Versace Fall 2010 Campaign

Another one of my favourite campaigns at the moment is the Versace 2010 Fall campaign.  It is complete opposite to my recent post on the Miu Miu Fall campaign, models Iselin Steiro, Anna Selezneva and Valerija Kelava pose for a more edgier Versace campaign.  I love how it's so simple, yet so glam, editorial and edgy!

Miu Miu Fall 2010 Campaign

Channelling their inner 1960s mod, models Lindsay Wixson, Siri Tollered, Ginta Lapina and Daphne Groenveld pose for the current Miu Miu Fall 2010 campaign.  This is one of my favourite campaigns at the moment.  It's feminine, cute, playful and I love the 1960s vibe!

Words of Wisdom: Lauren Conrad

Thought I'd start a new post at 'The Lilac Mannequin.'   I've decided to share some words of wisdom from some of my favourite and inspirational mentors!
"You are going to have bad boyfriends and best friends-turned-enemies.  You need to be yourself, you need to work hard and you'll get there."  Lauren Conrad 

Abbey Lee Kershaw

One of my favourite models is Abbey Lee Kershaw.  Australian born Abbey, recognisable by her signature gap teeth, dominates the international fashion world and has appeared not only on the international runways, appeared on the cover and editorial spreads in magazines like Vogue, but of course she's a Victoria's Secret model!  Everywhere I look lately I see Abbey!  From the recent Resort and Haute Couture runways, to advertising campaigns for Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld and Mulberry, as well as appearing on the cover of Vogue nationally, including amazing editorial spreads!  I adore her recent Vogue Germany spread and cover.  This spread has pretty much appeared on every blog around the world because it is truly amazing!  Abbey appears alongside her musician boyfriend Matthew Hutchenson for a special music issue of Vogue Germany August 2010, titled 'Fashion Session.'  The editorial is total 70's retro, with a touch of rock, hippy and glam and Abbey looks stunning!
Thought I'd post another one of my favourite Abbey editorials.  She recently featured on the cover of Vogue Russia March 2010 including a gorgeous and feminine editorial shoot.  Dressed in Dolce and Gabbana florals, the editorial is pretty, soft, delicate, romantic and sweet!

'A Hollywood Ending'

It all began in Laguna Beach, where we watched young Lauren Conrad 'LC', finish her senior year.  We all fell in love with Lauren and followed her to Los Angeles and watched her live her fashion dreams.  And so it began.. the very first season of 'The Hills.'  When I think back to first season, I think Teen Vogue, Lauren and Jason, Heidi and Jordan, Bolthouse, Whitney, Audrina and well life was pretty good.  Six seasons later and a lot has changed!  We've witnessed the highs and the lows, the drama, fights and the glamour.  We were introduced to some unforgettable characters like Spencer and Justin Bobby.  We felt Lauren's pain as we watched her closest friends such as Heidi and Jen betray her and watched her realise her true friends like Whitney and Lo.  We watched them all fall in love, we watched the heartbreak.  We listened to Lauren's words of wisdom and watched her be re-united with blasts from the past.  We followed Lauren and Whitney through the crazy fashion world, from their internship at Teen Vogue to guidance of Kelly at People's Revolution.  We watched the infamous Speidi wedding and watched Heidi turn into Malibu Barbie.  We said goodbye to Whitney as she left for 'The City'.  And we watched Lauren hand over 'The Hills' to Kristin and we knew things would never be the same again.  Now six seasons later, it has all come to an end, where 'The Hills' cast joined together for one last time for the finale of the very last season.  Whilst Australian fans are at the begininning of the end, American fans said goodbye for the very last time as the finale aired less than a week ago.
Everyone was in attendance, even Lauren and Whitney returned!!  Except where were Heidi and Spencer?  Whitney and Lauren looked amazing as usual!  Here a few photos from the finale as well as a few of my favourites from the past seasons of 'The Hills'.
