The 2017 Louis Vuitton Cruise show just took place in beautiful, sunny Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The celebrity-studded show was held at the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum (also known as the MAC de Niterói) which was just as stunning as the clothes. Nestled between the Guanabara Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, the futuristic building provided breathtaking views from all sides. See all the big moments and Nicolas Ghesquière’s latest work below.

1. The show was Grand Prix-themed

The brand posted these race-car-like graphics on Instagram the day before the show with the caption “The races begin!”

3. We saw some familiar faces on the runway

LV regulars like Mica Arganaraz, Lineisy Montero, Fernanda Ly, and Natalie Westling all walked.

4. This was the first time a fashion show was held at the MAC de Niterói

According to WGSN, it’s the first time the museum has hosted a fashion show since it was built in 1910, but not opened until 1996. This year marks its 20th opening anniversary.

5. The winding walkway made for a stunning catwalk

The guest seats at the end of the path were set up in a pattern mimicking the walkway which also took advantage of the circular, water-lined path at the base of the building.


6. But the real show-stoppers were the bags…

Especially the boombox trunks!
