Jussie Smollett: 'Jeremy Scott is a fashion maverick'
Jussie Smollett has praised designer Jeremy Scott after sitting in the front row for his New York Fashion Week show.
Jussie Smollett loves Jeremy Scott's maverick nature when it comes to fashion.
The Empire actor sat front and centre at Jeremy’s New York Fashion Week show on Monday (12Sep16), surrounded by the likes of Nicky and Paris Hilton and Kelly Osbourne.
Models, including Hailey Baldwin and Stella Maxwell, stormed the catwalk in Jeremy’s signature bright designs, all wearing pudding bowl haircut wigs.
“(I) love that Jeremy Scott doesn't give two s**ts and does what he wants to do,” Jessie beamed to The Hollywood Reporter.
"I grew up as a kid loving Cross Colours (Carl Jones’ clothing without prejudice line). It's funny because he's kind of taken that vibe and spun it in his own way. It's exciting. He's a really sweet guy too."
Jessie donned a white bomber jacket with a fox motif on, teamed with a white T-shirt and trousers combo. He added dark glasses to complete the look.
"(My style is) Simplistic and clean," he noted. "I go where I go with it, do what I want to do. For me, I respect fashion as an art form so much but I don't take clothes and the wearing of my clothes too seriously."
New York Fashion Week comes to a close on Thursday (15Sep16), before heading over to London for the next leg of shows.
The biannual fashion event always attracts the biggest stars to the front rows, and so far New York has seen everyone from Jaden Smith to Olympic gymnast Simone Biles take in the latest trends and styles in the Big Apple.
