MOSCHINO: It's a Barbie world

A hot-pink clad '80s Barbie girl was Jeremy Scott's SS15 vision for Moschino in a show that focused heavily on the plastic doll's extensive accessory collection:

Hours after the Barbie bonanza hit the runway, Moschino made the collection available to buy online. We've got our eye on the £44 iPhone case in the shape of a pink Barbie mirror.

BEAUTY REPORT: Box-fresh Barbie

Stepping backstage at Moschino felt like walking into a life-size version of Barbie's dream house. As Barbie's famous soundtrack played front of house, a roller-skating Charlotte Free whizzed past and in her wake, followed a line-up of real life dolls: candy pink lips and blonde bouffants included. The dream world continued at the catering table, where rows of pink Moschino-meets-Barbie branded Diet Coke cans were ready for the models' refreshment. A quick peek at the catwalk revealed a front row lined with Moschino Barbie dolls, as gifts for the most important guests.

For make-up artist Lucia Pieroni, this brief was a no brainer. She slicked lips with a custom-made shocking pink lipstick, which was then glossed to create that sickly, syrupy sheen. Adamant this was "the original Barbie; not trashy Barbie" she kept skin fresh, brows tidy and lashes full - each model wore two sets of false lashes to create a feathery, almost doll-like effect.

And the hair? Well as you'd expect: big, glossy and made of nylon, like a pristine Barbie fresh out of the box.
