Marc Jacobs and Anna Wintour turned many amused heads at last night’s Great Gatsby premiere, after they turned up wearing identical Prada fur coats.
The skirt-lover and occasional dress-wearer, 50, teamed the women’s coat from Prada’s spring/summer 2013 collection with jeans and sneakers, while Ms Wintour, 63, threw hers over an evening dress.
Teen Vogue’s editor in chief, Amy Astley, snapped a picture of the matching pair on Instagram, writing: ’New York’s finest #annawintour @marcjacobsintl wearing @prada #thegreatgatsby screening. #bestfashionmoment
The fur coat, inset with Andy Warhol’s Pop art daisies in white, ’embraces traditional tropes of femininity and womanhood,’ explained Style.com in its review of the collection.
This isn’t the first time Mr Jacobs has invoked femininity and womanhood in his outfit choices.
The designer famously forewent pants at last year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala, wearing a see-through black lace shirt-dress over glaringly white boxers, paired with pilgrim-buckle shoes from his fall 2012 collection.
He explained to model and red-carpet host for the evening, Elettra Wiedemann: ’I just didn’t want to wear a tuxedo and be boring.’
Paying tribute to Miuccia Prada on that very evening, the designer added: ‘I think Miuccia Prada is such a celebration of the unconventional…. [she] continues to be a hero of mine.’
Fashion friends for more than 25 years, it seemed both Ms Wintour and Mr Jacobs took the surprising double-up lightheartedly.
In Ms Astley’s images, the duo are seen smirking and enveloped in conversation.
‘Great minds think alike. #annawintour @marcjacobsintl wearing @prada tonight #thegreatgatsby screening. Double good!’ she wrote.
SPRING’s nail offerings featured an array of innovative textures and finishes, and Yves Saint Laurent looks set to keep the trend going for summer with its new tri-phase La Laque Couture Tie And Dye top coats.
Rather than creating the tie-dye finish you might expect, the new top coats are designed to be shaken to mix the iridescent particles, colour and high-shine, transparent top coat for a candy-like veil finish. And then, after each use, the three phases in the bottle will return to their distinct layers - like a beauty chemistry experiment, if you will.
Available from May 1 at Selfridges and Brown Thomas, in four shades priced at £18 each.
“I live with the idea that I still can do better. That’s what pushes me to go ahead, for me, everything I did is vaguely OK. I just have to kick my ass to do better. I just have to sleep seven hours. If I don’t sleep enough, I’m ready for the garbage can.”
“I always have in my mind that there are more hours in the day than 24. But in the end I find out there are only 24 hours, I never take appointments in the morning. I work at home. I sketch and prepare, and the afternoon and evening is for fittings and photography, most of the time I have lunch at home because I’m not very social.”
Spending more time on the beach to celebrate his recent 50th birthday, Marc Jacobs and boyfriend Harry Louis looked as loved up as ever as they hit up the beach for a second day (see the first day here). Happily showing off their toned torsos in tiny swimshorts while Harry donned a backwards baseball cap and sunglasses, the couple looked to be enjoying their romantic Brazilian trip. Harry even took to his twitter account to express how “perfect” the trip had been writing simply: “just the perfect getaway.” The couple were seen sunbathing and strolling along by the water.

Launching the second issue of CR Book, Carine Roitfeld held a party at the Shangri-La Hotel in Paris, inviting along an amazing array of models, designers, celebrities and more. Karlie Kloss wowed in a printed cutout dress, Kate Moss turned heads in a skimpy Saint Laurent look which came directly off the Autumn/Winter 2013 catwalk and Magdalena Frackowiak was seductive in sheer black. The dance themed ball encouraged attendees to hit the dance floor - Kate Moss showed off her moves and was later spotted chatting to Karl Lagerfeld during the event
