Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2012 Backstage

Sumptuous and pretty.  Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2012 collection perfectly captures the soft, romantic look of the season.  Designer Marc Jacobs is so inspiring and he knows how to create the "wow" factor by staging shows that are full of fantasy and great fashion.

The models a the Louis Vuitton show looked like fairy tale princesses as they sat on the white carrousel in their embellished sorbet colored dresses.  The show was beautiful and just out of this world.  It's Mark Jacobs love of beauty and fashion that really comes through at every Vuitton collection he creates.

As Marc explained to me backstage after the show, "I love fashion so much, we don't do this because we have to - we do this out of love - it's not for a paycheck - it's done from a place of passion.  Nobody needs fashion - it's a luxury.  Nobody needs fashion, they want fashion - it sort of pulls at your heart when it works".

Giambattista Valli Spring|Summer 2012 Backstage

Top models Ginta Lapina and Jac take us backstage at Giambattista Valli Spring Summer 2012 fashion show in Paris. "I love the reality of women" Valli explained to me after the show - "it's all about natural beauty".

Giambattista Valli's Spring Summer 2012 Collection was inspired by a mix of memories, cultures and an idea about a nomadic woman. "This woman is a traveller" explained Orlando Pita backstage, "there is a beach texture in the back, but we slicked it down on the front with gel, because the hair had to also look like she was coming out of the water".

The makeup look Val Garland created was a healthy, athletic, androgynous girl. It's all about a brushed up groomed eyebrow, a reflective color on the lid and lip balm on the lips". As Giambattista explained, "if you feel beautiful, you don't even need a hair do, that is the feeling".
