Cardi B was determined to embrace her natural hair for the 2018 Met Gala.

The Bodak Yellow hitmaker stepped out alongside designer Jeremy Scott for the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination-themed event held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City back in May 2018.

Cardi was in the first trimester of her pregnancy with daughter Kulture at the time, and when it came to her look, the star had very specific ideas – right down to the styling of her hair.

“All I thought about was just royal, queen, mother Mary, because I was pregnant. I really wanted to do that, but a modern version… I love when my real hair is out… It was like a lion. I just feel so beautiful, I feel so natural, I feel like that represents me,” the 27-year-old said in a video for Vogue.com, before hinting that she had a few extensions added in for more volume. “I mean, my hair don’t get that big, you know what I’m saying? I need more inches.”

And Jeremy was thrilled Cardi stuck to her guns when it came to her hairstyle.

“She was dead set that she wanted to have this hair, and this volume. So, she went that direction, and again, I think she was completely right,” he added.

Elsewhere in the clip, the rapper also divulged that she was very picky about finding the exact right shade of red lipstick for the prestigious fashion bash, and eventually settled on a striking ruby hue.

“Us women, we are very specific about red. So, we decided to do a red lip, and I just felt like the red didn’t match. It wasn’t the red that I wanted, so my make-up artist was running back and forth getting different types of reds to match the jewels on the dress and the crown… just the little things set everything off,” she smiled.

Editors at U.S. Vogue magazine will be hosting a virtual Met Gala event on YouTube on Monday.

The annual Costume Institute Gala was due to be held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on 4 May, with the fashion bash set to celebrate the opening of the spring exhibition titled About Time: Fashion and Duration.

But while regular co-chair and U.S. Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour confirmed that the 2020 Met Gala would be postponed indefinitely back in March due to the coronavirus crisis, she has now unveiled a line-up of online content for keen fashionistas.

“It would be impossible to recreate the gala on Monday evening, though I have loved hearing how so many are marking the occasion in their own ways,” she said. “So instead, I asked a few friends to join me for a simple moment – one that I hope will bring us all a bit of joy.”

The programming will kick off with a look at actress Liza Koshy’s best red carpet moments, followed by British supermodel Naomi Campbell reflecting on some of her most iconic looks.

The A Moment With the Met will begin at 6pm EST, with the livestream to include performances from Florence + The Machine and a DJ set by Louis Vuitton menswear designer Virgil Abloh. Another clip, entitled Everything You Need to Know About the Met Gala, is to start after.

And on Tuesday, fashion stars such as Cardi B, Jeremy Scott, Liv Tyler, and Stella McCartney will take part in further Met Gala-related discussions.

As part of the initiative, bosses at Vogue will be donating to the Costume Institute and A Common Thread, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund for Covid-19 relief. They will be asking viewers to consider contributing if they can.

While guests for the 2020 Met Gala were not revealed prior to the postponement, the evening’s co-chairs were to include Louis Vuitton’s Nicolas Ghesquiere and Hollywood stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Emma Stone, and Meryl Streep.

Moschino channels Marie Antoinette for fall 20 collection

Jeremy Scott has channelled Marie Antoinette with his latest Moschino collection.

The creative director of the Italian label unveiled his fall/winter 2020 line as part of Milan Fashion Week on Thursday, with the likes of Chiara Ferragni, Yolanda Hadid, and Saweetie all perched on the front row.

Titled Let Them Eat Moschino, Scott once again stuck to his signature camp aesthetic and scattered the range with references to portraits of the last Queen of France before the French Revolution in 1789, as well as to the famous phrase she was believed to have once uttered.

Regarding the concept, the designer told Vogue backstage that he had been influenced by the political divisions around the world occurring at present, especially in relation to protests in Hong Kong, Brexit in the U.K., and backlash over some of U.S. President Donald Trump’s more controversial policies. Yet, rather than offering up a very serious spectacle, he opted instead to spark a sense of delight within the audience.

“All I can do is offer respite,” he shared. “Even if you continue to fight, you need that moment of joy. We all need something uplifting. My role on this earth has only ever been to spread joy and bring happiness.”

To open, model Deirdre Firinne took to the catwalk in a gold embroidered denim dress with extremely wide skirt along with matching lace-up boots and an enormous wig courtesy of hairstylist Paul Hanlon.

A parade of similarly dramatic outfits followed, though Scott interspersed them with ladylike metallic suits, whimsical printed dresses, and candy-striped ballgowns.

Highlights included a black outfit with Moschino logo as worn by Irina Shayk, with the look topped off with layers of ’80s-style chain necklaces, and Bella Hadid in a white dress with wide skirt which was matched with a cropped black leather jacket.

And the fashion star saved his most couture creations till last, with Joan Smalls concluding the presentation by wearing a dress that resembled a tiered cake, and Gigi Hadid stepping out in a coat made entirely of faux red and pink roses.

Jeremy Scott has decided not to present his autumn/winter 2020 collection during New York Fashion Week in February.

