hi guys :-)
K here with a quickie about the grammys. i'd heard about M.I.A before last night's appearance but wouldn't have been able to identify her in a line-up - such is the extent of my pop culture ineptness. so when i saw someone dressed on the red carpet in something approaching garish (+ sneakers??)...
...i gasped and very nearly died from asphyxiation. not entirely sure what i think about this outfit (which is probably the first step towards acceptance)...but from my findings, outlandish is totally cool for M.I.A. and i'm not mad @ the chic for doing her. thanks to red carpet fashion awards, we now know that the sri lankan singer chose a look from manish arora's spring/summer 2009 collection:
from my findings, he's definitely one to watch. granted, some of his designs really kick the air outta your lungs and leave you in a daze:
but for the most part, i'm completely fascinated by his work and totally want to get to know him in a "will you be my BFF and send me free clothes?" sort of way. here's a cross section of pieces from his last 7 shows, in no particular order:
not too shabby, eh?
mr. manish, i kinda sorta dig you. M.I.A, i kinda sorta dig you, too.
