I adored every little single thing about the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter '10 collection Marc Jacob's put on in Paris yesterday. It was pure Parisian sexy chic circa 1950s & early 60s through and through reminiscent of the days of Bardot. He sent curvier models down the runway including Laetitia Casta, Bar Refaeli, Rose Huntington Whiteley, Catherine McNeil, Karolina Kurkova, and Elle Macpherson.
Now these girls aren't real women curvy but they certainly look it on the runway compared to what we're used to seeing. We saw it first this season at Prada and now at LV. To enhance the whole bigger is better theme, Marc dressed the ladies in corsets that pushed breasts up and out and full skirts that accentuated the hips. In some instances it was a little much and borderlined on dowdy but overall I can't help but love him for it and love how designers are starting to embrace curves. I certainly hope this is a trend that continues.
