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.

The Six New Faces Of Louis Vuitton

Out with the ‘old’ and in with the ‘new’… and in this case, the very new.  Zuzanna Bijoch, Daphne Groeneveld, Gertrud Hegelund, Nyasha Matonhodze, Anaïs Pouliot and Fei Fei Sun, were announced as the new faces of Louis Vuitton. For the past two seasons, Louis Vuitton has championed more ‘experienced’ models… the Spring / Summer campaign featured – Kristen McMenamy, 46, Raquel Zimmermann, 28, and Freja Beha Erichsen, 23. Then Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell took to the catwalk Fall. And if you recall… this was the collection that attracted criticism when Moss smoked a cigarette back in February.

Changing it up, in this campaign the average age of the ladies is 18. The fresh faced models were shot by renowned fashion photographer, Steven Meisel, for the luxury French fashion label’s Autumn/Winter 2011 campaign. Of the campaign, Marc Jacobs said, “Steven Meisel and I met and decided we would do this wonderful story of beautiful vintage cars, little dogs and fresh-faced young women. It’s a very classic scenario, and of course it suggests travel, but I think we gave it a fresh, modern and sometimes a little bit naughty, tongue-in-cheek spin.”
