We actually didn’t think it was possible to love Beth Ditto any more than we already do, but leave it to the Gossip frontwoman to go and actually make our heads EXPLODE in the band’s ridiculously awesome new music video. The singer is no stranger to crazy-cool fashion choices- who else can perform barefoot in a sequined dress and still be the glammest person in the room?– but we’ve got to admit, she’s outdone even herself this time around. Set on a bare boned soundstage with song lyrics splashed across the walls and the floors, the tricolored “Move In The Right Direction” vid is pure get-up-and-dance Gossip fun. Ditto’s rocking out front and center in three different outfits, a belted black minidress- a red bodycon number, and a red and black striped frock- but it’s her bedazzled brows that really steal the show.
Once you get up close and personal, it’s easy to see Ditto’s look is a nod to the sparkly face jewelry that we first spotted on the runways at Chanel and Jeremy Scott. And she’s not the only one doing it- Ke$ha sported studs at the 2010 American Music Awards, and Lady Gaga rocked some majorly epic icicle brows on The Ellen Degeneres show. In other words, third time is totally the charm.
