    • A. W.

      All of it is absurdly perfect. Loving the fur straightjacket and the kitchen knife stepford wife dress.

    • http://twitter.com/FunButNutz John Spodick

      Wow…but too…literal.

      • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

        Agreed.  It looks like somebody’s idea of a joke collection.

        • IMNAngryLiberal

          Everytime I see one of their collections I feel as though someone lent them the catwalk for a spoof collection — and I keep looking for Ben Stiller.

          • kimmeister

            I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Blonds credited with any outfit I’ve ever seen on a red carpet (or anywhere else).

            • Corsetmaker

              I think Katy Perry has. But you certainly see them on stages. Perry, Rhianna and so forth.

        • Louise Bryan

          Some of them are kind of interesting and even, possibly by the right person, wearable.  A whole lot of costumey crack though.

          • ballerinawithagun

            Costumey crack!

      • ankali

        God, yes. Especially the bloody shower curtain trench.

    • EditKitten

      Well … it’s not boring.

    • Reneesance

      I seriously covet that knife dress! :)

      • http://twitter.com/urban_gypsy Tess Danesi

        Me too! I want it desperately.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      (hearts) LOVE (hearts)
      This is so wonderful. (sighing)
      Lord how I wish I could go to one of their shows someday.

      • Deb Oswald

        I LOVE this!  ART SHOW!

    • minnye

      I wish we would see more absurdity like this on the RC. The knife dress is actually beautiful.

      • Vlasta Bubinka

        I love that.  Oddly enough, my wardrobe longs for the Janet Leigh dress.

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        It took me a while to work out I was looking at knives…!

    • jilly_d

      two words: fur. jumpsuit. and…..is that last model a dude?

      • lexilexi

         Yes.

      • http://www.tumblr.com/tumblelog/lastbutnotleast janinedm

         Um, I think it’s Ice T’s wife Coco.

        • http://twitter.com/FunButNutz John Spodick

          Coco has a much bigger badonka donk

          • http://www.tumblr.com/tumblelog/lastbutnotleast janinedm

             Good call. In that case, I second the “dude” vote.

      • gabbilevy

         It’s Phillipe Blond.

      • Vlasta Bubinka

        The fur jumpsuit- Fashions by Cujo

      • http://kingderella.tumblr.com/ kingderella

         its madonna.

    • Emily Giovanni

      These all look like Project Runway entries. I don’t think I mean that in a good way.

      • EverybodysStarling

        And even there they would say that some of these are way too literal. Even though I love the knife-dress.

    • Annabelle Archer

      Well, I can’t take any of it seriously, but it’s damn fun.  Is that a mink jumpsuit? I die.
      Though a stressed out, tactile gal like myself, could use a full on luscious straight jacket, so maybe there’s something to this after all. 

    • lehen

      i love cheeky fashion.  its so great to see something that is not SO SERIOUS

    • Stubenville

      Photo number one screams “RuPaul” (in a nice way.)

      • MilaXX

        so does the last red gown

        • http://twitter.com/YINZERELLA DinnerIsServed1972

          No, the last one belongs on Sharon Needles.

          • Jacqueline Wessel

            Yes, I thought that as soon as I saw the picture.

          • MK03

            ALL of these belong on Sharon Needles. 

        • Vlasta Bubinka

          The last red gown screams Playtex to me….

    • StellaZafella

      RuPaul/Raven/Sharon Needles/Jujubee etal.:
      Line up, bitches, it’s next season’s wardrobe and real women are wearing it!

      • http://twitter.com/DarrenNesbitt Darren Nesbitt

        I was thinking the exact same thing. The final deep red paillette dress is Sharon Needles all day! ( I had to look twice because I almost though the model was Needles. 

    • charlotte

      The Blonds or the Bonds? This looks like a collection for Bond girls!

    • tereliz

      Is the girl in the fur jumpsuit supposed to be the wolfman? What a fun show! The knife dress is calling my name. And now it’s telling me to do stuff. Ya know, chop veg, kill people, the usual.

      • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

        It’s a sharp look. ;)

    • WhiteOprah

      I think this is the most fun collection I’ve seen of theirs (Admittedly I’ve only really followed fashion for a few years).  It’s crazy in all the right ways.  I can totally see Lady Gaga in almost all of these.  

    • MilaXX

      Interesting, but I think I only got half the references and at least 2 of them were obvious. (Amityville Horror & Psycho)
      My guesses:1.__________, 2. The Birds, 3.__________, 4.Rope, 5.__________, 6.________, 7. Amityville Horror, 8.__________, 9._________, 10.Psycho, 11.also Psycho, 12.American Psycho, and I don’t get the rest at all.

