This title is a Dickens description of a March day, and I think it's the perfect description of Spring. Plus, it's from 'Great Expectations', and I'm sure I can find some tenuous link there to my great expectations for the Spring/Summer season. Apologies.
So anyway, this morning I was looking at some of the Spring 2011 campaigns and thought I'd share a few of my favourites. All images obtained here and here.

See more of this campaign, which includes various Missoni family members, Jade Parfitt, Jasmine Guinness and Juergen Teller's daughter Lara, here.
Other talking points include (but are not limited to): Gisele Bundchen's new look courtesy of Balenciaga, Mario Testino photographs January Jones in the nude for Versace, DKNY go all Sex and the City, Moschino and Juergen Teller photograph veteran Yasmin le Bon in Milan, Tamara Mellon herself stars in the new Jimmy Choo parfum campaign, Cara Delevigne for Burberry, and Freja Beha Erichsen continues to be in-demand as she strips off for Georg Jensen. Leighton Meester's Gossip Girl co-star Blake Lively has been announced as the new face of Chanel Mademoiselle bags. Oh, and Jimmy Choo are releasing a line of men's shoes - see? Phew.
I think I'm nearly caught up now. Apart from the pre-fall shows...
Ciao for now,
