Love Ball Unites Fashion & Art at Fondation Louis Vuitton

The City of Light shines a little brighter during Couture Week, when the fashion tribe descends on Paris to see supremely decadent runway shows – and to attend fabulous parties. On 6 July, the glamorous jet-set gathered at the Fondation Louis Vuittion for the fifth annual ‘The Art of Giving’ Love Ball. Under the patronage of Bernard Arnault, LVMH Chairman and CEO and Fondation Louis Vuitton President, the event raised €3.9 million for model Natalia Vodianova’s Naked Heart Foundation. Fashion, art and media’s elite filled the Frank Gehry-designed space for dinner, performances and a charity auction of contemporary art, led by Oliver Barker, Chairman of Sotheby's Europe.
