From Emily Ratajkowski to Christy Turlington, here's who attended the fashion designer's nuptials.From Harper's BAZAAR
The first lady and former model isn't landing any magazine covers, and her fans, including actor James Woods, aren't pleased.
The fashion designer Marc Jacobs planned a surprise proposal to Char Defrancesco at the casual chain restaurant featuring dancers getting down to Prince's "Kiss."
Actress Amber Tamblyn: "Our movement is big. And a black dress is just the beginning of the darkness that will be drained from every industry across the country by the time we’re done. That’s a promise.”
Melania Trump’s casual shirt was a 360-degree departure from how she began the weekend, wearing an $1,880 green Missoni midi-dress and Manolo Blahnik orange snakeskin stilettos.
Marc Jacobs has made a statement with his latest ad. The photo is a waist-down shot of two models with long legs — and one has the skin condition vitiligo.
In stark contrast to Marc Jacobs’s usual magnificent spectacles during fashion week, there was no elaborate stage, production, or cinematic music for his Fall/Winter 2017 show on Thursday. But that’s not to say it wasn’t still a success.He staged his show at the grand Park Avenue Armory, built in 1880, on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. For anyone familiar with the space (or not), it’s a gigantic former armory that possesses very little natural light, with wooden floors and a ceiling at least 20 feet high.For this show, there were only two rows of seating, for an intimate feel. One row was placed on each side of the venue to create a narrow, pseudo runway between the guests, who sat on collapsible metal chairs.A few celebrity guests attended the show, including Frances Bean Cobain (the face of Marc Jacobs’s Spring 2017 campaign), Katy Perry, Zosia Mamet, Lil Kim, Mandy Moore, Lottie Moss, and Amanda Peet.And all of fashion’s “it” girls walked the show, including Kendall Jenner, Jamie Bochert, Binx Walton, Lexi Boling, and Hanne Gaby Odiele. In a refreshing change from some designers, nearly half of Marc Jacobs’s cast were models of color (as we would hope considering the hip-hop theme), both famous and fresh-faced, such as Alek Wek, Winnie Harlow, and Adwoa Aboah.Jacobs’s minimalistic show approach was a big surprise to guests, as many didn’t even realize when the show started. Chatter amongst the crowd echoed throughout the armory and continued until at least three or four models passed, and guests finally realized the show had begun. But to the guests’ credit, there were none of the usual cues that the show had started — no music, change in lighting, etc. The only sound that could be heard was the soft creaking from the wooden floors as the models walked over them.The collection was a clear-cut homage to New York’s street culture and hip-hop community. The palette of camel, burgundy, beige, tweed, and leopard was used throughout the collection, imparting a ’70s/’80s feel. A plethora of gold was everywhere. Gold dresses, skirts, blouses, and jewelry (large, chunky gold chain necklaces, key-shaped earrings, and bangles) were all present.Highlights from the collection included the myriad sequin tops, fringe beaded dresses, argyle sweaters, baggy trousers, tracksuits, corduroy jackets, platform boots, backward baseball caps, and cloche hats that in this context brought to mind the Kangol bucket hats worn by LL Cool J and other B-boys and girls in the ’80s. In addition to old-school hip-hop, some looks reminded us heavily of the style seen on Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard on Empire.Interestingly, the models at Marc didn’t take the usual path onto the runway and then backstage. Instead, they walked through the armory, straight out the front door, and down the steps, where photographers were staged to take runway photos.The models then proceeded to sit down in an orderly fashion on the same metal chairs as the guests inside — which were set up outside the armory. It was an interesting picture, with the Marc Jacobs models all sitting in their hip-hop gear against the backdrop of the New York City streets and skyline as the honking noise from nearby cars and cabs permeated the air.For Jacobs the stripped-down nature of the show, cutting out all the glitz and glamour of his past, was entirely deliberate. As he stated in a recent interview with WWD about why designers have shows in the first place, “Whether that means a very elaborate set or whether that’s a refusal to do a set or whether that’s no music — all are concepts or choices, and they have aesthetics and [result from] decisions. Everything is considered. It all goes into the viewer’s experience.”Make what you will of the collection, but Jacobs came into it with a clear-cut idea, message, and experience he wanted his viewers to have. I would say he succeeded in his quest.Click through the gallery above to see all the highlights from Jacobs’s most understated fashion show — perhaps ever.Follow Yahoo Style on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
Kaia Gerber, the genetically blessed daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford and former model turned restaurateur Rande Gerber, celebrated being the face of Marc Jacobs Beauty with a party in her honor during New York Fashion Week. The teenager stunned at the event, but she wasn’t the only celebrity offspring heating up Fashion Week.
