As a follow-up to last season's Devo-meets-Thierry Mugler collection, Jeremy Scott staged an elaborate fashion/cinema performance at the Tribeca Grand Hotel that could best be described as Steven Cojocaru-meets-Pierre Cardin.
The Beverly Hillsbased designer's presentation was a spoof on a Hollywood awards show, as Scott (in a Gucci tuxedo and bandana) greeted each model in the style of a cheesy red-carpet commentator. Asked what she'd like to see more of in Hollywood, Anouck Lepère, in a silver coat with a radiating ring collar, responded more Belgian movies, while Croatian model Natasha Vojnovic advocated "peace, no war!" Lisa Marie and Liz Goldwyn were among the celebrities who walked the red carpet and also appeared in Scotts movie, which premiered after the arrivals show and featured Asia Argento, China Chow, Monet Mazur and Tori Spelling.
What did the models wear? Glamour dresses with stencils reading "icon," "bombshell" and "goddess" and featuring the requisite sequins, marabou and lamé. New developments included denims with the designers face embroidered on the back pocket and Oscar statuettes on jacket sleeves, as well as custom lamé and leopard-print Adidas/Scott sneakers.
While designers like Imitation of Christ try to dissect fashion, Scott takes a literal, good-hearted and adoring approach. For him, it's all about looking fabulous, darling.
