Louis Vuitton Resort 2015 Front Row

LV1

The Place d’Armes in Monte Carlo, Monaco proved just the glossy venue for the Louis Vuitton Resort 2015 show, Nicolas Ghesquière’s second collection for the label, which was held on Saturday (May 17). A chic group of the designer’s darlings—many of whom have also been sighted at the Cannes Film Festival—were seated front and centre for the colourful, eclectic presentation, all correspondingly decked in looks from Vuitton’s Fall 2014 runway.

Jennifer Connelly: The actress trotted out a monochromatic dress with flared sleeves and skirt, accessorized with a small box clutch and patent-black statement booties. The mix of geometric shapes and cutouts, in addition to the armor-like collar overlays, was a lot to manage. Do you think she pulled it off?

Adele Exarchopoulos: Opting for a slightly sportier entrance, the French starlet wore a light lemon-hued zippered blouse with a statement white collar and black detailing. Shiny black leggings, a mini handbag and ankle-strap platform sandals completed her look.

Zhang Ziyi
: Bringing a bolder splash of colour to the proceedings, the Asian actress paired her cerulean-blue and black collared, zipper blouse with a deep eggplant A-line skirt, accented by a burgundy wrap belt.

Charlotte Gainsbourg: Wearing the same skin-tight, black lacquered leggings as Adele, Charlotte punched hers up even more with a gold-embellished tunic top and a red-hot pair of shoe-boots.

Brit Marling: The actress was incredibly chic in black and white, flaunting a fit-and-flare dress that was edged up with black boots. Blonde waves and naturally flushed, nude makeup completed her polished presentation.

Rinko Kikuchi: The tweed frock featured the same graphic, black-and-white zipper collar detail, which contributed an added dose of punch, as did her patent black booties. I’m not sure if the oversized monogram clutch was the best fit here, but she made it work to her advantage.

    I like Adele, Zhang and Brit’s looks.

    Adele, Zhang and Brit’s looks are good examples of when
    Nicolas Ghesquière gets it right. The rest- as most of his work for Vuitton is- a trainwreck.

    I think a lot of the problem with the LV outings are those shoe boots. Cant understand why they appear so often as they completely drag down practically every look they’re paired with. They belong in a bonfire right alongside Fan Bingbings stripper shoes. FC, I suggest a new category for end of the year…

      +1, it’s like you’ve read my mind gretta. I laughed so hard over the “burning shoes in the bonfire”part..couldn’t stop picturing the image in my head.

    I only like Adele’s look.

    I dislike ALL of them. His first collection for LV was awful.
    Thanks God the collection showed last Saturday was infinitely better and more interesting.

    Adele looks nice.

    Hm, taken as a whole a rather sad group. Ziyi’s and Brit’s colour-blocking looks fare best for me here. Jennifer’s dress is hideously overwrought.

    Brit looks nice

    Brit looks nice. I wish she wore different shoes though
