Gigi Hadid is really getting noticed this year, starring in a campaign for Stuart Weitzman launching for autumn 2016.
Shot by Mario Testino, the black-and-white campaign is, like the spring 2016 one, minimalistâ€”but this time, Hadid is not accompanied by fellow models Joan Smalls and Lily Aldridge.
The campaign, according to the company, is meant to channel ‘strength and motion’ and Testino was chosen to give the campaign an editorial feel.
It has been inspired by Hadid’s work-out regimen and shows Hadid boxing and jumping.
The campaign launches in the US, Italy, France, the UK, the UAE, Germany, Spain, and through Asia. Outdoor advertising will run in LA, New York, Milano, Paris and Hong Kong. Additional video will appear at the Stuart Weitzman website and at its boutiques.
Luisa Via Roma, styled LuisaViaRoma, is a familiar sight to the fashion scene: it’s one of the biggest international concept stores in Firenze and its history goes back to 1930.
With Bugatti having extended its brand into lifestyle, using founder Ettore Bugatti’s name for its collection, Luisa Via Roma is an ideal partner for the company. The two announced their collaboration at the Bridge of Love installation on the Arno during Pitti Uomo 90 on Tuesday. The Ettore Bugatti Lifestyle Collection will be available from the Luisa Via Roma physical store in Firenze and its website. A classic Bugatti Type 51 racing car from the 1930s was there at the launch.
Luisa Via Roma will be the first place in Italy which will retail the clothing and accessories’ ranges from the collection, beginning with the autumnâ€“winter 2016â€“17 collection.
The launch of the collaboration, entitled Underwater Love, saw VIPs including Bugatti brand manager Massimiliano Ferrari, Paolo Lao, Petite Meller, Grace Chatto of Clean Bandit, Diego Rizzi, Bugatti marketing and communications’ Elke Palmaers, Bugatti creative director Daniele Andretta, Mauro Bucco, Marlen Lissek, Marco Cartasegna, Filippo Cirulli, Federico Oggioni and Luisa Panconesi, Marco Tolentino, Leonida Ferrarese, and Cecilia Capriotti.

Sonam Kapoor chose a Ralph & Russo column gown with a feathered cape and train for day 6 on the red carpet at the Festival de Cannes, for the premiÃ¨re of Loving. Once again, L’OrÃ©al Paris make-up artists went for a natural look for Kapoor, with the Superstar mascara (in Red Carpet), the Super Liner (in So Couture) and the Cushion Nude Magique foundation in Porcelaine: if you look good in it, why change it? They varied her L’OrÃ©al Paris Color Riche eye-shadow to a Lilas ChÃ©ri shade, while the lipstick was another natural Color Riche shade, no. 231. Her jewellery was from Bulgari Haute Joaillerie, with a necklace comprising 16 diamonds.
Fellow ambassador Xiao Wen Ju (appearing for the French cosmetics’ giant for the first time) wore a cobalt blue Azzedine AlaÃ¯a dress with transparent effects, and excitedly told her 200,000 Instagram followers about the experience; German singer Lena Meyer-Landrut wore Yves Saint Laurent to the premiÃ¨re and showed a lot of thigh; and actress GraÅ¼yna Torbicka wore a stylish gown by Tomasza OssoliÅ„ski. La La Anthony wore a Gauri & Nainika gown with a de Grisogono Melody of Colours ring.

Sometimes, you can find style at the Festival de Cannes away from the red carpet, and ChloÃ« Sevigny looked fashionable with her Chanel black and silver resin bag from its Paris in Rome 2015â€“16 collection. But as usual the real action was on the red carpet where we saw sumptuous gowns and jewellery.
With much anticipation, Sonam Kapoor lit up the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiÃ¨re of Mal de Pierres (From the Land of the Moon, adapted from the novel Mal di Pietre and in competition), when she headed there representing L’OrÃ©al Paris, wearing an asymmetrical white dress by Ralph & Russo, along with L’OrÃ©al Paris make-up that’s very on-trend this season: the Super Liner Smokissime Red Carpet Collection and the Superstar mascara, also in a shade called Red Carpet. Going for a more nude look, Kapoor’s make-up artist went for Cushion Nude Magique foundation in Porcelaine, the Accord ParfaÃ®t blush in Rose Ã‰clat, and the Color Riche eye-shadow in Marron GlacÃ©.
Compatriot Aishwarya Rai, who has been wowing audiences already at Cannes, appeared wearing a light pink Rami Kadi dress, but what got people talking was her bright purple lipstickâ€”which husband Abhishek Bachchan has gone on record to say he loves. She complemented her look with de Grisogono’s High Jewellery pink gold tourmalines and emerald ring.
Araya A. Hargate went for a stunning, black-and-white Jean Paul Gaultier, one of the best red-carpet showcases for the French designer that we have seen. L’OrÃ©al Paris’s make-up artists went with the Superstar Red Carpet mascara again and the same blush, which worked for Hargate’s look, but worked their magic with the Super Liner (in So Couture), Infaillable Powder in Beige Sable for the foundation, and Color Riche L’Ombre Pure (in Snow in MegÃ¨ve) for another natural look. Highlights were provided by L’OrÃ©al Paris’s Color Riche La Palette in red.
Fellow ambassador Li Yuchun appeared in a three-piece Givenchy suit, while Heike Makatsch wore a Kaviar Gauche pink silk jumpsuit. Iris Berben wore a form-fitting, fringed gown by Talbot Runhof, and Miss Fame donned a black dress with tulle, but had toned down her look from the Zac Posen gown the day before.

The L’OrÃ©al Paris “signature faces” were in force on day two of the Festival de Cannes, showing the latest looks from the French firm, and how its make-up has it covered regardless of age. Blogger and singer Kristina Bazan, 22, of Kayture made her Cannes dÃ©but for the brand at the Money Monster premiÃ¨re, a significant move for L’OrÃ©al Paris as it taps into modern media and a digital audience. She wore Elie Saab with Chopard jewellery. Joining her at Money Monster, directed by Jodie Foster and starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts (viewers who watched our live feed would have caught the press conference yesterday) were Naomi Watts, 47 (in Michael Kors accessorized by Giuseppe Zanotti shoes) and Julianne Moore, 55, wearing Louis Vuitton. Eva Longoria had attended the premiÃ¨re of CafÃ© Society wearing Pamela Rolland.
This weekend, Lucire will share more details about how the ladies got their make-up looksâ€”watch this space. There’s more at our embedded live feed till then.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed to Paro Taktshang, Bhutan, on the second day of their royal visit to the kingdom. They had flown in from India on Thursday.
Paro Taktshang, also known as the Tiger’s Nest monastery, is located on a cliff face, 3,000 m above sea level. The royal couple walked 900 m to the revered site, taking three hours to reach the monastery, built in 1692.
The Duchess wore a Jaeger white blouse, Really Wild khaki leather waistcoat, khaki Zara jeans, and her 10-year-old, calf-length Penelope Chilvers boots.
â€˜It was quite tough on the way up,’ noted Prince William. The Duchess said that it was a ‘great way to burn off the curry.’
The Prince’s father, the Prince of Wales, half-completed the hike in 1998.
In the evening, they attended a reception for British nationals and people with close ties to the UK that evening. The Duchess wore a red gown with a poppy print by Beulah, from its springâ€“summer 2015 collection. The poppy is Bhutan’s national symbol.
