>> In March, it was reported that Carine Roitfeld would serve as muse, stylist, and guest editor for the Barneys New York Fall 2011 ad campaign — and now images have surfaced showing that Roitfeld will star in them as well. Entitled "Carine's World", the Mario Sorrenti-shot campaign features the former French Vogue editor looking très chic in a black Rick Owens leather-skirt-and-sweater ensemble. But Carine's not the only Roitfeld to be featured in the new campaign; daughter Julia Restoin-Roitfeld poses in a sheer Givenchy number, while son Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld makes an appearance in his own clothing. Other famous faces to appear in the collaboration — out this September — reportedly include Natasha Poly, Victoire de Castellane, Dasha Zhukova, Noami Campbell, and Marie Amelie Suave.

>> Prabal Gurung's moodily undone Fall 2011 collection was inspired by two darkly-romantic characters — John Singer Sargent’s A Parisian Beggar Girl and Miss Havisham of Great Expectations — so it's no wonder that these recently-released images capture that same feeling of tragic loveliness. Featuring a windswept Julia Saner, and photographed by Daniel Jackson, these images won't ever see the light of print, but instead are meant to serve as a well-timed, online-only reminder. "We wanted a way to re-excite our customers and the digital arena while the collection was hitting floors. Collections are sent down the runway and by the time they are available for purchase people tend to forget how a dress moved or why a particular silhouette spoke to them a few months back," explained the designer. Click through to see all six gorgeous images from the digital campaign, including one never-before-seen Fashionologie exclusive.
