You've seen the pictures from Beyonce's advertising campaign for H&M, now the video.
Besides a collection of beachwear that Beyonce already introduced in the new single 'Standing on the Sun' from her upcoming album, the pop star showed off her toned physique in a new ad for H&M.
Mrs. Carter flaunts her bod in a series of bikinis and curve-hugging beachwear, wears bright flowers in her perfectly waved hair, and sports some serious arm candy.
Donald Schneider, H&M’s creative director explains, “It’s incredibly unique to have Beyoncé for a campaign. It doesn’t get bigger than that. Of course we have to do something which excites her as well as us. We have a fantastic creative team who came up with this idea to incorporate the elements; earth, wind, fire and water – to create drama and make something just visually stunning.”

From viral videos and imagery to the creative use of Photoshop, advertisers are getting really creative. Brazilian modeling agency Star Models has recently released an eating disorder awareness campaign featuring your typical fashion sketch on the left, and models photoshopped to look like a human version of the same on the right. You might have noticed how disturbing it is.
If you're familiar with fashion illustration, you know this sort of impossibly long-legged, waify figure is absolutely standard practice for almost all designers. It's an art, and we personally appreciate it as a beautiful step in the design process. But has it gone too far? These ads do make you wonder: At what point do designers have a responsibility, as artists and also as creators of consumer products, to help foster a more body-positive society?

Based in Copenhagen, MUUSE collaborates with designers to give you well-cafted original pieces. They make sure that you get high-quality pieces.
I got two lovely silk tops. I decided to wear this silk blouse by Hellen Van Rees today (found here). I paired it with snakeprint jeans from H&M, and my Dr Martens (which are too comfy I'm wearing them most of the time now). The blouse is made of really soft silk, and it's in a really nice print.
I can't wait to show you the other top I got :)
