Sky Ferreira for Maison Michel.

In breaking campaign news, firecracker pop star and MTV Style sweetheart Sky Ferreira is putting those angular features and hauntingly gorgeous saucer eyes to good use, appearing as a face in Maison Michel's Spring/Summer 2012 lookbook. Sky smizes for the camera alongside major names in modeling like Lindsey Wixson and Jac for the high school yearbook-themed shoot. The headwear accessories fashion house, which has outfitted the likes of Katy Perry before, is owned by Chanel, so naturally Papa Karl (as in the LEGENDARY Karl Lagerfeld) hopped aboard to snap the campaign photos! Peep the rest of Sky's schoolgirl looks after the jump!
Tavi Gevinson and Cyndi Lauper for UNIQLO.

This colorful Uniqlo campaign could not be coming at a better time. With the climbing temperatures and sunny skies, we are definitely coming down with a case of SPRING FEVER! While I suppose this candy-hued campaign starring Rookie editor Tavi Gevinson and Cyndi Lauper isn't curing it per se (OK, it's totally amplifying it), we couldn't be more welcome to see bold flashes of color and slip into a pair of these saturated skinnies. The two bold ladies, along with a grip of models, show their *achem* True Colors for the Japanese clothing brand's colored jeans AND the recently released Orla Kiely collab!
Lenay Dunn and The All-American Rejects for American Rag.

Faithful MTV family, our girl Lenay Dunn has scored another sweet gig! The totally adorable 10 On Top host has been nabbed up by American Rag for Macy's as its new "It" Girl! But this esteemed fash status won't be all hair and makeup and photo shoots for Miss Dunn. She's ALSO serving as a correspondent for the brand's Ragged Magazine. First band on her bill? The All-American Rejects.
Michelle Williams at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for Boy. by Band of Outsiders.

We are smitten with two very specific things: Boy. by Band of Outsiders and Michelle Williams. Put the two together for spring 2012, and we're in full body shutdown mode. As we're about to fall down the magical rabbit hole that is New York Fashion Week starting, oh, tomorrow (yes, it's already here, folks!), we're thrilled that it all kicks off with this new campaign from the Los Angeles-based clothing line. Band of Outsiders always chooses someone special to front its latest collection (like Rupert Grint and Tom Felton or Kirsten Dunst), and it was only a matter of time before Ms. Williams made her way onto the brand's vintage Polaroid film. Fitting together like a match made in diffused, early '60s Jean Seberg-esque heaven, we're completely in love with everything about this. Also, OMG, TOILE.
Katy Perry for GHD.

By now we are WELL versed on Katy Perry's ultra glam GHD campaigns. The David LaChapelle-shot British haircare company ads never fail to impress. We've seen Katy's locks transform from roaring '20s pin curls to an 1980s permed 'do, so you'd think they would've covered all hair terrain by now. Nope! They've left an entire area of haircare untouched—the *gasp* underwater world. KP transformed into a dazzling mermaid for her latest campaign, in which she shows off her long, luxurious, side-swept purple locks against a stormy, Brooklyn Bridge backdrop. Katy sported teal green and banana yellow eyeshadow with mega-long lashes and bright coral lips, but, um, can we please talk about that out-of-this-WORLD glittery ensemble paired with her glowing skin? Kay, thanks.
Have you seen Justin Bieber's new commercial for Proactiv yet? The one that quickly reminds you of his intermediate period of Jimmy Neutron hair betwixt his sandy blonde and chestnut brunette eras of swooped bangs? You know, that brief period of steampunk and band jackets? Well, it looks like pop's current golden boy managed to fit in a few shoots with skincare line Proactiv in between promoting a Christmas album and smooching his girlfriend. In the official new commercial Biebs drops by some fans' houses to hand-deliver a year's supply of the face-clearing formulas. (ADFKLAGJDFGLL!!!!!!!!!) *deep breaths*
Beth Ditto for MAC Cosmetics.

Let's get right to it: We love Beth Ditto. When she's not 'sploding forth with musical melodies courtesy of both a solo career and her band Gossip, she's frolicking with the fashion folk (like on Jean Paul Gaultier's runway) or regaling us all with her spot on makeup game. She's the real deal, folks! Remember that time Beth stole our hearts at the MAC Fashion's Night Out party? Perhaps that was a precursor to the latest news that she's collaborating with MAC on a makeup collection that will debut in June. We don't have to go on and on about it (*dips pen in inkwell*), but we will because this is crazy exciting.
Lea Michele for Candie's.

That's right, y'all! Lea Michele is officially the new face of Candie's. Lea follows in the footsteps of former Candie's Girls Britney Spears and Vanessa Hudgens as part of the brand's history of triple-threat spokesladies. Whether casting multitalented frontwomen as their brand reps is a conscious thing or not, it's pretty much inarguable that Glee is right up the same teenage singing and dancing dramedy vein as High School Musical, and of course, we all remember when Brit tried her hand at acting in Crossroads.
Max Irons in New York on Jan. 19.

When we found out that actor Max Irons (yep, the son of Jeremy Irons) was the new face of Macy's INC, we pored over his spring/summer campaign images and pined for the chance at seeing that chiseled jaw in person. So when we were invited to meet and interview Max about his new modeling gig, we fired up our digital recorders, scrawled a slew of questions in our oh-so-official journo notepad, and immediately hoofed over to The London Hotel on a crazy-cold Thursday morning. Ushered into the all-marble lobby, we were ferried up to the 50th floor in an elevator lined with mirrors where we could panic-fix our wandering liquid eyeliner and fix our damp hat hair because, you know, smudged makeup and matted follicles are the ONLY thing standing in the way of making Max OURS.
Ashley Benson and Lucy Hale for Bongo.

We may be smack-dab in the middle of presidential primaries, but the term "campaign news" has a double meaning around this neck of the woods. We're talking, of course, about fashion ads and the changing of hands (or faces, rather) that goes along with them. The latest marketing move is brought to us by Bongo, who has switched in the lovely Ashley Benson and Lucy Hale as the brand's front ladies. The Pretty Little Liars stars replace former face and MTV homegirl Audrina Patridge, and while our allegiance to Audrina is pretty much written in blood, we can't deny that Ash and Luc are totally smokin' in these new ads.
