continuing with the music theme, let’s look at roxanne. for those of you not familiar, she’s the subject of the police’s song roxanne. she is a hooker and it’s about a man who’s in love with her and saying the hooking part of her life is over. the song is posted below for your enjoyment. she’s actually not the first hooker to show up on textbook either, lady marmalade is around here somewhere. anyway, this one was pretty interesting because it’s kind of hard to look at clothes and ask yourself, “would a hooker walk the streets in this?” although i would say that this roxanne would’ve been the best dressed streetwalker on the corner. lots of short dresses, fur and crazy shoes to be seen.
1: roxanne, you don’t have to put on that red light: dress by balmain, fur by isabel marant, boots by burberry prorsum
2: you don’t have to sell your body to the night: dress by elie saab, shoes by proenza schouler
3: you don’t have to wear that dress tonight: dress by carlos miele, fur by balmain, shoes by givenchy
oh ophelia, you’re such a mess. much like many of shakespeare’s ladies, ophelia was just a little too crazy for her own good. hamlet’s bizarre behavior leads her and others to believe that he must be in love with her. typical rich princess girl brat behavior. makes me mad. despite these shortcomings i always liked ophelia and wish she didn’t meet her untimely end but i suppose when you’re in hamlet you have it coming.
1: hamlet loves me: dress by jason wu, shoes and socks by rodarte, coat by boy by band of outsiders
2: okay hamlet is crazzzy: dress, tights and shoes by rodarte, coat by oscar de la renta
3: i’m going to climb this here willow tree: dress by marc jacobs, fur by anna sui, tights and shoes by proenza schouler
