The face: Hamburg-born beauty Toni Garrn alongside male model David Genat.
Haute shutterbug: Celeb and fashion photographer Mario Testino shot the New York-based ad, with an oh-so-subtle nod to the city’s majestic skyline—perhaps a foreshadow to the opening of the Spanish brand’s Fifth Avenue flagship this October.
The look: The sultry duo embodies the sleek and timeless essence of the brand’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection—Garrn sporting a crisp white blouse and oversized bag and Genat in a fitted ( so fitted) classic striped suit.
Fave shot: Garrn piercing the camera with her bold blue eyes (Genat dreamily veering away) as the city skyline sits faintly in the background.
Fashion label: Stella McCartney
The face: Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova
Haute shutterbug: High fashion photog duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, who also snapped Gucci, Tom Ford Beauty and Emilio Pucci’s Fall/Winter 2012 campaigns.
The look: A whimsical playland of colour and personality for Vodianova’s third-time charm of fronting the British designer’s collection.
Fave shot: Seeing Vodianova’s sporty side as she kicks up a pointy heel.
Fashion label: Céline
The face: Canadian darling Daria Werbowy and Latvian beauty Ginta Lapina
Haute shutterbug: German photographer and artist Juergen Teller, also of Marc Jacobs and Vivienne Westwood’s Fall/Winter 2012 fashion campaigns.
The look: A pared-down, minimalist Werbowy captures the pared-down and minimalist French design house, wearing sleek, structured leathers and a scrubbed-clean, makeup-free face.
Fave shot: An Instagram-worthy Werbowy in paneled, multi-tone leather outwear while a soft pink flamingo hovers nearby.
