The Blonds Show Classic Hollywood Horror For Fall 2013

Here’s what you can expect with The Blonds: A) that the show will ALWAYS be LATE. B) that it won’t matter a WHIT because the comings and goings of the SPECTACULARLY glamorous audience will be ceaselessly captivating. And finally, C) that the over-the-top offerings of tow-haired twosome Phillipe and David will rigorously follow a theme. Debbie Harry was there. So was Patrick MacDonald. Less expected was Trina. She was lovely.

It seems that The Blonds were in an Old Hollywood mood. Not in the cascading curls, soft lighting, bias-cut charmeuse evening gowns sort of way, mind you. More slasher-flick villains by way of Hitchcock and Kubrick. A printed polyurethane corset and skirt featured Jack’s grinning mug peering through the splintered door from The Shining. Just as Janet Leigh’s screaming visage was step-and-repeated for the torso of another look. There were teeny, glinting, acrylic knives dangling as jewelry and printed onto a kicky ’50s housewife dress as well as skintight, flesh colored bustier gowns anointed with angry red slashes throughout. Definitely expect a follow-up post on the nail art because they were as outrageous and gore-adoring as the rest of it.

This fixation on the macabre explored a number of textures and treatments. There were black, raven-inspired plumes on corsets but it was the stark, white, bondage-belt dress and the surprisingly wearable, cap-sleeved mini frock comprised of thick, windy manila rope that I found most winsome. A full-length, faux chinchilla JUMP SUIT with a cinched waist was also a wholly refreshing new look for the bustier-adoring Blonds but it was, as ever, Phillipe who absolutely stole the show. Sauntering down the runway covered in a floor-skimming sable, she stopped–dramatically disrobed–to reveal her reliably ravishing frame DRIPPING in enormous BLOOD-RED gems. High drama for DAYS.
