I’ve switched the MQ and added more HQs of the Fall Campaign Sophie did for Karen Millen. Enjoy!
Miscellaneous > Karen Millen’s Fall Campaign (2014)
Over the past year and a half, British-based retailer Karen Millen has successfully implemented a major rebranding transformation to appeal to hip, younger customers, both in the U.K. and worldwide. Following the recent openings of two major flagships (one in Knightsbridge and the other on Fifth Avenue here in Manhattan), the contemporary label kept up its momentum last week by teasing the trailer to its new Fall ’14 campaign video, titled The Journey, featuring a mysterious, red-haired leading lady, which elicited the response: “Who’s that girl?”
Today, the full film debuts here on Style.com, where KM is revealing none other than up-and-coming actress Sophie Turner (who is best known for her role as Sansa Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones) as its face of the season. The brand assembled a creative dream team for the project, including director-photographer Glen Luchford; stylist Katy England; and It Brit models Rosie Tapner, Lara Mullen, and Brogan Loftus, who explore the vibrant East London neighborhood alongside Turner, wearing pieces from the latest collection. “The idea behind the campaign is to bring our brand world and our woman to life. It is designed to give an evocative snapshot into the energy and creativity of London, where our inspiration is drawn from and the KM atelier is based,” explained Gemma Metheringham, KM’s chief creative officer. “The KM woman has both style and substance: She’s memorable, with a strong character. Sophie is not only very talented, but she also has a great personality and powerful energy, in addition to being incredibly beautiful.”
To coincide with its #KMTheJourney campaign, the retailer will also host a pop-up at its Brompton Road location for six weeks beginning September 1. There, it will offer a curated selection of 15 statement-making fall coats that shoppers can customize in a variety of luxurious fabrications. Below, Turner took time out of her busy filming schedule (in addition to currently shooting season five of GOT in Belfast, Ireland, the talented 18-year-old will also appear in two forthcoming films, Barely Lethal and Alone) to chat with Style.com about her Karen Millen campaign, personal style evolution, and more.
One of the benefits of being discovered on a hit TV show is that a chance at a significant movie career is usually in the cards. Actually, it usually only occurs with talent on show that hits the pop culture lexicon. In this case, “Game of Thrones.”
Sophie Turner has spent the last four years on “GoT” playing Sansa Stark and as any loyal viewer can tell you, she’s been put through the ringer. She’s seen her father beheaded (poor Ned), been engaged to a mad king against her will, was almost raped and then forced to marry the show’s most popular character, Lord Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), who doesn’t happen to be that popular in King’s Landing. Those key dramatic moments, among others, is just one reason Turner has come to the attention of casting directors, producers, international financiers and movie directors. She’s got talent that’s ready to be explored in other projects. The first of those new films, “Another Me,” hits theaters in select markets today, but let’s get to what all “GoT” fans want to hear about first: season five.
Turner spoke to HitFix Thursday from Belfast where she’s in the middle of shooting the current “GoT” season. She’s expected to continue production until the middle of December, but notes ” I mean it’s very unpredictable because there are so many parts on ‘Game of Thrones.’ If someone gets injured? The schedule can just like totally flip and I could be shooting a lot longer or a lot shorter.”
The 18-year-old actress obviously wasn’t going to spill specific details about the upcoming stretch, but did discuss how she’s stopped reading the novels in preparing for each new season.
The gallery has been updated with posters, stills and behind of Sophie in Another Me.
Even though she’s been acting since the age of 3 (according to her Wikipedia bio), the career of 18-year-old Sophie Turner really jumped leaps and bounds when she joined the cast of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” as Sansa Stark, the eldest daughter who has literally been put through hell over the course of four seasons of the George R.R. Martin adaptation.
Two years ago, after finishing the third season of “Game of Thrones,” Turner was hired as the lead in Spanish filmmaker Isabel (My Life Without Me) Coixet’s adaptation of Cathy Macphail’s Another Me, a dark thriller in which she plays Fay, a teenage girl who starts to suspect something when a mysterious girl who looks just like her seems to be turning up whenever she’s not around.
Being a part of such a hit television show certainly helped her get an audition with Coixet, who hadn’t previously done a movie with such a young cast. Turner really liked the script when she got it through her agent but she wasn’t sure if she got the job after auditioning for Isabel. “It took two months before I found out I got the job. It was amazing, I was so excited. It was very short and I really thought she didn’t like me or that everyone in that room didn’t like me, but it turns out I think they did. Every audition that I walk out of where I think I nailed it, I never get that job, ever.”
Sophie has taken her Challenge. See it in three videos. Click on each image to see its video reference.
The #IceBucketChallenge is a “campaign” stars are doing on the web and you can have more information about it on the following blog.
