One thing I will never understand is America's disdain for originality. When Bjork wore the "Swan" dress to the Grammy's years ago, my first thought was that she was the coolest person on the earth...I LOVED it . But mostly I loved that she did not take herself too seriously. To some, they might think you have to have a huge ego to pull that off, but I think the complete opposite. I think it has to do with self assurance not ego. Many people just dress the part because they can't let go of their "Fabulousness".
Anyhoo, I might have a hard time pulling these off, and I try to avoid major trends, but I say go for it, Cher, Bjork, Lady Gaga. How boring it would be without you!
