The desert outside of Los Angeles got a whole lot chicer last night when Louis Vuitton descended on the legendary Bob Hope estate in Palm Springs to show its resort 2016 collection. The evening was rife with major fashion moments that happened on the runway, plus celebrity spottings and a carnival-themed after-party.

Tough met soft in a powerful way thanks to cut-at-the-waist leather jackets styled with flowing maxiskirts.

The style world’s collective obsession with sneakers doesn’t appear to be going anywhere—which, awesome! Another thing about this look? The print is crafted all of sequins.

Itsy-bitsy shorts, seen here in leather, made models’ legs look a mile long.

The folksy feel that permeated the location popped up on the runway too, in ground-sweeping, high-neck gowns that felt like a high-fashion Little House on the Prairie moment.

It’s worth putting money on the fact that this beauty will be coming to a red carpet sometime soon. A figure-hugging silhouette and a raised croc print begging to be touched are too good not to be shown off.

There were branded bumper cars at the afterparty.

And classic arcade games, including a claw machine that offered up prizes way (WAY) better than anything in the history of arcades.

The most amazing celebrity sighting involved Miranda Kerr and Selena Gomez. We’ll credit this cozy snap to the power of fashion.

Louis Vuitton’s Red Square Trunk To Be Removed After Uproar (PHOTOS)

Louis Vuitton is facing backlash following the installation of a 30-foot-tall, 112-foot-long brown trunk in Russia’s Red Square, which sits just beside the mausoleum where Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin’s was laid to rest. On Wednesday, Russia’s presidential administration ordered that the symbol of luxury be removed.

The two-story trunk, which features Louis Vuitton’s signature logo as well as the Russian flag, was meant to house a temporary exhibit, “The Soul of Travel,” organized by Moscow’s GUM department store. But this bourgeois statement in a locale riddled with Communist history didn’t sit well with many people. Alexander Sidyakin, a member of the Russian parliament, filed a complaint with the country’s antitrust watchdog, seeking to remove the trunk on the basis that it violates advertising laws. Following the public outcry, it looks like Sidyakin will get his wish.

“This is a sacred place for the Russian state,” Sergei Obukhov, a member of the Communist Party Central Committee, told the Wall Street Journal. “There are some symbols that cannot be trivialized or denigrated.”

In a statement, Louis Vuitton previously said that the oversized version of its trademark trunk was actually a nod to Russian history, as it’s modeled after “a trunk which once belonged to Prince Wladimir Orloff” and contains his monogrammed initials. Even the exhibition itself has ties to Russia — proceeds from the six-week show will be donated to the Naked Heart Foundation, a children’s charity backed by Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova. (She’s also the girlfriend of Bernard Arnault, the chairman and CEO of LVMH, the luxury conglomerate that owns Louis Vuitton.)

Despite the forced removal of the trunk, a representative from GUM department store had said that the company had received full governmental clearance before having it installed. We’ve reached out to Louis Vuitton for further comment.

See photos of the Louis Vuitton trunk in Russia’s Red Square below and tell us: Do you think it should have been removed?
