Oh, Miley. You can take the girl out of the country… and put her in a cityscape printed skirt, I suppose. Listen, I think it’s clear how much I love New York, but I don’t even own, dare I say, an I <3 NY t-shirt. I appreciate her adoration of Gotham, but from what I can deduce from her outfit, she’s a big fan of Batman. I mean, look at her bustier. Tell me it doesn’t resemble the Batmobile. Is she a walking diorama? Is she acting out her own Batman sequel wherein she swoops in and saves our fair city? And what would Lady Liberty say? Bitch stole my look?
Alright, let’s not beat around the bush. I do realize the MTV Video Music Awards took place last Thursday, which coincidentally coincided with Fashion’s Night Out. This left us all with the burden of choosing between one three ring circus and another. I, myself, went ahead and took on Fashion’s Night Out in New York by visiting with Lauren Kaminsky and David Lerner at Beauty & Essex. This, of course, means that I missed out on all the tomfoolery of VMA’s past. But alas, I took a little bit of time perusing the red carpet photos and viewing some of the noteworthy performances via YouTube. And while, there was the usual ridiculous attire of some, others -ahem, Rihanna- redeemed themselves.
And then I realized something. We’ve all been wondering what exactly Miley was thinking when she lobbed off her locks a couple of weeks ago (or at least her bun and I have). Well, I think we may have unearthed her inspiration. Perhaps young Miley was channeling the queen of girls kicking ass, Pink and her platinum blonde bouffant. The resemblance is kind of uncanny and it leaves me wondering what Pink thinks about her mini me. More importantly, what do you think?
They say you should get a trim every 6-8 weeks depending on hairstyle and goals (are you trying to grow out your locks?). Seems that some folks get a bit scissor happy when heading to the salon. Perhaps they’re bored, perhaps they’ve had a bad breakup. Whatever the case may be, somehow a trim turns traumatic when a millimeter turns into a mile. This week in celebrity hairstyles, we have a teen songstress and a lady loving crooner who both decided to change things up by chopping their locks. So, I’m just wondering, when is a haircut a good thing and when does it all go terribly wrong?
Man about about town, John Mayer, who recently split from Katy Perry (I know… that was what? Ten minutes?), was seen this weekend with newly shorn hair. Maybe John realized that Katy was simply dating him due to his hairy resemblance to ex, Russell Brand? Regardless, I vote his fresh crop a “do.” He’s creepy enough as is… the extra hair only added to his douchey demeanor. But now that his hair is no longer there to distract me, we’re gonna need to talk about that necklace…
And the teen queen of side boob, Miley Cyrus, also got a bit snippy recently. While she had been seen sporting a top knot almost daily (have you seen her bun’s Twitter account?), she must have taken the joke a bit too seriously and lobbed off her locks for a very short, very blonde Andy Warhol-esque look. Just when I was starting to think she was adorable, she cut her hair and it looks horrible.
But who cares what I think (you better!)? What do you think?
Apologies for the tardiness of my Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Recap… my dog, Smitty, was getting his teeth cleaned (see ya later, halitosis) and apparently that’s what the rest of us should have been doing rather than watching anyway. First of all, are we really still letting Chris Brown perform (let alone letting him out of his cage)? Remember when you built your Sunday evening around catching a music awards show? Popcorn and all? They were the “fun” award shows. Well, either I’m getting old or the music industry (and America) need to get it together, STAT. Since, very clearly, it can’t be the former, step it up singers and lady songbirds! Despite the snooze inducing show, the red carpet, as always, did not disappoint… and I don’t necessarily mean that in a good way…
Katy Perry (in Blumarine) is looking quite the Teese.
Julianne Hough saved time by just wearing her Kaufman Franco towel.
Wearing Oscar de la Renta, Carrie Underwood proves (yet again) there’s no place like home.
We all know Miley Cyrus isn’t scared of a little Risky Business in Jean Paul Gaultier.
Wait… was this a music award show or a movies award show? Hmph.
Rihanna’s hair is an ever evolving feature. She’s gone long, short, dark, light. And remember when she went red? But why shouldn’t she have some fun with her hair. She’s young, she’s creative, she’s got the best in the business fiddling with her follicles. Well, she’s made another drastic change… except this one is a bit more traditional than you might expect from Riri.
On Saturday, she was blonde a la Goldie Hawn, but yesterday posted a pic of herself on Instagram with her hair back to black. Personally, I love it. I know it’s not as crazy as some of her other ‘do’s, but it much more flattering to her skin tone and really brings out her beautiful features. Hey, blonde isn’t for everyone. Isn’t that right, Sisqo?