      • charlotte

         I would say 6 (twins) and 7 (Jack Nicholson face) are Shining.

        • MilaXX

           Thanks, not sure why I confused Amityville with The Shining

      • AtArmsLength

        The gunmetal leotard with hanging chains evokes Suspiria, and the last gown is clearly Carrie. A number of these probably aren’t meant to represent specific films.

        • MilaXX

           DUH! Why didn’t I know that? Of course it’s Carrie at the prom.

      • Rrroza

        I thought The Birds for #1 as well. #7 is The Shining. #9 Silence of the Lambs? (hahaha!) perhaps #8 as well.

        • MilaXX

           oh I love it when folks play along. I was wondering if #1 was The Birds as well, but never guessed Silence of the Lambs.

      • Jackie4g

        That’s admirable, that you knew even as many as you did. It just strikes me that it’s kind of literal, and that takes away some of the adventurousness. Is that a word? The risk taking is what I mean. Why should we have to known what every piece is referencing? That’s too much work for me!

        • StellaZafella

          Adventurousness works for me! It has a certain literary realness…;)

      • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

        Well, #5 is made of chinchilla, so maybe it’s a play on chiller or thriller.  Or it could be Cujo or something werewolf-y. 

        And I was sure that #8 was The Mummy.  I didn’t even think of Silence of the Lambs.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=603005248 Jeff Warhurst

      LOVE IT!!!

    • Unkempt

      Thanks for the end-of-the-week, Pre-Oscars, beautifully done, absolutely insane, beyond the pale Ca-razy.  I hope whomever Jack Nicholson brings to the Oscars wears Number 7.  Without the lapel pin.

    • http://www.facebook.com/styrch Sarah Wacksmuth Tyrchniewicz

      OMG! I want that bloody raincoat! :) So shower curtain Psycho! 

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Julie-Chase/731391326 Julie Chase

      God, I LOVE THEM.

    • http://twitter.com/mightbewrong Bailey Hylbom

      Way literal, but cheekily so. love the dress with the ‘slashes’.

      That fur jumpsuit…looks insanely comfortable? I want it so I can lounge around the house in it. It’s like a crazy snuggie.

    • http://twitter.com/BrerAndy Andy Morris

      I thoroughly expect Gaga-As-Hitchcock-Blonde for a little while now. SO FAB.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

      Want the knife dress and the bloody shower-curtain raincoat. 
      Also the fur strait jacket looks really comforting. This may be the crazed neurotic in me talking though. 

    • mightbewrong

      Way literal, but cheekily so. love the dress with the ‘slashes’.

      That fur jumpsuit…looks insanely comfortable? I want it so I can lounge around the house in it. It’s like a crazy snuggie.

    • VestigialMe

      Gaudy in all the right ways.

    • FrayedMachine

      Oh god. I want those bustiers. I want them and I want tall spiked heels to wear them with so I can march around everywhere looking fierce as all hell.

      In other words, as absurd as all of these are, I’m absolutely in love.

    • YoungSally

      Fun — insane….but then what horror movie based collection wouldn’t be.

      I would like to see one of Chloe’s personalities in the Jack Nicholson T-shirt and fur coat.

      The Stepford knife dress has Taylor Swift written all over it.

    • http://kingderella.tumblr.com/ kingderella

      well, it made me laugh a couple of times… but i dont think its good for much else.

      ok, on 2nd thought, katy perry may get a wear out of some of these.

    • SewingSiren

      I’m not really feeling this one. It looks like they cobbled together some of Thierry Mugler, Dolce and Gabbana, and Moschino cheap and chic more memorable looks and threw in a couple of badly screen printed T shirts.  
      The slashed and blooded bustier looks is okay, but my daughter made a knitted choker using the same idea, with red yarn and glass beads that looked less “crafty”.

    • http://desilluist.tumblr.com/ Briarnoir

      Yes Blondes! I love this so much.
      It’s a bigger posting of the show that I’ve been waiting for! These looks are all slightly maniacal perfection, from messy blonde bouffant to the touch of blood on their collars.

    • tylka5

      I want the raincoat.  Now. Please.

      • amf0001

        defintely the best thing there!

    • yulaffin

      That long, red gown screams RuPaul to me.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Josefina-Madariaga-Suárez/100002964685796 Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      I want to see Scarlett Johansson wearing the dress with the Psycho picture printed, just to be cheeky about it.

    • pippitypup

      The knife dress: want. Everything else: Lady Gaga rejects, by way of  Zoolander.                                                                                                    
       

    • http://twitter.com/hamsteaky Maria Smith

      The show of shows!