[Photo: Instagram/marcjacobs] Another season, another controversy. Marc Jacobs’s SS17 show on the last day of NYFW sparked angry comments after giving white models fake dreadlocks. Hairstylist Guido Palau denied the cultural appropriation link, telling People that Rasta culture wasn’t an influence: “I don’t really think about that. I take inspiration from every culture.
Just when you thought there was no part of the ’90s left to repackage for a new generation, along comes Marc Jacobs with a sublime Lady Miss Kier meets Ani DiFranco (especially circa her August 1997 Spin magazine cover) collection. While most of the population in the ’90s was layering thermal leggings under ripped jeans and proudly sporting their flannel, another chunk was reliving the ’70s, with bell bottoms, striped socks, and colorful patches.Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom was decorated with what looked like a million hanging tiny lightbulbs, resembling a starry night, and once that house music started blaring through the speakers and out stepped the first model, with an insane mass of (fake, possibly maybe #problematic) pastel dreadlocks atop her head, a heavily embellished Victorian-inspired silver jacket, satin hot pants and — continuing the height fetish of last season — über-high platform Mary Janes/boots that buckled all the way to the calf, well, it was obvious that last season’s somber mood was no longer in play. So Marc was clearly in a playful mood, and the number of places he took us throughout the 53 looks was astounding. There was a bit of the Japanese Lolita look, but it was more of a throwback to the then hard-to-find FRUiTS street-style looks than a nod to their modern counterparts. Babydoll dresses in lace, sequins, heavy taffeta, and cotton florals also had a slight kinderwhore vibe without it being too obvious. There were silver leather jackets and trousers, all with pin-thin proportions, meant to hug the body like a second skin. Shiny pastel satin made into hot pants, maxi coats, and bomber jackers would’ve made Cher Horowitz weak at the knees.But what all this melange of influences and inspirations had in common was the fact that together it captured the essence of that other time Marc reigned supreme, the early 2000s, when he was the golden boy of fashion and had first launched his (now defunct and sorely missed) Marc by Marc Jacobs collection, as well as being the newly appointed creative director of Louis Vuitton. Yes, we had seen the satin hot pants before, in his Marc Spring 2004 collection, in which models wore with metallic knee-high boots. The patchwork suede pieces are an ode to the iconic Louis Vuitton Spring 2002 collection, which also featured the signature Vuitton monogrammed bags, decorated with appliqués of woodland creatures by the artist Julie Verhoeven. Verhoeven returned this season, and this time her patches covered striped sweatshirts (that also brought to mind that ONE winter when Gap did really amazing striped sweaters that everyone in fashion still remembers, you know the ones), as well as boots and, of course, backpacks.Only a few designers can get away with being this self-referential, and Marc has certainly earned the right. As such, this really seemed like a collection of his favorite things, but also a bit of an ode to the youthful spirit of Marc by Marc. We saw it in the Army green cotton jackets with big black buttons, in the striped socks worn thigh-high, in the satin bomber jackets, the skinny jeans with kooky patchworks, the florals, the stripes, the fur trims, the oversize green and orange long-sleeve polo shirt with contrasting white collar, the hot pants hot pants hot pants!The combination of wild and demure, the fact that when this collection hits the stores the tomboys can shop next to the drag queens, next to the ladies who lunch. … Fashion is supposed to be fun, and it’s about escapism, and when watching the news becomes more and more depressing with each passing day, who doesn’t want to throw on a pair of leather boots with tube-sock trompe l’oeil details and dance around the house? Groove is in the heart, baby!Yahoo Style is live from #NYFW! Keep it here for your front row view of the best looks and buzziest moments of New York Fashion Week.
Susan Sarandon’s cleavage has got people in a tizzy again. It’s been five months since her flash-fleshing appearance at the SAG Awards nearly broke the Internet and now the 69-year-old is flaunting her famous curves once again as she front’s (geddit?) a major ad campaign for Marc Jacobs. The designer has been busy Instagramming the stars appearing in his Autumn/Winter 2016 campaign, which includes Kendall Jenner, Cara Delavingne and Missy Elliott.
“From the moment I heard “The Rain” back in 1997, I was entranced by the genius rhythms and brilliant rhymes of Missy Elliott. Missy’s music has kept me and my design team happily energized through countless weekdays, weeknights, and weekends during those long hours of sketching, fitting, styling, and doing looks,” Marc Jacobs said.
Front row A-listers at Marc Jacobs’ Resort ’17 show in New York witnessed two models slip on the same spot on the runway. The renowned fashion label was live streaming their show on their Facebook page, when the world caught sight of one model slip and fall flat on her behind. Unfortunately for the models, the front-row guests including US Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris Carine Roitfeld witnessed the girls take a tumble.
It was the last show of New York Fashion Week and Marc Jacobs did NOT fail to end the season with a bang. Kendall seemed to resemble the Black Swan as she sashayed down the runway. Lady Gaga looked virtually unrecognisable in her ensemble.
