Stranger things kids

Something strange is happening at Louis Vuitton’s Paris headquarters.

Three young stars from Netflix’s cult TV show, Stranger Things, are riding their new fame wave in the best possible style. After performing ‘Uptown Funk’ at the Emmys this month, they have arrived in Paris to hang on the balcony of Louis Vuitton’s Parisian headquarters with the house’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière.

Nicolas shared images of himself with the trio this week with the caption “GOT STRANGERS IN THE HOUSE TODAY”.

Millie Bobby Brown, 12, who plays head-shaven Eleven, poses at the front in a pink faux-fur jacket while Gaten Matarazzo, 14, and Caleb McLaughlin pose at the back with Nicolas. A previous post from the creative director, known for his slightly sci-fi style, hints at an “exciting project” with the trio.

With Paris Fashion Week just one day away (in Paris time) fans are hoping they will somehow be involved in Louis Vuitton’s fashion show, while other fashion commentators are picking a new campaign – littered with as many 80s references as the Stranger Things show. Ghesquière has already proven he isn’t afraid of quirky campaigns, showcasing a video game character from Final Fantasy XII and young musician Jaden Smith as models in previous campaigns.

Millie, in particular, has fast been earning her fashion stripes – sitting front row at New York Fashion Week with the imitable Winona Ryder and showing off her 90s British style on Instagram, to her legion of 1.2 million followers.

Although we’re wondering where the other two Stranger Things kids have been while this trio has been travelling the world, we are just as excited as the kids about this pending fashion news.
