Karlie Kloss, Hilary Rhoda, and More Models Talk Glitter
Two shows in three days might not be enough proof to call glitter a trend for spring, but we’re going to go ahead and jump the gun. It showed up at Adam Selman’s debut show on day one and caused a stir on Jason Wu’s stunning, 90’s-inspired runway on day two, where Lancome’s Diane Kendal applied rose gold glitter to shadowy lids for a glitter look we’re ready to adopt long before next spring hits.
Since we’re in the age of street style—and so many of fashion’s greatest hits start on its favourite models—we asked a handful of the most famous faces backstage whether or not they’d sport sparkle in real life. “Oh heck yes!” said Karlie Kloss, without a hint of hesitation. “If I knew how to do it, then yeah,” said Kloss’ good friend Jourdan Dunn, only slightly more tentatively. “It’s a bit messy and stays on you for days, but if I could figure out how to apply it? Sure!”
“I think glitter gets a bad rap,” says Hilary Rhoda. “You hear glitter and think cheap nightclub, but after today I’m actually inspired to give it a shot in real life.” While Kendal’s mix of brown shadow (Lancome’s Colour Design Eye Brightening All-in-One Five Pan Shadow ($49) in Bronze Amour) and rose gold turned the texture surprisingly daytime appropriate, model Aline Weber says she’d save it for nighttime: “I think it’s really interesting at night because everything else is dark and then you just have this sparkle.”
Day, night, model, mortal—we say, the more glitter the better.
