New Ad-Ventures

January 15th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

With every new campaign comes another intriguing take on how to represent what is fashionable. With three new campaigns knocking on our door we are treated to three very different depictions. The look of Kenzo is otherworldly and bohemian, Mario Sorrenti shoots as Guinevere Van Seenus and Magdalena Frackowiak, take center stage in the woodsy ads with a decidedly trippy feel.

Les Copains is all about slick polished glamour. Kate Somers is transformed from delicate ingenue to full on glamour girl in the sleek, slick ads – proving once and for all that within every coquette lurks a true diva.

Humor is in fashion for Giuseppe Zanotti, Anja Rubik wears the line’s legendary stilettos as she toys with sundaes, ice cream cones and milkshakes. When you’re one of the world’s most coveted faces, being shot by Inez & Vinoodh, life is sweet indeed.

Life got you down? Dazed and Confused counters the current crisis with a strong dose of fashion optimism – their wild and cheery December issue is dedicated to fresh talent. Shot by Daniel Sannwald the artistically inclined cover features two of the seasons most delightful faces – FW08 Top 10 Newcomer Kate Somers and Nathan Sutherland. This is not the first time the charming duo has worked together – they also shared a catwalk at Marc by Marc Jacobs.

Fresh from her spot atop MDC’s own Top 10 Newcomers list Ford Model’s Kate Somers graces the pages of this month’s Teen Vogue. Shot by Horst Diekgerdes and styled by Beth Fenton, the shoot showcases the leggy Canadian in the latest preppy collegiate chic.

With a whirlwind F/W season behind her and a slew of editorials to come we can’t help but be reminded of that other Ford Supermodel of the Year runner up whose career hit the stratosphere after appearing in Teen Vogue – so much for second place.
