Steven Yeun, Barry Keoghan Attend Louis Vuitton’s L.A. Men’s Pop-up – WWD

Estimated read time 3 min read


On your mark, get ready…Golden Globes week partying started early Wednesday night at the Louis Vuitton pop-up in West Hollywood, featuring Pharrell Williams’ first men’s collection for the house, which is sure to make a red carpet impact this season.

“You’re the guy I’m looking for,” exclaimed Jaden Smith, eyeing a server with a tray of Champagne glasses. “Thank god,” he sighed. “Thank you.”

He was ready for a drink, it seemed, as he balanced holding his blue Louis Vuitton “Millionaire” Speedy in his other hand.

Williams’ take on the French house’s well-known bag was in action, though he was MIA.

The store, one of 50 now open worldwide, has a hidden room behind a bookcase displaying the colorful Speedy bags.

Best Actor nominees Barry Keoghan of “Saltburn” and Steven Yeun, star of Netflix’s “Beef,” were among the guests to first visit the store open through March, which has a gold installation designed to look like the Pont Neuf where Williams held his June 2023 show in Paris.

“I really love what Pharrell is doing,” said Yeun. “I had the pleasure this season of being able to be dressed by them.”

Will we see him in Louis Vuitton at the Globes on Sunday?

“This Sunday, I’m not positive,” he smiled. There’s time. He’s also up for Best Actor at the Critics Choice Awards and for Outstanding Lead Actor at the Emmys.

“Megan and I have been friends for a long time,” he said of working with his stylist, Megan Bowman Gray. “We’ve gone through a big journey together. And then we somehow ended up on the same street that we live on together with kids the same age. So, it just kind of feels organic.”

Yeun, 40, made a name for himself in AMC’s series “The Walking Dead” and stunned viewers in Lee Isaac Chung’s 2020 film “Minari” prior to the success of “Beef,” which premiered in April 2023.

“All of it’s just a privilege,” he went on, alongside his wife, photographer Joana Pak. “We have such a robust, real family life. So sometimes I can jump in and out, and I love that it’s kind of just a ride that I’m on. And I’m just taking it step by step. So, it’s been really fun. I am lucky to have been in the biz for a minute so that I can not be too nervous going into these things. But it’s just extra icing on the cake.”

He’s looking forward to the release of some upcoming projects, which include Bong Joon Ho’s “Mickey 17” with Robert Pattinson and Sam and Andy Zuchero’s “Love Me” opposite Kristen Stewart.

“I think just being open to whatever feels creative and fulfilling,” he added of what’s ahead. “And I’m hopefully not trying to be in a place where I’m just grabbing, but kind of just letting it be in flow.”

Any New Year resolutions? “To be back in my body and not in my head.”
