Jill Stuart Spring/Summer 2008 Ad Campaign

Jill Stuart spring/summer 2008 ad campaign features a red-headed siren - model Irina Kulikova - laying in the middle of what seems to be the remains of a ship wreck. This should sound like a dramatic image but those candy colors, the sheer organza layers, Irina's not so innocent look give these prints a puckish feeling.

The Lesson

"The Lesson", a photo shoot featuring in this month's issue of Elle Romania, focuses on a post-modern Lolita look, inspired by one very well known absurd play. The February 2008 issue of Elle Magazine (Romanian edition) features a lovely fashion note inspired by Eugene Ionesco' s notorious absurd play "The Lesson". The ‘post-modern Lolita' look is easily built up with this season's key fashion accessories such as those superb platform suede shoes from Kenzo.

Givenchy Spring/Summer 2008 Ad Campaign

The spring 2008 ad campaign for Givenchy ready-to-wear line uses a baroque setting, lots of mirrors and the cliché duo of a blonde and a brunette. Riccardo Tisci's pal, Mariacarla Boscono, and it-model of the moment, Lara Stone, sport the spring/summer 2008 rtw collection's highlights: the knee-high gladiator sandals, metallic eyelet inserts adorning leather jackets and chiffon tops and the quirky bubble dress with oversize polka dot print.

Dolce&Gabbana Spring/Summer 2008 Ad Campaign

I absolutely adore Dolce&Gabbana's spring/summer 2008 ad campaign. The Italian design duo took further the season's arty inspiration and imagined a painter's loft and three beautiful muses that never cease to taunt him. Their smoldering eyes and lush, berry-stained lips electrify the bohemian space.

Gucci Spring/Summer 2008 Ad Campaign

The latest ad campaign for Gucci features a smiling Natasha Poly and a cheeky landscape. Models: Natasha Poly and Mat Gordon. Photographer: Ines van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

I can't make up my mind about the spring 2008 ad campaign from Gucci. In some way I think this is quite genius but a part of me cries ‘this is so wrong'. Maybe this was its purpose - to raise eyebrows, to intrigue... I know that fashion should break barriers but the image of the beautiful Natasha leaning against a horse statue's buttocks just troubles me.
