Modern Day Marilyn

Numero uno on my girl crush list, aren't these photos of Michelle Williams in the new Louis Vuitton ad campaign stunning? She looks like a brooding, gothic Marilyn Monroe for AW '13/14.

This is William's first foray into fashion endorsement, if you bypass a quick stint as brand ambassador for Band of Outsiders.

While always stunning this is one of the only Louis Vuitton campaigns I've fallen head over heels for (bar L'invatation au Voyage). I think its the simplicity of the images shot by Peter Lindbergh. They suit Williams modern-sirenesque features and the new bag Capucines and W tote make the brand accessible to a new minimal modern generation less concerned with overt branding.

Visit Louis Vuitton for all the stunning colour options, the campaign launches internationally across September Issues.

Marant's World

Just a little note to express my delight at seeing the first sneak peek twitter snaps of Isabel Marant wearing dress and boots from her forthcoming collaboration with H&M!

Set to launch fall this year, this is perhaps the most eagerly anticipated collection in the H&M history, running on the success from the most recent release with fellow Parisian design house Maison Martin Margiela.

With the existing mainline, and diffusion E'toile spawning multiple fashion must-haves and cult products, suede high top wedge sneakers anyone? Or embellished print jackets for easy going trans-seasonal chic, my hopes for the high street include super skinny jeans, cowboy boots, textured leather and printed chiffon blouses. J'taime!

Isabel Marant for H&M launches November 14th in selected H&M stores and online only.
