Lights! Camera! Good Morning Vogue! Ella Emhoff Takes Us Inside Balenciaga’s Red-Carpet Premiere
“There’s a red carpet behind me, there are no seats, and all I know is Balenciaga does the most interesting and creative shows of the season,” says model Ella Emhoff as she arrives at Balenciaga’s spring 2022 show space. Yes, even the models at Balenciaga are along for the ride—and this season’s red-carpet premiere spectacular was quite a ride.
As Emhoff illustrates on this episode of Good Morning Vogue, everything at Balenciaga is orchestrated to a tee, from her slicked-back hair to the rhythm of the guests on the red carpet…but there are a few surprises along the way. Before the show she tests out red-carpet poses with another model and explores the backstage area of Paris’s legendary Théâtre du Châtelet. And then, after nailing the red carpet alongside other modeling legends like Amber Valletta and Naomi Campbell, Emhoff and guests are treated to a very special surprise episode of The Simpsons that imagines Homer, Marge, and the entire town of Springfield as Balenciaga models. What could the Simpsons learn from an actual Balenciaga model like Emhoff?
