(PARIS) Louis Vuitton
Marc Jacobs welcomed the sartorial set to Hotel Vuitton this morning, or rather the Cour Carrée du Louvre, where the designer transformed the palatial museum into a carpeted runway flanked by damask wallpaper walls and wooden doors opening to intimate guest quarters. One by one, mods wearing dark, shaggy wigs sashayed down the aisle to the beats of Alexandre Desplat's "River" in sultry '40s silhouettes—slinky slipdresses edged in lace, coquettish bloomers, velvet or plaid housecoats cinched in at the waist, and pajama pantsuits—before retiring to their respective rooms. As each door swung open, the audience got a glimpse of a shadowy chambre, stacked with LV luggage and lit up with black and white film projected onto the walls showcasing various old-timey bedroom scenes. In the midst of the boudoir-style spectacle, Kate Moss made a surprise cameo in a transparent floral gown as hubby Jamie Hince cheered from the sidelines, along with fellow VIPS Elizabeth Olsen, Jessica Chastain, and Naomi Watts. Post show, Jacobs made his own appearance at the PJ party in, what else, red silk jammies.
