The Most Beautiful Louis Vuitton Ad I Have Ever Seen

The Most Beautiful Louis Vuitton Ad I Have Ever Seen

After my quick jaunt to Detroit to get my heart broken and to New York City to lift my spirit and visit friends, I flew back home to the Philippines for a mere 5 hours only to unpack and repack before rushing to the airport to catch my flight.

I'm now in Singapore.

On my way here, I picked up a copy of Financial Times and I saw the most beautiful Louis Vuitton advert I have ever seen in the longest time.

Louis Vuitton Ad Campaign

It's stunning. I've stared at this captivating ad for quite some time, wondering who this woman is. It looks like one of those very old portraits (Vermeer, anyone?) from the past that you can only see at museums… but at the same time, it also looks so modern and timeless. I love the emphasis on craftmanship versus the usual high-voltage, high-gloss celeb/model ads…

Refreshingly discreet for the MEGAbrand luxury powerhouse that monogram built, no?

Aliona Doletskaya’s Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2010 Bag

You’ve seen Victoria Beckham debut that cheeky and chic Louis Vuitton messenger bag with the fox fur tail keychain. Well, here’s yet another bag from the Spring/Summer 2010 collection, this time it’s Aliona Doletskaya’s, beside from my very old Goyard. Like what I said before, I went straight to the Vogue Russia office as soon as I landed into Moscow after traveling for 26 hours with no time to drop my bags or change clothes at the hotel.

You honestly have no idea how GLAD I am not to have worn pyjamas to the airport (like I usually do)….

Cour Carrée Musée du Louvre Paris

Cour Carrée Musée du Louvre Paris

The lovely Fred of Easy Fashion, one of my favourite French streetstyle blogs, took this wonderful photo of me at the Cour Carrée Musée du Louvre where the Louis Vuitton show took place yesterday.

Cour Carrée Musée du Louvre Paris

Jacket, leather pants and shoes from Rad Hourani, Chanel bag, Marc Jacobs sunglasses, Topshop t-shirt.

Between you and me, I'm shocked that I look nice (ok, presentable, but I could've WERQED the LOOQUE harder) in this photo. I was all sweaty, coughing, huffing and puffing when I got to the show venue because I sprinted (in five inch heels) from the wrong metro station. Not good.

But the result, well, voila, pas mal…

Thank you Fred!

Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2010 Video – Final Walkthrough

Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2010 Video – Final Walkthrough 

So here’s the view from my seat.

Amazing! Halfway throughout the show, my feet were thumping along the music and I wanted to dance. I’m sure the Japanese guy beside me must have been giving me looks. Who knows? It’s a good thing that it was dark. Hah!

Oh and btw, I’m gonna save money from this point on so when the next season comes, I’ll have a super fabu camera that will take decent videos. Add that to my Christmas wish list. I know most indie bloggers (like myself) put material out there that’s “raw” etc. but there are times when I really want to capture moments clearly and precisely so when I present it to you, you can see it the way I’m seeing it.. know what I mean? I hope so.

Monsieur Bryan Boy

Every fashion-obsessed child's dream is to own a Louis Vuitton bag. Well, after all these years of loving Louis Vuitton, the time has arrived. It's an honor to be invited to the delightfully colourful Louis Vuitton womenswear show earlier this afternoon. My first ever LV show, can you believe it? Yes, here in Paris in the center of it all (not in Hong Kong, Singapore or worse, Manila), at the Louvre!!!!!

Thank you so much for having me there and hope to see the show next season!

Pictures and videos to follow. The hair, the bags, the fox fur tails, the shoes, my god, I don't even know where to begin!
