Stuart Weitzman’s campaigns are always starstruck with the most famous modeling names in the industry. For the Spring 2018 ads, the brand decided to tap an epic supermodel duo who belong to two different generations. For the first time ever Gigi Hadid got to shoot a campaign with the iconic Kate Moss. In the black and white photos, the two gorgeous ladies show off the natural chemistry between them while flaunting the Spring 2018 collection of the brand.
Kate and Gigi are accompanied by the famous male model Jordan Barrett. Stuart Weitzman is just brand that decided to celebrate women in their latest ad materials. In the official pictures, you will see the two ladies in a dominant role over Berrett. Their collection is meant to inspire and empower ladies from around the world. In one of the shots, everyone is dressed in white from head to toes. Kate is flaunting a pair of embellished Fringe Dust sandals, while Gigi is wearing the Iris mules. This is Hadid’s favorite pair in the collection.
The second photo is completely different, with a strong grunge vibe. The models are wearing all-black outfits and the chic Expert moto boots. Kate’s favorite design from Weitzman is the black over-the-knee boots named Reserve Classic, which she’s had for over five years.
Gigi gushed on Instagram over her first experience with such a legend. The older Hadid sister shared several behind-the-scenes moments with her all-time inspiration.
“I had the great honor and pleasure of shooting the new @stuartweitzman campaign with the one and only Kate. @katemossagency, I had the greatest time with you, and am forever touched by your spirit and presence. I am beyond proud to be part of the SW family with you and our beloved @mariotestino @sarajanehoare @giovannimorelli8@sduff20 ♡ ss18 campaign out soon ! #inourshoes”.
The shots were taken by the iconic Mario Testino, who often collaborates with the shoe brand. Stuart Weitzman has a long history of tapping ultra-popular models for their campaigns. Gigi became the brand’s ambassador back in 2016. Moss, on the other hand, is a veteran, she’s been with the brand since 2012. Aside from these two beauties, Gisele and Natalia Vodianova represented the shoe company in the past.
Hadid designed her first collection with Weitzman in November 2017. Her EYELOVE line was a huge success and set up a new trend, so now everyone is obsessed with mules. The full Spring 2018 collection by Stuart Weitzman is already available for pre-order online at stuartweitzman.com.
The iconic American designer Calvin Klein just released an artbook. It took Mr. Klein over three years to handpick the photographs that are a part of the book. He struggled to choose from around 400,000 pictures, all of them meaningful and important for the history of the brand. Calvin sized it down to 436 pages that contain 30 years of his magnificent career.
“People had suggested it for many years. Mrs (Jacqueline Kennedy) Onassis was the first one who asked me. God knows why. Anna Wintour had been pushing me to do it for a long time. But I don’t like looking back; I like to be in the moment and think about the future. Plus, I thought it might be emotional, and I didn’t want to go there. But I do a lot of speaking to students, and I realized they knew my name, but they certainly had no idea of the imagery we used. And I wanted them to be able to learn from that.” Klein told The New York Times.
Calvin is one of those revolutionary designers that brought many changes to the fashion scene. Thanks to his innovative mind and forward-thinking, we are living in a world where fashion can be whatever we want to be.
The stunning coffee-table book holds a lot of history. It tells the story of how Klein broke all possible boundaries and set new standards for everyone. The designer is known for his seductive, sensual ad campaigns that weren’t common at that time. He brought a lot of subtle nudity with epic modeling names. Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, Brooke Shields, Mark Wahlberg are just a part of the faces you will see in this collection. The man himself hasn’t been a part of the fashion industry for 20 years. During his fruitful career, he had the honors to work with the best photographers. Bruce Weber, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Mario Sorrenti, Patrick Demarchelier were all behind the lens of his progressive ad campaigns.
The artbook has three segments named after important periods of Klein’s career. Rebellious, Minimal and Stories portray the most iconic moments of the 70s, 80s, and 90s that show his evolution, genius work, and his controversy.
