For Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 Valentino’s creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli aimed to bring the paintings of Flemish artist Vermeer to life. Inspired by the unsettling beauty of Girl with a Pearl Earring, the graceful and restrained collection is unveiled in a new clip which takes us behind the scenes on the campaign, shot by Inez & Vinoodh.


ImageKarl Lagerfeld has shot the new Spring Summer 2013 lookbook for Chanel, featuring the Dutch model Stef van der Laan in vinyl wide brimmed hats, pearl jewellery, tweed suits and the new hoop bag. The colour palette of black, white and dreamy pastels set the tone for the new season which plays with proportions and shapes. The feel of the lookbook is reminiscent of the space in which the Spring Summer 2013 collection was shown at the Grand Palais on October 2nd – white walls, clean lines – a classic minimalism, so beloved by Lagerfeld.

Daphne Groeneveld is a modern day Bridgitte Bardot in this charming new short film for cult perfume Dior Addict. Set in the idyllic seaside town of St Tropez, Groeneveld frolics in the sand and sashays through the streets playing with the hearts of the local men all to the tune of Stereo Total’s sweet track I Love You, Ono. The Dutch model is captured at her best by director Jonas Akerlund with her wide toothy grin and cute camera winks, girl crush anyone?
