The Miu Miu Fall/Winter 2012/2013 ad campaign stars Chloë Sevigny, who previously featured for Miu Miu in the Spring/Summer 1996 ad campaign. This also marks the third straight ad campaign that Miu Miu has used celebrities instead of models; first with the controversial Hailee Steifeld campaign for Fall/Winter 2011/2012.
Photographed by Mert and Marcus, the ever edgy Chloë Sevigny wears similar eye makeup to the runway show where pantsuits that came in stripes, checks and prints were the main highlights. Styling was done by Katie Grand and featured loud pops of colour that make this a quirky and light-hearted campaign much like their previous one for Spring/Summer 2012.

The Vogue Italia July 2012 Collections main editorial shot by Steven Meisel, featuring the Fall/Winter 2012/2013 collections has got to be one of the best editorials to date this year –if not the whole of this year.
Starring Vanessa Axente, Julia Nobis, Erjona Ala, Mackenzie Drazan, Lida Fox and Elena Bartels on the three-page cover –all wearing Gucci– with Ros Georgiou, Hedvig Palm and Lula Österdahl in the rest of the shoot, the models managed to blend effortless together while pulling off a myriad of acts that you would never have thought would befit the clothes they were wearing. Immaculate styling by Karl Templer and peculiar yet ingenious set designs by Mary Howard complete this winning editorial spread.
Check out the rest of this spectacular editorial featuring Vanessa Axente, Julia Nobis, Erjona Ala, Mackenzie Drazan, Lida Fox, Elena Bartels, Ros Georgiou, Hedvig Palm and Lula Österdahl by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia July 2012, showcasing the Fall/Winter 2012/2013 Collections below.
Rising star Mia Wasikowska stars in the latest Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2012 ad campaign shot by David Sims. Miuccia Prada decided to go with studio photography this season, moving away from last season’s controversial shoot with Hailee Steinfeld but notably still not using a model. Love it or hate it, the over-the-top styling and bold bursts of print and colour make the Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2012 ad campaign a sure standout. I think she’s got it right again; a different statement every season.

Zuzanna Bijoch dazzles for Vogue Paris September 2011. Photographed by Josh Olins and styled by Véronique Didry, up-and-comer Zuzanna Bijoch is immaculately dolled up in expensive jewels from the likes of David Yurman, De Beers, Van Cleef and Arpels, Harry Winston and Boucheron among others with clothes from Gucci, Jil Sander, Oscar de la Renta, Miu Miu and Manish Arora. Precious metals and gems juxtaposed with prints never looked so good plus Zuzanna Bijoch is one of my favourite models at the moment. Check out the rest of the Zuzanna Bijochfor Vogue Paris September 2011 editorial below.
Elle Fanning stars in the latest Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 ad campaign shot by Juergen Teller. The ads feature Elle Fanning donning heavy outerwear and dresses that seem too big on her but she pulls it off with ease by staring rather blankly into the camera looking like she owns it; albeit a little nonchalantly. The photos are dreamy with a slightly surreal atmosphere but I’m unsure of the outfits selected here. I wish the stylist had chosen more outfits with those eclectic prints and that striped colour-block coat plus a metallic piece. But that’s just me. Otherwise, selecting Elle Fanning for the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 ad campaign would have proved to be a winner.
Looking back at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 ad campaign again and you realise that Elle Fanning is only 13 but she has over a dozen editorial spreads to her name including this one. With the age factor in mind, the Miu Miu Fall/Winter 2011/2012 ad campaign starring Hailee Steinfeld instantly comes to attention. I had written in an earlier post about the ad campaign that the Miu Miu Fall/Winter 2011/2012 collection needed someone more appropriate to model as Hailee Steinfeld looked somewhat young. But I have recently gained enlightenment.
Ad campaigns have always been about the collections, the clothes, the bags, the shoes and the accessories. The model is merely that, a model to show the collection off. It is about selling dreams and fantasies, breaking away from the norm to grab consumers’ attention. You don’t relate to the model or celebrity wearing the collection; you see the collection for what it is no matter who is modeling it. Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld are just two young starlets modeling designer clothes, heck, they even wear designer clothes (yes young girls be jealous). Let’s just look at the ad campaigns as such, you don’t have to read too much into it. It’s just simply beautiful clothes on pretty young things.
