Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson sparked a photographer frenzy at the Louis Vuitton show on Sunday, as designer Marc Jacobs took Paris fashion week to its final phase with shimmering, slim outfits.
Jacobs said his collection was a homage to Johannes Vermeer, calling the line “Girl with a monogrammed bag”, a play on words on Vermeer’s painting and the 2003 film Girl with a Pearl Earring on the Dutch painter, in which Johansson played a main character.
“I thought it was amazing,” the actress told reporters after the show in a giant tent in a courtyard of the Louvre museum.
“I thought it was beautiful. And I was really happy to see how wearable everything is,” she said, after Jacobs paraded out models in short leather jackets with asymmetric zips. Other girls wore A-line coats and dresses in all shades of blue.
“The colour palette was informed by paintings from Vermeer,” Jacobs said after the show. “What we set out to do was to .. keep a sense of romanticism and a sense of colour but to give them a force and a strength and to keep them modern.”
