From Fendace to The Simpsons, the 11 Most Viral Moments of SS22

From Fendace to The Simpsons, the 11 Most Viral Moments of SS22

A supermodel moment is always guaranteed to send social media into meltdown during fashion month, but Kate Moss herself couldn’t compete with Marge Simpson in a Balenciaga ballgown this season. Moss’s Fendace cameo and Springfield’s PFW takeover were just two of the memorable highlights from the spring/summer 2022 presentations. Read on for your Vogue recap from the shows.

1. Everything about Fendace
Fashion’s fabulous switch-up – which saw Donatella Versace and Kim Jones swap roles to create two uniquely brilliant, logo-heavy collections inspired by their friendship – was a supermodel-filled extravaganza that even Elizabeth Hurley – the original Versace safety-pin queen – couldn’t miss. Watching Kate Moss dance with Shalom Harlow and Amber Valletta in the final line-up was, to borrow Amanda Harlech’s word, “hallucinatory”. History was made, while both houses flexed their cultural relevance and social currency.

2. Dua Lipa opening and closing Versace
As rumors circulated about Donatella Versace’s Fendace power move, the glamazon queen pulled out all the stops for her own Versace spring/summer 2022 show. Campaign face Dua Lipa opened and closed the show wearing a safety-pin punctuated look and sparkly pink party co-ords that deserve a spot in her tour wardrobe.

3. The Simpsons’ starring turns at Balenciaga
The biggest surprise of Paris Fashion Week was – d’oh! – Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie moonlighting as models in the Simpsons’ takeover of Balenciaga. It was a perfect, playful satire of the industry’s pomp and circumstance and totally joyous to watch. Of course, that was only part of Demna Gvasalia’s hilarious swipe at pop culture – the fake red carpet beforehand was equally thought-provoking. If Balenciaga can pull off such a coup again, we’ll eat our shorts.

4. Maximilian’s unexpectedly spiky finale
Newcomer Maxmilian Davis’s seductive approach to womenswear has made him a breakout LFW star. His first physical runway show did not disappoint. Pictures of the final look, a spiky wearable art piece, flooded Instagram following the Fashion East showcase, where it was met with all of the superlatives and emojis. Get yourself some “pose-wear” (as he described it) immediately.

5. Olivier Rousteing’s supermodel-filled Balmain birthday
For his 10-year anniversary at Balmain, Olivier Rousteing brought out the big guns and delivered a star-studded extravaganza for an audience of 6,000. Not only did Beyoncé provide an audio tribute recounting the designer’s achievements, the line-up of supermodels – Naomi Campbell, Carla Bruni, Milla Jovovich, Karen Elson, Lara Stone, Natasha Poly, and Natalia Vodianova – brought the house down.

6. Rejina Pyo’s diving board spectacular
For her first physical show since the pandemic began, Rejina Pyo took us to the London Aquatics Centre, where divers from Team GB (sporting the designer’s color-pop swimwear) gave a spectacular acrobatic display off boards ranging from three meters to 10 meters high. The performance, and the collection as a whole, was an ode to freedom – and provided the much-needed lift we all need right now.

7. Cardi B’s street style
Leave it to music’s most famous to dial up the drama for the street-style paparazzo. While everyone else doubled down on back-to-school tailoring, the rapper modeled extravagant, bijoux-laden Schiaparelli, sculptural new-season Balenciaga and major color-block Richard Quinn. We like it like that.

8. Gigi Hadid’s quietly confident runway domination
In the same month she planned a first birthday party for daughter Khai, Gigi Hadid returned to modeling with a bang for spring/summer 2022, tallying up countless appearances in New York and Milan. From Moschino to Versace and Fendace, she showed model newcomers how it’s done while reuniting with her fashion family for a fabulous month-long love-in. Now, it’s time for a well-deserved break.

9. Marni redefines the show experience
With a knack for bringing together the creative community, designer Francesco Risso celebrated the physicality of being in a show space again by merging the runway and its audience into one joyful fashion happening. Four hundred guests were fitted in bespoke Marni looks, to instill a sense of unity before the event had even begun. “It’s not so much about the spectacle, it’s more about bringing everyone into the dialogue,” Risso told Vogue.

