Kendall Jenner And Lady Gaga Take The Marc Jacobs AW16 Catwalk By Storm

It was the last show of New York Fashion Week and Marc Jacobs did NOT fail to end the season with a bang. Never one to shy away from powerful imagery (we still can’t get over the Bang! perfume advert), the show was staged on a dramatically bleak, white circular catwalk.

In front of a crowd of revered fashion superstars, including Anna Wintour herself, Jacobs brought out powerful, gothic, Victorian creations - oh, and Lady Gaga.

Yup, look closer, that’s Gaga. Straying not far from her role as The Countess on American Horror Story, Gaga walked alongside Kendall Jenner in a voluminous horror meets old Hollywood outfit, pairing ladylike fur and a pussybow shirt with stompy metallic space boots. And can we talk about the makeup?!   [Image: Rex]

Gaga herself uploaded a photo of the painstaking skill and effort that went into creating those artfully set waves - a modern update of the 30′s finger wave.

The rest of the collection was equally impressive with plenty shades of grey and black, reflecting a more somber, haunting mood for the upcoming season.

There were plenty of rich textures and fabrics - think sequins, mixed with lace and feathers, mostly in oversized, voluminous shapes. Nothing was muted or minimalist, here’s a selection of our favourites.

And did you SEE the army of stylists surrounding Kendall Jenner backstage? We’re counting at least five people here - surprised Kendall even has room to breathe, no wonder she’s not looking very happy!

Alongside the dramatic set-waves were extravagantly lined eyes, with plenty of powder fallout around the eye and noir lips for a smoky, “night of the undead” look.

And the gothic mood wasn’t just on the catwalk either. Emily Ratajkowski showed up in a sweeping, barely-there gothic lace dress and Christina Ricci also channelled her inner Wednesday Adams. Very in keeping with the mood of the show!

Lady Gaga absolutely killed it pre-show too, in a sensational fishtail dress on the streets of New York. Move over catwalk models, there’s a new Super in town.
