Watch Chloë Sevigny model her latest collection for Opening Ceremony in “Where’s Bambi?,” a short film shot by indie darling and Sevigny friend William Strobeck. Set to Farm Colony’s “Fly the Sky,” the video feautures many of the actress/designer’s 34 pieces, including ’90s-inspired babydoll dresses, pleated swing skirts, and massive leopard print platform lace-up booties.
Watch the latest Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) advertisement, featuring just about every famous fashion-related face Anna Wintour could fit into a two-and-a-half-minute video. From designers Alex Wang and Michael Kors, models Liya Kebede and Karlie Kloss, to young entertainment types like Olivia Wilde, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, the black and white Norma Jean Roy-directed spot got its fashion bona fides from Vogue contributing editor Kathryn Neale, who styled all the stars (their FNO t-shirts, by the way, are available here for $25). Thanks to the CFDA and Ms. Wintour’s efforts, FNO events will take place all over the world next Tuesday, September 6th. For a full list of events in Manhattan and elsewhere, click here.
Watch Lanvin’s video version of its unique Winter 2012 ad campaign, featuring a bizarre (and very well-dressed) collection of characters. Each one describing their own style — or lifestyle, as the “I eat a lot of frozen blueberries” gentleman explains — the motley crew, which range in age from teens to 80s, demonstrates quite convincingly that Alber Elbaz’s high-concept clothing and accessories aren’t just for avant garde editors and Tilda Swinton. After last year’s viral video success with models Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmerman dancing to Pitbull’s “I Know You Want Me,” Lanvin has proven to produce one of the most anticipated and entertaining campaigns of the fashion season.
Watch the new trailer for the critically-acclaimed documentary, “Girl Model,” which tells the parallel stories of model scout Ashley Arbaugh and 13-year-old aspiring Siberian model Nadya, who, with no English and no advocate, attempts to break into the high-stakes industry. Originally premiering in limited release at the SXSW Festival this past March, the David Redmon and Ashley Sabin-directed exposé has won much critical acclaim for refusing to glorify the fashion business. Instead, the often painful to watch documentary captures candid moments from industry insiders as they critique young girls’ beauty, weight, skin, even bone size. The film debuts nationwide on September 5th. Find screening information here.
Watch Harper Bazaar’s lastest installment of their video interview series, “The Look,” with stylist/designer/reality star Rachel Zoe, who talks trends, inspirations, and her clothing and jewelry lines (the exaggerated gold lanyard she’s wearing is part of her new collection, sold exclusively at Neiman Marcus) with fashion editor Laura Brown. In the sit-down, Zoe also raises a good question: why can’t the Academy Awards be scheduled after Paris Fashion Week? In charge of dressing many of the show’s attendees (Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathway, Cameron Diaz, et al.), Zoe understandably — and persuasively — argues for full access to the upcoming season’s looks for the planet’s most important red carpet event of the year.
