It's been a while since we've seen Coco Rocha . . . and now we see her looking super colorful on the January cover of Elle Italia! Photographer Alexei Hay captured the bubbly model in a playful pose, wearing layers upon layers — a teal bodysuit, voluminous maxiskirt, platform shoes, with hot pink socks. There's obviously a lot going on, so it's not a look that would translate well to the streets or be super flattering. But what do you think of it on the cover of a magazine? Is this Coco cover freaky or fabulous?
Let me preface this post by saying that I love a big scarf. Cozy knit scarves are the best; the bigger the better –– or so I thought. After seeing this super long, super chunky Soopa Scarf ($150) by Etsy seller Yooko, I'm not so sure how I feel anymore. Clocking in at about eight feet, nine inches –– with an 11-foot long sister scarf ($220) available as well –– this neck warmer pretty much swallows you alive. I definitely want to be warm –– but I also need to see, and speak, and turn my head! What do you think: is this giant scarf freaky or fabulous?
Kim Kardashian often dresses up when sitting courtside at basketball games. But the latest Miami Heat vs. New Jersey Nets game she attended was fancy on a whole other level. The all-black and over-the-knee boots are customary for Kim, but the fur sleeve is a new addition to her wardrobe. It looks as though she chopped her fur chubby and was left with just the left sleeve; perhaps better suited for a red carpet than a basketball court. What do you think: is this a fabulous new trend or just plain freaky?
Although Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, I'm not sure he wanted to be a shoe. If you ever had childhood dreams of taking your fave stuffed friend wherever you went, consider your wish fulfilled! For his latest Adidas collection, designer Jeremy Scott decided to go the pink, fluffy route and use teddy bear heads for the tongues of these kicks. I'm curious to see if people will be wearing these on the street — and hopefully not on a rainy day. What are your thoughts: freaky or fabulous?
Just when you thought Paris finished off this season's Spring '11 Fashion Week, there's another one happening in Lisbon, Portugal. The most eye-catching designs are courtesy of aforest-design. Talk about seeing double! If one pair of sunglasses isn't enough for you, how about two pairs? Or, care for a spare pair of sneakers? These trippy pieces are obviously more suitable for the catwalk than the streets, but they're novel nonetheless. What do you think — freaky or fabulous?
Miuccia Prada strayed away, way away from Fall's uber ladylike motif. For Spring '11, she opted for neon, stripes, flamenco-inspired silhouettes, even bananas and monkeys! It looks like the lady is rebelling against her suffocating corsets. And the accessories were punchier than ever — dyed fox tails, colorful platforms, striped bags, and gigantic sombreros. Eye catching, for sure, but freaky or fabulous?
There are a ton of accessories that can instantly spice up your look: blingin' jewelry, a standout handbag, some killer heels, a breezy scarf. But have you ever considered sporting this Campise Faux Fox Tail ($48) as your next go-to accessory? It may take getting used to, but many stylish guys and gals are already wearing similar styles on the streets and at concerts. Think it over for a minute, then tell me, is this trend totally freaky or potentially fabulous?
We've seen some freakishly fabulous things in our time, and this Ayaka_Nishi Spine Necklace ($2,195) is another one of them. The craziest bit is that it's made of animal bones. Bone jewelry is nothing new — remember the Delfina Delettrez skeleton hand? — but this spine necklace is pretty bold, as it would be front-and-center on your decolletage. Are you ready to show the world your spine?
Jewelry with the eye motif is often used for protection from the proverbial evil eye. But these Ambush Eye Got Ballz Rings ($251 each) will provide protection on another level. Just check out those massive red bloodshot veins — they're sure to freak out any passerby! Leave it to Lady Gaga to rock it out hard-core. Price aside, are these double eyeball rings freaky or fabulous?
The 2010 MTV World Stage VMAJ kicked off in Tokyo. Among the Japanese artists to hit the red carpet was sassy American pop singer Ke$ha. She's known to have bolder than bold taste, but this ensemble — or rather, her massive feather headpiece — is way outrageous, even for her. It even makes some of Lady Gaga's hats look tame. To offset the headpiece, Ke$ha opted for a more modern bottom half: a leather jacket, leather leggings, and wooden platform sandals. A peek-a-boo bra effect feeds into her signature sexiness. Is this freaky or do you commend Ke$ha for thinking bold?
