Window Loving: Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama Take Over Selfridges

I love it when fashion and art collides, more so when the takeover is so intense, and you can’t get any more all-consuming than Louis Vuitton and Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama bringing their monograms and dotty approach to life across 24 windows at Selfridges.

I knew it was coming but I still wasn’t prepared for the wow factor of seeing Louis Vuitton’s highly anticipated exclusive Kusama collection takeover Selfridges’ large windows on Oxford Street. If you haven’t been by to see, do, it is stunning, and take it from me walk from the Orchard Street end of Selfridges as you will be able to follow Kusama’s ‘Love Forever’ poem, which has inspired the display, in both English and Japanese.

If you aren’t familiar with the poem here it is, as well as a few snaps I took on my HTC One X of the windows – I truly wished I lived in a permanent polka dot world!!!

Stars, the earth, I and you: we are but one polka dot

To a shining future

Budding love

All about my great happiness

Fashionably dressed up

Let’s go and see out boyfriends in high heels

I, in high heels

Love Forever

Also don’t forget to go inside as for eight weeks Selfridge’s Concept Store is full of polka dots as the Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama collection full of accessories that Minnie Mouse would love to buy are exclusive to Selfridges!!!

Yayoi Kusama Whitney Opening: Diane Kruger & Joshua Jackson In Louis Vuitton

Who: Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger

Where: At the opening of Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition at the Whitney Museum in New York City hosted by Louis Vuitton and W Magazine

Wearing: Diane went for a pajama-inspired look with a full runway to red carpet look from Louis Vuitton’s Resort 2013 collection, working a lilac floor-length dress under a navy-trimmed, brown belted jacket, and finishing off her look with gold accessories.

Looking just as chic was Joshua in a dapper tri-tone two-button Louis Vuitton suit from the autumn/winter 2012 collection.

Verdict: Wow, they really are going for the hottest couple in Hollywood award, forget Angie and Brad – for me Joshua and Diane are perfection together on the red carpet.

I adore Diane’s unconventional look, the addition of the jacket is a little different – but I have to be honest I would love to see that floor-length gown in all its glory. For me, this look is all about the finishing touches – the flawless make-up, the gorgeous hair, the adorable gold chain strap minaudière, and of course the best accessory the hunky coordinated man on her arm.

I love Joshua’s suit with its contrasting shades – the charcoal works perfectly with the navy lapels and I am loving his rugged look with the stubble – HOT!!!

Is there any couple in Hollywood that could compete with Diane and Joshua?
