Lady Gaga stars alongside legendary singer Tony Bennett in the Holiday 2014 campaign for H&M. The dynamic duo will appear in print, online and outdoor ads, in addition to a television commercial that will debut worldwide at the end of November, just in time to put us in the holiday spirit. Gaga and Bennett’s collaborative album of jazz standards will be released September 23, and according to WWD, the commercial features a track from their upcoming album, “Cheek to Cheek.” The iconic singers find themselves in great company, as sports superstar David Beckham and supermodel turned skin care guru Miranda Kerr have both starred in TV commercials for the Swedish retailer.

Miranda Kerr Shows off H&M’s New Line and Posts Selfies Straight from the Paris Fashion Week Runway!
Mid March is bringing with it an amazing new H&M campaign with stunning Aussie model, Miranda Kerr, as its spokesperson. Annex Magazine reported in a post earlier this month that Miranda had been named the official face of H&M’s new collection, but now we have the sneak peek of the fabulous and affordable outfits that you’ll want to make a part of your wardrobe. The outfits have a perfect balance of masculine tailoring and flirty feminine touches that brings a soft touch to an edgy outfit.
Following her split for Orlando Bloom, it seems that she’s been keeping herself busy and happy with her ambassador duties. Wednesday night she appeared at H&M’s fashion week show in Paris, where she even posted a selfie on her Instagram from the front row.
Girl crush much? The gorgeous, stunning Miranda Kerr has been named the new face of H&M for their Spring/Summer 2014 campaign. They revealed the news on H&M’s Twitter posting a picture of Kerr with her face mostly covered up stating they would soon reveal the new face of H&M. A few hours later, they posted a full picture revealing Kerr. Then they took to Instagram and posted again on their profile a short video in which Kerr herself states, “Hi H&M followers, I’m Miranda Kerr and I’m the new face of H&M spring campaign. Stayed tuned for more.”
Previously having worked for Mango, Kerr is no newbie to being the face of a massive company. The sweet Aussie, who split from Orlando Bloom a few months ago, has been busy shooting for the campaign for a couple of months which means we cannot wait to see the official campaign pictures, rumored to be released in March. Either way, the hottie seems to be doing pretty well solo.
Maybe I’ll Instagram her as my #WomanCrushWednesday for tomorrow…..

Angora production has become quite the controversial matter in the fashion world. This video (warning: the video has images viewers may find distressing) sparked an immense amount of talk due to the fact that they are pulling the fur from live animals. Many companies are pulling their angora made products because of the bad rep it is getting and because PETA has been urging retailers to remove anything with angora from their shelves. Companies who have removed it are internet store ASOS, Espirit, Lindex, MQ, Topshop, Gina Tricot and H&M. H&M has even reimbursed customers who may feel discomfort knowing the truth about their angora purchases and Stella McCartney herself even claimed the news as “despicable treatment”, claiming she will never use angora again. Hopefully cruel treatment will be rectified and companies will find a more animal friendly manner of going about materials.

H&M has declared that it will be raising the wages of its workers, which had us raising eyebrows. H&M is well-known for being the go-to place when you want something cute and fashionable, but don’t want to have to empty your bank account for it. Fortunately a rep from H&M stated this week that though pay rates for the companies workers is increasing does not necessarily mean that the price of the affordable clothing will increase. He also explained there are many factors to the way a business function, the way those factors correlate with one another and this particular factor, as well as my wallet, may remain unaffected. Phew…. Good news, I can still pay my bills even if I binge shop…

Whoever said that fashion is expensive, definitely has never gone to H&M. And when things look like they can´t get any better, in fact, they can. How do we know this? That´s simple. We call it: collaborations.
After Versace, Margiela, and the amazing Anna Dello Russo collection, now it´s time for Isabel Marant to become H&M´s new favorite. The designer´s first men´s collection is ready to hit stands and every guy should go and get in line to get as many pieces as possible. Efortless, relaxed and full of freedom, that´s Marant´s style. For this collaboration, the designer created shirts with interesting cuts, skinny jeans, boots and oversized sweaters. C´mon guys! Wanna be on the best-dressed-men of the month list? Go get some Marant.

Up until recent years, campaigns would debut in magazines but more and more campaigns and collections are now being brought to us by social media for the tech savvy generation!
Here’s your peak at shearling vests and cozy knitted whites!
I am probably the biggest online shopping whore that you will ever meet. UPS and Fed-Ex can probably get to my house without a GPS now, sadly. So if you are like me, AND you live in the U.S. you know that H&M never gave U.S. shoppers the opportunity to shop through the web. Talk about first world pains. But no need to worry anymore, because H&M lovers, such as myself, can now be lazy and shop in sweats with an online H&M shopping bag.
Here is a little preview of what you will see once you enter the website and begin your online shopping spree.