The charity organization “God’s Love We Deliver” will benefit from the sales of the artbook. The book will be released in November in collaboration with Rizzoli. In meantime, you can pre-order it on Amazon for $90. The book “Calvin Klein” ends with the powerful words: “I stand by everything I did and would not have done it any other way”.

With the rise of social media, it seems easier than ever to gain the title It girl. But the term It girl isn’t related to Instagram at all. Many ladies were internationally known for their distinctive fashion expression even when there was no internet. The British fashion history has an impressive list of women, who stunned with both their beauty and their unique style. From Twiggy, the model with a boyish pixie cut and bold falsies to Cara Delevingne who convinced women to love their thick eyebrows, take a look at the British beauties who redefined It Girl.
Naomi Campbell is still walking runways even at the age of 47. The British supermodel established herself as one of the most influential British It girls. Her fearless personality and impeccable style that she build thanks to her career in fashion made her one of the most in-demand models in the late 80s and 90s. Even after more than 30 years in the business, the fashion world still can’t get enough of the legendary Naomi Campbell.
Tahliah Debrett Barnett also known as FKA Twigs is probably the boldest chic on the British fashion scene. The singer with multiple talents became insanely popular for her edgy style. FKA Twigs follows the trends in a distinctive way. The English singer is known for her attention-grabbing outfits both on the red carpet and off-duty. You can’t miss her whether is on the streets of London or at a glamorous event.
Twiggy, Cara Delevigne, Adele, Princess Diana, Kate Moss, Jane Birkin and more are some of the British beauties who set new standards for the term It girl. Besides their successful careers, these ladies are well-known as timeless style icons. They will always serve as a major style inspiration.
Another London Fashion Week is coming to an end. After seven successful days of high-end shows, and many Spring 2018 collections, London is ready to wrap it up. High-end fashion houses such as Burberry, Erdem, Versus Versace, Mary Katrantzou presented their latest designs and set new, fresh trends for the following seasons. These brands gathered an impressive number of celebrities that showed off their best looks.
Burberry assembled many famous influencers to watch their show from the front rows. Cara Delevingne was there to support her favorite fashion house. And as expected, she wore plaid, the signature print of the brand. Cara chose a pair of bold red plaid pants and matching sneakers. She paired the look with a black crop-top and black leather jacket.
Kate Moss brought her beautiful daughter Lila Grace for the Topshop event at London Fashion Week. The 14-year-old has inherited her mom’s model genes. This was her first official front-row experience. Lila didn’t miss the chance to make a fashion statement. She wore a pair of check pants and a black leather jacket. Kate stunned in a chic all-black jumpsuit. The stylish duo showed up together with Stella Jones, Mick Jones’s daughter.
The Hadid sisters now took over London, just like they took over New York earlier this month. Bella and Gigi transformed the streets of London into their runway. Gigi opted for a laid-back look. She showed up in casual jeans and a black leather jacket. Bella chose a chicer outfit, flaunting the most fashionable print at the moment. The 20-year-old model rocked a long plaid coat, black dress, and emerald over-the-knee boots. The Hadid duo is getting ready for the next huge show, Gigi’s third collection with Tommy Hilfiger.
From Olivia Palermo, Jourdan Dunn, to Victoria Beckham, take a look at the standout A-lister moments during London Fashion Week.
Kate Moss is one of the most iconic supermodels of our time, so there’s no real surprise that she would inevitably found a modeling agency of her own. The Business of Fashion conducted an interview with Moss, in which she stated her intent to launch the business in the coming month. That’s exciting news in and of itself, yet the most exciting part of Kate Moss’ modeling business venture is in her unofficial mission statement for it. “I don’t really want pretty people… I want to create stars,” she said in her interview with the website.
The English supermodel was discovered when she was only 14 years old, meaning that her love affair with the fashion industry has lasted nearly 30 years. With such a milestone coming up, it only seems befitting that she is making a move to give back, so to speak, to the industry that scooped her up at such a young age. Moss was discovered by model agency Storm, with whom she has been with up until this past March.
