Givenchy's Fall Ad Campaign... ROARING

Givenchy’s fall campaign by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott

: Riccardo Tisci’s fall collections for Givenchy — which featured snarling Rottweiler prints for him, panthers for her — inspired a campaign with equal ferocity. Naomi Campbell and Natalia Vodianova are among models who posed on printed cushions — one at a time, not in a gang as Tisci usually prefers — and roared for the lens of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Tisci described the women’s spots as “dark 1950s pinups,” while the men’s campaign has a touch of “Jerry Lewis combined with American sportswear.” The media buy is described as on par with last season, with the images breaking in select September fashion titles

Model Potential the scouting app

 David Gandy and Agyness Deyn - has collaborated on the launch of the world's first ever model scouting app. Model Potential allows users to take a picture of their face; upload their vital statistics, hair and eye colour, age and height; and within minutes your image will be in front of the bookers of one of the UK's top agencies.
This is pretty cool if you ask me and even if you don't want a career as a model (but come on! if you have the potenzial but maybe you're too shy.. than this a perfect chance right?!) the app will scan your picture and using complex algorithms and mathematics coupled with exclusive "golden ratio" software - will analyse your face to determine how beautiful you are.
here the app to download http://www.themodelpotential.com/

PRINCESS DIANA DRESS AUCTION

An extraordinary collection of Princess Diana’s frocks, which are just clothing ensembles, but historical monuments, can now be yours thanks to the Princess Diana dress auction. The 14 dresses up for auction belong to Maureen Rorech Dunkel, who purchased them at an auction just weeks before Di’s fatal car crash in Paris. Today and tomorrow, Waddington’s Auction House in Canada will host the highly anticipated sale of fourteen of the dresses which include blue Victor Edelstein velvet dress worn while dancing with John Travolta, and two dresses from the princess’s favorite, Catherine Walker, which she famously sported in Vanity Fair. The dresses are expected to go for anywhere between $175,000 to $550,000.
