FEMME FELINE FATALE
MEOW! The Blonds A/W 2014 Collection at Milk Studios in New York City paid homage to Cat Woman and other comic book villains, with co-designer Phillipe Blond opening the show in the tightest glittery catsuit with matching whip. The looks, clearly not daywear, are best suited for spectacular performances by pop stars and show girls. So it’s no surprise that Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Miley Cyrus have all sported designs by The Blonds. Standout pieces included a corseted bodysuit made out of whips, a pink 50’s inspired full-skirted coat dress with kittens and spray paint, and a white gown with huge shoulder pads and a glittery oversized mouth. And we can’t forget the mirrored cat shoulder pieces! The make-up and hair were classic over-the-top “BLONDS”. MAC cosmetics genius Kabuki glued pre-cut paper eyebrows on each model for a dramatic effect, which went wisely with the severely cut blonde bangs and long bumped falls. And we also must make note of the most extreme nail art on this planet. We see The Blonds as the love child of legendary designers Bob Mackie and Thierry Mugler, which would only make for a beautiful creation. This show was all about nightclub fun, with perfectly curated music provided by DJ/Artist Scott Ewalt, adding to the over-the-top festivies. And of course the amazing Amanda Lepore was there!
