Every Chanel Coco Mademoiselle campaign has a method, writes Elle. "There is always a tryst, then a twist -- the guy never gets the girl" I love to think it wouldn't be a Coco Mademoiselle commercial if she didn't leave the man in the end. 'Goodbye, I'm on to the next'—I like that," Keira Knightley, the face of the fragrance since 2007, continues.
Knightley returns as the face of 'Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense', described as a warm fragrance with notes of patchouli, tonka bean and vanilla. Mario Testino is behind the lens for Coco's latest adventure.
Hours after a Saturday morning report on The New York Times about the very significant and growing number of accusations against Bruce Weber and Mario Testino, Condé Nast's Anna Wintour issued a statement that the magazines will not commission any new work with the two men "for the foreseeable future." Terry Richardson was previously banned in October.
The Telegraph wrote today that Mario Testino, the front runner to photograph the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle given his long and close relationship with the royal family, was no longer under consideration.
"Today, allegations have been made against Bruce Weber and Mario Testino, stories that have been hard to hear and heartbreaking to confront," Wintour wrote. Fashion industry insiders described the industry icon as being deeply upset.
"Both are personal friends of mine who have made extraordinary contributions to Vogue and many other titles at Condé Nast over the years, and both have issued objections or denials to what has emerged. I believe strongly in the value of remorse and forgiveness, but I take the allegations very seriously, and we at Condé Nast have decided to put our working relationship with both photographers on hold for the foreseeable future."
Brands Michael Kors, Stuart Weitzman issued statements confirming that they will not work with Testino in the future. Burberry made the same pledge, although it hasn't work with Testino for a year. A spokesperson for Ralph Lauren, which frequently uses Weber to shoot its ad campaigns, said, “The allegations reported in the recent New York Times article are completely contrary to our values, and to our commitment to creating an environment where our employees and outside partners feel welcome, safe and can perform at their best. We will not do business with anyone who behaves in a way that compromises this commitment.”
Condé Nast also issued new guidelines for working with models appearing in their publications, and we will publish those guidelines separately. It's noteworthy that the organization again raised the age of its editorial models from 16 to 18.
Super talent and athlete Serena Williams covers the February 2018 issue of Vogue US. Baby daughter Alexis Olympia -- called Junior by dad, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, -- debuts as the youngest Vogue cover girl ever.
Determined to win 25 Grand Slam victories (she now has 23), Serena was forced to withdraw from the Australian open, due to a host of medical complications associated with her daughter's birth. Vogue covers those events in detail, and they were formidable. The Williams comeback is now scheduled for March, with Serena determined to best Margaret Court's all-time record.
The tennis superstar is instilling her well-documented determination in her four-month-old baby. “Women are sometimes taught not to dream as big as men. I’m so glad I had a daughter. I want to teach her that there are no limits.”
Mario Testino captures the entire Williams gang -- mother, sisters and new husband -- in a giant pajama party.

Life in Trumplandia needs every shot of positive adrenalin that we can get. Imagine waking up on Sunday to find Trump calling you a "hater and a fool" because you are genuinely concerned about Russian involvement in the US election. Adding insult to injury, our illiterate president writes " There always playing politics . . . " rather than the correct "They're always playing politics . . . ". It's exhausting, frankly.
The creative genius Pharrell Williams digs deeply into his post 2016 election soul as an avid Hillary Clinton supporter, reflecting on life in Trumplandia and his evolving brand of activism. Then Pharrell lights up the pages of Vogue in this Mario Testino editorial styled by Lucinda Chambers featuring Afrodita Dorado, Dilone, Lineisy Montero, Janaye Furman, Alton Mason, Samile Bermannelli, Aiden Curtiss, Aya Jones, Selena Forrest, Joan Smalls & more.
