A-list ladies help Salvatore Ferragamo make fashion history in the Louvre

by hellofashion.com /

For the first time in its 900-year history, the Louvre has opened its doors to fashion.

Italian luxury goods brand Salvatore Ferragamo staged the first ever catwalk show to be held inside the world-renowned museum on Tuesday.

A starry crowd gathered in Paris for the unique event, led by Indian starlet Freida Printo, Gossip Girl beauty Leighton Meester and Oscar-winner Hilary Swank.



The three A-list ladies were seated together in the front row, and Hilary was spotted larking around as she took pictures.

The Italian fashion house was given unprecedented access to the Denon Wing in return for sponsorship of the Louvre’s current exhibition featuring The Virgin and Saint Anne, the last painting by Leonardo da Vinci. 


Salvatore Ferragamo's latest confections, with their soft, muted tones, blended in perfectly with the museum's historic stone walls.

And their feminine fringing, intricate crochet and lace-up-the-leg trousers signalled a venture into American Indian territory.

“I loved the colours,” Freida said after the show, revealing that she had her eye on a backless, evening dress that was split at the front.