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      Oh, Angelina, your next dress has arrived (3rd from bottom).  This collection is giving me a laugh for the day.  Jaaaaaaack peeking out from under a fur coat: priceless!  And I wish I owned one of those wigs.

    • http://twitter.com/herong Heron

      I would wear that psycho dress. 

    • RedRaven617

      Love it; well except the fur straight  jacket. Just looked weird, like the model would fall flat on her face if she took another step. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/AntoniaDonnelly Antonia O’Connor Donnelly

      I would so wear the knife dress.

    • SophieCollier

      I kind of like the nude dress with the gashes in red.  But yeah, this seems to be geared for Lady Gaga.

    • Imasewsure

      How fun is this! Love the whole show

    • http://www.facebook.com/aboutelle Ashleigh Boutelle

      F A N T A S T I C
      Love the slashed dress with beaded blood

    • EEKstl

      LOVE IT!  The bloody shower curtain trench coat is genius.

    • Sylvanna Seydel

      I’m going to need one of each of these.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      Well… that was certainly interesting. 

    • Puckndc

      I think the straight jacket would be perfect for some Hollywood red carpet types……any suggestions??…..Lilo perhaps?

    • http://profiles.google.com/denise.alden Denise Alden

      I don’t know . . . how can you not love this?  How can it not bring a smile and a giggle to you?

    • Peeve

      Lady Gaga, your stage clothes are ready… (Especially love the Jack t-shirt with the fur coat!)

      • j_anson

        Hahaha, so true. They should just take out an exclusive contract with each other.

    • lalahartma

      What a waste.

    • http://twitter.com/DarthJaeda Jaeda Laurez

      I love them so much. I realize it kind of looks like everything they do, but I love it anyway. 
      Knocking them for doing bustiers would be like complaining about DVF doing wrap dresses.

    • http://twitter.com/andsheewas Andsheewas

      The Janet Leigh dress. I want.

    • crash1212

      This is inspired. Love it. The rope dress is giving me life. Who wouldn’t want HEEERE’S JOHNNY! exploding from your mid-section? Also…the knife dress needs to be in my closet NOW.

    • CT14

      Such fun–the “Here’s Johnny” outfit killed me!

    • j_anson

      I kind of love all of these. Especially the dress that embodies a slasher flick. And the rope dress.

    • http://twitter.com/jennsaysmeow Fifi LaRoux

      I always love this collection so much! I love the shear absurdity and perfectness of it all. 

    • mhleta

      Oh my GOD this collection THRILLS ME TO THE CORE!!!

    • http://korilian.livejournal.com/ korilian

      So fun!

    • Alexandra Simons

      Sharon Needles would rock several of these looks.

    • ankali

      Is… is that a faux fur jumpsuit?

    • Fordzo

      The wigs…it looks like there were only two to work with, and each time a girl walked backstage, someone snatched the wig from her head and jammed it on the next to go.  I love it.

    • Fordzo

      I get the inspiration for most of them, but what do you think was the inspiration behind the first (the green one) and the little black and blue dresses?  Some of them are clearly obvious, which makes me think I’m missing something equally obvious with those.

      • Corsetmaker

        For the green I’m assuming The Birds as Tippi Hedren spent most of that film in a green suit, and at times had a fur.

    • jmorino08

      I would lilke one of those wigs for days when I’m feeling especially unstable. It would be my “back away” wig.

      • mhleta

        A wig like that should really come with a bottle full of mood stabilizers.

    • bxbourgie

      Oh My Goodness.  I NEED that first one so that I may strut onto the NYC subway from my house, make my way to Grand Central, sashay out into the streets, runway walk up 5th Avenue and into my office with it on and watch everyone in my office GAG from the grand epicness of it all.  Perfect.  It’s perfect!

    • Corsetmaker

      I always love their collections, corset heaven :) Fantastic fun, tongues in cheeks and all on a good grounding. 

    • formerlyAnon

      So wonderful. And so many of these were PERFECTLY evocative of the inspiration – it’s like a high quality, dream version of a PR challenge.  My favorite is the beige dress with the beaded dripping ruby red “blood.”

      This is really, really wonderful.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/3NRVRVRKJ6HZKSN4LYRYIHFBA4 kelly

      Raincoat= Blade Runner

    • Mary Gallagher

      This is fucking glorious! 

    • Zippypie

      AHAHAHAHA!  The bloody shower curtain raincoat is divine!  This is seriously fun, though I can say with certainty that I would NOT want to have Jack Nicholson’s “Here’s Johnny!” face anywhere near my ladyparts.

