Stylish fashion, drink and lifestyle billboards around L.A. in December...

This month has been a tricky one for photographing billboards around L.A. Firstly the weather has been a tad unpredictable, I've been away in Hawaii running the Honolulu Marathon and my laptop crashed taking with it a wealth of images from recent weeks. Fortunately a few panic attacks, couple hundred dollars and good data retrieval later and here's another round-up of fabulous fashion, drink and lifestyle billboards around L.A. in December.

Fashion billboards
Banana Republic Holidays 2012 billboard
Banana Republic once again filled the skies this December with a suitably festive and fashionable ad campaign.
Gap Love comes in every shade billboard
Plus Gap had this lovely campaign message, 'Love comes in every shade', to make you feel all snug and rosy.
Giant David Beckham Breitling watch billboard
Kudos go to Breitling this month for trying to advertise their luxury watches with a nice lifestyle creative featuring David Beckham, rather than simply relying on a boring product shot that most jewelers resort to.
Louis Vuitton hot air balloon billboard
Another brand creating more of a sense of wonder, than showing products, was this whimsical hot air balloon billboard from Louis Vuitton (an image taken from their first ever TV commercial).
Burberry luggage billboard
Burberry was getting ready to travel for the Holidays, showcasing its holdalls and luggage in their latest ad creative.
Calvin Klein Jeans F/W 2012 billboard
Meanwhile the Calvin Klein Jeans models were hanging around on their usual street corner.
Giant Forever 21 Chanel Iman FW 2012 billboard
Supermodel Chanel Iman was super-sized along the Sunset Strip for this giant Forever 21 billboard.
Hudson gift keeps fitting billboard
Whilst Georgia May Jagger was kind of getting in the festive spirit with a Hudson Jeans billboard with a witty tagline, 'The gift that keeps on fitting', indeed.
Jessica Simpson FW 2012 billboard
Plus Jessica Simpson debuted a new billboard just in time for party season.
Saks Fifth Avenue mens slippers billboard
And if you were wondering what to get for the man in your life, Saks Fifth Avenue Men's Store suggested the time honoured tradition of slippers for him.
Aldo Shoes ticker tape billboard
Meanwhile Aldo Shoes was celebrating 40 years in the business and getting ready for that New Year's Eve countdown with this absolutely fabulous ticker tape creative.

Drinks billboards
Coke Santa 2012 billboard
Coca-Cola always has one of my favourite festive billboards and this year's creative is no exception. If you like this jolly Father Christmas creative, be sure to also check out these previous Coke Santa billboards
Grey Goose Celebrate season billboard
Of course Coca-Cola goes exceedingly well with a great vodka and Grey Goose is certainly my favourite brand, regardless of the season.
Herradura Tequila Never Compromise billboard
It's a big month of the alcoholic drinks market, not only are they all those parties to go to, but there's also all those gift-giving opportunities. That's why brands like Herradura Tequila are doing their upmost to stand out from the crowd this month with this special extension billboard.
Giant Hennessy Wild Rabbit billboard
Plus Hennessy Cognac has this giant-sized billboard on the side of the Andaz Hotel to grab your attention.
Johnnie Walker Blue Label whisky billboard
There's also lots of Johnnie Walker Whisky billboards around town too, whether it be for their Blue Label or Double Black varieties.
Stella Artois Celebrate Holidays billboard
Not to be left out by the liquors, Stella Artois likes to remind everyone that their beer was originally brewed to be enjoyed at the Holidays.
Blue Moon Artfully Crafted beer billboard
And Blue Moon beer is artfully crafted at this time of year served with its signature slice of orange, which is quite festive.
Always Smooth Keystone Light beer billboard
At first when I saw this billboard for Keystone Light beer I really thought it was for some comedy show as it looked a bit like a parody ad, but apparently not.

Technology billboards
Giant Windows Phone billboard
Obviously it's a great time of year for phone and consumer electronics sales, hence why the new Windows Phone has this giant-sized billboard along Wilshire Boulevard.
Meet Rudolph Windows Phone billboard
Plus a few festive creatives to catch your eye and make the brand seem more fun too.
Surface skateboarder billboard
Not only are Microsoft spending a fortune plugging their new phone software, but they are still spending bucket loads advertising their new Surface tablet, although their billboards are still a bit uninspiring compared to Apple's.
Samsung Galaxy Note II billboard
And not to be forgotten Samsung is still pushing its smartphones, like the Galaxy Note II flying high over Hollywood & Highland.

Travel billboards
Turkish Airlines Kobe Messi billboard
This month Turkish Airlines are using sports stars Kobe Bryant and Lionel Messi as brand ambassadors for their airline to grab your attention at this key Holidays travel time.

Theme Park billboards
Grinchmas Universal Studios Hollywood 2012 billboard
And as it's Christmas Eve I'll leave you with two festive theme park billboards to get you in the holiday spirit.
Disneyland Just Got Merrier Cars billboard
If you live in Southern California, will you be enjoying a Merry Grinchmas this year, or spending your Holidays at Disneyland's Car Land.

Whatever you get up to, be sure to have a very Merry Christmas...
