Louis Vuitton opened up a three story shop on New Bond Street in London with 1,500 square meters of accessories, jewelry, and clothing. The building features a glass staircase with an LED displays that constantly changes, a wall of trunks and cases suspended from cables, a bookstore, a invitation-only “apartment” for VIP shoppers, and a men’s club area with sofas and tables. Clearly this calls for a lavish, expensive celebration. Champagne will be flowing for the gala at a top secret location tonight, but today the stars showed up to shop.
It was an afternoon of dresses and full skirts, except for Luke Evans. Kirsten Dunst headed from the beaches of Cannes to the shop in London in a long navy and blue dress, while Iron Man 2 actress Gwyenth Paltrow took on a serious plunging neckline and a glittery purple bag that sure doesn’t look Louis Vuitton.
