Sofia Coppola goes goth for Louis Vuitton ad campaign

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Sofia-Coppola-Louis-Vuitton-SS14

Here’s Sofia Coppola modelling for Marc Jacobs’ last ever Louis Vuitton campaign. The SS14 images have just broken and were shot by Steven Meisel and styled by Karl Templer with Guido Palau and Pat McGrath on hair and make-up duty.

Marc Jacobs rallied a few of his favourite muses to model for the campaign, chiming with the prevailing trend of the last few seasons for an all-ages approach to fashion (Edie Campbell, Catherine Deneuve and Fan Bingbing also feature).

Sofia Coppola rarely lends her face to ad campaigns and I so admire her for this. Instead she works with designers who she is genuinely friends with, hence those Marc Jacobs fragrance campaigns we all love, and this slightly goth-y Vuitton one.

Introducing Printic prints

Printic-Disneyrollergirl 2

I’ve just bought a Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 camera to satisfy my old school Polaroid cravings. (Alas the Impossible Project’s new-style Polaroid film wasn’t working for me.) The white bordered credit card-sized photos are perfect for personal keepsakes and the camera is a fun addition to parties, weddings and family events.

But let’s face it, it’s not always convenient to lug a camera around. So for the iPhone generation, Printic is a cute take on the Polaroid format. Install the app on your iPhone/Android phone, set up a profile, then select images to get them printed remotely. Continue reading

I styled these pictures a few weeks ago for Boys By Girls with photographer Emma Miranda Moore and model Laurence Ainscough at Premier. We wanted to capture the feel of a visitor staying in an unfamiliar house and feeling slightly displaced. And maybe watched…! Laurence was brilliant fun and regaled us with his adventures as a student in Paris. I’ll be putting his interview up soon…

Note to self: next time you visit Frieze, allow a whole day, if not two. My half day allocation wasn’t nearly enough once I had factored in a one-hour talk by photographer Stephen Shore. Continue reading

Quiet please!

The style in Tommy Ton’s Style.com fashion month round up was shoutier than ever but I preferred the simpler looks. Denim, tailoring, trench coats and trainers. The updates are in the mix and the unselfconscious attitude…

H&M magazine: autumn 2013

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

H&M -magazine-COVER

The new autumn issues are out and not only are we gifted doorstop sized Vogues, but also the free zines from the high street. I have a four-page story in H&M magazine on the silhouette that I believe will define this decade. That is, the new body conscious silhouette that’s the opposite of clingy WAG frocks and all about confident anti-fit shapes…