10. Double the fun: Prada’s dual runways in Milan and Shanghai
Co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons showed their spring/summer 2022 collection simultaneously in Milan and Shanghai. The impressive spectacle saw models in each country walk the runways wearing the same look at exactly the same time. It wasn’t just a success in terms of show production, it reflected a world that is ever more globally conscious.

11. Chanel girls flicking their hair back and forth
Virginie Viard’s Chanel spring/summer 2022 show was a hair-swishingly sassy ode to the ’90s, replete with a paparazzi pit for models to perform for along the runway. On the final day of a pretty monumental season, nothing looked as good as those pearl and chain-laden girls giving good camera angles. Watch the hair flick videos to put an instant spring in your step.

“Please join me for an intimate creative experience,” read Donatella Versace’s invitation to the fashion pack on the closing day of the Milan spring/summer 2022 shows. The blockbuster production that unfolded on Sunday evening was by no means “intimate” when you consider the scores of fashion fans tuning in across the globe, but creativity between two of the biggest luxury houses in the world certainly abounded. Believe the hype – Fendace has landed. Just don’t call it a Fendi X Versace collaboration.

What unfolded was a fabulous switch-up, which saw Donatella Versace and Kim Jones swap roles to create two uniquely brilliant, logo-heavy collections inspired by their friendship and the cultural relevance of the two heavyweight brands they are at the helms of. First up, Jones, the king of transfusing streetwear and subcultural style through a luxury lens, put his mark on Versace with a little help from Kristen McMenamy, Paloma Elsesser, Lila Grace Moss, Karen Elson, Kate Moss, and Amber Valletta.

Then, Mona Tougaard, Gigi Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, and Naomi Campbell brought to life the queen of no-holds-barred glamour Donatella’s Fendi vision, as Drake, Future, and Young Thug blasted out their latest song with intermittent “Ciao! Donatella!” broadcasts across the airwaves. It was to borrow the words of Dua Lipa, who opened the Versace spring/summer 2022 show on Friday and sat front row at the special showcase.

Even more sizzling? Elizabeth Hurley, who sat front row with her son Damian, Iris Law, and Winnie Harlow. The original Versace girl – who put the brand’s now-iconic safety-pin embellishment on the map at the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral more than 25 years ago – demonstrated the definition of smoldering, while Damian did his own version of Blue Steeling for the cameras.

It was a glitzy family affair from start to finish and reflective of the spirit of collaboration currently in the air. While Gucci’s “hacking” of Balenciaga will go down in history and Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons’s co-design partnership breaks new ground, no one can quite dial up the drama like Donatella and Kim. Brava.

The Most Viral Fashion Moments of the Summer So Far

The Most Viral Fashion Moments of the Summer So Far

From Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid returning to the runway at Jacquemus to Balenciaga breaking the internet, and Pyer Moss’s debut at haute couture week — here’s your recap of this summer’s highlights.

It’s official: summer is here (for the northern hemisphere at least), and in fashion, there’s been no shortage of fiery hot moments. If anything, it appears as though everyone has stepped up their game on the sensational and experiential front, be it virtual or in real life. 
From Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid returning to the runway at Jacquemus to Balenciaga’s mesmerising haute couture show that broke the internet and Pyer Moss’s history-making debut on the FHCM calendar, which celebrated Black invention — this summer was full of explosive, creative brilliance and the kind of joyous spectacles that we’re all in dire need of. 
In case you missed any, here are the biggest fashion moments you need to know from this summer, so far. 
1. Dior Men artistic director Kim Jones collaborated with rapper Travis Scott on a sublime collection

With a knack for collaborations that are bang on the zeitgeist, Kim Jones joined forces with gen-Z idol Travis Scott for SS22. Inspired by Scott’s personal style (clock the Cactus Jack motif from the rapper’s self-founded record label across Dior pieces) and the maison’s signature house codes, expect to see modern-day icons across the globe wearing these looks in the coming months.
2. Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid returned to the runway for a star-studded Jacquemus show

