As guest of Louis Vuitton, I was transported on a magical journey with the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express from Paris to Vienna. This palace on wheels is an outstanding experience that I cannot wait to fully share with you. Lets’ get started with my outfit and the first impressions when my voyage began on the platform of the famed Gare de L’Est in Paris. There the historic carriages awaited my arrival from Palais Royale, before stepping aboard a world of timeless glamour.

My look: Wool coat with blue shearling embellishments (Pre-fall 2011), oversized zip side-tie dress (Runway S/S 2023), black stretch body with zipper (2021), grey felt hat with fur embellishment (Runway F/W 2012), velvet lace-up cancan boots with patent leather ruffle detail (Runway F/W 2009), custom-made Sac Louis (2010), Pochette Métis in Monogram leatheryellow gold and diamond nameplate necklace (2007), and vintage Pégase trolley, all by Louis Vuitton.

Everything reminded me so much of Louis Vuitton’s beautiful F/W 2012 show when Marc Jacobs had a train on the runway and everything was inspired by this vintage ’20s glamour. For the previous post, click here.
