AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE

If you’re Americally inclined, you may know that today is Independence Day. Isn’t America great? It’s many gifts to the world include some of my all time favourite things  – Proenza Schouler, the McNugget, RuPaul’s Drag Race, Pop Tarts, Andre Leon Talley…I could go on. (Also, #AMERICAFACT: My German aunt moved to America after the Second World War and got so fat that she couldn’t eat any salt as her heart would explode)

In celebration of this #importanthistoricalevent, here’s a selection of America-inspired looks.

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.

PLEASE MUMMY / WISHLIST / VOL II

I’m currently sat at my desk at work trying not to be sick all over myself and others. I’m convinced these are my final days. As I approach death, the light in my eyes dimming and my heart grudgingly sputtering along , here’s a load of reet nice things that would make me feel 100% better.