“I want to focus more on managing people’s careers than just [running] a model agency… I want people that want to sing and dance and act,” she continued on, in her BoF interview.
Models are a lot more talented than many people might give them credit for – walking in sky high heels down a twinkling runway, getting the perfect angle for that editorial photoshoot, or just working with a variety of people on a daily basis, among other things. And with Moss’s stated goal of getting models, who are more like Renaissance women, we’re looking to see a myriad of new models that challenge the definition of beauty within the fashion industry.
And so, Moss has the website for her business active online, in a bare minimum state. The website now consists of one photo, with a contact email listed above it for those with questions. Similarly, the agency has a new Instagram account up and running, with one picture posted. Earlier on Monday, the account had accumulated 1,000 followers, but by the end of the day the page was at 154,000. Such a wide jump isn’t surprising as word spreads around.
Moss chose to unveil her new website at a hectic time for modeling, launching it during London Fashion Week, which is actually a great move on her part. With the fashion hype at its yearly high, modeling is on the minds of many aspiring young women around the world, so modeling agencies are probably very busy this time of year anyway.
And with Moss at the helm of this exciting new business, she and her team will likely be seeing a large number of aspiring faces; perhaps we’ll find the new Kate Moss among them!

Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury has just ventured out into the beauty industry creating her first-ever fragrance. To hit it even bigger, she has teamed up with model Kate Moss for the official launch of her Scent of a Dream fragrance.
Formulated to generate “an emotional pathway to the brain and to the sex receptors” or, to put it in other words, “to incite a desire that you can’t control,” Charlotte Tilbury’s debut fragrance is probably one of the most highly anticipated beauty products of the year, and the fact that the makeup artist tapped iconic Kate Moss as the brand ambassador of the fragrance makes everything even better.
Tilbury, who is often described as one of the world’s leading makeup artists and is mainly renowned for her notorious “the Tilbury tap”, launched her eponymous makeup line less than a few years ago, with the Magic Cream being one of the line’s most demanded products. She has launched the highly covetable Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips lipsticks inspired by 16 celebrities just recently.
Now that she finally entered the world of the fragrances, we can’t help but hope the red-haired artist will keep on (literally) infusing the hair with similar sophisticated and philosophical scents for many years to come.
The Charlotte Tilbury Scent of a Dream fragrance is not an average perfume, as its balanced formula is reportedly capable of producing “olfactory ecstasy” that, as a result, functions as a sort of olfactory version of the mythological Mermaids Singing.
“I have been mixing my own secret scent for years and have been fascinated by the idea that one’s perfume can attract others and also change the energy frequency of the people and environment around you,” Tilbury told British Vogue in an official statement, revealing that besides makeup and art she literally likes to play with the chemistry of seduction.
Whether the Scent of a Dream is a sort of snake charmer for humans or not, only time (and a few volunteers) will tell. What we do know for sure, however, is that the Kate Moss x Charlotte Tilbury combination is seductive for sure.
Kate Moss, who was one of the first to receive a sample of the fragrance, got captured by talented photographer Sølve Sundsbø in the perfume’s campaign, who skillfully managed to translate the fragrance’s seductive concept to a dreamlike array of sophisticated, free-spirited pictures that could charm anyone for sure.
Overwhelmed with glittering golden shadows and sparkles (which recall the fragrance’s packaging too), Moss is seen sporting a Chloé dress out in the wild, with an au naturel look and a perfect foundation that, in return, recalls Tilbury’s makeup style.
Fairytale-like and glamorous, the campaign will likely enter the Fashion Hall of Fame and quickly become unanimously regarded as iconic for sure, as everything that Moss touches turns to gold.
Developed by perfumer François Robert, the Charlotte Tilbury Scent of a Dream fragrance will be available for purchase in 30, 50 and 100 ml (£49, £69 and £96 accordingly), on CharlotteTibury.com and in Selfridges starting from the 15th of August.

