Meant to convey "inclusivity and girl power," Boohoo's latest campaign has been criticized for failing to show true diversity.

Marc Jacobs has always been synonymous with cool, and his ad campaigns have always reflected it. Shot by iconic photographer Juergen Teller, who photographed all of Jacobs' campaigns up until 2014, when he refused to photograph Miley Cyrus, brought his inimitable, signature washed-out look and tongue-in-cheek attitude, making the world of Marc Jacobs seem like the only world worth living in. Now, the designer has slowly been revealing his new Fall 2015 campaign on Instagram, alluding to the fact that it will revolve around all the amazing and inspiring people that he has met throughout the years – most of them, his personal friends. So we thought it would be a perfect time to take a walk down memory lane by checking out all the luminaries that have appeared in his campaigns over the past two decades, and trying to figure out which ones will make an appearance in his new campaign.

Judging from the exuberant expression on her face, it seems that the Divine Miss M feels the same way. The famed actress and singer, who was present at the designer’s epic Americana-themed show this past September at the Ziegfeld Theater, was snapped by David Sims (and styled by Katie Grand) wearing an oversized coat featuring a retro print of a woman screaming. This season Middler joins the ranks of Sandra Bernhard and the designer’s new favorite pal Lana Wachowski. “To this day, I still credit Bette Midler (unbeknownst to her) with a large part of my foray into fashion design,” Jacobs continued in his post.

The idea of revealing the star or concept of a shoot before its official unveiling was considered to be on par with treason (and not just because there was no time to properly photo shop the subject!). But the current state of social media has changed all that, and behind-the-scenes video, while lovely, is rather an archaic way of sharing content. As a widely recognized digitally-advanced brand, Burberry understands this.

Joining the ranks of transgender model Lea T and fellow catwalker Soo Joo Park, Waterhouse (who is also known as Bradley Cooper’s ex) will make her first appearance for the hair care brand this August tied to its new Diamond Oil Glow Dry product. Perhaps her new gig will help her to work through some her hair issues. At the Redken photo shoot, the mega model recently told People, “I cut my own hair a lot … and I’m always terrible at it! Literally, thank God for my hair and makeup teams! Whenever I look half decent in a picture it’s always thanks to them.” Suki Waterhouse at her Redken shoot.

With 2014 safely behind us, it's time to look toward the future. Having already covered what happened on the Spring 2015 runway, it is that sacred time of year when fashion bibles start releasing their monster March issues that feature all of the campaigns in bloom. So far this season has a fair amount of star wattage as Kimye is kissing for Balmain, Nicki Minaj is posing prettily for Roberto Cavalli, Madonna vogued for Versace, and Cara Delevingne is making her third consecutive appearance as the face of Topshop. It was too good a lineup not to share so we've culled the best of the best for your viewing enjoyment.

She’s been modeling professionally since she was 16, and signed her first major beauty deal with Rimmel in 2009, posing for the brand alongside Kate Moss. Along with countless magazine covers and fashion campaigns, Jagger is also the latest face of Thierry Mugler Angel, the same scent her mom was the face of 20 years ago. She grew up in the spotlight with boldfaced name best friends Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse.
Fashion and beauty campaigns really stepped it up this year, featuring the coolest mix of celebrities and models young and old styled in incredibly creative ways by the most legendary photographers in the game. Whether selling a drugstore lipstick or designer handbag, they made us yearn for a piece of the action and served as inspiration for our own hair and makeup looks.
