Lanvin & Pitbull and 100 Years of Fashion in 100 Seconds: This Week In Viral Style

Some things are just better in motion, and this week we were reminded of that with a stylish videos that have started making the rounds online.

First up is a video of Lanvin’s Fall 2011 campaign, starring Raquel Zimmerman and Karen Elson. While we’re sure that the print ads will be in a September fashion magazine issue near you, we never would have imagined Pitbull providing the soundtrack – or Alber Elbaz popping in for an adorably off beat cameo.

Next up is a video for the Westfield Stratford City mall, which will open in East London on September 13th. The Viral Factory condensed 100 years of London fashion into 100 seconds. We imagine that between the perfectly coordinated soundtrack, dance steps and outfit changes, it actually took quite a bit more time to pull the video together.

Finally, while it’s not completely fashion related, Taiwanese animators NMA already have ideas about the style of little Bey-Z (Beyonce and Jay-Z’s future child). Video Jay-Z looks more like Reggie Bush, but that small detail aside, in less than 2 minutes we get a peek at Nicki Minaj as the nanny, Kanye West declaring Beyonce’s holy pregnancy the greatest of all time, and a little guy who can not only smoke cigars with dad, but put on a leotard while mom sings about putting a ring on it as well. In a few years, this will all come full circle and we’ll keep an eye out for the little guy or gal breaking out the synchronized moves for Lanvin’s 2031 campaign.
