Thats about as luxe and high-end as one can go when it comes to accessories and apparel brands, so to say that she went big her first time out would be a vast understatement. In the ads for the Fall/Winter 2013 season, Williams hawks two new monogrammed bags: the W and the Capucines. The images see her signature blonde pixie spilling across her forehead while her scarlet lips scream old Hollywood glam. Understated but dramatic. (And to think she was a mousy little thing on Dawsons Creek while Katie Holmes got all the attention.) Williams ads, seen below, will first appear in September issues of fashion mags the biggest and most fabulous of the editorial calendar year. Michelle Williams was selected by Louis Vuitton for her independent spirit with which she has forged her path through Hollywood, defined by her outstanding talent, her passion for her craft, and her choice of daring and challenging roles, the brand gushed about its new spokesmodel in a statement. Shes wearing a Marc Jacobs coat in the first ad here, and thats the W bag in both shots.

Though she has a sweet-as-a-button appeal, corsets , metallics and playful hems are all part of her style rotation. Fortunately, it looks like that fearlessness has paid off with a new gig as the face of Louis Vuitton . The actress stars in the fashion house’s autumn/winter 2013-14 campaign, which focuses on two new handbags, the W and the Capucines. Sporting wine-colored lips, dark brows and her signature cropped haircut, Williams looks particularly edgy in the Peter Lindbergh-lensed shots wearing clothing from the fall collection. It’s certainly a far cry from the young girl we met on “Dawson’s Creek.” Of course, this announcement isn’t too surprising — remember how great Williams looked in her show-stopping Louis Vuitton gown at the 2012 Oscars? This partnership is also particularly noteworthy, since it marks the star’s very first major fashion campaign. (Williams did star in the Band of Outsiders lookbook back in 2012, though.) You can catch her new Louis Vuitton ads in Marie Claire France on Aug. 2 or wait until they hit September and October fashion magazines Stateside. Do you think these shots prove that Williams has global style star potential?

Louis Vuitton tops 2013 global luxury brand list
In a somewhat aggressive move, LVMH has revealed its financial share in Hermes has grown from 22.6% to 23.1%, despite being issued a 8 million fine earlier this month . Now, that doesn’t sound like much of climb in everyday numbers, but in the world of stocks and shares? When you’ve already been warned off by official regulating bodies? It’s on a par with flipping the bird. Sparking rumours that family-run Hermes might be in more financial trouble than they’d care to articulate, there’s talk that new shares in the company are being leaked by those at the top, to help to keep the books afloat. Yikes.
HOW TO: Spot a fake Louis Vuitton handbag
The 2013 BrandZ Top 100, a ranking of the most valuable global brands compiled by research firm MillwardBrown, found luxury firms struggling with the need to balance exclusivity with attracting new customers through use of social media. “On Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and other social media platforms, brands across the luxury spectrum mediated the tension between the exclusivity that protects brand desirability and the inclusivity needed to attract new customers,” it said. The survey said luxury brands had become more “accessible, collaborative and experimental”. After a modest purchase, for example, a firm might send a thank you note on twitter while a couture fashion customer might receive an invitation to an exclusive show. Handbag firm Coach owed its position at number 10 on the list to its presence in China where it added 30 stores by Louis Vuitton the end of 2012, taking its total there to 69. The survey said it was among the firms making extensive use of social media and the Internet, “emailing over 1.2 billion messages to selected customers”. And it found that the Chinese customer continued to be key to the fortunes of luxury firms in Europe. Although, the sector felt the impact of government limits on official gift giving and slowing economic growth in China, purchases by Chinese and other Asian tourists to Europe “buoyed luxury sales in the economically troubled markets of western Europe”, it said. Overall in the past year, the value of the luxury sector had risen six percent, compared with a 15 percent increase a year ago, it added. The top ten brands were: Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Gucci, Prada, Rolex, Chanel, Cartier, Burberry, Fendi and Coach.

So we’ve rounded up a few tips from our friends over at thevivant.com on how to check if your new LV purchase is in fact the real deal. Ready for a lesson in Vuitton perfection? Here we go… TIP 1: Always remember that the O’s in Louis Vuitton should have a perfectly round shape many counterfeits use oval shaped O’s instead. TIP 2: Check that the Louis Vuitton bag you are considering buying actually exists. Sounds obvious, but there have been examples of the Vernis being sold in black even though Louis Vuitton never made it in black. TIP 3: Louis Vuitton is extremely careful about the way that its monogram is placed, and it is usually completely symmetrical from side to side. TIP 4: Not all Louis Vuitton bags are made in France, so if your bag says ‘Made in USA’ don’t automatically assume it’s a fake. TIP 5: Some styles such as the Speedy have upside down LVs on the back-side of the bag the reason being that Louis Vuitton will use one continuous piece of leather that will wrap from the back to the front so one side will have an upside down logo.
