The pop music stars were (literally/figuratively/awesomely) aligned on Saturday evening when Swedish pop gem Robyn (and her BANANAS custom platform Timbs) took the SNL stage and former tour homegirl Katy Perry was the night’s hostest-with-the-mostess. But was America ready for the Swedish pop tart with a bite and her body-rollin, making-out-with-herself dance moves? She did a backwards-somersault-into-a-full-on-dance-floor-hump while rocking a pristine bowl cut (which our little brothers totally had in ’96) WHILST singing “Call Your Girlfriend,” and it might’ve actually changed our lives, like, forevs. *dead* Call US, girlfriend. Not only do we wanna borrow those bouncy moves, we also want to raid that suitcase of yours.
News flash: That sassy ruby red jacket (that she most beautifully somersaulted in) is the latest from Mr. Alexander Wang’s spring 2012 collection, according to a few stalkers/insiders who spotted the Swedish chanteuse shopping at A.Wang’s SoHo flagship Friday afternoon. J’adore. And that Calvin Klein corset belt peaking underneath from the banging Wang? *faints* She finished her look with Black Milk stained glass cathedral leggings, which proves that Robyn totally knows it’s all in the details, and for that, we sartorial salute you.
For her second performance, she goes ahead and slays lives in A. Wang again with her performance of (every queen’s tearful dance-floor anthem of the year) “Dancing On My Own.” Stop. Did she really turn that Wang construction worker belt into a vest or are we still sleeping from our Friday night rager? *digs grave, dives in* And pairing the chic construction worker look with a cropped mesh top and metallic Black Milk map leggings? Buh-bye. Yep, we will keep dancing on our own—all the way to the bank, followed by the Alexander Wang store. (Alex, see you soon, girl!)
