COVER: NAOMI WATTS BY WILL DAVIDSON, VOGUE AUSTRALIA, FEBRUARY 2013

Naomi Watts heralds in Spring with her gorgeous Will Davidson lensed cover for February’s Vogue Australia.

The actress who currently stars in the disaster flick The Impossible, looks effortlessly elegant in a striking green Gucci gown and Bulgari bracelet, while being surrounded by a beautiful multi-coloured floral wall and the caption “Pretty as a Princess”, no doubt a reference to her upcoming role playing Princess Diana.

Check out the serene behind the scenes video from the Vogue shoot here, which reminds me so much of how I used to build sets for my ad campaign…*Nostalgia moment*

AD CAMPAIGN: GUCCI SPRING/SUMMER 2013 BY MERT ALAS & MARCUS PIGGOTT

The brand harken back to the 90s with an uncluttered and sleek look that brings the bright garments to the forefront without losing sight of the “Gucci woman”, played here by the stunning Anja Rubik and Karmen Pedaru.

THE 2012 “I WANT TO BE IN THAT ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN” AWARD

Why I’m dreaming of being a smart female in an advertising campaign I don’t know… #fail

Anyway, I originally began this blog to collate and critique fashion editorials and ad campaigns, having been someone who previously art directed a few over the past few years. So it’s only fitting that I should have this category in here to…just with a humorous twist of course…

The 2012 “I Want To Be In That Advertising Campaign Award” goes to…

COVER: JESSICA CHASTAIN BY BRUCE WEBER, VOGUE GERMANY, JANUARY 2013

Red seems to be the January cover trend in 2013 as the flame haired Jessica Chastain graces Vogue Germany wrapped in Gucci and lensed by Bruce Weber.

The folds of the spring/summer 2013 gown work wonderfully with the typeface – a font that I would normally not be a fan of, and Jessica peering from beneath the fungi-like folds make this quite an enchanting cover.

COVER: MARION COTILLARD BY TIM WALKER, W MAGAZINE, DECEMBER 2012

Marion Cotillard adds some eerie drama to December as she cover’s W Magazine in a beautiful red Dior Haute Couture belted cashmere coat along with a Dior belt, ring and Atsuko Kudo gloves, while being groped by several hands from the wall behind her and working a severe black bob.

I absolutely love the Tim Walker lensed cover! And the accompanying editorial is just as great with the French actress wearing several designers including  Lanvin, Jean Paul Gaultier, Dolce & Gabbana, within a surreal, fantasy led, red hued “wonderland”.

Check out the “Red Hot” editorial here.

AD CAMPAIGN: GUCCI AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY MERT ALAS & MARCUS PIGGOTT

I tire of hearing the phrase “typically Gucci” when it comes to their advertising campaigns, it sounds so negative. How about accepting the fact it doesn’t need to be anything BUT Gucci!?

Anyway… True to form, Mert & Marcus have delivered an exquisite autumn/winter campaign – A gothic, dark and decadent series of photographs with a sublime set design and a hauntingly beautiful cast, alongside the equally captivating collection.
