Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors

In typical bad girl style, Kate Moss strutted down the runway for Louis Vuitton in hot pants accessorised with...a cigarette.
Seven years after 'retiring' from Catwalk shows, she walked for Vuitton at Paris Fashion Week, proving that she still has the edge.

She's never far away from controversy, and today she lived up to her rep by lighting up on the Catwalk on the official No Smoking day.

The fetish-themed show also featured hostesses in French-maid outfits serving vodka shots (at 10am!) and handcuffs featured prominently throughout the whole show.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Marc Jacobs said it was the public's desperate desire for products with the LV logo that initiated the idea of fetishism:
"'There's this crazy, almost irrational desire for these objects, these things we create. 'We were thinking about obsession, fetishism and we thought about an old hotel, with its chambermaids and the affairs that go on there, the crimes and scandals."

This idea was brought to life as model's entered the runway from a lift, specially created for the show, escorted by porters.

As expected with a fetish-themed show, the clothes featured lots of leather, bustiers and thigh high stockings. Updating the classic 40's shape, perfect hourglass figures were created with the restrictive but beautiful pieces. Models were cinched in at the waist, proving that the obsession for a Mad Men-esque silhouette isn't over yet. In contrast, the boxy hats and leather gloves added a masculine edge, giving some outfits a sense of androgyny.

Completely over the top and extravagant, this is a far cry from the market-stall imitiations of LV logo bags. All that was missing were a few whips and chains.
There's always next year I suppose...
