Louis Vuitton models arrive on the runway by train

One for theatrics and grandeur when it comes to his fashion shows, Marc Jacobs dominated Paris Fashion week with his runway for Louis Vuitton on Wednesday.

This is even better than the new SEPTA bullet trains!

One for theatrics and grandeur when it comes to his fashion shows, Marc Jacobs beat out Karl Lagerfeld's jumbo-jet setting for Chanel's couture show last month and Christopher Bailey's rain on the runway idea for Burberry Prorsum at London Fashion Week with his latest runway setting.

The star designer, who's known for staging whimsical fashion shows for his own personal amusement, certainly outdid every other designer (including himself) with Louis Vuitton's Autumn/Winter 2013 RTW collection show on Wednesday.

Stunned guests could hardly contain their shock and excitement as models arrived onto the runway via train. That's right! Marc Jacobs staged a platform, train track and an actual train that rode in to the venue.

But that's not it! He also had luggage holders accompany each of his models down the runway.

Last season, Jacobs featured a carousel with each of his models rising off a horse to walk down the runway. We didn't think he could really top that, but the designer has certainly out-done himself.

Perhaps as an homage to Harry Potter? Or the Polar Express? Or maybe he enjoys the Hunger Games? Although we can speculate as much as we'd like as to what exactly inspired the designer to devise and craft such a grand scene, one thing's certain: Through his mystical, enchanting, Victorian-esque stage, each fashionista present at the show was able to experience a slice of his or her imagination and childhood.

Enjoy!
