Although no official announcement has been made, the Swedish actress, Alicia Vikander 26, confirmed that she would be the new face of Louis Vuitton at the brand’s Resort show in Palm Springs. The Ex Machina film star will be following in the footsteps of Angelina Jolie, Michelle Williams and Jennifer Connelly.
Vikander’s appointment as an official LV muse shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to those who have been tracking the actress’s red-carpet turns lately and it is also a really good choice. Aside from sitting front-row at the past two Vuitton shows, she wore a design by Ghesquière to the Met Gala earlier this month and to most of her public appearances this year. Vikander has been said to be ‘the next big thing in fashion’.
Fitting in her Vuitton commitments will be a challenge for Vikander, as she is starring in and promoting eight films in 2015. But the actress seems up for the task. At least she’ll have Nicolas Ghesquière’s new desert boots to carry her along the way.
