Who Wore Louis Vuitton Better…Charlotte Gainsbourg or Victoria Beckham?

Who Wore Louis Vuitton Better Charlotte Gainsbourg or Victoria Beckham

Charlotte Gainsbourg wore her Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 look exactly as it was presented on the runway – sans bag – for the New York screening of ‘Nymphomaniac: Volume I’ back in March.

The French actress, who is a fan of all things Nicolas Ghesquière, rarely opts for too much makeup and that was the case again on this occasion.

Victoria Beckham decided not to be a slave to the runway styling, making the look her own by selecting both the knit vest and frill-collar shirt and swapping the vinyl trousers for a looser-fit pair for her stroll in New York City.

While I love that practically any Louis Vuitton look works for Charlotte, I also love how Victoria took it from runway to realway, making the look feel more obtainable for us all, so she wins for me.

Louis Vuitton Spring 2015 Front Row

Louis Vuitton Spring 2015 Front Row

Louis Vuitton presented their Spring 2015 collection during Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday (October 1) to a mix of LV devotees and some new fans they have picked up along the way.

Jennifer Connelly: I was going to call Jennifer Connelly Nicolas Ghesquière’s biggest fan, but Charlotte Gainsbourg would dispute that. The actress selected an LV Resort 2015 black suit with red seams which on most I don’t think I would buy, mostly due to the leather neckline, but Jennifer sells the look to me with her confident pose and the elegance which oozes from every pore.

Charlotte Gainsbourg: The French beauty always nails it, this time working a Resort 2015 biker chic look which as always looks effortless. Even though I really dislike those front-zipper trousers, like Jennifer, Charlotte managed to sell this look to me in its entirety.

Michelle Williams: While Jennifer and Charlotte wear LV religiously, Michelle, who is the face of Louis Vuitton’s desirable bags for a third season, often wears the brand, selecting the easier pieces for her red carpet look. I found myself loving this sportier look from Michelle. The look feels fresh and effortless without compromising her style or the brand’s ethos.

Gucci Spring 2015 Front Row

Gucci Spring 2015 Front Row

The front row at the Gucci Spring 2015 show, hosted today (September 7) during Milan Fashion Week in Milan, Italy, included a pretty trio of Gucci-wearing girls.

Kate Moss: Fresh from her appearance at the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 presentation on Monday, the supermodel punctuated her look with statement snake print. She paired the Gucci Resort 2015 green python leather coat with a black jersey dress, black suede platform high heel sandals and a pale-blue leather Jackie soft clutch. With minimal accessories and little fluff, it’s a very ‘Kate’ look, especially topped off with barely-there makeup and natural wavy strands.

Araya A. Hargate: Also jetting from the London Burberry Prorsum show to Milan, Araya was dressed in a Gucci Fall 2014 rose techno-fabric, short-sleeve frock with a pair of blue-python, high-heel boots with horsebit detail. With her round, oversized shades, I did love the spirited, retro stance she channeled.

Charlotte Casiraghi: The Monaco royal and the face of Gucci Cosmetics, which made its runway debut today, was the picture of effortless elegance, looking incredibly chic in a Gucci Fall 2014 black leather-trimmed sleeveless cocktail dress, sophisticatedly styled with impeccable makeup, naturally, and that great red lip.

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Louis Vuitton – ‘Samba’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Louis Vuitton - 'Samba'  Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Charlotte Gainsbourg attended the premiere of the film ‘Samba’ on September 7 at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada.

It comes as no surprise that the actress wore her favorite designer, Louis Vuitton, and the sleeveless lace and sequin creation is a custom look from the designer.

She paired the look with some unique patent-leather boots.

Charlotte is really giving us the full Charlotte treatment with this look: The messy hair, the lack of makeup and the creative fashion choices is all just a bit much for me. I really just want to give her a hairbrush.

Tell me–do you appreciate Charlotte’s individuality on the red carpet more than I?

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Anthony Vaccarello – – ‘Nymphomaniac: Volume 2 – Directors Cut’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Anthony Vaccarello - ‘Nymphomaniac Volume 2 – Directors Cut’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Charlotte Gainsbourg attended the ‘Nymphomaniac: Volume 2 – Directors Cut’ premiere during the 2014 Venice Film Festival on Monday (September 1) in Venice, Italy.

I was positive she would be wearing Louis Vuitton again, it being her favourite brand, plus she had worn LV to the photocall earlier in the day; however, it appears that her second love is Anthony Vaccarello.

Wearing yet another look from the designer’s Fall 2014 collection, she selected a one-sleeved leather dress with a cut-out detail in a mini design.

While it may not be what we expect from Charlotte, the style, the hair and the don’t-play-by-the-rules attitude is.

The only thing that doesn’t work for me here is the shoes. They kinda suck some of the sex appeal out of the look – but then perhaps that was the plan.

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Louis Vuitton – ‘Nymphomaniac: Volume 2 – Directors Cut’ Venice Film Festival Photocall

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Louis Vuitton - 'Nymphomaniac Volume 2 - Directors Cut' Venice Film Festival Photocall

Charlotte Gainsbourg was back on the red carpet for the ‘Nymphomaniac: Volume 2 – Directors Cut’ photocall during the 2014 Venice Film Festival held at the Palazzo Del Casino on Monday (September 1) in Venice, Italy.

This time she did wear Louis Vuitton to the photocall, donning an LBD from the Fall 2014 collection styled with the LV black booties with tan detailing.

These boots appear to be mandatory footwear when wearing a piece from said collection, and once again I find myself warming to them.

While this might not be a wow look, it’s perfectly in tune with her style and she wears it effortlessly and very well.