42 has never looked so good. It’s no secret that Kate Moss is one of the best in the business, and so there is no surprise that Alberta Ferretti would choose to cast the supermodel as the front for her fall 2016 advertising campaign. The campaign photoshoot was captured by photographers Luigi and Iango and styled by Joe McKenna. The shoot took place in London at Big Sky Studios.
Just from looking at the photos, you can see that they were taken in an atelier, with props consisting of very simple furnishings, like a plain wooden bench and a timeless black chair. These simplistic additions to the photos really made Moss and the fabulous clothes the focal points of the shots. The model was able to pose in new ways, showing the clothes in new angles and in use, which helped elevate the notions of wearability.
The clothes selected for the Alberta Ferretti fall 2016 campaign were some of the strongest pieces in the line, all with the classic Ferretti femininity. The fall 2016 collection was all about dreaminess and romanticism, but there is always some edge that comes through in her work, which is what Moss is truly embodying in this campaign. The shots were produced in black and white as well, which only served to further feelings of the seductive and edgy side of romance.
The photo of Moss wearing a tweed coat, posing on the wooden desk was the most seductive shot of the bunch, showing a great deal of leg, all the way down to the gold-embroidered suede ankle boots. Ever keeping the shoot modern, Moss’s expressions projected a feeling of amused boredom, almost as though she is personifying a woman who knows her time is being wasted. This brings a balance between strength and composure, an expression deceptively complex to pull off.
In another, more sultry shot, the supermodel wears the line’s sheer black number. One might expect this to be the outfit that would call for a strong and seductive pose like with the fur-trimmed tweed jacket in the last shot, but instead the shot was directed to have reserve. The bent leg poised on the black chair brought in the seduction to show off the outfit, but the way Moss is covering the rest of her body, and ever with the straight face, this is one of the most cinematic shots of the bunch.
Other shots were graceful, and straightforward with the balance between dynamics and fashion, but Moss naturally remained glamorous through the shoot. Between the design of the clothes, the black and white styling of the photoshoot, and the lack of other features in the shoot to deter from the high fashion model and clothes, the Alberta Ferretti fall 2016 campaign always kept this lovely feeling of vintage cinema throughout.
With Kate Moss being such a classic beauty, and an icon at that, she was able to fulfill the requirements of the campaign perfectly. The ad campaign features a total of eight images of Moss, and the images will officially be unveiled in July.

After teaming up in Mango’s latest fall 2015 campaign, the video of which went viral within a few hours, British supermodels Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss have joined forces for the second time to star in Mango’s holiday 2015 campaign. The pair has also recently worked together on the My Burberry campaign, and looks to be more indissoluble than ever.
Moss, now 41, apparently took Delevingne, 23, under her wing, creating what appears to be one of the most successful duos in the fashion industry. It is also interesting to notice how the two British models followed a similar path despite the 20-year age gap. While Moss is probably one of the most iconic faces of the fashion industry, rocking the catwalks since 1988, Delevingne is an emerging actress, who is a champion at the androgynous look. Both the models, however, boast enviable silhouettes and charming charisma and that perfectly fits Mango’s sensual holiday 2015 campaign mood. Their different and contrasting attitudes also inject an intriguing and appealing yin and yang allure to the campaign, making the two stars look like each other, as they do really have #somethingincommon.
The Spanish high street brand has a cheerful and sexy point of view on what this upcoming Christmas holiday season should be all about: its new collection celebrates diversity alternating boyfriend outfits with ultra-feminine plunging necklines and hourglass silhouettes. Looking more radiant than ever, Moss showcases sparkling and sequined tops, Sixties-inspired mini dresses with stripes, and metallic tops with deep V-necklines that will make anyone turn heads at any New Year’s Eve party. Moreover, bell-bottom elegant trousers, an asymmetric slim-fit black dress and a Seventies-inspired silver maxi dress are just a friendly reminder that Kate Moss is officially back and is absolutely not going to retire any time soon.
