Along with the retailer's Coachella-ready wares, H&M is launching The New Icons, a collection inspired by its campaign models, Joan Smalls, Liu Wen, Lindsey Wixson, and Daphne Groeneveld. And, as you may have guessed by the source of inspiration, the clothes prove just as cool as the ladies wearing them. With a rocker edge that reminds us of Givenchy-meets-Joan-Jett appeal, and a romantic Americana slant that's more Ralph Lauren in the '90s, the latest batch of H&M clothes offers up an easy "road map" for emulating a similar brand of cool-girl styling. We're particularly drawn to the silver-embellished black vest, cream-colored ruffle lace miniskirt, and the drawstring bucket bag both Smalls and Wixson show off in the campaign. Here's your first look at The New Icons collection — available in stores O/S in early April — right this way.

Tying in with the new branding of Dior Addict: Be Iconic, the three Dior Addict perfumes have undergone a makeover, with Dutch teen Daphne Groeneveld being announced as the new face of the trio. In a series of teasers shot by Jonas Akerlund, we see Daphne and her famous pout looking flirty and fabulous on the beach and in the streets of Saint Tropez. Ooh la la! Her "smouldering sensuality combined with irresistible lightness" are definitely the perfect choice to inject some fun energy into the classic scents which also have new names: Addict Eau de Parfum (blue bottle), Addict Eau Fraîche (pink bottle) and Addict Eau Sensuelle (lavender bottle).

Tom Ford's return to womenswear was the showing was the hottest invite in the fashion industry, with only a handful of select editors invited to view his S/S collection last year. Tom's old school approach extended to his Autumn/Winter collection, and since then we've been privy to his luxe designs only via high-fashion editorials in a handful of glossies. Mr Ford has let the cat out of the It-bag, showcasing his Autumn/Winter collection via his website in the form of a pulse-rate rising, beautifully edited video of the look book's still images. Press play and see if you can tear your eyes away from his sexy designs long enough to play spot the model. Abbey Lee Kershaw and Tom Ford favourite Daphne Groenveld make flash appearances... can you see any other famous faces?
Louis Vuitton is kicking off its Autumn campaign, complete with lapdogs, classic cars, and Zuzanna Bijoch, Daphne Groeneveld and Anais Pouliot playing super-chic ladies with a serious fashion fetish.

It's polished and poised, and just a bit playful — what's your take on the first glimpse of the latest '11 campaign?
Our jaws hit floor when we saw this dark, brooding and dangerously sexy December cover of Vogue Paris. Tom Ford and Daphne Groeneveld make an incredibly stylish couple on the French masthead, as captured by super snapper duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. We had to do a double take when we first saw this, because initially we got some serous Lara Stone-age vibes from Daphne. Dontcha think? There must be something in the Dutch water that grows full lipped, buxom, goddess-like beauties! Tom Ford co-edits this Holiday edition, and had a hand in writing, photographing, styling and art directing almost everything inside. The issue will be accompanied by the 2011 Vogue Paris calendar, which gives us even more cause to dash out and buy a copy for the archives. Do you like this Lara-look-a-like cover as much as we do? Or are we a tad Tom obsessed?
