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 drops out of New York Fashion Week

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!”

Barbara Palvin: ‘Fashion doesn’t excite me’

Barbara Palvin considers fashion her job, not a personal interest.

The Victoria’s Secret Angel and Sports Illustrated model was discovered in Budapest at the age of 13, and four years later, she made her Milan Fashion Week debut for Prada.

She’s since walked for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Vivienne Westwood, and Chanel, and has landed high-profile campaigns for H&M, Armani Exchange and L’Oreal Paris.

However, the 25-year-old considers fashion her job, not a personal interest, and told Fashionista she would rather wear clothes from the closet of her boyfriend, actor Dylan Sprouse.

“I’ve definitely learned a few things through 13 years of work, but fashion still doesn’t really excite me,” she candidly shared. “Sometimes when Dylan gets some stuff, I take it.”

She also revealed she is bored by shopping, and because she tries on so many clothes during photoshoots, she thinks of buying clothes as a chore.

“When I go shopping, I know what I need and I’ll just go into one or two stores. When I’m shopping, I feel like I’m working. I prefer to not even try things on. I’m just like, ‘that should look good’ and I’ll take it,” Barbara stated.

The Hungarian beauty lives in Brooklyn, New York, with former child star Dylan, and prefers simple styles and comfortable clothing.

“It doesn’t matter the brand. If it feels right on my body, I’ll take it. I usually go for something comfortable, casual but still sexy. The more simple it is, the sexier it looks,” she explained.

Despite walking for high-fashion houses on catwalks around the world, Palvin feels like an “outsider” in upscale luxury stores.

“New York is closer to my style than Paris. Paris can be too chic for me. New York has a little edginess, but still can be classy. I do love Chinatown and Brooklyn, like little stores. I don’t like to go to the rich area. I can’t do that. I feel like an outsider there,” she added.

Cardi B once spent $6,000 (£4,730) on a Givenchy suit in a bid to “get noticed” by designers.

The I Like It hitmaker spoke to fashionistas at the recent Room Service membership event at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles, hosted by Creative Jenius Report founder CJ South, where she was supported her stylist Kollin Carter.

While sipping on a strawberry margarita, Cardi candidly revealed how she started small and took baby steps at the beginning of her music career, and even spent her own money on her red carpet look for the BET Awards in 2017.

“For the BET Awards, the first time I went, my Givenchy suit cost about $5,000 to $6,000,” she said, before explaining that stylists should be advising their clients to spend money so they get recognised by big designers. “Little by little, they notice you. And you get noticed.”

Both Kollin and Cardi acknowledged that it took a while for the rapper to get accepted by big-name designers, and she urged stylists to tell their clients to attend every single fashion show they get invited to.

“It took us a while to get accepted and sometimes we used to be like, ‘Damn, when are we going to get invited to these shows? When are we gonna sit front row at these shows?'” the 26-year-old recalled. “And remember, you might get invited to a new designer’s show at fashion week. Don’t ever think, ‘Oh, but that’s so little. Well, who is that? I never heard of them.’ Attend. And make sure you dress nicely and bossed up.”

While Cardi has been dressed by the likes of Moschino’s Jeremy Scott, the former Love & Hip Hop: New York reality star laughed as she revealed no fashion houses would go near her unless she had style.

“You could be the hottest and they just don’t want you in their clothes because you just don’t got that style (sic). So it’s like you gotta prove to them that you got that style. You’ve got to keep on proving,” she smiled.
