Louis Vuitton Accused of Promoting Prostitution in New Film
During a fitting in Paris for Louis Vuitton's fall 2013 runway show, Katie Grand and filmmaker James Lima shot some of the show's top models in (and out of) the collection--much of which was lingerie or lingerie-inspired--for a short film. Featuring disheveled-looking girls in various states of undress getting into cars and lurking in dark alleys, the film may or may not allude to certain lady of the evening activities. Like much of what Grand does with her magazine Love (uh strip teases and fashion nativity videos, anyone?) the film is tongue in cheek, and playfully risque--but a few powerful organizations in Europe aren't taking the matter lightly.

Challenging the notion that Marc Jacobs's latest collection for Louis Vuitton--comprised largely of slips, playsuits and negligees--is only appropriate for the bedroom, several of the show's top models took them out to the streets.
