On November 14 2008, Steven Meisel shot the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2009 collection photoshoot, featuring Madonna, at Café Figaro in Los Feliz, California.
Madonna transformed into Marc Jacob’s vision of the quintessential Parisienne, striking provocative poses in the season’s sexy short skirts, ethnic-inspired sandals and animal-print bangles.
“I wanted the campaign to be very bold, very sensual and very atmospheric. To carry off all these references and all this sophistication, we needed the ultimate performer – and for me, that is Madonna,” stated Jacobs.
