There are plenty of fashion industry milestones we look forward to (and follow closely) each year, with the spring and fall campaign seasons ranking high among them. We greatly enjoy seeing how labels decide to communicate the stories of their collections through vivid imagery — and, sometimes, with a clever celebrity casting or two. In 2015, there was no shortage of memorable campaign stars, from Joni Mitchell's turn as the face of Saint Laurent to Justin Bieber's shocking appearance alongside Lara Stone in Calvin Klein's spring campaign, with lots to talk about in between.

Though we graded the spring and fall 2015 ads right after they were released, we narrowed the pool down even further in order to bring you the best of the best. Read on for what we think were the 12 best fashion campaigns of the year, and keep your eyes peeled as the spring 2016 editions begin to roll out in the weeks ahead.
