Things are pretty good for Georgia May Jagger right now. Recently the British model was confirmed as the new face of Madonna's Material Girl world and of course, she was amongst the line-up of models that appeared in the Olympics closing ceremony, and it doesn't end there. This week she was confirmed as the face of the new Just Cavalli fragrance.
'Roberto Cavalli is a great designer. The Just Cavalli brand is very sexy, young and cool,' she said in a statement. 'Each collection is very contemporary and colourful; it is clearly for the younger girl who wants to have a trendy look. It is the first fragrance that I have ever done so it is a huge honour.' While it may be her first fragrance campaign, Jagger isn't new to beauty campaigns after serving as the face of Rimmel London for the past few years after replacing Kate Moss.
The Just Cavalli collection started off on the conservative side compared to the designer's usual more-is-more aesthetic but that wasn't a bad thing. The colour palette was monochromatic and came on striped floaty dresses, spray on houndstooth leggings, feminine blouses and a great checked coat with sheer sleeves.
As the collection progressed, though, the Cavalli signatures began to emerge. Leopard print was everywhere and came in various shapes and colours on blouses and skinny trousers teamed with gold lurex blazers with black satin lapels. While the statement pieces will no doubt go down well with his young party loving customer, I was disappointed that he didn't push the signatures forward. The brand's fall 2011 collection proved what could happen when he does just that, so it was a shame to see him slip back into the brand's comfort zone this season.
Or so said a dress at the Spring '10 Just Cavalli fashion show today in Milan. Roberto Cavalli hasn't helped to give Milan Fashion Week a subtle start. With a rebellious rock-chick collection complete with slashed jeans, hula-fringed shoes and more than a few visible bras, it seems the designer doesn't seem to care that just a season ago, he was worried about keeping the line afloat.
Balmain's skinny-skinny aesthetic was plenty visible on the runway, with dresses tiny enough to make even Victoria Beckham (maybe?) have to squeeze in. OK, who are we kidding? But also of note were tiered pink dresses, with mesh revealing the knickers underneath, and roomy, fringed tank dresses layered over bright tees.
Some of our favourite looks had to be a dissheveled black spaghetti-strap dress over a black bra and pants, or the mesh tank above with badass jeans. Does it resonate with you? We're not saying some of it hasn't been done before, but hey...maybe it touched us.
