We’re not sure exactly what to expect from this video, but we are sure that we can’t wait to see these two awesome Brits in one frame together.
Looking for a brand-referential catchy tune to get you through summer? Look no further! We’ve got the rappiest, snazziest, brandiest hit you could ever ask for, courtesy of a self-described cinematographer, editor, and rap beast by the name of Kreayshawn. The chorus goes like this: “Gucci Gucci Louis Louis Fendi Fendi Prada. Basic bitches wear that shit so I don’t even bother.” Excited yet?
We heard a preview of model and Karl Lagerfeld male muse Baptiste Giabiconi‘s new single a month or two ago, but had yet to feast our eyes on the visual feat that is his Americana-themed music video. While we’ve previously voiced concerns regarding his acting prowess, the video for “Showtime” lays Giabiconi’s talents bare: the man was meant to be an action star.
Herein, we celebrate the most outrageous, show-stopping, and waggish of stage costumes. Thanks to artists like Liberace and David Bowie, our history of wearable spectacles stretches back to the era of glam and back to present day.
M.I.A.’s heavily anticipated third full-length album “/\/\/\V/\” drops today. (The album is pronounced “Maya.”) And while she’s certainly known for her melting pot of sounds and vocal techniques, her fashion presence is difficult to ignore. Sometimes it’s fun and playful like her Jean-Charles De Castelbajac shark dress — and sometimes seizure-inducing, like the neon tribal, flashing print madness in her “Boyz” music video. But when your music sounds like a bonfire blast of dubstep, bhangra, hip-hop, house, and punk, you can get away with outfits that are equally as eclectic.
There’s a reason that Karl Lagerfeld loves Baptiste Giabiconi so much, and it’s also why he’s the highest ranked male model on our Power Grid. The answer: he’s amazing. And now the 20-year-old Frenchman is now being featured in April’s L’Officiel Hommes China — on their cover and in a 10-page and musically-inspired spread, in which he poses as rock icons like Jim Morrison, David Bowie, and in drag as Lady Gaga.
The murder. The masturbation. The make-us-want-to-die fashion. Yes, we’re still very much hung up on Lady Gaga’s “Telephone.” But Gaga isn’t one to rest on her laurels, and we hear she’s already hard at work on a follow-up.
A former producer and ex-boyfriend of Lady Gaga’s is claiming credit for transforming what he calls a Manhattan “guidette” into a mega-star.
