After closing out Balenciaga's Spring 2011 runway show back in September, rumors swirled that Gisele Bündchen would be the face of the ad campaign. And they were true: images of the campaign just surfaced featuring Bündchen, accompanied by ghostly-looking male model Yuri Pleskun, channeling her inner punk in Nicolas Ghesquière’s latest collection. The campaign was shot by Steven Meisel and Marie-Amélie Sauvé styled.
Carine Roitfeld announced her resignation from Vogue Paris — effective the end of January — last Friday leaving everyone in a tizzy. Many speculated that Roitfeld's next project would be with Tom Ford, but the designer spoke up claiming that nothing is currently in the works: "Carine and I have no plans to work together at the moment, and it is nothing that we have even discussed, but of course I think she is brilliant, and we are close friends so who knows about the future."
Roitfeld explained to WWD why she decided to leave Vogue Paris: "When we published our 90th anniversary issue in October, it felt almost like a double anniversary for me. I knew I wasn’t really going to stay much longer. I think it’s good to get out while you’re ahead, and I think right now, Vogue is outstanding. I’m very proud of it. I have an exceptional team." Furthermore, Roitfeld stated having issues regarding a structured work environment: "I have always been a freelancer, so when I was hired 10 years ago, I found it very difficult to have an office, an assistant, a schedule, fixed vacations. But at the same time, it was such a huge job that I said yes. It’s been an incredible adventure, but maybe in my heart and soul, I am more of a freelancer. I’m surprised I even stuck it out this long, but what made me stay is having a boss like Jonathan [Newhouse], who is an incredible man who gave me total freedom, and God knows I pushed the boundaries."

For Spring/Summer 2011, H&M focuses on the mood of the 60s and 70s. It’s either long and loose or short and sharp. “It’s great to reinvent your wardrobe at the beginning of a new season. Fashion doesn’t change as drastically as it used to so you could easily get last season’s favourites to work with smart updates. Safe buys for spring are cool classics in beige or white, and the longer skirts and dresses feel new and very feminine”, says H&M’s head of design Ann-Sofie Johansson.
