The Blonds Fall 2010
Fashion Show was a psychedelic easter basket. The
Teddy Bears were having their picnic; they were
all there: the drag queens; the stylists; the disco
fairies; the hot and the young. It was old home
week for the fab with kiss kiss and darlings flying
through the air.
"It's a jungle
out there," was the theme and visions of King
Kong and Anne Darrow rocked the runway; gorilla
was the first "look" down the runway.
The crowd erupted in gleeful laughter as "the
animal" ran the runway. Then the gorilla performed
a strip tease and it was Phillipe Blond in a short
hot gold strapless number and a huge head of gold
ringlets. It was berserk.
The Blonds's clothing
line isn't mainstream; their glitz and glam look
screams rock and roll. They design clothes for an
alternative universe - the bedazzled Barbie Dolls
of rock culture and drag queens, both male and female.
Kay Perry is a major fan. Beyonce has been BeBlonded.
God created the Grammies and on the second day,
he created The Blonds.
