Kate Moss Debuts As The Face Of Saint Laurent

Saint Laurent Spring 2018 campaignPhotography David Sims

Spoiler alert: she looks amazing

When it comes to models, you’d probably feel pretty confident saying that Kate Moss has done it all. While she has been a fan of Saint Laurent – since it was first rebranded by Hedi Slimane – she has not made an appearance on the runway or in a campaign since the Tom Ford-era. Until now. Following a teaser posted on Instagram, the Parisian house has now released the Spring 2018 campaign featuring the iconic model. Photographed by David Sims, the British icon appears in one image dressed in a feathery dress from the SS18 show that paid homage to Yves Saint Laurent’s archive. In the accompanying campaign video, directed by Nathalie Canguilhem, we see Moss on her journey to the top of some steps that look as though they...

gettyimages-691090322-1508783297

Starring in Calvin Klein’s Eternity commercial with Jake Gyllenhaal would make anyone seem cool. But Liya Kebede’s had major fashion cred since before Donnie Darko hit cinemas. The African supermodel made her Gucci debut in 2000; 17 years later, she’s still a catwalk star for Louis Vuitton, Céline, and Dries Van Noten. She’s also an ambassador for the World Health Organization and the founder of Lemlem, a clothing line with flowy fabrics and a sustainable, female-focused work ethic.
We got some life advice—and Gyllenhaal scoop—with the Ethiopian native in New York City.

Growing up, was Calvin Klein a big deal in Ethiopia? Oh, the CK One ad [with Kate Moss] was monumental for us. The jeans and the tank top—what a cool girl looked like changed so much for...

Back in the '90s, Naomi Campbell worked with H&M on a series of commercials and campaigns. Now, over 20 years later, the supermodel is joining forces with the Swedish retailer once again for its Fall 2017 campaign video.

As for Campbell, she was excited to be working with H&M again. "It’s always an honor when a brand comes back to you 20 years later," she told BAZAAR.com."I love Tokyo, so any excuse to be there, I’m happy."

Lieberman has styled her ready-to-wear collections with the Nike Cortez for six seasons, so it's no surprise the brand looked to the designer for a reimagining. "I'm a '70s kid, so I grew up with the famous Farrah Fawcett Cortez poster on my wall and the iconic shoes on my feet," she says. "The Cortez have always slid right into my wardrobe. Through the '70s, '80s, and '90s, I wore them very casually, pairing them with jeans and a tee...

See Pharrell’s New Chanel Gabrielle Bag Campaign

Pharrell made big news in March when he was announced as the first man to model a Chanel bag in a campaign. Back in December, he walked the runway for the brand's Métiers d'Art show in Paris. Now, he's the star of a campaign film featuring the new Chanel Gabrielle bag.
In a short film released today, the musician approaches an empty concert hall and turns it into his playground. During one especially tense moment, he walks a very unsafe-looking beam hanging in mid-air and almost–ALMOST–drops his Chanel bag.

Terrifying.
