Harmony Korine, the auteur behind Spring Breakers and Kids, directed Dior's latest fragrance ad. The commercial features a model wandering around a decked-out mansion before stumbling across a secret garden where a heavily remixed version of Die Antwoord's "Enter the Ninja" drops in. The last time Korine was tapped to direct a fashion film was 2011, for Proenza Schouler. It was widely panned.

Korine's films tackle issues like poverty, mental illness, and dysfunctional families. He isn't a traditional filmmaker: His work is non-linear, experimental, and surrealist with elements of Vaudevillian minstrelsy, dark humor, and absurdism. In other words, he's never been one for mainstreamers, so it's interesting to see him so restrained. In honor of Harmony Korine, here's a roundup of other outlandish fashion films. This one's for the weirdos. Mazel.

JULIETTE LEWIS & DAFT PUNK X GAP

Let's start off simple. In 2001, when the only songs by French robotic duo Daft Punk on your radar was the house favorite "One More Time" or the meme bait "Harder Better Faster Stronger", they were tapped by Gap along with Juliette Lewis to shill jeans. Oh 2001, what a year to be alive.

If there's one celebrity's closet I'd like to peep into (or roll around on the floor of), it would be Chloë Sevigny's. Not only is this indie film queen the high priestess of downtown DIY style, she has amassed a cornucopia of fashion treasures from back in the nineties when she became the very first "It Girl" all the way to the years when she held court as an Oscar-nominated red carpet style-slayer (not to mention her collection of vintage and custom designer pieces of which, I presume, there are many crammed up in there). Thanks to Opening Ceremony, my fash-wish has come true courtesy of a filmed tour of Chloë's closet in her East Village garden apartment. Not only does this five minute vid feature Chloë wearing the black Zip-Off Godet Dress from her newly arrived Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony resort collection, it also showcases her recent haircut and color change from the longer, darker 'do she debuted on the runway for Kenzo's spring 2012 show in Paris. Oh, and did we mention her closet is frock-full of Comme des Garcons, Yves Saint Laurent, and rare photos of herself posing with Kate Moss back in the day?

Lanvin for H&M.

If you love high fashion but don't regularly spend $3,000 on a single dress, you must be just as excited as we are about the Lanvin for H&M collection that's set to drop this Saturday, Nov. 20, at stores nationwide. Alber Elbaz, the creative director for Lanvin, crafted a great collection for men and women at gotta-have-it prices. The ladies' looks include dresses, jackets, and accessories in festive gem-tone colors like fuchsia, yellow, and teal. H&M is well-known for offering affordable collaboration lines from famous designers — Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney previously designed collections — but the pieces are known to sell out fast, so get there early. To pass time before Saturday, check out our favorite looks from the Lanvin for H&M look book below.

SEE OUR TOP 3 PICKS ...

1. T-SHIRTS AND FAUX FUR
We love how many colors, textures, and shapes are going on in this one outfit! That furry jacket is such a statement piece for winter, while the graphic tee is a closet staple that can be worn alone in the summer, or under blazers and cardigans in the cooler months. Plus, we like how the model dresses it up by layering a bunch of necklaces over it — great styling idea.

Lanvin for H&M T-shirt: $39.95, Skirt: $59.95, Jacket: $149, Shoes: $99, Necklace: $29.95, Belt (worn as necklace): $19.95, Sunglasses: $19.95.

2. MELLOW YELLOW
This one-shoulder ruffle dress is the perfect party dress, and the yellow color just pops. Take a cue from this model and rock the frock with fun, colorful earrings and layered bracelets.

3. GO FOR A TUTU
This is our favorite image from the look book! As we've noted earlier, Rihanna and Katy Perry are just a couple stars who've brought the tutu look back, and we think this Lanvin for H&M dress is the prettiest and most elegant tutu we've seen yet. Plus, how stunning are those multicolor pumps?

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
