When we viewed the Idan Cohen show back in February, we were dazzled by the beautiful intricacy of his work. Apparently, the stylists over at Cosmopolitan were too, since their July cover girl, Nicki Minaj, dazzled in a crystallized body suit from his RTW collection. Mr. Cohen debuted his designs for the first time at New York Fashion Week in February. We have no doubt it will not be his last. As time ticks down to September, we cannot wait to see what Idan Cohen has in store for us with his S/S 2016 Collection.

The bohemian chic brand, Roberto Cavalli, has stuck to its love of beautiful singers in its choice of the natural beauty R&B songstress Ciara. The fall/ winter campaign is described as:
“The story of a world encapsulated in one room. A surreal kingdom where the walls look like a magical sky and surfaces enchant with desert volumes and earthy hues.”

MARC JACOBS SLOWLY UNVEILS HIS FALL/WINTER CAMPAIGN
This morning Marc Jacobs unveiled a picture from his latest campaign starring Willow Smith. Over the past year, Willow and her brother Jaden have been two of the most interesting celebrity kids to watch, fashion-wise. Last week the Internet was buzzing about Jaden’s prom pictures, but it’s safe to say his sister wins this round—her campaign image is pretty stellar. While it may seem insane that a 14-year-old has landed a major fashion campaign, keep in mind this is the same kid that had a hit single at age 9.
Willow joins Cher in the campaign, photographed by David Sims. There is no word yet on who else might show up in the series, but on his Instagram, Jacobs states that there is still more to come. Is it weird to be genuinely excited about advertising?
