The Best Fashion Memes 2018 Gave Us

The Best Fashion Memes 2018 Gave Us

From HRH The Queen sitting front row at Richard Quinn’s debut London Fashion Week show to Meghan Markle surprising everyone at the Fashion Awards and presenting Clare Waight Keller with her gong, via Prada’s Linea Rossa renaissance, Virgil Abloh’s appointment at Louis Vuitton, and the Met Gala’s holier-than-thou celebration of Heavenly Bodies, it’s fair to say that 2018 was a wild year for fashion. Sustainability continued to be high on the agenda, designers kept playing musical chairs, and – perhaps the highlight of the year – the memes were damn good.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best fashion memes from 2018, from a Photoshop genius to a throwback Friends moment come true.

Back in March, fashion meme account REILLY drew a similarity between the Friends episode in which Joey wears all of Chandler’s clothes at once, and Balenciaga’s £6,985 parka. We’re channelling the multilayer look this winter.

Jude Law in The Young Pope or us taking down every unimaginative celebrity at this year’s Heavenly Bodies Met Gala?

Seeing our fave models and musicians wearing XXS and XXL versions of their Vetements puffer jackets and Yeezy kicks brings us a joy we didn’t know we needed this year.

From Saint-Germain to Brooklyn via Shoreditch and Shibuya, #OldCeline and Phoebe Philo fans made their feelings known by taking Sharpies to new creative director Hedi Slimane’s first campaign posters. The likes of Diet Prada regrammed every poster they found, and a viral moment was born.

For Ariana, it was an ode to her exes. For us, it was an ode to ’00s retailers that specialise in beige sofas and pencil skirts. Thank U, Next.

The last time we saw Daniel Day-Lewis, he was swanning around Phantom Thread in a silk robe and jewel-toned socks. Next thing we know, he’s the Goldsmiths graduate who ghosted you after three weeks of prematurely calling you his girlfriend. Meet Fuck Boy Daniel Day-Lewis.

When Melania steals Michelle’s speeches, is it only a matter of time before she cops her style, too? We all know there’s only one First Lady who can wear holographic Balenciaga boots with aplomb.
