[January Jones]

12 Jan

Over dinner last week the subject of Vogue got brought up, moving very quickly onto the new Versace campaign starring Miss January Jones. I was quizzed by my friend on why such a striking campaign hadn’t been mentioned on my blog. I had no answer. So here it is “Wiggly Worm”:

On screen, as the star of Mad Men, January Jones is known for her impeccable ’60s style. In her role of Betty Francis, the glacial blonde, former-model and frustrated ex-wife of ad man Don Draper, always requires a perfectly polished wardrobe of the decade’s finest fashions. So when the one and only Donatella Versace was looking to cast the face of Versace’s spring/summer 2011 campaign, which references the spirit of the Sixties, Jones was the obvious choice.

Shot by Mario Testino, Jones stripped down this season for Versace’s spring 2011 accessories campaign. Wearing nothing more than the label’s oversize bags and sleek sunglasses, January is a clearly Versace girl through and through.

Model Edie Campbell is the new It-girl on the London scene. A Burberry campaign veteran, Vogue model and girlfriend to Indie rocker Jonny Borrel – Edie is on the rise.

First it was the one and only Mario Testino who booked Edie for a Burberry group shot and stood the 15 year old right infront of Kate Moss. 4 years on at the ripe old age of 19, she has already starred in Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney campaigns as well as appearing in Vogue twice, the second time being featured as one of Vogue’s top 20 favourite models.

She has a grumpy pout which I find endearing and she certainly doesn’t try too hard – she is a one-off  beauty.
