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]
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?
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.
Olympic swimmer/world record breaker/real life superhero Michael Phelps now has another title to add to his impressive resume: Louis Vuitton model. The legendary athlete and alleged retiree is starring in the latest round of Louis Vuitton “Core Values” ad campaigns, shot by Annie Leibovitz. One of the photos shows Phelps reclining in a bathtub, wearing goggles and a Speedo, showing off his amazing body and—wait, is that a fart bubble between his legs? OK, OK, so it’s probably just a weird shadow or the outline of a drain or something, but I kind of wish it was a fart, if only because, as my boyfriend put it, “That would make his facial expression so much funnier.” [Fashionista]
Because, hello! You need a waffle that effectively conveys your class status. Made by LA-based artist Andrew Lewicki, this LV-waffle maker is totally unlicensed and likely to garner Lewicki a lawsuit any second now. Until then, pass the syzzzzzurp! [Incredible Things]
