“There’s a lot of baggage that comes with us, but it’s like Louis Vuitton baggage; you always want it.” Kim Kardashian always did have a way with words. With the budget to empty Louis Vuitton in one go, this Kardashian is one of the brand’s most loyal customers.
Louis Vuitton is the luxury French luggage brand that’s basically the biggest status symbol there is. Now dominating as a fashion label, LV nevertheless remains known for its bags. Women will forego food and rent to save up for the biggest prize a fashionista can have– it’s called your very own Louis Vuitton bag.
Gossip Girl. Sex and the City. Friends (remember when Rachel got a job at Louis Vuitton)? While TV has shown us this brand’s status, it’s the real-life celebs who are doing the best job. Kylie Jenner, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga are all giant fans. Then men are right up there with them. Drake, Justin Bieber, and DJ Khaled all adore Louis Vuitton.
There is such thing as a little “too much” LV, though. It’s called being a walking billboard for the brand (and having the monogram cover you entirely). While loving the brand isn’t a bad thing, overdoing the logo when you’ve got the cash is something we’re about to see.
Endless celebs have fronted Louis Vuitton. Selena Gomez, Angelina Jolie, and Emma Stone have all been the brand’s face. While Selena is more about the Coach now, this girl still loves her LV. It’s time for a closer look. In particular, at the celebs whose adoration for this brand might just put them into the “overdone” it category. Here are 15 celebs whose love for Louis Vuitton may just have gone a little too far.
Kim Kardashian’s Louis Vuitton Trash Cans
Kim Kardashian recently gifted all the girls in her family $9,000 worth of Louis Vuitton, Fox News reports. Ironically, this may well be the least Kim has ever spent at Louis Vuitton. In 2018, Kim basically broke the internet by posing next to what appeared to be Louis Vuitton-monogrammed trash cans.
“There’s a lot of baggage that comes with us, but it’s like Louis Vuitton baggage; you always want it.”
As This Is Insider quotes Kim saying, this girl’s love for the brand runs deep. Twitter didn’t respond too well to Kim’s post, though. “Twitter loses it to Kim Kardashian’s Louis Vuitton trash cans,” High Snobriety reported.” Kim Kardashian’s trash cans cost more than me,” one fan Tweeted. A bit much, be we love her anyway.
All The Times DJ Khaled Got Carried Away
DJ Khaled doesn’t do things by half. The producer has a larger-than-life personality, a tight-knit circle of A-List friends, and clearly, he loves his designer brands. Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with Supreme basically got all the celebs hooked. Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Khaled have all been spotted in the red or blue goods.
“Dinero.” A word that Khaled repeats after Jennifer Lopez alongside Cardi B in his lyrics. This guy may overdo the Louis Vuitton, but he knows the value of quality goods. This picture of Khaled in Louis Vuitton Supreme feels ever-so-slightly comical, but we’ve got to say, we just want the merch.
Khaled’s Instagram seems to suggest a pretty luxurious lifestyle. He flies by private jet, his sneaker collection is staggering, and yes, there’s plenty of Louis Vuitton.
All The Times Kylie Jenner Couldn’t Go Without
You’re looking at the world’s youngest billionaire. The 2019 news that Kylie Jenner is now worth $1 billion more than made Forbes‘ headlines recently. In 2018 though, Kylie was making headlines for a purse closet that Harper’s Bazaar reports being worth $1 million. It’s packed with Louis Vuitton.
“This is pretty much where I keep all my purses. I made a little room in my house and I did this all custom so they all could have a little home and be lit up really pretty.”
In her Snapchat tour, Kylie showed entire rows of Louis Vuitton bags. This swimwear shot dates back to before Stormi was born. With the bandana and fully-monogrammed LV, this look is on our list for being just a touch overdone. It’s insanely stylish, but you can’t say it isn’t in-your-face. Kylie also used Louis Vuitton for her Kylie Cosmetics promo.
Rita Ora: It’s Kind Of A Thing
In 2018, Rita Ora was spotted wandering the streets of Verona, Italy. Brightly-dyed hair will usually make a headline– we see it from the Kardashians all the time. All eyes were on Rita’s outfit, though. With a Louis Vuitton-monogrammed denim skirt and jacket, we’ve got to say, this is probably the trendiest “overdone” LV look we’ve seen.
“I got really into all those ripped-up Margiela looks from back in the day, and having a lot of references from pop stars, like the Madonnas, and then punk when I realized I couldn’t afford high-end clothes.”
