So it’s the end of another fashion month, and boy did it end in style with Louis Vuitton‘s creative director, Marc Jacobs calling on some of fashion’s real supermodels to grace is runway. The ladies need no introduction, but in case your spacing out today the Louis Vuitton F/W 2011 runway show had the likes of Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Amber Valetta, Carolyn Murphy, Jessica Stam, Carmen Kass, Natasha Poly and Maria Carla making rare runway appearances.
Of course every news outlet had something to say about how Kate was smoking on the runway (while clad in hot pants and lace up boots), but we were amazed at the theatrics of the show (Chanel, eat your heart out) which included a make-shift lift complete with porters who opened the door for the models to enter the runway. Each girl was also reportedly wore 13cm heels and were handcuffed to their Vuitton bags.
According to the Daily Mail, Marc Jacobs was inspired by the public’s insatiable desire for everything with the LV logo:
“There’s this crazy, almost irrational desire for these objects, these things we create,” Jacobs told a scrum of journalists in a frenzied backstage interview.
“We were thinking about obsession, fetishism and we thought about an old hotel, with its chambermaids and the affairs that go on there, the crimes and scandals. And we just wanted to reveal all the amazing creatures who passed through there.”
Theatrics aside, we loved the show, but the burning question is, will Marc get all those supermodels back in front of the camera for the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2011 ad campaign?
