The 5 Things We Learned Backstage At Jeremy Scott AW16

In all their GIF glory


Jeremy Scott is guaranteed to pique your interest. Why? Because Scott himself has transitioned from designer to celebrity. His casting is always diverse and usually pretty pretty and his hair and make up team (Eugene Souleiman and Kabuki) are masters of the kooky cool. Autumn/Winter 2016 was no exception with a reference of 'Western meets Outer Space. Or as the nail artist Miss Pop called it 'Dolly Parton meets Space Cowboy.' You see? Interest piqued. Here is what we learnt.


Kitsch can be sexy

Make up artist Kabuki told us he wanted it sixties but not straight sixties. 'The teal colour makes the look fresher and drawing in the socket line rather than the lash line makes the eyes bigger. The whole look is an abstract version of the American flag. A sexy burlesque eye but very minimal and very young.'

The Retro Set is back

Hairstylist Eugene Souleiman's inspiration for the big, big hair was 'All the drag queens ever.' And how do you get big big hair? Big big rollers. So retro.


Space Nails are becoming a thing

Metallic, long, slightly out there in a literal way since nail artist Miss Pop referenced 'Outer space meets Dolly Parton' nails.

The Boys are back in town

Male models mingle with female this season as we're seeing ever more gender-blending in the fashion world. This male model crew were getting the most attention out of everyone there. Including Karlie Kloss. 

Designer cupcakes are delicious

Of course you should match your backstage snacks to your new fashion collection and allow passing beauty journalists to eat them. #FashionFuel
