What Do You Think Of Louis Vuitton’s “Real Women” Models?

It seems that Marc Jacobs is one of the firsts in the fashion industry to do something about the problem of too-young (and thus unattainably thin) models on the runway. As head designer of Louis Vuitton, which presented its fall/winter 2010 collection yesterday in Paris, Jacobs says he wanted to create a more mature image. He tells the Guardian: “Designers are always talking about how they design for women, and then you look at our runways and there are no girls over 20 … This time, I set out to cast a variety of sexy women – younger, older, thin, voluptuous, from every ethnic background.” Kudos to him for also casting Elle Macpherson, who at 46 years old had to be the oldest woman on a Paris catwalk (but no less gorgeous). Tell us what you think of the designs and model casting for the Louis Vuitton collection, and check out runway pics after the jump! [Guardian]
