Jennifer Lawrence's Miss Dior ad campaign was just released by Dior, and it's safe to say the results are nothing short of breathtaking. Shot by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo, the Oscar-nominated actress is pictured wearing a sleek array of pieces — netted veils, chic black-and-white suit sets, and gorgeous gowns — from the label's Spring collection designed by Raf Simons. While it might be hard to peel your eyes away from Lawrence, the new Miss Dior collection is just as captivating, showcasing the brand's classic quilted leather bags swathed in refreshing lemon yellow, cobalt blue, and blush pink hues.

Maiyet dispatched Daria Werbowy and photographer Cass Bird to India for its Spring 2013 campaign — the fourth season in a row that Werbowy has posed for the brand.
Once in India — where Maiyet sources some of its artisanal wares — Bird photographed the model sailing along the Ganges River, dancing in Jaipur's Amber Fort, and biking through the backstreets of Varanasi.
The clothes in the ads will be available for purchase on Maiyet's website starting on Wednesday. Get a look at the pieces here in the gallery.

Miu Miu brings its Spring 2013 campaign to life with a series of videos, each of which stars a different model. Martha Hunt, Arizona Muse, Tamara Weijenberg, Malgosia Bela, Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima, and Bette Franke each take turns capturing the brooding, mischievous, and almost sinister undertones of Miu Miu's print campaign — and each leave the viewer wondering if perhaps there isn't something more to the brand's Spring 2013 collection than just the gorgeous clothing. A look at each of the spooky shorts below.

Zara just released its February TRF lookbook, filled with covetable Spring pieces we'd like to wear, well, now. Yes, there might still be snow on the streets, but there's no harm in stocking up for the warmer weather (and Summer concert season) ahead. That said, feast your eyes on the Spanish retailer's slick array of embroidered jackets, crystal-embellished tops, and enough denim to last you all season long. The latter highlighted some irresistibly cool nomad and dot-print patterns on an array of bleached jeans. Meanwhile, there are enough cutoff shorts to take you to Coachella, Central Park's Concert Series, and beyond. See our top three picks below, then click on to see the complete lookbook.
- We'd like to pair this silky embroidered sweatshirt with a pencil skirt and heels for a fun twist on office dressing.
- How gorgeous is the floral detailing on this quilted moto jacket? It's the perfect Spring statement piece.
- This beaded military vest was made for Coachella. Channel the Kate Moss effect and pair it with cutoffs, a tank, and moto boots.
Turns out those flowers in Prada's Spring 2013 collection weren't just for decoration. The narrative of the brand's newest campaign video treats the blooms like beautiful, powerful women that shouldn't be messed with.
The short film, called Ten Women, stars a full bouquet of models including Eva Herzigova, Irene Hiemstra, Irina Kravchenko, Kirsten Owen, Maartje Verhoef, Raquel Zimmermann, Sasha Pivovarova, Saskia de Brauw, Sung Hee Kim, and Vanessa Axente. Each of the women poses languidly for the camera while a voice-over describes attributes of some of the flowers. "Tiger lily," it says as Kravchenko stares directly into the camera. "Handle with care."
Steven Meisel directed the video, which is set to musician Moondog's "Stamping Ground." The song's militant drum line ads a quickening sense of purpose to a video that's feminist, unsettling, and beautiful to look at all at once.
If Kendall Conrad's eponymous accessories line makes a strong case for seaside living, it's really no wonder. As the California native and current Santa Barbara resident puts it, "the beach is a part of my DNA."
It's a DNA that comes across quite nicely in the designer's Spring 2013 collection of handbags, small leather goods, brass jewelry, and flat sandals. In a sun-bleached palette of seagrass, sand, mussel shell, driftwood, bone, cypress bark, and aloe, and with style names like Narcisa, Azucena, and Cincha, these pieces just can't help but evoke the salt-and-sand spirit of the beach.
But that's not to say these pieces are wild by any means. Nope, their real appeal is their simplicity, and it's a refined sort of elegance that Conrad has worked hard to achieve. "I would never make anything that I did not want to wear myself. I design what I want to wear in my own life. The accessories I am drawn to have clean lines, no logos, and usually come in a natural color palette," she explains. "My handbags are unfussy and need to be functional because I love beautiful things but I am pragmatist at heart. I don’t believe the two need to be mutually exclusive."

Leather and Spring aren't the most obvious pairing, but leave it to this crew of designers — who featured copious amounts of leather on their Spring runways — to make it the new It couple. From Marni's colorful structured tops and skirts to Fendi's sleek colorblocked pants, we can't help but be intrigued. While a part of us can't seem to fathom the thought of sweating it out for the sake of fashion (65-degree weather plus a leather dress does not sound appealing), there's another side of us is falling hard for all the pretty purple, green, and taupe-hued offerings. Now, we want to hear from you. Are you willing to sacrifice a little function for fashion's sake, or is this Spring leather trend just plain ridiculous?

It all checks out — Louis Vuitton's mod, checkered pattern is everywhere for Spring and Summer. Kristen Stewart, Jessica Alba, and Miranda Kerr are just a few of the stars who have slipped into the designer's checker-print pieces for the red carpet. Whether it's a full checked dress or a printed shoe or bag, each is making a compelling case to get in on the trend. Just watch today's Fashion Flash for all the details. On Allison McNamara: Armani Exchange dress, Stella and Bow necklace.
A first glimpse of Zimmermann's Spring '13 lineup is almost enough to make us ditch our Winter coats and reach for one of the collection's breezy printed dresses — almost. Since the temperatures won't allow for that kind of wardrobe changeup, we'll live vicariously through the label's new In Concert collection lookbook (and hope for an early Spring). Thanks to designer Nicky Zimmermann's eye for beautiful prints, feminine cuts, and soft leather, we have a lot to look forward to. In fact, the mix of tomboy and boho — right down to the easy styling, finished with ankle boots and floppy hats — is the kind of carefree, cool-girl glamour you might employ on the concert circuit in just a few short months (Coachella, anyone?). Though some of it might be just as well suited to your dressier events, like a polished shorts suit, floral sheaths, or even this sheer little number if you're looking to channel Lea Michele's sexy red-carpet appearance. Flip through every awesome look right here — then get ready to shop when the collection debuts Feb. 4.
The runways of Paris offered some of the kookiest shoes of the season: there were clunky, fur-lined sandals at Céline, impossibly slender mini pumps at Louis Vuitton, metallic sphere-heeled slingbacks at Dries Van Noten, and sculpted lucite wedges at Alexander McQueen — just to name a few. Of course, there were also plenty of highly wearable options as well; the metallic sandals with wood heels at Chloé and pointy loafer wedges at Hermés were particularly chic. All the noteworthy options from the runways, right here.
