Kiernan Shipka has been tapped to star in the new campaign for Fendi’s Baguette handbags.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina actress appears in the latest instalment of the Italian label’s #BaguetteFriendsForever series alongside her filmmaker pal Christian Coppola.

Showcasing the new Baguette designs in the video advertisement, Kiernan, 20, is seen daydreaming in a hotel room while surrounded by the purses, before hearing a loud honk outside of her window. Waiting for her on a scooter is Christian, ready to head to the top tourist sites in the city.

“Together they explore Rome eating gelato in the typical narrow lanes of the city, tossing a coin in the iconic Trevi Fountain and make a wish, all the way up to Palazzo Della Civilta Italiana, Fendi’s headquarters, where they play along its arches and statues,” a Fendi representative shared. “The Baguette strings along with the two best friends while discovering the city with its different versions, from the FF embossed large and mini Baguette in pink and blue pastel shades to the newly added Men’s one in brown leather with a surprising touch of the Nano Baguette worn as a belt.”

A series of still images show Kiernan and Christian posing together on a scooter and in front of the Trevi Fountain.

The iconic Baguette bag was first launched by designers at the fashion house in 1997.

Fendi reissued the Baguette at the spring/summer 2019 Milan Fashion Week show to much fanfare, with the #BaguetteFriendsForever campaign featuring Sarah Jessica Parker, influencer Caroline Daur, and model Ebonee Davis, rolling out a short time later. Amanda Seyfried and Emma Roberts also fronted a Baguette campaign, filmed inside the Fendi flagship store on New York’s Madison Avenue, which was released in June.

Mad Men co-stars January Jones and Kiernan Shipka have reunited for Rodarte’s new lookbook.

The actresses, who played mother-daughter duo Betty and Sally Draper on the hit TV series, which ran from 2007 until 2015, have been tapped by designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy to appear in the spring/summer 2020 campaign for their fashion label.

Posing in front of a painted landscape background, one portrait shows January and Kiernan standing side-by-side while sporting strapless silk floral gowns and with white pearls dotted throughout their hair, while another sees them posing in dramatic ballgowns.

Taking to Instagram to upload the images, January wrote alongside one of the snaps, “Casual family portraits are so back in.”

And the photographs caught the attention of the pair’s former Mad Men co-stars, with Christina Hendricks, who played Joan Holloway, noting, “When was this?!! So dreeeeeeemy (sic),” and Alison Brie, who portrayed Trudy Campbell, posting, “HOLY. S**T.”

However, January and Kiernan aren’t the only celebrities to appear in Rodarte’s latest imagery, with actresses Kirsten Dunst, Margaret Qualley, Gabrielle Union, Lili Reinhart, Helena Howard, Rowan Blanchard, and Yalitza Aparicio, as well as Haim musicians Este, Danielle, and Alana Haim, rapper Kilo Kish, and singer-songwriter King Princess also featuring.

The photoshoot was helmed by photographer Daria Kobayashi Ritch and styled by Shirley Kurata and Ashley Furnival. Regarding the decision to unveil portraits rather than a runway presentation, Laura told Vogue that they wanted to merge their interests in fashion and art.

“As we’ve become more confident and comfortable in our design voice and really seeing what our personality is within the design world, it’s been really nice to think artistically about creating a world behind each collection,” she shared.

Fendi has honoured the late Karl Lagerfeld with its fall/winter 2019-2020 couture show.

The German couturier, who had served as the Italian label’s creative director of fur and women’s ready-to-wear since 1965, died at the age of 85 in February.

Accordingly, menswear and accessories designer Silvia Venturini Fendi took the opportunity to honour the godfather of fashion at the latest high-end presentation, which was held at the Palatine Hill and overlooked the Colosseum in Rome on Thursday night.

Titled The Dawn of Romanity, and with the likes of Susan Sarandon, Zendaya, Jason Momoa and wife Lisa Bonet, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Zoey Deutch, and Kiernan Shipka, in attendance, Fendi told editors at Vogue.com that the range celebrates the relationship between Fendi and the capital city, as well as Lagerfeld’s groundbreaking vision and techniques.

“(His legacy includes) his attitude to break rules and push boundaries,” said Silvia, adding that for Lagerfeld, “Nothing was ever impossible, and that’s what we all tried for.”

To open the presentation, a model walked the runway in a white suit with blouse-like sleeves, a gauzy shirt, and carried a fur-look handbag. A retro theme was immediately apparent in the ensembles that followed, with Silvia opting for a palette of brown, tan, white, and light blue, as well as a mix of textures, such as dresses matched with furry coats. Sam McKnight was in charge of the hair, with each model sporting a round bob wig dyed to match their outfit, with the colours inspired by the pinks, greys, and apricots of Roman marbles.

Highlights of the collection included a dress with striped panels made from black velvet which was modelled by Candice Swanepoel, a black gown with ruffled skirt featuring deep-V neckline, a black dress with geometric panels worn by Liu Wen, as well as a long silky dress with ’60s-style marble print as modelled by Kaia Gerber.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Kiernan Shipka prefers casual shoes over pricey designer footwear.

The actress has no desire to wear uncomfortable, heavy heels, preferring comfort over the latest high-end fashions.

“I don’t wear the Balenciagas – they literally feel like ankle weights, and are a little too big for functioning,” she tells InStyle, admitting she would rather put her funds towards something other than expensive shoes.

