Living and breathing for the new Versace SS13 campaign by Mert & Marcus starring none other than Kate Moss alongside Daria Werbowy and Joan Smalls. Iconic to say the least.

Donatella Versace says, “To have three glamorous and iconic women like Kate, Daria and Joan in one campaign is not an easy feat. Mert and Marcus really outdid themselves, each image is composed like a work of art.”

The campaign also features Edward Wilding, Kacey Carrig and Veit Couturier and was styled by Melanie Ward (women) and David Bradshaw (men) with art direction by Giovanni Bianco.

Kicking off 2013 with a high fashion editorial that really sets the standard is ELLE magazine. Actress Jessica Biel is featured in a story dubbed Fantastic Voyage by Thomas Whiteside alongside designers including Christian Louboutin, Nicola Formichetti, Jean Paul Gaultier, Giambattista Valli, Azzedine Alaïa, Isabel Marant, Olivier Rousteing (Balmain), Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli (Valentino) and the Maison Martin Margiela team.

Logistically the shoot must have been a nightmare, but if Biel was simply shopped into a lot of the images, then ELLE and Whiteside have done an incredible job.
