Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Yes, Rosie Huntington replaced Emma Watson in 2010

By September 14, 2011 Designers

In fashion time pass by quickly and whatever happened, happened.  Previous collections remain in the past. Some may leave legacy, but they’re gone.

However, I have noticed that some people keep asking  for their Harry Potter star…”where’s Emma Watson in the Burberry ad?”…

Well, let me tell you that since Burberry’s AW10 collection, the brand had a nice turn. First, like Ralph Lauren, Burberry also took the technology challenge and added 3D effect to its campaign. And not only that, they have got the sexy Victoria Secret’s English angel and Transformers 3 ‘never crashed’ star, Rosie Huntington, in it. So since then, they said ‘bye bye’ to the innocent look of Emma Watson and ‘hey baby, hey baby, hey!’ to this gorgeous fat lips blondie. ~The first campaign resulted in an amazing work of the talented Christopher Bailey in collaboration with the awesomeness of my favourite Peruvian, Mario Testino.

Watch here Christopher Bailey talking about the innovation of the campaign:

Hell for leather

Model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wears a hot leather piece.

More than a John Galliano, Domenico Dolce or Stefanno Gabbana taste, leather is a British high-street fashion.

More than warming, leather is provocative, innovative and irreverent. Is simply a strong essential in every wardrobe.

More than accessories, you can even wrap yourself with this material, and if you don’t like the classic black leather go for bronze or joyful colours. Of course, more than the attitude, you’ll need the silhouette to wrap up and show-off a leather body.

According to Vogue magazine (November issue), this season, Tomas Maier at Bottega Veneta and Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton gave leather a buttery chamois texture and worked into pretty shapes that feel refreshingly light to wear.

Vogue noticed a £195 laser-cut leather jacket by Cos. It doesn’t warm, but with a cashmere sweater underneath you’ll be warm enough.

On its side, Bazaar magazine shows the brit model of the moment, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley striking a note of playful glamour in posh leather articles, such as a ludicrous £6,195 leather studded jacket from Yves Saint Laurent; a Marc Jacobs £985 leather bag; an Armani stunning crocodile leather jacket, £4,400; a Chanel £3,050 leather skirt; a Fendi £575 leather bustier; and more.

Every outfit can has a rock and roll touch, and leather is what spices it up.

In addition, it could vary from classic, to really chic-punk. Any how, leather is girls’ dark side, that’s why “leather” equals “sexy”.

Cosmopolitan magazine covered its pages with some basic but stunning leather photographs by  Tom Corbett, showing how to toughen up the wardrobe with this season’s staples.

Black is the punky and ruling colour, but not the only stylish one, so white comes to light, as a way to wear leather with class. Fashion stylist, Shelly Vella, show us how.
