  • First Look- Spring 2012 Fashion Ad Campaigns

    Givenchy Spring 2012 Ad

    While designer collections make their runway debuts months before they hit sales floors, it’s not usually until we see the ads circulate that we get a clue to the bigger picture behind the season’s story and along with that a dynamic dose of dreamy inspiration. And judging by the Spring 2012 ads that have hit the web so far, it’s clear that many of our favorite designers went in several directions- there’s no clear-cut set of trends, instead it’s a come […]

    Ashley Green Twilight

    Kristen Stewart and Ashley Greene, the starlets of Twilight’s “Breaking Dawn,” are being touted as striking a fierce fashion face-off against each other at the movie’s recent premiere and while we think that’s just a bunch of Hollywood hype for you, we have to admit that in our books, Stewart’s ensemble(and date!) clearly make her the winner.

    Besides the now iconic cone bra’s he outfitted Madonna for in the early 90’s, the highly controversial Hasidic-inspired collection for Fall 1993 and the many in-your-face ethnic influenced collections ripe with rigorous tailoring that have followed, fashion’s original enfant terrible, Jean Paul Gaultier, will forever be a designer who’s done much more than that in our books. Long before today’s mega names associated with showmanship like John Galliano and Alexander McQueen, there was Gaultier.
