Check out a couple behind-the-scenes shots (and the final product) of the Louis Vuitton spring 2011 ad campaign—which was photographed in a New York studio by legendary lensman Steven Meisel.
"We started from the very beginning this season talking about glamour and something very stylized, very glossy," said Marc Jacobs, Vuitton's artistic director. "We arrived at something which I would compare to the Eiffel Tower lighting up every hour on the hour—something of artifice that is just so gorgeous, and glamorous, and beautiful, that you're completely mesmerized by it."
The campaign stars models Freja Beha Erichsen, Kristen McMenamy, and Raquel Zimmermann.
