Checking in? Marc Jacobs turned his Louis Vuitton runway show into a dark and opulent hotel lobby — complete with gilded escalators and French maids — during Paris Fashion week on Wednesday. And he even got some V.I.P. guests to check in: strutting down the black lacquer catwalk were Naomi Campbell, Amber Valetta and Carolyn Murphy, plus Kate Moss, who closed the show in a black rubberized lace jacket and tiny shorts, cigarette in hand. Backstage, Jacobs explained the concept behind Hotel Vuitton. “We thought of every aspect of this hotel fantasy, people getting out of elevators with attendants, French maids dusting and serving the guests,” he told reporters. “I just thought it was a weird, nice but melancholy end to Paris Fashion Week.” As for the show’s decadent and slightly naughty theme — some models were handcuffed to their handbags — Jacobs said, “We all have our fetish, it’s something that comes from the heart that creates an obsession for something, it’s instinctive. Whether it’s a bag or a shoe, a piece of music or an automobile.” Guests — who included Emma Stone and Alex Pettyfer — seemed to dig that slightly kinky vibe, though. “It was very sexy,” model Natalia Vodianova told PEOPLE. “Although it was so much to take in this early in the morning!” —Monique Jessen