For his first real-life spectacle since the start of the pandemic, French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus called upon his supermodel friends to walk his runway show — titled La Montagne — in a film studio on the outskirts of Paris. Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Adut Akech, Mona Tougaard and Jill Kortleve, among others, wore his skin-baring, see-now-buy-now looks inspired by skiwear and lingerie.
3. Marc Jacobs staged a triumphant comeback in New York

Pre-pandemic, Marc Jacobs’ shows were consistently a New York Fashion Week highlight, and so after a season absent from the official calendar, his off-schedule return marked a pivotal fashion moment. The result? A colourful and voluminous ode to happiness, inspiration and creativity. And, of course, a cast of new-gen supers such as Gigi Hadid, Kaia Gerber and Imaan Hammam, as well as a cameo from Miley Cyrus. 
4. Supermodel Karen Elson starred in the gloriously uplifting Lightning Strikes: The Moschino Musical

For Moschino’s Resort 2022 and menswear SS22, creative director Jeremy Scott called upon his friend and longtime muse, Karen Elson, to star in and collaborate on the music for a short film. The fun and utterly glamorous part-singing, part-dancing showcase is topped off with an electrifying original track from the British supermodel-turned-songstress called Lightning Strikes. 
5. Pieter Mulier brought the heat for his Alaïa debut

Since the announcement of Pieter Mulier’s appointment at Alaïa, there’s been speculation of whether he would be able to live up to the standard set by its legendary founder, the late Azzedine Alaïa, who sadly passed away in 2017. Thankfully, the Belgian-born creative director delivered beyond expectations with a collection that not only paid tribute to the hallowed house codes, but also brought a new energy that exuded pure, unadulterated sensual glamour. 
6. Balenciaga broke the internet with its first haute couture show in 53 years

For its first haute couture offering since 1968, Georgian fashion designer Demna Gvasalia went back to the maison’s roots and hosted a phenomenal show at the Balenciaga salon at 10 Avenue Georges V, Paris. And, to put it mildly, the fashion world went wild as feeds on every social media platform were flooded with looks and clips reposted from the few lucky editors who were present. Standout moments? Too many to choose from, but the hybrid ballgown and tailored trouser look or the dreamy tangerine skirt suit paired with an oversized Philip Treacy lampshade hat spring to mind. 
7. Sacai designer Chitose Abe remixed Jean Paul Gaultier’s greatest looks 

As the first guest designer at Jean Paul Gaultier (since Gaultier officially stepped down in January 2020), Chitose Abe of Sacai took on the legacy of the Parisian powerhouse for AW21 haute couture. The Japanese designer reinterpreted iconic codes such as sailor tops, pinstripes and corsets with her own signature touches — from hand-gathered pleats and deconstructed trench coats to hybrid constructed pieces. 
8. Pyer Moss celebrated Black invention with its inaugural couture collection

Pyer Moss designer Kerby Jean-Raymond made history as the first Black designer invited by France’s Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture to present on the official schedule. Shown at the historically significant estate of the US’s first female Black self-made millionaire Madam CJ Walker, the Pyer Moss collection was an extravagantly surreal ode to Black inventors of the past. 
9. Tomo Koizumi brought his organza confections to Kyoto

New-gen couturier Tomo Koizumi took Japan’s fashion pack to Kyoto’s iconic Nijō Castle for his annual collection showcase. And the clothes? “I wanted to challenge myself and make it more conceptual,” the designer told Vogue. This time, he opted to use organza made out of 100 per cent recycled plastic bottles spray painted in his signature bubblegum palette. 
10. Saint Laurent presented its macabre men’s show inside a living work of art

For his SS22 menswear collection show space, creative director Anthony Vaccarello commissioned American artist Doug Aitken to create an art installation that interacts with the landscape of Venice in concomitance with the Biennale of Architecture. During the show itself, models strutted through the prismatic, mirrored construction in Victorian-era, gothic-inspired tailoring that oozed rock’n’roll appeal. 
11. Valentino showed a breathtaking couture display of dreams at the Gaggiandre, Venice

Set in the iconic shipbuilding yard of Venice, Valentino’s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli delivered yet another magnificent haute couture collection that paid tribute to the intricacies of fine art. Guests were asked to wear white as they were serenaded by British singer Cosima, while models sashayed in looks of vibrant colour and volume that were nothing short of delightful. 
12. Fendi delivered a cinematic short by director Luca Guadagnino and narrated by Kate Moss 

Creative director Kim Jones wanted to transport his audience to Rome via a film for his second couture collection for Fendi. Brought to life by Luca Guadagnino, director of Call Me By Your Name (2017), the short featured 1990s supermodels Amber Valletta, Christy Turlington, Paulina Porizkova and Kate Moss wearing intricately embroidered gowns in shades of taupe, rose and cream.

