Louis Vuitton prostitute film

Oh, fashion, you are so provocative!

For Louis Vuitton‘s latest short film (in collaboration with Love), James Lima shot a bunch of top models as Parisian prostitutes, ambling around (sexily) to a mournful piano score by Steve Mackey. Eventually, we see runway footage of the Fall 13 collection–including Kate Moss in that sheer dress–and we wonder, are we to recontextualize the somber, romantic clothes? Are all models kinds of prostitutes? What does it all mean?

It’s hard to identify every one of them–it’s so moody and dark!–but looks like we have Cara Delevingne, Saskia de Brauw, the ever-naked Magdalena Frackowiak, Isabeli Fontana, Georgia May Jagger and Lily Mcmenamy. At least.

Though it’s impossible to buy Delevingne acting remotely serious, if you have the kind of freewheeling office environment that doesn’t mind a bare breast or two (and Frockowiak slinking about in nothing but a fur coat), here you go:
