After the amazing red carpet from this weekend’s Golden Globe Awards, I surfed the web like a madwoman trying to find the latest from the Pre-Fall 2013 Collections & was so won over by Naomi Watts‘ regal & elegant appearance at the awards show, I knew Zac Posen, the newest judge for the upcoming season of Project Runway, was going to be featured in my next Runway Rundown post. The line pays homage to a retro 1940s style, with satin, leather, tweed, & lace overlay details in rich colors like eggplant, scarlett, oxblood, & some of the most luxe black that I’ve ever seen. The label’s effortlessly classic silhouettes & timeless structures are modeled by the always stunning Crystal Renn. Not to mention that the entire collection is sure to attract fans of the brand including Claire Danes, Lea Michele, Reese Witherspoon, Coco Rocha, & Kerry Washington!

Ad Madness: Model Crystal Renn Models For Reem Acra’s Debut Fragrance!


Fragrance ads have been getting more & more press as the weeks go by. I’ve talked lots about Blake Lively for Gucci Premiere, featured Keira Knightley for Coco Mademoiselle, & shared my love of Old Hollywood with Charlize Theron’s commercial for Dior’s J’adore which shows virtual cameos by Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, & Marelene Dietrich. Designer Reem Acra is debuting their very first fragrance, eponymous of course, featuring former plus-size model Crystal Renn, looking svelte, stunning, & sexy.

The scent, which will be sold exclusively @Saks Fifth Avenue, will hit shelves in October, exuding “orange blossom, pear, bergamot, ginger, jasmine, lily of the valley, peony, amber, cedarwood, patchouli, and warm musk,” according to Styleite. Prices for the fragrance will range from $35 – $125, & will include body lotions, shower gels, & creams. What do you think of this ad? Are you interested in trying the fragrance? Do you think Crystal Renn was a good choice to be spokesmodel? Happy Styling!
