Michelle Williams and Alicia Vikander Star in Louis Vuitton’s Picturesque New Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Nicolas Ghesquière may be receiving rave reviews for his RTW collections at Louis Vuitton, but his campaigns for the iconic French fashion house have been rather mundane. Louis Vuitton’s twice-yearly The Spirit of Travel campaign dropped earlier this week and features Alicia Vikander and Michelle Williams this time around. The actresses took to various picturesque locations for the occasion, captured by legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier. Complete with styling from Marie-Amélie Sauvé, the duo complement Ghesquière’s vision perfectly as they each pose individually, making us want to go traveling — lugging Louis Vuitton luggage, of course.

Our forum members shared mixed feelings toward the campaign, however. “I’m surprised how good Michelle looks, so youthful and fresh,” admired Nymphaea with Nomar adding, “This is great.”

“I think they both look great, especially Michelle, but I cannot help thinking models would’ve been better for this. This is Alicia’s second campaign and I’ve still not warmed to the idea of her as a LV ambassador,” shared Benn98.

Also not completely feeling it was gossiping: “Alicia doesn’t represent LV. She looks like a million other girls out there. Michelle stands out but I think that if Rianne [van Rompaey] and Freja [Beha Erichsen] and the rest of the Vuitton girls were here, it would be better.”

Forum member narcyza was underwhelmed too, writing, “Well, we all saw something like this a million times in Vuitton campaigns.”

“Alicia really does not make sense as a Ghesquière girl. She’s pretty but in a very sweet way, nothing particularly edgy or modern about her. She would have been perfect for Alessandro Michele’s Gucci, IMO,” said Steddycam91.

“Tired of seeing Michelle constantly for LV,” ranted VersaceVixen009.
