Victoria’s Secret taps Gigi, Emily, Paloma, and Tina for tropical Summer 2024 campaign 

Victoria’s Secret is hitting the beach this summer, with a little help from Gigi Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, Paloma Elsesser, and Tina Kunakey. All four models are the faces of the brand’s breezy “Escape to Summer” campaign, celebrating its new Summer 2024 collection. Imagery finds the super crew basking in the sun, sand, and wind by blue ocean waves, while also taking time to lounge in sunset-lit cabanas and take a dip in the pool. The full range of ’90s and 2000’s-inspired swimwear notably features bikinis, one-pieces, minidresses, tops, skirts, pants, and a range of sheer and crystal-trimmed lingerie and sleepwear—all in a cool palette of green, yellow, black, white, tan, and brown, with accents ranging from wild leopard prints to bohemian fringe.

Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine front Jacquie Aiche’s Rebel Heart campaign 

Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine have been tapped to star in fine jewelry designer Jacquie Aiche’s latest campaign. Inspired by the allure, electricity, and sensuality of romance, the new shots find the couple draped in an array of bohemian necklaces, rings, earrings, and more from Aiche’s new “Rebel Heart” collection. For a signature Aiche twist, each piece is accented by charms and pendants shaped like locks, keys, crosses, feathers, and aliens—all crafted with gleaming pavé diamonds, emeralds, pink tourmaline, onyx, and more precious materials.

“I hadn’t done a shoot for Jacquie in a while, and we had been talking about it for so long,” Prinsloo said. “I was excited once it came together because I feel like I’m in a different place in my life now. This time around, it felt so special with Adam and I collaborating together. It was all so natural; I knew Jacquie was going to make this a really special shoot.”
