Gigi Hadid is back in the hot seat for Self-Portait

Oooh la, Miss Hadid. Fashion’s go-to girl Gigi Hadid has reprised her role as a campaign star for Self-Portrait. The supermodel appears in a series of images and a video shot in New York by British photographer Tyrone Lebon, with creative direction by the brand’s founder Han Chong. Alex Harrington was also on hand to style the mom-of-one in new shimmering, sparkling, and lacy pieces from the perennially popular occasionwear brand. On his decision to cast Hadid once more, Chong said it was a natural choice due to her embodiment of the word joy. “She truly embodies our self-portrait woman—independent, confident, sensitive, and always a lot of fun. For this new season’s campaign, we wanted to give the collection a rawness and sensuality. Together, Tyrone and Gigi brought this attitude to life through a series of videos and images shot on a parking lot in New York, the result is honest, natural, feminine and magical.” If only we looked this good in a parking lot. Check out the campaign, below:

Alexandre Birman launches conscious new capsule, beLEAF 

Shoemaker to the stars Alexandre Birman has launched a collection of five of his brand’s popular styles using beLEAF; a zero waste regenerative plant based leather alternative from Brazil. It’s the latest move in the Brazil-based luxury footwear line’s commitment to reducing its environmental impact. A little more about BeLeaf: this innovative, cruelty-free non-animal leather alternative is derived from plants through an entirely organic process (no heavy metal usage, no water waste, and 100% complete reuse of the solid waste) which supports reforestation efforts in Brazil. BeLEAF’s natural leaf-like print is now present in styles of 50mm, 85mm, and 100 mm stilettos heels and the 120 classic platform—ergo, footwear you can feel good about it. Shop it like it’s hot, here.
