In previous years, celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Elle Fanning and Kylie Jenner have graced the catwalks of some of the industry’s biggest designers, and for autumn/winter 2019, even more stars were subbed in for models. At New York Fashion Week, we saw actors including Gwendoline Christie from Game of Thrones, Laverne Cox from Orange is the New Black, and Greta Lee from Netflix’s Russian Doll make an appearance on the runway. Elsewhere, supermodel Christy Turlington made a surprise appearance at Marc Jacobs, closing the show in a voluminous black taffeta gown.
From Rose McGowan's Vivienne Westwood protest to Gwendoline Christie in rainbow tulle, all the AW19 celebrity catwalk highlights.
On Sunday Harper's mother Victoria Beckham unveiled her sleek and oh so chic AW19 collection to celebrities and the fashion set in the hallways of the Tate Britain. In classic Beckham style the former Spice Girl’s family, including husband David Beckham, came out to support her along with editor-in-chief of US Vogue, Anna Wintour. Beckham jokingly tried the look out for himself but said he "couldn't compete".
If day one was all about bringing activism and eccentricity to the catwalk, day two will be defined by its homage to wearable clothing. There has been a notable shift away from this, though, particularly among British designers. On day two of LFW, it was all about comfort and practicality.
Since 2015, Molly Goddard has been the fashion world’s best kept secret. Unless you frequent the shows, devour the pages of style monthlies or scroll through Net-a-Porter on a daily basis (who, me?), you likely haven’t been familiar with the brand. Despite her roaring catwalk success, the London designer and her capacious fluoro tulle has remained largely an industry obsession.
Molly Goddard's reputation just keeps on growing. After taking home the accolade for Emerging Designer at the 2016 Fashion Awards, the British designer has held two incredibly successful London Fashion Week shows, the latter starring top models Edie Campbell and Erin O'Connor, and seen her designs worn by global superstar Rihanna.
