Marc Jacobs Show SS10

Marc Jacobs may have scaled down the number of celebrities at his shows, but the Marc Jacobs show is always the real “Fashion’s Night Out.” Everyone in the industry puts on their most glamorous evening wear for a fab night on the town, starting with the show and ending with Lady Gaga’s performance at the after party.

Studded Mask: Lady Gaga and Lorenzo Martone Arrive, Marc Jacobs Show

Lady Gaga wore a reliably kooky get-up to the MJ show: flat black hat tied on at a rakish angle, Marc Jacobs dress, white blazer, and a studded mask. (Bunny ears are to Madonna as studded mask is to Lady Gaga?) Unlike many newly-minted pop stars, however, she has always been obsessed with fashion: Check out this WWD article on her as an indie rocker with style, before she hit the music stratosphere.

Her date is Marc Jacobs’ partner Lorenzo Matone, who also looked quite dashing.

See what the fashion set wore, after the jump….

Zebra Print Dress, Marc Jacobs Show

This is a great ’80s-influenced look that tips a hat to the era without going over the top: Platinum hair, kohl-lined eyes, red lips, body-con animal print dress and gladiators.

Invitation Holders, Marc Jacobs Show

Bill Cunningham with MJ Invite - and a Slice of Ray's Pizza

Bill Cunningham grabbed a slice from the Ray’s Pizza across the street before heading into the show. A security guard tried to stop him from bringing food into a fashion show – egad! This is Cunningham, perhaps the sanest person at fashion week, showing his invitation and going in anyway.

Black Leather Jacket and Evening Clutch, Marc Jacobs Show

And here we come to one of the most terrifying trends of this fashion week: men carrying expensive clutches, or as a friend termed it, the “evening murse.” Yet this guy, who has been at many of the shows, has serious style cred. The hair, the glasses, the bracelets, the black leather jacket: it all adds up to that androgynous rocker look that actually is cross-gender. Think ’80s Bowie.

On the Run, Marc Jacobs Show

On the run from the backstage entrance, the new nice suit comes in deliberately shiny material.
