Nicolas Ghesquiére showed his second cruise collection for Louis Vuitton on Wednesday at a runway extravaganza in Palm Springs.

Hosted at the Bob and Dolores Hope Estate, the can't-miss event was arguably the most stylish gathering the desert has seen in a long time (sorry, Coachella).

In case you missed Wednesday's show, we've highlighted a few key points we think you should know. Keep reading to see our recap and let us know what you think of the collection in the comment section below.   

1. Ghesquiére set a stylish scene.

The Hope Estate was a spectacular setting that served well as the host of Ghesquiére's elaborate affair. Guests were greeted by models sporting technicolor makeup by Pat McGrath, and the fun only continued from there.

"I remember coming to Palm Springs 15 or 20 years ago and being so impressed by this place, it's almost like a castle," Ghesquière told Vogue backstage after the show.

"The Hopes were really brave and radical to build something so ahead of its time with John Lautner." 

2. The collection was in part inspired by Robert Altman's film "3 Women."

The inspiration translated into a collection California's cool girls are probably dying to wear. Bold prints, maxi dresses, color-blocked sequins, hot pants, biker jackets and cropped bombers all stood out in the collection of must-have items. 

3. The show was a star-studded one.

Kanye West, Selena Gomez, Miranda Kerr, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Catherine Deneuve, Michelle Williams, Marisa Tomei, Alicia Vikander and Maggie Cheung were all in attendance. 

4. The after-party was just as elaborate as the show.

The party was an outdoor carnival complete with bumper cars, video games, a mechanical claw booth filled with monogrammed Louis Vuitton clutches, a photo booth, a dance floor and much more.

"This is so much fun. I wanted people to stay and play and have a good time," Ghesquiére told WWD
