Léa Seydoux & Michael Pitt to Star in Fall Rag & Bone Campaign
Though Kate Moss has fronted Rag & Bone for two seasons, the brand is going in a different direction. French actress Léa Seydoux has been tapped as the face of the fall ads. Rag & Bone will also unveil their first men’s campaign, which will feature “Boardwalk Empire” actor Michael Pitt, who previously starred in the Prada spring 2012 campaign. The new Rag & Bone ads were shot by Glen Luchford.
Dolce & Gabbana’s Lawyer Asks for Full Acquittal
Lawyer Massimo Dinoia asked a judge for a full acquittal of his clients Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. They have been charged with tax evasion along with five other people. Dinoia asked Judge Antonella Brambilla to dismiss all the charges because there was no case to proceed.
In late May, prosecutor Gaetano Ruta demanded that Dolce, Gabbana, and board member and general director Cristiana Ruella be sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison. Ruta claims that the only purpose in selling the Dolce & Gabbana brands to Luxembourg-based company Gado Srl in 2004 was to avoid paying taxes.

British actor Robert Pattinson is the new face of the Dior Homme fragrance. The campaign will only be seen in Europe, except the U.K., and Asia, excluding China and Japan. The print ads will debut in foreign newspapers in the fall and in the September issues of international magazines. The television commercial, which was shot in NYC, will be released in September as well. It will have 60-second and 80-second versions.
