Cotillard Back for More Dior

You’ve seen her in Dark Knight Rises, Inception, La Vie en Rose
and now you’ll see this stunning Marion Cotillard back for more with Christian Dior’s new campaign for The Lady Dior handbag.

The images, which are taken against a grey background, were captured by
photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino.

Watch the making of this campaign here:

Jessica Lange for Marc Jacobs?

jessica langeThis 64-year-old bombshell is the new face of Marc Jacobs! Definitely unexpected but so true! The choice was evidently well received by fans, who praised the bold move with enthusiastic comments including “Divine!!!!” and “great!”. The glamorous “American Horror Story: Coven” star has cast her spell on the cosmetics industry.

 

 

Baileys For Nutcracker

Behind the scenes for the creation of the latest winter ad campaign for Bailey’s accompanied by a reenactment of the Nutcracker.

We’re treated to a Candyland holiday ball punctuated by a lengthy choreographed dance-fight between the Mouse King and the Nutcracker Prince, which ends when the object of their affection, joins in and turns the tide in the prince’s favor. (You’d think a guy called “nutcracker” could take care of himself.) The film closes with our heroine rejoining her two pals for more partying, along with the line, “Spend time with the girls this Christmas.” (Celebrating the spirit of women has been a recurring Baileys theme.)

 

Latest Ad Campaign from Dolce & Gabbana

They’re two of the hottest faces in Hollywood, so it would only make sense that Scarlett Johansson and Matthew McConaughey front Dolce & Gabbana’s latest campaign.

Watch Wes Anderson’s Lovely New Short Film for Prada

Wes Anderson is a guy who loves his vintage fashion (remember the Louis Vuitton suitcases in The Darjeeling Limited?) and the affection appears to be mutual. Prada has partnered with Anderson to create a branded short called Castello Cavalcanti about a brash race car driver played, of course, by Jason Schwartzman.
