2 things I love the most – Fashion and Music, and their brilliant collision!

20 Jan

There is something about the marriage of fashion and music, that makes everyone transcend into a fantasy-land where no rules and boundaries stand true. When iconic fashion designers create costumes for iconic pop-stars, the result more often than not is mind blowing, and the visuals remain in the hearts of the audience for a long long time to come.

 
I love the relationship between fashion and music, for one creates the visuals of a world that excites and provokes the mind through eyes, and the other creates a similar effect through ears. And what comes out is an experience that you not only want to witness but also be a part of. 
 
Looking back at time, thinking of Madonna in her Jean Paul Gaultier conical bra costume, that she wore in her Blonde Ambition tour, in 1990, the media and audience went into a frenzy. Her rebellious image and her avant-garde costumes, gave way to a new culture where she was an idol for millions.

A similar frenzy was created more recently with Alexander Mc Queen’s futuristic love for muse Lady Gaga, and hers in return for him. Wearing the iconic see-through lace dress (that covered even her face) which she chose to wear in MTV Music Video Awards 2009, and many many more that she wore in her videos and on red carpet (I cant seem to forget the horrific meat dress though).

While many of my favourite music stars of this era seen in jaw-droppingly creative and dazzling costumes: 
> Rihanna in Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci for her  Diamonds World Tour

> Niki Minaj in Jeremy Scotts creations on her Pink Friday tour

> and Katy Perry, in her delicious candy costumes designed by her stylist Johnny Wujek

But, you have to give it to Miley Cyrus, for creating a stir like no other, with her bam-in-the-face sudden make-over that has made everyone’s eyes wobble with amazement and well, maybe even shock. The ‘Wrecking Ball’ star, who created waves for her ‘Twerking’ (Thanks to her,it became a term valid in the Oxford dictionary recently) in a skimpy nude bikini, gyrating with Robin Thicke, with her now-infamous wink and tongue lashed out. This popstar seems to have caught everyone’s attention. I love her music, for one, and the way she has transformed into a pop-star true to the present day!

Miley Cyrus is now gearing up for her ‘The Bangerz World Tour’, and Roberto Cavalli is creating her looks for the tour. Just received the few sketches of the costumes that Miley would be wearing, and I think they are pretty amazing. Sharing with you all, the first look that I received from Roberto Cavalli’s press office!
