“Makeup — and Queen Elizabeth,” said Rosella Jardini, Moschino’s creative director, talking before her Moschino Cheap & Chic show about its inspirations. And there they were: luscious lips on white blouses, dramatic eye prints winking on ruffled skirts, and multihued fur coats inspired by the squares in a candy-colored compact. Nods to Britain’s monarch — albeit her more youthful self — came in the form of pretty pleated skirts in bright colors, and a cropped military jacket and matching dress with oversize buttons. The Queen was in the women’s branch of the British Army during World War II, after all. An elegant, blush-colored, double-breasted coat with fur collar had particularly regal airs.
