Makeup really can make all the difference - just as Kendall Jenner.
Sporting bleached brows and a short, brown wig, it was easy to miss the Keeping Up with the Kardashian star in the Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2014 show yesterday.
"I just recently turned 18, so this [Marc Jacobs show] is my big kick-off to start and grow my career. The New York fashion scene is crazy, madness, but I love the energy. I love everything about it - like the hair and makeup today, it’s incredible. I’ve never had my eyebrows bleached; I don’t even look like myself!" she told Into the Gloss.
Turning 18 also helped with the fact that she can now legally show a little more skin these days - which is exactly what she did on the Marc Jacobs runway, modeling a see-through v-neck top with cropped pants (NSFW photo after the jump).

"I always say, cute is cute. Whether you're white, Asian, black — if you're cute, you're cute. I see no discrimination and I've never been like that. When I use a black model it's not because I want to make a statement. It's because I think they're beautiful... It's everyone' responsibility, whether it's the designer, stylists, writers, editors, to understand that beauty is universal. Come on — it's 2014."

Who needs cash when you have a Twitter account?
So says execs for the upcoming Marc Jacobs pop-up shop for New York Fashion Week, anyway. Appropriately titled the Daisy Marc Jacobs Tweet Shop, the company will offer visitors goods in exchange for Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook posts with the hashtag "#MJDaisyChain." So while it may be considered free by American monetary standards, the Marc Jacobs products will be paid for with social networking fare.
The shop - which will be open from February 7 to February 9 - comes complete with a lounge, a Daisy photo booth (for your Instagram, of course!), drinks, and Wi-Fi (naturally).
Additionally, "he most creative social media posts" will win Marc Jacobs accessories throughout the day. Sounds like a good deal for any fashionista!

Karlie Kloss made her catwalk return during Paris Fashion Week yesterday.
The model - who skipped Milan, London and New York Fashion Week this year - took to the runway for Anthony Vaccarello, where she opened the show, and is set to also walk for Christian Dior, Lanvin and Jean Paul Gaultier.
According to Fashionista.com, Karlie had cancelled all Milan, London and New York Fashion Week appearances this year because she had planned to film a commercial in Japan but it fell through allowing her to take part in Paris Fashion Week. Karlie was joined on the runway by several other top names including Joan Smalls, Anja Rubik and Arizona Muse, while Kanye West was spotted in the front row.
The 19-year-old Chicago born model, however, admitted recently she was missing New York Fashion Week, tweeting, "No one is more bummed than me to be missing out on all of the#NYFW fun - sending all my love to NYC! Xx (sic)"

Victoria Beckham has been overwhelmed by the response to her new range of dresses.
The singer-turned-designer showcased her second collection for her Victoria, Victoria Beckham, line yesterday at New York Fashion Week and admits she is stunned at how popular the items have become.
The response has been quite breathtaking. I want to give my customer and the retailer what they want. It's still girly, it's still fun and it's still fresh and you can see the personality," said Victoria, who also has her high-end collection of dresses.
Last season's debut collection of the more affordable line has been seen on the likes of Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams and sold strongly at Harvey Nichols, Harrods and Net-a-Porter.
Her second offering featured clean lines, shifts shapes, pointed collars, cuffed sleeves and fun prints. "It's what I like to wear, it's the other side to my wardrobe," she said.
Dates for London and New York Fashion Weeks have changed in order to avoid a schedule conflict. NYFW will now take place from September 6 until September 13 this year while London will immediately follow from September 14 to September 18.
Moving LFW one week earlier than normal will help to avoid a clash with Milan Fashion Week which kicks off on September 19. "Both committees remain committed to finding a long term solution that would see a confirmed Fashion Season where brands and designer businesses in all four fashion capitals (New York, London, Milan and Paris), can plan for the long term and when exceptional circumstances arise there is dialogue and empathy to find a solution that works for all," said a statement from the British Fashion Council.
Steven Kolb of the Council of Fashion Designers of America added, "We've been back and forth on this. People are anxious and need to know the dates. There's no value for the cities to compete. In the spirit of working together, London and New York are in agreement that we will go in the earlier period, but with the hope that the four cities will come out of this confusion and work together to plan future show weeks. We need to begin to look at the fashion season not as individual fashion weeks, but very much as a global business."
Victoria Beckham has jetted in to New York ahead of her show at New York Fashion Week. The singer-turned-designer - who was accompanied by her eight-week-old daughter, Harper Seven, as she arrived yesterday - will present her Spring/Summer 2012 collection on Sunday at the New York Public Library, and Victoria has recently revealed both she and her little girl were excited about the event.
"Mummy and baby Harper are very excited for fashion week!!! X VB Casting in NY! Today I'm wearing #victoriabeckham and Baby Harper wearing Makie, excited for FW! x VB (sic)" she wrote on her Twitter.

Zac Posen is to return to New York Fashion Week. The US designer will show his Spring/Summer 2012 collection on September 11 at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall, a year after moving to Paris to show his eponymous collection in the French capital.
"Paris is wonderful but it just feels like the right time to show in New York," said Zac, who still presented his Z Spoke by Zac Posen diffusion line in his hometown.
"For the Zac Posen Collection, I wanted to give a different voice and focus in the international fashion arena. Obviously, New York has been extremely supportive of me and the stars were aligned to base Z Spoke in my hometown. I have learned over the past 10 years to trust my instinct, to have fun with experimentation and to innovate. I do not see this choice as a focus on Europe, rather, it's about taking a risk, which is something that is important to do as a creator in order to evolve," he said at the time of his move to Paris.
Avril Lavigne is to show at New York Fashion Week. The "Girlfriend" singer will showcase the latest collection for her Abbey Dawn clothing range at the prestigious event next month.
According to a press release, the event - which will take place on September 12 at the city's Style 360-Metropolitan Pavilion - will be "a high-energy runway fashion show." The ladies' line will include dresses, denim, skirts, footwear, handbags, wallets, purses and eyewear.
Earlier this year, Avril said her fashion tastes have grown more sophisticated over time. The "What The Hell" hitmaker used to be famed for her rock chick look, but has now started to wear dresses and heels as her style has matured over the years.
"When I was younger, I dressed skater and had that whole thing going on. But as I grew up, I eventually started wearing heels and dresses. Over time, fashion choices change. Now that I'm older and have a fashion line, I'm more into fashion. I like to dress with rock 'n' roll elements and be casual. I like jeans with rips and skulls, but now I wear more flattering pieces. I would never have worn heels or tight trousers before, or dresses. Today, though, I enjoy it. I've grown up."
Plus size model Crystal Renn has stormed the catwalks of Paris Fashion Week.
The curvaceous beauty flaunted her size 14 figure on the runways of legendary French fashion houses Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier. After walking for the Zac Posen ZSpoke show at New York Fashion Week last month, the model has revealed being treated like “any other girl” in Paris has been an “amazing” experience.
“This has been one of the most amazing times of my life. I’ve done one show before, usually as a special guest, but to be working this much is incredible. Being treated as one of the pack, not the plus size model, is a real breakthrough. I’m here being treated like any other girl. It doesn’t matter my size. It doesn’t matter who I am. I’m going on castings like everybody else.”
Crystal admitted the fashion industry is becoming increasingly accepting of those who stray away from the model norm: “I’m still different from most of the girls at the castings but when I first started, the girls were all blonde, all emaciated and miserable looking. Now, there’s more ethnic diversity. The girls are not as skinny as before. You do see size 10s and a couple size 12s. There is change happening in the industry. There is more allowance for people to be different. I’m so impressed. I can’t wait for next season.”
