Chic Report: Marc Jacobs's fall collection for Louis Vuitton was all about exaggerated, over-the-top proportions in the most muted colors like washed-out taupe, lemon, and dove grey. The shapes definitely recalled the eighties, with pear-shaped pants, oversized jackets, and odd, squared-off skirts making a strong showing.

Milla Jovovich agreed, saying, "I want the black and wool skirts as fast as I can get my hands on them!"
