-------

In the age of Instagram, all it takes is a smartphone to achieve a photo finish, be it filtered or #nofilter-ed. That’s why Style.com’s social media editor, Rachel Walgrove, is rounding up our favorite snaps and bringing them into focus. For this very special edition of Insta-Gratification, she’ll be calling out the best shots from #PFW. See below for today’s picks.

What I love most about this picture is that Jared Leto took it.

EXCLUSIVE: Juergen Teller Lenses Nicolas Ghesquière’s Vision for Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton Fall 2014

We waited for months and it was over in moments—Nicolas Ghesquière’s wildly anticipated debut show for Louis Vuitton marched down the runway in Paris this morning. And at the height of the LV by NG frenzy, the house sent us an exclusive first look at A Dozen Girls, a series of photographs by Juergen Teller. Shot at the brand’s headquarters, the portfolio presents twelve looks from the new collection on twelve models. CLICK TO VIEW THE SLIDESHOW. As the show notes declared, “The timeless is now.”

Plus: Be sure to check out our runway coverage to see Ghesquière’s complete Louis Vuitton lineup.

EXCLUSIVE: A First Look at Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton Teaser

The wait is almost over. Tomorrow at 10 a.m. Paris time, Nicolas Ghesquière will unveil his debut collection for Louis Vuitton, the most anticipated show of this, or perhaps any, season. Despite the speculation that has swirled around town all week, the house has managed to keep a tight lid on what to expect. Here then, direct from Louis Vuitton headquarters on the rue du Pont Neuf, is your first hint of the shape of things to come. The enigmatic image of the model Rianne, shot by Juergen Teller and poised somewhere on the knife edge of innocence and chic, probably raises more questions than it answers, but let the guessing begin. And be sure to tune in tomorrow at 10 a.m. CET (4 a.m. EST) for our full coverage of the show, including more exclusive behind-the-scenes photographs by Teller.

Exclusive: LVMH Reveals the Forty Heavy Hitters on Its LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers Experts Panel

LVMH Panel of Experts

Back in November, we broke the news that LVMH was launching its new 300,000-euro LVMH Prize for Young Designers. After applications close on February 2, an LVMH team will select thirty promising talents from the long list of hopefuls. And during Paris fashion week, those up-and-comers will present their collections to an esteemed panel of forty industry insiders. Today, we can reveal the heavy hitters who will be sitting in the judges’ seats, and boy, if the fact that 300K is on the line doesn’t give the contestants butterflies, the international powerhouses set to survey their work just might. Central Saint Martins’ Louise Wilson, stylist Olivier Rizzo, Net-a-Porter’s Natalie Massenet, stylist Camilla Nickerson, Colette’s Sarah Andelman, Dover Street Market’s Adrian Joffe, and editor Katie Grand are just some of the experts in the group. Of course, we can’t leave out Style.com’s own Tim Blanks and Jo-Ann Furniss, who will be joining their peers in narrowing down the pool from thirty to ten designers. As for the ultimate winner, we’ll have to hold our breath until May, when a group including Nicolas Ghesquière, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Humberto Leon, Carol Lim, Phoebe Philo, Raf Simons, and Riccardo Tisci, as well as Delphine Arnault, Jean-Paul Claverie, and Pierre-Yves Roussel decide who wins the grand prize. But considering the knowledge and taste levels the members of LVMH’s panel boast, it’s going to be worth the wait. Take a look at the full list of judges, below. As for the ultimate winner, we’ll have to hold our breath…
