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.

Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme Opening

Paris Fashion Week also ushered in the grand opening of the Maison Louis Vuitton at Place Vendôme in Paris, France on Monday (October 2), with a number of the brand’s biggest fans in attendance—and all donning signature LV looks.

Cate Blanchett: As hard as I tried, I just couldn’t get on board with what Cate was serving up here. Between the silken, emerald green jacket and leather belt, the pinstripe blouse and its exaggerated cuffs, and the racing stripe track pants, it looked like she had borrowed pieces from three different looks that should have never been in the same room together.

Julianne Moore: With a look that was as close as Julianne could get to her favoured LBDs, she brought an elegance to this distressed lace dress that was reinforced by her simple approach to styling with a complementary clutch and sandals.

Alicia Vikander: I know that some question the Alicia and LV pairing, but she just wears the looks so effortlessly—even this rebellious combination between a striped top and leopard skirt, topped off with combat boots, had an undeniable cool-girl vibe.

Louis Vuitton Resort 2018 Front Row

The Louis Vuitton Resort 2018 show was held on Sunday (May 14) in Koka, Japan, with the LV lovelies out in force in their best renditions of the brand.

Fan BingBing: I love the tough-girl edge that Fan served up here with this twist on leather, as she tempered it with a retro femininity in her bronze earrings and cross-body handbag as well as her oxblood lip.

Jennifer Connelly: Perhaps my love of electric blue was skewing my judgment, but the vibrancy of this uniform-like ensemble was intriguing. That said, the same sentiment was not felt so much for the taupe belt and platform loafers, but they did play into the funky-sport theme.

Michelle Williams: It seems as if we’ve seen this dress before, as despite its elaborate embroidery and pattern mix, it remains a bit one-note. And, it seems as if it is wearing Michelle and not the other way around. I fault the restrictive neckline for that—and the boots, which simply are too forced here.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – 2017 Met Gala

Jennifer Connelly attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a Louis Vuitton dress with black boots and dramatic waterfall earrings.

Is this the point in the night where I start yelling ‘this isn’t avant garde’? Because this dress is really fabulous and fun for a hundred different occasions, but it’s simple too, well, simple for me to get on board with it for tonight’s grand affair.

While I feel the dress miss the night’s mark, those earrings, her red eyeshadow and super sleeked back hair are fabulous, and really causing me to question what fountain of youth Jennifer must have found!

So what do you think? Was this dress a good choice for tonight, or no?

Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons Collaboration Launch Party

No stranger to collaborations, Louis Vuitton has now partnered with pop artist Jeff Koons on a limited line of accessories launching in April 28. To celebrate this Masters capsule collection, a dinner was held in Paris on Tuesday (April 11), with a host of LV-clad lovelies in attendance.

Jennifer Connelly: With a nod to a softer, romantic mood, Jennifer let her hair down in this decorative brocade and lace frock topped with a feathery stole. The label’s signature patent booties brought back the edge we’d expect in a look from this actress.

Fan Bingbing: Fan wore the signature sheer asymmetry of this gown effortlessly, which we’ve seen in different variation on Sophie Turner and Janice Man. I just think it would have been better served by sleeker styling, as the handbag and earrings competed rather than complemented the dress.

Cate Blanchett: As per, Cate cut a striking figure. But, the tailored regality of the sculptural top disappeared a bit with the drop-crotch pants, which can be something of an acquired taste.
