“Cowboys and Poodles,” while ordinarily may seem like a rather odd pair, made total sense as the theme of Jeremy Scott‘s Fall 2016 collection. The talents of makeup artist Kabuki, hair stylist Eugene Souleiman, and nail artist Miss Pop came together to execute the haute designer’s kitschy vision. The collection was a combination of bright colors, pop art inspiration and a trashy yet amazing derived version of Dolly Parton. As Scott said himself, “It’s a little bit more Dolly Parton, but Dolly on molly.” It was evident throughout that Scott looked to his native Missouri for inspiration.
The beauty looks were as minimalist and bright as the pop art work it successfully mirrored. Kabuki paired a fuschia lip with a turquoise stripe at the top crease of the eye lid. Beauty marks and pin-up girls inspired the finishing touch; a shiny silver star perfectly placed on each model’s cheek bones. And by models we’re talking big names like Karlie Kloss, Soo Joo Park, Taylor Hill and Maria Borges. The hair styling by Eugene Souleiman also reflected Jeremy Scott’s Southern-inspired styles. Think of the stereotypical Southern Lady (or again think Dolly Parton) where bigger hair is always better. The look was made complete with the workings of nail artist Miss Pop. The ‘candylicious’ manicure was featured long, oval nails with a bright colored base and a coat of “Kyoto Pearl” for a shiny finish.
The supermodels were in good company with celebs like Jourdan Dunn, Charlie XCX, Perez Hilton and Nicki Hilton sitting in the coveted front row. The models cruised the runway in looks with bright orange leathers, cow skin prints, cartoon characters, fishnet stockings, and shoes by Melissa. It’s safe to say this Fall 2016 collection solidified Jeremy Scott’s eclectic style for the world to see.
