Bow Down To FKA Twigs, The Angel Of Paris Men’s Fashion Week

FKA Twigs made an unexpected and wholly ethereal appearance at Paris Men’s Fashion Week, as she soundtracked the Valentino autumn/winter 2020 show with stripped-back renditions of her singles “Mary Magdalene” and “Cellophane”.

Pierpaolo Piccioli might have infused the tailoring in the collection with his couture sensibilities, but, for one night only, male fashion was about celebrating an angel within the models’ midsts.

Twigs – real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett – wore look 46 from the haute couture offering Picciolo recently presented in Beijing’s storied Summer Palace.

Entitled a “Valentino Daydream”, the exquisite collection also included J-Lo’s Golden Globes gown, with the bouffant bow detail that drew comparisons to Christmas gift wrapping, and the meticulously embroidered floral ball gown that helped bright young thing Kaitlyn Dever graduate into fashion ingenue.
