While a lot of designers are showing off their new looks virtually, some have secured COVID-friendly fashion shows to reveal their new pieces. On Jan. 27, several models and celebrities gathered for the Fendi show, which brought out some amazing looks. Not only an actress and producer, but also a high fashion model, Demi Moore, 58, showed off her modeling skills in an all-black look, making her debut at Fendi’s Spring-Summer 2021 show during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week.
She wore an off-the-shoulder tuxedo-style midnight blue satin dress, that feaured a plunging V-neckline. Her ensemble was also paired with a pair of elongated draped earrings.
The actress described this fashion experience as “the realization of a teenage dream” and expressed a big thank to Fendi’s art director of fashion and womenswear collections, Kim Jones, who also debuted with the luxury fashion brand.
Fendi’s was a rare show that saw an exceptional casting in which Kate Moss and her daughter Lila, 18, appeared, in homage to Kim Jones’ debut with her first collection of women’s clothing for Fendi haute couture. Jones, praised in the industry but little known to the rest of the world.
If Demi Moore opened the show, it was the black panther’s step that closed in style. Naomi Campbell wrapped in a silver cloak with a cathedral train, was the fourth major presence of this stellar casting that affirmed the unmistakable strength of the brand within a show shot behind closed doors with no live audience.
Fendi described the inspiration for the show as drawing from the visual language of Bernini marbles to Virginia Woolf’s time-traveling, gender-blurring novel, Orlando.
Jones said before the show: “Fendi is all about family … I am surrounded by strong, powerful women who I love and respect, and want to bring their energy into what I do.” He describes his own role at Fendi as “guest starring”.
