M&S Campaign

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (24) and Ryan Reynolds (34) star in the autumn/winter campaign for high street store Marks and Spencer. They are the faces of the new Autograph collection. Steve Sharp (M&S executive director) said "Rosie and Ryan are the perfect fit for Autograph - beautiful, exclusive and absolutely contemporary. On set they worked together to deliver a mesmerising performance which allowed us to capture shots that literally sizzle with excitement and an air of mystery."

It has been announced that male model David Gandy, who works for Dolce & Gabbana, is going to be the new  face of the AW Collezione Collection. It is also confirmed that Lisa Snowdon, Jamie Redknapp and Twiggy are still key members of the advertising campaigns.

Looks like M&S have upped the ante and are creating a bit of competition for the other high-street stores!

Louboutin for Mary Katrantzou

Now words can't even describe how amazing these shoes are. Christian Louboutin has collaborated with Mary Katrantzou to create a collection of bold, beautiful, ornate shoes.

My favourite - perfect for the AW fetish trend

Katrantzou's signature design is recreated with these shoes

And of course he has stuck with the signature red sole... I think we'd be disappointed if he didn't!

Topshop's Faux Fur Coat

Topshops beautiful over sized faux fur coat in oxblood is perfect for AW... the rich colour will suit all skin tones and create warmth... the colour will compliment almost any outfit and it's perfect for those cold winter days. And it's nice to have a change from the usual brown fur coats.

The only downside is the hefty price tag... £255... but then again I think it looks worth it and I don't think you will find a coat that looks as nice as this and that is of such good quality so don't let that put you off... unless you're a student like me ;)

Zara Shoes

Zara's shoe collection is rather impressive at the moment. From knee high boots to two-tone ballerinas - they are bang on trend. And they haven't forgotten about the snakeskin for this AW... if you find it too daring to wear on clothes then just grab a pair of Zara's shoes... they have snakeskin boots, heels and ballerinas... so no excuses!

I love the two toned theme they have running through the shoes - it's not only stylish but it's practical as well, they will go with a lot more of your outfits!

But if you're daring enough to go the whole way then take a look at these snakeskin beauties...

Thank god the Angels have landed!

Victoria's Secret (a US lingerie brand) is coming to England! The store is going to be on New Bond Street in London and it's rumoured that there are going to be 2 or 3 other stores in the London area as part of a global expansion plan. Victoria's Secret not only specialises in lingerie but also sleepwear, swimwear and cosmetics. The sub-brand PINK is extremely popular and targeted towards college-age women (18-21).

The price of Victoria's Secret underwear is generally more expensive that a regular high-street store but the quality of the items are much better - so you get what you pay for.

The brand is famous for it's extravagant runway shows and the Victoria's Secret Angels that star in it - any models dream. Victoria's Secret Angels have included Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, Doutzen Croez, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Donaldson, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Chanel Iman, Miranda Kerr, Heidi Klum, Gisele Bundchen, Karolina Kurkova and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

VS Shows:

I cannot wait for it to open here... Lets hope it doesn't take long!

Tom Ford AW '11

Tom Ford's AW campaign is not dissimilar to Gucci's campaign. They both contain strong, dramatic colours, they're fierce and they ooze glamour and sex appeal.

Tom Ford's Menswear collection also has come great pieces:

The model in Tom Ford's Womenswear campaign is renowned supermodel and Victoria's Secret Angel; Candice Swanepoel.

But recently Candice has been criticised for her tiny frame and people were shocked to see her dramatic weight loss at the Victoria's Secret Swimwear launch:

She looks significantly smaller than Alessandro and Adriana who are already tiny but she claims to be 'healthy and happy'. Victoria's Secret have been criticised for no longer using curvier models like Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum and Naomi Campbell but choosing super slim models instead. What do you think?

Daria Werbowy

Daria Werbowy is an international may not have heard of her but you definitely would have seen her... She's starred in a huge number of campaigns and has modelled for the likes of Burberry, Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Roberto Cavalli and many more. She also holds the record for opening and closing the most shows in one season (12 shows in 2005).

You may recognise Daria from her H&M campaigns:

She also has a contract with Lancome..

Above is the new editorial for Lancome's Hypnose mascara. Daria is on the left and she looks quite similar to Linda Evangelista here!

One of her most recent campaigns is with Stefanel, an Italian designer brand, who she has worked with many times before.

Daria has featured in Vogue many times but I love the images of her from French Vogue in 2010.

One of my favourite images of her:

The photographs of Daria in W magazine are amazing...

And how toned is she?!
