Special Additions

Campaigns! More and more campaigns! You know you love them. Gucci gives us their signature sleek glamour with a Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott campaign starring Joan Smalls, Karmen Pedaru and Hailey Clauson, while Jimmy Choo goes for energetic shots of Crystal Renn by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Meanwhile, Chanel keeps true to the house’s history of iconic muses by gathering a set of Lagerfeld favorites like Freja Beha Erichsen, Baptiste Giabiconi, Stella Tennant and Ines de la Fressange.

    Querelle! So gorgeous.
    I really like Gucci too. Karmen so fits Gucci.
    Freja is really cute laughing!

  2. Ixca says:

    season after season Gucci is always the same… colors, looks, posses, more creativity please. I like the coolness of Chanel

  3. Franck says:

    OMG Querelle !! back and looking better than ever.. LOVE

  4. Charlotte says:

    Querelle! So excited to see her return to fashion!
    Also, love the Gucci campaign but does Karmen’s body look…weirdly twisted or something?

  5. Mars says:

    Karl = Master !!!

  6. See Like Me says:

    bow down to querrelle!

  7. carola says:

    Love Freja and Stella for Chanel, great casting. I have to say I’m even loving Baptiste in these.

    Crystal is oficially thin. Not even her legs are what they used to be.

    Gucci = same campaign from last seasons with a slight change of models, loving Karmen, she looks unreal, and of course Joan.

    LOVE whoever cast Querelle in Miu Miu, I’ve been sitting here waiting for her comeback for years.

  8. PeterModelObsessed says:

    I love Chanel.

    A young lass and her aunt, flirts with the sexy gardener.

  9. PeterModelObsessed says:

    Gucci please bring back Natasha Poly. She’s what Gucci ‘s promise is all about. Wealth. youth. beauty.

    I love that Freja Beja, is officially a Chanel muse alongside legendary Stella Tennant and Ines de la Fressange

  10. SAM STEVENS MOORE says:

    AMEN FOR KARMEN P SHE IS SO GORGOUS, GUCCI ALWAYS HAS GOOD ADS. CRYSTAL RENN IS A HOT COW, AND I ACTUALLY LIKE FREJA IN THE CHANEL AD ITS CUTE SHE IS STARTING TO GROW ON ME AGAIN!

  11. itsuki says:

    Joan is everything

  12. Sam W says:

    Well I think it safe to say Renn is officially no longer plus sized, if she’s happy healthy and finally has the career she wants good luck to her. She is an extremely good model.

  13. Marty says:

    Wow ! Miu Miu is so impressvie this year.
    the colletion and ad is so amazing

  14. FDN says:

    Crystal Renn looks great! She’s not the plus size girl that she used to be, but yet..she is not your typical skinny girl. I think the most normal and relatable body to most girls now! It just shows that she’s a great girl as she continues to get bookings despite all these changes.I hope she doesnt become skinnier coz this is perfect.

  15. Nádia says:

    Karmen is looking amazing for Gucci!

  16. truman capote says:

    gucci shuodnt even bother about shooting another ad.. since both clothes n image s just the same for the last 5 season at least…MIUMIU s the best of the season for sure

  17. Podestá says:

    Love Miu Miu!!!!

    And Freja, one more time…kind of tired!

  18. Tyson says:

    Chanel:::LOVE FREJA her smile is contagious it is simply divine to look at
    Gucci:::: Bring back Ms POLY PLEASE! last spring/ summer ad was FAR BETTER it was sexier just having one hot sexy male and a hot female. this cast is all over the place they didn’t even know what to do with Hailey! The boys look like they are 17 there is nothing appealing about a 17 year old boy. not even to a gay man.

  19. Tyson says:

    the AD natasha poly was in? Im not sure if it was last summer or the summer before? it was with another guy that looked older and more sexier

  20. BMD says:

    Gucci reminds me of a Britney Spears perfume ad with more attractive people in it.
    Chanel is the clear winner, amazing- Freja looks so great.
    Mui Mui must be kidding with this awkward and bland thing they’ve presented us with.

  21. kitkat says:

    It’s hard to tell how much Crystal’s size has changed because these photos are quite photoshopped.

    She looks quite small here. She’s not 5’11” so she’s not going to look like the typical skinny models of today. She’s 5’9″ and she looks like a small 5’9″ girl with some curves in these photos–like the 90’s supermodels.

  22. imfunky69 says:

    Too bad Natasha Poly is not doing the Gucci ad campaigns, maybe here contract is done. Hopefully she’ll reprise her comeback next season.