Speaking to Vogue, Rita recalled “not being able to afford” luxury goods. Times have changed. Rita is one of the highest-earning music stars around. Clearly, she’s got a favorite place to spend it all.
Ariana Grande: Cat Ears To Match Her Skirt
Ariana Grande is basically the biggest music star around right now. “Ariana run pop” was a prediction that Nicki Minaj made with her lyrics some years back. Rolling Stone recently quoted that. In 2018, Ariana was still dating Pete Davidson. Doesn’t look like the relationship stopped her wearing Louis Vuitton, though. Yup, monogrammed cat ears to match her skirt.
Ariana Grande gives interviews in Louis Vuitton clothes. “Lashes and diamonds, ATM machines, these are a few of my favorite things.” Yo, Ari. You forgot to mention Louis Vuitton!
With no cat ears visible on the Louis Vuitton website, it is highly likely that this outfit was custom-made. Ariana looked as cute as she always does. Still, with a leather skirt already screaming: “Louis Vuitton!” you can’t say that the look isn’t a touch overdone.
Cardi B: Literally, “Money Bag”
Cardi B is straight-up awesome. Pulling herself out of poverty with bravery and talent, this rapper has a little something different (and you can’t put your finger on it). “I could buy designer but this Fashion Nova fit” might be the lyrics that seem conveniently well-placed for Cardi’s collaboration with the affordable clothing line, but this girl goes high-end.
“Balenciaga mama.” That’s one line. “And I park my Bentley truck in my Versace driveway.” That’s another. Cardi loves her designer brands from Gucci to Fendi. One brand, in particular, was getting a lot of love her, though.
Admit it– that’s a lot of Louis Vuitton. The thing about Cardi B though, is that she goes all out. When the lashes and hair are unicorn-colored, the outfit will be, too. Cardi’s style is now envied by women around the globe, but this look might be one to look at (rather than re-create).
Stormi Webster: Genuinely Interested
Stormi Webster now has a billionaire for a mommy. This little girl turned one recently, and her first birthday bash saw DJ Khaled gift her a Chanel purse. This is about the Louis Vuitton, though. When Kim gifted $9,000 worth of LV to the girls in her family, little Stormi got one (and it was posted to Instagram).
“Omg this girl threw the bag over her shoulder I can’t.” When Kylie Jenner posted a video of Stormi reaching out for a Louis Vuitton bag, we literally saw Stormi throw the bag over her shoulder. #TotalFashionista
It isn’t overdone, but it is awesome enough to land on this list. Stormi is probably the most famous baby on the planet right now. She’s covered in designer clothes (mostly custom-made), but this Louis Vuitton moment didn’t get past us.
Paris Hilton: Dedication That’s Unreal
In 2010, Upscale Hype wrote an entire article on Paris Hilton’s obsession with Louis Vuitton. This socialite basically became “famous for being famous” in the 2000s, and it came with a lot of LV. For Paris, flashing the cash was always her style. This pic of Paris posing with a ton of LV luggage has basically become iconic.
Louis Vuitton bags can retail for a minimum price of $3,000. The trunks and luggage can easily hit the $50,000 mark, and that’s without the customizations. For a girl who rides around in pink Bentleys though, the bags are just accessories.
“That’s hot.” It’s Paris’ signature phrase. With the budget to empty Louis Vuitton (and the willpower), this girl is on our list for obvious reasons. We’ll always be hooked on Paris Hilton, but you can’t say her Louis Vuitton is minimalist.
Madonna: Slouchy But Pricey
Madonna might be over 60, but she keeps up with the 20-somethings. With a style that’s reinvented itself countless times over the years, this pop icon has rocked grunge, country, glam, and everything in between. Madonna is an adoptive mother. She was at the airport here with her kids, but the Louis Vuitton was there.
“In 1979, you left Michigan for New York with just $35 in your pocket,” Vogue reminded Madonna as the magazine interviewed her. Covered in LV she may be, but Madonna grew up on hard times.
Louis Vuitton X Supreme was the look here. This fashion range has been worn by Justin Bieber and Scott Disick, although Madonna’s look is, admittedly, a little more scruffy. We’re not entirely sure that it fits with the slouchy style, but then again, athleisurewear is in!
Lady Gaga: $28,000 Of LV In One Look
It’s rarely low-key with Lady Gaga. While A Star Is Born has shown us less of this singer’s oversized wigs and statement dresses, Gaga always has something up her sleeve. For this Instagram post, it seemed to be: “Hey, today I’ll be showing you how Louis Vuitton is done in style.” Admittedly, it’s a lot, but she nailed it.
