Take The Rolling Stones and add a little Sydney Sweeney into the mix, and whether she’s wearing leather or latex, it’s all good to us!
In the just-released video for the band’s lead-off single from their new album Hackney Diamonds, Euphoria/White Lotus star Sweeney cavorts atop a convertible down what might be the emptiest L.A. streets ever in “Angry.” She passes under a mock-up (and moving with various video animations) of Stones’ billboards showing the band through the years. She is wearing a plunging zip-up leather corset, mini shorts wonderfully bedazzled, and chaps.
“I freaked out and called my family,” Sweeney explained when interviewed about being called to be in the Stone’s video. “This is the biggest thing ever. I didn’t know it was going to be the first single, but I love the song; it’s stuck in my head.”
This is not the first time the Rolling Stones have set to the open road for record our tour announcements. In 1975, the band arraigned a legendary, relatively hastily tour announcement, playing atop the back of a flatbed truck while it drove down 5th Ave in Manhattan. Nor is this the first time they have made use of a Billboard on the Sunset Strip; a year later, there was a sure controversy over their billboard for their album “Black and Blue.”
This is also not the first time that this particular iconic rock band has featured beautiful, well-known women in a video, nor is it the first where they have revealed some sure sartorial style. From the band themselves festooned in white sailor suits in their video for “It’s Only Rock n’ Roll (But I Like It)” to dressing “In drag” for the photo shoot of the record jacket of their “Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing In The Shadow?” single, to the band’s consistent attention to stage costume, this is a band that knows fashion well.
And through all this, in video, on stage, whether for those appearing with them or just within the band itself, there has been latex couture, surely some leather, and lots of their iconic lips and tongue logo to get us through the years.
