Miley Cyrus and Christina Ricci mingled with a fashionable crowd when they attended the Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 show yesterday. Marc's show taking place at the end of Fashion Week wasn't intentional — it was originally scheduled for Monday, but was moved due to delivery delays caused by snowstorm Nemo. Both Miley and Christina showed off their midriffs in belly-baring Marc Jacobs ensembles. Meanwhile, Marc Jacobs's muse Sofia Coppola showed her support for her longtime friend when she dropped by in one of his striped t-shirts. Fashion Week fixture Rachel Zoe also made an appearance in a dramatic blue and white striped frock.
Miley Cyrus kept herself busy during New York Fashion Week, visiting shows for Marchesa and Rachel Zoe as well as hosting a party for Cosmopolitan magazine. Miley isn't just at the shows to make appearances — she might be checking out gowns for her upcoming wedding to Liam Hemsworth. Miley said that Marchesa is "definitely" a possibility for her wedding dress, but noted that she has "so many options" at this point.
Marc Jacobs ended New York Fall 2013 Fashion Week in signature style — sending the models out into a glowing sepia-lit runway two minutes before his show was set to begin. As photographers scrambled to shoot without flashes, models appeared with only black and white tones visible to the naked eye. After one quick lap of the full collection, the lighting shifted and the models came back out for a second viewing — this time with the colors totally visible. While fur suits might not be on everyone's shopping list for Fall, the designer's camel double-breasted coat, metallic-shot shift dresses, chunky cable knits, and swirling second-skin gilded evening dresses are sure to be a major hit at retail. As for the designer, he continues delighting us with new ideas, intriguing visuals and a rich aesthetic that grows every season.
Marc Jacobs has come to be known as the ultimate showman in NYC fashion, and Fall 2013 upheld his reputation to a T. The capacity crowd entered to a glowing yellow orb at the end of the circular runway — notable for providing sepia light that rendered the chic showgoers in sepia-tinged black and white (so much for those wild colors for the street-style photographers!). The models did a full, brisk lap around the runway to start the show, all under the sepia light. After the last model exited the runway, the lighting shifted and the models came back out to be seen for the lovely, soft color palette that Jacobs picked for the season — soft moss green, pale mauve, camel, greiges. The line was filled with the very wearable — cable-knit sweaters, double-breasted coats, shirtdresses — to the very unwearable — see the model in just hot pants and gloves. Evening was particularly strong with bias-cut gowns with open backs mixed in with liquid metallic gowns that are begging to be flown out to Hollywood to the Oscars. The designer, clad in pajamas for his finale walk, created a thrilling presentation and a collection that we'll be thrilled to see in stores.
Marc Jacobs has been known to pull out all stops for his runway beauty, and with custom-cut wigs — and a huge nail polish surprise — he didn't disappoint for Fall 2013. Lead stylist Guido (for Redken) turned every model into a brunette, cutting each girl's hair into a punk pixie backstage. And makeup artist François Nars put his focus on a dark eye makeup look that featured just a touch of shine.
The look: A greasy smoky eye, brunette punk wigs, and red nails.
The inspiration: Rocker girls like Joan Jett and Marianne Faithfull.
Overheard backstage: Marc Jacobs is releasing a new nail polish line this Fall.
Marc Jacobs does fashion and fragrance, and now he's adding a nail polish to his repertoire. The Marc Jacobs Enamored line won't hit stores until Fall, but two new shades were revealed backstage this evening: a deep red shade called Jezebel, and what will likely be the star product in the line, Shiny. The top coat was inspired by a high-shine coffee table Jacobs has at home; it was formulated to give the appearance of 30 coats with just one swipe. Sadly, you'll have to wait until next season to get your hands on a bottle of this designer lacquer, where it will be available at Sephora.
Over the years, Marc Jacobs's runway beauty looks have ranged from ultrafeminine to modernly minimalist to beautifully bare. He's experimented with white makeup, space-age hair accessories, and teased updos, but one thing remains the same: his models' hair and makeup always makes an unforgettable statement. In honor of his much-anticipated show tonight, take a look back at the best looks he's sent down the runway.
With nods to '70s silhouettes, Marc Jacobs lit up Lincoln Center tonight with his Fall '13 Marc by Marc Jacobs collection. True to form, you'll find new iterations of the designer's all-over prints — brilliant hues dotting dresses and checks taking over smart blazers. Altogether, he crafts a cool balance between a lineup of statement prints and more understated, menswear-inspired suiting, which means there's something for just about everyone in this playful set. Watch on for every look straight from the catwalk.
