Miley Cyrus made a surprise appearance on the catwalk during Marc Jacobs’ fashion show on Wednesday night.

The designer unveiled his latest fall/winter 2020 collection at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week, with the spectacle drawing in the likes of Sofia Coppola, Nicki Minaj, Yolanda Hadid, and Stephanie Seymour, and top models including Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Karlie Kloss, and Kaia Gerber.

But instead of joining the audience as she usually does, Cyrus chose to get in on the action partway through the presentation, where she modelled a black bralet, matching trousers, and carried a zebra print coat.

Taking to Instagram after the show, Cyrus posted a video showing her seriously strutting her stuff, and the clip quickly attracted over five million views and comments from her celebrity pals.

Hailey Bieber wrote, “YUP. STOMP QUEEN,” Kloss posted, “Best of both worlds,” and Georgia Fowler penned, “Incredible.” Naomi Campbell simply posted a string of fire emojis.

Cyrus, 27, is a longtime friend of Jacobs and previously collaborated with him in 2013 for a charity T-shirt line, which featured the slogan “Protect the Skin You’re In.”

She also appeared in the designer’s spring 2014 campaign, and they reunited to co-design a pink hoodie to raise funds for Planned Parenthood last year.

Jacobs has long been one of Cyrus’s go-to designers – she wore an outfit from his fall/winter 2013 collection to the Met Gala a few months after he showcased the line.

Marc Jacobs has celebrated the intersection of “chaos and form” with his fall/winter 2020 collection.

The designer unveiled his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week on Wednesday night, with the spectacle drawing in the likes of Naomi Campbell, Sofia Coppola, Nicki Minaj, Yolanda Hadid, and Stephanie Seymour.

To kick off the presentation, Karole Armitage, known as the “punk ballerina”, took to the stage to perform a show-stopping abstract dance.

“Our fall/winter 2020 collection celebrates the intersection of chaos and form, the rituals of getting dressed and the power of storytelling through movement as a gesture into possibility,” a brand representation wrote on Instagram. “Marc Jacobs celebrates the power of storytelling through the movements of legendary and renowned choreographer and dancer, Karole Armitage. Karole’s talent and genius is in her ability to dismiss the discipline of her craft by challenging conventional gestures. Her abrupt, fierce and sometimes violent articulations brings the cultural influences of today into conversation with a past New York I will forever love, not for longing of time passed but for moments that are timeless in reference.”

A troupe of dancers continued to perform in the background as the show began, with a model opening in a lemon-yellow coat and matching leggings. A series of similar numbers in pale pink and white followed, with Kaia Gerber wearing a pale yellow faux fur coat and matching hat.

However, Jacobs then dropped in a variety of eclectic looks, such as a spotted coat, red dress with white Peter Pan collar, a light blue pea coat, a red tartan jumpsuit, and a grey tweed suit.

Other highlights included a black sequin evening gown as worn by Bella Hadid, a white suit and red beret as modelled by Gigi Hadid, singer Miley Cyrus in a black bralet and trouser combination, as well as Karlie Kloss in a white gown with a high-neck top and long silk skirt.

Kirsten Dunst overhauled wardrobe after welcoming first child

Kirsten Dunst tossed out a lot of her pre-baby outfits following the birth of her first child.

The actress, who welcomed a son named Ennis with her actor fiance Jesse Plemons in May 2018, opened up about becoming a mother in the latest issue of PorterEdit, and explained that she is in no rush to return to her former figure. In fact, Kirsten got rid of any clothes that no longer fit her or she no longer wears and sold them online.

“I want to look nice for how I look now. There was a time when I was like, ‘S**t! I don’t fit into anything anymore.’ I just bought clothes in the size I am now,” she told the publication. “I don’t care. I sold all this stuff on (luxury consignment website) The RealReal. And there was some really good stuff in there!”

Kirsten went on to explain that she doesn’t feel any pressure to hit the gym or get abs. Instead, the former child star is much more interested in nabbing parts that challenge her acting skills.

“I have a very healthy perspective of being an actress. I haven’t worked out once since I had my baby. I’m not one of those people who says, ‘Ohhh I have to get my abs back.’ I feel like I’ve established myself as an actress,” the 37-year-old insisted. “I have a healthy amount of vanity that hasn’t tipped into something really destructive. I want to find parts where I don’t have to be that person, and I have plenty of role models. Look at Patricia Arquette.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Kirsten credited the influence of filmmaker Sofia Coppola as the reason why she has never been tempted to get aesthetic dental work to “fix” her slightly crooked smile.

