Longtime Louis Vuitton devotees Michelle Williams and Alicia Vikander, and brand new sacrificial lamb Emma Stone, all donned surprisingly decent gowns from the house lately known for a wildly erratic use of sleeves. As a bonus, Michelle and Emma both brought feminist activists with them to the red carpet – Michelle with Tarana Burke, the founder of the #MeToo movement, and Emma with Billie Jean King, the tennis superstar she portrays in “Battle of the Sexes”.

She looks fine in this, and it’s certainly the least weirdly sleeved garment they’ve put together lately. She usually fares better than most faces of Vuitton, but this time I like hers the least.

You could forgive me for mistaking this for Valentino at first – with the high neckline, long sleeves, and the vintage beading. That’s probably why I like it more than anything LV has made in the last few years.

This is only her 3rd outing since becoming the latest face for Louis Vuitton, the first in a cute sequined mini dress, and the second in one of their monstrously sleeved concoctions. This is a perfectly serviceable lace dress for a nominee who knew she wasn’t going to win. It’s going to be interesting to see how their partnership develops.
