61/67
Jean Paul Gaultier

66/67
Longchamp
Call us predictable, but we're partial to any advertising that includes furry, fashionable friends. Coco Rocha's charming new campaign for Longchamp features a charming pooch and stylish accessories.

Bally
"Goats and good times" could neatly summarize Bally's unusual spring campaign, starring Miranda Kerr and Julia Stegner.
