Roberto Cavalli (I love that it's so un-glitzed up, there's something very beautiful about it)
Prada (it's dark, it's clean, it's elegant.....simple as that)
Chanel (It's grown on me, it's much better then the last few seasons that's for sure)
Dolce and Gabbana (though I'm not sure why)
Runners up: YSL, Calvin Klein (runway), Gaultier (need to see more)
Hated: Fendi (hated the collection but with Carolyn Murphy I had high hopes), Gucci (about as un-Gucci as you can get), Dior (Hello!!! Bo-ring!)
I have to add Givenchy to my list, I've only seen one shot, but it's gorgeous.

i have to say this has turned out to be the most lackluster season of ads in a loonng time cause i always go crazy at this time and go out and pay airflight prices on mags just to see them up close and this season...nothing, there wasn't one campaign that i was excited by. but some solid ones are:
Hermes: probably my favourite campaign of the season, as always superior layout design and graphics and text great composition and movement.
Missoni: Bianca is perfect for this, all the earthiness really gives it a lot of sexiness and warmth, which reminds me a lot of s/s 2002 with gisele actually.
YSL: its actually perfect for ysl...really taps into those seedy streets of paris by night set of aesthetics helmut newton helped to create. maybe its based on that photograph by newton of that androgynous model with her hair slicked back in a le smoking smoking in a dim cobblestone lane?
giorgio armani: its actually quite impressive in print...its not particularly new or interesting but i just like the lighting and the composition and the subtle qualities like the warm tone.