  23. edward says:

    karl = master? come one he is consistently awful in photography freja saves the day but oh he is not a master of photography.

  24. Not on the guest list says:

    The Gucci adds looks always the same it’s like a deja vu and I’m really sorry for Hailey she is a freakin extra in the shoots so why use a rising model?? Why Gucci uses an actress or something, if I was I’ll be really depressed.
    How you guys can know that Ines de la Fressange appears on the campaign, you can’t even recognize her, it could be anyone!!
    I have a question Querelle Jansen is a new face or she did a comeback?? because in some comments it looks like she is back or something and I really don’t like the campaign, if Miuccia is capable of create all these amazing clothes out of her mind, why she couldn’t came out with a nice concept???

  25. Michael says:

    even though they have reused the idea for many many many many times, I still like Gucci’s campaign
    N love love miu miu

  26. GP says:

    I like Gucci but not every season is the saem, become so boring now.
    Jimmy Choo is really fresh with the the colours and Cyrstal is gorgeous but it;s like Nine West.

  27. Sally says:

    Querelle! So amazing as ever!
    Freja looks cute in the Chanel shot.
    Crystal is not working for me in this one.
    Karmen P is werking!

  28. carola says:

    Yeah Karl is no Penn or Avedon but he’s not that bad, he has good ideas. I mean these Chanel ads are much more fun to look at (and I bet they sell more) than those boring Gucci and Versace ads by Meisel or whoever shoots them these days.

  29. anlabe says:

    Not on the guest list,
    This is Querelle’s comeback.
    She was a big model around 2004-5. She appeared in Prada and Miu Miu ads and was a Meisel favorite. She said she quited modelling but now she’s back.

  30. Anastasia Beverhausen says:

    QUERELLE!

  31. Badblood says:

    Gucci’s Ads is so elegant!!
    Nikola Jovanovic is so gorgeous.

  32. Antonio Barros says:

    I love everything about the Gucci campaign.
    And I love the colors of the Miu Miu.

  33. Things I Like says:

    I think Karmen is beautiful and models well in the Gucci ad and Joan Smalls too. Im not really a fan of the others.

    Thanks to http://www.supermodels.nl

    I told you I’m Model obsessed, didn’t I? Lol

  36. PeterModelObsessed says:

    Designers Love her…. Freja Beja is a Master Class on her very own league. She looks like a perfect Classic Vintage Model from the 60’s at the same time has that Cool futuristic look model of year 2020 ha ha ha

    Love you Freja!!!

    Please keep that Beja Mystique that Cool Designers and Hipster loves!!!

  37. DM says:

    Chanel is my fav out of this set… Mui Mui?? its ok i liked Kasia but now im over it

  38. HannaV says:

    love all the campaigns! but my favorites are Jimmy Choo and its energic colors and Chanel with its elegant and fun campaign!

  39. Lu says:

    Am I the only one that notices that Gucci has Joan doing the same exact “tilting of the head to the sky” pose in EVERY SINGLE ad?! Take a look. She’s beautiful and yet, you can’t see her face at all in any of them.

  40. Hannah says:

    I have missed Querella so much! She is such prada/miumiu face! I love the gucci ad but I am missing Natashs, freja or Raquel, they will lways be the gucci trio to me!

  41. JM says:
  42. Oscar says:

    Gucci, sexy, alluring, Karmen Pedaru, it’s an attractive looking ad (except for Ms. Smalls pants, unattractive). I have to say this season’s Chanel ad is one of my favorite of all the Chanel ads. Makes me want to wear Chanel while I’m getting hosed down. Miu Miu is awesome this season, and I agree, although not my style, definitely think the collection is unique and the ad is clean, sharp, rich, and attractive.

  43. Nik says:

    Love the Gucci girls this season. Miss Pedaru is slowly but surely beginning to tread in SUPERmodeldom. And Freja, I think, is maybe the most high fashion model of the moment. (OK Freja haters, go ahead and possible and moan.) Mr. Lagerfeld loves her still, and years of Chanel+Meisel campaigns and editorials with 3 VI covers in less than a year is only a testament to her appeal in fashion. She really is MOST COVETED.

  44. Hamdia says:

    Gucci campaign look AMAZZZINNGG ^_^

  45. David says:

    Chanel is awful. What a joke.

  46. Davide roux says:

    I like how gucci makes there ads look sleek and tight and Chanel Nantes to come up with something new it’s like the leader of the fashions world.
