The actress debuts with the brand by starring in their high jewellery campaign
July 28, 2022: Announcing one more extremely popular actor as its house ambassador, Louis Vuitton can now call actress Cate Blanchett as one of its own.
To begin the partnership, the versatile actress is captured by photographer Sølve Sundsbø in an expressive series of portraits for Louis Vuitton’s latest High Jewellery collection, Spirit. Styled in monochromatic looks, both the actress and jewellery beguile in the campaign.
Through five pared-back shots, the 53-year old Ms. Blanchett effortlessly embodies the collection’s themes - Liberty, Fantasy, Grace, Radiance and Destiny; themes chosen by Artistic Director of Watches and Jewellery, Francesca Amfitheatrof, for highlighting values dear to Louis Vuitton.
“I am extremely excited to have this opportunity to collaborate with Louis Vuitton – a truly iconic House with an enormous cultural reach. To wear the magnificent pieces created by Francesca Amfitheatrof is a bedazzling pleasure, and Nicolas Ghesquiere, as ever, amazes and inspires me.”
Strong, elegant and one of the finest actors of her generation, Ms. Blanchett certainly brings a class to Louis Vuitton. She is truly one of the few actors who is as flawless in comic as in villainous roles.
The house most recently also announced Indian actress Deepika Padukone as one of its House Ambassadors.
