This past fall semester, for the Fashion and Beauty Communications Milestone program (basically a minor, but not quite) I'm a part of at Syracuse, I took a class on Beauty and Diversity in the Fashion Media. It was more an in-depth look at fashion photography than anything else, but one project we did near the end of the semester was a paper on the "Perfect Fashion Advertisement". My group did the Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 ad pictured below. I've obviously seen fashion advertisements many times before, but doing this project really opened my eyes to just how beautiful and creative they can be. They are almost like editorial spreads in itself. Many of the Spring 2012 campaigns have been released over the past couple of weeks, and many of them are eye-poppingly gorgeous. Some of my favorites are Chanel, Isabel Marant, Mulberry and Dolce and Gabbana, but there are so many beautiful campaigns. Check out many of them on The Cut's gallery.
