Yay its Friday! So a great way to celebrate is to give some love to ladies who are doing it well.
Kreayshawn is definitely going out doing something different, 5.1 white girl rapper with a unique style and determination.
A film school dropout who has lived in Oakland, Calif., for half her life, Kreayshawn launched her rap career in earnest on a Monday in May with a music video on YouTube. The song “Gucci Gucci” — an infectious swipe at unoriginal girls in fancy clothes: “Gucci Gucci, Louis Louis, Fendi Fendi, Prada” — caught fire. Filmed on and around Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles, the amateur though impressively polished video presents a fantasy of the artsy West Coast twentysomething life. Boys on skateboards pass blunts around; tattooed girls in improbably glam thrift-store outfits wave their cell phones and boxes of cigarettes around on the street. It was a hit.
Next up its Beth Jeans Houghton, dark folk songbird.
Not only is she really talented she totally has her own creative and uncompromising style!
Beth Jeans Houghton is turning heads. The 19-year-old is still in her stage costume – an oversized pink swing-jacket over a leopard-print swimming costume, and a big blonde permed wig – as we walk the grounds of a music festival. “People call me Beth No Jeans Houghton”, she says, as one guy stops and stares.
“This is from Tesco” she says, pointing at the bathing suit. “But I usually make my own costumes. I was making clothes before I discovered music and writing songs. I like the whole glam-rock Seventies era – Bowie and Marc Bolan. I think there’s an element of music that people miss. It’s like watching a movie without sound – it could be quite boring.”
If anyone could be a superstar knitter and crochet queen and hiphop star its ooh la lapin favourite Twinkie Chan!
If I can rock her look and be a savy business women then hell I’d be made up! Gotta get me some pink hair extensions I think.
Clothing from Bess Georgette is just gloriously vintage and beautiful and so fresh. The vintage thing is so over done you gotta do it well and this site is amazing, you can shop the dresses on etsy too.
