I'm highly impressed lately with the fashion I'm seeing in music videos.
Let's start with Willow Smith, arguably the best dressed 9-year-old on the music scene right now (well, probably the only 9-year-old on the music scene right now. Miley's still like .. 8 years old, right?). Either way, in the video for her hit single "Whip My Hair", she shows off her surprisingly mature style - a sort of hybrid between M.I.A. and that neat kids section they have in H&M (can you say 'capsule collection', anyone???).
For the video, Willow wears custom-made clothing and a OneZ jumpsuit courtesy of California Christiania Republic - which gets covered in paint!
This one here is my obsession of the moment: Kanye West's incredible new short film "Runaway". It's a half-hour video accompanied by tracks off his upcoming album, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" (which I am TOO excited about!!). The focus of the movie is really on the fallen phoenix, personified by model Selita Ebanks.
If you think her costume of mindfully placed feathers looks runway-worthy, that's because it is; her outfits were designed by fashion designer Phillip Lim and costume designer Martin Izquierdo. From the wings to the makeup, it's to die for - but let's leave this look to the Victoria's Secret Angels, shall we?
I think the fiercest new hip hop star simply HAS to be Nicki Minaj. She's featured in will.i.am's new song "Check It Out"; and in the video, we can't help to do just that.
Her outfits channel the kind of harajuku-robot thing that's been hanging around ever since Gwen Stefani went solo - but this time, with a whole new street-inspired flavor.
