U.S actress Michelle Williams proved to be a class act in the latest Louis Vuitton campaign, as she posed in a series of chic spring attire from the French fashion house.
The 33 year-old, who is currently starring on Broadway in the New York show Cabaret with Alan Cummings, was asked back by Louis Vuitton for a third time to debut their Spring 2014 campaign.
Ms. Williams was snapped by esteemed photographer Peter Lindberg in a collection of intimate pictures, in which she showcased the French designer’s latest bags, the Capucines and Lockit, which is available in spring shades of sky and dark cobalt blue and soft pink magnolia.
The Lockit bag was originally launched in 1958 and was revamped to a new market back in 2006. To accompany the new bag Louis Vuitton has created a white gold and diamond Lockit bracelet, which has a corresponding padlock, similar to the design of the bag.
The Capucines bag takes its name from the Rue des Capucines in Paris, and is available in black and red. The new Alma bag is slightly smaller than the Lockit and the Capucines and is coloured in bright orange and sherbet yellow.
As well as debuting Louis Vuitton’s latest handbag range, Ms. Williams is shown wearing some of the new Spring 2014 collection, which were first seen on the runway in Paris in March.
New creative director Nicholas Ghesquiere has taken a gamine approach when designing the clothes for the new season, as many of the creations feature turtleneck sweaters and A-line sleeveless dresses.
What we love the most however, about this particular collection is that it is perfectly wearable, and we also love the fashion house’s decision to cast Ms. Williams as the face to front this campaign.
It appears that we are not alone, as the blurb on Louis Vuitton’s very own website states:
“The resulting series of portraits hints at the woman behind the actress, revealing the intriguing balance of force and fragility that made Michelle Williams such a compelling choice as the face of Louis Vuitton.”
Ms. Williams demonstrated a calm demeanor when her performance in the Broadway play Cabaret was interrupted by disturbed actor Shia LaBeouf back in July when he was arrested after causing a disturbance in the audience; it seems that nothing can faze this actress.
LaBeouf was annoying other theatergoers and was heard stating that he was intending to go backstage to ‘slap the behinds’ of the actors, before the police were called and he was led away shouting abuse.
As for Ms. Williams, we look forward to seeing more of her work, both within the fashion and the film industry.
