But 12 years later ellesse seem to be doing something about that.. Old school sports brand ellesse have recently opened up a pop-up store with a coffee shop in London. The shop will be open until the 3rd Aug so I hope to be able to pay it a visit before it closes! They seem to be re-branding and trying to move away from the "sporty" brand image a la adidas and moving more towards vintage streetwear/skatewear similarly to Puma.. Sounds good to me..
Oh. Dear. Although I am a fan of Rihanna's music (ish).. she is not someone I want to associate with a luxury brand like Armarni. She is replacing Megan Fox- whose style I feel compliments the brand a lot more by being kind of dark and sultry. Rihanna should be doing something a lot younger and for a much edgier designer- maybe Thierry Mugler? Anyway there is certainly no denying she has the figure for underwear!
These pictures were shot by Bruce Weber and styled by Joe McKenna.. and what a job they did. They are obviously so in-tune with each other its quite refreshing! I am slightly ashamed to admit that before seeing the pictures on StyleCaster I didnt actually know who Hailee Steinfeld was... Apparently she jumped into the spotlight after appearing in the film True Grit. Either way she obviously has a modelling career ahead as well as an acting career as she manages to look so cute and childlike in these images.. they are so simple- which is what is so unexpected from a brand like Miu Miu. Very well done- other designers.. take note.
