What do you get when you mix the best models on a Hollywood set, an all-female cast directed by Jeremy Scott? Glamor and magic.
“I wanted to conceptually update the late 1930s Technicolor movie with my casting choices in this loving homage to the beauty and glamor of old Hollywood!”- he told us Jeremy Scott – ” I have chosen some of my muses and close friends, all invited to see the show, welcomed by a very special beauty salon owner, Maye Musk. Women all different in age and size, because I wanted to reflect the world we really live in in this short movie! I do not hide the thrill I felt seeing them all together on the set“.
The Creative Director of Moschino has in fact adapted the work of George Cukor of 1939 to the contemporary, The women, just to present the new collection autumn winter 2021 2022. The modern fashion narrative chooses the film plot: Jungle Red is a fashion short film that boasts a wonderful cast of some supermodels. To the performer Dita Von Teese they added themselves Winnie Harlow, Stella Maxwell, Precious Lee, Joan Smalls who, for the occasion, became actresses: they had fun giving small hilarious cameos that recall the grandeur of old Hollywood. A show within the show that allowed to play with the roles of the protagonists to give life to the rich mashup Moschino-isms with nostalgic hints, illuminated by golden reflectors.

The short film takes its name from a particular scene in the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film: “Jungle RedIs the bottle of nail polish that attracts high society clients to Sydney’s Beauty Parlor. A bold note of color that reveals the strength and power of the female soul.
Jeremy Scott creates a brilliant show, recalling the remarkable “fashion show” recorded by George Cukor in Technicolor in which women participate: a mesmeric and wordless interlude that seems to allude to the nature of every woman’s life. The designer has thus directed ensemble scenes with more than 30 models, only instead of the costumes of the studios we see them performing in the great dresses Moschino, ranging from pinstripe suits to iconic-ironic garments. To conclude Jeremy Scott takes us to a 1940s gala, with soft pink, fuchsia, black and gold dresses that seem to come straight from the red carpet of the Baltimore Hotel in Los Angeles.
