Model buds Jagger and Delevingne rock boyish make-overs for star-studded FROW
Model buds Cara Delevingne and Georgia May Jagger were the pair to watch at yesterday’s New York Fashion Week finale.
The edgy Marc Jacobs catwalk show featured models in over-sized, rich coloured clothing strutting their stuff on a grassy catwalk.
Delevingne and Jagger were given boyish makeovers with chopped blonde wigs and minimal makeup for the show.
Model friends Delevingne and Jagger were clearly impressed with their looks, as Jagger posted a shot of the girls before the big show.
Jagger took the ‘selfie’ of the pair as Delevingne treated fans to one of her typical funny faces.
A star-studded front row at the exclusive event included actresses Winona Ryder and Christina Ricci.
The presentation of his Spring/Summer 14 line didn't disappoint, with the catwalk festooned with cigarette butts, empty bottles of liquor and the mast of a ship. The theme appeared to be the world's end, with the clothes dark and mysterious.
While there was undoubtedly a gothic vibe to proceedings Marc also seemed to be inspired by street style, so there were black and navy sweatshirts with appliqué, boxy jackets with three-quarter sleeves and tassels and sequinned evening gowns with spider-lace sleeves snaking right to the wrist.
Lace was another big theme, but it was far away from the delicate vibe which might be expected. This was thick lace in black and darkest green, which was made into dresses and tops and looked surprisingly good with the athletic-look sandals Marc accessorised his collection with.
Francisco Costa celebrated his tenth year as Calvin Klein's creative director with an inspired collection drawing on, but not revising, the label's minimalist past. Monochrome was a big look but there were the pastels seen all over the New York catwalks too, with strapless dresses in cream and body-conscious offerings in palest pink.
There was an architectural feel to many of the pieces, not least the tiered black evening gown with thin tassels making up the rectangular chest panel which came out at the end of the show.
Ralph Lauren revisited the Mod era for his Spring/Summer 14 line yesterday, showing mini-dresses with long sleeves in black with white collars. There were also checked trench coats, flat caps and wide-leg trouser suits - all sticking to the monochrome palette.
Proceedings move to London today, with Bora Aksu opening the shows this morning.
