The Blonds Spring 2013 Collection

Posted on September 14, 2012

Darlings, after a long week of fashionating and opinionating, we can think of no better way to close it out than featuring the fun and insanity of The Blonds show. This was our second time attending and darlings? With Adam Lambert, Paris Hilton, Amanda Lepore and a host of other freaks (meant in the best possible way) in attendance, the show is raucous, irreverent, and, as the pictures will attest, loads and loads of fun. Fashion Week can get awfully pretentious but The Blonds just want to throw a party where living sex dolls stomp down a runway in the most outrageous clothes you can think of. Enjoy the spectacle, kittens. We sure did.

Peace out, Girl Scouts.

    Hee that does look fun! Would love to see a “front row” post on this show!

    • IAmJ

       Yes, absolutely!

  • StelledelMare

    It’s all so delightfully wacky

  • jw_ny

    They make a living doing this?  😉

    I appreciate the scantily clad guys…always gets my attention. 🙂

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    Stagewear for Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj will knock off a few pieces. Very fun, it made me laugh almost as hard as Heidi’s Sasquatch dress. 

  • Deedles

    Shark mouth and pleather pants for the win!

  • AuntieAnonny

    Niki Minaj, or Lady Gaga, who will win?

  • Lisa Kramp

    This makes me smile. Thanks.

  • Michelle Nguyen

    OMG – last row, first picture = STORM.

    That would be a FAB costume update! Marvel editors – take note. 🙂

    • JDK_COCO

       YES!!!! If Storm performed at the Moulin Rouge!    ;0)

  • zelavie

    Honest question – do designers like this actually sell their product?  And if not, how are they making money?  Is it just all about exposure?  I really don’t know about this part of the fashion industry.

    • MilaXX

      I’d think this would be editorial or as  Pants_are_a_must mentioned, the kind of thing celebs like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Nicky Minaj would wear.

    • Well i know for sure that Australian designers Romance was Born does really out there clothing and apparently they need to work other jobs in order to have enough money to keep their brand going. So yeah, they do probably struggle ):

      • Alisa Rivera

        Thanks for mentioning Romance Was Born. I did a GIS and now I’m in love with their stuff!

  • Now THAT is indeed fun. 

  • Lisa Dugan

    The black skirt with the paint splashes is actually great.  Out there clothing but it all looks wonderfully made. 

  • Pants_are_a_must

    You know, this is the second year I think the same thing when I see The Blonds’ collection: who the hell wears these things? How do they make any profit?

    Then I realized this is the collection Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Nicky Minaj are probably itching to get. And every person who emulates them will want that as well.

  • pookiesmom

    I don’t understand what these clothes are or who/where one might wear them, but it’s um…colorful?

  • MilaXX

    Wow, that’s a whole lotta crazy up there. That flowered bathing suit or what ever it is is calling for Katy Perry.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

       I think the black jumpsuit with the giant lipstick appliques, as well.

  • bitterk

    I am sure it was fun in person.  Here, it looks desperate.  

  • I’ll have the man in the flowered thong. 

    But without the thong, please. 

  • everest19

    Latex leggings for men? Cringing in sympathy for that model. Also, that crystal bodysuit is ridiculously fabulous.

  • IAmJ

    Looks insanely fun. My envy knows no bounds.

  • It’s kind of refreshing to see some sex on the runway without any dark S&M themes thrown in!

  • Lady Gaga’s next shopping spree! But I hope Madonna never gets a hold of these! 

  • trisker

    The male models don’t look too happy

  • Wish I were there to see that lipstick underwear …

  • quiltrx

    Fun and cray–love it!

  • TSkot

    Lots of old Gianni Versace going on here.  

  • cheesebomb

    I would like this more if the men were in the same blonde wigs as the women.

    • Isn’t the person in the last photo, with the long blonde hair, a dude?

      • cheesebomb

        I’m not sure, honestly.

  • butterflysunita

    Love it!  And what a fantastic job they have! I was so curious about who buys their stuff and how they make a living at this that I read a bit about them–they only design for private clients, including Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry.  They got their big break when Beyonce wore one of their corsets in a 2007 video.  Samantha also wore one of their dresses in “Sex and the City 2”.

  • All I can think of when I look at that first picture is “glitter chicken.”

  • DesertDweller79

    I completely love that they make a living making this stuff.  How wonderful! It is all so crazy and ridiculously fun.

  • hughman

    Grandma is so, so confused.

  • Ridiculous, I love it!

  • Seanybills

    Fourth row, third look.  As much as I’m not a huge fan of swim briefs, I’m really digging that pair (even if they appear to be made of some shiny, non-functional material)

  • Bozhi

    Scattered in there are a couple of wearable pieces.  The rest look like great costumes.

  • Gaga will probably go for the silver crystal outfit you guys also put on top, but I really like the slightly toned down one right next to it.

  • Wow so fabulously gaga!

  • Corsetmaker

    I always look forward to this show 😀 Corsetmaker’s eye-candy!

    The star one is a bit reminiscent of the Kylie showgirl costume (which was Galliano if I remember right).

  • kikisayshi

    The guys are the best part! Oh, and the chick with the fire nips.

  • Vickiefantastico

    Flippin’ awesome. And I LOVE the shark shirt.

  • OMG as I was scrolling down, “I’m a Barbie-girl, in a Barbie-world” popped into my head and LO the final dress. 
    Also, is that a model in drag? Love. Let’s have more of that. 

    • there’s a well known queen who does the european shows, his first name is andre.  he is, i believe, scandinavian and has gorgeous cheek bones.  i always love it when i spot him on the runway.

    • H3ff

      One of the designers is modelling one of the looks, last photo.

      • Yeah, and the same person is modeling both the Shark Mouth top and the Barbie dress, so two of the looks, actually. It’s all very fabulous. 

  • You know, this is really kind of amazing!  Nothing a normal person would wear, sure, but what a lot of fun!  The crystal nipples in last outfit, third row, are crazy!

  • I just wish they were all wearing the wigs.

  • formerlyAnon

    I propose that Lea Michelle just dress from this line for a solid year and at least look like she’s doing it with a wink and a smirk, rather than out of sheer desperation. Maybe she’d get it out of her system.

  • MarissaLG

    Real Talk, though, that bubble tank is killer and needs to be on my body. 

  • Lisa_Cop

    Actually, I think Heatherette was more fun and had more interesting clothes.

  • Susan Crawford

    Nicki Minaj has probably ordered the entire line, including the Speedo-boys!

  • Zippypie

    Props to those models for keeping straight faces!!

  • It’s showy and extreme, but is it really fashion?

  • ballerinawithagun

    Bob Mackie would be so proud! Why aren’t the men bleached blondes too????

  • VioletFem

    The Blondes are the 2012 version of Heatherette 

  • I don’t know how the male models manage to even hold their heads up and walk straight in those getups.  I hope they’re HANDSOMELY (get it?) paid.

  • gee…I wonder which one (the one with the nipples) Ms. Lepore went for???

  • and…why aren’t the dudes blonde? 

  • WintourStorm

    The BLONDES runway show 2013 – This is NOT fashion. It is nothing more than cheap costume. 
    The Blondes don’t actually sell their clothes anywhere. Now I understand why.The clothes pretty much look the same every year. Their whole image is getting TIRED! I like them. But, I was hoping they would have done something different this season. It’s the same stuff all over again and again and yet again. Time to put them on my OUT list for 2013. 

  • WintourStorm

    Yawn! Boring….
