She's back! Reprising her role in Mango's Winter 2013 campaign, Miranda Kerr appears in images and video shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin atop the New York City skyline. Joined in this season's catalog by Bette Franke and Julia Stegner, the model's solo shots are certainly a sight to see — click through to peruse them all (bonus: see Miranda at work in the video)!
The short film and ad images for Louis Vuitton's new travel-themed campaign have finally made their way online. Arizona Muse stars in the Inez and Vinoodh-shot images, which carry Vuitton's Art of Travel concept to print, digital, and film.
In the film — titled L'invitation au Voyage, or Invitation to Travel — Muse is seen walking through the Louvre with a golden key and Vuitton's Speedy Monogram Empreinte bag. After passing by the Mona Lisa and halls filled with priceless Italian art, Muse finds a vintage Vuitton trunk and unlocks it to reveal an envelope. When she realizes there's a man following her through the museum, she runs through its courtyard and jumps into a hot air balloon, taking whatever secrets the envelope contains along with her.
A look at Muse's short film below, and images from the campaign here in the gallery.
In the two-minute clip, directed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Kloss walks up the beach to LL Cool J's song "Going Back to Cali," leaving a string of bruised and battered surfers, police officers, and at least one life guard in her wake. The video — Juicy Couture's first fashion film — celebrates the brand's partnership with the Step Up Network, an organization that helps empower young women in under-resourced communities. The brand will donate $1 to the group for every tweet it receives containing the hashtag #girlskickass.
See Kloss doing just that in the video below.
H&M has released additional images from its Fall 2012 ad campaign, featuring Lana Del Rey photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. The brand released two teaser images of the singer wearing a pink sweater in mid July, and the new ads see Del Rey attired in more of the brand's seasonal offerings.
The ads will be accompanied by a music video for Del Rey's cover of "Blue Velvet," directed by Johan Renck, which will debut on Sept. 19. Edited versions of the music video will be used as television commercials.
"Lana is totally unique, and we wanted to create a print and film campaign that's just as special," said H&M creative director Donald Schneider. "The mood is very LA noir and is inspired by our Fall collection, which also fits with Lana's own personal style."
Del Rey will also appear in a second set of ads shot by Solve Sundsbo that will feature H&M's Winter clothing. Those ads are expected to be released later in the year. For now, a glimpse of H&M's Fall campaign in the gallery.

>> Anna Dello Russo both styled and appears in the new campaign for Macy's private label brand INC — alongside Karolina Kurkova. But as the contemporary label's editor-at-large, Dello Russo's involvement doesn't end there: she "edited" a capsule collection of ready-to-wear and accessories for Macy's INC — including red and yellow cropped peacoats, color-blocked tunics, a cropped red fur chubby, all of which can be seen in the ads.
"I’ve edited so many things in my life, the mass market is another challenge for me,” said Dello Russo of the line, which is priced $30 to $139. “I wanted to see if I could push forward in a new way and Macy’s for me represents the biggest of American shopping institutions.”
>> W's new fashion and style editor Edward Enninful won't make his full debut for the magazine until September, but his stamp can already be seen on the magazine's July 2011 cover featuring Christina Aguilera, he says: "I was involved with Christina. I worked with our contributing editor Giovanna Battaglia on the look and the photography and also Lynn Hirschberg. And I wanted to show Christina in a new light, show off the icon that she is."
As for his future plans for the magazine: "We'll continue to work with photographers like Craig McDean, Patrick Demarchelier, Mario Sorrenti, Inez and Vinoodh, Mert and Marcus, but we also have a few big names in the pipeline and you'll see it in the coming months, particularly in September ... The September issue will be first big issue for myself, along with Alex Gonzalez, the creative director, and sort of Giovanna Battaglia, whom we offered to be fashion editor and hopefully a few other editors. And we're going to feature the industry's biggest names and well-known photographers. I think you'll be pleased. And what I love about this sort of blend of photographers is that each one has their own unique style. So if it's okay I'd like to keep their names under wrap just to surprise our readers. It's really hard to keep anything secret these days. But I try."
>> The latest Fall 2011 campaign scuttlebutt: Isabeli Fontana is taking the early lead, with campaigns for Escada and Donna Karan booked, and a rumored appearance for Bottega Veneta as well. Karan's campaign, which was captured by Patrick Demarchelier the past three seasons, was snapped by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for Fall 2011.
Meanwhile, Steven Meisel shot (and Karl Templer styled) the Fall 2011 Louis Vuitton campaign in New York yesterday — but there will reportedly be no Kate Moss appearance as there was on the runway. In fact, no supermodels will be featured at all: Instead, the six models chosen are said to be from the current generation — "Top 50-ish, a bit new. Nothing from the Icon list." Daphne Groeneveld and Fei Fei Sun are rumored to be among them.
Versace, like Donna Karan, is also switching up photographers — after going with Mario Testino for the past eight seasons, Donatella Versace has chosen Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to do the Fall 2011 honors (with styling by Joe McKenna). Originally, the Versace campaign, like Vuitton, was reportedly supposed to feature six models, including Candice Swanepoel and Groeneveld, but the photographers are rumored to have settled instead on one girl with "short dark hair" who is a "cover star." Some are thinking that might indicate Saskia de Brauw as Versace's new girl.
To round out the Fall 2011 campaign placements so far, Juergen Teller shot Irina Kulikova yesterday for Moschino at Turin's Ristorante del Cambio, Ralph Lauren has reportedly cast its runway opener Sui He, and Liu Wen is rumored to be in the upcoming Dolce & Gabbana campaign.

Watch Inez and Vinoodh's "Girls on Film" Video for Vogue Paris, Featuring Anja Rubik, Natasha Poly, and Isabeli Fontana
>> Vogue Paris had Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin produced a stylized behind-the-scenes video of their October 2010 "The Party" editorial to celebrate the magazine's 90th anniversary and its newly-launched iPad application. Although the Emmanuelle Alt-styled editorial ran last October, the video — which features Isabeli Fontana, Natasha Poly, and Anja Rubik vamping to the Duran Duran song "Girls on Film" — just got uploaded to YouTube a couple of days ago, a fact van Lamsweerde pointed out on Twitter: "Did any of you ever see this video we did in 2010? Count the fashion shoot clichés!more to come.kisses Inez ."
>> Carine Roitfeld isn't totally letting go of her French roots, despite teaming up with Barneys stateside for a multifaceted Fall 2010 initiative; she also styled Chanel's Fall 2011 campaign, which Karl Lagerfeld just shot in Paris. Featured is perennial Chanel face Freja Beha Erichsen — Fall 2011 marks her fifth consecutive campaign for the house but her first solo. “The mix with Freja was genius,” Lagerfeld promises.
Lagerfeld is also repeating a face at Fendi— he's shooting Anja Rubik for her fourth straight campaign next week (“I like to work with the same girls and boys all the time,” he quips.). As is Michael Kors, who tapped Karmen Pedaru for the second time in a row, posting a picture from the Fall 2011 campaign shoot yesterday on his official Facebook. Over at Yves Saint Laurent, meanwhile, the supporting team is the same — Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin behind the lens and Joe McKenna styling — but Raquel Zimmerman is reportedly the Fall 2011 subject, replacing Spring 2011's Arizona Muse.
But back to Lagerfeld: in preparation of the upcoming Chanel Cruise 2012 fashion show in Antibes on May 9, he's gathering Erichsen, Lady Amanda Harlech, Anna Mouglalis, and Kristen McMenamy to star in his annual Chanel Cruise short film. This one, he's shooting in Monaco and the South of France.
