Baby’s Got Back…pack


May 1, 2015

Everyone’s talking about Pat McGrath‘s jaw-dropping makeup for the Louis Vuitton show. We’re amazed by her artistry (always!), but we’re kind of obsessed with something else: the backpack model Valerie Kaufman toted down the runway.

Covered in tiny LVs, the accessory was a late ’90s throwback, referencing the days when Madonna and Janet Jackson covered themselves in Vuitton everything.
