Veteran rockers KISS donned their iconic band make-up and sharp suits to walk the runway for designer John Varvatos at a fashion show in Italy.

The group, led by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, made an unannounced appearance during Varvatos’ menswear show at Milan Fashion Week on Saturday night.

KISS have shot a new advertising campaign for Varvatos, and frontman Stanley admits they are all big fans of the designer’s work, saying, “John Varvatos is a good friend who does rock ‘n’ roll clothes. His new campaign is based around KISS. Beautiful style does not depend on fashion – fashion is temporary and is about creating a market to sell clothes. Style is timeless.

“If you look at the rock stars of the Sixties and Seventies, they weren’t dressed by designers. They went to thrift shops, they went to the Salvation Army.”
