Balenciaga fall/winter 2009 Ad Campaign

The first preview shot of Balenciaga 's ad campaign for the fall 2009 collection has been released. Featuring Nicolas Ghesquière's muse , actress Jennifer Connelly, which happens to be the house's campaign model for the second time. Previously it was the ad campaign for the Summer 2008 collection. Shot by Steven Meisel, Connelly is seen on a couch, over a deep forest green fabric. This campaign is a bit more lively as any of the recent Balenciaga print campaigns. They tend to have a much more colder perspective. This one is full of warmness, shadows, and movement. Can't wait to see the rest of the campaign!

Fendi fall/winter 2009 Ad Campaign

Canadian supermodel, Jessica Stam surprisingly is the new face of Fendi, being featured in the new fall/winter 2009 ad campaign for the collection, photographed by Karl Lagerfeld. I'm liking this campaign over the last Fendi ads, it's way more attractive, not necessarily super interesting, BUT quite pretty - the model helps as well. The foggy overcast scenery is lovely, and the make-up looks to die for!

Stella McCartney fall/winter 2009 Ad Campaign

Animal loving Stella McCartney's Bambi inspired campaign for the fall '09 collection is soooooooo adorable!
Quite innovative as well! I love love love it! Featuring model Sigrid Agren, the ad is shot by Ryan McGinley.
What's interesting as well is the contrast, the clothing with the innocence of the Disney
character and his forest friends.
The collection wasn't your most fluffiest, it was quite tough, not particularly aggressive, but definitely tough.
This is what Stella had to say about her the campaign for her fresh fall collection:

I’m a huge Bambi fan, and the film reminds me of my mum, And we wanted to have some fun. The clothes in the campaign are looking quite fierce, and we wanted to contrast them with the innocence of Bambi,”

Anna Selezneva for Vogue China July 2009

Russian supermodel Anna Selezneva graces the cover of this month's issue of Vogue China, the usually quite edgy model is looking quite softer and vulnerable then what we're used to seeing. Anna compared to some of her modeling peers hasn't been modeling for a long period of time. But has already in this short period accomplished a lot of what many models don't during their whole career. She's has an impressive history of runway bookings, expensive campaigns and has been on nearly every major Vogue there is. She at #11 on's top 50 model ranking.

Phi fall/winter 2009 Ad Campaign

The campaign for the Phi fall 2009 collection features three brilliant Russian supermodels, the expensive cast includes; the magnificent Natasha Poly, the intriguing Sasha Pivovarova, and the delightful Anna Selezneva. Photographed by Steven Meisel and styled by Marie Amelie Sauve, the campaign could have been better. The hair if it were in a sleeker and more collection fashion, I think the results would of been better. But it is not that bad. The collection was spectacular, you can tell just be looking at the campaign. The blacks, the furs, the leathers - all to die for!

Valentino Haute Couture fall/winter 2009

So happy with this Valetino collection, designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli , which happen to be the house's former accessories designers are definitely taking Valentino in a totally new direction. Their past Haute Couture collection debut was quite stiff, and seemed to be just another renaissance of the house's past, nothing very innovative about it.
But for this collection of fall Couture, we saw a much bolder youthfulness, which really was part of what the founder wanted to get into with Valentino .
With what Piccoli called, A story of shadows, the collection featured leggy dresses and miniskirts
which came with ruffles, lace, in shades of blacks. Nude was also heavily seen, and looked amazing when paired with a few black numbers.
The headpieces with extravagant organza e volume some models wore were amazing.
I really love the new grounds Valentino is headed towards.
Although I must admit, it is quite awkward seeing a Valentino collection without a single hint of red.

Giorgio Armani Privé Haute Couture fall/winter 2009

The black-and-white movie heroines inspired Giorgio Armani Privé collection this Haute Couture season was one of Armani's best collections for couture yet, it not the best.
The collection was the epitome of high class and sophistication. The show started with pantsuits, large buttons and decorated utility zippers were seen on the waist of jackets, cuffs, collars, and the middle of a skirt. Intricate detailing was proved with a vast number of beads, crystals, sequins, paillettes. The nude crystal-encrusted jumpsuits towards the finale were definitely breath-taking.
Models wore a black pob wig, which definitely looked spectacular on a lot of them, ahaha some should really consider the hairstyle.

Elie Saab Haute Couture fall/winter 2009

The Elie Saab show in Paris consisted of 46 ethereal white looks, with gathering and appliqués that made models look as if they were floating in a cumulus cloud. The different hues of white included ivory, seashell, cream, and magnolia.
The collection was exquisite, romantic, fresh and perfectly executed.
Jumpsuits, 2 piece suits, feathered jackets were all seen parading down the runway.
Mini-skirts were worn bare or with white leggings, gowns were seen in a huge variety, such as strapless, asymmetrical, sleeved, one-sleeved, cut-out at the back, bejeweled, feathered, beaded, paillettes, embellished with rosettes, and tulle.
The bold shoulder trend that was very much present in the fall/winter 2009 collections is definitely still in play during this Couture season, Saab showed us padded, feathered, embellished and large shoulders on vast pieces.
The models looked very fresh faced, with clean make-up and a strip of pale blue in the middle of their faces.
