FASHION SCOOP:Madonna For Versace S/S2015 Campaign,Balmain Majority Owner Dies

Actress Julia Roberts Models For Givenchy,Sans her famous smile
Riccardo Tisci cast Julia Roberts  to appear in a spring campaign that telegraphs the more classic side of the French fashion house. He dressed Roberts in signature Givenchy styles including a boxy jacket, lace shirt and a tuxedo dress.
The Italian designer, who next year will mark a decade at the creative helm of Givenchy, has been dressing Roberts on the red carpet for the past year and a half — in a lace couture gown for the 2014 Oscars and in a tuxedo jacket, white shirt and black skirt for the “Osage County” premiere, for example.

For the campaign, Tisci opted to showcase Roberts in more “boyish” guise, with minimal
 hair and makeup to exalt her striking features. 

The Roberts photos are to be juxtaposed with other images from a location shoot involving a range of younger
 models, the diptychs showing the range of Tisci’s collections — from runway edge to the staple styles he revisits and refines each season.
The campaign is slated to break in the March issues of international editions of Vogue, along with a range of edgier magazines — Purple, V, Interview, CR Fashion Book, System, Love, Flair, Common & Sense, Tvtor, I Look, Milk X — and fashion titles including Grazia, Elle, Madame Figaro, Marie Claire and GQ.
The spring campaign comes at a time of strong development for the house, with Tisci mentioning forthcoming store openings in Miami,
 Las Vegas and New York and a return to couture presentations “soon.”

Balmain's Majority Owner Dies
The majority owner of Balmain, Alain Hivelin, died in Paris on Thursday from a sudden illness. Seventy-nine-year-old Hivelin was instrumental in the brand’s recent revamp and global expansion and had a strong rapport with designers like the late Oscar de la Renta, who was the house’s last couturier, as well as with current creative director Olivier Rousteing. The charismatic leader leaves Balmain on a positive growth trajectory with stores in London and Paris set to open in the next year and a possible perfume and eyewear line in the works. 

Madonna For Versace

Days after her topless photo shoot for Interview went live, Versace released images of its spring/summer 2015 campaign starring the pop icon.  In the images, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Madonna looks powerful and confident, signature parts of the singer's personality. It also highlights her incredibly toned physique, a fitting canvas for the body-conscious clothes she's advertising.
This isn't the first time Madonna has lent her face for the Italian house's campaigns. She appeared twice in 1995, photographed by Steven Meisel andMario Testino, and in 2005 shot by Testino again -- both decades during which Madonna's music was at the top of the charts.
