The 2012 Olympic games don’t officially begin until tomorrow, but we felt the need to start the party early. In celebration of the US Women’s Soccer team’s victory over France yesterday, we give you this image from a Bebe campaign shot by Giuliano. If only Team USA got to sport uniforms like this…

Yesterday we shot an ad campaign for Lugano Diamonds, a Newport Beach-based jewelry brand specializing in the finest quality stones. The concept was simple: elegant, sophisticated, a bit of glam. We loved watching as model Dana Stuce reclined on luxe Habité furniture to a Julie London soundtrack. We double-loved our makeup, hair and styling squad for getting that gamine eye, cascading hair-curl and shoulder-baring gown juuuust right.
Best of all? Lugano sources exclusively cruelty-free diamonds and is a member of The Kimberly Process, a United Nations effort to protect ethical stone sources. So while my heart fluttered when I tried on a 10 carat flawless pear-cut ring on set, my conscience was content.

Happy Birthday, bikini! Summer is in full effect and we’re paying homage to beach season with a tribute to our sexiest friend. Born from designer Louise Réard in Paris in 1946, the bikini changed the face of popular culture forever. In addition to making icons of actresses like Brigitte Bardot and heroines of the many Bond girls, the two-piece established Marilyn Monroe and Betty Paige as pin-up babes, inspired the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and adorned our fave supermodels from the 90s (think Tyra, Cindy, Naomi, Christy). Here’s to you, bikini! Check out some of our favorite shots from the archives below.

This is just a sneak peek. Stay tuned for more!
