JESSICA DELFINO IN A COUTURE BATTLE! THIS THURSDAY!
I always loved couture as a young sassmouth in small town America where I spent many an afternoon being babysat by the most recent issue of ELLE, Seventeen (which my dad wouldn't let me read til I was Seventeen because "I wasn't 17", JANE and VOGUE. I would then put it down and put on my flannel. Well, things have changed and I don't have to wear flannel anymore -- unless I want to! But I still love that crazy couture all those skinny hags would model, hanging off their meatless bones like a tent hanging on a tree branch.
Now the time has come for me to experience couture first hand.
1. Do you love crass couture and feral fashion?
2. Do you love Jessica Delfino?
If so, you shouldn't miss this show that I'm performing/competing in. It's a fashion battle called "Style Wars". Contestants (8 groups of us of whom were hand-picked for a combo platter of performance-y type spirit meets erratic sense of fashion) will fight to the DEATH in a three round power house clothes-off!
In my corner, I am very proud to have on my fighting team Ji-won Li and Magin Schantz, two fearless scissor toting bitches who will sew our opulent opponents a new dress hole! There is cash money at stake and some serious glitz to be garnered. I'm in this to win this!
Here is more information about the show, which is THIS SATURDAY, OCT 13th at 10 PM at Don Hill. This isn't going to be a Calvin Klein cat walk, NO! This is going to be a scathing, high-energy madhouse, replete with antics, tricks, cliques, shticks, pricks, musics and kicks. Present will be the paparazzi, the press and celebrity guests, so dress to impress! If you plan to attend and would like to be on team "a few tricks up her tightly tailored sleeves" Delfino, email me and let me know! I could use a few more good women and men and I have some planzzz.
House of Diehl presents Style Wars: The Style Battle Championships
when: Sat 10.13 (10pm)
where: Don Hill's (511 Greenwich St, 212.219.2850) map
price: $12 / $8 advance
Feeling that the hip-hop set shouldn't have all the fun, House of Diehl is staging a battle tour — for couture. Aspiring designers go head-to-head with minimal materials, audience members as models, and DJs Druzzi & Mattie (Throne of Blood/the Rapture) and the Ruff Kids shredding the decks. A panel of celebrity judges — including Mick Rock, Casey Spooner, Princess Superstar, and Whitney Museum curator Shamim Momin — decides who earns a handsome cash prize and goes on to the grand finale, set for later in the year. Sit back and watch as Project Runway-style competition plays out live and gets unruly. (RB)
