Jeremy Scott is seriously having a moment. Between his celeb-filled documentary coming out next month, his total VMA Moonman makeover and most recently, his decked-out cover for Paper Mag, dude is clearly killin' it as of late. Lucky for us, Paper dropped the full interview and spread with his bestie CL, and now we love 'em even more.
Very appropriately on theme with their "Luxe in Flux" issue, Jer and CL pose in an overload of ruffles and baubles for their shoot. I mean, they have a ring on every single finger. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. Jeremy says he loves working with musicians because "if their job is to personify a part of their personality, then I can come in and help turn up the volume on it. I love that, because it is really being with a unique person and creating with a unique person, and that's why I have these strong female relationships like I do with CL, Katy, Rih, Miley. I'm lucky I have those relationships with people I feel so inspired by."
In another shot, CL and Jeremy cozy up in all black and gold ensembles complete with crowns. (Duh.) CL says Jeremy helps her get into character onstage–especially when it comes to his out-of-this-world Moschino designs. "I think a lot of the young kids right now are looking for something new, and they want to look different. Especially girls, and this is why I'm trying to come out here–to set an example of an Asian girl. A lot of Asian girls love being basic because it's safe. But the thing is, a lot of my fans are those girls, and they want to be bolder, but there's no one they could look up to and be like, It's OK to be that way." :')
Jeremy also told the mag, "I am the musicians' designer because I do things that are stronger and more eccentric. I get it: actresses have to blend and become other people all the time. I'm not that person. My design stands out, it personifies. It's like a megaphone. And I love that [CL et al] can carry my message further." We hear you loud and clear, bb.
