L.A.'s coolest fashion, drinks and lifestyle billboards in October...

Here in L.A. the hot weather has persisted through October, with a few odd rain showers, so we're not quite ready to see fashion billboards with thick winter coats, so I'm happy to report there's still a lot of bright, summery ads out there. Here's a collection of the latest beauty products, designer brands, eyewear, drinks and lifestyle billboard lining the skies of Los Angeles this month.

Fashion and beauty billboards
Ubersexy bigger bum billboard
Why anyone would by a beauty product to give them a bigger bum is beyond me, especially when eating cake does the trick in a much funner way, but this Ubersexy billboard certainly catches your eye along Hollywood Boulevard.
Calvin Klein gold jeans billboard
Lara Stone continues to rock it out for Calvin Klein Jeans, this month looking bold in gold.
Armani Exchange FW 2012 billboard
Meanwhile Armani Exchange returns to the skies of Sunset Plaza, above their flagship store, after being absent for a few months.
Gucci Resort 2013 billboard
And Gucci look like they're getting ready for next Spring with their new Resort wear 2013 collection billboard (the first of many I'm sure).
Rag Bone NY Kate Moss billboard
Rag & Bone New York have opened a new store along Melrose Avenue so this windswept Kate Moss billboard is helping to spread the word.
Dior Rodeo Drive Boutique billboard
They say the economy is weak and yet here's another new boutique opening billboard, this time for Dior new Rodeo Drive store.
Gap Be Bright singer billboard
Gap continues its Modern Icons campaign with singers and musicians Nicki Bluhm and the Avett Brothers helping to give their billboards a hip, young vibe.
Gap Strike a cord billboard
And Banana Republic had this smart looking pair of bright young things on its billboard outside The Grove shopping centre.

There's a new Jessica Simpson billboard along Santa Monica Boulevard and this one is the first not to feature the singing celebrity in person (aside from a few posters in the background). She's obviously wanting to lose some baby weight so she can fit back into her fashion line.

Hale Bob continues to change its creatives on a frequent basis, but I like the fact they've not given up on summer living quite yet.

Another ray of sunshine this month comes from Aldo Shoes with this bold blue billboard featuring Benjamin Eidem, a vision in denim.

Stuart Weitzman continues to make his footwear look sexy in the skies along the Sunset Strip.

Plus Tom Ford continue to look super chic with his new eyewear billboard, always a fashion essential in sunny L.A.

Talking about accessories, musician Rob Pryor was on hand this month to model Burberry's new watch for men, aptly named 'The Britain'.

For Mac Cosmetics Nicky Minaj and Ricky Martin were Viva Glam with these colourful ads (although I swear Nicky Minaj looks more and more like former Mac Cosmetics 'face', RuPaul, every day).

And these days looking stylish extends to the technology you use and how it looks, so Speck's montage of smartphones and laptop cases added some vibrant colour along Hollywood Boulevard in October.

Fragrance billboards
Coco Mademoiselle Chanel fragrance billboard
Returning to the skies this month was Keira Knightley's stunning ad for Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle fragrance (let's not forget that gift-giving time will soon be upon us).

Magazine billboards 
Elle Women Hollywood billboard
You don't often see magazine advertising on billboards, so it's nice to see the fashionable Elle magazine promoting its Women in Hollywood issue in West Hollywood.

Drinks billboards
Dream Water special extension billboard
When I saw this special extension billboard for Dream Water, I really did think to myself 'only in L.A.' There's a shot, juice or natural herbal remedy here for everything these days. If they can bottle sleep, I'm surprised they have bottled 'fame' yet, now that would sell like hot cakes.
Espolon Tequila Agave billboard
Espolon Tequila had more billboards in its new ad campaign around town this month and I really like the use of illustrated art in their creatives for a change. Plus with the skeleton creatives they are perfectly timed for Halloween.
Leona Tequila billboard
Another tequila introduced this month is Deleon's 'Leona' brand with this intriguing billboard.
Svedka fembot billboard
And taking to the skies above Hollywood & Highland again was Svedka Vedka's oddly alluring fembot in this colourful creative.

Culture and causes billboards
Smithsonian Seriously Amazing website billboard
And inquiring minds were offered another solution to sate their inquisitive appetites about science, nature, history and the arts this month, with the Smithsonian's new Seriously Amazing website billboards.

I also thought this literacy billboard was endearing, although my favourite so far from this organisation has been their Kermit the Frog Live your dreams billboard.
Literacy Values billboard

Technology billboards
Finally here's a cool billboard for Apple's new iPad mini, set to rival the Kindle Fire, Google's Nexus 7 and Samsung's Galaxy Tab 7.7. Sometimes with design, less is more.

If you like this collection of ads, be sure to check out my Daily Billboard blog for a daily dose of fashion, drinks, lifestyle and more billboard creatives.

Stick around in the days to come for more round-ups of the best TV and movie billboards that L.A. had to offer in October...
