo booth; followed by another shot in the same location, but this time with French written across her forehead. The rough translation is Coco Chanel’s iconic quote “A fashion that does not reach the streets is not a fashion.”  Little has been revealed about the campaign so far, yet rumours are suggesting it was styled by Carine Roitfeld (previously the Editor of French Vogue) and of course shot by Karl Lagerfeld.

Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld both look seriously chic for Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu respectively.

Bottega Veneta’s Fragrance For Women

The Italian luxury fashion House, Bottega Veneta, best known for its signature leather goods, is launching its first fragrance for women.

Described as a “leather, floral chypre” scent; the fragrance consists of: oak moss, Italian bergamot, Indian jasmine sambac, Brazilian pink peppercorns and Indian patchouli. The scent represents the “invisible, private luxury” associated with the House. The elegantly simple bottle is made of Murano glass, (for limited edition) and is decorated with a sweet leather bow. Nine d’Urso, the daughter of French fashion icon Inès de la Fressange, is the face of the campaign.

New ‘IT’ Bag Alert

Mulberry is already home to IT bags the ‘Alexa’ and ‘Bayswater’ and it now looks set for the ‘Polly Push Lock’ to join this beautiful group. Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge was pictured carrying a Mulberry Polly Push Lock handbag while departing for America.

The compact carryall shoulder bag, in textured leather, exudes a luxe vintage aesthetic. Available to purchase through Net-A-Porter for £616.67, I predict this bag is going to be huge (especially now it has a Princess’ seal of approval)!

Beauty Editorial Inspiration

Entitled ‘Forbidden Kisses’, Lily Donaldson features in a gorgeous beauty editorial for Vogue Japan’s August 2011 edition.

The prettiest tones of pink (used from the eyes to the lips and cheeks) create an ultra feminine, playfulness. The softness of the looks play upon Donaldson’s delicate beauty for innocently, seductive results… LOVE THESE LOOKS!

 Have a fabulously fashionable weekend! xx

Young, Beautiful & With Impeccable Style…

Choosing from luxury labels such as Valentino, Prada and Marchesa, to name but a few; Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld have already graced numerous best dressed lists for their impeccable red carpet style.

Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld must be two of the most ‘in style’ teenagers in the world. Age appropriate and also perfectly pretty – their choices have the right amount of edge yet are always classically chic.

Hailee Steinfeld…

At just 14 years of age, Hailee Steinfeld’s red carpet style is exquisite. To the 2011 Oscars, Steinfeld wore a divine pale pink crystal embroidered tulle, tea length dress by Marchesa (pictured above).

Accessorised with Ferragamo peep-toe shoes, a silver Ferragamo clutch and a sweet pink headband; Steinfeld looked absolutely perfect. And when I discovered that she assisted in the dress design, I loved it even more! Steinfeld sketched the basis of this dress before taking it to Marchesa to create!

After the event, Steinfeld ditched her ladylike heels for a pair of Converse hi-tops. Aw, how adorable!

Elle Fanning…

Elle Fanning at 13years of age has style and elegance beyond her young years. Her beauty and innocence translates perfectly to the red carpet where she favours floaty, feminine gowns by labels such as Valentino, Rodarte and Marchesa.

Of her passion for sophisticated dressing she says, “I love fashion! I love clothes! I really like vintage clothes, so in my closet there’s a lot of ’50s stuff. I go to the stores and shop around.”
