Some of my favorite fashion discoveries: Marc Jacobs in Disconnect, & Coco Rocha 2x

By Joy A. Kennelly

Sometimes I receive so much good content it's hard to keep up and it takes awhile to actually find time to post everything. Since I have a few moments available today, thought I'd share a few.

In particular, an intriguing mystery film called Disconnect with people I respect like Jason Bateman, Frank Grillo, Paula Patton, Alexander Skarsgard, Max Thieriot and fashion designer Marc Jacobs who makes his film & acting debut in the upcoming dramatic thriller opening in select theaters on April 12th, 2013!

995

A hard-working lawyer, attached to his cell phone, can't find the time to communicate with his family. A couple is drawn into a dangerous situation when their secrets are exposed online. A widowed ex-cop struggles to raise a mischievous son who cyber-bullies a classmate. An ambitious journalist sees a career-making story in a teen that performs on an adult-only site. They are strangers, neighbors and colleagues and their stories collide in this riveting dramatic thriller about ordinary people struggling to connect in today's wired world. (Official blurb provided by publicist)

Watch the riveting trailer here which opens with one of my favorite songs right now: 

 

And then just because I like fun, flirty ads, two of my favorite fashion ads to date by White House/Black Market featuring the incredible dancer, Coco Rocha, including a behind-the-scenes peek at what goes into making these commercials.

WHITE HOUSE BLACK MARKET - FALL 2012

 

Model Coco Rocha takes center stage in a television ad entitled 'Alter Ego'. Performing a carefully choreographed dance routine, the multi-talented Rocha demonstrates that being a great model can sometimes mean more than just striking a pose.

For the spot she perfected her moves with the help of Broadway choreographer Laurin Latarro.  Featuring approximately 12 different head-to-toe looks in the 30 second spot - Rocha becomes the tap dance equivalent of a quick change artist.  All plays out with a surprise reveal that takes the concept to the next level.

  
The print ads and marketing images, photographed by Glen Luchford, also carry through with the dance theme. Shot on the same set at the TV spot, the images feature Rocha in various states of dance as well as some more traditional fashion poses.
 
Then, because this spot was so popular, 
Supermodel and co-host of TV’s The Face, Coco Rocha was invited back for White House | Black Market’s Spring 2013 ad campaign.

 

Grabbing the spotlight once again, Coco Rocha brings a sense of vibrancy and freshness to an otherwise static, robotic work environment. Coco dances her way through six head to toe work-wear ready looks from the White House Black Market WorkKit Collection.

This has been your lunch break. Hope you enjoyed what the publicists shared with me!

Now, back to work!:)
