The Louis Vuitton show is always a big celebrity draw and after almost two years of restrictions, when so many people couldn’t travel, today’s presentation brought out the stars, some of whom haven’t been seen all that often during the pandemic. Like Emma Stone who matched in ginger and black with fellow Oscar winner Julianne Moore.
Emma made the press rounds last spring for the release of Cruella but since then, she’s kept a pretty low profile with a newborn at home. I don’t think we even talked about her daughter’s name – Louise Jean, after her grandmother.
Emma’s LV look today has a lot of Cruella energy, specifically Estella energy – there’s a uniform vibe to it, to both her outfit and Julianne’s too. That works for me. Military-slash-uniform has been my style jam all year and it’s clearly going to ride out the rest of 2022.
Sophie Turner, also a redhead and also an LV ambassador, was there too wearing the red version of the sandal-booties we first saw on Jung Ho-yeon back in November at the CFDAs.
Jennifer Connelly, an LV regular for years, chose the red version too. Every year LV puts out a must-have shoe. This is mine, I want them so badly and they’ll be impossible to find.
Gemma Chan was also wearing the sandal-booties today as the finishing touch to what might be the standout look among all celebrities at Louis Vuitton. LOOK AT THIS MASTERPIECE:
My legs gave out when I saw these pictures. The cape. The strong shoulders. The collar. The sheer, the leather… it’s giving superhero and military and school uniform all the same f-cking time, OH MY GOD.
But we’re not done with the big name attendees. Ava DuVernay was an LV guest too – in a white jumpsuit under a leather vest, also excellent:
And we can keep going. I’m going to, because you have to see this white jacket on Cynthia Erivo. It’s spectacular.
You know who wasn’t there and has been associated with LV in the past? Michelle Williams. I wonder if the partnership is over. There are several celebrities who’ve been super quiet during the pandemic, and she’s been one of the quietest. She’s been papped once in two years and she hasn’t made a single official public appearance after she and Thomas Kail had their baby.
