It's easy, while flipping through magazines and seamlessly perfect luxury advertisements, to forget what kind of work goes into building such perfect little worlds. So here's a peek behind the scenes of the shoot of Valentino's latest fragrance ad starring a kohl-eyed Siri Tollerod, Erin Heatherton, Marloes Horst and a mirror. The song is, of course, written just for this: "Valentino Loves You" by Sophie Carpentier. It's most fun to see the comic book-like sketches and instructions detailing the shoot's order. Hop in!
Behind the Scenes With Valentino and the New York City Ballet
The New York City Ballet's new season kicks off tonight with the company's fall gala. Sadly, I'm not lucky enough to attend this time/split my dress open and flash my panties to New York's fanciest, but the NYCB's Facebook page just released a slew of behind-the-scenes images of Valentino working on the costumes--so I almost feel like I'm there. Also? The costumes are incredible.
