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.

Hailey Bieber has dropped a major hint indicating she may be done with runway modelling.

The model launched her career in 2014 when she made her catwalk debut walking for Topshop, and since then, she has appeared in shows for the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Philipp Plein, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana, Prabal Gurung, and Jeremy Scott.

But in a recent post on her Instagram Stories, Hailey shared a photo of her strutting down the catwalk during the Zadig & Voltaire fall/winter 2018 show and criticised her arm placement.

“What I do know, is that ur arm truly should never swing this high when ur walking on a runway (sic),” she captioned the image, circling her arm in blue. “Hence why it is not, and will never be my thing again lol (laugh out loud).”

Hailey did not share any further comments on her possible career move. The last major runway show she appeared in was Versace’s pre-fall 2019 show held in New York City last December.

However, shortly before the blonde star wed popstar Justin Bieber in a courthouse ceremony in September, she shared in an interview with WWD that she is planning to be more selective about her modelling gigs in the future.

“I’ve tried to be really choosy with fashion week going forward, just because I want to have the time to spend being relaxed and being with family – and my fiance,” the 22-year-old commented.

In spite of her latest social media posts, it appears Hailey is still passionate about campaign modelling, and has recently landed gigs for brands such as Miu Miu, Max Mara, Levi’s, and Carolina Herrera.

Duckie Thot swears cocoa butter is the secret to soft skin

Duckie Thot is a big fan of using cocoa butter and swears it is the key to “glowy” skin.

The Australian model, who is of South Sudanese heritage, has quickly risen up the ranks of the fashion world since launching her career in 2013, having landed work for the likes of Yeezy, Fenty Beauty, Oscar de la Renta, Moschino, and L’Oreal.

Now, Duckie has shared some of her favourite beauty products, and noted Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Body Lotion is at the top of her list.

“After every single shower, I’ll sit there for a good 10 minutes and lather my whole body with cocoa butter,” she said in an interview with New York Magazine’s The Strategist. “It just stays on all day, and your skin looks so glowy. It’s not too thick. Sometimes oil gets on clothes, which is really annoying, but I love the cocoa butter – it just goes on super-nice.”

Duckie went on to explain that she is a big fan of Simple’s Cleansing Facial Wipes for removing make-up, and usually washes her face with Clarins’ Gentle Foaming Cleanser.

“It’s just so thick and creamy, and just a small pump gives you so much product. It’s really gentle on my skin, though I’d say it’s good for all skin types, honestly. It just makes your skin feel really great after you use it. I take it with me everywhere; I use it morning and night,” the 23-year-old said of the brand’s formula.

Elsewhere in the chat, Duckie shared that she can’t get enough of Apple’s AirPods, the Savage x Fenty Padded Eye Mask for when she is travelling, and more unusually, champions fibre supplements from Metamucil.

“I drink the powder with water in the morning; it’s a cleanser, an inside cleanser. I feel like it’s great to have with breakfast, and it just gets you going for the day. It helps me feel more active,” she praised.

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!”

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.

Jeremy Scott could soon be doing a Tom Ford and stepping behind the camera to direct a movie.

The Moschino head shared his filmmaking dreams in a chat with The Hollywood Reporter after unveiling a new line influenced by monster movies.

Asked if he had any ambitions to become a director after he worked closely with Universal on his horror-imbued line, he exclaimed: “I would love to! We are in Hollywood, aren’t we?”

Revealing the idea for his latest Moschino collection came about after he went on a private Universal Studios tour at the Hollywood theme park, Jeremy decided to pay homage to some of Universal’s most memorable monster movies, like Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man and Creature from the Black Lagoon. He also drew on films like King Kong, modern horror Scream, and ’80s classic The Shining.

Items from the 2020 men’s and women’s line include a Casper the Friendly Ghost T-shirt, jeans printed with Frankenstein stitches, a Dracula cape, a white tulle dress reminiscent of an Egyptian mummy’s bandages and a pleated white dress teamed with an oversized black gorilla hand which doubles as a cape.

“I love all these different types of horror in Hollywood cinema; I eat it all up!” Jeremy said, adding how the idea first came to him.

“I saw this idyllic, beautiful street (at Universal Studios) and it inspired me. I thought, ‘Something sinister’s going to happen here’ and I started designing the collection. And that’s when I started going around the Halloween theme. Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man and Creature from the Black Lagoon all originated here at Universal so I wanted to do an homage to them. A little spooky couture! And I thought about kids trick-or-treating. Some things are more sinister, some are more playful. That’s the thing about Halloween. Everything goes!”

Katy Perry’s custom Moschino hamburger outfit for the Met Galal after-party was Jeremy Scott’s wild idea.

The 34-year-old popstar headed to the prestigious annual fashion event wearing a crystal-covered chandelier dress with a matching headdress, also by Jeremy, and stunned onlookers as the light bulbs on the chandelier were turned on.

Later, for the Italian fashion house’s official after party, she surprised once more by wearing a custom burger suit that was covered in sparkles, with an off-the-shoulder lettuce minidress underneath.

Fittingly, the Roar hitmaker also sported burger sneakers from her own Katy Perry Collections label, and had the Munchie shoes jazzed up with extra bling by costume designer Erin Lareau.

Katy insisted that it was pure coincidence designer Jeremy had decided to dress her up in a fast food themed outfit, apparently unaware she had shoes to match.

“It was symmetry. It was the universe. I don’t think Jeremy had seen the shoes yet,” she told Footwear News. “He presented me with two ideas, and I said ‘Well, I love them both, and they both represent my personality.’ He said, ‘Great, because I was thinking one for the actual event and one for the after-party’.

“He just came up with both of those, and they were fab. We have a long-standing friendship – forever.”

The singer’s playful looks both fitted in with this year’s Met Gala theme, Camp: Notes on Fashion. The singer was one of many famous faces, including Bella Hadid, Gwen Stefani and Stella Maxwell, to be dressed by Moschino for the event, hosted by Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour.

Tracee Ellis Ross was transformed into a “piece of art” for her chic avant-garde look for the Met Gala last week.

The Black-ish star wore an understand black Moschino gown, with her look completed with an ornate gold picture frame around her face.

And while the theme for the annual fashion event was Camp: Notes on Fashion, Tracee’s stylist explained that they decided to go for a more low-key approach to the theme.

“We went camp in a really kind of cerebral, nuanced way. I feel like it’s a very layered thing, and you have to like, think about it when you see it,” Karla Welch told InStyle.com.

The stylist, who also dressed Sarah Paulson, Amber Valletta and Alessia Cara for the high fashion event, further revealed she wanted to show Tracee as a walking piece of art.

“We’re going more… a piece of art, to be honest,” she told the outlet. “It’s how we make ourselves art. For me, camp is a vessel for art, and we took that into consideration. Also, a woman is a piece of art, so there’s something there as well.”

Tracee later posted snaps from the red carpet of her rocking her unique look, and revealed that the inspiration for the picture frame was from American artist Lorraine O’Grady. Her Art Is movement captured images of people attending Harlem’s African American Day parade with framed faces.

“RECLAIMING THE NARRATIVE ~ black camp… thank you #lorraineogrady for existing and creating ‘art is’,” she wrote on Instagram.
