LIP-SYNC FOR YOUR LIFE

This post is basically an excuse to combine three not-so-secret obsessions of mine – RuPaul’s Drag Race, gifs and karaoke. I actually love karaoke, there’s something about public humiliation mixed with a delusional sense of grandeur that really appeals to me when I’m drunk. I’ve also found that  it’s particularly fun for everyone else if you’re having a really shit night and you do Hurt by Johnny Cash. Anyway, luckily karaoke is a hobby endorsed by ~fashin~, here’s a look at the best and worst efforts.

IT'S TIME TO LIPSYNC FOR YOUR LIFE

Here’s my fave, Carine Roitfeld and the interminably insane Anna Della Russo giving amazing ‘mum at a wedding’ karaoke vibes. Not my mum at a wedding, obviously, my mum looks like Saruman. I really want to know what they were singing, I’m guessing it wasn’t Fashion Shower.

When this video came out, I probably watched it about five times every day for a month. Emanuelle Alt doing WHAM, with a little help from Anja Rubik and a boatload of other Vogue Paris regulars. What’s not to love. This video served as an amazing announcement of Emanuelle’s taking over from Carine Roitfeld as Editor in Chief at Vogue Paris after she was sacked, thus ruining Vogue Paris for ever.

Another fashion x karaoke crossover features Jessica Stam off of every show/campaign ever, and Coco Rocha off of The Face and irish dancing. Here’s a great example of middle-class white-girl Eminem enthusiasm

And finally, here’s an assortment of VS Angels including Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes and Candice Swanepoel attempting Christmas classic, Deck The Halls. This isn’t so much Deck The Halls as Cries Of Pain.

I stumbled across the amazing video for this on NOWNESS, then her SOUNDCLOUD. Anything that can distract me from wanting to open a vein in a warm bath on a Monday and look forward to 85 double vodkas at the weekend has to be a good thing.
