Brand Ambassador of the Year – Alicia Vikander for Louis Vuitton

There was a time when we may have lost a bit of faith in brand ambassadors for keeping the style excitement alive for their respective designer. Dior darlings will likely spring to mind.

But, in representation of Louis Vuitton, Alicia Vikander not only has restored the brand ambassador role, but she’s also worn what can be a challenging label with effortless elegance.

The actress’s Louis Vuitton ensembles have been masterful in their strength of form that offers a modern version of trend-forward femininity—even in the realm of gowns that seamlessly find a natural fit on the red carpet when worn by Alicia.

But, what also sets her apart from the rest of the LV lovelies is that her looks are never contrived. That is to say, they don’t wear her.

Rather, she stays true to her personal aesthetic—one that’s sleek and sophisticated without a hint of try-hard—and lets the brand work for her.

Alicia Vikander In Jonathan Simkhai – Bulgari Resort Dubai Opening

Alicia Vikander was a rosy delight at the Bulgari Resort Dubai opening on Tuesday (December 5), where she joined Bella Hadid.

When I saw her Jonathan Simkhai Spring 2018 ensemble, I was struck by its romance.

The corseted waist married with the flutter sleeves and lace detailing on the uneven hem created a pretty feminine ensemble that was brimming with elegance.

Her accessories elevated the outfit for evening while enhancing the blush tones of the dress.

The only thing that brought the ensemble down slightly was the black and tan purse which felt a touch too harsh.

Alicia Vikander In Chloe – British Vogue’s December Issue Dinner Party

Alicia Vikander attended a dinner party to celebrate Edward Enninful’s first cover for British Vogue on Tuesday (November 7) in London.

The actress wore Chloe Spring 2018 dress which melds notes of Victoriana into a modern-romantic vision of femininity, which is further exemplified with the house’s signature bohemian charm.

Her open-toe ankle boot gives the look an edge, but I do prefer the runway boots.

‘Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton’ Exhibition

Fashionistas in the Louis Vuitton family stepped out to attended the ‘Volez, Voguez, Voyagez ‘ exhibition opening on Thursday (October 26) in New York City, with the ladies all wearing Spring 2018 outfits.

Alicia Vikander: Making her first appearance since marrying Michael Fassbender, the newlywed continued to prove why she and Louis Vuitton are a smashing combination. Many will be focused on her ring, but I enjoyed the way the embroidered coat dressed up the skinny trousers. The double handles on the bag could have come off as contrived, but they don’t.

Pom Klementieff: Also displaying a compelling mix, the actress gave us long and short proportions with animal print, stripes and varying textures. Some might find it a tad too much, but the cute eye bag helped merge the competing black and brown pieces.

Zendaya Coleman:
This marked the actress’s first Louis Vuitton event. Recently, she has had a number of triumphant red carpet hits so I was intrigued to see what she would bring to the brand. The interplay of fabrics and textures is interesting and I like how she brought a sophisticated elegance to the shorter hemline.

Front Row @ Louis Vuitton Spring 2018

Many of the same stars who were at the opening of the Louis Vuitton boutique were seated front row at the Louis Vuitton Spring 2018 show the next day on Tuesday (October 3) during Paris Fashion Week. So, you will be excused if you’re already experiencing a certain kind of déjà vu.

Here, the lineup of the LV looks—take two—from the brand’s biggest fans.

Cate Blanchett: I had a slightly easier time embracing this directional look from Cate, as opposed to her more disjointed offering the day before. Perhaps some elements still seemed a bit forced, but no one can say this wasn’t a mullet-esque look—warrior-chic on the top, and business on the bottom.

Julianne Moore: Stepping away from the colour black, the actress was radiant in this rich, jade-green dress that had its own party happening at the back with the long fringe detail.

Alicia Vikander: Yet again, Alicia’s effortlessly chic look took top billing. In this case, it was her accessories—the handbag and booties, in particular—that really elevated this all-black ensemble.
