Yesterday Chad and I attended the Louis Vuitton spring 2010 show, at the Louvre. This is my formal invitation. Chad and I picked them up at the LV head quarters just a couple of hours before the show. Actually, the reason we flew to Europe so much earlier this fall than the Art Fair 21, is so that we could attend it. Fabrizio invited us a few months ago and I was very excited to see a couture fashion show in person.
It was extremely awesome and fabulous. We took a short video of the last couple of minutes on the runway and some pictures back stage, after the show. I saw some celebrities whom I recognized and a bunch more whom I didn’t. The back stage party was actually longer than the runway show itself. Chad and I hung out for an hour or so. I drank a lot of champagne.
We met up with Fabrizio Viti, the LV shoe designer back stage. He is holding a bag that contains his new Enchanted Doll. He took her to the show with him!
Actress Camilla Belle giving interviews.
Fabrizio showing and telling me about the shoes he had designed for this collection and which the models just wore on the runway. I’m holding my favorite one.
I met and talked to the beautiful Natalia Vodianova. It was rather surreal meeting her in person since I have known about this model and referenced her face in painting my dolls for a long time. She is just as beautiful in person as she is on magazines covers. I told her that I was going to sculpt her face for my dolls and she thought it was a fabulous idea. Although, I think that she didn’t take it seriously. I saw her husband, Justin Portman there too. It’s funny, we are the same age her and I, yet she felt quite a bit older than me because she is so tall, beautiful and has 3 childern. Very sweet girl.Â We posed for a picture together but the camera battery died at that very moment.Â Hopefully I will get another chance for a photo at a future show.
These look just like dolls, but they are photos of the runway models in their outfits stuck to a wall. On that scale they look just like dolls.
Afterward Chad and I sat by the glass pyramid and the fountains in the Louver square and enjoyed the warm autumn day in Paris. Then we went inside to see some more works of art.
