Marc Jacobs Turned Lady Gaga & Kendall Jenner Into Victorian Goth Babes

There are two schools of thought when it comes to having famous names walk the runway for you: highlight their it-girl status, or downplay it and let the clothes speak for themselves.

Clearly, Marc Jacobs belongs to the latter camp because both Kendall Jenner and Lady Gaga walked in his Victorian goth babe NYFW show, and they both looked borderline unrecognizable.

The secret? Bleached eyebrows, dark, raccoon-like eye rimming, skin powdered to an alabaster glow, and ‘20s inspired finger waves, with a punk finish.

And even Marc Jacobs apparently couldn’t believe how he’d pulled it all off:

But then again, maybe he shouldn’t be so surprised – he’s been performing the same trick on Kendall for the past two years now.

Let’s just say Marc Jacobs holds down the NYFW closing spot for a reason.
