Louis Vuitton Fetes New Roman Maison

ROME — Romans may be jaded about celebrity-spotting, given their proximity with Cinecittà stars. Still, curious onlookers pressed to catch a glimpse of the red carpet outside the city’s new Louis Vuitton Maison on Friday night.

To celebrate the opening of the sprawling boutique, designed by architect Peter Marino and located in Rome’s disused first movie theater, Cate Blanchett, Catherine Deneuve and her daughter Chiara Mastroianni braved the crowds.

Talk turned to the Academy Awards, less than a month away, but Blanchett won’t be attending the event, as she is busy touring Europe with Martin Crimp’s English adaptation of the German play ‘Gross und Klein’ [‘Big and Small’]. After bowing in Sydney last year, the production will travel to Paris, London and Vienna.

Blanchett explained she plays Lotte, who deals with her ‘invisible years, when her husband abandons her and she goes on a journey through Germany to find her useful self.’ The actress exchanged greetings with Deneuve, who just wrapped filming the new 3D Asterix and Obelix movie, shot in Hungary and Ireland, in which she plays Cordelia, the Queen of England. ‘So much fun,’ said Deneuve, of filming with co-star Gerard Depardieu, who plays the Gallic hero Obelix.

Speaking of Oscars, academy member Gustavo Santaolalla said he had cast a vote and was looking forward to the big night next month.  ‘I can’t tell you anything, though, as the vote is secret. It’s such a great celebration and I was blessed to win twice,’ said Santaolalla referring to the awards received for Best Original Score for ‘Brokeback Mountain’ and ‘Babel.’

The composer just wrapped scoring ‘On the Road,’ by Walter Salles, based on the Jack Kerouac novel, with a cast that includes Sam Riley, Kirsten Dunst, Kristen Stewart and Viggo Mortensen. ‘It was challenging because the film reflects the Beat generation, which was inspired by music — there was always music as a background,’ said Santaolalla , who has worked closely with Vuitton over the years and in 2008 composed the soundtrack for its TV spots.

Mastroianni, who narrates the Vuitton-sponsored ‘Handmade’ documentary on the artisans working at Cinecittà, praised ‘the exchange between fashion and the movie industry.’

‘Italy’s savoir faire is our oil,’ added Silvia Venturini Fendi of the value of handmade production and the preservation of the country’s craftsmanship.

Marking the relevance of the store opening for Rome, the city’s mayor, Gianni Alemanno, walked through the locale with chairman and ceo Yves Carcelle.

Other guests included LVMH executives including Antoine Arnault, Pietro Beccari, Francesco Trapani and Michael Burke, to industry figures including the five Fendi sisters and Delfina Delettrez Fendi; Natalia Vodianova; Margherita Missoni, and actress Margareth Madé, who appears in the 2012 Pirelli calendar by Mario Sorrenti.

Following the cocktail reception, Blanchett and Deneuve were among the 130 guests who gathered at the stunning 16th century Palazzo Ruspoli for a dinner under frescoed vaulted ceilings. ‘What an unexpected gem,’ said Blanchett of the venue.

The party Louis Vuitton held later that evening struck a decisively different note. Held at the city’s former Geological Institute, the venue served as the backdrop for a group of actors, who danced and sang iconic Italian cabaret songs, followed by a concert by Scottish artist Jimmy Somerville.”

“Louis Vuitton in Rome
The cocktail party for the store’s opening

The use of the former Etoile cinema in the heart of the Italian capital as a space to showcase the creations of the Louis Vuitton fashion house underlines the connection between fashion, cinema and the beauty of Rome.

This is a versatile space, one oriented towards elegance – it was officially opened on Friday evening in the presence of a host of famous guests.

There were Hollywood celebrities there like Cate Blanchett, as well as Catherine Deneuve and the supermodel Natalia Vodianova, who was accompanied by Antoine Arnault, the son of Bernard Arnault, the French luxury magnate who owns the LVMH Group.

Alongside them, there were many stars from the world of Italian fashion – such as Margherita Missoni and Silvia Venturini Fendi – and Italian cinema – Francesco Scianna, Margareth Madé, Laura Morante, Stefano Accorsi, Anita Caprioli, Adriano Giannini and Diane Fleri.

The evening was also attended by the mayor of Rome, Gianni Alemanno.