21 of Gigi Hadid’s Best Runway Moments

21 of Gigi Hadid’s Best Runway Moments

Gigi Hadid photographed by Peter Lindbergh for Vogue Arabia, March 2019.
With an Instagram following of 52.3 million, 35 international Vogue covers under her belt and a runway résumé of the most storied luxury fashion houses in the world (including Prada, Fendi and Chanel), it’s little surprise that Gigi Hadid is one of the most in-demand catwalk stars on the planet.
Since her runway debut at New York Fashion Week in 2014, Gigi’s career highlights have been fast and many, from tackling gatecrashing YouTuber Marie Benoliel at Chanel SS20 to oozing modern-day Hollywood at Tom Ford’s glittering Los Angeles show and being named International Model of the Year by the British Fashion Council. To celebrate her 26th birthday on the April 23, we look back on 21 of her most iconic runway moments. 
1. Gigi’s debut runway appearance for Spanish label Desigual when she was 18 saw her sporting a cinched, checked coat with her hair loosely framing her face.

2. Before Gigi designed a collection for Tommy Hilfiger, she walked the AstroTurf during Tommy Hilfiger’s 30th-anniversary sports-themed AW15 show in 2015 — wearing a raincoat emblazoned with an American football and black lace-up boots.

3. Styled head-to-toe in beige, Gigi starred in the AW15 Max Mara show, paying homage to Marilyn Monroe’s 1960s aesthetic. She made her entrance with a nude coat draped over her shoulders, kitted out in nude stockings, a slip dress and tasselled loafers.

8. Category is: high-octane Versace glamour. The house’s Atelier AW16 collection showed off plunging necklines and graphic cutouts, with Gigi sporting an elevated spin on the tuxedo. In December that year, she would wear a Versace metallic silver bodice and trouser suit to collect her award for Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards.

9. How did Gigi get in character for her runway appearance at Moschino? Take one pixie crop wig, a pair of fishnet tights and a show-stopping feathered dress. She would take centre stage in the brand’s AW19 campaign inspired by legendary 1980s American soap opera Dynasty alongside model pals Irina Shayk and Joan Smalls.

Leave it to Gigi Hadid to take luxe loungewear to the next level in knitted separates. Since the seasons switched to spring, the new-gen super has been giving classic staples a twist. After wrapping color-block trench coats, from Lesyanebo to Moncler, around her, Gigi’s attention has turned to knitted co-ords.
Photo: Getty
In a pared-back marl-grey set – featuring a collared cardigan and flared trousers – Hadid proved that it’s time to step away from bulky sweaters and polo-necks. While out with her baby girl Khai, the new mum paired her soft knitted separates with black Vagabond Tessa boots, a gold Martha Calvo Evil Eye necklace and a Lapcos Live Well face mask.
Photo: Getty
Along with her penchant for a spring trench, Hadid is also devoted to a peppy blazer. Recently, she shrugged a burnt orange style courtesy of Lesyanebo over her shoulders while out in New York City. She offset any officewear connotations with a pair of box-fresh Reebok x Victoria Beckham Dual Court sneakers and bright yellow Petals And Peacocks socks. Always one to opt for ripped denim, the model wore a pair of whitewash Good American jeans, a Cotton Citizen Verona top and Velvet Canyon shades. In short: it’s time to take your knitwear cues from Hadid for your next park bench meet-up.

