It was the lovely clothes she crafted for her own daughter that first intrigued Jean Lanvin’s fans in 1909.

Soon clients came calling, including some of Paris’ wealthy elite. It wasn’t long before her custom pieces were transformed into a full-on empire.

Today, under Alber Elbaz, lush and luxe pieces continue to abound at the House of Lanvin, and so do wealthy, elite clients.

From Janet Jackson to Jennifer Lopez, high-powered women continue to lust after Lanvin’s gorgeous, glam pieces which accentuate the figure and play up the curves.

See how they wear it and be inspired!