The 44-year-old designer was scheduled to unveil the latest collection for his namesake label in the Big Apple on 7 February, but he has now decided to show his designs in Paris during Couture Week in July.

“Jeremy Scott will no longer be showing his fall-winter 2020 collection during New York Fashion Week. In a move to pay homage to the city that launched his design career, Jeremy Scott will show his upcoming collection in Paris in July,” representatives for Scott said in a statement, according to WWD.

Scott, who is also creative director of Moschino, isn’t the only New York Fashion Week regular to move his show elsewhere – Tom Ford has decided to show his upcoming collection at Milk Studios in Los Angeles on 7 February, just two days before the Oscars.

“This year, the New York Fashion Week calendar exactly overlaps Oscar weekend, and the last time that happened I showed in L.A. and it worked quite well,” Ford commented back in December. “There is an excitement in L.A. on that particular weekend and the relationship between film and fashion is a strong one. In my role as chairman of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, my main intent and priority is to globalise and bring attention to American fashion. There is truly no bigger or more prominent stage in the world at any given time than Los Angeles during the Academy Awards.”

The NYFW schedule is also missing Tommy Hilfiger, who will be hosting his presentation in London, and Pyer Moss, who is sitting out of this season.

However, the calendar still includes shows from Brandon Maxwell, Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs, and Oscar de la Renta. It takes place between 7 and 12 February.

Jeremy Scott believes so much pressure is placed on having a good New Year’s Eve that it’s “almost like asking for failure”.

While many people like to ensure they ring in the New Year in style, the Moschino creative designer dislikes the pressure being placed on coming up with a big night out plan for the 31 December, especially as he doesn’t feel the need to have one spectacular bash to see out the year because he attends so many unforgettable events all the time.

“There’s so much pressure for it to be a big night it’s almost like asking for failure. For my job, I have such wonderful events like tonight all year around, I don’t need that one party,” he told W magazine.

The 44-year-old took time out of his busy schedule to visit his family in his hometown of Kansas City, Missouri for Thanksgiving in November, and revealed to the outlet that he wanted to go somewhere hot over the festive holidays.

“I would love to go to The Maldives, cold and snowy just isn’t my vibe. Give me beautiful sunsets and warm ocean water!” Scott shared, adding that he is so busy with work that he’ll hardly be at home so he didn’t see the point of putting up Christmas decorations.

“I’m always busy working, so why am I going to put my house through that just to take it down, when I’m not even here?” he asked.

Scott is yet to reveal on social media if he ended up going to The Maldives.

Gwen Stefani thanked her mum and grandmother for giving her their sense of style as she picked up the Fashion Icon honour at the People’s Choice Awards on Sunday night.

The pop star revealed her matriarchs influenced her look and inspired her love of fashion as she hit the stage to collect her honour in Santa Monica, California.

“I always loved fashion, it was one of those instinctual things,” the 50-year-old said. “My mom would come home from school and my grandmother would have made her prom dress.”

Her designer pal Jeremy Scott was on hand to salute her at the awards show, insisting Gwen’s designs “always have a piece of her in them”, and adding, “She has never forgotten who she is or who we are.”

The former No Doubt frontwoman wowed in a blush Vera Wang gown with a huge black bow and walked the red carpet with boyfriend Blake Shelton, who was wearing jeans and brown boots.

She also discussed what it was like to have fans of No Doubt copying her style.

“I can remember being on the tour bus with No Doubt and looking out the window… and seeing myself and going, ‘Wait a minute, that girl’s copying me!” Gwen told E! News host Giuliana Rancic. “To have someone copy me was just bizarre – and it’s a great feeling, especially when you’re designing as well.”

Stefani, the brains behind fashion brands L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers, later revealed she would be handing her trophy to her 11-year-old son Zuma.

Moschino has collaborated with beer brand Budweiser on a capsule collection.

Jeremy Scott, creative director of the Italian fashion brand, included a dress inspired by the Budweiser label in a pop culture-influenced collection back in 2014.

Now, to mark the launch of two new limited-edition beer bottles, Scott has created a 15-piece range to match.

“Moschino x Budweiser wear your style and drink your taste,” a Moschino representative wrote on Instagram, while the American designer added: “EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE MY BUDWEISER X MOSCHINO CAPSULE COLLECTION AVAILABLE NOW ON MOSCHINO.COM.”

The line includes T-shirts, hoodies, trackpants, a dress, and a one-piece swimsuit, while earrings, bags, caps, and wallets are among the accessory options.

Items are priced from $75 – $2,385 (£58 – £1,847) and are available to purchase from the label’s website.

Meanwhile, Moschino has also dropped an accompanying campaign based around the collection, with the images featuring models in the outfits in front of a collage background.

Luisana Gonzalez and Joao Knorr star in one picture, while Estelle Chen fronts another image with the headline “Moschino. King of Clothes. Budweiser,” a play on the beer brand’s slogan – The King of Beers.