How to Wear Jeans Like Bella Hadid, Zoë Kravitz, Kaia Gerber, and Kendall Jenner

How to Wear Jeans Like Bella Hadid, Zoë Kravitz, Kaia Gerber, and Kendall Jenner

The greatest wardrobe leveller? The item that unites the girl-next-door with the It-girl? Blue jeans, of course. The likes of Bella Hadid, Kaia Gerber and Zoë Kravitz swear by them – even for the front row, as the latter proved when she wore hers with a glittering chainmail top and strappy sandals to attend the Saint Laurent fall/winter 2020 spectacle last year.As even the most dedicated denim obsessive will know, finding the perfect fit isn’t easy. For starters, the denim lexicon is an expansive one – bootcut, wide-leg, tapered, Boyfriend, Mom, skinny and straight are just a handful of the terms you will encounter on the shop floor.
Baggy jeans were a major trend at the spring/summer 2021 shows; louche trousers were seen at Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Fendi and Balenciaga. Then the autumn/winter 2021 season quashed all claims that skinnies were dead: Molly Goddard introduced the ultimate dress-over-jeans styling hack at her show.
When shopping for a new pair of jeans, take your cues from the cool girls. See below for our handy how-to guide to wearing denim, inspired by the stars who do it best.
Don’t shy away from pattern. Styling trick: Pair your patterned denim with a simple cami to avoid overkill. Pep up with a standout accessory. Styling trick: When she’s not modelling lacy lingerie from her Savage X Fenty line or showing her love of statement vintage goods, Rihanna keeps things pretty low-key. But she always includes a look-at-me accessory, like a fluffy hat from Emma Brewin. Take them two sizes up. Styling trick: A fine-gauge knit tucked into a boyfriend shape semaphores cosy-chic. Reboot the jeans-and-a-going-out-top formula. Styling trick: Zoë Kravitz proved that jeans don’t have to be reserved for casual affairs – just add skyscraper sandals and a barely-there mesh top. If in doubt, pair with tailoring. Styling trick: Jeans and a blazer are a foolproof off-duty dress code for models zipping between shows, shoots and castings. Why pick one colour when you can have two? Styling trick: The world is a catwalk for 18-year-old Mona Tougaard. At London Fashion Week last February, she was spied wearing a spliced T-shirt and contrast two-tone jeans outside the shows. Try them tucked. Styling trick: Heavyweight stomper boots have been a key shoe shape for some time, and they’re the perfect companion to jeans. Kendall’s Prada lug-soled pair are popular with the street-style set and stars alike. Distressed denim can still look dressed-up. Styling trick: Ripped jeans are surprisingly versatile – add some edge to a smarter outfit with a pair of distressed skinnies à la Gigi Hadid, or keep it casual with a white T-shirt and trainers. Take über wide-legs for a whirl. Styling trick: Katie Holmes swears by a failsafe jeans-and-tee combo. Her favorite pairs are from Reformation, Rag & Bone and Ulla Johnson. Channel the summer of love with tie-dye. Styling trick: Several stars including Bella Hadid and Victoria Beckham tried their hand at tie-dying as a quarantine distraction. Why not release your own inner creative, and give your old jeans a lease of new life at the same time? Try a 2-in-1 look. Styling trick: Bella Hadid is no stranger to an avant-garde pair of jeans. This Vivienne Westwood pair combines classic blue and acid wash denim. Take a leaf out your dad’s book. Styling trick: Kaia Gerber prefers to keep it simple and often opts for a straight-leg, indigo blue pair of jeans that are the perfect foil for her dad trainers. When she’s not wearing Converse, New Balance 990s are her go-to. Push the grunge envelope. Styling trick: It’s no secret that Bella Hadid is obsessed with ’90s style. She’s added grungy, oversized denim to her wardrobe of cropped camis tube tops and micro sunnies.

