Karl Lagerfeld seemed set on outdoing the Couture collections in Paris this week. The famed designer pulled out all the fashion stops by taking over Rome's iconic Trevi Fountain for Fendi’s 90th Anniversary show - the first-ever fashion label to host a show at the site - with Kate Hudson and Lottie Moss in attendance.

But it was the starry cast of models from Kendall Jenner to Bella Hadid we couldn’t keep our eyes off – who 110% embraced the ‘Legends and Fairy Tales’ theme by appearing to walk on water on a Plexiglas runway.

This is one Roman holiday dream that might just beat that Lizzie Maguire finale in the Eternal City.

The collection itself was just as magical, which saw a mix of forest-patterned coats, floral motifs and the most ornate princess-style gowns. Well, when in Rome, as they say...

“I think this the most interesting happening at the fountain since Anita Ekberg,” Lagerfeld told WWD, referring to that iconic movie moment in 1960s Italian drama La Dolce Vita.

But it was another pop-culture reference that served up serious inspiration for the show: Gone with the Wind. Super hairstylist Sam McKnight revealed that the romantic curls and candy coloured fabric entwined in each model’s hair was influenced by fictional character Scarlett O’Hara, played by Vivien Leigh. A stark change from Kendall’s statement bob she’s been rocking recently.

But the make-up look for the day was a 21st century dream. Beauty extroidinaire, Peter Philips, opted for a glittery eye and clear lip gloss combo for each model.

1930s curls paired with noughties-style makeup? We’ll definitely be trying this at home.
