Kate Hudson: Elle UK April 2008



    After being hailed as official Style Icon at the Elle UK Style Awards, Kate Hudson will be on the cover of the magazine's April issue. For this issue, Kate spilled some of her thoughts on fashion and also opened up about the unusual relationship she shares with her ex-husband, Chris Robinson, and her desire to wear as little clothing as possible.
    • On her own personal style: "I love clothes! But I would never put something on just because it's high fashion. . . I like people to have personal style. . . I'm not into the trampy look. I like to mismatch. I like a look that is not too thought out!"
    • On keeping in shape: "I've always been a dancer. I took ballet from the age of three to 13, then got into jazz dance. Now I have a dance instructor several times a week and I do Pilates."
    • On showing off her figure: "I plan to wear as little as possible for as long as I can. . . I know I won't have this body forever, she says. and I would like to have another child some day."
    • On her relationship with Chris: "The other day I told someone my husband was coming over and they said, 'You mean your ex-husband'. I do love my ex. Whatever man I end up with, I'll always love Chris."
    • On her body image: "If there's one thing I've learnt this year, it's not to think too much about my image. I don't dress for anyone but me and the people I love."
    • On what she'll be wearing this Spring: "Right now I'm in love with colour! Particularly purple. I just bought a purple Dolce sweater. The other color I love for spring is cobalt blue. And that peachy skin-tone colour."

Weird and Controversial Ads: The Only Way to Standout?

    I guess in today’s market, you have to resort to extreme and shocking ads to stand out and get attention. Take the following ads for example:

    Running Free Support Bra
    This controversial
    Running Free support bra ad campaign features three photos: a woman with a broken nose, a woman with a black eye and a woman with missing teeth. Obviously, from injuries by their bouncing assets while running. The tag line is “Support bras, now available.” The photographer is Chris Gordaneer for DDB Toronto, Canada Advertising Agency.




    Finland's Next Top Model
    The ads for Finland’s Next Top Model portray a full fledged catfight! From hair pulling to WWF wrestling and martial art moves. The ads are photographed by Petrus Olsson with art direction by Mikael Nemeschnaksy for hasan & partners advertising agency, Finland.




    Deutsch Magazine
    This ad campaign for the lifestyle magazine does not hold back on the daringness or shock value. The ads depict a dog that is
    getting intimate with a woman. But it does so in style, with diamond blinged teeth. The ads were done by Jung von Matt/Neckar Advertising Agency, Stuttgart, Germany.

Heidi Klum & Will Ferrell: Sports Illustrated 2008 Swimsuit Issue

    Together with Bar Refaeli, comedian Will Ferrell teamed up with Supermodel Heidi Klum for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2008 Issue.

    Ferrell is in the SI shoot to promote his new film, "Semi-Pro". Ferrell plays 1970’s basketball team owner/coach/player, Jackie Moon. The SI shoot has a naughty yet funny theme. I think there's a trend for campaigns with funny themes nowadays.

Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Kidman as Marilyn Monroe

    Two women sported the same look for different reasons. One committed to recreate Marilyn Monroe and the other paid tribute to her. Who's the best impersonator?

    Lindsay posed nude in a Marilyn Monroe-style for photographer Bert Stern. The theme of the shoot was to re-create Monroe's pictures from the famed 1962 shoot, entitled, "The Last Sitting". Bert Stern worked with Lohan at the Hotel Bel-Air in California, the same hotel where Marilyn was found dead in 1962 six weeks later. Lindsay posed wearing an iconic blond wig, chiffon and little else.

    The photographs will be published in the New York magazine.







    Due to the sensitive nature of the photographs, some of them will not be posted but I'll provide a link for you. Just click here.

    Nicole Kidman will be expecting her first child, but before the bulge gets obvious she agreed to have a sexy pose for the 10th Anniversary edition of the Australian Harper’s Bazaar. Nicole channeled the Marilyn Monroe look in this Some Like It Hot issue.
