Model Takeover: Louis Vuitton's Alma Campaign May Be the Beginning of a New Era

By Justin Fenner

Louis Vuitton calls its brand new ad campaign for the iconic Alma bag “Chic on the Bridge” – which is fitting, as the images were shot on bridges in New York, Paris, and Shanghai.

Steven Klein shot the images, which feature models Karlie Kloss, Iris Struebegger, Jac Jagaciak, and Daria Strokous. In each city they pose with a differently colored Alma bag: taxicab yellow in New York, French blue in Paris, and lacquer red in Shanghai.

But the beautiful images might be the beginning of a new tide of ads for Vuitton: market sources told WWD that the brand has plans to phase out its Core Values campaigns, which have featured notable figures like Angelina Jolie, Catherine Deneuve, Mikhail Gorbechev, and Keith Richards.

La Vie en Rose: Karlie Kloss Stars in Moda Operandi's Flower-Filled Spring 2013 Ads

By Justin Fenner

Florals? For Spring? Absolutely. In Moda Operandi’s Spring 2013 campaign, Karlie Kloss dons some of the season’s prettiest flowery pieces, from an array of designers that includes Thom Browne, Rodarte, Suno, and Katie Ermilio, among others.

But photographer Cedric Buchet‘s dramatic campaign, which is called “La Vie en Rose,” doesn’t simply feature the flowers on the clothing. Instead, a number of blooms were digitally superimposed over the photos to create a buoyant visual effect. Some of the flowers float over Kloss’s lithe figure, while others simply fill whatever room she’s in.

A look at the campaign here in the gallery.

The Style Stars Are Out to Play at amfAR's Annual New York Gala

By Brittney Stephens

The amfAR New York Gala isn’t just a haven for stunning celebrity red-carpet looks; it’s also for a good cause. The annual event has become one of the city’s most successful and high-profile AIDS benefits, saluting some of the biggest names in entertainment, fashion, and art. Luckily for us, it never fails to bring out a slew of stylish do-gooders – and tonight’s event did not disappoint.

It was a black-and-white kind of night for heavy-hitters like Heidi Klum and Karlie Kloss (both clad in Michael Kors), Hilary Rhoda, and Chrissy Teigen, who all donned dresses in the graphic color palette. Sarah Jessica Parker went with a bright pink strapless sheath from Maison Martin Margiela, while Crystal Renn went for full-on glamour in a striking red gown.

Here's the Adorable Alber Elbaz Skype Video Everyone's Talking About

By Justin Fenner

An actual maelstrom kept Alber Elbaz from participating in Spring 2013 campaign shoot, so he joined in on all the fun via Skype.

Hurricane Sandy and back-to-back fittings in Paris kept Elbaz from flying to New York when Steven Meisel shot the ads, according to WWD. So the creative director made a video call to oversee the proceedings that pops up in the middle of the campaign film. “It’s almost like being in New York without flying,” he says, later adding that “the perspective is just sick.”

Sick indeed – Meisel created a dreamy landscape (with models including Karlie Kloss, Saskia de Brauw, and Daria Strokous) so beautiful that even Elbaz couldn’t help but ooh and aah over the pictures. “It’s divine,” he says. “I feel I’m in a dream. I feel I’m in a cloud.” A look at the beautiful cloud below.

Video: Mercedes-Benz CLA stars in sweeping short with supermodel Karlie Kloss

Karlie Koss Mercedes-Benz CLA

The Mercedes-Benz CLA earned itself a spot on our list of the top five unveils of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, and for good reason. The German luxury compact is the first small car from the Silver Arrow that looks suitably premium inside and out. Nowness.com has turned out a new video of the CLA featuring super model Karlie Koss in the lead role. We aren’t entirely sure what the premise is, but from what we can tell, it looks as if the CLA comes to life and proceeds to be a giant jerk.

After Koss stops to take a closer look at a white horse, the CLA gives the supermodel the old stop-and-go treatment before leaving her on the side of the road. Eventually, the sedan makes nice, but Koss has to ride shotgun instead of taking the controls herself. You can check out the video below to see for yourself.
