Charli XCX gathers fashion’s it girls for “360” music video

Charli XCX has unveiled the slick new “360” music video from her upcoming album, Brat—and it’s packed with It girls. Faced with the need to name a new star, Charli picks a restaurant waiter (Greer Cohen) to mentor before strutting through a suburban rave, wine-filled gym, and DMV fashion shoot. Of course, she’s joined by a crew straight from Fashion Week’s front row: Julia Fox, Richie Shazam, Emma Chamberlain, Gabbriette, Rachel Sennott, Chloe Cherry, Alex Consani, A.G. Cook, Hari Nef, Salem Mitchell, Tess McMillan, Isamaya French, Matisse Andrews, Quenlin Blackwell, Sakura Bready, Anna Collins, Blizzy McGuire, Peri Rosenzweig, and Niki Takesh all appear while toasting wine, crashing cars, and staring into any reflective surface. As a treat, Chloë Sevigny makes a surprise cameo as well—affirming her forever It status. So Julia!

“I certainly have a ton of admiration for him, coming and working with the graduating class this year,” Holgate said of Russo. “He is someone who I’m sure got as much, if not more out it than the students, but I’m sure it’s a really wonderful dialogue. I would love to watch…[be] a fly on the wall and hear what they had to say. Congratulations, Francesco. Thank you, and congratulations to the team at Marni—you’re very kind and generous in asking me here tonight. Congratulations to this year’s graduating class.”
