TH Fall 2013 Ad Campaign Awards

As the famous and adored September issues are known for their super-sized page counts, we all know the real bulk is in the ads. After all, September issues are for the consumer to use as their Fall fashion bibles, right? But the ads don’t stop there. From TV, to billboards, to Instagram and even Vine, fashion ads are everywhere you look and we’re here to hand out awards for our faves.

Best Girl Gang: ZARA

This ad makes us want to hang with these girls, shop with these girls, and be these girls. The matching hats and all black ensembles adds to the badass-ness.

Most Likely to Make You Want to Go to School: TOMMY HILFIGER DENIM

College prep king Tommy Hilfiger is known for his classic Americana group ads, but this year’s TH Denim ad is making us feel nostalgically collegiate.

Most Creative (or Most Likely to Make You Go WTF?….):  KENZO

Kenzo always exhibits funky and fresh designs and patterns, and this time this eccentric personality goes beyond the runway and onto ads. Bugs, pins, mini-people, tweezers? Nightmare? Brillance? Not sure what to call them, but these ads sure grabbed our attention.

I love a good celeb cameo, and as Michelle Williams and Nicole Kidman show us, their talents go far beyond the silver screen. Absolutely flawless, we couldn’t pick one!

Best Couple: TOM STURRIDGE AND SIENNA MILLER, BURBERRY

Okay, no words are really needed here. LOOK AT THESE TWO! Simply beautiful.

Best Designer Cameo: JASON WU (JASON WU AND CHRISTY TURLINGTON)

While most designers don’t feature themselves in ads (ahem, except Marc Jacobs),  Jason Wu went for it and nailed it. It looks like Wu and Turlington were just hanging out having a fun lunch and someone happened to snap a shot of them (which may very well be the case here). Definitely makes me want to hang with Jason Wu.

Most Featured Model: CARA DELEVINGNE (MULBERRY, DKNY, FENDI, SAINT LAURENT)

CARA DELEVINGNE

It’s quite obvious Ms. Delevingne (still practicing on my pronunciation) is the new IT girl. She’s nailed the pout, the stare, and those eyebrows!

Most Glamorous: DIOR

The location, the clothes, the makeup, the hair, everything about Dior seems to always scream classic glamour, and this Fall campaign brought all of these elements together in an almost magical looking scene.

Most Popular/Crowd Favorite/Best Ad/TH FAVE: TOM FORD

Every since Jay decided to rock Tom Ford, it seems like everyone else does too. Whether you’re a newbie or die-hard Ford fan, we can all agree this campaign is killer. Simple, yet bold; busy, yet pulled together, Ford pulled off the perfect campaign. The 80s themed colors, perfectly posed same trio of models, simple white backgrounds, the list goes on.  I can’t find anything I don’t like about this campaign. What do you think?

Super Bowl Style: Beyonce Makes Knee Socks Sexy at Pepsi Halftime Show

By Brooke

She came, she saw, she conquered…all in heels mind you. We knew Beyonce’s performance for the Pepsi Halftime Show was going to be flawless last night at the Superbowl – why would we expect anything less?! If you were too busy watching the Puppy Bowl and missed it, shame on you! (Click here to watch Bey’s rehearsal footage)

No Jay, no out-of-box guest performers…just a diva who loves to get her dance on and sing her heart out while surrounded by an all female band and a sea of fierce back-up dancers. The rumor of Destiny’ Child reuniting on the halftime stage had been floating around all week and when Kelly and Michelle flew up from underneath the stage- history had been made. How awesome was it to see all these ladies on stage again!!??

If the Pepsi commercial counting down to Bey’s performance didn’t give you heart palpitations, I’m sure her dancing in heels did! What would a Beyonce show be without a corset leotard, heels, and the complete package of Sasha Fierce? Her leather corset leotard with lace embellishments was custom designed by up-and coming New York designer Rubin Singer.

My favorite part of Beyonce’s outfit were her fierce knee-high socks. Has Beyonce brought back the school girl chic look? These socks are great because they elongate your legs and keep them warm while giving the illusion that you’re wearing boots. Black is always a classic, safe color for socks – especially if you’re planning on wearing them to work or happy hour. Colored knee socks go great under riding boots or with heels. I’m pretty sure you won’t be wearing your socks with a leotard, so try them with daisy dukes or a skirt.

Thanks Bey for being such a fashion icon and true inspiration that dreams can come true. Oh yeah and motivation to go to the gym. If she can move like that on stage and I was tired walking from the couch to the chip dip, there is a well-needed intervention coming my way.

Did you watch the Pepsi Halftime Show? Comment and tell us what you thought of Beyonce’s performance and fierce outfit. Also, shop below to get some trendy knee socks!
