Hollywood star Jennifer Connelly has opened up about her close friendship with Louis Vuitton designer Nicolas Ghesquière.

Actress Jennifer Connelly is grateful to Nicolas Ghesquière for making her "far more fashionable" than she actually is.

The Noah star is among the Louis Vuitton designer's muses and helped him fete the opening of the fashion house's new exhibition Series 2 – Past, Present and Future at the beginning of this year (15). She's also modelled for the label and feels in the fashion star's debt for helping her style star rise.

"We instantly hit it off and stayed in touch over the years," she smiled of the creative director during an interview with The Edit. "I was drawn to him as a person, but also to his designs.

"Nicolas makes (being stylish) easier. He makes me far more fashionable than I am."

Jennifer, 44, was of course clad in Louis Vuitton when she attended the Met Gala in May (15). She looked stunning in a lacy white gown from Nicolas, surely doing him proud on the red carpet.

And it looks like the star is already passing on her new-found fashion skills to daughter Agnes, four, who she has with actor husband Paul Bettany. According to Jennifer, the little one just can't get enough of accessories.

"Already Agnes likes to walk around the house in my shoes," she laughed. "When I left the house the other day, she had two hats, one on top of the other, and a scarf tied around her neck like a cape. She definitely has theatrical flair."

Jennifer will have plenty of opportunities to wear Louis Vuitton as she promotes her new film Shelter, a drama directed and written by her husband. She plays Hannah, who falls in love while homeless in New York. It rolls out in cinemas from December (15).
