An Open Letter To The Louis Vuitton Manager Who Allegedly Said “Black People Are Slaves Who Eat Dirt”

louis vuitton

I understand that an employee at the Louis Vuitton Townhouse in London’s Selfridges department store, after being subjected to many of your humiliating, infuriating, racist rants, recorded one of your many outbursts. In your recently outed diatribe, you allegedly state: “Black people are slaves who eat dirt off the floor.” I’m hopeful you’ve come to realize the gravity of your predicament, considering your actions on behalf of Louis Vuitton will be tried in court on the grounds of racial discrimination and harassment; restitution for which could cost your employer millions of dollars. It’s hard to imagine you’ll work in the industry again, but my concern for your future work-placement is less pressing at this particular moment. Your hate and ignorance is also of lesser importance.What is more deeply troubling is the prevalent racism found in the high fashion industry of which you are a representative — well, were, anyways.

New Louis Vuitton Ads Showcase Michelle Williams’ Flawless Brows And Ability To Wear Any Lip Color

I’ve had last fall’s Louis Vuitton ads starring Michelle Williams pinned on my eyebrow vision board for months now (What? You don’t have a vision board dedicated to achieving your ideal brows?). I’m beyond thrilled that she’s been tapped as the face of the brand’s spring accessories campaign, if only because it gives me some fresh brow inspiration. The new images do not disappoint, showcasing Michelle (and her brows) cavorting with luxe Vuitton purses and luggage, rocking a variety of coordinated lipstick and nail polish shades. Predictably, she looks amazing in every color. Click through for a sneak peek of the ads you’ll see in all the spring fashion mags!

As a huge proponent of dark, bold eyebrows on blondes (“DARKER! DAARRRRKER!” — me, to the woman who tints my naturally invisible brows), I am obsessed with these Louis Vuitton fall/winter ads starring Michelle Williams. I mean, the purse and the dress and the hair and the lips and the nail polish and the bone structure are all great, but those brows! Perfection. [People Style Watch]

It’s no secret that Lady Gaga’s been having some health problems of late. In February, she cancelled her Born This Way tour, after sustaining a labral tear in her hip. For the past several weeks she’s been recovering from hip surgery and has been seen in all manner of fancy, upscale wheelchairs. Her latest luxe chair is a specially made Louis Vuitton chair that she’s been rolling around in while visiting her boyfriend (and maybe fiance) Taylor Kinney, on the set of his middling TV show, “Chicago Fire.” Seriously, have you seen it? How do these things get made?

In any case, Gaga was in Chicago visiting Kinney for her 27th birthday, which she spent at a fancy Italian restaurant and the Polekatz Gentlemen’s Club. This lady rolls hardcore. As for how much the LV wheels might run, we’re estimating somewhere in the $20,000 to $30,000 range. Just a guess. [Photo: Flame Flynet]

Lindsay looks… hungry. For brains. And Louis Vuitton. Seriously, she is eyeballing the shit out of that briefcase. Her lawyer should know better by now than to leave his fine leather goods within eyeshot. Or maybe it’s a trap? [BuzzFeed]

Fashion loves anything that straddles the very fine line between what is provocative and what is tasteless, and of course that includes romanticizing the blackened underbelly of society. If you don’t believe me, please consider the “heroin chic” phenomenon of the mid-nineties. (Also, consider the unsettling existence of a wikiHow article called “How to be Heroin Chic.”) So I guess fashion was like, “What’s gritty and ‘underground’ that we can glamorize with models and fancy clothes?,” and then they decided that prostitution would be perfect. Louis Vuitton’s latest short film (in collaboration with Katie Grand of Love magazine) features top catwalkers Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Saskia de Brauw, Isabeli Fontana, Lily McMenamy, Georgia Jagger, and Magdalena Frackowiak as Parisian reines de la nuit drifting about the city streets in the brand’s romantic, lingerie-inspired Fall ’13 collection. Their path eventually leads to the actual show, where they take to the runway in the same wares. I don’t know what they are trying to say with this vague storyline — clearly they are trying to say something — but the video is pretty, and the music is nice, and hey, prostitutes! It’s not too explicit, but there are a few boobs and butts, so be wary should you work at, like, a church or something. [The Gloss]

Guy Looks We Love: The Hottest Dudes From The Paris Runway Shows

Guys, I have a really tough job. I have to spend part of today ogling hot male models, looking for cool new menswear looks from the Paris fashion shows. Shed a few tears for me, will you? I’ve slaved over this gallery of hot guys in looks we love, just for you. Take a look, please.

Generally, I’m for taking a measured approach to travelwear, one that Jada Pinkett-Smith obviously doesn’t share. Here she is, decked out in Louis freaking Vuitton, wearing heels-to-there as she and her kids Willow and Jaden depart from LAX. And man, is she totally working it. So much so that the airport custodian behind her is probably like, “who is this royal bitch that just rolled through here?” Indeed. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Love It Or Leave It: Kristen Stewart’s Monochromatic Playsuit Is Risky Business

Kristen Stewart‘s pained “Twilight” red-carpet expressions usually give me sympathy neurosis, but look at how happy and confident she looks in this Louis Vuitton playsuit! It’s almost (almost) enough to make me rescind my Never Ever Ever Please God No position on rompers, but you know, I don’t think that’ll be necessary because Kristen may very well be the only person who could pull off such a difficult silhouette so beautifully. This is definitely a divisive look, and you’re either going to love it or loathe it. I stand firmly in the former category — I think it might even be my favorite Kristen look ever, and her makeup is to die for. To which I say: nailed it. Are you with me on this one, or do you think playsuits, even Louis Vuitton ones, should stay on the swingset?

Models Two-By-Two Down Escalators At Louis Vuitton

Marc Jacobs’ designing is often rife with a pastiche of cultural references from the past. His latest collection for Louis Vuitton is no different, directly pulling from mod ’60s styles. While the collection was pretty, and pretty unsurprising, its display was anything but: Jacobs sent his models down one of four specially painted escalators, which gave the show the appearance of being at a very, very high end mall.