Lady Gaga has described her hair as “Louis Vuitton brown.” You’re looking at: The Supreme x Louis Vuitton $700 hoodie, the $6,975 Bandoulière Duffle Bag, plus the $20,495 PM Bag in Epi Red. #HeyBigSpender
Yes, it’s a pretty eye-watering price tag. Racking up to over $28,000, this Louis Vuitton look might be goals, but there’s no denying why it’s on this list. Lady Gaga is frequently spotted rocking a Louis Vuitton bag, but this pic remains Gaga doing the #Extra at her best.
Cruz Beckham: A True Gentleman
“Fashion stole my smile.” After endless comments regarding her poker face, Victoria Beckham actually wore a statement tee saying this. The fashionista has told The Times: “I smile and laugh a lot.” We just don’t see it much. Ultra-stylish and with her own fashion empire, Victoria also comes with four celeb kids.
Cruz is one of Victoria and David Beckham’s sons. He’s also clearly a total gent. Helping his mom here (and definitely showcasing the Louis Vuitton), Cruz carried what appeared to be the same brand as the guy in the background.
The cap. All the bags. It is a bit much. Still, when your mother’s fashion empire has earned her $450 million, as per Forbes, you can afford to splash out. Victoria herself is often spotted with a Louis Vuitton bag.
When You’re Front Row At Louis Vuitton, #HeadToToe
The Kardashian-Jenners now come with a front-row invite to just about everything. In 2018, Kim bravely returned to Paris after her 2016 robbery left her scarred and shaken. The occasion? The Louis Vuitton Fashion Show. The outfits might not look like Louis Vuitton, but they’re all from the designer collection.
“Cause it’s Louis Vuitton Don night…” Kanye West mentions Louis Vuitton 19 separate times in his lyrics. Here are Kim, Kanye, Kylie, and Travis Scott at the Paris Louis Vuitton Menswear Show in 2018.
While this look wasn’t overdone on a DJ Khaled level, it’s still some pretty heavy going. Well, if you consider dedication heavy-going. We think it’s beyond stylish. Virgil Abloh is the creative director of LV’s menswear. He also happens to be a close friend of Kanye West.
Don’t Think Scott Disick Doesn’t Join In
Scott Disick might not be a Kardashian by blood, but this guy is more than family. As a dad to Kourtney Kardashian’s three kids, this guy has been rubbing shoulders with Hollywood’s most famous family for nearly a decade. Scott is currently dating Sofia Richie (who herself has been spotted in Louis Vuitton boots).
Scott is fancy. His Instagram handle points to his “Lord” moniker, and the clothes match the status. With Gucci shirts and private jets, this guy rolls with #MoneySwag. It also happens to include some Louis Vuitton.
While this jacket worked great in terms of style for Scott, you can’t deny that it’s loud. Add on the fact that we’ve seen this jacket as Scott sat in a private jet– either it’s too much, or it’s envy. Which side you sit on is your choice.
Jaden Smith: When You’re The Brand’s Face…
Will Smith’s kids are now total A-Listers. Jaden and Willow Smith may have started running around after their famous dad, but the fashion world has noticed them. Jaden now fronts Louis Vuitton. He has also posed with LV’s super-stylish sneakers alongside Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin.
This look might not have rocked the celeb-loved Supreme range, but it was LV through and through. Staying a little more traditional with leathers and browns, the brand was definitely noticeable here. Some might say a little too noticeable.
Still, when you’re a brand’s face, you’re a #Ambassador. Doing an excellent job here for Louis Vuitton (and reminding them why they hired Jaden), here is Will Smith’s son having his Louis Vuitton moment.
Mariah Carey: Shuts Down Louis Vuitton To Shop There
In 2018, Hollywood Pipeline was reporting that Mariah Carey was “sipping champagne” as she shopped at Louis Vuitton. This is a lady who comes with a #Personal. Mariah Carey shuts down Louis Vuitton just so she can shop there. Well, when Forbes lists your net worth as $535 million, you can afford it, right?
We noticed that Mariah was wearing Louis Vuitton while shopping at Louis Vuitton. Yes, the scarf. It’s beyond stylish, but when you’re wearing LV to shop at LV (and they shut their doors to the public just for you), you get a #Extra.
No, you can’t afford it. Yes, the pics are like Netflix bingeing. Hit share on Facebook for anyone who needs to see– there are levels of Louis Vuitton. This one just got topped.
