Honestly, could I be any luckier? Just in time for the release of my ’60s-inspired album, Trouble in Paradise, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has whisked into Gotham and set tongues wagging about the return of the ’60s to high-end fashion!
Wanna know what I have to say about it? “Woo hoo!” (And my dear Merton, if you’re reading this, “Woo hoo!” is not a pedestrian expression; it’s an expression of joy and celebration. So shut it!).
Of course, I didn’t know the ’60s had ever left. Weren’t we all obsessed with the ’60s about 5 minutes ago because of Mad Men? I know Pan Am didn’t go that well, but those Mad Men designers really get it right.
I even recently wore a pair of gold glitter go-go boots to my show at The Stephen Talkhouse, so you can bet these little beauties below are on my list of favorites!
And I am loving how designers are borrowing from a range of 1960s styles this year, from the space-age and cutting edge …
… to the adorable and slightly-buttoned up …
… and to the flirty, sassy and fun!
And of course there’s always Isabel Rose, rocking the ’60s look every day and in every way!!!! Eat your heart out, Raquel Welch!
Being surrounded by the 1960s this week has certainly been getting me really revved up. And with just TWO DAYS left until my album release and big, splashy show at The Cutting Room, it feels like the whole universe is welcoming me! I cannot wait to share it all with you!
Now, what to wear?!
