Alison Mosshart: “Kills” you with her style

Alison Mosshart, also known as VV is the lead vocalist of the Kills alongside Jamie Hince (who is dating Kate Moss) and a member of the band The Dead Weather alongside Jack White, Jack Lawrence and Dean Fertita. Apart from being a tremendously talented musician, Mosshart has a clothing style all her own. With heavy dark bangs and a deep smoker’s voice, Mosshart appears to be the typical rock and roller.  However, her magazine interviews beg to differ. In an interview with Interview Magazine, she even claims that she watches Gossip Girl!! Now what kind of rock and roller are we talking about here? Apart from the all-American sweetheart she appears to be in person, Mosshart masters the art of a rock and roll performance mostly because of her kick-ass style choices. She claims her style/musical influences come from bands she admired while she was young such as The Pixies, Sonic Youth, the Velvet Underground, and The Rolling Stones…It’s also interesting to note that Mosshart learned to play the guitar after joining the Kills. She started off her love of music by singing! (like someone I know…)

Her favorite things: leopard blouses on top of old band t-shirts, jeans, gold boots by Hedi Slimane (Dior Homme)

Here are some of her best looks:

Random Obsessions…

I’ve been having some trouble getting back into blogging…my thoughts have been extremely scattered recently. So instead of forgoing blogging altogether, I’ve put together a random shamble of obsessions. Enjoy! 🙂 Fashion week is coming!

Fashionista Fridays

 

Do you ever have those days were nothing really makes sense? You want to write a post, something worthwhile, well-organized, targeted, but nothing seems to come together? I’ve been having one of those days. I’ve been scouring fashion blogs since yesterday morning and I can’t seem to centralize my ideas. So because many of my fridays spent blogging unfold in this manner, I’ve decided to dedicate a day to pure randomness which will now be forever known as “Fashionista Fridays.” All of the clutter that can’t be centralized into one post will be posted here.  Without further adieu, here is a list of random obsessions in no particular order–

V Magazine’s Summer Issue

If you love beautiful things and beautiful people, Go out and buy the magazine right now! I may be a little late on the band wagon as the issue came out at the beginning of summer, but it’s not too late! It’s still summer and the issue won’t ever cool down.  The issue focuses on the history of swimsuits.  Many of our favorite models such as Daria Werbowy, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Erin Wasson,  Natalia Vodianova, Giselle Bundchen, Raquel Zimmerman and Doutzen Kroes are featured in a swimsuit spread by Mario Testino.  The results of the photo shoot are just mesmerizing!

Rainy Day Women

The old saying “April Showers Bring May Flowers” could not be more correct. We’ve only had four days of April, but here in Boston  we’re seeing more and more wet weather. I think rain is probably one of the most confusing weather conditions to dress for. You don’t know if it’s cold rain, hot rain or somewhere in between. Frizzy hair, patchy skin, wet clothes, drippy makeup…these symptoms don’t seem too appealing. Sadly, they are the side effects of rainy weather.  While these unfortunate results of rain seem unavoidable, there are ways to still look great in the rain.  Just look at how these ladies prepare for rainy weather…
