“Can’t Ruin My Fun”by Jahan Lennon…alternate title “Aggressive hair combing and every single piece of clothing Daniel Palillo has ever made plus Underground shoes, strobes, fog and mirror effects”. Not that I’m complaining.

I didn’t want to like Charlotte Free what with the whole dyed hair trend being really overplayed in fashion, but I guess I caught the fever. She’s great in this fashion film, which also has really cool sound design. Watch the film by Brian Kazez below.
Steven Meisel has yet again shot Prada‘s video campaign – this time for the 50′s-inspired Spring 2012 collection. Although Meisel follows his same (winning?) formula of weird music, slow-motion contrasted with rapid cutting, and lots of closeups on accessories, I’m not bored yet. This one is much more cinematic than his past campaigns, with a hint of a story this time around. Shot in a gas station with lots of shiny vintage cars to match their shiny vintage-style sunglasses, models give each other bad vibes, fix their makeup, and pose by their cars intimidatingly. As we girls do.
Here is a very clever music video for Duran Duran’s Girl Panic! shot at the Savoy in London. It features top models as members of the band, including Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen.
I’m basing this opinion solely on the look of the set, (which includes a giant hamster wheel for models and a cage), but I can already tell that the Versace x H&M tv commercial is going to be amazing. Watch the behind the scenes below;
I am beyond excited about Illamasqua‘s first fragrance, “Freak” which launches at the end of the month. Frankly I don’t really care what it smells like, I just love the name, campaign, and of course, the adorable little silver snail on the bottle.
Are you a freak?
Quentin Jones directed this delightful, Dada-esque mixed media fashion film for VogueTV, featuring ballet dancer Emma Chadwick in Chanel SS11. It’s very refreshing to see a cheerful fashion film that incorporates animation and collage video techniques and still shows off the clothes in a creative way. Watch “Dancing Chanel” below;
I love this cute perfume advert for Prada “Candy” by Léa Seydoux…I am rarely tempted to try out new fragrances but now I’m curious about this one. Watch below;
New Doc Martens campaign featuring Agyness Deyn;
Here’s a preview from another video I shot, with Una as my model and her Luxirare vest. Can’t wait to post the finished product! I’m just waiting on the music at this point :)
Monica Menez directed this beautifully shot and styled fashion film entitled “Precious” for Willems Wonderglasses AW11. The makeup and nails are amazing, as are the clothes, the lighting, and the fact that the model kneads the pizza dough with her butt.
If this isn’t how you make pizza, you are doing it wrong;
Another Magazine produced this beauty film for Viktor & Rolf AW11, directed by KT Auleta. The soundtrack is amazing and I love the idea of makeup being like armour or warrior paint. Featuring Lindsay Wixon’s unmistakable lips, the videos shows her and a bunch of models prepare for battle, a ‘Battle for the Sun” to go along with the AW11 collection of the same title.

“We were compelled to create an army…An army to battle for beauty. A crusade to communicate our passion for fashion”.

Arizona Muse stars in Yves Saint Laurent‘s dreamy spring/summer campaign video. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin captured the sexy side of seventies style in a glamorous pool-side setting, and let’s just say Arizona knows how to work a palm tree. Watch below;
Thoughts? As much as I always complain about black and white, double-exposure and slow-motion in fashion films, I feel like this video works because its not trying to be edgy…it shows off the clothes beautifully, and feels summery and a little bit tipsy. And its high time for midday Long Island ice teas, in my opinion.
Want to see Cole Mohr bust a move in creeper shoes with his gang of greaser lads? Of course you do. Watch “Jive! Jive! Jive!” by Bon Duke below;
If you are as bored as I am of all these moody, broody “edgy” fashion films, “The Suitcase” is a breath of fresh air. Greg Brunkalla directs this great narrative fashion short about playing dress up, in which model Noot Seear takes a little trip down memory lane and wears some adorable cat ears. Watch below;
Although the video is fun and cheerful, her breakfast certainly isn’t…who eats lemons for breakfast? No wonder models are so thin! Any thoughts?

Fashion films with traditional narrative elements are hard to come by, as are female fashion filmmakers. The “Miu Miu Women’s Tales”, a project which commissions short films from woman filmmakers, delivers both. Zoe Cassavetes directs the first of the series with a short entitled ”The Powder Room”, which “…delves into the ultra-feminine environment where gestures between women are traded in their rituals of opulence and beauty…Cassavetes’ film uses the romantic codes of the powder room to mirror the beauty and luxury of the Miu Miu universe” (via Dazed Digital)
Thoughts? I think its both beautiful to look at and communicates a compelling story without looking like an advertisement. It is just as much about the women themselves as the clothes they wear. This is what I want to do with fashion film; To give clothing a narrative purpose through moving image.
