NewNowNext NOISE: A Fashion Week Visit with The Blonds & Danity Kane


Gay music and video from

Fashion Week is ovah! But here’s one last video glimpse back at some of the glamour and mess that we found when we took a video camera to the glizty, ritzy, gay-riffic show put on by the downtown NYC design duo, David and Phillipe Blond. The pair (They’re a couple! And as they told us, they like SEX!) design trippy, shiny, clubby pieces for the likes of Rihanna, Beyonce, Alicia Keys and Fergie. Their style is very much what would happen if Bob Mackie got kidnapped by a gaggle of diamond-encrusted club-kids at Trannyshack. Yay!

Have a look at the noisy clip! Spot guest stars like Aubrey O’Day and D. Woods from Danity Kane (for reals!), Lady Bunny, fashionista Andre J, Vanessa and Angela Simmons (they’re Run’s kids – from Run’s House – and they’re Russell Simmons nieces), Diddy survivor Laverne Cox, Michael Formika Jones, and other cute folks. And yes, you’ll see The Blonds themselves, with Phillipe Blond working the runway and both of them chatting giddily backstage after the show.

Having fun with The Blonds: D. Woods, Angela Simmons, Amanda Lepore, Aubrey O’Day and Vanessa Simmons. Mercy…

Enjoy, kids!
