Versace kicks off Fall 2012 campaign season early with a moody black-and-white spread photographed by famed fashion image-makers Mert & Marcus. Starring Dutch newbie Elza Luijendijk — her debut season was just this past Fall 2012 — the five-page outing was styled by Joe McKenna and David Bradshaw, and also features male models Philipp Schmidt, Dmitriy Tanner, and Kaccey Carrig. "I'm really thrilled with our new campaign," Donatella Versace said. "The result is bold, strong, iconic and perfectly conveys the sexy rock vibe of our Fall/Winter collection."

First Megan Fox for Emporio Armani underwear and now Elisabetta Canalis for Roberto Cavalli. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot photographed the Italian television host, model, and girlfriend to George Clooney wearing animal print satin and black lace lingerie under a robe trimmed with marabou feathers in London last November. In the photographs, Canalis lounges on a Louis XVI-style sofa in a nineteenth century-esque boudoir as the new face of Roberto Cavalli underwear.

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott have photographed their second campaign for Riccardo Tisci's Givenchy, featuring a raven-tressed Natalia Vodianova and Tisci favorite Mariacarla Boscono dressed in spring's graphic black and white prints.
The collection has been getting a lot of editorial attention and, as WWD notes, the label was recently named second (to Alexander Wang) hottest international brand in a survey by Japanese fashion newspaper Senken-Shimbun. Paired with the recent successful launch of his lower-priced Capsule colletion, Tisci is on a roll at the house of Givenchy.