Coats are Key to Gigi Hadid’s Take on Stroller Chic

As the seasons switch to spring, Gigi Hadid is making transitional dressing look like a breeze. Her failsafe formula is simple: a trusty trench coat with a modern twist.
Exhibit A: Earlier this week, the new-gen super strolled the streets of New York City wrapped in a baby blue Lesyanebo trench. Paired with her go-to Dr Martens 1460 boots, she coordinated her peppy outerwear with a H_llo Friend mask. Swapping a classic beige trench for one by an emerging brand, such as Lesyanebo, is what gave Hadid’s outfit an edge.
Exhibit B: Her two-tone trench. Wearing a glossy iteration from Moncler Genius, the model paired the statement piece with black Wardrobe.Nyc zip cuff leggings(a firm favorite of Katie Holmes, too).
Using outerwear to elevate her look is something that the new mum has long since mastered. Last February, the fall/winter 2020 shows saw floor-sweeping maxi coats and plenty of padded versions sweep the runway – something that Hadid has taken note of. On several occasions, Hadid has worn chic belted black coats while out with her baby girl Khai.
And she’s played with earthy, muted tones, too. Hadid accessorizes her Mango wool coat and her calf-grazing Thom Browne staple with a Louis Vuitton shearling bucket hat – because for Gigi, stroller chic is all about delivering the unexpected.

Gigi Hadid is Back on the Runway… As a Redhead

Gigi Hadid is Back on the Runway… As a Redhead

It’s customary for Donatella Versace to assemble a star-studded line-up for her seasonal presentations – and Versace’s inaugural digital showcase did not disappoint. “Models are like actors, they bring the designs to life, just like when a performer portrays a character. During the filming of this show I saw how important it is to give the models time to ‘feel’ the clothes they wear on the runway,” she remarked of her casting choices. “Despite living in a digital era of immediacy, taking this time is crucial to form a genuine connection. This is what the present and future look like to me.”
Gigi Hadid opening the fall/winter 2021 showcase made for an explosive return from maternity leave for the supermodel and new mother, who was seen on the streets of Milan ahead of filming last week with her sister Bella and Irina Shayk – both of whom also appeared in the show.

Versace swerved its usual slot on the Milan Fashion Week schedule in favor of an honorary space on the Paris calendar in which to present its fashion film. Gigi was first to walk the 3D maze set, comprised of sculptural Versace La Greca motifs, which the likes of Mona Tougaard, Adut Akech, and Precious Lee posed next to as the show progressed. Hadid first wore an all-black look accessorized with a sprightly blue and red bag (that matched her winged eyeliner), and debuted a fresh hair color for the occasion: she’d swapped her long blonde locks for a deeper, reddish shade, while sister Bella sported a bluntly-chopped dark mane.
The younger Hadid sister was also seen wearing this season’s hero über-elevated boots, styled with a headscarf, a midriff-flossing waistcoat top, a belted skirt, and opera gloves. Later on, she graced the runway in a striking fuchsia A-line minidress – complete with logo tights and satin shoes – followed by a dazzling monogram mini dress and block heels with embellished anklet straps.

Gigi Hadid Just Played a New Fashion Video Game as Herself

Gigi Hadid Just Played a New Fashion Video Game as Herself

Gigi Hadid. Instagram/@gigihadid

Alongside the many special things that come with having a solo Vogue cover, Gigi Hadid has also received her very own fashion video game.
The Palestinian-American model was filmed playing the game as herself for Vogue. Navigating a fiction fantasyland as a three-dimensional animation of herself in the game, Hadid’s challenges include going grocery shopping to make her internet-famous spicy pasta or floating in the sky and collecting coins. Like any other game, to advance, you have to pass levels to gain new items. Likewise, Hadid had to unlock new levels to earn some stellar new outfits.
Vogue’s creative team assigned director and Hadid’s friend and stylist Gabriella Karefa-Johnson to bring the project to life. For two months, O’Herlihy worked with a group of 3D artists across the globe, including Carol Civre, who worked on three dimensioning Hadid. Timo Rusall worked to render the designer clothes from labels including Celine, Chanel and JW Anderson, and Wan worked on the accessories we see throughout the video game.
For level one of the game, we see Hadid waltzing around a grocery store to collect ingredients for her renowned pasta recipe and earns “Gigi Cache” for each object she passes by. To get to level three, the supermodel had to make the pasta. Hadid achieves a new superpower at level three: superstrength, where she turns into a Godzilla-like creature. Her challenge is to navigate through New York City and get to work on time. Level four transports Hadid back in time to her stables, where we see her jumping over obstacles while sipping tea. The final level concluded with Hadid possessing an extreme superpower: flight. The game finished with the supermodel claiming her prize, which is none other than her Vogue cover.
