Well, aren’t we popular. Jude Law is already the face of Dunhill and now has two more companies tapping him to front their ad campaigns. Coincidentally enough, both new creatives were snapped by photographer Peter Lindbergh. The 40-year-old is smart to cash in on his dashingly good looks, since he has an iffy track record at the box office.
Dior Homme Cologne is the latest collaboration with the French fashion house. The Contagion actor has appeared in numerous fragrance ads for the luxury brand. Wearing a basic white tee and sharp blazer, Law poses in a vintage convertible. It’s a simple and sophisticated creative which is perfect for a cologne ad. The shoot took place at the French Riviera. Hard life ;)
His second celebrity endorsement is for Vogue Eyewear. Also set in a vacation setting, the Brit exudes effortless cool showing off sunglasses from the Italian brand. Check out his ads for this company below.
Bello’s March 2013 issue has been out for a couple of weeks now, but since a brand new episode of Grimm airs tonight, I figure why not. Who doesn’t like looking at photos of a sexy scruffy beast like David Giuntoli? It’s one reason why I love watching the NBC supernatural series. Definitely one of my favorite things to do as I lazily lay in bed recuperating from Friday night’s festivities.
Photographed by Aleksandar Tomovic, the 31-year-old actor looks handsome sporting all the hottest looks for Spring in the editorial spread. If you’re wondering if the beard is here to stay, Giuntoli reveals to the publication, that it’s his “hiatus beard.” He adds that he’s probably not going to shave it for two months until Grimm gets back to production for its third season this Fall. Check out a couple of my favorite photos below, along with the entire March 2013 issue.
After months of speculation, H&M made it official today. Beyoncé is the company’s new cover girl, replacing singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey who held that position for about a year. Not only is Bey fronting the ad campaign, but she worked on the new collection as well. H&M head designer Ann-Sofie Johansson revealed, “what makes these pieces even more special is that Beyoncé herself had input in the designs, and they are full of her own personal style.” The new collection is tentatively slated to hit stores in the beginning of May.
“I’ve always liked H&M’s focus on fun affordable fashion. I really loved the concept we collaborated on to explore the different emotions of women represented by the four elements — fire, water, earth and wind. It was a beautiful shoot on a tropical island. It felt more like making a video than a commercial.” – Beyonce
Photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin better known as Inez & Vinoodh shot the print and billboard images in the Bahamas. The Swedish retailer unveiled the first image today with Mrs. Carter wearing the “key pieces you need for life in the sun this summer.” The ads will feature the tagline, “Beyonce as Mrs. Carter in H&M.” Obviously an attempt to tie her latest endorsement deal with her upcoming “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.” The campaign will also include a commercial directed by Jonas Akerlund and will feature a new track from B titled, “Standing On The Sun.” Check out the first image below.
If I didn’t know any better, I swear I was staring at a young Matt Dillon in this 80s-inspired fashion spread. James Franco’s chiseled features are the epitome of classic Hollywood handsomeness. With a clean face and a coiffed ‘do, Franco gives 80s realness for Bullett Media’s Spring issue. The look is a far cry from the cornrows, tatts and grill he sports in Spring Breakers opening wide this weekend.
Photographed by Frederik Heyman, the 34-year-old actor looks at home on the surrealist art deco set. It’s like he popped out of Ruthless People starring Bette Midler or from a Devo music video. In the issue, James talks about Franco the image, Franco the artist and Franco the ego. It’s the “Three Portraits of James Franco” which happens to be the title of the publication’s piece. Check out a few quotes and photos below.
“I don’t know if I ever tried to break away from being considered a heartthrob. I actually think there are times when a role calls for you to look your best.”
Vancouver-based yoga wear giant, Lululemon just can’t seem to catch a break over the past few weeks. Some serious allegations were made by the late Wilfried Knight in his blog posts before he took his own life (may he rest in peace), and now they’ve had to issue a massive yoga pants recall because one of their latest designs turned out to be see-thru. As a result of the recall, the company’s share prices have been falling.
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, they made fun of the fact that women everywhere are facing a crisis that they don’t have expensive spandex-like pants to wear anymore and made a fake ad where people can donate to help get women new yoga pants. Without yoga pants, woman are forced to wear cardboard pants, bubble wrap pants, and yogurt pants because they clearly have no other options. “With your donation of $120 a day, you can put one woman in one pair of yoga pants,” they explain in the ad. Watch the funny clip below.
It’s the collaboration that keeps on giving. Jeremy Scott’s partnership with adidas originals began in 2008. His shoe designs became instant iconic bestsellers for the brand. Once again, the American designer creates eye-popping masterpieces. I totally want the totem pole-inspired high-tops. I just hope they don’t get pulled from stores like last season’s high-tops which came with plastic orange ankle cuffs. Civil right groups claimed they were racist since they resemble shackles- a symbol of slavery.
For the Spring/Summer 2013 collection, Scott looked at Native American imagery for inspiration. Several pieces feature heavily printed images of totem poles and eagles. Not everything has this motif however. Plaid is also very well represented. He mixes and matches prints perfectly for a track jacket and pair of sneakers. Speaking of footwear, Jeremy brings back his popular wings for certain styles. Though I would never wear them, the bear camo high-tops are totes adorable. Check them out and the rest of his outlandish and fun collection featuring ANTM judge and male supermodel Rob Evans.
What would Miranda Priestly say? I’m sure she wouldn’t approve of Stanley Tucci’s high-waisted jeans and wifebeater? Speaking of The Devil Wears Prada, did you know Tucci married co-star Emily Blunt’s sister Felicity last year? I had no idea.
I don’t know what I find more shocking about this vintage Levis commercial from the 80s. The fact that Tucci was once a former male model or that he had hair. For as long as I can remember, the 52-year-old always sported a shiny scalp. He suits it so well. In fact, watching him act all chachi with thinning hair as a leading man is a little odd. To me, he’ll always be the actor who plays memorable supporting roles in the aforementioned Prada flick, The Hunger Games, Maid In Manhattan and the classic Burlesque. LOL. Obviously, I kid with the last one. Check out Tucci’s Levis commercial below.
His last name says it all. I’m pretty sure Kute isn’t pronounced “cute“, but for argument’s sake, let’s say it does. After highlighting a major player (Arthur Kulkov) in the fashion industry last week for my Model Behavior post, I wanted to sex it up this week. Cold showers were invented for people like Adrien Kute. Several glances at his portfolio will definitely heat you up.
I first noticed this French model when he appeared in a swimwear editorial for AXN magazine last year. Since then, Kute popped up in a couple of international gay publications- DNA and Sensitif- both of which were photographed by Simon Le. Most recently, he appeared in Pulse Denver magazine showing off his Baskit while working out. Check out Adrien’s portfolio below. Be forewarned, there are plenty of swimwear and underwear photos. I couldn’t help it because I could only find a handful of photos with him wearing clothes. No Lie.
