Stylish fashion, drinks & lifestyle billboards around L.A. in November 2013...

November is drawing to a close and with the Holidays fast approaching the skies were full of seasonal drinks, fashion and gift idea billboards, plus a few more eclectic ad creatives to catch your eye this month.

Arts billboards
Avedon Women Gagosian Gallery billboard
This striking photographic image for the Avedon: Women exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery was one of my favourites this month and certainly caught my eye.

Fashion billboards
Prada FW 2013 fashion billboard
From a famous fashion photographer to a high-style catwalk brand, Prada had another Fall/Winter 2013 ad creative this month.
Ashlee for Jessica Simpson Fall 13 billboard
From luxury designer labels to more affordable fashion, and Ashlee Simpson modeled for her famous sister's fall collection this month.
Gap Make love billboard
More celebrities could be found modeling for fashion brand's this month, as the stars of the punk-rock movie drama CBGB, Malin Akerman, Mickey Sumner and Ahna O'Reilly, struck a pose for Gap's Make Love campaign.
Banana Republic Open for Joy billboard
And this month Banana Republic is Open for Joy with its wintery Holidays 2013 ad campaign.
Banana Republic LWren Scott Collection billboard
Plus the clothing retailer has a new collection just in time for party season from Mick Jagger's girlfriend, L'Wren Scott.
David Yurman jewelry billboard
And luxury jewelry designer David Yurman was trying to tempt you with his bright shining things for your loved one this festive season, with this stylish mono ad creative along the Sunset Strip.

Drinks billboards
Shock Top Belgian White beer billboard
Even though I'm not a beer drinker, I'm always a sucker for a good special extension and this billboard for Shock Top Belgian White, with the frothy head of beer sneaking over the top, certainly grabbed my attention.
Giant Bud Light billboard Sunset Strip
I'm also quite partial to a super-sized billboard, like this new massive wall wrap on the side of the Mondrian Hotel for Bud Light which makes quite an impact.
Giant Heineken Open your celebrations billboard
Yes, you can tell it's party season, as the alcohol brands and breweries are definitely spending their money to get your attention, like Heineken with their limited edition holiday bottle designs.
Stella Artois celebrate the Holidays billboard
Plus Stella Artois resurrects it's Holidays creative for another year, because like they say, if it ain't broken, don't fix it.
Patron Tequila David Yurman billboard
Meanwhile if you're looking for gift ideas, Patrón Tequila collaborated with another famous designer this festive season to bring you a new limited edition bottle-stopper. This year jewelry designer David Yurman created a samurai sword inspired stopper, and if you like this, be sure to check out last year's Patrón Tequila bottle-stopper billboard from John Varvatos.

Technology billboards
Giant blue iPhone 5c billboard
This month Apple changed around the colours of its billboards for the new iPhone 5c and this giant Sunset Boulevard ad location went from pink to blue.
Giant GoPro snowboarding billboard
GoPro switched its giant surfer billboard for another extreme sport to illustrate the versatility of its cameras, with this super-sized snowboarding wall mural.
not just a laptop Surface 2 billboard
After a very disappointing start with millions of units of stock having to be written off for the first Surface, Microsoft kicked off another ad campaign for its new Surface 2 tablet. I'm not sure this ad campaign is any more enticing than the last one though, but you be the judge and check out these Surface launch campaign billboards.
WD My Cloud billboard
Western Digital was the latest service provide to offer consumers their own personal cloud storage system with these My Cloud billboards.
Sony 4k ultra HD TV billboard
And if you were in the market for a new TV (and couldn't face the madness of the Black Friday sales crowds), Sony was promoting its new 4K Ultra HD television, with this clever billboard creative.
Giant Google Play music billboard
Google Play launched its new unlimited music offering with these colourful speaker billboards and a cool interconnecting billboards on opposite sides of the Sunset Strip, which will certainly vex other providers like iTunes radio, Pandora, Sirius XM and the rest.
Pillywood Beats Pills speakers billboard
And speaking of music, these witty billboards for the wireless Beats Pills speakers have started to pop up around L.A. just in time for the festive gift-giving season. They're not the first brand or product to pay homage to the infamous Hollywood Sign in an ad campaign, just check out this Hilfigers billboard from earlier this year to launch their new L.A. flagship store.

Car billboards
LA Auto Show 2013 billboard
The other day I was cursing the L.A. Auto Show when I got stuck in traffic downtown for the annual expo, but being a sci-fi fan, I did like this futuristic alien invasion creative for the car show.
2014 Corvette Stingray billboard
And speaking of cars, Chevrolet has certainly been hyping its 2014 Corvette Stingray this month with lots of different ads for the sleek and sporty auto lining the city skyline.
2014 Corvette Stingray billboard
Whilst the Nissan Versa Note was less interested in wowing passersby with favourable quotes and more interested in conveying the fun you could have with the car, like going diving apparently.
Nissan Versa Note diver billboard

Religious billboards
Atheists Thank God youre wrong billboard
This month there were more than a few questionable billboards around town, like this passive aggressive religious billboard which to me doesn't convey the Christian values of acceptance and that we're all God's children, more that some of us are better than others, so there. 

Health billboards
Keeping you together SnoreStop billboard
Another controversial ad was this billboard for SnoreStop, which had nothing at all to do with the actual sleep aid product and more with courting controversy and PR over the choice of couple of an American soldier and a Muslim woman in a burka.

As you can see a real variety of lifestyle billboards this month and if you like these, be sure to check out November's movie billboard round-up and cool TV billboard round-up.

I wonder what delights will grace the skies of L.A. in December, only time will tell...
