It's STYLE WEEK here at Daily Billboard, so expect lots of fabulous fashion and gorgeous models on display.

To start the week Daily Billboard absolutely adores this billboard for Armani Exchange's Neon Sunglasses range.

Models Irina Shayk and Marlon Teixeira look suitably sexy in this cool mono beach shoot with a dash of neon yellow and blue. It's just a super cool image and colour combination that stands out as you pass by.

MOVIE WEEK: Marmaduke billboards...

Marmaduke movie billboard
This billboard is for dog lovers everywhere!

Great Dane 'Marmaduke' and his pals certainly catch your eye as you drive past and it's no wonder he needs those shades with that brilliantly blue sky and dazzling sunshine framing the billboard for his new live-action movie perfectly.

This ever so dog-friendly billboard was photographed on Sunset Boulevard on May 11, 2010.

UPDATED: This giant Marmaduke billboard was also snapped further west on the side of the 9000 building along Sunset Boulevard the same month.

MOVIE WEEK: The A-Team billboard...

The A-Team movie billboard
How many TV franchises have successfully made the leap to the big screen, especially one that's been out of the public eye since the 80's? Maybe The A-Team movie will be the exception to the rule, due to the fact their adventures hold such a fondness in people's hearts, especially Mr. T's iconic 'B.A. Baracus' which is now such a part of pop culture history.

Daily Billboard loves how this billboard stands out so much by featuring close-ups of Hannibal, Face, B.A. Baracus and Murdock (although that's an awful lot of facial hair going on).

Let's hope Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Quinto Jackson and Sharlto Copley have a similar chemistry as the originals and that they are equally adept at cobbling together weapons and vehicles from old bits of junk and a few yards of duct tape.

This billboard for the new movie incarnation was photographed on May 20, 2010 at Crescent Heights and Sunset Boulevard in L.A.

Woody Toy Story 3 movie billboard
First there was space ranger Buzz Lightyear, now there's cowboy 'Woody' to promote the third installment in the wonderful Disney/Pixar Toy Story animated movies.

Is Daily Billboard the only one to find this fun billboard utterly charming and totally in character for the bashful and gentlemanly cowboy 'Woody'.

Daily Billboard can't see this image without hearing Tom Hanks voice in our head and we are really looking forward to Toy Story 3.

Sex and the City 2 ensemble movie billboard
Sex and the city 2 opens at cinemas today and the gang's all here to celebrate.

Daily Billboard has already featured two fun billboards shining the spotlight on SJP's 'Carrie', so it's long overdue that the other SATC ladies get their chance to shine alongside her in the sandy dunes of the Sahara Desert.

So welcome Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda and here's to more fashion, fabulousness and frivolity in the franchises second cinematic outing.

MOVIE WEEK: Tron Legacy Light Runner billboard...

Tron Legacy Light Runner billboard
The sci-fi excitement continues with this brand new teaser billboard for Tron Legacy, featuring a new four-wheeled 'Light Runner' vehicle being chased by the familiar 'Light-Cycle'.

MOVIE WEEK: Splice film billboard...

Splice movie billboard
From what I've seen in the trailer for this sci-fi horror starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley, I'm not sure I really want to 'Meet Dren'.

However this intriguing visual for the movie about genetic experimentation really does catch your eye with its sweet, yet alien looking baby imagery.

This impactful billboard was photographed along Sunset Boulvevard in West Hollywood on May 11, 2010.

MOVIE WEEK: Who is Salt teaser billboard...

Who is Salt movie billboard
This new teaser billboard for Angelina Jolie's new espionage thriller, Salt, kicks off another MOVIE WEEK here at Daily Billboard.

Is 'Evelyn Salt' a CIA hero, a covert Russian spy or something else? The sexy actress has such an identifiable face with those sultry, pouting lips that this billboard is a clever tease for her new movie.

This simple and effective mono billboard was photographed on Sunset Boulevard in L.A. on May 18, 2010.

Come back all this week for more new movie billboards from all genres of film - comedy, sci-fi, horror, drama and more.

LOST The Finale TV billboard...

LOST The Finale TV billboard
So this is truly the end of LOST? No more black smoke monster, no more Others, no more shadowy Dharma Initiative, whispering voices, polar bears rampaging through the jungle, moving islands, evil Ben, mad French woman, Jack, Kate, Sawyer?

Finally we'll get answers, or will we? Is the island purgatory and they are all dead, is it a scientific experiment, an alien spaceship, or will they all just wake up in the shower and it'll all have been a really bad dream?

Whatever happens Daily Billboard is glad to have gotten the chance to snap this series finale billboard along Barham Boulevard in Burbank on May 21, 2010, as the cast promotional image has become such an iconic visual that DB's sure it will have a special place in the annuls of TV pop culture history and be emulated many times over in years to come.

Let's just hope we won't be still lost about the mysteries of the series after this two and half hour finale event.

