Emily Ratajkowski is one of the most beautiful women in the world, so you’d expect her to stand out in even the busiest of crowds. However, yesterday, we almost went completely unnoticed as she strutted her stuff for the first time at a Fashion Week show. Yep, her transformation was THAT drastic.
Taking to the boards of Marc Jacob’s SS16 show at New York Fashion Week, the model-turned-actress and InStyle's October cover star was unrecognisable in her catwalk guise, as she walked the runway for the first time in her career, alongside the supermodel likes of Kendall Jenner, Adriana Lima, Alek Wek, and Stella Maxwell.
Dressed in a tailored suit inspired by the get-up of a bygone sailor, Emily sported grease-slicked hair complete with shimmering silver highlights and a beauty look consisting of black and blue eyes, a tinted pout and a perspiring complexion, a look which was made all the more melancholy by her solemn facial expression.
While the 24-year-old star may be marking out a Hollywood career for herself, after other designers clock on to her versatility on the catwalk, we’re sure she’ll be inundated with modelling offers. Not a bad side-line, huh?
As for the rest of Marc Jacobs’s show, it was just as spectacular as you’d expect. Held in a cinema, the models walked the tapestry-motif carpet, and struck a pose against a step-and-repeat premiere board.
Goodies on offer included essential cinema snacks like popcorn, M&Ms and peanut butter cups. Beth Ditto provided the insane soundtrack to the event, as models cascaded their way along the catwalk in an array of movie-starry outfits.
Marabou feathers, lashings of satin, circus stripes, silver trimmings and ornate embroidery is heralded by Marc Jacobs as the uniform of SS16, setting the mood of more is most certainly more for next season.
Marc, you've done it again...
