It’s been 20 years since Jennifer Lopez and THAT jungle print dress melted the internet. And on Friday in Milan the superstar sent Instagram into overdrive by dusting off the iconic number to close the Versace catwalk. It was – as they say in fashion land – a moment.

The revival of the Jungle Dress didn’t end with the one worn by JLo. On the catwalk, the lush motif was splashed across cotton parkas, trouser suits and denim mini skirts, while a corresponding crystal embellishment adorned work shirts and handbags. A series of shimmering sequin cocktail dresses inspired by the print also looked set to appeal to Versace’s party-loving peacocks who may or may not be old enough to remember the dress’s first outing.

Aside from the limelight-loving palm print, the LBD was also a signature of Versace’s spring/summer 20 offering and provided the show with some of its strongest looks. Among them, Kendall Jenner’s micro-mini, Bella Hadid’s belted pinafore and Gigi’s torso-flashing jersey dress. Black leather was also a mainstay. See Edie Campbell’s biker jacket for more details.

Perhaps even more shocking addition to the catwalk than last night’s surprise guest – albeit, one less photographed – was a flat shoe. From perspex slides to gladiator sandals and bejewelled trainers, Versace said that the more casual inclusions (which also included denim) were designed to appeal to widen the brand’s appeal.

“It’s not for one woman, it’s for every woman,” said the designer, whilst, of course, clad in her signature six inch heels. There was no shortage of vertiginous versions to keep Donatella-ites happy too, including strappy spike stilettos and razor-sharp courts.

Tom Ford Spring Summer 2020

NYFWTomFord1009-25

Tom Ford presented his Spring Summer 2020 ready-to-wear collection at the New York Fashion Week. Models including Gigi Hadid and Kaia Gerber showcased the look that balanced high-octane elegance with edgy Manhattan cool. Indeed a disused subway platform beneath Kenmare Street served as the backdrop.

The show opened modestly with draped Grecian gowns in lilac, delicate silk pants and baseball hats. Trouser suits worn over draped T-shirts and trapeze-style dress-coats suggested that the designer had been experimenting with covering up.

But everything that came after was classic Ford, who made his name at Gucci in the late-Nineties with a highly sexual aesthetic.

Moulded PVC bustiers, bralettes and slashed-open swimwear were among the most head-turning pieces last night, while he celebrated the power of the female form with backless tailored jumpsuits.

The Met’s “Camp: Notes On Fashion” Exhibit

Every year on the First Monday in May, the Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts the Costume Institute Gala to kick off the opening of its popular fashion exhibit at The Costume Institute. This years theme is “Camp: Notes on fashion” it is all about the art of being extra.

Through more than 250 objects dating from the seventeenth century to the present, The Costume Institute’s spring 2019 exhibition will explore the origins of camp’s exuberant aesthetic. Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp'” provides the framework for the exhibition, which examines how the elements of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality, and exaggeration are expressed in fashion.

3 WAYS TO WEAR TIE-DYE FROM ASOS

Whether it makes you think of ’70s hippies, your elementary school arts and crafts class or Carrie Bradshaw in SATC, tie-dye is officially back. On the SS19 runways, psychedelic prints got a high-fashion makeover via labels like Prada, Dior and Stella McCartney, and at the recent fashion weeks, all your fave influencers were repping hard for the trend. For inspo on how to wear it IRL, below ASOS.com gives you three ways to try it now…

Now that’s what I call ’90s

If this look doesn’t remind you of your childhood, did you even grow up in the ’90s? For real though, the tie-dye T-shirt, lace-up boots and dark lip vibe is a serious throwback moment. Those crisp white jeans are the perfect palette cleanser for the trippy print, and the shell accessories bring a surfer-chick spin. To finish, the wicker bag adds an unexpected twist. To dye for.

Double trouble

Who knew a double tie-dye moment could look so sophisticated? This long-sleeve top and midi skirt get-up is a grown-up spin on the trend and we are so here for it. And, with the addition of some snake-print boots, it could actually be a great option for work (depending on your officewear etiquette). Tie-dye, we hardly knew ya.

Get into the groovy

If you want something different from your standard dress or jumpsuit for going out-out, this tie-dye T-shirt and legging-shorts look is the fresh and funky combo you need in your life. A blazer and some barely-there makeup give it a glam upgrade. And when festival season comes, swap the blazer for a denim jacket and the heels for some sneakers. Ideal.
