Kendall Jenner Looks Unrecognizable in Marc Jacobs Show

Kendall JennerMakeup really can make all the difference - just as Kendall Jenner.

Sporting bleached brows and a short, brown wig, it was easy to miss the Keeping Up with the Kardashian star in the Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2014 show yesterday.

"I just recently turned 18, so this [Marc Jacobs show] is my big kick-off to start and grow my career. The New York fashion scene is crazy, madness, but I love the energy. I love everything about it - like the hair and makeup today, it’s incredible. I’ve never had my eyebrows bleached; I don’t even look like myself!" she told Into the Gloss.

Turning 18 also helped with the fact that she can now legally show a little more skin these days - which is exactly what she did on the Marc Jacobs runway, modeling a see-through v-neck top with cropped pants (NSFW photo after the jump).

Quote of the Day: Prabal Gurung on Runway Diversity

Prabal Gurung

"I always say, cute is cute. Whether you're white, Asian, black — if you're cute, you're cute. I see no discrimination and I've never been like that. When I use a black model it's not because I want to make a statement. It's because I think they're beautiful... It's everyone' responsibility, whether it's the designer, stylists, writers, editors, to understand that beauty is universal. Come on — it's 2014."

- Nepalese-American designer Prabal Gurung addresses his feelings on diversity among models on the runways at this year's New York Fashion Week.

Taylor Swift kicked off the show held in New York City with her hit "I Knew You Were Trouble," while wearing a Union Jack print mini-dress accompanied with a matching train and top hat, which were splattered with paint.

Items Du Jour: Ralph Lauren Casts Plus-Size Model, Rashida Flaunts It

George Michael and Kate Moss+ After having caused previous controversy with their Photoshop-happy campaigns, Ralph Lauren has hired plus-size model Robyn Lawley for their upcoming campaign. The 23 year-old size 8 model has previously been published in Vogue Italia and French Elle.

+ George Michael and Kate Moss prove that they're besties on next month's French Vogue cover, which looks more like a paparazzi shot than a major fashion publication's cover.

+ Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones leaves the laughs at home for her Flaunt photo shoot, in which she trades her girl-next-door image for that of a Victoria's Secret model.

+ What do you do if you're Adele and a major label like Burberry asks you to be the face of their next campaign, yet you can't wear any of their clothes? Easy! You demand that they create some plus-size styles or the deal is a no go.

Dolce & Gabbana’s Real Models

Dolce & GabbanaDolce & Gabbana used "real men" in their Milan Fashion Week show.

The fashion house decided against using models on the catwalk, instead sending 73 Sicilian men and boys aged between 12 and 43 - with occupations including student, house painter, barber, and waiter - down the runway accompanied by a live band in traditional costume.

Explaining the unusual showcase of the collection - which was largely monochrome linen, silk, light wool and chiffon - Steffano Gabbana said, "We wanted to put our clothes on real men because fashion should be for real people."

The show's finale saw all 73 men don dark suits and white jackets which were each slightly different to one another.

Elsewhere, Jil Sander made her return to her eponymous label, with her first collection in eight years showing an update to her signature minimalist style with colour and more modern cuts.

Chloe Sevigny Hates Fashion Shows

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Shows,

Chloe SevignyChloe Sevigny hates going to fashion shows.

The Gummo actress doesn't like to attend high fashion events because she is not comfortable being around people she deems to be "popular kids."

"I don't enjoy going to fashion shows. It's very high school, it's very 'the most popular kids in the front row,' and everybody's checking everybody else out, and you have to do all this press and get your picture taken. It's not fun for me - it's work."

Stylish Chloe claims she goes to shows in order to support her friends, or if she is "getting paid." Ironically Chloe, 37, initially made her name through her unique sense of style. "My style helps me make a lot of money, so it's kind of important. It's kind of a hobby. I like getting dressed, I like putting myself together. I admire people who put a little effort into their style. But as far as my face in the industry, it has been pretty lucrative for me. I think that those companies are interested in me because I don't work with a stylist - it's me, myself, it's my personal style. They can sense that," she added.


Versace to Return to Couture Catwalk

VersaceVersace is returning to the couture catwalk.

The Italian fashion house will stage two shows at Paris' Ritz Hotel in July and the venue choice has always held a special place in Donatella Versace's heart. The hotel was the site of her brother Gianni's last runway show in 1997 before his death, as well as many other Atelier Versace shows until the line was suspended in 2004. The hotel will close on July 31 for extensive renovation following the show on July 1, and Donatella is pleased she can show there before it shuts.

"It is with tremendous emotion that I return to the Ritz where I shared so many special moments with my brother. The closing of the Ritz Paris for two years represents the end of an era but also the beginning of a new one, so to be able to show Atelier Versace there one last time will be a memorable milestone," she told WWD.

The label returned to the schedule last season to show its Spring/Summer 2012 collection via a presentation.
