Here we are. The morning after the CFDA Fashion Awards and after we have just watched the suggested videos on Snapchaaat. You haven’t? Oh, the joy.
I just swipe to the right and the videos (that only last for 24 hours) start and I can’t stop. Snapchat. It shows me everything I (and it) got, over and over again and I go either “Aaaa!” (panicking) or close the app. When trying not to look like a stalker or anything, since I haven’t yet discovered “what does dis button do”. And I stalk. Pf!
I’m too busy playing video games (sing like Lana. Del Rey.), as in making the videos on Snapchat. Mesmerised. Yes, yes, I am.
And I am not any cousin to any of the guys there, but when I like something, I love. Basically.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America (founded in 1962) of which Diane von Furstenberg is the president (and we love the president!) designated the winners last night and the Fashion Icon Award went to Beyoncé and we love fashion just as much as we love her styling starting with the “9/11” video.
Man! Tripping gorgeous af. Big eyed emoji af. And then “Lemonade” dropped out and no emoji has been invented to describe that. Maybe only Snapchat. Pkgkhgcyjctf!
The album is great, but what would it have been without the very powerful visuals and what would the visuals be without the very spectacular and yet the very chic (awesome!) styling? Put together by Marni Senofonte. A styling like that, man (!), very few could pull up. The president herself says Imitation is the ultimate form of flattery. Beyoncé is flattering.
This is what a stylist should do, you know? To try to figure out the gal/man, let the creativity flow, the passion grow and go bananas. Then make the gal/man taste it and go on a diet with it. It or kale. Either way. Anyway. The style they found together, Marni and Bey, is the perfect combination, for Bey, at least: cool, smart and fabulous.
Red carpet versus videos.
