THE BITE: An amuse-bouche of fashion news

Crystal Renn (centre) and friends for Gaultier Fall 2010. Story by Anne Pringle.

Leaked campaign
The Fall 2010 ad campaign for Jean Paul Gaultier was leaked on the web yesterday, revealing a refreshingly diverse group of facess: plus-size model Crystal Renn, Chinese model Ping Hue and French model Kelly Moirera. The pictures are stunning, but they may reintroduce questions about Renn’s possible weight loss or photo retouching that may have taken place. (NY Mag)

Unconventional ad
Tommy Hilfiger has released a new campaign featuring a dysfunctional family named “The Ultimate Tailgate.” The scenes feature a mother and father with cocktails in hand, a son who was kicked out of boarding school, and a foreign exchange student (among others). Customers can even follow the escapades of the family online on Facebook and Twitter. Guess Lacoste isn’t the only one reaching out to a younger audience. (WWD)

The scent of Gaga
The eclectic Lady Gaga may be further broadening her spectrum—not only with her line of hats with Philip Treacy—but with her own fragrance. Rumour has it that she will be partnering with Coty on the production. We can’t wait to see what she comes up with next! (Fashionista)
