At just 21 years old, LaQuan Smith has atracted some major fans. Plenty of famous guests turned out to see the newest couture collection, including Susie Bubble, Common, Sandra Bernhard, Diane von Furstenberg, and Andre Leon Talley.

The gilded makeup was done by Napoleon Perdis, who used loose yellow dust, and gold leaf on the lips.

VERDICT: Baroque glam. Like nothing I’ve ever seen before! LaQuan might still be taking baby steps in the design world, but he is definitely an up and coming talent, with a name to watch out for.

Nails were done by Naomi Yasuda, whom I was told “stayed up all night the night before the show” gluing the embellishments onto artificial nails.
