Delphine Arnault Style Crush

The accomplished, driven, understated and beautiful Delphine Arnault is the heir to luxury powerhouse LVMH, Executive Vice President to Louis Vuitton, and sits on the board of some of the world’s most famous brands under the LVMH banner – she is also our latest ‘Style Crush.’

Her father is Bernard Arnault, Frances’s richest man who owns the LVMH conglomerate. It has been widely speculated that Delphine Arnault will one day take over the reigns at LVMH which also owns some of our favourite fashion houses such Fendi, Dior, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Celine and Kenzo.

Not just a pretty face, the highly intelligent yet reserved Delphine graduated from the prestigious London School of Economics and Political Science and has consulted at McKinsey. However, her real talent lies in the ability to scout and bring a slew of fresh talent to LVMH. Recent examples include Nicolas Ghesquière for Dior handbags. Such is her success for procuring young talent, Delphine launched the first annual LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers in 2014.

Delphine’s sartorial style is elegant, classic and polished. Favouring black, black and more black, she is often seen in a signature skinny or straight leg black pant and plain black pointy pump. Delphine doesn’t wear much in the way of statement jewellery; instead a small Louis Vuitton handbag is her preferred choice of accessory.

When Delphine isn’t wearing pants and black jacket, she can be seen in knee length textured coats – but always over black pants!

We also love Delphine’s minimalist approach to her hair style. With fine shoulder length honey blonde hair, Delphine prefers to keep her hair natural and apart from the rare photo shoot, is only occasionally seen with a perfectly coiffed blow dry.

In the fashion world where social media and having your photo taken at every party is seen as par for the course, Delphine is only in the spotlight when necessary –  which makes sense for the notoriously private heir. However her understated  style, elegant demeanour, and reputation as an accomplished and invaluable businesswomen means we all need to watch this space as Delphine Arnout has only just began her world domination.
