Princess Diana‘s niece, Lady Kitty Spencer has been in the fashion spotlight for a while now. The aristocrat is known for her impeccable sense of style that got the attention of many designers and the public. Her latest fashion gig is a luxury deal with Bvulgari to represent the brand. Although she’s been friends with the brand for some time now, this is the first official partnership between her and the fashion house. Previously, Lady Kitty Spencer has helped Bvulgari to raise funds for several charities such as the Elton John Aids Foundation and Save the Children. According to the brand, the blonde beauty represents its “fearless attitude.” Lady Kitty Spencer took it to social media to talk about her new role.
“It is an immense honor to be working with the most iconic Italian jewelry brand in the world. Bvlgari has always been synonymous with creativity, heritage, beauty, and glamour. I am, therefore, very excited to be part of the Bulgari family, as it means experiencing their passion and magic first-hand,” she wrote.
Lady Kitty is no stranger to the world of fashion. A few months ago she got to be a part of Dolce & Gabbana‘s runway show during Milan Fashion Week. At that time, she took it to Instagram to express her excitement. In the photo, you can see Spencer wearing a glamorous glitzy silver number by the brand. Just last week she attended the royal wedding in another bespoke Dolce & Gabbana outfit. Lady Kitty is Prince Harry’s cousin, but she sure didn’t get so much attention because of her relationship with the British royal. Her deep green gown covered in blooming flowers was a real show-stopper. She paired the gorgeous dress with insanely chic velvet orange high heels and elegant green fascinator. Lastly, she accessorized the look with a sparkly necklace by Bvlgari and clutch that matched her pumps. With her stunning appearance, Princess Diana’s niece once again proved that she is the next fashion icon in the making.
Lady Kitty Spencer’s Instagram is full of shots of her gorgeous outfits. She is a regular to many high-profile fashion shows. The model was spotted sitting front row at Zimmermann, Bottega Veneta, Schiaparelli, Michael Kors, and more. It seems that she has inherited the love for fashion and modeling from her mother, Victoria Aitken, was also a model in her youth. Considering the fact that the world is still obsessed with her beloved aunt, Princess Diana, Kitty Spencer has some serious chances to become fashion’s new It girl.

More brands are accepting these standards and are including them in campaigns, on the runway and in all types of advertising material. Gucci is one of those luxury labels that sure knows how to stand out. For their latest jewelry and watch ads, the fashion house tapped the infamous Tippi Hedren. She is an iconic actress and renowned model from the 50s.

The pieces are just as opulent and glamorous as you would expect. The rings and bracelets are decorated with statement stones in green, pink, yellow and feature the signature double G logo.

The gorgeous shots were taken by Colin Dodgson. They are also accompanied by a video that is a total pleasure to watch.

Models Emily Unkles, Tex Santos-Shaw, Victoria Schons and Tom Atton, dripping in jewelry, visit Hedren in her opulently decorated room. Starting from the mesmerizing tablecloths, fabulous chairs to the luxury clothing, the brand knows how to leave an impression.

Tippi is also the mother of the popular Hollywood actress Melanie Griffith and grandmother of Dakota Johnson. It’s more than obvious that beauty runs in the family. The stunning 88-year-old Hedren was Alfred Hitchcock’s muse back in the day.
Last year Alessandro Michele tapped Dakota to star in his Gucci Bloom fragrance campaign. Now, the genius designer decided to make it a family affair. This is not the first time that the brand has featured an elderly model in their ads. In 2016, 79-year-old Vanessa Redgrave fronted Gucci’s Resort 2017 campaign.

The designer and creative director behind the brand, Alison Chemla is a close friend of the model. Since Emily has an eight-figure following on Instagram, it felt natural for Chemla to tap the Instagram sensation for her latest campaign.
“Emily has been a good friend and close to the brand for some time now. Launching Loucite was really special to me and this felt like the right moment to work together,’ the jewelry designer explained.
LOUcite by Alison Lou is an extension of the main jewelry line and offers fun and more accessible pieces. Emily Ratajkowski faced the new 12-piece collection of the LOUcite line that consists of playful jelly hoops.

Alison Chemla is taking this trend to another level with her vibrantly-hued jelly hoops. These earrings come in three sizes (small, medium and large), and multiple vivid colors. Ratajkowski modeled the fun earrings in nothing but transparent PVC pieces. The brunette bombshell is a well-known pro when it comes to scandalous shots. She looks sizzling in the campaign photos wearing nude PVC jacket as well as a pink and brown one. In one of the shots, you could the 26-year-old stunner flaunting coral-hued jelly hoops while posing topless with her arms folded over her chest.
In the campaign pictures, Ratajkowski sports a fresh-faced makeup with a flirty peachy flush on the cheeks. Her hair is styled in messy waves that give an effortless vibe to the look. Although is hard to overlook how stunning Ratajkowski looks in the campaign, you can’t miss the LOUcite vibrant jewelry pieces either. According to Alison, in the making of the jelly hoops, the designer team paid attention to the tiniest details. Besides the three sizes, the jewelry designer made sure that every pair is “light as a feather”. Additionally, the earring backs of the hoops are heart shaped.
The LOUcite jelly hoops are already available for purchase. According to the brand’s website, you could get the small ones for $125, the medium-sized hoops for $145, and the large pair, for $165. In addition to the earrings, every order comes with branded clear Alison Lou tote. Customers could also get a 3-pair set (1 pair of each size) with a hologram pouch for $395.

Statement accessories are one of the best parts of every Fashion Week. Designers love presenting show-stopping bags, necklaces, earrings that are complimenting the items of their collections. Many famous fashion houses showed their spring collections during Milan Fashion Week. Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Giorgio Armani, Prada, and Bottega Veneta came back to the capital of fashion to show their latest collections and incredible accessories.

This season Dolce & Gabbana went again with the excessive glamour. There were mesmerizing crowns bejeweled with multicolored crystals and pearls. The earrings and necklaces were all red carpet material.
For Spring 2018 Donatella Versace traveled back to the 90s. She paid tribute to her late brother and recreated his most iconic creations. There were many beautiful hair accessories, eye-catching earrings, and unique handbags.
Gucci and Alessandro Michele, on the other hand, went back to the 70s and 80s. Alessandro loves doing excessively accessorized looks, and this time, things weren’t any different. He had Gucci’s logo all over the bags and jewelry. Michele involved sparkling hats from the 70s and square old-fashioned eyewear. Most of his necklaces featured the two G’s together with pearls and crystals.
Miuccia Prada said yes to another huge trend for Spring 2018. The Italian designer had her models wear chic Matrix-inspired sunglasses. For a bolder effect, she added colors such as red and yellow to the eyewear. The entire collection was all about women’s empowerment. So the accessories carried that vibe. The sunglasses gave the models a superhero look, so they fit ideally with the designs.
