Marc Jacobs showed his spring/summer 2015 collection in New York last night on a parade of makeup-free models.

Fashion week is known to take things to extremes; which often leads to the weird and wonderful when it comes to hair and makeup.

However at Marc Jacobs' show last night in New York, the designer took the surprising decision to show his new collection on bare-faced models.

Francois Nars was the makeup artist behind the scenes at the show, in what was probably his easiest ever job. Unlike shows where the fresh-faced look is created with clever use of makeup, the models for Marc Jacobs wore absolutely nothing, not even lip balm.

"Marc said, 'I feel like maybe they shouldn't have much makeup,' and I went along and said, 'Maybe they shouldn't have any makeup at all.' I think Marc sees these girls as an army," Nars told The Cut backstage at the show.

"The colors in the collection are kind of military, with beige, khaki, caramel, and chocolate. But we're not locked into having to apply makeup or blush or lip gloss. Sometimes I see women journalists like you, wearing nothing, and I love that, it's just a part of life."

Kendall Jenner was once again one of the models walking in the show with an impressive cast that included Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls and Candice Swanepoel. She along with the other models all sported a black bowl cut wig.
