Luxury Swiss watchmaker TAG HEUER has tapped fashion model Cara Delevingne as its new feminine ambassador.
The surprise choice of Delevingne as Tag Heuer’s new brand ambassador breaks with its recent tradition of working with celebrities from the film and sports worlds, such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, Lewis Hamilton, Cristiano Ronaldo and Maria Sharapova.
Tag Heuer, which recently revived its tag line “Don’t Crack Under Pressure,” is targeting a younger customer with Delevingne, who comes with a huge media profile and social media presence.
For the campaign, TAG Heuer went with photos of the model you may have already seen: The first is her at The Great Gatsby premiere during Cannes in 2013, the other is an image of Cara making one of her signature goofy faces, showing off the lion tattoo on her index finger.
“We needed someone disruptive yet elegant like Cara to open our minds to the brashness and boldness of today’s youth,” said Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of TAG Heuer and President of LVMH Watches Worldwide.
After several campaigns fronted by Cara Delevingne, who even designed her own handbag for Mulberry, the brand has brought in another world-renowned model: Georgia May Jagger.
In the S/S 2015 campaign, the daughter of Mick Jagger poses for Inez & Vinoodh, the duo behind a number of previous Mulberry campaigns.
The focus is primarily on the Delphie, Mini Lily and Bayswater bags, as well as the much-hyped items designed by Cara Delevingne.
Despite her rather discreet presence on social networks, Georgia May Jagger is in high demand among fashion and beauty brands.
She was enlisted to model in campaigns for Sonia Rykiel, Just Cavalli, Minelli and Thomas Sabo.

Stuart Vevers picked legendary photographer Steven Meisel for a second season running to capture his womenswear collection at Coach, with a new Americana-themed campaign for Spring/Summer 2015.
Steven Meisel shot some of the hottest next-generation stars: Binx Walton, Valery Kaufman, Grace Hartzel, Molly Blair, Dylan Xue, Helge Vondereau, and Julia Bergshoeff, with the modelling talents dotted across suburban American landscapes inspired by some of the country’s best cinema.
“Watching films like ‘True Romance’, ‘Paris, Texas’, and David Lynch’s ‘Lost Highway’, we were thinking about how atmospheric certain movies can be. Everyday scenarios can be transformed by cinematic beauty,” explained Vevers. “Steven created images that crystallised that vision, with his elevated, artful take on hyper normality.”
For the final ads, the shots of the girls were then layered over the top of a dusky New York City skyline.
Fabien Baron art-directed the campaign which launches globally in February and the images were styled by Karl Templer with makeup and hair by the veritable dream team of Pat McGrath and Guido Palau.

British creative director Brendan Mullane has unveiled Italian brand BRIONI‘s latest campaign, shot by art-house photographer Collier Schorr.
The brand’s latest advertising shows off the Spring/Summer 2015 tailoring and casualwear against a dramatic Los Angeles backdrop.
The “private, intimate and sensual” moments were photographed at the minimalist boulder house of Eric Lloyd Wright, a building still undergoing construction, and based on designs by the owner’s famed architect/designer grandfather, Frank Lloyd Wright.
Razor-cheeked model Dominik Bauer is the star of the images, wearing different suiting options as well as some more casual pieces.
“The idea was to show a day-in-the-life of the Brioni man, who loosens up after a day of work and shows his more relaxed yet sensual side against a natural backdrop that brings out the clothes,” explained Mullane.
The ad campaign will debut in publications and online in the second half of January.

TOM FORD has enlisted fashion photographers Inez & Vinoodh to capture their Spring Summer 2015 advertising campaign.
The face of the new collection, Dutch supermodel Daphne Groeneveld, posed for the two photographers in retro, glam rock-inspired looks.
Groeneveld’s svelte figure is perfect for showing off the dramatic bell bottoms from the new line, in black or multicolored iridescent shimmer.
Rebellious rock star hairstyles and dark eye makeup complete the 70s-inspired look. In charge of styling was Carine Roitfeld with hair by Sam McKnight and makeup by Charlotte Tilbury.
Inez & Vinoodh also shot the latest campaigns for Emilio Pucci, Anthony Vaccarello, Isabel Marant, Chloé and Jason Wu.

“Miranda Kerr is the perfect muse for this campaign. She exemplifies versatility, both in her way of life and in her style. A style icon, she always looks great, be it during casual and off-duty moments or on the catwalk,” said Swarovski creative director Nathalie Colin.
The campaign will debut ahead of Valentine’s Day, starting on February 4 in men’s and women’s magazines and from February 4 to 13 on TV.

