Friday Fashion Fix – June 2011

A while ago, I used to do a semi-regular Fashion Fix posts which was a quick hit of bitesize pieces of fashion news. I’ve decided to bring it back as a regular feature every Friday. I hope you enjoy it! 

Helena Bonham Carter is the face of Marc Jacobs Autumn/Winter 2011.

I think this pairing is a match made in fashion heaven, the eccentricly dressed two-time Oscar nominee and one of the quirkiest designers on the block. Shot by Juergen Teller, the ads are a little obscure but lots of fun.

Angelina Jolie for Louis Vuitton’s Core Values campaign

Angelina Jolie looks absolutely stunning in this Louis Vuitton campaign and the story behind it is beautiful too. The campaign was shot by Annie Leibovitz in Combodia, a country which Jolie has very close emotional ties. She travelled there for her rold in Tomb Raider and was oberwhelmed by the beautiful landscape and wamth of its people. She returned as a UN Goodwill Ambassador and went on to adopt her son Maddox. She has been awarded Cambodian citizenship by King Norodom Sihamoni for her humanitarian work. Her fee for the campaign was donated to charity.

Lanvin to launch ‘Petite’ collection.

If there was ever a reason to get broody this is it: imagine dressing your little princess in some teeny, tiny Lanvin. Alber Elbaz was inspired by Jeanne Lanvin’s daughter Marguerite and features several Lanvin signatures from jewels and ballet flats to gorgeous tulle dresses. Absolutely beautiful.
