A few days ago I found first shots of the Zara Spring 2009 Ad Campaign with Lara Stone and fell in love with it. Not only the campaign was great, but the clothes were stunning as well. There was clearly some heavy inspiration involved as a lot of the pieces were reminiscent of this year’s Spring 2009 collections (thanks to FC@Red Carpet Fashion Awards for pointing it out). Zara channelled this year’s fashion darlings like Balmain (the first 2 dresses), Alexander Wang (grey/white pants/top ensemble) and Stella McCartney (the nude oversized blazer as previously worn by Amber Valletta).
The shoes were Balmain-esque as well. Rumor says Zara had to remove all of the rhinestone studded sandals from the shelves because they were infringing on another fashion house’s copyright. The nude lace booties remind me of Ann Demeulemeester’s Spring 2009 lace up boots.
I can’t wait to hit my Zara store this week, I’m probably going to buy the whole store empty. My favorites are the lilac draped dress, the LBD and the oversized blazer combo. And the Ann Demeulemeester knockoffs of course! Too cute.

P.S.: I ♥ Lara Stone. She’s so damn gorgeous.
