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

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…

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 give…

Michelle Williams And Her Eyebrows Are The New Face Of Louis Vuitton

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…

Of Course Lady Gaga Has A Louis Vuitton Wheelchair

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…

Lindsay Lohan Will Steal Your Soul First, Then Move On To Your Louis Vuitton Bag

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]…

Watch Top Models Play Parisian Prostitutes In This Louis Vuitton Short Film

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…

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,…

Well Played: Jada Pinket Smith’s Plane-Ready Look

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 i…

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 Kriste…

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…

Did Michael Phelps Fart In The Louis Vuitton Bathtub?

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,…

You Really Need This Louis Vuitton Waffle Maker

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]…

All Dotty: Louis Vuitton’s Yayoi Kusama Collaboration

We've long been obsessed with the life and art of Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese artist who has obsessively made polka dot art for the last forty years. It seems Louis Vuitton shares our interest -- and has released images of its collection inspired by Kusama. Sadly, the collection is only available in a few…

Love It Or Leave It: Kirsten Dunst’s Country-Couture Look?

Expect to see spots aplenty in the very near future — Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama will be the subject of several pop-up shops around the globe this summer, but the avant-garde visionary won't just be selling prints. Kusama has teamed up with none other than Louis Vuitton to create a capsule collection of clothing and…

I Want To Go To There: Louis Vuitton’s Custom Train

Remember the custom-built, $8 million train that rolled into the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter show at Paris Fashion Week a few months ago? It isn't being put in storage just yet--in fact, it's been reconstructed in a New York studio to serve as the backdrop for the collection's ad campaign. Steven Meisel shot the ads,…

Muhammad Ali Is The Latest Face Of Louis Vuitton’s “Core Values” Campaign

Most ads for luxury goods star one of many generically beautiful it girls of the moment, but Louis Vuitton's Core Values campaign steers in a less likely direction by featuring exceptional celebrities recognized for much more than aesthetics. For the latest installment in the series, the French high-fashion house tapped legendary heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad…

Marc Jacobs Rocks A Pink Polo Dress

Marc Jacobs attended the Louis Vuitton exhibition at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris last week wearing this semi-sheer knee-length pink polo dress. When I was 12, I had my own knee-length pink polo dress from Lands' End (which was also semi-sheer, although it took me a year to realize it), and I ca…

Marc Jacobs Sends A Real Live Locomotive Down The Runway At Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton is basically synonymous with luxury, so it's no surprise that the brand goes all-out for its shows … especially with one Marc Jacobs at the helm. If you thought last season's stunning life-size carousel was unbeatable, well, think again. As is fitting for a collection heavily influenced by "the golden age of…

Love It Or Hate It: Sarah Jessica Parker Goes Sheer At Louis Vuitton

I'm not trying to be a jerk, but there's something kind of inappropriate about seeing Sarah Jessica Parker's bra at this point, don't you think? It's like, geez, just put it away already, okay? That said, you know I love a sheer lace thing.

Be Part Of Louis Vuitton’s “Fan Club”

Designer collection videos keep getting more and more elaborate (see this Proenza Schouler video for proof). This new campaign film for Louis Vuitton, made under the creative direction of Katie Grand, plays on the showgirl films of yore and features models doing synchronized fan dances. It's a gorgeous video, but one note: it'…