And while the line only dropped on Monday, users have inundated Scott’s Instagram page with comments, with one person writing, “This is the collab I didn’t know I needed,” and another adding: “LOVE YA! THIRSTY FOR A BEER NOW!”

Jeremy Scott has designed a new trench coat for London Fog.

The creative director of Moschino has teamed up with the American outwear brand once again to design a classic beige coat which features bold graffiti-style graphics on the front and back.

“Growing up, London Fog made that winter coat that you got for the new school year,” he told InStyle of the Jeremy Scott x London Fog piece. “When you think about fall weather, with the rain and all that, you think about a trench coat. It is such a classic, and I loved the idea of putting a spin on it and playing with that.”

And the designer insisted that the unique trench can be worn by anyone and “goes with everything”.

“Clothes have no gender, so I feel like they should be for everyone. Who cares which way it buttons or what department it’s in? It’s more about it being something that you love and that you like the way it fits,” Scott shared.

While his first eight-piece collection for the brand launched back in March and heavily featured leopard print, this time around he focused on incorporating colour into the new trench coat.

Scott looked at vintage photos of New York City from the 1980s, specifically the graffiti-covered subway trains.

“I thought about all the graffiti on the trains, and wanted to kind of merge the two together, where the graffiti had gotten on the trench,” he explained. “I was thinking about the trench being ‘tagged,’ and then tagging New York City and London in a really vibrant way. The trench is so ubiquitous that it’s almost become anonymous. I decided to make it stand out, to feel singular and one-of-a-kind.”

The trench coat, which is available in sizes extra small to extra large, can be purchased from London Fog’s website for $298 (£242).

Jeremy Scott has paid tribute to Pablo Picasso for Moschino’s spring/summer 2020 collection.

The fashion designer unveiled his latest line for the Italian label as part of Milan Fashion Week on Thursday night, and true to form, offered up an extravagant spectacle.

Honouring the life and artwork of the Spanish painter and sculptor, the presentation opened with a model walking the runway in a brightly coloured dress which evoked Picasso’s early Fauvist-inspired art.

Brightly coloured printed suits and graphic coats with sharp shoulders followed, with dresses resembling the flowing curves and abstract shapes of the icon’s first Cubist pieces.

Referencing Picasso’s heritage, one model sported the red cape and black hat of a matador, along with blue leggings and shiny gold jewellery, while another carried a black purse with the words “Bull chic” splashed across the front.

Joan Smalls rocked a red and gold dress inspired by the embellished outfits worn by bullfighters, and another model showed off a red polka dot dress with ruffled sleeves, similar to the worn of flamenco dancers.

A highlight of the collection was a black gown dotted with sequin flower appliques, with the look worn by Stella Maxwell, as was a black velvet dress with architectural shoulders that was dotted with blue and green beads and had pink lining in the skirt.

Yet, somehow Scott managed to turn the theme up another notch towards the end of the presentation, having Kaia Gerber walk the catwalk in an outfit shaped into a guitar, as influenced by Picasso’s still life paintings, another model donned a sequin dress which referred to the artist’s groundbreaking 1907 work Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, and others sported pieces that looked like actual gold Baroque picture frames.

To conclude, Bella Hadid rocked a pink and blue sequin jumpsuit which alluded to Picasso’s paintings of harlequins, Irina Shayk dazzled in a gold and black dress with violin motif, and Gigi Hadid was Moschino’s “bride” in an over-the-top white dress with huge veil and dove motifs attached to the front.

Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk and Joan Smalls have joined forces for a new Dynasty-inspired Moschino ad.

The supermodels feature in the fall 2019 campaign, which is heavily influenced by the 1980s TV soap opera that starred Joan Collins, Linda Evans and John Forsythe.

Creative director Jeremy Scott has teamed up with fashion photographer Steven Meisel for the ads, and according to the press release from the Italian fashion house, “there is drama, catfights and over the top glamour.”

Male models Denek Kania, Mason McKenrick and Trevor Signorino make up the rest of the cast, as Hadid, Shayk, and Smalls play powerful wealthy women who either embark on affairs or catch their cheating husbands in the act.

The ’80s-inspired costumes were styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, with hairstylist Guido Palau backcombing the models’ hair into bouffants, and the legendary Pat McGrath on make-up.

Hadid shared the teaser trailer of the ad campaign on Instagram and tagged Shayk and Smalls.

“A look into the MOSCHINO DYNASTY. COMING SOON TO A SCREEN NEAR YOU,” the 24-year-old wrote. “This was the best day. Obsessed with you, my girls. Days like this are the ones I dreamt about when I wanted to be in this industry. Thank you, forever.”

Shayk, 33, who recently split with Bradley Cooper, also posted the video on social media.

“So happy to be a part of the new @moschino campaign. Jeremy always bringing excitement and laughter to fashion,” the mother-of-one wrote on Instagram, while a Moschino rep wrote on the brand’s official page: “TUNE IN THIS SEASON ON @MOSCHINO AND WATCH AS ALL THE DRAMA UNFOLDS!”
