None of us would’ve assumed that those two looks would be hinting that the Australian actress would become the newest House Ambassador for Louis Vuitton.
The iconic actress was captured by photographer Sølve Sundsbø in an expressive series of portraits for Louis Vuitton’s latest High Jewellery collection, Spirit.
Styled in angular, monochromatic looks, both actress and jewellery beguile in the House Ambassador’s first campaign for the Maison.
Through five pared-back shots, Cate Blanchett effortlessly embodies the collection’s themes – Liberty, Fantasy, Grace, Radiance and Destiny; themes chosen by Artistic Director of Watches and Jewellery, Francesca Amfitheatrof, for highlighting values dear to the story of Louis Vuitton.
Cate said, “I am extremely excited to have this opportunity to collaborate with Louis Vuitton – a truly iconic House with an enormous cultural reach. To wear the magnificent pieces created by Francesca Amfitheatrof is a bedazzling pleasure, and Nicolas Ghesquiere, as ever, amazes and inspires me.”
Synonymous herself with elegance and charm, Cate Blanchett personifies not only a collection steeped in storytelling but the strength, spirit, and timelessness of Louis Vuitton women.
The campaign will launch in print on 2nd July.
Who is excited to see more of Cate Blanchett in Louis Vuitton on the red carpet, and what do you think about Louis Vuitton snapping up every major actress from continent?
