When Jeremy Scott dreamed of staging his Moschino pre-fall 2020 show in a subway six months ago, the options to turn his fantasy into reality were limited. That was until his team transformed the New York Transit Museum’s underground subway exhibition into a runway. When it came time for casting, there was no doubt that Brooklyn-based model and Scott’s longtime friend, Yasmin Wijnaldum, would be part of the night’s celebrity-packed event. Humble and hilarious, Wijnaldum embodies the down-to-earth cool girl—someone who instantly makes you feel like her best friend.
Wijnaldum took Vogue along for her journey from Williamsburg to Scott’s show. The morning started with a quick styling session in her apartment, where she opened up about her relationship with social media. Next, we stopped to grab a quick slice (with a mandatory side of ranch dressing) before heading out to meet the rest of the girls at the show. Sure enough, we ended up running a bit behind, but Wijnaldum made time to break down her confident runway walk before going to hair and makeup.
For her beauty look, Moschino’s house artist Kabuki mastered the no-makeup makeup look for complete with a subtle matte lip and a temporary face tattoo by none other than JonBoy. Hair was a totally different story; Wijnaldum’s locks looked straight out of a ’90s music video. Once the guests filed into their subway cars, the models lined up with Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele and Scott. Finally, the “runway” cleared and a familiar Metropolitan Transportation Authority voice warned us to stand clear of the closing doors…. Then it was Wijnaldum’s turn to make her way through the train like a true New Yorker.
Above, watch Wijnaldum’s complete preshow routine before the Moschino pre-fall 2020 show.
