Ghesquière Taps Major Talents for Louis Vuitton Campaign

-------

VuittonNicolas Ghesquière continues to mold his vision for Vuitton today. WWD reports that the designer has tapped not one, but three leading photographers—Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz, and Juergen Teller—to lens his first campaign for the house. Marc Jacobs often worked with Steven Meisel during his reign at Vuitton, so it will be interesting to see how Ghesquière’s creative relationship with the above bold-faced names develops—if you’ll remember, he tapped Teller to shoot the conceptual Fall ’14 lookbook images (left), which debuted exclusively on Style.com the day of the runway show. Ghesquière’s Fall campaign will feature Liya Kebede (left) and Freja Beha Erichsen (both of whom walked in his Fall show), as well as actress Charlotte Gainsbourg. This move further proves that Ghesquière at Vuitton is a defining force to be reckoned with—as if there was ever any doubt.

Shop the Look: The New Pastels

-------

Shop the Look

Until recently, everyone was always a bit wary of pastels. Were they overly sweet? Or even acceptable over the age of 15? And how were you expected to wear multiple shades without looking like an Easter egg? But thanks to the recent surge of what we like to call “modern pastels”—the same baby pinks, pale yellows, and icy blues but on the most basic of shapes—the hues are coming into their own. The key is to look for uncomplicated pieces that let the color make the statement (bonus points for a cool metallic or patent finish). Mixing lavender with mint green never looked fresher. Shop our favorite pastels by Christopher Kane, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, and more, below.

Regarding Marc Jacobs’ Prada Obsession

-------

FREE ARTS NYC 15th Annual Art Auction with MARC JACOBS  & SCOTT CAMPBELLMarc Jacobs has a weakness for Prada. Specifically, Marc Jacobs has a weakness for women’s Prada overcoats that feature various embellishments. It’s a look that he’s been cultivating for some time.

Consider, for instance, the black, Japanese blossom-adorned number from Spring 2013 he wore to The Great Gatsby premiere last April. (Anna Wintour—coincidentally? —showed up in an identical garb.) Or take his twinsie moment with Love magazine editrix Katie Grand, in which the pair sported matching rainbow fur coats from Miuccia’s Spring 2014 collection. (Grand also styled him in drag for a spread in Industrie a few years back.)

Jacobs continued his streak at last night’s 15th annual Free Arts NYC Art Auction, which honored artist Scott Campbell. His topper of choice? A blue, monochromatic—and decidedly fur-less—bejeweled number from Spring 2014. Superfan, indeed.

Lupita Nyong’o Is Headed to the CFDAs

-------

Lupita Nyong'oThe CFDA Fashion Awards just got a little more star power. It was announced today that Lupita Nyong’o will be on hand to present the prestigious Womenswear Designer of the Year Award to Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra, or Marc Jacobs. After landing a Miu Miu ad campaign, being named People‘s Most Beautiful Person, and generally just dazzling the entire world with her elegance and charm, we wouldn’t be surprised if Nyong’o snagged a CFDA Fashion Icon Award by 2015 (the same award Rihanna will pick up this year). Next on our mind: What will she wear to the June 2 awards?
