The Glamorous Futuristic Fashion of Amapo

amapo model in 3d metallic prism fashionEveryone needs a little glam in their life, and that’s exactly what Amapo designers Carolina Gold and Pitty Taliani delivered for Sao Paulo fashion week 2011! The designs ranged from trippy metallic prisms to a futuristic and somewhat disheveled look.

I’m not too sure about the braided hair extensions wrapped around the neck on some of the models, but overall this Amapo Fall 2011 collection gets my vote.

HOLY GLAM ROCK! Kronier creations freaks the platforms

kroiner creations platformsIf you think the glam rock style has gone away, you haven’t seen Kroiner Creations!

I would say it’s more of a modern style glam with a futuristic cyber twist, but still appropriate for today’s new glam rockers. They are based in Berlin and make some fierce platforms, costumes and other over the top stuff.

Might take a bit of practice to walk in these bad boys, but you wouldn’t have to worry about running into someone with the same shoes at a party!

GLAM ROCK It’s in Black and White!

glam rock boy and girl modelsYep! You heard it here first….it’s in black and white…..GLAM ROCK IS BACK! OK, I’ll stop shouting now. But I do predict 2011 to be the year of a major glam comeback. And maybe even the next few years to come.

It’s not just because I happen to love the fashion or music, it’s seriously cropping up in every mag I see. Girls in furry jackets and platforms….boys in eyeliner….*ahem* boys in platforms! Get it? Got it? Good! Cause the scene is happening and the scenesters are ready!

Here’s a cool glam rock makeup tutorial for you fashionistas. I would say it’s a little more “smokey eye” than glam rock, but it will work just the same.

Iris Strubegger goes Glam Rocker for Vogue Italy!

iris strubegger vogue italy 2010I’m totally loving this shoot with model Iris Strubegger! Fur, lace, skin tight shinny pants….very Rock N Roll chic! I think the different jackets she is wearing really make the whole look complete. Sometimes I can be in just jeans and a t-shirt, but then I throw on a big furry coat and some chunky jewelry and instantly feel like a rockstar……even if it is just to the grocery store. 🙂

VeLvEt GoLdMiNe the Glam Rock Shoot

velvet goldmine with model julia hafstromHey everybody, what’s shakin’!?

Check out this photo shoot from Harper’s Bazaar UK 2010 featuring model Julia Hafstrom, ironically called Velvet Goldmine. Well, it just goes to show, the glam rock trend is back and making it’s way into mainstream media. Of course I would have loved to see clothing a little more over the top, but that’s just me. It’s still a cool shoot and Julia looks fierce!

VeLvEt GoLdMiNe Glam Rock Movie

velvet goldmine movieIf you love the Glam Rock scene past or present, then this movie is worth a viewing. Velvet Goldmine is loosely based on David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust character and takes place in Britain in the height of the 70’s Glam Rock scene.

It can get a little dark at times but it’s a decent story and the costumes are fantastic! Here are a few pics from the movie and the trailer. A good Sunday afternoon movie.

Rock On!

All that GLITTERS is Silver and Gold

georgia may jagger in goldI’m seriously loving the rock n roll vibe in this shoot! Plus the fact that it features 2 of my all time favorite models Georgia May Jagger, daughter of rock legend Mick Jagger, and Sasha Pivovarova, one of the highest paid models right now. They’re all pretty fierce though and look like they could be taken from a page in glam rock time.

Well, the weekend is almost here. Time to break out your vintage Blondie albums, invite some friends over, put on your best glam rock outfits and party like it’s 1979! And if you do, send us some pics and they may get posted on Glam Rock Couture!

Rock On!
Love, Cara Mia
