Today, it's hard to think of Calvin Klein without picturing Lara Stone and this morning the brand revealed yet another campaign starring the Dutch model but this time for their 'Push Positive' underwar range. As the name suggests, the campaign is all about the push-up bra so naturally, the Steven Klein-shot images showcase Stone's ample bussom in all of their glory.
The bras, which the brand are already declaring as 'today's ultimate wardobe solution', come with a butterfly shape crafted from innovative soft-wire technology that allows them to move naturally with the shape of the body.
According to the press release, the campaign is focused mainly on digtal media, which reportedy 'represents approximately 70% of the global media mix' that they're targetting and is 'expected to garner over 575 million impressions'. To accompany the images, the first week of September will see the launch of a special Cavin Klein Push Positive campaign on YouTube.
By last week we'd all seen just about all of the major September issue covers but Vogue Paris was notably missing. That all changed today, though, as the glossy finally revealed their all-important issue and it's an interesting one.
As always, the cover was all about models with Vogue Paris favourites Kate Moss, Lara Stone and Daria Werbowy bagging their own separate covers. All three models appear sporting the same hair and make-up and black Dolce & Gabbana dress in line with the issue's black theme and that's where the similarities end. The issue also sees the magazine undergo a major revamp. 'The magazine features a calendar, airier design, with remodeled typography and the use of a craft-paper-like brown background - both of which hark back to its look in the Sixties and Seventies,' WWD reports.
Emmanuelle Alt has been under a lot of criticism since taking the reigns at the magazine and the September issue seems like a conscious step on her part to finalise the changes she's been making to put her stamp on things.
Yesterday Calvin Klein Collection took over Cannes yesterday to celebrate women in film with the Independent Filmmaker Project. The event, which took place in a private villa in Cannes, celebrated actresses ranging from Shailene Woodley to Jessica Chastain and guests included loyal fans of the brand like Diane Kruger and Naomi Watts.
The event was also special because came alongside the announcement that Lara Stone will continue to serve as the face of all their global advertising campaigns including their Euphoria ad, which is set to drop worldwide in October.
After much anticipation, last month Condé Nast finally dropped the debut issue of Vogue Netherlands. Overall the cover wasn't too bad. All of the pretty pastels that we've been seeing everywhere appeared on the backs of Romee Strijid, Ymre Stiekema and Josefien Roderman and the cover story inside was pretty strong too.
Where many felt disappointed though was with their choice of models for the big cover. As top Danish models go, they had quite a few to choose from so many were expecting either Saskia de Brauw or Lara Stone to make an appearance to mark the big debut. All is forgiven now, though, because the magazine put Lara Stone on their May issue, which dropped this week. At one stage it refreshing to get a break from Stone because she seemed to be in just about everything but considering that we haven't seen much of her in a while besides that recent Vogue Turkey cover, it's good to see her back again.
After much speculation back in December Condé Nast confirmed that they were launching a Dutch version of Vogue and now it's finally here. The cover of their first issue dropped this week and stars models Romee Strijd, Ymre Stiekema and Josefien Rodermans who were shot by Marc DeGroot. While the cover isn't bad, I was expecting it to be more stand out and feature one of their bigger models like Saskia de Brauw or Lara Stone.
Last week we tweeted an image of Rachel Zoe as a vampire in the latest issue LOVE magazine but that's not the only interesting thing in the magazine's new issue. A fresh faced Kate Moss appears alongside Lara Stone wearing floral embroidered cat ears lensed by Mario Testino.
Issue 7 of the magazine hits newsstands on February 6.
Since becoming editor at Vogue Paris, Emmanuelle Alt has slowly began to take the covers in a new direction. Rather than sticking with the magazine's former favourites like Lara Stone and Daria Werbwoy, Alt chose Arizona Muse to front their November issue cover.
Although the model has appeared on Vogue Italia, Australia and Korea, this is her first Vogue Paris cover and the first time we've seen a smiling model on the front of it for a while.
It's no secret that LOVE's Issue 6 has been a success. Their multiple covers featuring everyone from Elle Fanning to Lara Stone had us all waiting in anticipation to firstly hear the confirmed cover line-up, and then to see them final images.
Covers aside, we're currently in love with an editorial, which features in the issue starring Alessandra Ambrosio. The Victoria's Secret model looks unrecognisable. The last time she appeared in the magazine she was styled in her usual pin up-sex symbol way but for their latest issue, Ambrosio does her best sailor impression in this masculine, navy-inspired shoot.
Knitting. I started two months ago when I quit smoking. I have a totally addictive personality so I instantly downloaded all these apps for patterns. I’ve made lots of squares in different colours and then I’m sewing them together to make a blanket, it’s getting quite big now.
Being sexy is something inside and not everybody has it. I don't think I ever really had it, a lot of it is to do with confidence. Lady Gaga, for example, walking around in her bra and knickers and being really sexy but still she's not sexy at all, to me
