There were just so many fabulous new billboards lining L.A.'s skyline this month that I had to split them into two installments. Today it's the best of the fashion, drinks and other cool billboards on show, whilst you'll be able to see August's TV and movie adverts separately.
So check out these visions in vinyl that have been grabbing attention around L.A. in August.
Let's kick off with this hot biker boy heating up The Sunset Strip for Armani Exchange.
Next up, Marc Jacobs himself strips down and oils himself up to promote his new men's fragrance 'Bang'.
There's more toned male bodies on show along Santa Monica Boulevard, with hot models for Parke & Ronen swimwear and AussieBum underwear.
Thankfully the AussieBum billboard has recently had the tree in front of it trimmed allowing for a fully unhindered view of this Australian beefcake.
The Miss Me fashion brand gets all seductive, with these luscious lips in mono looming large over Sunset Boulevard.
Meanwhile, Hale Bob and Buffalo Jeans both go for some girl-on-girl action to titillate passersby.
Funnily enough both billboards can be found on the same corner opposite The Beverly Center shopping mall.
Express promotes its Rerock Jeans range for women, whilst Levi's continues to brand itself in its own inimitable style, this time with this fun, carefree billboard.
And finally Chanel remains as chic as ever in black and white over Sunset Plaza.
The current campaign for Skyy Vodka is quite possibly one of my favourites of all time. The vibrant, bold and uncluttered visuals really do standout and catch your eye effortlessly, from the Cherry and Pineapple Infusions variants featured here, to the Ginger Vodka creative.
Another advertising campaign catching my eye around L.A. at the moment is this one for Vitamin Water, which also follows the same colourful, bold and simple philosophy.
I have to say I prefer my water to be clear and untampered with, but I do like these eye-catching billboards, which have several other creative executions I've yet to capture on camera.
Speaking of colourful drinks ads, I also loved this bright, refreshing and zingy specimen for Bud Light Lime in August.
Sports billboardsNext up is a whole selection of billboards for the Dodgertown creative campaign. Rock legends 'Slash' and 'Ozzy Osborne' (accompanied by his wife Sharon) grace two sites along The Sunset Strip to coincide with the third Annual Music Festival this weekend.
You'll also find late-night TV talk-show host, Larry King, adorning this billboard near Sunset & Vine in Hollywood.
Whilst shock horror, you may even spy a billboard sporting an actual baseball player from the L.A. Dodgers along La Brea Avenue, just to remind you what the campaign is all about.
I've included this Verizon billboard, not only because the image of the strong, capable woman reinforces its 'Signal is Strength' message, but also due to the fact that since I've switched to AT&T on the iPhone you can hardly get any signal in the vast majority of West Hollywood.
Theme Park billboards
Finally for this assortment of billboards is this Fairytale Castle spectacle for Disneyland, whose Summer fireworks displays come to an end this weekend.
On the subject of Disneyland, my Half Marathon there takes place in just ten short days time.
Enjoy this selection and be sure to come back soon to check out the latest television and film billboards around L.A. in August...
