1. Chloé

Swoon.

We're 99% certain that Sigrid Agren is the woman every woman wants to be, and this campaign makes it seem like having that Chloé jacket will transform anyone into a Sigrid-like beauty. Chloé is known for truly beautiful clothes, and this shot is selling that to us and so much more. Other shots star equally enchanting models Malgosia Bela, Arizona Muse and Zuzanna Bijoch.

Overall, the campaign presents Chloé as a lifestyle, not just a brand. And that's what sells.

2. Lanvin

We were a bit off put by last season's cat fight ads, but this season's Lanvin ads have really toned it down. Raquel Zimmerman and Karen Elson dance awkwardly in a Wes Anderson-eque setting. The images are strange and uncomfortable, but the reason we'll stand behind them is because the clothes look gorgeous and the message is clear. Even if the girl standing next to you is a supermodel in the same pose and a similar Lanvin dress, you'll both look stunning and unique. That's a message we can support.

3. Prabal Gurung

This is Prabal Gurung's first ad campaign, and it's set for an internet-only launch.

Still the Daniel Jackson shot images of Julia Saner are so gorgeous, we wish we could see them in print. It's dark and dramatic, and quite unique amidst fall's crop of clear, pop-hued ads.

4. Roberto Cavalli

These Cavalli ads are just so right, even though you really can't go wrong with Karen, Natalia, Mariacarla, and Mert and Marcus. The composite floral background and flowing leopard dresses present a Cavalli reality that's not all skin and sex. The whole campaign has a little more attitude than seasons past and will definitely motivate women to get into Cavalli boutiques.

5. Hugo Boss Orange

This season Hugo Boss Orange presents us with a campaign featuring Lily Donaldson, Dree Hemingway, Eniko Mihalik, and Jon Kortajarena and some other hot male models hanging out around Amsterdam.

Don't you just want to jump in and have fun with these models? (If you don't yet, watch this video and you will) From boat rides to a little puppy, this campaign has it all, and it's all fun. This happy Hugo Boss personality is something we could really get used to.

6. Michael Kors

Hello male models! And hey there Karmen Pedaru.

This beautiful bunch is ready to dance all night at Studio 54. In a time of economic woes, a little partying will do everyone good. We'd give about anything to be in the back of a limo with this bunch.

7. Moschino

At a lecture a few years back Juergen Teller said that he doesn't even need to look into the lens of his camera anymore to know what's in the frame. He's worked with the same camera for so long that he just knows.

His proficiency shows in these Moschino ads. The photographs are beautiful and new - this is not your mother's Venice. Plus Irina Kulikova looks like the world's chicest gondola captain, which is a a nice spin on this nautical trend that's been permeating street fashion for a while now. Gentleman, put away your topsiders and get yourself a girl in some Moschino. It's a way better look.

8. Dsquared

Dsquared's campaigns of yore have always been a little over-the-top. Models in blinders and cages, anyone?

That's why we're overjoyed to see the brand banking on the sheer quality of their items for the fall campaign. Model Emily Baker looks perfectly disheveled, which is perhaps one of the hardest looks to achieve. I'm certain that this campaign will put DSquared basics back on the map, like the classic white shirt and leather jacket seen here.

9. Derek Lam

Derek Lam's fall campaign is a little reminiscent of the Theyskins' Theory resort pics, right? I'm talking about the angle and the sleekness of the looks.

Coincidence? Probably. But our only complaint is that we want more. More Aline, more photos, more looks, more Derek Lam.

10. Missoni

We love Juergen Teller's Moschino images, but these Missoni ones just seem to have missed the mark.

The baggy styling and against-a-tree pose is very Marc Jacobs, and considering that Juergen has shot every Marc campaign ever, it's a comparison Missoni must have known would be made. So why go along with it then?

11. Fendi

Anja and Baptiste play parents in Fendi's fall campaign. This photo's composition is an obvious nod to Velasquez, ok, we know Karl has arty inspirations, but doesn't this family just seem so fake? (I'm not just talking about their wigs, but their whole attitude.) The children seem totally out of place and Anja and Baptiste aren't the most convincing couple. Most families that can afford Fendi would want a portrayal that's a little more cohesive.
