Louis Vuitton is making some big moves and holding on to the lead as ranking superior as the top luxury brand. With Interbrand’s Best Global Brands 2017 ranking the veteran a the top of all luxury brands.
While Apple, Google, and Microsoft are the three most valuable brands, Louis Vuitton held its position at 19, Hermès climbed two places to 32 and Gucci climbed one spot to 51. Burberry slipped three places to 86, while Prada dropped 13 places to 94 and Ralph Lauren fell out of the rankings, from 98th last year.
In the very heart of Paris, in the foundations of the Royal Palace where history is palpable, Louis Vuitton has found its own special significance, traveling between the past and the present, forever joining together as one. The Spring-Summer 2018 collection is all about anachronisms, a dialogue of wardrobes transcending time.
The luxury brand confirmed the announcement Saturday on Instagram, posting a picture of Emma with Louis Vuitton‘s artistic directorNicolas Ghesquière captioned, “#LouisVuitton is delighted to announce Emma Stone as the latest ambassador for the Maison. A muse and friend of Louis Vuitton Women’s Artistic Director @NicolasGhesquiere, Emma prepares to walk the red carpet for her latest movie #BattleoftheSexes in a #LVSS18 gown.”

Louis Vuitton’s new boutique opened across from the Ritz on Monday night. The boutique is outrageous—there’s a giant golden statue of King Louis wearing LV boots, followed by floor after floor of clothes and accessories, the best trunk I’ve ever seen, some pretty amazing art, and a bunch of giant unset stones that got my heart racing. Michelle Williams, Busy Phillips, and I went to the party hours after arriving in Paris.
