"'I thought I saw a pussy cat' now has a new meaning," a showgoer quipped at The Blonds show while Phillipe Blond strutted down the runway.
Of course, he was talking about none other than the 'original blond,' Warner Brother's Tweety Bird, whose androgyny was the inspiration for The Blonds' spring 2014 show.
It was the tenth ever fashion show for the brand and to celebrate, the duo brought all of their friends together under one roof including Paris Hilton, Tyra Banks, Johnny Weir, Perez Hilton, and Iggy Azalea, among others.
The campy show started out with Phillipe Blond walking down the runway in a scintillating spacesuit. Then, as the smoke cleared, the designer sloughed off the suit and opened the show in a crystal body suit, perfectly matched with studded Louboutins. It would be a preview of what was to come: space-aged traveler mixed with Tweety.
It was an odd pairing, we must admit, but if anyone could pull it off, it would be The Blonds. This was, after all, the same duo that introduced a fortune cookie body suit in the past, proving that anything could be done. Models wore their hair in heavy beehives that mimicked helmets. Their futuristic plexiglass ear cuffs were paired together with luxe, bejeweled arm cuffs. These otherworldly looks included bodysuits that were completely jewel-encrusted.
Leggings and jumpsuits came in robotic wire-prints. There were tough and well-constructed body armor ensembles that we could see anyone from Beyonce to Rihanna to Ke$ha sporting.
Others came in clever homages to Tweety Bird. One dress came with dozens of Tweety eyes that zigzagged down. Another bodysuit resembled Tweety's face; it was worn with a bright yellow feather coat. One thing's for sure: Tweety Bird never did look so fierce.
