Inspiration / Aspiration


If you've been reading us for a while, you'll remember this photo from one of our February Fashion Week posts.  We loved Jillian Mercado's look, but her look barely scratches the surface.  We just found out (we're kinda slow) that Jillian is the Executive Editorial Director of We the Urban, "a one stop daily news source for many internet savvy fashion enthusiasts".   But that's not all.  Fashion giant Diesel featured Jillian in an ad campaign which had already come out by the time we met her.  (Didn't we tell you we're slow?)  Modest Jillian didn't tell us that then.  If we're kinda slow, maybe (we hope) our readers are too.  Below is one of Diesel's ad campaign pictures.   That's James Astronaut at her side.  They both look fabulous.

The series of Diesel ads, called REBOOT, embraces and celebrates our differences. To read more about Jillian, click here and here.  To see more of the Diesel ad campaign, click here.

Bravo, Diesel!

So far, we haven't had the opportunity to meet Jacky O'Shaughnessy, who made a splash modeling for American Apparel in 2012 (discovered at a restaurant, we're told).  Big deal, you might say, until we tell you Jacky is now 62, and American Apparel recently featured her in a lingerie ad.  Isn't she marvelous?

Here's the picture that shows up most often on the internet in the current campaign.  Maybe because it's more demure and less controversial?  (Oh, and we'd like to point out Jacky's lush lipstick.)

Kudos to American Apparel!
