>> Kate Moss, who closed the Louis Vuitton show last season while smoking a cigarette, was back on the Spring 2012 Vuitton runway today, again closing out the show. "She asked us to do the show," Marc Jacobs explained in an interview done right afterward. Surely, the brand was none too pleased — apparently more than 2,000 pairs of the fetish boots Moss wore in the Fall 2011 show (which retailed at $2,363) have been sold.
See Jacobs talk about the show in the video below — apparently, since the show revolved around a carousel, there was a carousel horse in the Vuitton office during fittings for all the models to pose on. And Jacobs says something that throws into question whether he really wants to head to Dior: “I could never do this anywhere else, do you know what I mean? Not only the Paris thing, but Vuitton, allows me."
>> Last night at Raspoutine restaurant in Paris, Carine Roitfeld hosted her vampire ball, bringing out Arnaults, Courtin-Clarins, and, of course, Roitfelds, in a largely red, white, and black dress code. Anna Dello Russo wore a huge, red-feathered Stephen Jones For Giles swan on her head; Roitfeld, Miranda Kerr, and Anja Rubik donned extra-heavy kohl; and Karlie Kloss bared skin in her slashed Anthony Vaccarello dress. Vamps, too, were out in full force: Abbey Lee Kershaw and Olivier Theyskens brought out their fangs while Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld and Riccardo Tisci bloodied their mouths.
