Paul Smith for Evian

Last year I posted about the Jean Paul Gaultier for Evian water bottles and this year Evian has collaborated with British designer Paul Smith. I am loving the PS bottle and it's so interesting to see Paul Smith's creativity/mood room where all the design magic happens!

Jimmy Choo for H&M Men

Here's a glimpse at the diffusion collection between Jimmy Choo and H&M. Jimmy Choo is renowned for his beautiful hand made women's shoes and this is his first real men's collection.

The shoes are definitely the strongest pieces in this sneak peek, although I'm kind of feeling the blue long sleeved pullover (more so for the patches on the elbow) and the grey t-shirt with the pocket. It will be interesting to see how well this collaboration performs. I think the shoes and accessories will definitely sell out, but I'm not so sure about the clothes...

Jimmy Choo for H&M hits select H&M stores November 14th worldwide.

Whitney Houston Million Dollar Bill Video

This is the new video for Whitney's latest single Million Dollar Bill. She's totally got the Philly soul diva vibe going on and it completely works with this song. Alicia Keys wrote this song for Whitney and it's a great second single that will definitely help to bring her back into the spotlight.

I am loving the makeup and styling in this video and Whitney looks fresh, fabulous, and gorgeous! Her look in this video reminds me of her My Love is Your Love video where she has a similar mood, style, and aesthetic going on. I'm definitely looking forward to more from Whitney and this video is a clear indication that she is back!

Skate Decks by Marc by Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs has just released these skate decks at all of his flagship Marc by Marc Jacobs stores. This is just another indication that the Marc Jacobs empire is bent on expansion. Limited to 100 pieces each and priced at $89US, these decks will definitely appeal to the Marc by Marc Jacobs consumer. I wonder how much influence consumer demographics and psychographics had on this newest product venture for MJ...

Emma Watson for Burberry

My latest piece for

I have been obsessed with the look and styling of the Fall/Winter '09 Burberry ad campaign featuring Emma Watson. The Harry Potter starlet effortlessly brings elegance and class to this ad campaign and she is a perfect fit for this iconic British brand. She has grown up right before our eyes and fashion and style is definitely an important factor to the success of any young actress. Landing the Burberry ad campaign helps to boost Emma's notoriety as a celebrity and fashionista.

Emma described her Burberry modeling experience as, "The biggest ego boost of my life" and Burberry's creative director, Christopher Bailey, states that Emma is, "One of the great British new icons." Famed fashion photographer Mario Testino shot these images (see below) in the Westminster district of London and the city backdrop works to accentuate the stark silhouettes and colors of this collection. Check out the video below for a look behind the scenes of this ad campaign.

My favourite look from this campaign is the one where Emma's scarf is tied in an exaggerated manner and worn with the classic trench as it is interesting, stylish and completely functional. Being creative with accessories is a great way to add some interest to any outfit and although we may not be living in London, we definitely experience similar fall weather. A trench coat and a warm scarf are key pieces in any Canadian wardrobe and this exaggerated scarf/trench look is simple to achieve. There is no doubt that Emma and this ad campaign will inspire many exaggerated scarf/trench looks this fall season!

Madonna Celebration Video

Here is the new video for Madonna's latest single Celebration. I'm feeling this video for the most part, I just wish that she would stop crawling around on the floor...
