Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton – ‘Testament Of Youth’ London Premiere

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton - 'Testament Of Youth' London Premiere

Alicia Vikander posed on the red carpet this evening (January 5) for the London premiere of ‘Testament Of Youth’ held at the Empire Leicester Square.

The Swedish actress wore look from the most popular red carpet brand of 2014: Louis Vuitton, selecting her second look from the Spring 2015 collection.

While the 70s inspired peasant dress crafted from crisp white cotton and finished with perforated panels, girlish ruffles and contrasting black detailing is fresh and youthful with plenty of feminine flare, it doesn’t, as least for me, quite befit a movie premiere.

It’s not that I’m expecting an Elie Saab gown; just something that feels not so casual. This would’ve been perfect for tomorrow’s photocall and or a Disney premiere.

Do you agree?

On the plus side, for once I actually adore these Louis Vuitton boots.

Most Worn Brand 2014 – Louis Vuitton

Most Worn Brand 2014 - Louis Vuitton

Hardly a day has passed in the fashion universe when the Louis Vuitton letters have been missing from the red carpet. The constellation of stars who wore the venerable French label are as numerable and varied as the ensembles themselves.

Call it a mild obsession among the celebrity set.

Among the devotees who pulled off the edgier, fashion-forward statements were Nicole Kidman in a custom, floral-embellished red gown, along with French beauty Adèle Exarchopoulos in full-on flower-power mode. Likewise Julianne Moore upped the ante and the edge factor in her burgundy leather top and sparkling, spiral skirt, also custom. Even designer Victoria Beckham stepped foot out of her own eponymous label for Louis Vuitton, wearing a more mannish vest and trousers combo.

The most dedicated darlings of the brand—and really, to its designer, Nicolas Ghesquière—were rarely, if at all, dressed without that LV monogram on the tags, even favouring the more eccentric Spring 2015 collection on many occasions. Charlotte Gainsbourg tops the list of Nicolas’s most faithful, often donning the top-to-toe runway looks or custom-made creations like a two-piece, sequin gown at the Venice Film Festival.

Jennifer Connelly was right at her heels, as she plucked out look after LV look, including a particularly interesting trompe l’oeil mini and lace tights. Michelle Williams drank the designer Kool-Aid, too, stepping outside her standard style in outfits including a white leather dress, whimsically printed in lipsticks, nail polish, eyelash curlers and the like.

We may not have always liked what Louis was dishing out—especially not those leg-stumping ankle boots. But there’s no denying that 2014 was a power year for the powerful brand.

Pierre Paulin x Louis Vuitton Exhibition Dinner

Louis Vuitton celebrate the 'PLAYING WITH SHAPES'  Pierre Paulin Exhibitions

Louis Vuitton hosted a dinner party during Art Basel in Miami, Florida, on Tuesday (December 2) to celebrate the Pierre Paulin’s exhibition where the celebs were of course wearing Louis Vuitton.

Kate Hudson: I was surprised to see Kate in Louis Vuitton, as she doesn’t strike me as an LV girl under Nicolas Ghesquière’s leadership, yet she picked the right look for her style, donning an ultra-feminine colourful Resort 2015 frock styled with the brand’s signature clutch for the season, and thankfully shunning those LV Fall 2014 booties for a safe pair of nude Louboutin pumps. You may remember that Gisele Bündchen wore a similar dress in a more vibrant hue during the 2014 World Cup.

Michelle Williams: Is it a top or a dress? Either way, this Louis Vuitton Spring 2015 contrast-print zipper-accented piece is dangerously short yet I admire Michelle for not wearing this look with the lace leggings/tights. Michelle, like Charlotte Gainsbourg and Jennifer Connelly, continues to be a very loyal ambassador for the brand. This is yet another leap outside her comfort zone, but one she pulls off with ease.

Miranda Kerr: The model, who has been trying to work an edgier angle of late, would’ve been expected to select an uber-feminine mini frock like Kate, yet she didn’t do the predictable, selecting a head-to-toe LV Spring 2015 look with a bit more bite.

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton – 2014 British Independent Film Awards

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton - 2014 British Independent Film Award copy

Alicia Vikander attended the 2014 British Independent Film Awards held at Old Billingsgate Market on Sunday (December 7) in London, England.

The Swedish actress wore a Louis Vuitton Spring 2015 look featuring a sequinned top and trousers with leather patches on the knee, which made me think of the eyes of the Terminator.

As LV looks go, this is one of the better ones in recent times, probably because it doesn’t have that samey vibe I was getting from recent looks, nor has she worn the collection to death like two people I could mention.

When it came to this look, I recognised it from the feet up. I still can’t get over how god-awful those Louis Vuitton shoes are.

Models @ The 2014 British Fashion Awards

Models @ The 2014 2014 British Fashion Awards

A host of models held court at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, where the runway stunners took to the red carpet at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

Daisy Lowe: She may have been dressed in shades of blush-pink, but there was a sexy side to all that sweetness with her Antonio Berardi asymmetrical, figure-hugging gown that was slit to her hip. A heart-embellished clutch by Charlotte Olympia finished the look on a lighthearted note.

Suki Waterhouse: From shades of pink to shades of blue, the model subscribed to the sheer trend in a Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 tiered and pleated, navy ombre-inspired frock that was perhaps one shade too see-through. Gold metallic sandals provided a spirited contrast, but the baby-blue edged purse had no business here.

Joan Smalls: This Tom Ford scoop-neck LBD was sliced and diced with side cutouts and slits galore. She completed the skin-baring look with black Givenchy heels and a Rauwolf clutch.
