FashionTV highlights the top trending videos of the week! This time around, we have a plethora of fresh fashion clips that include everything from a top model profile to a jaw-dropping wedding couture photoshoot with Roman inspiration!
And of course, you can’t miss the exclusive backstage clips from top new York Fashion Week shows like Marc by Marc Jacobs and J. Mendel, where we watch the most popular models in the world right now get prepped in hair and makeup, and speak to some of the newcomers who make a statement on the scene.
Finally, some videos that you never thought you would see–a high-style gothic inspired runway show in Tokyo is just the beginning! We also have a Karl Lagerfeld show from Fall 1992! Can you recognize those top 90s supermodels–many of them are here. Fashion Flashback only on FashionTV…
Joan Smalls is one of the most popular models in the world. Back in Spring/Summer 2012, she was one of the most coveted models for the catwalk and she continues to be today. After walking in countless runway shows, appearing in the recent Pirelli calendar, and becoming the new face of Estee Lauder with models like Constance Jablonski, the way for this girl is up. But what we really love about this Puerto Rican girl is that despite all the fashion, she continues to remain modest and promote diversity.Perhaps that’s why designer brands like Roberto Cavalli and Gucci are eating her up!
Backstage at the Marc by Marc Jacobs show during new York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2012-2013, FashionTV spied models like Lindsey Wixson and Daga Ziober, but also young fashionable newcomers like Antonia Wesseloh and Kelly Mittendorf, who have faces worth remembering (and we’ll be seeing them a lot in the future, we’re sure!) Marc by Marc Jacobs is the designer’s diffusion line for all the MJ fashion for less of a high-end price. In this clip, we learn how MJ keeps it simple and why Kelly Mittendorf loves a good red lip and a low pony.
The J. Mendel Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection at new York Fashion Week also brings out the best models including Kati Nescher, who opened at least 10 shows this season, Lindsey Wixson, Josephine Skriver, Kate King, and Bette Franke. We watch as Nescher gets some last minute hair touch-ups from top hairstylist Orlando Pita.
Inbal Dror is actually an Israeli wedding dress designer living in Ashdod in Southern Israel, but her inspiration comes from the romantic city of Rome with its historical landmarks and old World architecture. This paves the way for some of the most intricate and sexiest wedding gowns we’ve ever seen including ones with lace, lavish tulle, mermaid hems, and without backs. Is Rome the most beautiful city for a wedding? Dror seems to answer with a resounding, “YES!”
This fashion show from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tokyo is pretty much up there with the theatrical collections from John Galliano for Christian Dior, Rick Owens, and Viktor & Rolf–without that gothic inspiration turned into a runway show spectacle. We’re not quite sure of this brand’s inspiration but designer Yasutaka Funakoshi’s collection does look like something out of a Tim Burton movie, with a feminine twist, of course. The mix of gothic, punk, and new wave with skimpy lace and delicate pieces does make for good fashion and a show one needs to watch!
You may think designer Karl Lagerfeld is a style icon now, but he was also one back then when besides Chanel and Fendi, he also took on his own brand. Of course, he chose just about every popular model out there to model his stellar collection–which included masculine suiting for women and tight leather skirts. Can you spot Tyra Banks, Claudia Schiffer, Helena Christensen, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington? They’re all here! Lagerfeld was certainly ahead of his time and every big model wanted to be a part of his magic.
