i’ve waited practically all of through campaign season & have posted just about every campaign before this one & this is one of my favorites of the spring. shot by mert + marcus, our beloved joan smalls appears alongside malgosia bela for the SS11 stella mccartney campaign. photographed against a teal studio backdrop, style spotlights were focused on the collections denim pieces, signature boyfriend blazers & low rise heels. represented by IMG, joan smalls has had an enormously successful campaign season; appearing here for stella as well as campaign spots for roberto cavalli, gucci & a signed beauty contract with estee lauder. represented by next models ny, malgosia bela is have a wildly successful new year, appearing for two covers for the month of april & landing spring campaign bookings for nina ricci, iceberg, chloe & roberto cavalli, once again alongside joan. both make a fitting cast for the campaign which focuses on fresh style elements & inspiring creative interpretation in the form of textile, collage cut outs. it’s fresh & modern- the essence of what stella mccartney embodies.

bianca balti for blumarine bellissima

appearing for blumarine’s bellissima fragrance, top model chick bianca balti appears through the lens of michelangelo di battista. surrounded by cherry blossoms with flawless features & light cosmetic accents- balti is, again, one of my favorite females in the game. while i don’t think she’s seen nearly as much as she should be- i am always happy to see her booking campaigns. as the spring face of blanco, francesco scognamiglio & davidoff cool water i never quite understand why bianca isn’t as big as other females working in the fashion. represented by IMG models, bianca is of italian nationality & was originally rejected by elite models back in 2003. that rejection lead her to agency powerhose IMG & debuted on the runways of both milan & paris, walking for costume national, dolce & gabbana, miu miu, lanvin & hermès that spring. from catalog work with victoria’s secret to appearing as a covergirl for french playboy- bianca is one of the baddest. as a runway regular, somehow bianca is able to book campaigns & land contracts left & right- yet, i can’t get enough of this girl. check for this one.

jourdan dunn + sacha m’baye for burberry prorsum, spring

shot by mario testino, jourdan dunn + sacha m’baye appear for a this campaign cameo for burberry prorsum’s spring collection. during the FW11 menswear show season, i had inquired about the male model seen for runway look no. 16 at the dolce show & look at who pops up in the burberry SS11 campaign- yes, sacha. as i had made a conscious decision to  opt out of posting the previously released burberry campaign images, i am very put off by the segregation that is seen in the campaign. as if black & white models couldn’t be photographed together the campaign showcases a release of separate sets this season. i am not clear what message they are looking to broadcast. as two of my favorite model faces in fashion, im very excited for the spot no less. represented by women model management, jourdan dunn has remained a strong force in her return to the runway last year & the new year looks like the same powerful force; represented by select london, sacha’s star is rapidly rising.

karolina kurkova for bottega veneta, spring

appearing for her second ad campaign this season, karolina kurkova appears through the lens of alex pragner for the summer/spring 2011 bottega veneta campaign. represented by IMG, kurkova manages to stay relevant in booking multiple campaigns each season & she also booked the spring max mara campaign. walking for victoria’s secret & consistently booking & blazing high end editorial, internationally- kurkova holds the rank as fashion’s no. 7 highest earning & the no. 19 sexiest. though only a single shot is seen here, the open air shot with the bird flying in the backdrop is a clear indication of the campaigns direction. while bottega venete also boasts acessories- im hoping that more images will surface as the new year progresses. though not spectacular, i can do nothing but respect karolina for as long as she has been in this game & working.

kasia struss for miu miu, spring

through the lens of mert + marcus this stunning image was produced starring kasia struss. represented by women model management, the polish female models is to be joined by querelle jansen & sasha pivovarova for the spring campaign; though those images have not yet been revealed. going from playful to more upscale & mature, the powerful red floor combined with the mirrored backdrop is a sickenly ill accent to the incredible footwear from the collection & allows the printed designs & color blocking of the collection to be seen that much more. mert + marcus are among the best in the business & here they have proven their skill in creating marketable fashion images that attract the art eye as well. beautifully shot.

daria werbowy + clement chabernaud for ferragamo, spring

mario testino photographed daria werbowy of IMG models & clement chaubernaud of wilhelmina for the SS11 salvatore ferragamo ad campaign. refined & classically styled with a bit of italian influence- the images are perfectly produced for the spring season. the direction of spring is always much more relaxed than those of the fall; that sense of relaxation is projected well through these images by testino. the use of natural light & shadows is done beautifully. fitting for the season, completely.
