Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier for Marc by Marc Jacobs had their models marching to the rebellious anthems of ‘Children of the Revolution’ by T REX, ‘Fight the Power’ by PUBLIC ENEMY, ‘I fought the law by ’THE CLASH’ and closed with JOHN LENNON’s legendary “Instant Karma’. The perfect music to match a collection plastered with the words “Suffragette,” “Solidarity,” and “Unite.”

Clean grunge at Alexander Wang with wet look hair and perfect smokey eyes.
