The Fashion Week Diaries: The Blonds Go Gaga For Glitter

Obviously, these aren't the clothes you'd wear to the family reunion (or any reunion for that matter). But, The Blonds Fall 2011 Fashion Show is worth noting because it was freakin' awesome! Wearable? No. Awesome. YESSS! For starters, the design duo (Phillipe Blond and David Blond), who are faves of Nicki Minaj, opened the show with Chinese dragon dancers. And then, all of this happened...

TOP LOOKS: Jewel-encrusted corsets broke with colorful, draped fringe of various lengths in these glamorous red-carpet ready gowns.

MOST OUTRAGEOUS: A dragon head gave way to a black and white geisha ensemble, which gave way to a gilded disco ball ensemble that made us want to get up and groove.

WILD BEAUTY: Glittering Cleopatra-style afro wigs were worn with crazy nail looks (think: crystal dipped tips and gold talon rings). Meanwhile, eyelids were painted pink, and lips were red.

CELEBRITIES (HEART) THE BLONDS: Singer Keri Hilson (in a crystal-encrusted bustier top, miniskirt, and leather hat) and rapper Eve (in a strapless black cocktail dress with a spiky gold midriff) sat front and center.
