Gisele Bundchen ditches both the makeup and her underwear for a super sexy, laid-back campaign for Sonia Rykiel. The images, shot by legendary shutterbug Juergen Teller, showcase Bundchen’s natural beauty, flawless skin and killer body.

Following the departure of Jil Sander from her namesake label, the Jil Sander group has announced the peculiar choice of Rodolfo Paglialunga as its new creative director. First cutting his teeth with Romeo Gigli in the ’90s, Paglialunga then spent ten years at Prada reaching the title of design director for women’s wear, before moving to Vionnet remaining until 2011. The new creative director will be based in the company’s Milan headquarters and will, in his words, “…carry forward the fusion between sophistication, luxury and innovation and bring the house [to] the next level”. The designer’s first show for Jil Sander will be for the 2015 spring/summer collection.

Celebrating twenty-five years of its iconic “Eternity” fragrance, Calvin Klein has reissued its 1995 print campaign featuring Christy Turlington and Mark Vanderloo. Captured at the beach by Peter Lindbergh, the pair deliver a romantic pose with wedding rings made clearly visible. Christy recently starred in the brand’s underwear advertisements.
The Eternity Calvin Klein 25th Anniversary Edition bottles are cast in a sleek metallic finish. “For 25 years, ETERNITY Calvin Klein has remained a top-selling global fragrance brand,” says Steve Mormoris, Senior Vice President of American fragrances, Coty Prestige. “Its beloved advertising campaigns are a part of popular culture and are still as relevant today as they always have been”.

Russian model Sasha Luss is the latest Dior beauty face, starring in the brand’s Dior Addict Fluid Sitck print campaign photographed by Steven Meisel and styled by Carine Roitfeld. This new lip product is neither a lipstick or gloss or lacquer, according to its press release. Fluid and glossy, it is a hybrid of all three. I am loving the new direction seemingly every brand is embracing, which is scream-out-loud color against simple backdrops. As a minimalist at heart, nothing makes me happier than a crisp white background allowing the model, and the product, to shine through versus a picturesque landscape forcing not one element to be the main focus.

Much like the collection, Celine’s spring-summer 2014 campaign is a juxtaposition of frenetic energy and cool composure. With the help of choreographer Stephen Galloway, models Daria Werbowy (who also appeared in several previous ads for the brand), Julia Nobis, Amanda Murphy and Binx Walton pose for Juergen Teller in the label’s artful prints and modern silhouettes styled by Camilla Nickerson.

Promoting YSL’s Baby Doll Kiss and Blush products, the new Cara Delevingne and Ondria Hardin beauty campaign for YSL is stunning; by far, my favorite beauty campaign I have seen thus far. It is refreshing to the general moodiness YSL employs with their beauty/fragrance ads and really allows Cara’s natural beauty to shine through. Give me those brows, Cara!
