Sexy Colours

Posted on July 17, 2012

Darlings, we don’t know what the weather’s like in your neck of the woods, but it is HOT around these parts. As such, we can barely lift our fingers to type something witty and stylish. Instead, we’re offering you the following for your pretty of the day; a fierce-as-shit, drag-fabulous, candy-colored editorial that’ll burn your retinas off. Best to fiddle with the brightness controls on your monitor before you scroll down, darlings. At the very least, put your sunglasses on. Countdown to color starts…NOW.



Editorial: “Sexy Colours”
Model: Maria Eugenia Regalado
Photography, makeup and style by the fabulous Venezuelan artist Daniel Bracci.

    sometimes non-models make the most arresting photos

      She’s not a model? She’s pretty fierce but a lot of that is that fabulous make-up I think.

      • PinkLemon

        oh i guess she is a model. i thought she was a drag queen hand picked for the editorial. WHO’S TO SAY.

  • crash1212

  • Gayer Than Thou

    There’s not a single outfit in that spread that isn’t advanced technique.

  • Kiltdntiltd

    I keep seeing Cruella DeVille.

  • MinAgain

    I want all of those bangle bracelets.  ALL of them.

  • Rand Ortega

    Like Disney did blow. Then went to Pride.

    • Chaiaiai

      Sign me up for THAT.

    • TieDye64

      Oooooo, fun!

  • Judy_J

    Holy cats!  You were absolutely correct in recommending sunglasses….those colors will burn your retinas for sure!

  • littlemac8

    Was “Maria” formerly a “Mark?”  No matter.  I see Carmen Miranda updated to infinity and beyond!!

  • Vanja

    I’m having some serious flashbacks right now. I’d almost forgotten my pastel orange jumpsuit with the big multicoloured belt, the slapped on bangles on both arms, huge earrings and trowel applied make-up.
    Thankfully, this happened in the pre-digital era ergo no evidence.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    I dress like this on a daily basis, minus the animal prints and fur. I actually went bowling last week wearing a purple-and-black version of that last headdress.  Which is to say, I love this.

    • NDC_IPCentral

       What a teaser – we want pix of this Bitter Kitten in that headdress!  Bowling ball optional.

      • LesYeuxHiboux

         I’ll see if anyone got one.

    • formerlyAnon

      You must be extremely fun to know!

  • VicksieDo

    Sorry, this is anything but pretty, IMO.

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Wowie!  That jolt of the color wheel really brought a smile to my face and woke up my chemo-infused senses.  Would I ever feel I’d won the jackpot if I had all of those tops.  Which I’d very seriously and completely rock.  Thanks, gracias, obrigade for the full palette palate cleanser.

  • another_laura

    It is bright, even eye-searing.  I wonder how effective it is for the clothing, though – I can’t look at anything other than that face with the makeup!  Those lips, those eyes, they hypnotize…..  Awesome!

  • Hayley

    I want a make up tutorial! Right meow!

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      I wanna know where to get pigments with colors that saturated!  Sometimes a girl just wants to get her drag on.

      • Tara Melissa

        I would definitely suggest Sugarpill Cosmetics. They also have tutorials on their website with people who do really amazing, color-saturated looks. 

      • MilaXX

        2nd the Sugarpill rec.

  • lamamu

    Is she frolicking on the Chicken Lady suit?

  • Barbara Lee Woodruff

    I’d like to see the clothes separated from the crazy colors in the background. Without that, I don’t think they’re quite as eye-assaulting as they seem. And I covet the blouse in the second to last picture.

  • Mary Baumer

    bow down bitches.

  • Isabel

    Tight leggings?? No, not again

  • Alex McGeagh

    That model actually has THIGHS. That weren’t photoshopped to hell and back. Color me surprised! (pun intended)

  • SewingSiren

    Hot yes. I feel like I am living in a dog’s mouth right now. These clothes look like they are made of polyester and it makes me even more uncomfortable. I think I need some ice cubes.

  • Paula Pertile

    No kidding. I’m blind now.

    • Pennymac

      Right? I thought they were exaggerating for the sake of sarcasm. Turns out, not so much. 

  • Anne Lucchesi

    The 80’s called. 

    They said, “Hey girl, you are looking RAD.”

  • Le_Sigh

    Love it so much oh my!

    What mag is it from?  Would love to swipe a copy for myself :-)

  • quiltrx

    Ooh, how fun!  All that furry stuff makes me sweat just looking at it, but I love all the color!

  • PaulaBerman

    I know I’m not the only one who thought this brought new meaning to the phrase “bringing the drag queen realness.”

  • LinXGUA


  • formerlyAnon

    Oh My! I’ve taken to saving your last “pretty” post of the day & using it to kickstart the morning.

    This one was fabulously perfect for that. I’m guessing some of the color was enhanced? In any case, masterfully done. As is the makeup.

    I am very impressed at how items someone (probs not me, but someone) not wildly adventurous could wear are integrated with the blatantly polyester & hideous to create the effect.

    Especially liked the faux candy(?) necklace in photo # 5 and the ruffly black & white dress/tunic in the last photo.

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    “I’m melting…melting…”
    But those colors are marvelous. 
    Thanks, boys!

  • alyce1213

    I don’t find this aesthetically pleasing at all.

  • Nancer

    This made me so happy! A real mood lifter. :]

  • afabulous50

    My eyes hurt…I don’t get it.

  • Fashion Thru 00

    Dayum, my eyes

  • elirt

    It’s a combination of Gem and Holograms and The Misfits rolled into one! LOVE IT!

  • Kristy Evans

    Lisa Frank – Pride edition.

  • Tiger Gray

    Okay what other thirty year old bitches didn’t love Lisa Frank, because I am getting Lisa Frank off of this like whoa 

  • TieDye64
