JACKIE OMG! SMURF'S UP FOR DESIGNER'S COLOURFUL COLLECTION Catwalk treated to former first lady's style.. with bizarre twist.
Byline: ANNA BURNSIDE
JACKIE Kennedy Onassis was a US icon, a fashion influencer whose style is still held up as the ultimate in elegance.
So quite why Jeremy Scott, the designer behind Italian label Moschino, thought she needed a Smurf makeover is a bit of a mystery.
He sent models including Cindy Crawford's daughter Kaia Gerber down the Milan Fashion Week runway in a 21st-century take on Jackie O's sleeveless shift dresses and pillbox hats.
They wore different coloured wigs in the former first lady's signature flicked-out bob. But the coloured body paints were an addition all of Scott's own. One, in a fuschia dress, had yellower legs and face than Marge Simpson.
Another, in a pale lilac dress and jacket, was a dead ringer for green-skinned Elphaba from Wicked.
And in case anyone thought Scott was a one-trick pony, he threw in some psychedelic air hostesses and va-va-voom mermaids as well.
