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: While I liked the prim, darling nature of her girly, grommet leather frock, the addition of the mesh white, long-sleeve shirt and white gogo boots just didn’t flow with the signature handbag. It needed to be one or the other.
Jennifer Connelly: We all have seen Jennifer in many variations of the LV label—and sometimes the far-out edge works for her. Here, I would have to say it did not. I kept trying to identify what this look reminded me of—and I think it came down to a mishmash of galactic superhero and futuristic cowgirl.
Léa Seydoux: The French actress dressed in her Parisian-chic best with the fun pop of her handbag adding a whimsical finish to the polished look.
Ruth Negga: Bringing her own unique style personality to this look, Ruth punched up this suede, western-inspired trench with the quirky punch of plush animal print and platform boots.
Fan Bingbing: As Fan was swallowed up a bit by the expanse of sleeves and lace here, I think an updo would have helped the situation.
Laura Harrier: I loved this more classic-mod take on the Louis Vuitton brand, as Laura wore this mini perfectly paired with a signature LV handbag and booties.
Riley Keough: This was yet another instance where I struggled with the motley mix of pieces. The tough edge of the black leather was a hard sell with the blue-satin, nightgown mood of the ruffle gown.
Jaden Smith: There was plenty of hip-hop spirit infused into Jaden’s look that featured a logo-soup jacket paired with slouchy, electric-blue track pants.
Raffey Cassidy: Raffey also wore a long-sleeve shirt under her sleeveless dress, but here it presented more seamlessly with the knee-high boots also echoing the colour-block effect.
Rila Fukushima: Sporty-chic in black and white, Rila cut a cool profile with her plush, cropped coat and leather pants. The funkiness of her mock cowboy boots and clutch completed the look.
Catherine Deneuve: Showing off how intriguing a monochromatic black colour palette can be, Catherine combined edginess with elegance in her leather coat and LBD.
