Attention, Fashion Week attendees:
The gauntlet has been thrown.
Today, Yahoo Style received an invitation for the release party of Gloss, a book about ‘70s photo legend Chris Von Wangenheim. Hosted by Marc Jacobs and sponsored by Bookmarc, the bash will take place at Tunnel, the infamous '80s nightclub… and even if you’re invited, you might not get in.
That’s thanks to the party’s dress code, which takes up more space than the actual invite itself, and goes — word for word, and in all-caps — like this:
STRICT DRESS TO KILL CODE WILL BE ENFORCED: FUR COATS OVER LINGERIE, LIP GLOSS, JERRY HALL SIDE-SWEPT HAIR, SEQUINS, GOLD LAMÉ TURBANS, PATTI HEARST SYMBIONESE LIBERATION ARMY GEAR, ROGUE, ROLLERINA CHIC, SHEER HAREM PANTS, MINI SKIRTS AND MUSCULAR LEGS, PLATINUM RECORDS AS HEAD GEAR, SEQUINS, GRACE JONES BUTCH REALNESS, GLOSS-Y SKIN, BLEACHED EYEBROWS, SLITS, RIDING IN ON A WHITE HORSE, SEQUINS, SKY HIGH STILETTOS, MIRRORED AVIATORS, METAL MESH, COWL NECKLINE HALTERS, OR EYES OF LAURA MARS CHIC. NO FLAT SHOES. NO MATTE SURFACES. NO NATURAL LOOKS.
We’re already dissecting the true meaning of “rollerina chic” (do roller skates count as flat shoes, or no?) and hoping to make it onto the inevitably insane dance floor.
Until then: your move, Alex Wang.
