Having cast a 47-year-old Elle Macpherson (along with the womanly bodies of Laetitia Casta and Bar Refaeli) to fill out the curvy dress silhouettes on the fall Louis Vuitton runway, Marc Jacobs continues to offer a multigenerational theme for his advertising images—selecting Christy Turlington, Karen Elson, and Natalia Vodianova to share campaign duties. Steven Meisel shot all three models in a New York studio made to look like a Hollywood star's old-fashioned dressing room. Turlington, Elson, and Vodianova look perfectly put together dressed in Jacobs's "And God Created Woman" collection of corseted waists and circle skirts with their hair in the same fresh-looking, '50s-style high ponytails from the Vuitton runway. Perhaps reason enough to agree with Vogue's mandate to return to mature, ladylike clothing this fall.
>> In a follow up to his voluptuous Fall 2010 runway cast, Marc Jacobs selected Christy Turlington, Natalia Vodianova, and Karen Elson — coincidentally, none of whom walked in the collection's show — for the accompanying campaign. "This season we are working with three of the most beautiful women, I think, in the world," he says in the making-of video. "[A] Blonde, brunette, and a redhead." They also span one model in her 20s, one in her 30s, and one in her 40s. This marks the fourth Vuitton campaign captured by Steven Meisel, who constructed the '50s set in a Manhattan studio space.
>> Anna Dello Russo Spotted at W Offices —After rumors hit earlier this week that Anna Dello Russo was in talks with Stefano Tonchi to join the W staff as fashion director, she was spotted at the magazine's offices. Dello Russo is currently based in Milan, and she could have just been paying her close friend Tonchi a visit, or maybe they are speaking about that fashion director role? Or perhaps a contributing position at the mgazine? [DFR]
