Louis Vuitton Rides The White Horse
Oh no big deal, it’s just Kate Moss closing the Marc Jacobs designed Louis Vuitton show by stepping off of a moving carousel. We adore the showmanship of the fashion shows abroad, but an actual carousel is taking the cake this season! With a dramatic reveal to the crowd, the children’s ride transformed into a model ride as Vuitton’s spring 2012 collection made its way onto the circular catwalk. There were 48 white horses, one for each of Jacobs’ 48 looks. After last season’s smokin’ show with Moss, he lightened things up with a dash of innocence for spring. Although, we were surprised to hear the supermodel requested to walk in the show and not vice versa. “She asked to be in the show,” the designer said backstage at Louis Vuitton, “and she’s a very dear friend so…happy to oblige.”
Parading off of the horses were models clad in dresses with daisy motifs adorned with feathers in an array pastel hues. Accessory wise, a few models toted open parasols and handbags showed off a sweeter side with their signature LV design. Lastly, shoes were appeared to all have a casual heel, while some had clear and metal materials blocked together. The visually stunning set made the looks feel that much more special.
You can watch the spectacle unfold below. Skip to 6:55 to see Moss close the show.
