Miu Miu enlisted a team of it-girls for its Fall/Winter 2018 campaign. The handpicked faces include Adwoa Aboah, Rowan Blanchard, Georgia May Jagger and Elle Fanning to name a few. The stills shot by Alasdair McLellan feature each model in a picturesque setting donning gaudy clothing, accessories and handbags. Titled “The Conversation,” the imagery follows a theme that urges viewers to imagine the talks, music and happenings in the numerous settings.
The bold dresses, matching sets and outerwear pieces are reminiscent of the Victorian era due to their ostentatious cuts and patterns used. For the hair, the models wear overdone, vintage-inspired beehive updos which stand out amongst the clothing. Additionally, the footwear is worth noting as each shoe shown provides a unique contrast to the cold-weather pieces. Adwoa’s sister Kesewa Aboah also appears in the campaign. In total, the campaign provides a look into luxurious sitting rooms.

Sade New Album Coming Soon stuart matthewman
Thanks to longtime Sade collaborator Stuart Matthewman, we have confirmation of new music from the legendary R&B artist. In a new interview, Matthewman confirms that “we’re working on a new album. … When we’re happy, then we’ll let everyone else hear it.” Having not released a record since 2010’s Soldier of Love, Sade Adu and the rest of the band have earned a reputation as perfectionists content to let their hard work speak for itself: “[Sade’s] not interested in the fame or any of that [other] stuff,” Matthewman affirms. “She likes to put out art. … The record company knows there’s no point in nagging us or giving us deadlines.”
Most recently, Sade debuted her first new song in 7 years, “Flower of the Universe.”

Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather Rematch 2018 boxing fight of the century
Manny Pacquiao has challenged Floyd Mayweather Jr. for a rematch of the 2015 “Fight of the Century,” which saw Mayweather defeat the Filipino boxing legend by unanimous decision.
“Mayweather? If he decides to go back to boxing then that is the time we are going to call the shots,” Pacquiao told reporters after claiming the WBA welterweight title against Lucas Mathysse via TKO. “I have the belt, so it’s up to him. If he wants to come back in boxing, let’s do a second one.”
Mayweather currently holds an undefeated record of 50-0 and hasn’t fought since his lucrative match against Conor McGregor in August 2017. Pacquiao, on the other hand, is looking to a long list of potential opponents. “Yes, that’s a potential opponent: Amir Khan. There’s a lot of potential opponents there, like Lomachenko, there are so many fighters that have potential to be my opponent next.”

This new partnership however, will see her collaborate further on campaigns celebrating both adidas’ new silhouettes and classic sneakers, as well as apparel. Discussing the new creative role, Baldwin stated:
“I’m so excited to be adidas and JD’s first ever Style Creator. Creativity is what drives me- I love starring in campaigns but being able to direct and have creative control is what I am most passionate about. I’m so inspired by UK style, its where so many trends originate, and I want my work to be a real fusion of my favourite parts of UK, LA and New York street style culture. I cannot wait to share what I have planned for you guys!”