    • http://twitter.com/amndad amanda lynn

      I hope that some of these make their way to the RC on Sunday… that’d be awesome.  But also doubtful.

    • barbarienne

      Definitely fashion as performance art, and not to be graded on the “Would I want to wear that?” scale.

      I love the rope dress where the collar is entirely separate from the bodice. I cannot explain why, except that when I saw it it made me smile (a peculiar reaction for a collection based on horror movies, I admit). It goes into “whimsical” in some strange way.

    • Verascity

      Some of them, like The Shining and Psycho dresses, are much too literal, but I laughed out loud (in a good way) at the nude dress with the slashes of red glitter. I love The Blonds.

    • libraangel

      It is so tacky that I love them girls. And isn’t one of the dripping boobs like Ben’s dress in PR?

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Oh, holy crap, that was fun! That was really, really cool!  I mean, not only are the dresses cool, but that’s just really a good time!

    • http://www.facebook.com/poyznelf.thompson Poyznelf Thompson

      I always look forward to the pics from The Blonds shows. These were fun and quirky as usual.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1531695734 Melinda Mary

      Conceptually I love this, but not many people could get away with wearing at least half of it.  Although I’d take on the knife  dress and the fabric of the shower scene dress as a top.

    • quiltrx

      I get some of the references much more than others…but this is really fun and cool.  The first and last looks are especially amazing.

      And there’s definitely a girl inside me who would totally wear that knife dress.

    • LaSylphide

      As someone whose taste in fashion verges on ultra-conservative, I’m utterly appalled to find myself saying…I LOVE this whole collection.  A:  a sense of humor (love the fur straight jacket), and B: some wearable – if offbeat – and very pretty dresses (#2, 6,  and especially 10 and 18).

    • MK03

      The last one is Carrie couture and I LOVE IT. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YGDG5WUYES2QXPNC7BIDINE3W4 Brian

      Isn’t the chef’s knife piece from Zarkana?

    • Frank Lithium

      Drag queens, drag queens everywhere.

    • JasmineAM

      I would seriously wear nearly everything here. I would love to see these on the Red Carpet. I wholeheartedly love these pieces. The knife dress, slash dress with blood, that rain coat is TO DIE, and the two “Birds” dresses are fucking fantastic. This is totally my style–if I could afford it.

    • http://twitter.com/anibellee Lynsey M.

      I would love to see Chloe Moretz wear something from this when she starts doing press for the Carrie remake.  

    • watchmeboogie

      Love, love, love. Of course it’s costumey and silly but it’s all gorgeous. Except for the fur straightjacket which is just a walking eye-roll.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      OK, hilarious, but in a good way.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ENBX3563Q4ZNCVRGSJVFIB7OAA Thom

      Hell to the NO on the Jack Nicholson dress or the chinchilla jumpsuit. The jumpsuit, because it’s horrifically unflattering, and the Jack Nicholson dress, because there’s a giant screaming face that you can’t look away from.

    • http://cheekypinky.wordpress.com cheekypinky

      Dying of love.

    • SHAHRAM REJVANI

      It reminds me of the original THIERRY MUGLER…and how amazing his shows were……….

    • UninvitedChristopherGuest

      The Butcher Knife dress is the best one, a real artistic statement. The rest are clever but not really fashion, more so costumes or just fun jokes. The Straight Jacket fur coat is outrageously ridiculous.

    • Therese Bohn

      The nude leather bustier and skirt with the slashed and dripping with red beading is astonishing! What a frightening (yet strangely beautiful) homage to Psycho! Wow.

    • Therese Bohn

      My comment is just below this, I signed in with my Google account and my name didn’t come up this time, but I guess that doesn’t matter much. I’m Therese btw, and you know I love this site!

    • http://profiles.google.com/sauchih Sau-Chih Feng

      Wack-tastic!

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      I like the man model at the end.  

    • Kate Garner

      I think yr designs are great….BUT…. Is that REAL fur….the stuff that the original owners of the fur , have, if they r lucky, been imprisoned and tortured in small cages for all of their life and then electrocuted in their anus…. Or…. If they r UNLUCKY they have been skinned alive in China, which is we’re most of the worlds fur comes from.
      Please watch both Olivia Munns anti fur video or Stella Mcartneys anti fur video.
      If that doesn’t stop u using fur, try getting a knife and peeling back a little pice of yr skin… Then imagine someone 5 times the size of u tying u spread eagled, the starting at yr nose, yr whole skin is peeled of whilst u r still alive….. And then…. STILL alive, u r thrown onto a heap of dead humans . U lay there in unimaginable pain and despair until u die.
