The moment: What inspired Marc Jacobs' Fall 2013 runway show?

Models with matted hair some in oversized coats and stilettos, others in skimpy barely-there pieces, one completely topless, all took turns making their way down Marc Jacobs' Fall/Winter 2013 runway, which had a giant illuminated circle serve as a backdrop.

The moment: What inspired Marc Jacobs' Fall 2013 runway show?


Models with matted, unkempt hair and smeared eye makeup - some in over-sized coats and stilettos, others in skimpy barely-there pieces and loungewear (or pajamas as common folk like to call it), one completely topless, another pantless - all took turns making their way down Marc Jacobs' Fall/Winter 2013 runway Thursday evening.

A giant illuminated circle served as the backdrop of the veteran designer's runway, foiling photographers' plans as they were told not to use their flashes. The result gave his fashion show a sepia-colored hue, evoking a story surrounding the mystical and the unfamiliar. While some fashion blogs speculate that Jacobs' show was inspired by the experience of the dawn "walk of shame," others believe he designed his production around the weather, or rather, Olafur Eliasson's 2003 art installation titled, the "Weather Project."

One thing's certain: The designer knows wearable fashion with a touch of weird glamour. The fur stoles on some models included tiny animal heads (PETA is probably having a field day over this one), his robed wraps were splashed with sequins, and the runway was rife with an unlikely mix of '40s-era grunge and glitz.

So, you decide, what inspired the designer's latest collection?
