CLARK, CAROLE AND MICHAEL: Michael Kors is banking on classic Hollywood iconography to move his fall collection. The two models in the campaign, Karmen Pedaru and Simon Nessman, have been tapped to play “a latter-day version” Carole Lombard and Clark Gable. It’s familiar territory for Kors, for whom the Golden Era of Hollywood is a frequent thematic touchstone on the runway.

The models are also friends of the house. It’s the fifth campaign for both Pedaru and Nessman. Mario Testino shot them both in April at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles.
