You look wonderful this evening.
Oh, thank you so much.
I’m wearing Moschino designed
by my dear friend, Jeremy Scott.
I am giving my
gilded, gothic, witchy fantasy.
I like it is honestly a dream being here right now.
Tell me everything.
Well, this is Gucci and it is all existing materials.
So we didn’t, you know,
have to waste a bunch of stuff.
This is all already existed.
And just wanted to like be kind of as,
I don’t know
eco-friendly as possible, I guess, with the, with-
Really you look hot, you look amazing.
I mean, you’ve got it down.
You look amazing
Down for sure.
This is Vaccarello,
and we just wanted to do this
feather owed to
an old Jerry Hall, YSL reference.
I remember the moment,
I was at the show when she wore it.
So I just felt like that really jumped out to me.
And I loved that reference
and I’m super happy with how it came out.
I saw like a color change, the dress change.
Explain to me what we just witnessed
on the carpet right now.
I patina’d. I arrived in copper,
and then like New York city
classic architecture, I patina’d.
This is detailing from the empire state building,
some of the draping from the statue of Liberty.
The, this is the constellations
from grand central station painted there.
And there all the designers I work with,
but Versace especially
every time they bring their A-game and I’m like
how can you guys get any better?
This is a problem.
You’ve been too every time.
Very, and you have a baby here.
How, how, how is this ?
How is this possible?
Yeah, I just thought let’s also just kill the Lily
and get a little bit, even more sparkly.
No, pressure. But like we need,
when are we getting some new music?
Because I’ve listened to the album multiple times
and I’m like, I’m so excited to see what you do next.
You’re very sweet.
Yeah. I’m working on it right now.
I’m constantly writing and just wanna make sure it’s right.
And yeah, I’m excited for a new era.
I mean, the, the, the thing is
and I’ve said this I’ve said this
to Priscilla and Jerry here
making them proud,
was really at the core of it all for me.
Making all the people who loved Elvis so much
proud and doing justice.
And so I, I just set out to find his humanity
as much as I could and
and bring that out with as much life as I could.
Yeah, no you gotta tell me about this look,
cause no, no, no, no, no.
You came and you said, I’m gonna shut it down today.
The jewels all over your face and your body
cause that’s different and really, really fire.
And you know, I don’t like to sit for stuff like that.
No you don’t, no you don’t.
I’m so impatient, but today
but it’s for everything for Riccardo.
This is a full party.
We are here with the entire
What’s good, everybody.
So, so tell me about your inspirations.
What were you thinking of?
I was thinking of gilded glamor.
I was thinking of all the,
the ways to take it in different directions.
Thinking about the moldings of
all these old money mansions
and all the different kind of [Foreign Language 00:03:19]
you’d find inside there
and taking those elements and making them into dresses.
Every single person
in this lineup has had a beautiful, beautiful moment.
And it’s been unforgettable
and tonight’s gonna be just as unforgettable
as any of those.
I’m like, I wish I could unpack all of those moments
because there are genuinely
this is just a group of icons, I’m I’m dead.
I love it so much.
[Hamish] Here with Conan Gray.
Tell me what you’re wearing.
I’m wearing Valentino by Pierpaolo
It’s a cape above all is what I really wanted.
And yeah, it’s a beautiful chiffon,
I have giant platform boots on.
That I hopefully won’t fall in.
Are you managing so far.
So far so good.
I just put Coachella in these exact platforms.
Oh you did.
And I was jumping.
So I feel like I’ll survive today.
I talked with Joseph Altuzarra
who is a wonderful young designer, as you know
and he suggested some embroidery of meaningful words.
And I said, well, what about American women in the past
to have inspired me.
Everyone from Abigail Adams and Sacagawea
to Harriet Tubman, to Eleanor Roosevelt,
to Shirley Chisholm, to Madeline Albright, who we just lost.
And I thought it would be historic
to wear a dress like that.
And really in keeping with the evening.
It’s been 20 years.
I told Anna that I would come every 20 years
and I’m thrilled to be here this year.
What’s interesting about fashion is interpretation.
And I think what’s happened in fashion is that
rules have been broken a little bit
and that we don’t have to necessarily
look like our neighbor or like our classmate
or like the other mothers or like colleagues.
So I think what’s happened is over time we’ve seen,
maybe a little bit of deconstruction
but maybe more appreciation for the construction.
That is absolutely true.
I don’t know
No, that is so, so right.
Double Victorian trouble.
Double Victorian gilded trouble.
That’s all you need to know.
