Romeo Beckham proves he’s got his daddy David’s genes and energy in the new promo vid of Burberry’s Spring campaign directed by Christopher Bailey and shot by Mario Testino. Little Becks is all smiles as he “crashes” a shoot (video-bombs? campaign-bombs?) featuring Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Charlotte Wiggins, Charlie France, and Max Rende. Now if only Romeo could get his mommy Victoria to try this smiling thing a bit more.
WHAT: Peter Pilotto Geometric Print Scarf…WHY: Some of us at chez Daily are staunch subscribers to the sartorial philosophy that a scarf can truly salvage a lame outfit; on the laziest or craziest of days, a kicky neckwarming accoutrement can function, for better or worse, as the only redeeming and at least semi-chic element of a getup. Add this pretty, mixed-pattern Peter Pilotto wrap star to the repertoire at your own risk: black-on-black-on-black ensembles may become all the more ubiquitous with this cashmere-Modal blend to punch things up. No complaints there…AVAILABLE: $520, KirnaZabete.com…
Tsk, tsk. According to Page Six, Valentino is in the naughty chair with his neighbors in the Swiss Alps ski resort town of Gstaad because he blasted Madonna dance tunes just a wee too loud at his New Year’s Eve bash. How very dare! “A number of residents complained to the police as it was echoing around the mountain, and one officer went to speak to someone at the gate of Valentino’s chalet. But it didn’t seem to make much difference, and the music just carried on,” a source told the publication.
Glamour has found the worthy successor from the halls of Hearst for the executive beauty director role in wake of Felicia Milewicz’s November 2012 departure: Ying Chu is decamping from Marie Claire to take the top-tier gig. Chu will join the 4 Times Square glossy in late January after five years as beauty and health director at Marie Claire. Chu’s industry entrÃ© was as an intern at Flare in the beauty ed’s native Canadaâ€”she was born in Shanghai, bred in British Columbia, and educated at Ryerson University. Before joining MC in 2007, Chu spent a year apiece at Vogue and Seventeen after a stint at erstwhile mag Suede, started by Chu’s former boss at Flare.
Elle, yes! The new year is off with a bang for Andrej Pejic who has landed the cover of Serbian Elle’s January issue. Pejic’s dressed in Jean Paul Gautier on the cover and is featured in a spread as a man and woman. It’s the first time that a transgender mod has been on the cover of Elle, and it’s particularly poignant because the 21-year-old is a native of Serbia. Nice!
Oh, hello! Equinox and Terry Richardson are back for round trois of their notorious and naughty “By Equinox” campaign that kicks off 2013 with a gal in her undies jumping on a naked hottie. Classic Terry. Shot at the Stahl house in the Hollywood Hills, the notes for the campaign state that the ads “gives viewers an intimate peek into the lives of the other half â€“ where provocative and playful meet at their luxurious weekend escape.” Who has the keys to that joint?
We fell in love with Jennifer Lawrence after catching her awesome performance in Silver Linings Playbook. Now we officially want to be her BFF after her blunt comments in Vanity Fair’s Feb issue about being a thespian. â€œNot to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid,â€ Lawrence tells them. â€œEverybodyâ€™s like, â€˜How can you remain with a level head?â€™ And Iâ€™m like, â€˜Why would I ever get cocky? Iâ€™m not saving anybodyâ€™s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. Iâ€™m making movies.
Annie Hathaway (absolutely divine in Les MisÃ©rables!) covers the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK shot by David Slijper. The future Oscar winner (trust us, loves!) talks about her newbie husband Adam Shulman to the Brits telling them she fell for her guy right away: ”I knew from the second I met him that he was the love of my life.” Isn’t that precious? Hathaway will next be seen in the biopic of Liza Minnelli’s life story. (We kid, we kid, but that picture is soooooo young Liza.)
