Nicolas Ghesquiere, who now designs for Vuitton, is my favorite designer because he can push the fashion envelope in way that is intelligent, sexy and modern—no kitschy pratfalls or nostalgia for the past. Everyone seems to agree that the collection he showed the other day was one of his best in a while. Ghesquiere’s designs can be complex and you have to think them through a bit in order for them to make sense.
It would take a special woman to pull off a whole runway look—including the Kristen Stewart hair and makeup. Which is why I’m showing close-up shots—because if you deconstruct the looks, you end up with some incredible pieces….a vest, a capelet/jacket, the gold-buttoned top and skirt. And the boots that came in about a dozen variations? I suggest getting on the wait list as soon as you can.
