Oh hey. It’s… Kelis attending the 1st Annual Data Awards and really trying to get our attention. FINE.
Tweeted by Tracy Nguyen, Kelis’ publicist, after the event: BTW Alexander McQueen sent Kelis those shoes. Only 2 in the world. Fashion is Art and Art always being pretty is boring.
Well, we all recognized those Alexander McQueen shoes, but he sent you the demos or something ’cause they look like they’re falling apart and aren’t even detailed like the runway shoes. (Check that link.) And I agree that fashion can be art and that sometimes fashion isn’t pretty, but THIS IS NOT FASHION. And also? You’re not Lady Gaga. You’re just some chick in a tuxedo jacket from Men’s Wearhouse and spandex.
At least nothing died for her Data Awards outfit–I don’t think–unlike the great majority of Kelis’ other clothes. In fact, she’s been in an online war of words with PETA over her use of fur. Via Kelis’ Myspace:
If I started wearing endangered animals like polar bear or orangutan then talk to me. (Which btw for the record I would not – I do believe in the preservation of endangered species) But the minks and chinchilla that quite honestly are rodents and if weren’t in the form of a coat I would demand they be put to death anyway are not an issue to me. … I eat meat, and in fact my mouth salivates as I type the word meat! And the paint throwing that’s just ridiculous! What if I was hurling Loubitons and Pierre Hardy’s at every sad poorly dressed person on the street?
And on and on and on.
Sad about Kelis. I used to love her back in the “Milkshake” days and “Bossy” was my jam. Boo.
