So understand I say this with no disrespect to either Monsieur Ghesquière or every other actress in Hollywood, but: Why does literally anyone else even bother to wear Ghesquière's designs for Louis Vuitton?

Connelly has been Ghesquière's longtime muse and it's not hard to see why. Here, she takes a series of what could be fussy or complicated pieces from Louis Vuitton — a dress featuring florals, studs and a cape detail at the sleeves; a contrasting, structural floral belt; a white-and-black trunk bag; cream Mary Jane heels with a double buckle — and makes them look as easy and as comfortable as my mismatched college tee and sweatpants combo. What the hell!!! And how?!
