>> Monika "Jac" Jagaciak has plenty of buzz surrounding her, and scoring the Spring 2010 women’s Calvin Klein Collection campaign again — which she reteamed with David Sims in Carmel, California, for — isn't hurting. As Models.com noted, "Jac is the only girl since Natalia Vodianova to book CK two times in a row. Could Ms. Jagaciak eventually become another iconic CK face right up there with Brooke Shields and Kate Moss?" Natalia Vodianova last appeared in the Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2007 campaign.
>> While Calvin Klein is sticking to Eva Mendes for their Fall 2009 Underwear ads — and giving her the Calvin Klein Jeans campaign as well — they're switching it up for the rest of the cadre. Jourdan Dunn and Sigrid Agren paired up for the CK Calvin Klein set by Craig McDean, who also photographed the Calvin Klein campaign with Jamie Dornan and Edita Vilkeviciute. And the Calvin Klein Collection set was done by David Sims with brand exclusive Monica "Jac" Jagaciak, who opened and closed the brand's Fall 2009 show. Get used to these images — they're appearing on 1,080 pages globally.
>> ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL —Style.com named their top ten new models for Fall 2009 Friday, and along the way confirmed the rumor that 15-year-old Polish wunderkind Monika "Jac" Jagaciak, who couldn't walk in Paris because she was too young, would be Calvin Klein's Fall 2009 face. Apparently she scored the gig last week, and if the rest of the rumor holds true, she's a brand exclusive. [Style.com]
>> Just yesterday we were talking about the general direction of Fall 2009 ad campaigns and who might be the lucky girls, and already we've got some more concrete rumors.
First up, a surprise: Balenciaga is not one of the major brands to go with a single girl that was mentioned yesterday — instead, they're going with a group — of celebrities, at that — lensed by Steven Meisel. In the past seasons, Nicholas Ghesquiere has used Charlotte Gainsbourg and Jennifer Connelly — will they reprise their roles, or is he going with an entirely new look? I'm leaning toward the latter.
As for Calvin Klein, Francisco Costa is rumored to have chosen Monika "Jac" Jagaciak, one of the standout faces of the season, for the main Collection campaign — as an exclusive, just as he did with Anna Selezneva for Spring 2009. And it seems Stefano Pilati is continuing his super obsession at Yves Saint Laurent — past seasons have seen Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, and Kate Moss was just photographed for an upcoming fragrance. Now, Christy Turlington is rumored to have been shot for Fall 2009.
