Christmas is just around the corner, and with it, a steady roll out of some of the most iconic festive campaigns by our favourite brands.
So whether you’re making a start on your holiday gifting, or browsing what’s on offer for your own wish-list, we’ve done the work for you.
Below, a round up of the most fabulous festive campaigns of the 2023 holiday season.
Elton John And Charlotte Tilbury Team Up For An Important Cause
In the dazzling images, a sequin-clad Elton stars alongside supermodels Kate Moss and Jourdan Dunn, singer Rina Sawayama, actor Micaela Jae Rodriguez, and of course, makeup mogul Charlotte Tilbury herself. Also starring are Charlotte nieces Sofia Schwarzkopf-Tilbury and Bella Broekman-Tilbury. (What is Christmas about if not family?)
This lineup of British icons has been assembled in support of the brand’s role as “the official founding beauty partner” of Elton’s AIDS Foundations’ The Rocket Fund. As part of the partnership, the brand has launched the limited edition ‘Rocket Collection’, featuring two lipstick shades, both adorned with the collection’s signature starry print, and a ‘Rock Star’ beauty bag.
Charlotte’s Rock Star! Beauty Icons Limited Edition Makeup Bag and Lip Kits, $200 from Charlotte Tilbury.
Swarovski ‘Celebrates Wonder’ With Steven Miesel And Pat McCgrath
Titled ‘Celebrate Wonder’, the mesmerising campaign features a series of unique portraits, each showcasing a different Swarovski collection: Blue Gema, Mesmera Stardut, Matrix Supernova, Punk Luna, and Hyperbola Nebula.
Speaking about the series, Swarovski’s creative director Giovanna Engelbert said, “My vision centered around the idea of women, all with distinct looks and personalities, transforming into the jewellery pieces they are wearing. Together with Steven Meisel and Pat McGrath, we have created magic in a series of images that capture the festive glamour and wonder of the holiday season.”