Ziggy Stardust, is that you? It was announced early this month that Gaga would perform a tribute to David Bowie at this year’s Grammy Awards—but it seems that she’s chosen to extend her homage to him well beyond the stage. Of all the artists making music today, Lady Gaga may be the one whose career has been most influenced by Bowie.
Bit young to inspire a lipstick, isn’t she? Princess Charlotte may of not yet reached her first birthday, but she’s already proved to be something of an influential figure. The “Charlotte” lipstick is a hot pink shade, inspired by an English rose.
Marc Jacobs has always been synonymous with cool, and his ad campaigns have reflected this. Whether they feature models or his cool artist/actor/whatever friends they always had a way of: A) making you immediately want all the clothes, and B: making you want to be BFFs with whomever is featured. Iconic photographer Juergen Teller shot all of Jacobs’ campaigns up until 2014, when he refused to photograph Miley Cyrus. His inimitable, signature washed-out look and tongue-in-cheek attitude made the world of Marc Jacobs seem like the only world worth living in. Just like last season, the designer has recently been revealing his new Spring 2016 campaign on his personal Instagram. The theme revolves around “Americana” and all the amazing and inspiring people that he has met throughout the years. Whether it’s two men in an embrace (a nod to the legalization of same-sex marriages), new friend director Lana Wachowski, performer Bette Middler or comedian Sandra Bernhart, these are the people that Jacobs finds interesting and by virtue the world is gonna take notice too. This time his merry band of pals was captured by the incomparable David Sims and styled by his longtime collaborator Katie Grand. We thought it would be a perfect time not only celebrate the new members of the Marc Jacobs campaign family, but also all the luminaries that have appeared in his ads for the past two decades.
As Kendall Jenner’s revealed as the new face of Mango, we take a look back at the high-profile campaigns she’s bagged in the last few years, cementing her status as a successful model. Which campaign was your favourite? Tweet us at @YahooStyleUK.
PAPER magazine is all about pushing boundaries – remember Kim Kardashian’s infamous nude shoot, which helped her break the Internet? The publication has once again shocked its readers by publishing a cover featuring actress Chloë Sevigny soaked in blood. The publication has also released three alternative covers, starring Lucy Hale, Paris Hilton and Marc Jacobs’ dog Neville.
Sienna Miller knows a lot about style. After all, she co-founded high-fashion success story Twenty8Twelve with her sister Savannah when she was just 25. The Marc Jacobs number featured lace panels and a one-shoulder design.
This weekend at the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2016 show in Milan, models walked down the runway taking selfies with the attendees. “Be part of this unique fashion moment!” the announcement over the runway read. From high fashion to Hollywood, selfies are longer just for tweens and Kardashians. With all that picture taking and sharing, cosmetics companies have scrambled to make HD-quality products to keep up with the unforgivingly clear camera technology. These days, selfie-enhancing beauty products have replaced their HD-quality predecessors. You’re not worrying about how clear your skin looks — you’re also worried about the luminosity, the external lights, and of course, the #likesforlikes. Kylie Jenner’s makeup artist, Ariel Tejada, who she discovered on Instagram, tells Yahoo Beauty that you need to start with great skin for a perfect selfie beauty look. “All the women I work with have amazing skin already,” he says. But even if you’re not a household name with 37 million Instagram followers and a livestream dedicated to yourself, you can still reap the benefits of selfie makeup. CoverGirl, in fact, recently told the New York Times that the brand uses iPhones to test foundation finishes.“To take a proper selfie, you want to diffuse the flash of the light or the light around you in order to put your best face forward,” Jerrod Blandino, co-founder and CEO of Too Faced Cosmetics tells Yahoo Beauty. The youthful niche brand launched a palette of Selfie Powders ($36) this year, which comes in three different shades that act as “filters.” He recommends looking for products that have light refracting and fracturing properities because they give a blurring effect, like a filter. And you don’t have to worry about wasting your selfie-specific makeup on days when you’re feeling especially self-promotional. “In most office buildings you are under synthetic lights,” Blandino notes. It turns out using makeup that refracts the light from your florescent bulbs on the ceiling is flattering in person too.Celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta, who credits Instagram for helping him promote his work with celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Shay Mitchell (both noted selfie aficionados), also advises finding natural sunlight to directly hit your face when you’re taking selfies. “Try finding a window and standing directly in front of it,” he advises. “The wall colors around the windows also play a big factor in getting the perfect selfie. I personally look for white walls because I feel like when other colors reflect on makeup it makes it look complete different from what I intended.”If you’re ready to take the perfect selfie, check out these 17 products that will enhance your shot:Related:How to Take a Selfie According to ‘The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’Filter-Mimicking Makeup for a Selfie-Ready Look10-Must Have Beauty Products for the Selfie Obsessed
