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.

Michelle Williams In Louis Vuitton – ‘Wonderstruck’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Michelle Williams was back on the red carpet for the ‘Wonderstruck’ premiere during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival this afternoon (May 18), following the photocall this morning.

While I did expect her to wear custom Louis Vuitton, I didn’t expect to be underwhelmed.

At Cannes, the home of “only your best will do”, this mirco-studded gown falls way short.

I would go as far to say this feels a bit mumsy.

The only brief moment of joy was seeing this in motion as the gown features a split down the side and a draped cape, but alas, I’m clutching at straws.

Michelle Williams In Louis Vuitton – ‘Wonderstruck’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

While Marion Cotillard was showcasing her new found freedom from all things Dior, the Michelle Williams, Louis Vuitton union was still going strong this afternoon (May 18) at the ‘Wonderstruck’ Cannes Film Festival photocall.

Many of you have sighted “different version of the same dress” syndrome when it comes to MW x LV, however, this A-line silhouette punctuated with all-over wave-prints and a flared skirt adding both volume and drama to the overall silhouette can’t be overlooked.

And do you know the best thing about this look?

She’s wearing sandals. Hallelujah.

It’s been some time since a Louis Vuitton muse has be able to showcase her pedicure, as the LV ankle boots have been something of a must-wear with any LV look.

As for tonight, if I’m not typing the words, “Michelle Williams”, “Louis Vuitton” and “blown away” in the same sentence, I will be bitterly disappointed.

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.

Wearable Art Gala

The Wearable Art Gala quite appropriately boasted of a few looks that were nothing short of art pieces themselves, as attendees took to the red carpet in LA on Saturday (April 29).

Beyonce Knowles: The singer didn’t let being pregnant with twins get in the way of stealing the show as she turned heads in a Stephanie Costello for Stello red long-sleeved dress with a plunging neckline that hugged her growing baby bump. But it was the elaborate headdress adorned with butterflies, flowers and dragonflies which really captured my attention.

Yara Shahidi: Her Victoria,Victoria Beckham blouse and jeans combo is a good look for her, yet was so off theme that I was left disappointed.
