Do you have bleached eyebrows? Own sheer harem pants and a gold lamé turban? Have access to a white horse? (If not, WHY NOT?!).
Well, let’s hope you’ve bagged an invite to Marc Jacobs‘ New York Fashion Week party. Because that’s *exactly* what he wants his guests to wear.
The designer sent his invites out earlier this week, which warned guests in very demanding capital letters that a ‘STRICT DRESS TO KILL CODE WILL BE ENFORCED’.
So what is this dress code? It may be time to take a deep breath…
The invite continues: ‘FUR COATS OVER LINGERIE, LIP GLOSS, JERRY HALL SIDE-SWEPT HAIR, SEQUINS, GOLD LAMÉ TURBANS, PATTI HEARST SYMBIONESE LIBERATION ARMY GEAR, ROGUE, ROLLERINA CHIC, SHEER HAREM PANTS, MINI SKIRTS AND MUSCULAR LEGS, PLATINUM RECORDS AS HEAD GEAR, SEQUINS, GRACE JONES BUTCH REALNESS, GLOSS-Y SKIN, BLEACHED EYEBROWS, SLITS, RIDING IN ON A WHITE HORSE, SEQUINS, SKY HIGH STILETTOS, MIRRORED AVIATORS, METAL MESH, COWL NECKLINE HALTERS, OR EYES OF LAURA MARS CHIC.’
And this is what he DOESN’T want: ‘NO FLAT SHOES. NO MATTE SURFACES. NO NATURAL LOOKS.’ Righto then.
Now. We have a few questions. What IS rollerina chic? Are the mini skirts and muscular legs mutually exclusive? And how do we achieve Grace Jones Butch Realness?! Because even though we hadn’t heard of it last week, we really want it.
The party is set to take place at infamous 80s nightclub Tunnel and will launch Gloss, a new book about photographer Chris von Wangenheim.
Chris was renowned for his shock images of 70s extravagance and retro nightspot Studio 54, whose regular guests included David Bowie, Elizabeth Taylor, Mick Jagger, Bianca Jagger, Diana Ross, Calvin Klein and Michael Jackson.
So that may explain the eccentric dress code.
We can’t blimmin’ wait to see the photos…
