Not that we’ll see a dominance of latex couture crossing such a mainstream pop show, but one has to wonder if Kathy Griffin actually takes the hosting job of E’s Fashion Police, how things might change? Griffin has been hinting to a few entertainment outlets that she might indeed take over for the recently dearly departed Joan Rivers on the infamous fashion call-out celeb show.
There’s a just released 5-disc box set of the show that’s flown by our notice these past few days. Yes, team Dawnamatrix is a few years younger than when this network rock show was in its heyday but we can’t ignore the fashion of the times…in the music heard here and the actual fashions the performers are wearing. From John Denver in plum-colored jeans and flowery shirt, Linda Ronstadt in her macramé shawl, Aretha Franklin seemingly sporting a different color Afro show to show and wide lapels on brightly colored jackets on just about everyone, it’s impossible to ignore all the fantastic stage frockery as it is great to here classic rock, R&B and country songs performed live (no lip syncing here.)
We created a story with the runway presentation of Space & Time, where fashion became a seductive dark fantasy but all was made ‘right’ when spirits in butterfly latex came to rescue us all, leaving us in a magical world full of color and light. The hair and makeup here was by the super talented Eva Guida and our stunning models were.: Veronique Marcoux, Nea Dune, Holy Scar, Lalka Dollar Doll, July August and Crimson Heavens.
