La Belle Lou + Vanessa Bruno Summer 2010 = Fashion Masterpiece

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on June 23, 2010

Lou Doillon and French fashion label Vanessa Bruno did it again and pushed the video lookbook/ music video trend even further. What could be expected to be another one-dimensional video of a muse starring in many beautiful clothes has become more than just a filmed fashion inspiration. Doillon, daughter of famous Jane Birkin and French it girl, is not what I would define as a classic beauty therefore the hype around her person hasn’t opened up to me until I saw this video. The camera follows Doillon as she constitutes the feelings that overwhelm her with each new outfit. She is rich in emotions, lives them to their fullest and shows the many facets of her acting talent. The many faces and her ability to dance wildly, be silly, laugh at herself or reflect on beauty with tears is what made me understand why Lou Doillon is so beautiful – she as a person is pure magic and I could not NOT fall in love with her while I pushed the repeat button over and over again. The interplay of Gonzales’ music and his role as the piano player made me almost forget that this is not a beautiful French court métrage or a very scenic music video but a lookbook for summer 2010.

This outstanding performance of a concept fashion video will stand out for a while and serve as the yardstick of lookbooks to come for all of the above and one more simple reason: it moved my emotions and made me dance barefoot all over my apartment.
