Kate Moss stars in the first fashion 3D movie

I don’t know how I let this one slip by, but here is the news for those of you who missed it too. Kate Moss recently starred in the world’s first fashion 3D movie, KM3D-1 in collaboration with AnOther magazine.

KM3D-1

Artist and filmmaker Baillie Walsh created the short 3D film who previously worked with Moss on a hologram for Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2006 show.

In the film, Moss is depicted in an almost goddess-like manner, thanks to the stylings of Jerry Stafford. Using state-of-the-art Phantom cameras, Moss was captured at 1,000 shots per second, which allowed the film to be slowed down to a speed at which a slow movement is almost undetectable.

Kate appears frozen in time, before she launches a handful of shattering diamonds at the camera. This film is truly beautiful and the 3D technology makes for a more mystical viewing – you can view it here.

I right there with you Lily! These stylish laptops are only available at the Lucy in Disguise store (10-13 King Street, Covent Garden London, WC2E 8HN). Price has not been specified yet but the normal SF310 costs around £800, so expect it to be a little over that.

Elizabeth Hurley turns on the 3D show for Breast Cancer Awareness at Harrods

On Tuesday last week, British beauty  Elizabeth Hurley paid a visit to Harrods in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness month, and it was quite a show!

This was an event in honour of both for the Breast Cancer Awareness charity and for Estée Lauder, to raise awareness and contributions for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Hurley, who is the brand ambassador for Estée Lauder and ambassador for Breast Cancer Awareness, pushed the button which turned the famous Harrods facade pink in a spectacular 3D Global Illumination ceremony.

All viewers were given pink 3D glasses and saw the skies turn pink and strewn with the dazzling Breast Cancer Awareness emblem, the pink ribbon.

Hurley wore a gorgeous one-shoulder dress – in pink  of course – and met customers and signed purchases from the exclusive Estée Lauder Pink Ribbon Collection 2010.

Jean Pierre Le Calvez, vice president of marketing at HP, said:

“The Paparazzi campaign aims to capture the vibrant lifestyles of young, design conscious consumers and showcase how our style portfolio puts them centre stage and helps them perform.”

The star models of this campaign, and by models I mean laptops,  include the HP Mini 210, the HP Pavilion dv6, the HP Pavilion dm4, the HP Envy and the famous HP Vivienne Tam Edition notebook – the one that took the fashion world by storm in the spring of this year.

It is a very glamorous campaign, that shows technology as the latest fashion accessory, which isn’t far off the mark. I mean how many stars have you see out and about clutching their shiny new iPads,  using them as shields from their camera wielding stalkers?!

HP is also advertising a trade-in alongside this campaign, whereby you can trade in your old notebook and receive a full £150 back against any qualifying new HP notebook PC.

This is obviously subject to terms and conditions which you will find on the HP site along with the rest of the shots and a “making of” video.
