Much like certain runway looks, there are some things that only the elitest of fashion's elite can pull off. Case in point: Lanvin's latest campaign video. Creative Director Alber Elbaz has Skyped himself into the set of the campaign shoot to deliver an adorable running commentary on the proceedings.

Included among the running string of French-accented compliments:
· "Oh wow! Oh my God it's beautiful!
· "[Gasp] It's divine!"
· "I like. I like a lot."
· "The perspective is just... sick."
· "Love, love, love."
· "J'adore!"
· "Very, very poetic."
· "It's very chic."
· "It's California at it's best, you know?"
· "Looking really good."
· "I feel I'm in a dream."
· "I feel I am in a cloud."
Á "Parfait."
