Madonna Shines in Louis Vuitton at Gucci Party ... Gasp!

2008 must’ve been one hell of a year for a diva named Madonna. First was the release of her final studio album for Warner Music called Hard Candy (a greatest hits album to be released by the end of this year), next is her successful Sticky and Sweet world tour that grossed more than US$100 million, and concluding it all is the rotten cherry on top – a quickie divorce from her British film director husband Guy Ritchie.

And more recently, Madame Madge showed up at Gucci/UNICEF gala to celebrate the launch its Gucci Tattoo Heart holiday collection in New York. While the star of the event happened to be rising R&B star Rihanna, who is also the spokesperson and the face of the collection’s ad campaign, it seems Madonna too made everybody’s eyebrows raised to greater extent.

Believe it or n
ot, her Madge-sty made her grand entrée into the event at Gucci’s World Flagship store (5th Avenue) wearing not Gucci but guess what, Louis Vuitton! I know it may sound ridiculous or suicidal but honey, I’ve seen it all and Madonna is not the first to commit such fashion ‘crime’. In KL, socialites too commit the same crime. Some did turn up at Salvatore Ferragamo event clutching a Prada clutch or wear a Paul Smith dress while seating next to the brand’s regional MD on front row. Gasp! But since the venue was jam-packed, who would give a damn anyway?

Now back to Madonna. Sporting Lauren Bacall-esque hairstyle (remember her Bazaar cover where she dressed as a nurse?), she looked stunning in a belted green fringed shift dress and a matching strappy stiletto sandals freshly culled from Louis Vuitton’s spring/summer 2009 collection. Yes my dear fashionistas, fresh from the recent Paris Fashion Week runway.

The belted shift dress sports a above-thigh fringed hem in contrasting hue of black and spiced up with stacks of chunky African tribal bangles in amber and resin with one being smartly bejewelled, plus a sexy pair of classic fishnet stockings. Don't forget the gilded leather obi-styled belt too, which is slated to become the next season's 'in' accessory.

And for those who are yet to know, Marc Jacobs has successfully roped the diva as the upcoming face of Louis Vuitton’s spring/summer 2009 advertising campaign. Shot by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott in Los Angeles, the campaign is set to draw Madonna fans stampeding into Louis Vuitton stores around the world, despite of the gloomy economic situation that has literally affected the Stateside and Japan quite recently. So, is there any chance Madge will appear in one of the ad campaigns wearing that green fringed piece? Just wait and see.

However, before I conclude the news, I have good news for filthy rich fashionistas who are truly devoted to Louis Vuitton trunks. Now, you don’t have to put your bottle of dainty Beluga caviar into the loaded picnic basket because Louis Vuitton has created a stylish solution for you – the Caviar trunk.

Created solely for caviar-keeping purpose, the trunk is only available via special order complete with bowl, glasses, plates and even spoons! The trunk interior is lined with plush red-hued leather while the classic monogram richly swathed its exterior surface. The Caviar Trunk is also available in Taiga leather as well.

If you fancy getting one for your picnic convenience or just as a bait to lure Madonna or Posh Spice to join your picnic in the park, inquire with your nearest Louis Vuitton stores today.
