Stars react to Louis Vuitton's new menswear designer

Who says you can't do it all?

Virgil Abloh started out interning at Fendi alongside Kanye West back in 2009. Just two years later he became a Grammy-nominated art director for Jay-Z and Kanye West's album "Watch the Throne," and a year after that he launched his luxury Italian street-wear label Off-White. Since the brand's 2012 launch, Off-White has collaborated with every major company including Nike, Jimmy Choo, Ikea and Warby Parker.

When news broke yesterday that Abloh (who is only 37 years old) would take the reigns as Louis Vuitton's men's creative director, the internet went wild. This position was once held by Marc Jacobs for 16 years. The designer will still be designing for Off-White and told the New York Times he plans to "relocate his family to Paris for the job". 

From Kendall Jenner to Rita Ora, check out celeb reactions to Virgil Abloh's newest fashion venture below.
