H.E.R. in Alexandre Vauthier Couture and Dundas at the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Posted on May 28, 2021

It does our old gay hearts good to see a bunch of pop stars not only happily paying tribute to an iconic queer elder, but really nailing the fashion homages. Since Elton John was being honored that evening, Demi Lovato showed their take on the master’s style and now here comes H.E.R., absolutely doing right by him. Then again, a lot of current fashion trends seem to be taking inspiration directly from two glittering ’70s sources: Elton and Cher. We suppose given how much we’re seeing sequins, sparkles, feathers and disco-fabulousness on the runways, it’s not hard to see why the kids were able to throw together such great Elton looks.

 

ALEXANDRE VAUTHIER COUTURE

We loved it from the first scroll, but when we got the feathered bell-bottoms, we damn near applauded at our desks. This is so fabulous and so fun; a proper homage that doesn’t look like cosplay. LOVE the shades.

 

 

DUNDAS

This is just straight-up (you’ll pardon the term) flawless. The drape on those pants is exquisite and we love that she wore the appropriate height of platform, not only to do the King of Platforms right, but also to make sure her feet weren’t swallowed up. Love the sparkly mesh top. The whole look is so well styled and executed that it actually manages to be an on-point Elton homage that’s actually kind of chic.
