Happy Good Friday, everyone! We're making like the rest of the country, and taking a highly-anticipated long weekend to rest our weary bones (flop on the couch and catch up on Girls), rehydrate (sip cocktails) and help out the economy (buy hundreds of tiny Cadbury chocolate eggs). That said, this week just past has been pretty great, too! We welcomed a new team member, Steph — she's our new health and beauty writer and you can meet her in this gallery — Ali and Marisa put their styling caps back on and had a go at the beautiful new Zimmermann range, Alison got in front of the camera for Dior (just for laughs!), Jess hit up a film screening and her first-ever yoga class and Gen kept Heath Ledger's memory alive in a charitable way. There was plenty more keeping us busy — click through to see it all, and happy Easter!
Tying in with the new branding of Dior Addict: Be Iconic, the three Dior Addict perfumes have undergone a makeover, with Dutch teen Daphne Groeneveld being announced as the new face of the trio. In a series of teasers shot by Jonas Akerlund, we see Daphne and her famous pout looking flirty and fabulous on the beach and in the streets of Saint Tropez. Ooh la la! Her "smouldering sensuality combined with irresistible lightness" are definitely the perfect choice to inject some fun energy into the classic scents which also have new names: Addict Eau de Parfum (blue bottle), Addict Eau Fraîche (pink bottle) and Addict Eau Sensuelle (lavender bottle). See the campaign imagery and some stills of the teaser videos now.
Kate Moss proved she's still got it when she nabbed the Vogue Eyewear ads from Gisele Bündchen, and now she's gone and landed another campaign, this time for Christian Dior. Well, so the rumour mill is saying. (Please be true.)
Word on the street is that Miss Moss will be the new face of a lipstick from the House of Dior. Two things lend this story to be true: Kate has been wearing a LOT of lipstick lately, and the über model was spotted wearing a Dior lipstick to the Paris Spring '11 Dior show last month, NOT a Rimmel one, despite being a long-term ambassador of the London brand. Oopsie. Still, we commend her colour choice — Dior Addict Charmed Pink. Totes pretty and Summer BBQ-ery. Would you like to see Kate Moss for Dior again? Me, yes.