“Later, when I was working on Spider-Man, people were recommending a dentist,” she recalled. “I would think, ‘Well, Sofia likes my teeth. She’s so natural, so chic and feminine, and she’s directing movies.’ If she thinks I’m pretty, I’m pretty.”

Naomi Campbell dazzles at Valentino’s spring 19 couture show

Naomi Campbell made a surprise appearance at Valentino’s spring 2019 couture show on Wednesday night (23Jan19).

Creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli presented his latest collection for the Italian fashion brand at the Place Vendome as part of Paris Couture Week, with the likes of Celine Dion, Courtney Love, Rami Malek, Olivia Palermo, and Sofia Coppola all in attendance.

The designer offered up a number of gorgeous outfits featuring vibrant florals and luxury lace, but it was Campbell’s turn at the end of the show which really made a statement, with the veteran British supermodel baring her torso and flashing her nipples in a dramatic black gown with sheer bodice and ruffled skirt.

“Closing @maisonvalentino’s Spring 2019 couture show. Congratulations on a beautiful evening,” she captioned a snap of herself at the event on her Instagram page.

Elsewhere in the presentation, Piccioli had a model walk the runway in a coral silk skirt and matching ruched top which was designed to evoke the shape of roses, with a number of brightly coloured ensembles following, such as a pair of orange trousers which were matched with a white feathered top and a rose-pink gown with long sleeves. Voluminous and ruffled sleeves featured heavily, as did simple yet tailored shirts and overcoats.

However, partway through the presentation, Piccioli injected a whole lot of spring-inspired fun, taking inspiration from flower-filled gardens. Highlights included oversized gowns made from pastel coloured fabrics featuring rose and blossom motifs, and a dramatic grey gown covered in yellow and green daisy prints.

Natalia Vodianova, 36, strutted her stuff in a large ballgown with an off-the-shoulder neckline, while 17-year-old Kaia Gerber showcased a bright green sequin dress with dramatic tiered skirt, and Liya Kebede rocked a hot pink gown with a high ruffled neckline.

“What an honour it was for me to be part of this incredible cast, thank you @pppiccioli for making me be a part of this monumental moment and how lucky am I that this was my first Valentino show with you! On pink cloud nine,” the 40-year-old wrote on her Instagram page.

Prada smashes ‘conservative cliches’ for spring 19

Prada has subverted clothing cliches for its spring/summer 2019 collection.

The Italian luxury fashion house, helmed by designer Miuccia Prada, unveiled its latest line at the Fondazione Prada complex as part of Milan Fashion Week on Thursday night (20Sep18) with celebrity guests including Spike Lee, Sofia Coppola, Poppy Delevingne, Madelaine Petsch and Katherine Langford.

Regarding the range, Miuccia told reporters at the venue that she was determined to subvert convention with each ensemble.

“I played the rules of classic, with all the conservative cliches you can have,” the 69-year-old said.

The show opened with a model wearing a black satin top with bow attached to the neckline, brown pleated shorts, a black headpiece dotted with silver spikes and pink sandals.

A parade of contrasting outfits followed, such as a red coat which was buttoned off centre, a bodysuit with cutout detailing that was worn with shorts and high white socks as well as a leotard with plunging neckline which was styled with a peach satin skirt and black knee-high tights.

Highlights included a pale pink silk top which was worn with patterned shorts and a black swing dress with fine straps that was matched with lace-up shoes and a shoulder bag.

As always, accessories were a major aspect of the presentation, with models carrying colourful leather bags and satchels or colour-blocked purses.

They also wore oversized headbands made from a variety of fabrics that were evocative of Tudor-style headpieces, while some models sported studded cuff bracelets on one arm.

And instead of introducing evening-wear towards the end of the presentation, Miuccia again rejected convention and instead concluded the show by having a model walk the runway in a white T-shirt which was worn with lime-green embellished shorts and complemented with a bright green handbag.

Milan Fashion Week continues on Friday morning with shoes from Tod’s, Blumarine and Sportmax.

Anna Sui put a streetwise spin on floral prints and feminine materials during her spring 2019 presentation.