The Boondocks Will Be Televised billboard...

The Boondocks Will be televised season 3 billboardIs Daily Billboard the only one who loves Adult Swim's unconventional approach to billboard advertising? Their ad sites always look so distinctive, quirky and different from other mainstream TV channels, or other brands for that matter.

Take for example this arresting visual for The Boondocks animated show and the enticing message that the series 'Will Be Televised'. It's almost challenging to watch the show as it suggests that someone has tried to stop it from airing.

This intriguing billboard was snapped on Sunset Boulevard near Crescent Heights Boulevard in L.A. on May 11, 2010.

If you like this billboard you may also like Adult Swim's Metalocalypse billboard previously featured here on Daily Billboard.

True Blood Do Bad Things season three TV billboard...

True Blood Do Bad Things TV billboard
Daily Billboard fans went crazy for the True Blood teaser billboards recently, so you're all going to go positively gaga for this fantastic 'Do Bad Things' billboard for season three of the raunchy vampire themed TV show.

There's lots of human, vampire and shapeshifter flesh on display, with a mighty big snake to help provide the temptation in this veritable Garden of Eden-esque main cast promotional poster.

This billboard was photographed along La Brea Avenue at Hawthorn Avenue on the side of the Hollywood Gym & Fitness building on May 18, 2010.

UPDATED: A giant creative for season three was also snapped along Sunset Boulevard on June 7, 2010.

Gossip Girl season four TV billboard...

Gossip Girl season 4 TV billboard
The cast of Gossip Girl look suitably fashionable in this billboard for the fourth season of the popular show.

The creative featuring Blake Lively, Chance Crawford, Leighton Meester et al, is very editorial and looks like it has sprung from the pages of Vanity Fair or some other high fashion magazine.

This billboard was photographed at the top of La Cienega at Sunset Boulevard in L.A. on May 11, 2010.

Virgin America Airlines billboard...

Virgin America Airlines billboard
The Virgin brand has always been fresh, vibrant and somewhat sexy and the new billboard advertising campaign for the airline's American service are no less so.

Daily Billboard has spotted about four different versions around L.A. at the moment, but this is the only male model variant seen to date. The billboard is quite striking and almost military in nature, maybe playing up the patriotism angle.

The colour combination of red, white and blue really does make the billboard stand out along the streets of Los Angeles, like this one was photographed on April 28, 2010 at the intersection of Melrose and La Brea Avenue.

Racy Vampire Diaries TV billboard...

Vampire Diaries 2010 billboardIs it me, or are there an awful lot of vampire themed TV shows and movies around at the moment? And do you think that The Vampire Diaries seem to be sexing things up with this raunchy billboard at the end of their first season.

Anyone would think this was a billboard for HBO's True Blood, although they'd have to really go for it to steal the crown from True Blood's graphic sexual content.

Regardless, this sensual threesome billboard featuring Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley is certainly an attention grabber on Highland Avenue in L.A. on May 10, 2010.

Calvin Klein showering bikini babe billboard...

Calvin Klein hot bikini fashion billboard
After so many hot male model billboards, it's only fair to show more of the female form here at Daily Billboard.

So if you like fabulously toned ladies, here's a perfect specimen to admire as she showers off the sand in this sensational bikini advertisement for Calvin Klein swimwear.

The lovely model in question is Edita Vilkeviciute from Lithuania. She looks great framed against that wonderfully blue Californian sky and certainly catches your eye as you drive by.

Enjoy the view photographed on May 7, 2010 along Sunset Boulevard and come back every day for more fantastic billboards.

Abercrombie & Fitch hot male model torso billboard...

Abercrombie and Fitch hot male model torso billboardOh how we regret that Abercrombie & Fitch are not advertising at the moment. This buff male model billboard was photographed way back on August 15, 2008 along Sunset Boulevard in L.A.

Maybe if they limited their Chief Executive, Mike Jeffries, use of the private company jet for personal trips they'd be able to afford to wow us all again on a regular basis.

This beautiful billboard of the perfect male torso in mono is more about branding than clothes that's for sure, but let's face it anyone who buys the brand either wants to look like this guy or go out with him.

Angels & Demons was a far better movie than the first adaptation of Dan Brown's best-selling novel The DaVinci Code and it also had some great billboards to get audiences excited for the second big screen outing of Tom Hanks character, Harvard symbologist 'Robert Langdon'.

BONUS WEEK: Surrogates movie billboards...

Surrogates female robot film billboard
Even though the futuristic thriller, Surrogates, starring Bruce Willis wasn't the best sci-fi movie in the world, it did have an eye-catching billboard advertising campaign to pique everyone's interest in the run up its cinematic release.

These fashion editorial style creatives featuring beautiful models juxtaposed with robotic spinal cords really makes for an interesting visual.

Both futuristic billboards were photographed along Wilshire Boulevard in L.A. on August 12, 2009.
