They all sat front row alongside Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour and watched as the industry’s top models strutted by on the catwalk in Ford’s new designs.

Ford’s Spring 2019 collection showcased a series of brocade blazers, metallic sheen suiting, tuxedos, velvet corsets, exotic leather jackets, lace skirts, and leopard print moto jackets. The color palette drifted between harsh blacks and soft nudes, lavender, and blush pinks. Models, both male and female, wore head scarves that complemented each of their looks. Ford’s signature oversize eyewear was incorporated throughout the collection. Forget tiny sunglasses, next season is all about oversize, ’80s-style eyewear. Hadid closed out the show in a whimsical black sheer cape dress.
