I kid you not. He wore a bubblegum pink mid-calf length T-shirt dress, teaming it with a black clutch and pirate shoes with large diamante buckles, to the opening of the “Louis Vuitton-Marc Jacobs: The Exhibition” in Paris on Weds night. Wanna see how he looked, and also pics from the event?

Held at the prestigious Les Arts Décoratifs wing of the Louvre, the soiree was to celebrate the exhibition highlighting the contributions of Louis Vuitton and the maison’s artistic director of the past 15 years, Marc Jacobs, to the fashion/luxury industry.

The exhibition, opens on 9th March and continues until 16th September, 2012,  is spread out over two floors of the museum, with the work of Louis Vuitton on the first floor (mostly trunks) and, separated by more than a century, the work of Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton on the second floor (mostly handbags, shoes, clothes, collaborations and advertisements).

“Each has a vision that has changed the industry as a whole,” said Pamela Golbin, the exhibition’s curator, “They were in the right place at the right time.” It was the industrialization of the late 19th century that called for the need for trunks for new means of travel. While for Marc Jacobs, it was the opportunities presented by the globalization of fashion in the early 21st century, which he exploited perfectly, through theatrical seasonal fashion shows, to make the LV monogram, arguably, the most conspicuous fashion label the world over.

SO, how did Marc Jacobs look? Rather fetching, I thought. No? Or, too attention-seeking? I mean, who can begrudge him for that antic? After the spectacular Louis Vuitton Autumn/Winter 2012 show he pulled out of the hat earlier in the day, and he was the man of the hour, after all…

P.S.: I just found out that the pink dress T-shirt’s from Comme des Garçons Homme Plus S/S’12. So what? It’s still a girly outfit, no?