If Moss has just proved her status is not one of a waning supermodel, Delevingne reminded us why she quickly rose to the top becoming the most renowned supermodel of this new millennial generation. Posing with her signature androgynous look, Cara showcases her youthful and mysterious attitude wearing open-back black maxi dresses, plunging jumpsuits that sensually display extreme cleavage, sequined and oversized tops with vertical stripes, and skinny black trousers, which gracefully enhance her toned figure.
Mango’s display of sequins, total black outfits, metallic fabrics and stripes is perfectly in tune with these holidays’ trends, as proven by other internationally famous fast-fashion chains such as Topshop, Pull & Bear and Free People, whose holiday lookbooks channel similar trends, too. Violeta by Mango, with its curvy-friendly pieces, celebrates sequins and total black outfits, too.
Mango’s one-of-a-kind Christmas 2015 campaign also features two male models, all dressed up in their elegant tuxedos, posing in black & white photos with Moss and Delevingne. Each picture is perfectly balanced, and looks more like a private photograph’s work of art rather than a mere advertisement campaign. Well done, Mango!

Since being discovered at the age of 14 while waiting at JFK Airport, in New York, Kate Moss has quickly begun her climb to success, becoming one of the most famous top-models of our times and a real style icon inspiring women from around the world. We all have been intrigued by her heroin chic look, and we all remember how she used to trash hotel’s rooms while dating her former boyfriend Johnny Depp. Despite her problems with drug-addiction and with some other tumultuous exes, no one has ever doubted Moss’ passion for clothes, which led her to design some best-selling collections for Topshop – one of the most famous fast-fashion chains. To our major surprise, Kate Moss has also recently added ‘interior designer’ to her already impressive Curriculum Vitae, after collaborating with The Lakes by Yoo – the fine luxury estate agency founded by designer Philippe Starck and property entrepreneur John Hitchcox. Situated in the Cotswolds, UK, Yoo’s waterside homes are set in hundreds of acres of idyllic English countryside, and Kate Moss could not pass up the chance to collaborate with these two artistic minds.
Kate Moss thus spent the last 6 months standing over the interior design of the Barnhouse, a new luxury home located in the Cotswolds, built from green oak and local stone, and inspired by agricultural style buildings. With five bedrooms, a swimming pool and an acre of land, the Barnhouse is in the middle of a silver birch wood, which can be admired from its floor-to-ceiling windows. Moss, who owns a country retreat in Oxfordshire, has never made a secret of her love for the English countryside, and wanted us to see what happens when she combines her glam-rock style with a traditional rural-looking building.
Moss’ participation with this project brought Twenties, Sixties and Seventies influences to the mansion, which can be easily spotted respectively thanks to the velvet sofas, the black-and-white guest rooms with pink curtains, the ethnic Peruvian bed covers and the four-poster bed created by artisan David Haddock, who has also previously designed Kate’s personal dressing room at her London home. Artworks by Damien Hirst, one of the most prominent members of the artistic collective known as YBAs – Young British Artists – give Barnhouse some of the best ‘90s vibes available, while framed photos of Bob Dylan, Sid Vicious and Elvis Presley will remind its future buyer of Moss’ close relationship with the wild and passionate Rock ‘n’ Roll lifestyle. Moreover, Chris Levin’s artworks give Barnhouse an ironic pop culture turn and manifest Moss’ enthusiasm for contemporary photography, also shown through some framed pictures of Kate Moss herself (including some of her notorious topless photos) that at the same time self-explain the new-born interior designer’s philosophy, which may be described as a mash-up of ‘all the cool things ever happened since the XX century-including me, of course’.
All these pop-culture references, along with the main Twenties, Sixties and Seventies influences, make a great contrast with the outdoors and indoors earthy-colors, perfectly juxtaposing a peaceful nature setting with some more comfortable and modern interiors. Just in case you were wondering and had a few million pounds to spend for a second house, Barnhouse designed by Kate Moss is on the market for £ 2.5 million, and is surely going to be worth more in the future! As for us (A.K.A those who cannot afford such a mansion but totally like Kate Moss), well, we just have to wait for her next move!
