Kate Winslet for St. John

The Oscar winner replaced model Karen Elson for the brand’s fall 2011 campaign.  She told  WWD, “They want to keep it looking like me and not have it look like me pretending to be a model wearing these clothes. I'm obviously not a model.”

Hailee Steinfeld for Miu Miu

The True Grit actress (and our favorite up-and-comer) made headlines when the Italian house debuted photos of the teen for their Fall campaign.

Helena Bonham Carter for Marc Jacobs

Talk about a perfect match: the actress’ kooky red-carpet style (seen here in mismatched shoes at the 2011 Golden Globes) fits right in with the designer’s off-the-wall photo shoots. (In one ad, Bonham-Carter’s face is dotted with chicken pox like circles as she sticks out her tongue)

Demi Moore for Ann Taylor

Moore replaced her fellow leggy brunette Katie Holmes as the face of this popular ready to wear women’s line.

Blake Lively for Chanel

The It girl of the moment is a lucky one, if we must say. Leonardo Dicaprio on one arm, Chanel on the other.

Gwyneth Paltrow for Coach

The actress was named global ambassador of the brand this past spring.  “I grew up in New York City and I’ve always thought of Coach as the quintessential New York brand,” Paltrow told WWD. “I’ll never forget getting my first Coach bag.”

Drew Barrymore for Neiman Marcus

Eddie Nunns, Vice President of Neiman Marcus Brand Creative, said the actress was a shoe-in for the campaign because she "possesses not only the pedigree and glamour of old Hollywood, but also the confidence and spirit of the modern-day woman—much like Neiman Marcus itself.”

Tilda Swinton for Pringle of Scotland

So nice, they asked her twice. After a successful spring campaign, the luxury knitwear brand (famous for creating the argyle pattern) tapped their fellow Scot to represent the 2011 fall/winter line, as well.

Bryce Dallas Howard for Kate Spade

Howard had his to say about the brand, “The Kate Spade offer came up and I kind of lost my mind. There's something about that brand that, from a young age, I really, really, really connected with. It was always the thing I wanted for Christmas... since I was 15 or 16.”  The pregnant actress was recently spotted shooting the fall campaign in New York City.
