Before last night’s intimate and epic Moschino show at the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn we caught up with Jeremy Scott’s latest muse Kacey Musgraves. The Grammy winner wore a campy Barbie Moschino number to the Met Ball earlier this year and has been making waves in the fashion world working with stylist Erica Cloud. The approachable Musgraves filled us in on her latest project, her love for the People’s Designer, and how she plans to spend her holidays.
I loved your new Amazon Christmas special, A Very Kacey Christmas. How does it feel to finally have that out for people to watch?
Oh my gosh, we worked on this thing for nearly an entire year. It’s been Christmas in my brain for that long so I’m very excited that it’s finally out. It was a really nice creative outlet for me. I got myself into things I’ve never done before like doing comedy skits with Fred Armisen. We have Dan Levy, James Corden, Lana Del Rey, and Zooey Deschanel in it. Wonderful people that I’m big fans of that are doing amazing and fun bits. Even my grandmother is a part of the special.
What was the experience like for your grandma?
She’s something else. She’s a sparkly Texan. She has always been there since day one supporting my dreams. She was the one carting me around in a minivan to singing lessons and things like that. It’s cool to have her be in this thing that’s gonna last forever, you know?
You have some great looks in the special.
There are some really amazing fashion moments throughout the special that my stylist Erica Cloud and I worked on. At first we kind of imagined this world where Gucci meets Wes Anderson, very monochromatic and I don’t know… It has a nod to the past but a foot in the future, too. I love Christmas fashion because honestly anything goes. There’s a lot of really great looks that I love in the show.
You and Jeremy Scott collaborated at the Met Ball this year. What’s it like working with him?
I love Jeremy! I think he’s a visionary and he has fun with fashion and his art. He doesn’t take things too seriously, which I love. He loves humor, sarcasm, camp and coming from Texas and the world of country and western I can appreciate camp and rhinestones and flare! I appreciate his larger-than-life vision.
What are you gonna do for Christmas this year?
Absolutely nothing. As little as possible.
I read recently you’re taking a little time off.
Hopefully I can!
