Sydney Sweeney hits the road in Jimmy Choo’s Summer 2024 campaign

Hollywood hits the road! Anyone But You star Sydney Sweeney takes the wheel for Jimmy Choo’s sun-soaked Summer 2024 campaign, titled “Road to Joy.” Shot by Oliver Hadlee Pearch in Palm Springs, Sweeney dazzles from gas stations to desert photo booths in the brand’s new Cece mules, latte leather Cinch bag, and Jemma sandals, as well as Choo’s signature Ixia pumps, Amel kitten heels, and Diamond Maxi sneakers. Creative director Sandra Choi also praised Sweeney’s talent and glamour, making her the ideal muse for the free-spirited campaign.

“Sydney embodies the spirit of Jimmy Choo,” said Choi. “Talented, confident, and playful, with an inspiring work ethic. Her effortlessly cool sense of glamour is underpinned with an empowered sense of self. We loved working with Sydney to create the campaign story taking us on an uplifting adventure.”

Willow Smith poses for Allure‘s dynamic May issue

Willow Smith is the latest covergirl for Allure, showcasing her new jazz-influenced album ’empathogen’ in the magazine’s May issue. Smith makes statements throughout in dynamic outfits from Bad Binch TongTong, Acne, Issey Miyake, and Iris van Herpen, styled by Shiona Turini. The editorial, shot by Zhong Lin, is complete with avant-garde hairstyles by Vernon François and makeup by Raoul Alejandre. In the accompanying interview with editor Jessica Cruel, Smith details her musical evolution and personal growth as an artist, as well as public perceptions and growing up in the spotlight.

“I truly believe that my spirit is a strong spirit and that, even if my parents weren’t who they were, I would still be a weirdo and a crazy thinker,” Smith says. “I definitely think that a little bit of insecurity has driven me harder because people do think that the only reason I’m successful is because of my parents. That has driven me to work really hard to try to prove them wrong. But nowadays, I don’t need to prove sh-t to anybody.”
