Dree Hemingway gets in touch with her spiritual side for the latest campaign from Australian accessories label ManiaMania. With creative direction by designers Melanie Kamsler and Tamila Purvis, Dree is clad in black body paint dancing around in sand dunes captured by photographer David Mandelberg. ManiaMania has built an empire on fiercely unique pieces: think cocktail rings set with crystals, bold, armour-like necklaces and slim metal cuffs.

Erin Wasson has worn some of the most elaborate couture on the catwalk for Givenchy, Balmain and Valentino but she seems most in her element in a pair of shredded, cut-off denim shorts. It makes sense then that the Texan-born beauty is the face of Australian label One Teaspoon’s latest collection, whose Daisy Dukes have reached cult status amongst the fashion set. The new range, entitled Love Cats, riffs on One Teaspoon’s signature rock ‘n’ roll attitude. Low slung denim is paired with grungy, worn-in tees, leather, suede and some breezy summer dresses. Head designer Jamie Blakey and Wasson headed to Venice Beach to shoot the campaign lookbook and accompanying video, which was directed by surf filmmaker Taylor Steele. Wasson has given the label the ultimate blessing – “I’m a fan for life,” she said.

A look behind the scenes of the Miss Dior Autumn/Winter 2012 campaign. Following their Oscar-nominated movie Black Swan, actresses Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman both became faces for Dior. Kunis’ ads for the high-fashion brand were just revealed this week, while Portman posed back in 2010. Both known for their beauty, the actresses’ ads are quite different. While Portman stripped down for her photo shoot with Miss Dior Cherie, Kunis channeled the late First Lady Jackie O’s style with her classic elegant look.