“They’re also a very expensive shoe, and I think I’d spend money on something else,” she shares. “But, honestly, I’m all about a sneaker, or a big shoe, or a silly looking shoe. Bring it on!”

Her role on the hit Netflix series allows her to show off dark retro looks and she notes the latest episodes of the series showcase even edgier looks for her magical titular character.

“The fashion definitely gets edgier and darker, and I think that’s something that people are going to dig,” she adds.

One aspect of Sabrina’s style that isn’t changing is her signature black headband.

“It’s not going anywhere,” she jokes. “I think it’s glued down to her head. There are a couple of scenes where it’s not on – but just a couple.”

Off screen, Shipka’s style preferences have earned her praise from celebrity stylist Ashley Streicher, who likes the blonde beauty’s forward-thinking looks.

“She actually has a very fashion-forward mindset,” the style guru tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I take cues from her. She’s one of my only clients that tells me what to do. I feel like she always has a really good direction.”

Kiernan Shipka was a fashion force to be reckoned with at the Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday (23Mar19), rocking up in a bow-tiful Miu Miu dress.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina actress looked stunning in her cute but elegant dress from the label’s Pre-Fall 2019 line, which featured an embellished top with a cutout on the torso, a black bow on the waist and an ivory pleated skirt.

Kiernan completed her look with black accessories and stud earrings, and wore her blonde hair in a high bun. Inside the awards ceremony, held at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, the 19-year-old star posed with fellow stars including To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before actress Lana Condor, who looked stylish in a ruched white crop top and high-waisted red trousers.

Kiernan also shared a snap on her Instagram page alongside Bebe Rexha, as well as a shot which showed that her gorgeous dress had narrowly avoided being slimed during the awards ceremony – with a tiny bit of the green goop landing on her arm.

Elsewhere, The Kissing Booth star Joey King looked picture perfect as she posed for photographers ahead of the awards, wearing a Jacquemus ensemble consisting of a knit shirt and leather harness teamed with wide-leg leather cargo pants and a mini handbag.

And Janelle Monae also dressed to impress, wowing in a checked tuxedo jacket from the Petar Petrov spring ’19 runway collection which she wore as a dress. Finishing off her look, the Hidden Figures actress added a pair of Christian Louboutin ankle boots and a black hat, with yellow earrings complimenting the yellow accents in her boots.

Jennifer Hudson and Ally Brooke were two of the other stars who pulled out all the stops with their ensembles at the ceremony.

Kiernan Shipka suffered from “angry skin” while shooting the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

The actress, known for her performance as Sally Draper on AMC series Mad Men, has successfully made the transition from child star to leading lady by landing the part of Sabrina Spellman in Netflix’s new series, which is based on the comic book series of the same name.

While Kiernan was thrilled to play the half-witch teenager in the show, she has now shared that she had a terrible time with her skin when filming the episodes in Vancouver, British Columbia earlier in the year (18).

“I was having a lot of skin troubles when I moved up to Vancouver because A) I found out I was allergic to the cat on the show, so there were a lot of hive breakouts happening, and B) just adjusting to the new pollens,” she told Byrdie.com. “Plus, I think lack of sleep and the physical and mental stress of taking on this giant job made my skin angry.”

The skin flare-ups caused Kiernan to reassess her skincare regime and try out new products. Accordingly, her daily routine now incorporates a variety of different formulas from Marie Veronique, Beautycounter and Tata Harper.

“I landed on a brand called Marie Veronique, and I swear my skin has never been clearer. I think they make it here in L.A., and it’s freaking amazing. Their cleanser, their face oil, and their retinol serum are so good. I also love me some face masks,” the 18-year-old noted.

Apart from skincare, Kiernan stays grounded by taking yoga or SoulCycle classes. She also shops up a storm at local farmers’ markets too.

“(I eat) a lot of root vegetables and warm foods during the fall and winter. We could get into the sort of Ayurvedic aspect of it-like grounding foods. Top-favourite vegetable is cauliflower, for sure. And have you ever done roasted celery? It’ll change how you look at celery,” she smiled.

Kiernan Shipka has “graduated” to wearing couture to red carpet events.

The actress found fame playing Sally Draper on AMC series Mad Men and has more recently appeared as B.D. Merrill in Feud alongside Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange.

As she makes the transition from child actress to rising Hollywood name, Kiernan has started wearing more fashion-forward ensembles to events, with her stylists Jill Lincoln and Jordan Johnson explaining that she is now open to experimenting with her looks.

“She grew up on Mad Men, and her style has grown with her,” the fashionistas told Footwear News, adding that they have worked with the starlet since she was 11 years old. “She graduated far beyond the smocking dresses she started out in – to couture, in fact.”

Kiernan seeks out age-appropriate yet colourful outfits and stepped out at the 2017 Emmy Awards in September (17) wearing a pale pink gown from Miu Miu which featured crystal beading on the straps.

While at the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards she played with proportion by sporting a pair of blue and white cropped trousers with a pink top with mint green tulle detail from Delpozo, which was accessorised with shiny silver platform high heels from Miu Miu.

And though Kiernan has been spotted in lots of designer pieces of late, her stylists are adamant that the 18-year-old mixes in high-street pieces whenever she can, and counts Madewell as a go-to brand.

“Kiernan loves and understands the process and history of clothes far beyond that of most girls,” they shared.

Fans will no doubt be looking forward to seeing what the blonde star wears for her next role, as Kiernan has recently been cast as teenage witch Sabrina Spellman in a new Netflix reboot.
