Chanel Reigns Supreme In The Fashion Film Game With This Dreamy Video

Say what you will about (kooky/krazy/kreepy) Karl Lagerfeld, but when it comes to his creative directorial role at Chanel, the man is aces. Filmmaker Trevor Undi took Karl's vision and interpreted it into this hypnotic 2 and a half-minute video comprised of clips from the French fashion house's Paris-Édimbourg Métiers d'Art…

Watch Top Models Play Parisian Prostitutes In This Louis Vuitton Short Film

Fashion loves anything that straddles the very fine line between what is provocative and what is tasteless, and of course that includes romanticizing the blackened underbelly of society. If you don't believe me, please consider the "heroin chic" phenomenon of the mid-nineties. (Also, consider the unsettling existence of a wikiHow article called "How to…

Kate Moss Tangles With A Cartoon Snake For Balmain

Well, this is rather lovely. Kate Moss starred in Balmain's fall/winter ad campaign. Now, the brand has coupled up with Nowness to create an animated video version. In it, Moss fidgets and flops on a sofa while her hair changes color and a series of cartoon creatures accost her. A black snake slithers around…

In Model-land, 25 Is Really, Really Old

This week, she's shooting behind the catwalk curtain at New York Fashion Week to make a mini-doc for New York's The Cut blog. In this first installment, Ziff talks to girls about age…

Crystal Renn Dances In A Leotard

These days, posting about model Crystal Renn poses something of a conundrum. If we say, "She looks like she lost weight," it seems as if we're as preoccupied with her body size as all those who couldn't stop crowing about her plus-sized-ness when she was a seemingly fuller-figured girl. In any case, we think…

Fashion Video Attempts To Sell Suicide As Sexy, Fails

Ryan McGinely directed this fashion video for the South Korean brand Lewitt in which model Abbey Lee Kershaw plays the part of a woman who kills herself by throwing herself off a building. Three times. In different outfits. So, you know, it's like a suicidal fashion show. How ... creative. Frockwriter depressingly reports,…

Adidas Originals Short Is Where All The Cool Kids Are

They say that advertising is in the crapper these days, but Adidas sure seems to be onto something, at least in the realm of video campaigns, with its Adidas Originals shorts. In "The Street Where Originality Lives," a cool urban street atmosphere hosts city skater kids who go to just about the most…

Kate Moss Flashes Her Bottom For Topshop

Spring looks for Kate Moss' eponymous Topshop line hit stores this Thursday, but they hit the internet today. Though the clothes themselves are a challenge to see in the angelic light shining behind Ms. Moss, we think the video showed off exactly what it was intended to display: Kate's MILF body. And if…

Porn Star Faye Reagan Stars In Married To The Mob Fashion Movie

We like this latest entrant into the fashion video phenomenon starring flame-haired porn star Faye Reagan in the Married to the Mob, or MOB, fashion line. If you're not familiar with the brand, Married to the Mob is streetwear designed by women for women: neon leggings, message tees, shiny bombers, skinny…

Dolce & Gabbana Male Models Wrestle, Dance

Is it ever too early in the day to watch male dancers grapple in a Dolce & Gabbana video? We thinks not. Starring scantily clad dancers from the Rambert Dance Company, this fashion spot for Wonderland magazine is easy on the eyes, indeed. For a moment, I wondered what their names are, but then I…

Garance Dore Does Fashion ‘Round The World

As of late, fashion blogger and street style shooter Garance Doré has added videos to her repertoire. Many of her videos so far have focused on runway shows, the behind the scenes action, and the models strutting down the catwalk. In her most recent installment, "A Month in Fashion," she gives a peek at her…

Changing Clothes Is The New Competitive Sport

I like this Kitsuné fashion video featuring clothes from the designer's autumn/winter 2010 Ivy League line. While a soundtrack of hip tunes plays, a male mode, Nils, and a female model, Alazne, engage in competitive dressing and undressing. If only I looked like that when I took off my clothes. Sigh. [fashin]…

Return Of The Penis Pants!

Remember those Isabel Mastache penis pants from Madrid fashion week I posted about yesterday? Well, now there's video of the penis pants in action on the runway! Click through to witness one of the absolutely freakiest fashion shows to which I have ever born witness. (And, these days, that's really saying something.) Do not…

You may recognize documentary filmmaker and photographer Lauren Greenfield's work from Girl Culture, her photographic series that exposed what it's like to grow up female in America, or "Thin," her documentary on young women battling eating disorders. Now, Greenfield has taken on Fashion Week as her latest subject, seemingly using Fashio…
