Elle Macpherson, Laetitia Casta, Bar Refaeli, Karolina Kurkova and Lara Stone strutted down the catwalk at the Louis Vuitton F/W 2010 Ready-to-Wear show, proving that the fashion industry is starting to wholeheartedly accept and embrace curvier women.
Forty-six-year-old Macpherson, who earnt the name ‘The Body’ back in the ‘80s, wore a rusty pink gown, cinched in at the waist, with a bodice that left little to the imagination. Overall, the collection took the emphasis away from the legs (by incorporating mid-calf-skimming skirts) and placed it on the décolleté. Style.com’s Sarah Mower described the collection as “another angle on the Mad Men era but this time with a charming Frenchified accent.”
The man behind Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, is not the first designer this fashion season to embrace womanliness. Miuccia Prada featured relatively voluptuous Victoria’s Secret models Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr and Doutzen Kroes in her Prada show in Milan.