Natalia Vodianova en amoureuse pour une soirée Vuitton au côté de Cate Blanchett

De nombreuses stars internationales s’étaient donné rendez-vous à Rome, le 27 janvier 2012, pour une inauguration où raffinement et élégance à la française étaient les maîtres mots. En effet, la marque prestigieuse Louis Vuitton y a inauguré la “Maison Rome Étoile”.

Le mannequin Natalia Vodianova était présente pour découvrir cet espace de plus de 1000 m² où se trouvent une boutique Vuitton, mais aussi un cinéma, une bibliothèque et un espace réservé à l’art.

L’égérie Etam, qui avait profité du défilé de la marque de lingerie pour officialiser avec son amoureux Antoine Arnault, était de nouveau à son bras. Les amoureux ont posé timides devant les nombreux photographes.

A leur côté, l’actrice australienne Cate Blanchett était d’une rare élégance. L’excellente comédienne, que l’on retrouvera dans le très attendu Bilbo le Hobbit et dans plusieurs projets mystérieux de Terence Malick, avait opté pour une robe Louis Vuitton, parsemée d’or, absolument exquise.

Le beau comédien italien Stefano Accorsi était aussi présent, tout comme le maire de Rome et Patrick Louis-Vuitton.

“January 24, 2012
Disco Divas Headline Etam Show
By KATYAFOREMAN and JOELLEDIDERICH

DISCO INFERNO: Talk about girl power. Etam on Monday night assembled a formidable league of disco divas to provide the entertainment at its spring lingerie show, held at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Gloria Gaynor, Grace Jones, The Pointer Sisters, Sister Sledge and Chaka Khan took to the stage in succession to belt out classics as models sashayed by in looks from the collection. Designs went from feminine pink retro lingerie sets with high panties and garter belts, to gold bathing suits. Neon-dyed poodles accompanied girls in hot colored lingerie ensembles, while models in darker looks, such as a crystal studded black swimsuit, had snakes coiled around their shoulders.

Jones opened the show with ‘La Vie en Rose,’ albeit a little later than scheduled, having reportedly gone AWOL for some time backstage. ‘She did the same thing at a Louis Vuitton show in Tokyo five years ago: She disappeared and then reappeared. What counts is that she reappears,’ laughed Antoine Arnault, who listed Gloria Gaynor and The Jackson Five among his favorite disco acts as a kid. ‘It kind of stopped there, then I woke up [a few years later] to Coldplay and Radiohead,’ he said.

Alice Taglioni declared that Gaynor rocks. The French actress chatted about her experience meeting Woody Allen on the set of Sophie Lellouche’s ‘Paris Manhattan,’ in which the legendary director has a cameo role. ‘He was great, really simple and generous. He agreed to do this for the first film of a young French director — he’s a real supporter of young talent,’ Taglioni said, adding that Allen was in Paris for a few hours only for a jazz concert, but freed up an hour to shoot the scene at the Plaza hotel.

‘Grace Jones,’ yelled Annabelle Dexter-Jones, when asked about her disco heroes. The young hipster said she plans to present her capsule clothing line for Faith Connexion to buyers in New York in February, and is working on a short film that will be screened at the official launch of the line during Paris Fashion Week in March. ‘I took really classic pieces and put my own stamp on them and played with proportions a bit. I was really concerned with details and quality,’ she said.

French actress Cécile Cassel said she recently wrapped director Hugo Gélin’s feature ‘Comme des Frères,’ co-starring Mélanie Thierry and Nicolas Duvauchelle, but would not elaborate on her role. ‘Unfortunately I can’t tell you anything, because you discover it gradually,’ she explained. Cassel is also recording under a pseudonym — she performs under the stage name Holly Siz. ‘It’s my musical avatar,’ she said with a smile.

Arnault set off a flurry of flashbulbs by posing happily with his girlfriend, Etam ambassador Natalia Vodianova, whose spring-summer Natalia for Etam range was presented at the show. Though the two have been quietly dating for a few months, they had been careful not to be photographed together.

Led by Sister Sledge, the event culminated with a collective rendition of ‘We Are Family,’ with all of the night’s acts coming on stage to sing together.”

WOMEN’S FASHION |By EDWARD BARSAMIAN | JANUARY 24, 2012, 6:05 PM

The Look: Country Strong. An elegant topcoat and tall lace-up boots over white leggings — it’s a study in neutrals that verges on equestrian but leans most certainly toward sexy, too.

The Girl: The model Natalia Vodianova at the Berluti men’s show in Paris.

The Details: Dior coat, Céline top, Givenchy trousers, Marc Jacobs boots.”