“Charlotte Casiraghi wonderfully embodies the contemporary Bohème woman: independent, sophisticated, inspired, talented and pioneering with an uncompromising commitment to everything she undertakes.”
“Her beauty, charm and charisma are paired with her fascinating personality,” stated Jérôme Lambert, CEO of Montblanc.
Known for her natural beauty, the royal figure and equestrian champion has previously posed in multiple campaigns for Gucci.
The Chanel-owned knitwear label Barrie’s colorful new Spring/Summer 2015 campaign stars actress Lily Collins, who was shot by Karl Lagerfeld.
Lily is captured in the brand’s knitwear against solid color backdrops, sitting and resting on the crinkled paper set.
The 25-year-old actress is best known for her roles in 2009’s “The Blind Side”, her breakthrough role, and her 2012 appearance alongside Julia Roberts in “Mirror Mirror”.
First founded within the Scottish borders in 1903, knitwear specialist Barrie was snapped up by Chanel who has since launched ready-to-wear lines and opened both London and Paris stores for the label.
STELLA MCCARTNEY hired her old muse Natalia Vodianova for her latest campaign, which was shot by the seaside.
Shot in Ibiza, by photographer Harley Weir, the newly-released ad features two striking images of 32-year-old Natalia.
The first features an up-close shot of the model clutching a collection of Stella’s popular Falabella bags and the second sees her posing in front of a dusky seaside skyline.
The Russian supermodel has been a perennial feature in the London-based designer’s runway shows and campaigns over more than a decade.
She last appeared in the Spring/Summer 2013 advertising for the brand which was photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
First emerging at the end of the last decade, Harley Weir is a fast-rising star in the world of fashion editorials and campaigns, having shot multiple times for British Vogue, Pop, and Another Magazine last year.

Shot by American photographer Steven Klein, the campaign also features Ondria Hardin, who has also posed for Jimmy Choo in the past.
Givenchy has uploaded the director’s cut of its Spring-Summer 2015 campaign film, a video overflowing with sensuality and sexual tension.
The campaign film was produced under the creative direction of Riccardo Tisci and shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott.
Like the visuals revealed last December, the video was shot in a forest that calls to mind the Bois de Boulogne in Paris, a park that becomes a hotspot of illicit sexual encounters after sundown.
While the stills showcased the pieces from the collection in broad daylight, the new video was shot after dark, when things are starting to heat up.
Beams of light catch the models in sensual embraces, revealing flashes of leather boots, corset-style tops and naked torsos.
This latest Givenchy campaign features the models Mica Arganaraz, Imaan Hammam and Alessio Pozzi. Notably, the most famousface of the latest collection, Julia Roberts, does not appear in the sultry campaign video.
Christian Dior has revealed the campaign film for the DIOR HOMME S/S 2015 collection, directed by Belgian photographer Willy Vanderperre.
The line, by Dior Homme creative director Kris Van Assche, is presented in a series of close-ups, turning the spotlight on textures and prints.
With this latest collection, the stylist plays with contrasts and similarities through pieces that waver between tradition and modernity, or between an urban spirit and a nautical theme.
Tuxedoes in dark shades are seen alongside lemon yellow slickers, red canvas parkas and striped tanks.
Stripes are a recurring theme throughout the line, whether wide or narrow, in neat lines or in motifs resembling pen strokes.
The Dior Homme runway show will take place on January 24 as part of Paris men’s fashion week, where the F/W 2015-2016 collection will debut.
Eva Herzigová has renewed her partnership with the French luxury brand as the face of Dior Capture Totale Serum, a new anti-aging serum.

After fronting the campaign for the original product, Eva Herzigová returns to embody Capture Total Serum in a campaign shot by French fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier.
Naturally, the images turn the spotlight on the perfect complexion of the 41-year-old model, who has been a Dior spokesmodel since late 2012.
The Capture Totale line now includes several age-defying products, including Dreamskin, Multi-Perfection Makeup Base, Multi-Perfection Eye Treatment and the new Serum.

Italian design house VERSACE called upon Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott to capture the essence of its latest menswear collection.
Shot in New York, this ultra-masculine advertising campaign highlights some of the most representative pieces from the Versace Spring-Summer 2015 menswear line.
Pink suits, fishnet fabrics and muscles galore set a flashy tone, along with Versace’s signature Greek key and Medusa head motifs.
The campaign features two Slovaks – newcomer Miroslav Cech and former hockey player Filip Hrivnak – and one Italian: Alessio Pozzi.
While these young men are still relative unknowns, the Italian design house more than made up for this by recruiting a mega-celebrity for the corresponding women’s wear campaign, which stars Madonna.
After her surprise appearance on the PRADA runway in September, Gemma Ward has landed a spot in the Italian fashion house’s latest campaign.
The Australian model, who had previously been on a six-year hiatus, stars in the black and white spring 2015 campaign, shot by Steven Meisel.
Control and relaxation were the two opposites played out in the new Prada images. Australian model Gemma Ward is one of the faces, alongside countrywoman Julia Nobis and rising Belgian star Ine Neefs, each one of them shot in a different mood against a pastel graffiti backdrop.
The black and white and color works show off the Spring/Summer 2015 collection’s different materials, from an 1800s-style antique brocade through to the finishes of the 1960s, while the season’s bags are both clutched onto protectively and thrown carelessly on the bed.
The campaign comes a decade after Ward’s first campaign for the luxury label, when she was aged just 17 in 2004.
The 27-year-old, who was one of the last decade’s most bankable faces, also chose Prada for her runway return, opening the Milanese brand’s show in the Italian fashion capital last September.