The American designer tapped modelling royalty to walk the catwalk held at Spring Studios in New York City on Monday night (10Sep18), including sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, and 16-year-old Kaia Gerber. Models Naomi Campbell and Coco Rocha graced the front row, as well as father-daughter duo Francis Ford and Sofia Coppola.

Floral prints were toughened up thanks to a punky black and pink colour scheme, which was plastered onto a slouchy pyjama-style shirt and short set, as well as a silky Asian-infused jumpsuit and a loose floaty dress jazzed up with sequins. The pink and black gradually faded away and was replaced by a sea of blues and greens in nature-inspired patterns, while further down the catwalk Sui upped the femininity with pretty boho cover-ups and went back in time with ‘70s-inspired metallic brocade flared trousers, given an androgynous touch thanks to its pairing with a slouchy suit jacket.

It was the 66-year-old’s attention to accessories which gave the collection a throwback yet modern feel, as models were styled in ’90s bucket hats and patterned head scarves, as well as layers of beaded necklaces and bracelets. There were no traditional handbags in sight, only casual cross-body bags and fanny packs, while strappy sandals and slides in pink and red were the footwear of choice, all paired with dainty ankle socks in corresponding colours.

For those not wearing headgear, hair was piled on top of heads in rock ‘n’ roll twisted beehives, and lightly glossed pink lips, strong brows and subtly flushed cheeks were the stand out beauty statements of the show.

New York Fashion Week continues on Tuesday with Oscar de la Renta and Coach.

Chloe Grace Moretz turning her back on studio movies

Chloe Grace Moretz signed up for The Miseducation of Cameron Post as she was keen to break away from big studio movies.

Chloe stars as the title character in Desiree Akhavan’s new film, a big screen version of Emily M. Danforth’s novel of the same name about a teenage girl who is forced into a gay conversion therapy centre by her conservative guardians in ’90s America.

The movie took home the Grand Jury Prize in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year (18), with Chloe now explaining to Porter Edit why she signed on to the project.

“I got really caught up in being the girl who does the studio movies and I was like, ‘I’m not that girl,'” she sighed. “I started in Kick-Ass and Let Me In, movies that were not popular when they were being cast. I wanted to find that again and what that means to me, and the first movie that checked all the boxes was Cameron Post.”

Chloe added that her four brothers, two of whom are gay, were “super-excited” when she accepted the role.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post marks the 21-year-old’s first film release of the year, after Chloe decided to take some time out of Hollywood.

“I wanted to reconnect to my job and what I love about acting. I dropped out of some really big movies,” the star said. “I loved it. Just reading and writing and working and listening and watching. Just soaking up anything I could.”

The actress dropped out of Universal’s planned The Little Mermaid, along with director Sofia Coppola. Disney executives are also planning a retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale, with Lin-Manuel Miranda writing lyrics.

Marc Jacobs has unveiled a dramatic collection full of ’80s style references for fall/winter 2018.

The designer presented his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week on Wednesday night (14Feb18), with celebrities such as Cardi B, Lil’ Kim, Sofia Coppola and Bebe Rexha all perched on the front row.

Taking inspiration from the bold silhouettes designers such as Yves Saint Laurent and Emanuel Ungaro unveiled three decades ago, the show opened with model Ariel Nicholson Murtagh sporting a large crimson coat with oversize shoulders and matching scarf that was topped off with a sharp black hat.

Jacobs had a parade of similar coats follow, in violet, emerald green and mustard yellow, all of which were matched with leather trousers and black gloves.

There was also an eye-catching teal satin shirt with large bow detailing at the collar paired with dark yellow wide-leg trousers and brogues, as well as large knit sweaters, tops with balloon sleeves, a polka dot shirt tucked into high-waisted leggings, and jumpers with diagonal racing stripes.

Many looks evoked Grace Jones’ iconic style, with one model sporting a black high neck PVC trench coat which was accessorised with a faux fur stole, black hat and blue leather purse.

Winnie Harlow walked the runway in an oversize brown tweed suit with a gold flourish at the neckline, while Taylor Hill strutted her stuff in a blue and purple tartan skirt, blue satin shirt, and dark purple leather jacket.

Nearly all of the models donned the same black hat for the show, but Jacobs had hairstylist Guido Palau and colourist Josh Wood give nine of the women bold geometric haircuts with a strip of colour.

Closing the show with a bang, Jacobs offered up several items of eveningwear, including a black and green satin dress with bubble skirt and a strapless gown featuring blue floral print and dramatic black velvet detailing.
