There are very few things in this world that can get us jumping out of ours beds on a chilly Wednesday morning— a supermodel comeback is one of those of things!
Marking one of the biggest highlights of the fashion season thus far, supermodel Maggie Rizer made a triumphant return to the catwalk at the Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 show this morning, marking her first runway show in over a decade. The mother of two— who welcomed her second child, a son, one year ago this month— was cast as a runway exclusive in Nicholas Ghesquiere’s first show for the French house, walking the runway in a grey A-line skirt and graphic zip-up sweater as if not a day had past.
Following the show, Maggie shared her excitement with her fans on Instagram, posting a photo of her runway look with the caption: “So honored to be exclusive my first show season back for Nicholas’ first show for @louisvuitton. Congratulations on an incredible collection #nicolasghesquiere”
The Louis Vuitton runway also saw the return of another fashion week favorite this morning: the one and only Freja Beha Erichsen! Having been absent from the runways for several seasons now, the Danish beauty returned today to open the hotly-anticipated show, thus ending the week on a high note. Joining fellow catwalkers Liya Kebede, Malaika Firth and Julia Nobis, Freja lead the pack in a beautiful Mod cream dress paired with a sophisticated black leather jacket, knee-high riding bots and a mini Louis Vuitton trunk bag.
Since kicking off in New York last month, the Fall 2014 collections have seen the return of over a dozen former runway icons, including Bridget Hall, Angela Lindvall and Jacquetta Wheeler at Alexander Wang; Mini Anden at Proenza Schouler; Frankie Rayder and Carolyn Murphy at Michael Kors; and Naomi Campbell at Philip Plein. Clearly, designers and models agree— old-school beauty is most definitely “in” this season!
