Sophie Turner, Emma Stone, Ruth Negga, and Sienna Miller were some of the celebrities which turned out for the star-studded show held in South of France.
After serving as a long-time ambassador of Louis Vuitton, Jennifer Conelly finally has the chance to add the ‘’Voice of Vuitton’’ tag to her CV.
The brand’s cruise show was held in the gardens of Foundation Maeght modern art museum in Saint Paul de Vence, France. And as the models walked on the ramp, it was her voice that spoke the words ‘’I was 15 when I fell madly in love for the first time.’’
In addition to this, Conelly also spoke about shooting on film, lines about cellphones, and landing in trouble with the authorities. The words, which started from a slow repeat, slowly turned into a cacophony as the show progressed.
Speaking after the show, Conelly revealed that the lines were a memoir for designer Nicolas Ghesquiere written by iconic fashion editor Grace Coddington in 2012. It was Ghesquiere who eventually turned these phrases into a soundtrack by Woodkid remixing them.
These phrases, however, weren’t the only ones on repeat throughout the show. Instead, ‘’Maybe we’ll see’’ was another forceful phrase thumping on repeat.
Maybe, it was an effort from Ghesquiere to throw out a myriad of ideas to see what sticks, because the show itself was a diverse mix as it included everything from drawstring shorts to cowboy hats. There were tan jackets with Elizabethan collar and lingerie with a flowing embroidered robe.
Also, while both the bombers and Rain jackets had the Louis Vuitton logo on the inside, you couldn’t see it until the sleeve was turned up or the collar was propped. There were Archlight trainers, too, though Ghesquiere had turned them into thigh-high, ultra-slim boots with a gold sole and patent leather.
The show was attended by a myriad of celebrities and sitting in the front row were Justin Theroux, Emma Stone, Sophie Turner, Ruth Negga, Sienna Miller, Laura Harrier, and Lea Seydoux. Connelly, meanwhile, was sitting alongside French actresses Camelia Jordana, Isabelle Huppert, and Marina Fos.
