Now Trending: Gareth Pugh Metallic Looks
July 20, 2011 § Leave a comment
On Day 2 of the Paris Couture shows last week, photographers snapped away at a silver, metallic Gareth Pugh dress worn by journalist/performance artist/fashion enthusiast Daphne Guinness. She paired it with a hunter green alligator purse and sculptural silver shoes that resembled a robot’s feet on tippy toes. The conservative silhouette contrasting with the sleek, high tech fabric recalled Driving Miss Daisy circa 3000.
Korea’s bad-ass yet wholly lovable girl group 2NE1 wore a slew of looks from the same S/S 11 Gareth Pugh collection for their latest video modestly titled “I’m the Best.” They were going for a minimalist, space-age, bad girl look.
Although these looks may lead their wearers to look like baked potatoes, cupcake tins, or Star Trek extras, I appreciate their directionality and their spirit of tough femininity.
