The impossibly cute Bryce Dallas Howard has been signed by Kate Spade to front the brand's spring and fall 2011 ad campaigns. Of the brand's choosing Howard, Kate Spade President and Chief Creative Officer Deborah Lloyd said, "Bryce is playful, gorgeous and multi-talented. She embraces and embodies the spirit of our brand. The moment she puts our clothes on they come to life in a new, spirited way."
Shot by fashion photographer Norman Jean Roy, Howard is the first celebrity the brand has tapped to appear in its advertising.
Who wouldn't jump at the chance to hang with Maria Sharapova? Certainly not Jonny Watson and Dan Harrison from Dare who were offered 90 minutes of the Russian tennis babe's time to come up with a video to promote Google's Search by Voice technology. The resulting video became part of Google's Demo Slam which allows the public to vote for their favorite Google product demo.
Sharapova, being the famous beauty she is, and the pair's Whack A Guy With A Tennis Ball approach has garnered the video 156,000 views and the number four slot in the Demo Slam competition.
How the super cute Little Jenny became the rebellious, sexed-up Taylor Momsen is a mystery we may never solve but John Galliano is happy that's the direction in which things are headed. He's tapped the 17 year old Gossip Girl to appear in a new ad campaign for his Parlez moi d'amour fragrance.
Hey, she's a Trump. So, naturally, she can do anything she wants. And what woman wouldn't want a line of shoes named after her, designed by her and sold by appearing in an ad campaign for the shoes? That's exactly what Ivanka did for her new line of shoes, Ivanka Trump Footwear.
All we can say is, "Damn! That girls has super sexy legs!"
- In addition to having just signed a deal with Vera Wang, Leighton Meester will also become the face of fashion label Missoni and front the brand's advertising.
- like Chris Pine? Think Evan Rachel Wood is hot? Then you'll love seeing the two of them together in a Gucci Guilty ad campaign.
- Apparently, online advertising as we know it will end following the proposed Do Not Track list.
- It's not an ad campaign but it is a campaign. A campaign to buy Maggie Gyllenhall a boob job.
- Don't give gifts this year. Give GIFS.
Sitting beside a fire with the Pepsi delivery guy, Snoop Dogg shares with us his version of A Christmas story. It's an interesting story, indeed. The dude gets around. He just did a promotion with Ford for the brand's 2011 Explorer.
Like a Stepford wife crossed with a daydreaming porn star, Megan Fox peers longingly into the camera...in slow motion, of course...in an attempt to get us to buy Giorgia Armani Beauty products. This work follows a commercial called The tip Fox previously did during which she tantalized a waiter by getting dressed in front of him. It was far hotter than this current work which insist upon going in an over-stylized direction that doesn't so much sell cosmetics as it does hit us over the head with a stick once again issuing the painful reminder most of us are not and never will be as hot as Megan Fox.
By now most of you have probably seen the T-Mobile myTouch 4G commercial called New Ride which apes Apple's I'm A Mac campaign. It's the one where the Hot Chick (naturally) tells the doofus (naturally) on a scooter her network is faster than his.
What you probably don't know, or don't care about...let's be honest here, is Paris Hilton was seen a couple of days ago at a photo shoot sporting a near exact replica of the skin tight body suit the T-Mobile Hot Chick wears in the commercial. The only difference, as compared to the more buttoned up T-Mobile Hot Chick, being the enormous quantity of visible cleavage bursting forth from within the confines of Hilton's suit as it strains to contain her bulging dirigibles
Fluke? Subliminal stealth marketing? Lucky break for T-Mobile? We can only wish. But, no. She's reportedly launching a motorcycle racing team.
And, yes. You would stare too.
Oxfam America is out with a new campaign that pokes fun at high fashion advertising by substituting models with livestock including alpacas, goats and chickens. Real fashion photographer Pier Nicola D'Amico shot the campaign and Mini Driver along with Scarlett Johannson lend some dry wit.

Follow the series on YouTube as it unfolds.
