Core Values. LV 2010.

This morning I was sent a teaser ad photo -- and some behind-the-scenes black and white candids -- for the new Louis Vuitton Core Values campaign for 2010.

Last year, the Core Values campaign starred a mish-mash of famous figures, like Mikhail Gorbachev, Francis Ford and Sofia Coppola, Keith Richards, Buzz Aldrin and Catherine Deneuve.

For 2010, well-known (and currently bankrupt?) Conde Nast-owned photographer Annie Leibovitz and the elegant, dashing former ballet dancer and Studio 54 regular-turned-actor Mikhail Baryshnikov are the stars, posing in Leibovitz's New York studio.

The tag line? "The journey of a star, captured in a flash."

* Note: I couldn't upload the black and white candids because the ones sent are corrupt. Sorry!

I'm Lovin' it: Daria! As in Werbowy. In the new Balenciaga campaign.

I'm Over it: Runny nose.

Music of the Day: I'm INSANELY obsessed with the OLN travel show Departures, which is going to be airing its third season this coming March. It stars Scott Wilson and Justin Lukach, a pair of twenty-something, regular (and kind of cute) guys who travel the globe from Antarctica to Zambia to Cambodia and more, documenting their personal journey with their third musketeer, Gemini-winning cameraman Andre Dupuis. The shots and editing are gorgeous, and their journey is very human, funny and touchingly emotional.

And the soundtrack is amazing, too, like Buddha Bar meets Thievery Corporation.
