>> It's monumental, it is. After starting the whole celebrity-instead-of-model trend with Jennifer Lopez and Uma Thurman, Marc Jacobs is reverting back to old school for Louis Vuitton. "We just wanted a fashion icon more than the celebrity thing," Jacobs explained over cola and cigarettes at the China Club. "I certainly feel Gisele is iconic and recognized all over the world as Gisele. Also, the clothes were hot and sexy and colorful, and we thought she would exaggerate the strength and the heat of the collection."
So here Miss Gisele is, working different poses and handbags for each month: yellow suede for February, perforated monogram for March, printed silk scarf bags for April, denim ones for May and a multicolored fringed number for June. "It's the bag-of-the-month club," Jacobs teased. How tempting. Tempting for me to vomit, that is. Not because I hate Gisele, but because something about Louis Vuitton is just always off to me...like those abnormally vivid colors you're seeing.
