Hollywood star and definitely-not-so-desperate wife Eva Longoria Parker and hubby NBA San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker get together in typical fashion brand London Fog style in its latest holiday marketing campaign.
Well, as the legend on London Fog’s site says it all… “Weather or not”… the brand seems to go all the way, whether clothes or not.
Recall the Nicollette Sheridan-Michael Bolton ad for London Fog? It’s the same philosophy here, too, except Eva is just topless, whereas the yet-to-be-housewife Sheridan posed nude.
The top-end accessories line seem bent upon shooting celebrities topless, and covered in stylish trench coats. Not that I’m complaining.
Reputed photographer Nino Munoz shot the campaign in Los Angeles, which will appear in top glossies in December.
Meanwhile, Longoria Parker said in a statement:
“It was fun to work together. London Fog is always classy and beautiful, and we knew we were in good hands for the campaign.
“The coats and bags were gorgeous; I am a huge fan of trench coats and all the London Fog trenches were amazing.”
Obviously London Fog shared their sentiments. “It was a big love fest,” said Dari Marder of London Fog, which is owned by the Iconix Brand Group.
“The creative concept was a romantic intimate moment, so it was a lot of Eva and Tony standing really close and nuzzling,” he added.
By the way, this marks the first fashion campaign where Tony and Eva appear together.

Sienna Miller and her sister Savannah Miller, designers of fashion brand Twenty8Twelve, introduced LG’s new wide screen Chocolate phone at the recently concluded London Fashion Week.
Oh well, LG was indeed the main sponsor for the Millers’ Twenty8Twelve (gosh, it’s so difficult to type! 2812 could have been easier) catwalk show.
Amid the fashion show, which was studded with celebrity glitterati — such as Anna Wintour, an editor in-chief of Vogue, Alexa Chung, TV presenter of MTV US and the worldwide supermodels, Kirsty Hume, Poppy Delevigne, Trish Goff, as well as Pixie Geldof with her sister Peaches Geldof– the innovative wide screen phone was lauded for its bold visionary style and design initiative.
Anyway, what’s the thing about a phone being ‘chocolatey’? I don’t get it. It sure looks great:
But where’s the chocolate? Unless, of course, we’re talking about Sienna Miller, who looks good enough to eat.
American songstress Lady Gaga recently teamed up with legendary artist and producer Dr. Dre and Monster, a leader in audio/video accessories, to launch Heartbeats by Lady Gaga, the latest addition to the hugely popular Beats by Dr. Dre headphone family from Monster.
Lady Gaga explains her motivation behind Heartbeats by Lady Gaga: “In the deepest hour of the night, I confess to myself three things; I would die if I was forbidden to write, forbidden to love, or forbidden to fashion. Heartbeats embody the trinity of my human-being, with one additional vow: that SOUND matters. Wear heartbeats, love each other, and celebrate the art and lifestyle of music.”
Wow. Well said. Wonder how well it will be heard. Pardon the pun.
Heartbeats by Lady Gaga are designed to give users a high-performance headphone option that literally doubles as a high-tech fashion accessory or attractive piece of jewelry, said a report.
They feature a multi-faceted, glossy surface and high-tech build materials, with a jewel-inspired earpiece cosmetic. The headphones are available in three separate versions, including a metal body with rose red jewel-shaped earpiece, metal body with all chrome jewel-shaped earpiece and black-on-black body and jewel-shaped earpiece design. The headphones are outfitted with a specially design stylish and tangle-free cable.
The new Heartbeats by Lady Gaga come in a red carrying case and an assortment of eartips designed for comfort and fit. They also feature Monster’s exclusive flat cable design that that integrates into the look and feel of HeartBeats, and also makes them ‘tangle-resistant’.
They will be available in October with different feature options in the price range of $99.95 to $149.95.
Tennis celebrity Maria Sharapova has unveiled her Maria Sharapova by Cole Haan collection of handbags and footwear at Rockefeller Center in New York City.
The triple Grand Slam winner (Wimbledon 2004, US Open 2006 & Australian Open 2008) apparently came up with her own fashion designs while she was recouping from a shoulder injury and skipped the tennis route for a while.
Sharapova’s collaboration with fashion brand Cole Haan, which was announced last year, began with sketches, mood boards, and inspirations from the tennis star. Maria infused aspects of her playful personality into every detail of the line from the polished buckles of the shoes, to the leather wrapped chain straps of the handbags.
The Maria Sharapova by Cole Haan footwear collection, featuring Nike Air technology, includes a ballet flat, an ankle-wrapped stiletto, a flat over-the-knee boot, an ankle bootie and a strappy platform sandal. Prices start at $138, going up to $328.
The handbag collection includes a small frame clutch, a lambskin hobo, and Maria’s signature chain-link satchel in a range of eye-catching colors. Each silhouette is characterized by an oversized pleating detail, creating a luxe, yet casual feel. Prices range from $248 for a convertible clutch to $428 for a lambskin hobo.
The tennis star-cum-fashion designer, who’s 6-foot-2 tall, and yet loves wearing stiletto, said:
“It’s my hope that other young women will embrace the spirit of the collection; it’s fun, chic, fashionable and most importantly, able to take you from day to night.”
“Everyone loves Maria. It’s great to be working with her and adding a new dimension to Cole Haan’s history,” said Jim Seuss, CEO of Cole Haan, a subsidiary of Nike.
Seeded 29 at the US Open 2009, Sharapova will be playing unseeded Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria, on the first round at Flushing Meadows next week.
Check out a couple of Maria’s handbag designs:

“The Rampage line is comfortable and the cuts are very feminine,” said Refaeli, 24. “It always fits perfectly to the curves of a woman’s body – I have curves and I feel really good in it!”
The fall campaign will debut in September issues of fashion and lifestyle magazines such as Elle, Lucky and Cosmopolitan as well as be featured on outdoor advertising and online at fashion and lifestyle websites.
“We were looking for a fresh new face to follow our spring campaign with Gisele Bundchen and when we met Bar we instantly fell in love with her,” said Dari Marder, chief marketing officer, Rampage.
“Bar is sweet, young, sexy and beautiful just like our Rampage customer. We look forward to a wonderful partnership.”
The Rampage campaign was shot by famed fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon at an estate in Los Angeles. Refaeli wears Rampage clothing, accessories, intimates and footwear in a variety of set ups from posing seductively in lingerie to a more innocent playful stance in sportswear for the campaign. The campaign was created by the Iconix in-house marketing team.
